    The rest of the episode was fine but I have a real problem with the Penny/Hypnotism conversation coming out of Sheldon's mouth. That was definitely a Howard line. It was just creepy (and not in a funny way) coming from Sheldon.

    I agree. Based on the rules of his character that they have set up, he would not be able to make that connection with a chicken pecking at feed.

    I didn't think it was creepy, what was extremely odd about that was:

    Sheldon believes in hypnotism?

    That seems completely out of character. I would have expected him to call it hokum.

    My guess about the 43 on the board was that Sheldon was doing an experiment on how long it would take them to snoop on him if he were to disappear everyday for 20 minutes. The wormhole hoax was hilarious though!

    Wow, I could not disagree more about that Sheldon line. It was hysterical. The little head bob was so subdued, my wife did not notice it at first. I had tears in my eyes, so I had trouble locating the remote... I backed up the scene and showed her, and SHE was laughing as loudly as I.

    I think having Howard say the line might have telegraphed the joke a bit too much. As it was, the line was funny, but that head bob just had me laughing off and on the rest of the episode.

    Apparently they had a flash mob break out during the filming of this episode...

    Pretty awesome, cool to see them having so much fun. There is another longer version that someone filmed with a camera phone on youtube too, this one is edited by CBS.

    That is great. I have always heard their cast is one of the ones that go out of their way to make it enjoyable for the audience at tapings since there is so much waiting.

    And hopefully the above video puts to rest any remaining people who doubt that they use a live audience for the show laughter.

    The longer version I watched had a brief cameo from Johnny Galecki doing some break dancing.

    Yeah, she was missing from this episode. No Bernadette either. It was like a throw-back episode to the early seasons.

    Funny you mention this. The one scene last night that to me cemented that was the one when the two guys were face to face listening at the door. It was clear that they were waiting for the laughter to die down before they said their lines.

    Did any Bones or Alphas fans noticed whose Penny's friend was?
