  • Trivia

    • At the end of the episode, just as Leonard get's off the phone with Pria you can tell that he's sitting in Sheldon's spot. He never sit's in sheldon's spot.

    • In this episode, Stewart congratulates Leonard on picking up a girl at the comic book store saying "this is the closest anyone has ever come" and takes a picture of him for a "wall of heroes", however back in season 2 in the episode "The Hofstader Isotope", Stewart himself had similar success with Penny in the comic book store.

    • The mask that Leonard uses to scare Sheldon is of "Balok", a character that appeared in the Star Trek episode, "The Corbomite Maneuver".

  • Quotes

    • Howard: Who had money on "faints?"
      Rajesh: I had "pee his pants."
      Leonard: Hang on, looks like everyone's a winner!

    • Sheldon: (reading 'bloody' wall') "See you in hell Sheldon." The most frightening thing about that is the missing comma!
