Storyline

Bernadette has just announced that her dissertation has been accepted, meaning that she will soon get her Ph.D. On top of that, she has received a lucrative job offer with a pharmaceutical company. Although Howard states that he is happy for her, the fact that everyone else in their group, who also have their Ph.D.'s, may cause a bit of problem for his ego, especially as they all kid him about being the inferior one in their relationship. Meanwhile, Leonard and Priya doing some Star Trek: The Original Series (1966) sex role playing in the Koothrappali apartment is a bit much for Raj to handle. Tired and needing a place to sleep, he eventually ends up asking Sheldon if he can sleep in Leonard's bed. After Leonard finds out, he suggests this move be a longer term one until Priya gets her own apartment. Having Penny as a next door neighbor may have some benefits for Raj. And Leonard accidentally learns some information about Priya's future. Written by Huggo

Goofs

Amy instructs Sheldon in self-massage and tells him to locate his acromion process. Sheldon reaches up and touches the top of the shoulder immediately next to his neck. However, his hand is in the wrong spot. The acromion process is at the opposite end of his collarbone, just above where the arm connects to the shoulder. See more »
