Episode Summary

When the University reassigns Sheldon's parking spot to Wolowitz, their fight affects the whole gang.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Disappointed

    Really? Fighting over a spot he doesn't even use? Sheldon may have weird habits, but a genius wouldn't bother about something as stupid as that. He'd may care about Leonard's spot since it's one he actually uses, but this? I'm deeply disappointed with this episode. Even more because Amy and Bernadette got into that clich girlfriend fight. Raj is my favorite but oh my goodness, that zombie story was the most boring thing ever. Whenever he used to think of those weird things... they were always clever and funnier... this one was simply boring. The sixth season had been great... until the 8th and this one. Both sucked really hard. Sheldon used to act like a genius but sadly he's now acting like a child. The rest of the characters are too stereotyped and even the jokes aren't that funny anymore :(moreless
  • my favorite episode of the season, so far

    I don't know why a lot of people are bashing this episode. This is one of my favorites of the whole series. It broke up the cliche and overdone themes of the series to try something new. And so far, the whole season has just been a back and forth between Penny-Leonard and Howard-Benadette. The pacing and progression was perfect, with Sheldon and Howard each out-doing each other in revenge. And the ending was hilarious.

  • I think I hate Sheldon

    Just when you thought the Big bang theory had bounced back due to excellent previous episode, It falls down even worse. Sheldon once again is Annoying, Childlike and irritating. I can understand him obsessing about hygiene and his spot on the couch but about a Parking spot you don't even use? I was glad to see Sheldon and Howard fight but things took a dark turn when Howard tries to run him over. WTF!!!!!! I fight with My friends but I don't try to run them over. I know it was supposed to be funny but that was a step to far.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (2)

    • (Sheldon is sitting in Howard's parking spot doing work, Howard tries to park there)
      Howard: OK, you need to move now.
      Sheldon: No I don't.
      Howard: You can't stay there forever.
      Sheldon: Actually, I have a plastic baggie strapped to my leg that says I can. Give up, Wolowitz, you've chosen to tangle with a superior intellect you can't defeat. There is nothing you can possibly do to--(Howard lays on the horn, Sheldon puts on a pair of oversized headphones)
      Howard: Those aren't going to help you Sheldon!
      Sheldon: Oh yes they are! I mean what?

    • Bernadette: So, did you spend last night hearing about this silly parking space fight, too?
      Amy: For hours. Fortunately, I couldn't understand most of it 'cause Sheldon was wearing that stupid robot mask.
      Bernadette: Howard was so angry I had to mash up Benadryl in his ice cream to get him to fall asleep.
      Amy: I guess this is what we get for being with two testosterone-fueled alpha males. At some point, they're bound to lock horns.
      Penny: I'm assuming these are some kind of horns they bought at Comic-Con?
      Bernadette: I'm really sorry they took Sheldon's spot away. He shouldn't have to suffer just because Howard's such a big deal now.
      Amy: I know, Sheldon should just let Howard have his little moment in the sun.
      Bernadette: What's that supposed to mean?
      Amy: Well, Howard's never gonna go to space again, but Sheldon will always be a genius.
      Bernadette: You're right. And I'm sure Sheldon will get a fancy parking spot again, if and when he makes a worthwhile contribution to science.
      Amy: If and when?
      Penny: Okay, maybe we should change the subject. Amy, how are your lady parts? Still chilly down there?
      Bernadette: Hang on. None of Sheldon's theories have ever been definitively proven. My husband actually went to outer space.
      Amy: That's an impressive accomplishment. He's now an inspiration to millions of Americans who know you don't have to be special or even qualified to go into space.
      Penny: You know, I remember the first time I got a bikini wax. My sister did it with melted Crayolas and duct tape. (laughing) It's a bad idea...
      Bernadette: Gosh, Amy. I'm sensing a little hostility. Is it maybe because, like Sheldon's work, your sex life is also theoretical? (Amy is shocked.)
      Penny: (tries not to laugh) Damn.
      Amy: Yeah, well, at least when we do make love, Sheldon won't be thinking about his mother.
      (Penny and Bernadette are shocked.)
      Amy: And yes, that is a cleverly veiled reference to Howard's lifelong obsession to crawl back into her spacious womb.
