In the latest video chat Raj has with his father who still pays for Raj's every expense despite Raj having a job, Raj learns that Dr. Koothrappali has, in his own words, "given up" on Raj ever getting married, his previous thought that his efforts to help Raj having gone awry being his fault in some way, while he now believes the failings are all Raj's. Dr. Koothrappali believes the core issues are that Raj is spoiled and overly sensitive. In his anger toward his father for thinking this way, Raj, in his first inclination, decides to get back at him by spending his money even more indiscriminately than he usually does if that is possible (yes it is). In speaking to his friends about the discussion with his father, Raj learns that they too think that he is spoiled. With those close to him feeling the same way, Raj has to decide if he has to make a fundamental change to his life. Meanwhile, Amy and Sheldon are out on one of their date nights.

And then a man stepped from the group of villagers and asked the Prophet, "In these troubled times, what should we be most wary of?"
The Prophet said, "Beware the opportune tragedy. The Reichstag. The Gulf of Tonkin. The Archduke. For this will surely portend the end of your freedom, as well as the Bill Maher show. Now that I think of it, Oliver and Bee are also toast."
Then a young woman approached the Prophet. She looked up at his not-half-bad-looking-for-a-man-his-age face and asked, "Why do men seek to possess and control my body?"
