Storyline

Leonard is still pining over Penny, but comes to the realization that she is out of his league when he sees her with her handsome latest date. Moving on, Leonard decides to ask out his colleague, Dr. Leslie Winkle, instead, who wants to treat this event like a sped up science experiment, with the results being more important than the process. With Leonard still thinking about Penny, Sheldon clarifies to Leonard that Penny has not rejected him since Leonard has never asked her out. But Penny's interpretation of Leonard's question makes Leonard reevaluate how to approach their "first date". Written by Huggo

Crazy Credits

In the opening scroll of the time line when it gets to 91,000 there is a mistake the dates read 93,000BC 92,000BC 91,0009C 90,000BC for some reason 91,000 is a 9c not a BC. See more »

Clueless to the Nth Degree
28 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

These guys are so endearing. Leonard is a putz and in a real world would definitely out of Penny's league. We are introduced to Leslie Winkle who is about as harsh as one can be. Leonard feels he needs female companionship but he doesn't need this. When he finally gets Penny to go out with him, she doesn't realize it's a date. Sheldon comes to the rescue--sort of. Leonard's self deprecation is sort of endearing.
