    Oh dear.

    Penny: Let's get married?
    Leonard: What?
    Penny: Leonard Hofstadter, will you marry me?
    Leonard: Um....
    Penny: Did you seriously just say "Umm..."? ​

    Also, I'm going to have to re-watch the ending where Sheldon was so supportive. I kept expecting it to be some kind of dream.:confused:

    He was being supportive to deliver the "Kick Me" sign :D

    Leonard should have said "Yes" and then dealt with it later, he did possibly the worst thing, which was hesitate.

    That's right. I remember now. Even with the "bazinga" of the "Kick me" sign he was doing a much better than usual job of imitating someone who actually cared.

    Ugh. Please don't make a huge deal of the 'Hesitation'. I wouldn't have said 'yes' to my depressed, incredibly drunken girlfriend either.

    Sheldon exploring humor was dumb. His catch phrase, bazinga, is related to his humor, no?

    Kind of a downer episode really.

    Did they really need to rip a scene right out of When Harry Met Sally?

    Did anybody catch the vanity card on this one? I thought it was very sweet.

    Eh, he probably cut the scene just so he could write the vanity card. :D

    But yes, that was a good one.

    I realized that, but I still think it was rather a blunt, clumsy homage.

    Yeah, this was a surprisingly down episode.

    I agree with Billy above. In the past, Penny made a big deal out of Leonard proposing at an inappropriate time. Now, she's making a big deal when he doesn't accept HER inappropriately timed proposal? Seriously, I wouldn't have immediately accepted a proposal from an inebriated girlfriend in a bad emotional state either.

    The Sheldon humor plot was just annoying... although for those in the audience still arguing that he has Asperger's, his overly literal nature here was good evidence of that. (I know, the show producers say he doesn't, but there are those who choose to ignore that.)

    Well, this show has convinced me it's time to delete it from season passes.

    The only good part was the blond laughing ... and, like you say, it was stolen.

    It looks like they fired all of their writers.

    Not funny. Irritating. Offensive. Inappropriate laugh track. Jeeze.

    I'm all for drunk proposals... at least while in Vegas where you can take proper advantage of them. ;)

    :up: I was about to post something equivalent.

    While it was a bit of a down episode, I liked it, and I respected that they did some decent work in it.
    I'm also 100% with Leonard that "umm" was the right direction of response to a drunken proposal but he'd have been wiser to say "this isn't the time, let's talk when you're sober"

    I think they cut her part because she takes such a terrible 'selfy'.
    http://v.cdn.vine.co/r/thumbs/8E50C...pg?versionId=USZG04EePfv.kWxOKQcDisayg8CRPtCy

    I think this episode had some good ideas for Penny to rethink her acting career and Sheldons' continuing attempts to understand normal humans, but they didn't really follow through. They did have some great lines though.

    I am not really into Bernadette character, but did enjoy her saying over and over 'or maybe just stop talking' while in the car. And 'or just keep dating the possum' was even funnier.

    What I can't understand is why NCIS is one of the top rated shows. That show is worthless.

    Probably Penny won't remember anything about asking him to marry her so he will be off the hook.

    I'm definitely not going to delete it from my season pass. I loved the last new one.

    I can't tell you how many women I have thrown out of bed for that exact reason. I even make them pay their own cab fare home too.

    Is any deleted scene with a girl named Lexie good enough or does it have to be a BBT scene?

    Nitpicking a bit, don't really think she would only find out she was cut from the show when watching it. They would have told her agent weeks earlier.
