    Laurie Metcalf (Mrs. Cooper) didn't look like herself on this episode. I kept trying to figure out what was different but never could.


    Sheldon: Then why are you doing it?
    Mrs. Cooper: Because I'm not perfect, Shelly. And that man's booty is.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Sheldon: I love my mother. Even if she fornicates like a demonic weasel.​

    For me, not their best effort. Cringeworthy at times.

    I agree. A mildly amusing, run of the mill episode. Not many memorable moments IMO.

    And we never got to find out why Penny killed Stuart.

    I don't see how this show is going to last another three years. It's already getting kind of boring. We need some new blood and get rid of the deadwood (Raj, Howard, Amy).

    AFF just seemed mean in this episode. It's like she would pretend to care about something and then just decide that she didn't want to try and was just mean instead.

    Penny: "I need another clue." Ha ha...drunk Penny is funny.

    It can go another three years because people will continue to watch it for another three years. It could lose half of its audience and still be one of the most watched shows on television. The actors playing Raj, Howard and Amy will all get nice raises and won't be going anywhere. The shows probably won't be as good but people will still watch. That's kinda the way it works in television.

    I thought the converstation between Sheldon and his mother was one of the funniest things they've done in a long time.

    That said When did Sheldon willingly start drinking? That seemed way out of place for me. Even of it was nothing more than a sip.

    Well, it wasn't normal circumstances, was it?

    Remember when Sheldon got drunk in the episode "The Thanksgiving Decoupling" and then threw up on "a bunch of clowns" in the bathroom? He was drinking beer voluntarily then. Bernadette's dad wanted him to have a beer while they watched football and Sheldon easily agreed. You know Sheldon is not going to do something Sheldon doesn't want to do.

    I guess his drinking is a sign of his his growth and socialization.

    Wait, wait, wait, what kind of BBT thread is this?! No comments about skanky Penny looked? No comments how about how drunk she was? I am disappointed in the community :D

    That was a perfect Sheldon line. I wish they hadn't used it in all of the promos for the episode... by the time I heard it "in context" it wasn't funny anymore.

    I bet Sheldon and AFF will do the deed sometime next season. They can't possibly be virgins for 3 more years.

    Well, The Simpsons are still on. I still even watch them but not with any great passion anymore. Mostly out of loyalty.

    I liked a few parts of the episode but agree with was sort of ho hum.

    I liked that Howard and Sheldon went off on their own together. I liked that Raj did the game up but then didn't like HOW he did it. Boring.

    The argument with Leonard and Penney about what happens when they are "grown up" - professor and actresses was just stupid. And I don't feel like it really got resolved.

    I did like the ending very much.

    I disagree about it being stupid. Even though nothing got resolved it still is an important and necessary conversation to have in a relationship that's going places.

    That being said, I don't like Penny's character anymore. She's practically become the cliche that's joked about in these threads every week. Drunk, bitter and generally not a nice person.

    Okay, well, I think what I meant was the how of it. Would you really have that long a fight/discussion in front of friends? I could see if it came up saying something and then saying we have to talk about it later. I don't know, but maybe that's just me.

    Yes, it is an important discussion but it also isn't one that usually comes up UNTIL something trips it - like her getting an important part or him getting an offer to work somewhere else. And yes, the smart thing would be to discuss it first but how many people really do that. You can say "what if" but without knowing the instance, you don't know how you would react.

    I think they could have done it better by maybe having Leonard recieve an offer or Penny hearing about something going on in NYC and auditioning/getting the part.

    And Stuart said they were a great couple my heart melted. I have a fangirl crush on Stuart.

    Favorite line -
    "I can see up your skirt"
