Penny has just broken up with her latest boyfriend Mike who blogged about their sex life. Besides feeling embarrassed about the blog contents, she's angry with herself for what she sees as her poor choice in men, who all seem to fit into the same mold. After a few discussions between the two on her break-up and a few tantrums on Penny's part, Leonard finally asks Penny out on an official date. Penny agrees despite or perhaps because Leonard does not fit into that mold. Afterward, Penny has second thoughts about going on a date with Leonard and speaks to the one person who she feels can place the best perspective on it: Sheldon. Leonard too has second thoughts and speaks to his best friend, Sheldon. Using the analogy of Schrödinger's cat, Sheldon tells both individually that they have to risk opening the box to find out what's inside. Will either do so? Written by

When we first see Penny eating the ice cream, some of it is visible near the top of the carton. It dips much lower without her eating any. Also, a bag of Teddy Grahams moves around the carton on the counter with no one touching it. See more
Before we go, have you heard of Schrodinger's cat?
Oh, I have heard more than enough about Schrodinger's cat.
CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #212 I believe that the voices of fear, both from without and within, can only be dispelled by trusting the voice that comes from the heart. Be still and listen to it. If it speaks of love and compassion for others, for the world itself, it just might be the voice of God -- or a reasonable facsimile. If, however, it snarls with fear of the unknown, fear of losing what you have or of not getting what you want, then it just might be the voice of Rupert Murdoch -- or a reasonable facsimile. See more
