Storyline

In Sheldon's view, the tenants in the apartment directly above his and Leonard's are perfect neighbors since they never make any noise and he doesn't even know them. So he is horrified when he learns they are moving. Sheldon's fears are laid to rest when he questions the new tenant, Alicia, who is an aspiring actress like Penny and who answers all his questions on her living habits correctly to his specifications. Leonard, Howard and Raj, on the other hand, are more than happy as Alicia is a beautiful young woman. As Leonard, Howard and Raj fawn over Alicia, Penny becomes jealous. Penny does whatever she can to compete with Alicia and regain what she believes is the loss of her queen bee status within the group. But equally as important, Penny wants to expose Alicia's motives for her friendship with the guys. Written by Huggo

Quotes

Penny: Leonard and Howard and Raj... they aren't like other guys. They're special.
Alicia: Ok. They are special... and?
Penny: Let's see... how can I explain this? They don't know how to use their shields.
Alicia: Shields?
Penny: Yeah... you know like in Star Trek when you are in battle and you raise the shields?

Crazy Credits

CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #247 The quantum physics joke Penny tells the guys in tonight's episode was told to us by Nobel award-winning physicist, Dr. George Smoot. Penny tells it in about twenty seconds. Dr. Smoot's version probably took about three minutes, although it felt a lot longer. No one had the heart to tell him to get to the punch line, proving my hypothesis that in addition to time slowing down as you accelerate, it also grinds to a halt when you're being courteous to a genius. Thanks for the joke, Doc! See more »

The Dead Hooker Juxtaposition is another hilarious episode of "The Big Bang Theory"
8 April 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

In this very hilarious episode of "The Big Bang Theory", a gorgeous woman named Alicia moves up stairs and with the exception of Sheldon, the boys are so crazy for her that they're willing to fix her stereo and other electronic equipment and drive her to acting auditions which makes aspiring actress Penny very jealous. Plus, Penny suddenly realizes how NOT like Alicia she is when she defends her friends by using a "Star Trek" reference concerning shields! I'll stop right there and say that one of the funniest lines, as usual, came from Sheldon when, after Penny imitates Alicia sarcastically, Sheldon shares his impersonation of General Ackbar of The Empire Strikes Back by saying (in a real loud voice), "It's a trap!" Another hilarious exchange was Raj's response to the vulnerabilities of the two Green Lanterns not to mention Howard's argument with his mother when he tells her he wants to move to that upstairs apartment before Alicia comes on. I've said it before and I'll say it again, "The Big Bang Theory" rocks!
