When Penny asks the guys to her party, which will include dancing, they seriously think about not attending as they aren't "dance" people. But when they learn it's a costume party (the fact of it being Halloween irrelevant), they change their collective minds and decide to go. Leonard wants this party to be an opportunity for Penny to see him as someone in her social circle. But Leonard's goals for the evening change when Kurt, Penny's ex-boyfriend, shows up, he who seems to be an invited guest and who Penny seems happy to see. Leonard, still smarting from his first and only other previous encounter with Kurt, tries to be Penny's protector while protecting himself from a potentially painful beating from Kurt.
Did You Know?
As Penny is from Middle America (Nebraska) she would, indeed, expect people to start showing up for her party at 7:00. See more
OK, if no-one else will say it, I will. We really suck at paint-ball.
That was absolutely humiliating.
Oh, come on, some battles you win, some battles you lose.
Yes, but you don't have to lose to Kyle Bernstein's Bar-Mitzvah party.
I think we have to acknowledge those were some fairly savage preadolescent Jews.

CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #191 I'm writing this vanity card at six o'clock in the morning on October 18, 2007. It's my birthday. I am fifty-five years old. I have long ago become invisible to young women. They actually do not see me. But I am not writing this to complain. I am at peace with my circumstances. The blessing of fifty-five is a libido in decline. The curse of it is that major pharmaceutical companies are successfully exploiting my insecurities. Suddenly that surreal commercial of a silver-haired guy sitting naked in an outdoor bath tub and holding hands with a naked, slightly younger woman in an adjacent tub makes perfect sense (if I had produced that spot I would've have given him a small plasma screen TV so he could watch ESPN during his hang time). I'm also mesmerized by the commercial featuring middle-aged men gleefully celebrating their ability to drink water and drive long distances (I particularly enjoy that the slightly younger women in that one are turned on knowing that their geezers don't have to urinate frequently). Anyway, it's my birthday today. If you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go suck on my bronchitis inhaler so that later today I can blow out the candles without hacking up a lung. See more
