Howard passes along the fact that Colonel Williams wants to meet to discuss the guidance system to Leonard and Sheldon, the three and Raj who discuss amongst themselves their continued concern about the system being used for military purposes. They do agree at least to meet with him, but believe they have to get some legal advice beforehand. What happens in that meeting may depend largely on the wild card in the equation, namely something named "Sheldon". Meanwhile, Bernadette discovers that her coworkers know that she is pregnant, something that she hasn't yet told anyone at work and something she didn't want her coworkers yet to know, fearing that her superiors will use the information against her in assigning a coveted research project to another scientist. Bernadette wants to get back at whoever blabbed, she who will go to extreme lengths for revenge.

I've thought long and hard about this vanity card. What I'm about to say is going to upset quite a few people. Some of them are my friends. Or perhaps, after reading this, my former friends. But I can't let that stop me from speaking my mind. It's time to say out loud what I know in my heart to be true. Vegetarians and vegans are mobility bigots. They believe that if a life form doesn't move, it's fair game to be killed and eaten. They hold a deep-seated prejudice against plants, or, as plants prefer to be called, "We Who Stand Still." This hateful philosophy is predicated on the idea that movement equals consciousness, or, if you will, a certain level of sacredness. To put it simply, if it walks, flies, or swims, or comes from something that does, it should not be ingested. If it doesn't, yum-yum. Of course when you ask vegetarians and vegans, they say no, they're only opposed to eating flesh. But what could be more fleshy than a mushroom? Or avocado? Or eggplant? The ugly truth is they are cowards who murder and devour anything that can't run away. These people, who act so high and mighty, so spiritually elevated, have somehow constructed a style of cuisine that would justify them eating my Uncle Murray, a man known for sitting still for hours at a time, staring at a TV that is turned off. So the next time you order a salad consider this: Prince told us that doves cry. But what if kale does too? See more
