Storyline

Penny asks a favor of Leonard and Sheldon: to let the furniture delivery men into her apartment when they make the delivery of her recent purchase. She gives them a key to her apartment for this task. Leonard and Sheldon regret agreeing to do so when first the delivery men will not carry the delivery up the four flights of stairs, and second when they see the pigsty that is Penny's apartment, which just does not sit right with Sheldon's orderly attitude. Penny also ends up regretting asking them when Sheldon uses the key to sneak into her apartment at night when she is sleeping to tidy up, a task in which Leonard participates. Can Penny ever forgive them for violating her personal space, regardless of how immaculate the apartment looks? Written by Huggo

Did You Know?

Trivia

Sheldon mentions the Mandelbrot Set of complex numbers. He's referring to a set of points in the complex plane that is self-replicating according to a predetermined rule such that the boundary of the set has fractal dimensions, which is most often used in the study of fractal geometry. See more »

Goofs

When bringing Penny's furniture up to her apartment, Leonard and Sheldon lay the box on the stairs and Leonard states "Now we've got an inclined plane. Force required to lift is reduced by the sine of the angle of the stairs..." This is incorrect, as the force required to lift it stays the same. The force required to push the box up the stairs is half of that required to lift it. See more »

Quotes

Sheldon: I am truly sorry for what happened last night. I take full responsibility and I hope it won't color your opinion of Leonard, who is not only a wonderful guy but also, I hear, a gentle and thorough lover.

Crazy Credits

CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #184 Don't fall for a woman who has had sex with one of your rock n'roll heroes. No matter how emotionally evolved you think you are, you will never enjoy listening to Eric Clapton again. Don't lurk around web sites where people comment about your work unless you're drunk. Don't use emoticons. You're too old to communicate like a twelve year old girl. Don't forget that you are the product of a culture that went stark raving mad about ten thousand years ago. Adjust your thinking accordingly. Don't answer TV critics question about the state of TV comedy. It's a trap. Don't eat anything bigger than your head. True in the sixties, true today. Don't believe that crap that you're as young as you feel. Your feelings lie. Don't hug men while shaking their hand. Enough already with that. The shake/hug (shug?) is probably something Roman guys did when their empire was in decline. See more »

Second episode of "The Big Bang Theory" is another funny one worth watching
2 October 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

In a nutshell, Sheldon and Leonard are moving a heavy box into Penny's apartment which they discover is a mess. Sheldon, being a narcissistic clean freak attempts to clean it up but stops when Penny arrives. He later comes back while Penny is asleep with Leonard reluctantly helping. When she finds out, Penny bans them from her place. After talking with the quiet one of their friends, she changes her mind...This was another pretty funny episode of "The Big Bang Theory" that had a hilarious exchange in the beginning between Sheldon and Leonard when, after inviting Penny for a Superman marathon in their apartment, they debate how Superman could or could not logically rescue Lois Lane from a helicopter fall in mid-air. Loved also the physical comedy involving them moving the heavy box up the stairs to Penny's apartment. Well worth viewing between "How I Met Your Mother" and "Two and a Half Men". Hope CBS keeps this one on the air for awhile!
