Storyline

In the aftermath of Raj and Penny's night together from which Raj believes he's in love with her, everyone seems to be mad at Raj. Although he has no intention of getting back together with Penny despite Priya having moved back to India, Leonard is mad at Raj for sleeping with his old girlfriend. Leonard turns to an unlikely source for advice about his feelings. Howard is mad at Raj for taking his supposed place as second in line (after Leonard) in Penny's loins. Howard is also mad at Raj when it comes to light that Raj fantasized about Bernadette. And Bernadette is mad a Raj for making Howard think that there was something going on between them. While Penny takes refuge away from the guys at Amy's, she contemplates her future, which includes thoughts of moving back to Nebraska since her acting career is no career at all.

Crazy Credits

CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #349

Every night before going to bed, he would brush his teeth and make a preemptive attempt to void his bladder. He then walked into his closet, got on his knees in front of the shoe rack and prayed to a god whose unlikely existence he likened to an ongoing quantum event. In his mind, the act of kneeling mattered not at all to this supposed god. He could just as well pray standing naked on his head with his ass serving as a fleshy vase for a bouquet of flowers. The penitential pose was only useful as a demonstration of his humility in the face of the infinite (although when things were going his way, it was more of a feigned humility). The prayers themselves mostly consisted of thanking his sub-atomic almighty verb for assembling an infrastructure that allowed for life to exist. This included, in no particular order, the various laws of physics, gravity, organic chemistry and thermodynamics. And, since it was his belief that sentient life was created by an insentient universe in order for the insentient universe to be admired, he made an effort in his prayers to tell the insentience, "nice work" or "way to go". Finally, he would close with a plea for this nameless everything to look after the less fortunate. "Please god, despite the clear evidence that it's not in your nature to care, bring love and happiness to all the souls who suffer." Then, his heart filled with grace, he would climb into bed and sleep peacefully until he dreamed he was standing in his closet and peeing on his shoes - god's clever way of telling him he had to wake up and go to the bathroom.

The more things change, the more they stay the same... a good start to a season of changes
31 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

That expression is a recurring theme throughout Season 5 . The story picks up where we left off the end of Season 4 with Sheldon analyzing Penny's claim that "It's not what it looks like" in true Sheldon fashion. Leonard seems disinterested in Sheldon's musings, knowing that Penny slept with Raj just after learning that Priya was moving back to India. Penny, feeling that her acting career is going nowhere, considers moving back to Nebraska until she gets a role on a new TV commercial. This episode also marks the first instance of Amy crushing on Penny, but for now seems more like envy rather than hinting Amy's a closet bisexual. All is resolved once Raj reveals nothing really happened sexually, and the 4 guys can focus on a favorite hobby of theirs-- paintball.
