Because of something that happens associated with the building that they are not too happy about, Leonard, Penny and Amy not only learn that Sheldon is the President of the building's Tenants' Association, but that he *is* the Tenants' Association. As such, he has had the power to implement whatever rule and regulation for the building he feels suits his needs, and issue the associated fine or other penalty to the offending tenant behind the cover of the Association. Having been at the receiving end of of those penalties, Leonard and Penny not only want to challenge Sheldon's presidency but put Leonard in the position instead. Finding that support in the building to topple Sheldon may be more difficult than they imagine.

DJI Phantom 4 series drones (which is the model used) do not have microphones built-in to the camera. While it is possible to use the microphone on the controlling tablet, or phone in conjunction with the app to record audio overlaid onto the corresponding video cache, it is not recorded onto the actual video card. The woman who owned the drone would not be able to hear any audio recorded unless she had the phone Wolowitz used when flying the drone. See more »


Bernadette Rostenkowski: Aren't you worried there's some kid out there missing his drone?
Raj Koothrappali: Uh, oh, please, Bernadette, this is not a children's toy, okay? This thing's got a HD camera on it.
Bernadette Rostenkowski: Okay, then aren't you worried there's some rich peeping Tom out there missing his drone?
Howard Wolowitz: We asked around, and no one claimed it. I think we've done all we can do.
Bernadette Rostenkowski: Did you check the video card? Maybe you can see where it started off from.
Howard Wolowitz: [sarcastic] What a great idea, honey.

One of the best in the season ; nevertheless disappointing.
12 April 2018 | by CobertNeedeSee all my reviews

The Big Bang Theory suffers from too much drama at where it shouldn't be. The episode brings too much 'Sheldon' to the front, but succeeds partially at that. It was certainly funny in some parts ; a phenomenon that i haven't witnessed all season.

With some dodgy story-lines, a pretty interesting outcome, this episode stands out from the rest as being very 'nostalgic', you could say.

But still, the ending and everything was a classic Tbbt.
