I'm an old lady and I can do it.
Yes, but that's REAL LIFE, not on a controlled indoors set with actors, grips, directors, cameras, lights, microphones, and a live audience very close nearby. And as I said, if you watch, it doesn't look like anyone is pushing the car.
They did it via magic, now can we move on?
As someone mentioned upthread, what would a BBT thread be without random tangents on minutia?
Amusing, sure, but ironic? I don't think it's either ironic-ironic or Alanis-ironic.
it is made of iron, however.
So obviously they used a big magnet to move the car.
Yes, it is quite funny re-watching the blind date episode where Howard meets her for the first time, her voice is quite a bit lower than it becomes later on.
Apropos of nothing else, it occurs to me that for almost every main character, only the parent with the opposite gender is involved in their lives and/or they get any mentions or appearances - Sheldon, Leondard, Howards - mothers. Penny & Bernadette - fathers (Bernadette's at the wedding, I'm not sure we ever saw her mother ...?). Raj is the exception. It was just something I noticed.
Pretty sure if Mini got product placement in a hit TV show that they could provide a car without an engine. Or BBT could provide the 5 hours ($120/hr) of labor to pull the motor for any competent mechanic/garage with an engine hoist or lift.
Another exception is Amy. She's made plenty of references to her mother (when she first went out with Sheldon she mentioned how she humors her Mom and goes on a date once a year ... or something like that.)
I've never heard any references to her father.
Regarding Bernadette and her mother: The bonding moment between her and Howard on their first date was their overbearing mothers. Bernadette mentioned that her mother lays out her clothes for the next day, despite not actually living with her mother. Other than that first date we haven't seen or heard much, if any, about Bernadette's mother.
Maybe we'll see Howard stand up to her like Bernadette stands up to Howard's. ( well stand up means yell back at her )
I don't understand this talk about pulling a motor from a car. If a prop house has a car with no motor in it, I'm sure BBT would rent that and use it. But if not, I don't see what the big deal is. Whether the car weighs 2,000 lbs. or 3,000 lbs., it's still going to require some kind of fancy setup to push it without the cameras seeing. I don't think they'd go out of their way to dismantle a perfectly good car just to make pushing it a little easier.
On the other hand, they really did send Howard into space, but they faked wires and gravity so other producers wouldn't get jealous.
It wouldn't surprise me if MINI had a shell car already that they lease for little or no cost for productions and show/exhibits.
I'm sure MINI Marketing sees it as a good thing if their car is on the top sitcom in the nation.
That wouldn't surprise me at all. What I would be surprised about is if they removed an engine from a working Mini just to make it easier to push on the set.
What would be absolutely shocking is if the discussion about how they filmed the car scene ended!
Did anyone find it odd that (a) AFF seemingly casually showed Sheldon her hoo-hah and (b) the only reaction from Sheldon was an equally casual "that's a lot of band-aids"?
