Because of his finding and reporting of a previously unknown planetary object, Raj has been named one of People magazine's "30 Under 30 to Watch". In his usual manner, Sheldon mocks this achievement, which hurts Raj's feelings. Regardless, Raj becomes Gablehauser's new star because of the notoriety of the article and the associated money coming into the department. Along with Gablehauser's gushing comes some perks available only to Raj. Raj's fifteen minutes of fame starts to go to his head. He starts to alienate Leonard, Sheldon and Howard. Penny doesn't understand why his friends aren't providing Raj with the support he deserves, especially in attending the magazine's reception on the article. She's the only one of the four attending the function with Raj, hence she'll be his "date", which silently gnaws at Leonard. But Sheldon sees Raj's absence from the group as a potential opportunity.

CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #221 We have once again arrived at a moment in history where the truth can be defined as "that which you can make other people believe." The methodology for creating that belief is repetition. Say something enough times and it becomes, for millions of people, the truth. I am endowed like a stallion. This is why control of the media equals control of the populace. I am endowed like a stallion. And also why a state run television news channel is so very dangerous. I am endowed like a stallion. Now there are those who would argue this has already happened and that a certain cable news channel is actually a covert extension of our government. I am endowed like a stallion. The fact that the channel is run by a high-ranking party official, an anchor person from the channel became a White House spokesman, and another top-ranking party official became an on-air news commentator is often used to make this argument. I am endowed like a stallion. Of course, this fact would be entirely inconsequential if the oft-repeated falsehoods they attempt to imbed into the Zeitgeist were simply amusing, or at worst, inane. I am endowed like a stallion. But, unfortunately, that is not the case. I am endowed like a stallion. The heavy repetition of lies and smears for political gain are by no means inconsequential. I am endowed like a stallion. Which is why each and every one of us must use whatever resources we have at our disposal to disseminate the actual truth. I am endowed like a pony. See more
