Storyline

When Leslie Winkle asks Leonard to join the faculty string quartet, he has no idea that it may lead to more personal endeavors, especially as their first and only experience in dating each other went nowhere. Leonard's not sure how to reconcile his feelings for immediate sex with Leslie versus his want to date Penny, especially if Penny finds out that he is in a potential relationship. Sheldon's not sure what the protocol is when a roommate has a spontaneous "guest". But Sheldon is aware that by the end of Leonard and Leslie's encounter, he feels violated. And Leonard's feelings may change when he understands Leslie's motivations. Written by Huggo

Trivia

Sheldon doesn't appear to have a problem with Leslie Winkle as he would later. In fact, when calling Leonard, he sends her his best. Yet, the fact that she changed the equation on his board may have changed this. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Sheldon Cooper: All right. I'm moving my infantry division, augmented by a battalion of orcs from Lord of the Rings. We fight the Tennessee Volunteers, and the North once again wins the Battle of Gettysburg.
Howard Wolowitz: Not so fast. Remember the South still has two infantry divisions, plus Superman and Godzilla.
Leonard Hofstadter: No, no, no no. Orcs are magic; Superman is vulnerable to magic. Not to mention, you already lost Godzilla to the Illinois Cavalry and Hulk.
Raj Koothrappali: Why don't you just have Robert E. Lee charge the line with ...

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 »

Fifth episode of "The Big Bang Theory" is another funny outing
22 October 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Leonard, Sheldon, and their two friends are at Penny's restaurant playing a game that mixes Civil War generals with various sci-fi heroes. Penny tells them they have to order something or they'll get thrown out. Leslie, Leonard's lab partner, comes by and asks if he'll agree to play cello for her music group. He agrees. Once there, Leslie has to make obvious what her intentions are so Leonard doesn't get confused. Meanwhile, Sheldon asks Penny over to his place in order to get her to tell him what the tie on Leonard's door with music playing inside means. With Penny now knowing about Leonard and Leslie, Leonard makes his move on Leslie but she tells him she won't be available to him "until at least New Year's". So a relationship is over before it really began...Another funny episode of "The Big Bang Theory" with the welcome return of Sara Gilbert as Leslie. Many funny double-entendres abound. Most of the best lines, as usual, come from Sheldon. Glad to know this show is doing well for the CBS Monday lineup. Will post another review next week...
