Storyline

Bernadette has just announced that her dissertation has been accepted, meaning that she will soon get her Ph.D. On top of that, she has received a lucrative job offer with a pharmaceutical company. Although Howard states that he is happy for her, the fact that everyone else in their group, who also have their Ph.D.'s, may cause a bit of problem for his ego, especially as they all kid him about being the inferior one in their relationship. Meanwhile, Leonard and Priya doing some Star Trek (1966) sex role playing in the Koothrappali apartment is a bit much for Raj to handle. Tired and needing a place to sleep, he eventually ends up asking Sheldon if he can sleep in Leonard's bed. After Leonard finds out, he suggests this move be a longer term one until Priya gets her own apartment. Having Penny as a next door neighbor may have some benefits for Raj. And Leonard accidentally learns some information about Priya's future. Written by Huggo

Trivia

When Sheldon mentions "an eye for an eye" from the Hammurabi Code, he is not quoting the Bible (although the phrase does appear in St. Matthew's Gospel) but the legal code of King Hammurabi, ruler of Babylon in the first half of the eighteenth century B.C. See more »

Goofs

Amy instructs Sheldon in self-massage and tells him to locate his acromion process. Sheldon reaches up and touches the top of the shoulder immediately next to his neck. However, his hand is in the wrong spot. The acromion process is at the opposite end of his collarbone, just above where the arm connects to the shoulder. See more »

"The Roommate Transmogrification" is a fine way to end last season's "The Big Bang Theory"
16 November 2011 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

In a nutshell on this finale of last season's "The Big Bang Theory": Bernadette announces she's getting her diploma and is being offered a job at a pharmaceutical company so she's a doctor and getting lots of money. Howard, despite being the only one not getting the respectable title his other friends now have, seems nonplussed about his fiancée's good fortune. Meanwhile, Raj-not wanting to constantly have to deal with his sister and Leonard's lovemaking-temporarily moves to Sheldon's despite the latter's making new contracts. That sister, Priya, is about to make the moves again when her parents once again visits her site. It's there Leonard finds out she's moving back to India in a month and those parents find out about their daughter's relationship with him. Very awkward. Back at Sheldon's, Penny has dinner with him and Raj with alcohol involved. After Sheldon goes to his room, the others have a conversation. If you haven't seen this ep, I don't want to spoil it for you but it leads to something even more awkward. Anyway, this was as fine as any a way to end the previous season of "The Big Bang Theory" and it's making me even more anxious to watch this season's eps. So until next time...
