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

Goofs

When Leonard, Sheldon, Raj, and Howard are playing their game in the beginning, they reference the word Azeroth which is the name of the world essentially in the Warcraft series, implying that they are playing World of Warcraft. World of Warcraft actually does not have a "Sword of Azeroth". See more »

Quotes

Wolowitz: So, how did it go with Leslie?
Leonard: We tried kissing but the earth didn't move. I mean any more than the 383 miles it was gonna move anyway.

Crazy Credits

In the opening scroll of the time line when it gets to 91,000 there is a mistake the dates read 93,000BC 92,000BC 91,0009C 90,000BC for some reason 91,000 is a 9c not a BC. 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...
