Storyline

As Howard is in the Soyuz space capsule awaiting the launch to the International Space Station, his new wife and their friends are at Leonard and Sheldon's apartment watching the launch on the NASA channel. Howard, still scared about dying most specifically now by a botched launch, reminisces about the lead up to what was his and Bernadette's wedding. Bernadette was the one who decided that they should get married before the launch in a small but special ceremony, with only their immediate family and closest friends in attendance. The ceremony was threatened by the fact that their first and at that time only option of a civil ceremony at city hall couldn't happen due to a backlog. But Raj came up with what they all believed was an even better second option on launch day if they could pull it off.

Sheldon Cooper: Remarkable. In just under a half hour, two hundred metric tons of fuel will ignite in a controlled explosion right beneath Howard's keister. And all from a country whose entire contribution to the global economy has been Tetris and mail-order brides.

Crazy Credits

CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #389 This may sound silly, but I had to stifle tears when we wrote the last scene of tonight's episode. The same thing happened when we rehearsed it. And then again when it was performed in front of a studio audience. And yet again when we watched the final version in an editing bay. I don't know what it is, but there's something primal, something deeply human being expressed when these characters unconsciously hold hands while watching their friend embark on a monumental journey. Speaking of which, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for watching The Big Bang Theory, for being part of our journey. I hope you've laughed a lot and stifled a little. I hope you're holding someone's hand. See you next year. See more »
