Storyline

Raj's sister, Priya, a corporate lawyer, has a 24 hour layover in Los Angeles on her way to Toronto on a work trip. When the guys met her the first and only time five years ago when she last was in Los Angeles, Howard and Leonard made a "pinky swear" pact not to hit on her, much to Raj's pleasure as he wanted and still wants to protect his little, innocent sister. Priya ends up not being so innocent as she wants to have a casual fling with Leonard on this trip, he who complies and would actually want it to be more than just casual. When Sheldon catches Priya in their apartment when she shouldn't be there, Sheldon devises an elaborate but totally implausible alibi for Leonard in the probability - at least in Sheldon's mind - that Raj and or Howard will ask. This incident brings up the issue of betrayal amongst the four friends. Written by Huggo

Leonard wants Sheldon to keep a secret in "The Irish Pub Formulation" ep of "The Big Bang Theory"
2 October 2011 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

In this last season ep of "The Big Bang Theory": Raj's sis Priya (Aarti Mann) has come for a short visit with Raj warning Howard and Leonard to not hit on her. Howard reminds Raj about Bernadette but Leonard says nothing. That's because Priya has already hit on him and he reciprocates! They manage to spend the night in Leonard's apartment without Sheldon-who's busy with a video game-knowing but it's different when Priya has to leave the next morning. So in order to honor Leonard's request to not tell the others, Sheldon makes up a story about a red-headed Irish waitress at a bar who had designs on Leonard. Leonard simply wants his roommate to zip his lip but that's not so easy...Another very funny episode of "TBBT" especially when the confessions come fast and furious near the end. So on that note, "The Irish Pub Formulation" is highly recommend. BTW, if you're wondering why Kaley Cuoco is not in this one, she had broken a leg horse riding before the filming and was in the process of healing it.
