Howard has been chosen to work on the Defense Department's Laser Equip Surveillance Satellite project. He needs security clearance to work on the project which means the FBI will be interviewing each of Sheldon, Leonard and Raj. The interviews conducted by Special Agent Page, who is a beautiful young woman, don't go quite as each would hope. Because Agent Page is a woman, Raj can't speak to her until he gets drunk, and still then he believes her sole goal is to deport him back to India. Woman hungry Leonard decides to try his new confident persona to pick her up, which has unintended consequences. And Sheldon wants to speak more about his past encounter with the FBI than about Howard. Amidst these innocent topics of conversation, Sheldon inadvertently mentions the time when Howard crashed the Mars Rover when he was trying to impress a woman without security clearance.

The capybara is the largest member of the rodent family.

CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #309 Following Kaley Cuoco's horseback riding injury, I've instituted new rules governing acceptable leisure activities for the cast of The Big Bang Theory. 1. No friggin' horses. This includes those found on merry-go-rounds and in front of supermarkets. 2. The only motorcycle you can get on is the one you're accidentally crushing in your big-ass, air-bagged SUV. 3. All cast member motor vehicles must adhere to U.S. Army guidelines for attacking Kandahar. (Galecki's Tesla is a terrifically fuel efficient vehicle but is essentially a hundred thousand dollar go-cart. From now on it is only to be used for backing down his driveway and retrieving mail.) 4. The only permissible boating activity at Comic-Con is in your hotel room bathtub. 5. Alcohol should only be ingested at home, and while seated in a big comfy chair. Wild and carefree dancing that celebrates your incredible and well-deserved success is only allowed on New Year's Eve, and only with a sober celebrity parasitic flunky to lean on. 6. And finally, sexual acts must be performed while horizontal. Certain high-risk Kama Sutra positions might be allowed, but only after consultation with Chuck Lorre. Like with dancing, a spotter might be required. See more
