  • One of the funniest, if not the funniest, episode so far.

    The very beginning with Penny breaking down and crying was kind of a turn off. I like Kaley Cuoco, just not when she cries on camera, it's so fake. However, the humor of Sheldon's actions in contrast to the character of Penny makes my wife and I laugh. This is one of the funniest episodes because it's focus is on the Penny/Sheldon 'friendship' instead of the Leonard/Penny love interest. Sheldon's quips with Penny's replies made it follow a classic comedy rule. This is a certain stand-alone episode that people could watch and just enjoy because if you've never watched the show before you're not confused, you're entertained. One of the best things about this comedy.
