Penny wishes Leonard a happy birthday which she knows is this upcoming Saturday, when she expects him to at least come in for his free piece of birthday cake at the restaurant. She is shocked to learn that Leonard not only does not celebrate his birthday, but that he's never had a birthday party. Regardless of Leonard's wants, Penny decides to throw him a surprise party. Although she gets help from Sheldon, Howard and Raj, the preparation for the party does not go to her plans, including needing to help Sheldon buy a gift, Howard not being able to get Leonard out of the apartment, and Raj not being able to decorate the apartment since Leonard's there. Will Leonard enjoy his first birthday party after all this difficult effort? Written by

The entire institution of gift giving make no sense. Let's say that I go out, and I spend 50 dollars on you, it's a laborious activity, because I have to imagine what you need, where as you know what you need. Now I could simplify things, just give you the 50 dollars directly, and you could give me 50 dollars on my birthday, and so on, until one of us dies, leaving the other one old and 50 dollars richer. And I ask, is it worth it?
