    One phrase will draw you here - 'Sheldon goes to a Bachelor party'.

    One phrase will get you to stay - 'Raj gets drunk and gives a speech'.

    While this may not be the best episode of the season, this goes a long way in expanding Wolowitz's character and his and Bernadette's relationship. Wolowitz celebrates his lacklustre (as promised to Bernadette) bachelor's party with his friends where Raj gets drunk and reveals several embarrassing stories of Howard's past sexual experiences. The recorded video goes viral and Bernadette second guesses the marriage.

    While it is evident that the season will end with their marriage, the series shows no sign of losing steam. All the main characters are used pretty well, including a nice cameo by Wil Wheaton. Howard is the center of this episode, yet this episode forces us to explore how each character is in some sort of a relationship, whether it be the Howard-Bernadette marriage, Leonard-Penny on/off beta-testing relationship, Sheldon-Amy's what-can-you-call-it? or Raj's loneliness/dependency on Howard. The writing is pretty solid taking us through the comedy of the beginning to the emotional highs of the middle where Bernadette may break off the marriage to a final solemn resolution. A great watch.
