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...

CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #325
I have a recurring dream that I've been drafted to play on an NBA team. This is a very upsetting dream because I can't really play basketball. I mean, I play pretty much how you'd expect a middle-aged Jewish comedy writer to play. The words clumsy, hesitant, clueless, short and frightened come to mind. During the dream I'm well aware of my grotesque lack of talent. I run up and down the court hoping the ball doesn't come my way, all the while wondering why the coach doesn't take me out. Even me executing an uncontested lay-up or free throw seems like an impossible, or at least unlikely, event. Assuming dreams work as metaphor and I'm not really subconsciously afraid of having to go mano a mano with Kobe or LeBron, the question I find myself asking is, what in my life do I feel fully engaged in and yet completely unqualified for? The answer is simple: intimate relationships. Once again, the words clumsy, hesitant, clueless, short and frightened come to mind. Well, not short... average. See more
