Storyline

Howard is still uncomfortable in even seeing Bernadette, which is obvious when he spots her at work at the Cheesecake Factory. But when Bernadette enters his dreams instead of his usual fantasy girl, Howard wonders if Bernadette would be willing to get back together with him despite the embarrassing reason why she broke up with him. Penny vows to help him only if he discloses to her the reason for the break-up. Howard gets a little advice from two other unlikely sources. Meanwhile, Raj is mad at Sheldon for not letting him have a desk in their shared office. But once Sheldon reluctantly agrees only on the condition that Raj pay for it himself, Raj decides to exact his own form of revenge, which escalates into an all out office war. Written by Huggo

Quotes

Katee Sackhoff: George, let me ask you something: how did you deal with being typecast as a science fiction icon?
George Takei: It's difficult. You try and stretch as an actor, do Strinberg, O'Neill, but all they want is "Course laid in, Captain."
Katee Sackhoff: Tell me about it. It's frakking frustrating.

Crazy Credits

CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #300 300. An auspicious card. To me. At the very least it represents my having had a hand in writing and producing three hundred episodes of television. Some of which were pretty good. Some of which were... in color. Additionally, it means that on three hundred separate occasions I tried to turn my one second of network time into a form of entertainment. Or, if you prefer, a form of inflammation. Some of the vanity cards were, like the TV shows preceding them, pretty good. Others were... grammatically correct. But still. 300. That has to count for something, right? That's gotta be worth some kind of attaboy. I'm certainly not being paid to write these things. In fact, there are several people at CBS and Warners who'd probably pay me to not write them. (Mental note: Look into setting up a blind auction predicated on the idea that, for the right price, I would permanently change my written vanity card to a cute picture. Maybe a photo from my most recent colonoscopy. Let's see what the market fetches.) Anyway, this is my three hundredth vanity card. I really wanted to write something that was as important as the number seemed to imply. I'm pretty sure I've failed. Attaboy! See more »

This one hits the ball out of the park

There are certain episodes of great shows that leave me in tears every time I see them, if I have a bad day it makes very easy to put anything into perspective. These are those moments that define great comedy entertainment. In my case; The Star Mitzvah episode of Frasier in the 90's, Dan Ackroyd as Fred Garvin on SNL in the 70's, this episode of Big Bang Theory (B.B.T.) In the Hot Troll Deviation everyone's characters are "spot on" (yes I am Quoting Raj) the guest stars are hilarious and just work so well in the show. You don't see Amy or Sheldon's Mother, Lauri Metcalf who just kills in her cameo role but I don't think you could fit either of them in. This is why I love this show, timing, writing, guest stars the science topics. The B.B.T. just shines and doesn't seem to get dull. OK, I am a geek that probably helps a lot.
