Storyline

Leonard and Sheldon make an orientation presentation to the incoming graduate physics class, most of whom have a "deer in the headlights" look when listening to Sheldon's speech. One student in particular, though, looks that way for a different reason. Ramona Nowitzki is enthralled with everything about Sheldon. Sheldon is oblivious to Ramona's romantic intentions, despite her being obvious in her pursuit. He does however enjoy the idolatry she bestows upon him, and the associated slave work she does for him. Leonard, Howard, Raj and Penny are amazed by what is happening between the two - especially Penny, who has never discussed with the guys what Sheldon uses as a sexual surrogate - and watch the interaction whenever they can out of pure curiosity except when it gets to be too embarrassingly gross in their view. But does even Sheldon have a limit on how much idol worship he can take? Written by Huggo

Crazy Credits

CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #223 (CENSORED) OPEN LETTER TO SUMNER REDSTONE Dear Sumner, Just saw that you're single again. I'm sorry, dude. Love hurts. I too have recently returned to being the loneliest number. Which is what got me to thinking that maybe you and me could hang out, you know, hit some clubs, chat up the ladies. I've gotta believe you'd make a killer wingman (ooh, great idea for a dating/reality show: "Prenup Chuck and the Endless Sumner"). I also saw that you're going through a little tough time in the ol' money department. Not to worry. The drinks are on me. You can tip the waitress... if you promise not to marry her! (Just kidding. I kid the moguls. Ask Rupert.) Your pal, Chuck See more »

The Cooper-Nowitzki Theorem was another hilarious episode of "The Big Bang Theory"
17 March 2009 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

In this episode, Sheldon-after lecturing some new students about how dreary their futures will be-gets a new admirer named Romona to do his bidding. While Sheldon's ego is indeed stoked, she threatens to be a "Yoko Ono" (as illustrated by a song with that name playing as score). How he gets rid of his "stalker", I won't reveal here. I will say Sheldon doesn't learn his lesson...Another hilarious episode of "The Big Bang Theory" this was! Particularly funny was when Penny asked, "What's Sheldon's deal?" and the theories thought up by Howard and Leonard with Howard's a WTF moment at the end! Also dig the couple of times Penny says, "Holy crap on a cracker!" Or Leslie referring to Sheldon as "dumbass"!
