Storyline

Bert in the Geology Department has just won a prestigious MacArthur grant, and with it $500,000 which need not be used for his research. Everyone around him is happy for him, everyone that is except for Sheldon, who can't feel anything but jealousy. Subsequent events around the grant award just makes Sheldon more and more jealous. One by one, his friends try to get him out of his funk about this issue. But it may be Bert himself who has the answer to Sheldon's problem. Meanwhile, Howard has found a remote control miniature toy he once made of Stephen Hawking. While Howard thinks the toy is hilarious, Bernadette believes it is in poor taste. Because of Bernadette's belief, Howard tries to get validation as to his thought about the issue. He may need it if he has any hope of taking Bernadette up on her dare: to show the toy to Hawking himself. Written by Huggo

Goofs

Upon seeing an unattended bicycle in the hallway belonging to someone in the apartment building, Sheldon says that he'd steal it if he knew how to ride it. But in "The Creepy Candy Coating Corollary", he makes mention of a bully from his childhood who put dog poop on the handlebars of his bicycle; for a know-it-all like Sheldon, it seems unlikely that he'd own a bike if he didn't know how to ride it.

I'm confused. Are we not supposed to pay taxes anymore? Or is that option just available for smart people? Also, where did we wind up on crotch grabbing? Just for famous people or is it something anyone can do now? See more »
