    I really liked the ones before Penny's crippling drinking problem arose best. :D

    Seriously though, the Spock DNA episode.

    The one where Penny first plays video games with the gang and keeps killing Sheldon.

    Oh, I forgot about the bath gift one. That was classic. See? You can't just pick one. :)

    Loved the tiara AFF one too.

    From Season 3 Episode 10 "The Gorilla Experiment" it's the episode where Penny explains Sheldon's seat, cracks me up every time

    Penny: ????
    Leonard: It's complicated.

    I love Amys' comment
    "Guess you gotta have hollow bones to get some sugar around here."

    The use of the word 'sugar' is great.

    I do agree that every show has at least one comment or scene that is great.

    I still love to watch it even if Penny isn't as pretty. I was asking my sig' other 'what has happened to Penny?'. She said she is older, but I countered that "most women that take care of themselves peak at their beauty in the thirties or forties." She gave me a look like Amy gives Sheldon too many times, so I think I am trouble. I do always say that she is twice as beautiful as any of the girls, but I don't know if that comment saved me or not.

    That was probably one of the sweetest moments from the series.

    I really enjoyed the episode with Bob Newhart. Not my absolute favorite, but just a really classic performance by Newhart.

    Same here. I don't remember the name of the episode, but in this scene Leonard asks Sheldon if he has considered telling Amy how he feels and Sheldon replied, Leonard, I'm a physicist not a hippie!

    As an introverted engineer, I found that line hilarious! :D

    Favorite episode? Probably the Bob Newhart episode.

    Favorite scene? Somehow the boys lost something or sold something on e-bay (I forget the details) and the guy won't give it back. The guys want to give up, they're afraid to confront the guy, but Penny drives them to his house, the guys are cowering behind her at the doorway begging her not to knock, she eventually winds up kicking the guy you-know-where and they take back their item, and Sheldon says 'Yay, we did it!'

    That was the episode where a guy stole Sheldon's WOW identity and all his money and weapons, etc.

    I don't know the episode name, but I really like the one where they prank Sheldon on the card trick.

    Bath Gift is indeed excellent and a favorite because it's also very sweet at the end.

    My favorite episode is the one with bouncing lasers off the moon, with Zack.
    "That's a guy for Penny" --> "I was wrong. Penny can do better" --> "He must be very skilled at coitus".

    Also, Sheldon winning a prize and has to give an acceptance speech but is faced. "Just the Asians!" Classic!

    And anything with Leonard's mother.

    The ending of the Bath Gift Hypothesis makes me kind of get watery eyed. That is the hallmark of a good episode to me - actually caring about the people involved.

    Mayim's reaction to the tiara in the Shiny Trinket Maneuver makes me laugh out loud each time. That's one episode of TV where I watched it and immediately thought "That person deserves an Emmy."

    Bath Gift Hypothesis gets my vote too... its funny how many gravitate towards that one! When I saw this thread that came immediately to mind but I didn't think there would be anything close to a consensus with so many great ones!

    In terms of scenes? There are two end scenes I play over and over when they are on - I just love the scene where Leonard negotiates with Brent Spiner to come to his birthday party and sell him the Mr. Data dolls.... and the one where Raj and Howard keep doing the card trick to Sheldon.
