Penny has the role of Mimi in a one-day workshop stage production of Rent, and asks Leonard and Sheldon if they want to go see her perform. Based on hearing Penny sing badly, Leonard and Sheldon decline, with Leonard even lying to her to get out of it. Sheldon is feeling uncomfortable in being a part of Leonard's lie, so he takes proactive measures to get out of that lie. Sheldon's actions don't hurt Penny but rather confuse Leonard. But Sheldon takes his proactive measure to the extreme, utilizing the hidden talents of Toby Loobenfeld, a research assistant in the particle physics lab. Written by

This episode is the first time that Sheldon's trademark knock turns up, when he knocks on Leonard's bedroom door. There are two previous episodes in which Sheldon knocks on a door (actually Penny's door): S01E02 "The Big Bran Hypothesis" and S01E05 "The Hamburger Postulate", but in both he knocks 'normally'.

When Raj calls 'shotgun' for the drive to Long Beach, Sheldon tells him that Leonard must sit in the front or he becomes 'nauseous'. Sheldon is notorious for correcting grammar, and would never have made the error of saying 'nauseous' instead of 'nauseated'. In fact, he makes a point of correcting this exact mistake in the final episode of season one. See more
No, see, the liquid metal terminators were created in the future by Skynet, and Skynet was developed by Miles Dyson but that future no longer exists due to Dyson's death in Terminator 2.
Okay. Then riddle me this: assuming all the good Terminators were originally evil Terminators created by Skynet but then reprogrammed by the future John Connor, why would Skynet, an artificial computer intelligence, bother to create a petite, hot, 17-year old killer robot?
Skynet is kinky? I dunno.
CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #198 Censored! Well, wouldn't ya' know it. Just two episodes back from the strike and I've already managed to write a vanity card that is completely unacceptable to the good folks at CBS. I wasn't trying to offend. Honest. I just saw an opportunity to poke some proverbial fun, to knosh on the hand that feeds, if you will. They were not amused. If you would like to read my latest exercise in poor judgment, I'm sure you can find it somewhere on that thing we writers were striking to claim dominion over. Just to be on the safe side, I apologize in advance. Please know that my aim was only to provoke a bit of gaiety through the judicious use of a little thing I like to call "the truth." Unfortunately, in the television business, the truth rarely sets anyone free. More often than not, it just pisses them off. See more
