Storyline

Starting with Penny to Amy, a rumor quickly spreads amongst Leonard, Sheldon, Raj and Priya that Bernadette is planning on breaking up with Howard. This rumor is especially of interest to Raj since despite being Howard's best friend, he has always been in love with Bernadette himself. Additional news comes to light directly from Howard, who is planning on asking Bernadette to marry him. Based on the rumor, the rest of gang believe that Howard is in for a major let-down, much to Raj's excitement. But will Howard go through with his plan and if he does, will the rumor prove to be true? Meanwhile, Amy and Sheldon, watching the speed with which the rumor has spread, propose another social science experiment of starting two rumors - one of a salacious nature, and one more mundane - to see how quickly both spread amongst the group.

Quotes

[first lines]
Brian Greene: My new book, 'The Hidden Reality', takes on a grand question: Is *our* universe the only universe? You see, there's a growing belief among scientists like me that ours may only be one among many universes populating a gigantic cosmos. In 'The Hidden Reality' I explore this possibility without presuming any knowledge of mathematics or physics on the part of the reader.
Sheldon: [to Amy] Hysterical.
Amy: [to Sheldon] I'm glad you talked me into this. We work so hard sometimes it's nice to goof off ...

Gossip abounds on "The Herb Garden Germination" ep of "The Big Bang Theory"
14 November 2011 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

In a nutshell about this last season ep of "The Big Bang Theory": Sheldon and Amy decide to spread some gossip to test a theory. So they talk about Bernadette breaking up with Howard. Only the last two are unaware about what's being talked about. When Raj hears about it, he's thrilled but tells his friends it's his "smile of sadness". But Howard has other plans...One of the best eps that came from the previous season of "TBBT". Also one of the most touching. Amy and Sheldon were really on fire this time. Raj is particularly hilarious here. And I loved seeing Penny's reactions. I think that's all I'll comment on this particular edition.
