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

Howard Wolowitz: Now, where were we?
Bernadette: I believe you were about to rip off my uniform with your teeth.
Howard Wolowitz: Bernadette? What are you doing here?
Bernadette: Well, if I had to guess I'd say I'm here because you saw me earlier this evening and you're still hung up on me.
Howard Wolowitz: No, I'm not.
Katee Sackhoff: Clearly you are. Otherwise, based on past experience, we'd be done by now.

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 »

Howard gets a fine showcase in "The Hot Troll Deviation" ep of "The Big Bang Theory"
1 October 2011 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

In this last season ep of "The Big Bang Theory": At the Cheesecake Factory, Howard sees ex-girlfriend Bernadette at a distance and hides under the table. It seems even after months after the breakup, he didn't tell why it happened. He later explains it to Penny after tricking her to open the door using Sheldon's voice on a recorder calling her name three times and knocking as much. I won't reveal it here so let's go on. Oh, and he also has dream encounters with Katee Sackhoff and...George Takei?...Hilarious ep with a welcome return of Melissa Rauch as Bernadette. And the convo between Sheldon and Raj is priceless here. So on that note, "The Hot Troll Deviation" comes highly recommended.
