Storyline

Leonard is still pining over Penny, but comes to the realization that she is out of his league when he sees her with her handsome latest date. Moving on, Leonard decides to ask out his colleague, Dr. Leslie Winkle, instead, who wants to treat this event like a sped up science experiment, with the results being more important than the process. With Leonard still thinking about Penny, Sheldon clarifies to Leonard that Penny has not rejected him since Leonard has never asked her out. But Penny's interpretation of Leonard's question makes Leonard reevaluate how to approach their "first date". Written by Huggo

Crazy Credits

CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #186 ZEN NOIR The hardest journey is the one which leads to the truth. I didn't know that when I began my little midnight ramble. If I had, I probably would've stayed home, drank myself stupid and watched Ferguson until the big nod closed my book for the day. But there I was, standing outside her house, looking up at her bedroom window while a cold rain whipped me in the face like I'd somehow pissed it off. I could see her kissing him. I could see her as she slowly descended beneath the window frame. I could see him too. He just stood there smiling, like the canary who got eaten by the cat. But then a funny thing happened while I was dancing the voyeuristic bebop in my terribly trendy, bright-green plastic shoes. I found myself thinking that the aching loneliness I was feeling had its roots in something much deeper than being eighty-sixed to a one bedroom efficiency in the marina by a dame who digs deep into the degrading bang-bang in order to make up for an emotionally distant father. No, this was the pain of existential separateness. The false sense that one is fundamentally apart from people, things, life, the whole damn universe. In a blinding flash I realized that what I was really experiencing was the result of a life-long indoctrination by a culture which elevates individualism above all else, thus causing a soul-crushing sense of aloneness which demands over and under the counter medication, the constant distraction of sporting events, TV, major motion pictures and a pop-tabloid religion based on celebrity worship/crucifixion. Of course this epiphany did not deter me from pulling the roscoe out of my fanny pack and going into the house to TC of B. As I crossed up the stairs I could feel my wet tube socks squishing through the little round holes of my polyurethane crocs. See more »

Third episode is another charming one for "The Big Bang Theory"
8 October 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

After playing some computer games with his friends, Leonard overhears his crush, Penny, giggling outside. Turns out she's kissing a guy which Leonard finds out about when he brings her mail which he stole earlier. Since Penny's with someone, Leonard tries to make a move on a female lab partner named Leslie (Sara Gilbert, a former co-star of Johnny Galecki's on "Roseanne"). Nothing there, so now Leonard tells Sheldon his feelings of Penny rejecting him. Sheldon points out that Leonard never asked Penny for a date. So Leonard asks Penny, after she reveals she dumped her guy, for dinner which Penny thinks is with his friends. Although the dinner is awkward, they do make small talk and all seems to go well until Leonard hits his head under the table and asks Penny if that's ketchup she sees on the floor. Back home, Penny says goodbye unaware she and Leonard had their first date while Leonard tells his friends how "great" it was...Plenty of pretty funny lines especially Sheldon's. Amusing brief appearance by Ms. Gilbert. A short interlude in an older singles dance class is a highlight. Hope "The Big Band Theory" did better ratings-wise this week. Will post again next week...
