Episode complete credited cast:


It's Thursday night, which in Sheldon's world means that the guys are coming over for pizza. However, Leonard informs him that he's going over to Raj's to hang out with Priya, with Howard most-likely being there as well, so Sheldon is more than welcome to come along. Sheldon does go, but it's just not the same. But what bothers him more is what Amy tells him the night signifies: that Leonard is the nucleus of their group, not him. To prove Amy wrong, Sheldon, on the next night that Leonard says he's hanging out with Priya, Raj and Howard at Raj's place, plans a gathering of his own at their apartment with his new group of mismatched "friends": Stuart from the comic book store, Penny's old boyfriend Zack, and Barry Kripke (with LeVar Burton a probable no show, although Sheldon did tweet him about the gathering).

Sheldon has so far never done his signature knock for Howard. This episode marks the closest he has gotten, as "All my friends" presumably includes Howard. See more »

Penny: So, where do you guys want to go dancing?
Bernadette Rostenkowski: We were hoping you'd know a place.
Amy Farrah Fowler: Yes, perhaps somewhere packed tightly with young beautiful bodies, sweating and writhing against each other in a glorious orgy of the flesh.
Penny: Oh yeah, I know that place.

Clap clap Jim Parsons

This episode begins with Sheldon finding out he's not the center of his group of friends anymore. So once he notices that, he plans to invite some new friends to show the geeks he doesn't need them. As provided, it doesn't work well, since they hate Sheldon's speeches and begin to play karaoke. In Penny's apartment, she, Amy and Bernadette plan to go out and kiss some guys. In these scenes there are many appealing jokes that it's impossible not to laugh, while we feel Amy is losing her geek mind.

Overall, in this episode Sheldon steals the show as usual and has most of all the funny jokes. It's great to notice that the writers are varying the characters and showing us that they're all very talented. Jim Parsons is an extremely good actor and proves it here once again.
