The first Pilot of what will become "The Big Bang Theory". Leonard and Sheldon are two awkward scientists who share an apartment. They meet a drunk girl called Katie and invite her to stay at their place, because she has nowhere to stay. The two guys have a female friend, also a scientist, called Gilda. Written by

Much of this Pilot script was re-used almost entirely intact for the second attempt at the pilot. The most obvious differences are the Set Design & Set Dressing was completely re-designed, the 4 character dynamic was re-designed to be 4 male nerds with the new 5th female character re-positioned as a neighbor now living across the hallway. The 2 female character traits were made more sympathetic in the Penny version, and the female scientist traits in the pilot was later re-configured among the male scientists, and later the female scientists. Sheldon was also re-configured to be more insular and childlike. See more
