Howard and Raj have a boys' night in together as Raj wants to watch a horror movie - such movies which he doesn't like or understand why anyone would like - as Emily wants to watch it with him. He wants to take a test run so that he can both understand what Emily sees in them, and not be embarrassed by whatever shocks may occur during his viewing with Emily. Meanwhile, to get Sheldon's mind off of what he will now do with his professional life since giving up on the idea of string theory, Leonard suggests they re-institute "Anything Can Happen" Thursdays, and have a spontaneous evening out. With Howard and Raj already preoccupied, Bernadette needing to work late, and Amy under the weather, this first Thursday out will only be comprised of Leonard, Sheldon and Penny. What happens on this first night out may threaten Penny's friendship with Bernadette and Amy, and her relationship with Leonard, while strengthening her bond with Sheldon. Written by

So, we're about to shoot this scene in a movie where the killer ape DNA is slowly taking over my body.

CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #455
I'd like to take this opportunity to apologize to all the people who were offended by this years' vanity cards. Please know that was never my goal. As always, each essay (blurb?) was written in the hopes that it might initiate a little conversation and laughter.* But, best laid plans, right? If by reading any of them you have concluded that I'm a horrible person, I hope you'll give me another chance. I think that if you got to know me, your loathing would melt away and, in time, blossom into indifference.
- In my imagination, the conversation and laughter would be something like:
"Heh, heh, that Lorre guy's kinda clever!"
"Yes - heh, heh - he just makes the words sing."
"Sing? Please. This is not literature. I mean, it's somewhat amusing, but let's face it, he clearly has a penchant for fancy words, sophomoric irony and cheap, vulgar jokes at the end of each card."
"I suppose you're right. Turn off the TV and I'll service you."
"Now you're talking!" See more
