Storyline

Penny initially declines an invitation from Amy Farrah Fowler, who considers Penny her best friend, to accompany her, Sheldon, Leonard, Howard, Raj and Bernadette to a weekend long science conference at which they'll all be speaking. Penny changes her mind when she learns that the conference is all expenses paid at a four star spa resort in Big Sur. Penny wishes she could change her mind once again when the drive to Big Sur with Leonard, Sheldon and Amy ends up being a nerd's version of a road trip. She probably wouldn't appreciate being in Bernadette, Howard and Raj's car either, the former two who are too happy in love and who demonstrate it in the drive to Big Sur. That love may be in jeopardy when at the conference, Howard meets Bernadette's handsome and 6'7" tall ex-boyfriend Glenn. An unfortunate comment from Howard to Bernadette about her former relationship with Glenn sets off a series of musical beds and musical bedrooms between the seven which culminates in a no holds barred...

At the spa hotel when Amy wants to have a girl talk with Penny, in one scene we can see Penny's foot while she's sitting on the bed, but in the next one, her foot can't be seen because she's sitting in a yoga position. And the same switch between scenes happens one more time. See more »

"The Love Car Displacement" is another excellent ep of "The Big Bang Theory"
9 October 2011 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

In this last season ep of "The Big Bang Theory": Penny is invited to go the a conference meeting with the gang. She feigns being busy for the weekend until it's mentioned it's at a spa. She ends in a car with Sheldon, Leonard, and Amy while the other one has Howard, Raj, and Bernadette. When they all arrive at the destination, Bern meets her former professor Glenn (Rick Fox) who she mentions to Howard she also dated. Uh oh, Howard is now having thoughts about inadequacy considering Glenn's size (both height and...well, you know). I'll stop there and just say that after watching the previous underwhelming ep with no Amy or Bernadette or other guest stars, this one's very much an improvement in laughs! I mean, all the Freudian terminology just adds to the hilarity especially when the conference convenes. So on that note, "The Love Car Displacement" gets a high recommendation from me. P.S. A few eps back, I mentioned that guest star Eliza Dushku was in the audience of "Dancing with the Stars" in support of a friend named Rick as a contestant. The one I referred to is the one mentioned playing Glenn and he was, probably still is, dating our fair Eliza. So when Howard gets jealous because this Glenn once was involved with his Bern, I don't blame him.
