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.

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.
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"?

I'm sure she had panties on. I'm not surprised Sheldon was clinical about it. He's basically immune to any sort of physical attraction.

I think that's the point, much to AFF's dismay!

Well, he did say, "You must be high on paint fumes," before he mentioned anything about the band aids.

That would be a sub-optimal choice when trying to show off your waxing.

A bikini wax doesn't necessarily mean a full Brazilian.

This one of the cases where searching Wikipedia for "bikini waxing" is NSFW

This. As the name implies, a bikini wax is so a bikini doesn't show any hairs. It depends on the size of the bikini.

But the point was that she was showing Sheldon. Unless he's seen it before (unlikely), then simply showing the lack of hairs sticking out the side of her underwear isn't going to mean anything to him.

You realize that you are talking about someone who had no reaction when he saw Penny naked.

I think you missed the point of my post. People were saying that a bikini wax doesn't mean the whole area was waxed, and therefore AFF wasn't necessarily showing the full area to Sheldon. I was pointing out that unless Sheldon had previously seen her in her underwear pre-waxing, showing him what she now looks like in her underwear post-waxing won't mean anything to him.

I thing JYoung's point (with which) I agree is that a woman's bikini area doesn't meant anything to Sheldon at all.

I don't think anyone would dispute that. That's not the point.

Sure it is, what type of wax she actually got is totally irrelevant to the joke as is exactly what she showed him.
Because no matter what it was, bikini wax, full Brazilian, unshaved, her underwear, his reaction would have been the same.

Of course his reaction would have been the same but you're still missing the point.

I'll spell it out for you:

1. Someone asked if AFF showed Sheldon her hoohah.
2. Someone replied that a bikini wax doesn't remove all the hair, just what would show when wearing a bikini. The implication was that she didn't necessarily show Sheldon her hoohah since the wax job could be seen even with her underwear on.
3. I pointed out that unless Sheldon had previously seen her in her underwear, with hairs hanging out, which is unlikely, he wouldn't be able to recognize the result of the wax job if she showed him with her underwear still on. The implication was that she did, in fact, show Sheldon her hoohah.

There was never any question about who she showed or what his reaction would be.

I don't get how there was any question as to what she was showing him.

"What do you think?" with that breathy, husky, come hither voice? That makes no sense unless she's showing him the roast beef.
