    I wonder if it was a "prop" car with a small electric motor running instead and gas engine SFX dubbed in.

    Or there could have been a stagehand pushing it while ducked down in the rear.

    This show is filth, filth, I say. But, I LMAO at it.

    I think I even topped the audience laughter a few times.

    "Maybe I'll let him do it to me in the parking spot." Indeed.

    :p

    And something like,

    Amy: "Wow, I feel ten pounds lighter."
    Bernadette: "Are you sure it's not more like fifteen?"

    :eek::D

    That was funny, but it made me wonder about something. When women have that done, do they often have their friends there watching? How else would Bernadette have the knowledge to make that comment?

    No women don't have their friends in there watching. Bernadette would have that knowledge from seeing AFF undressed in the past and knowing how much there was to get rid of.

    The TCF user Bob_Newhart (scroll back in the thread) rather dislikes the Big Bang Theory characters of Amy Farrah Fowler and Bernadette. Since this episode made very heavy use of both characters, this would be the episode he would like the least.

    I was thinking somehow Dr Bob Hartley was involved and he just dreamed the whole big bang universe. Your explanation is clearly so much more reasonable. Thanks....

    Bernadette uses a similar annoying affect in her too squeaky voice like Leonard did the nerd squinting nasally thing in the first 2 seasons. He's toned that down. She needs to also. She is trying too hard to be nerdy.

    Great episode though. I laughed with the laugh track.

    And even though that sounds dirty, it is not.

    In her first couple of appearances, Bernadette spoke in a lower voice, I assume one that matched the actress' natural voice. The higher pitch was adopted in later appearances.

    I think this episode it bothered me more because she had so many lines. I don't dislike the character or her content, just the voice.
