What is your favorite Big Bang Theory episode?

I am thinking the episode on buying the Time machine, but love the episode about the ring from the Hobbit movies. And come to think it the grad student that falls for Sheldon was pretty good too.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1256037/
http://bigbangtheory.wikia.com/wiki/...a_Annihilation
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1607974/

Tell why it is your favorite episode, or if you can't decide which is your favorite, then tell your favorite lines and/or scenes.

I like the one where they all came up with a different story from the card from Wolowitz's Dad.

Oh, that was a good one!

I also really liked the one where Howard, uh, fell into the robot arm.

The one where the girls read comic books to see what the guys like about them, then argue over how to pick up Thors Hammer. Love this one. Keep waiting for it to be rerun.

I was kinda sleeping through this one, but have to admit it had a really huge ending. One of the best.

Oh, everyone should say why they love a particular episode.

Isn't this a bit like being asked to pick a favorite child?

There are very few I WOULDN'T pick as a favorite. I still watch them all in reruns.

These are the three that I have kept on all my TiVos. Others I like I will either watch as reruns or have on dvd.

The Bath Gift item Hypothesis was great not just because of the ending but the play that came up to it with Sheldon trying to find a gift for Penny. Then she in one swoop blew all that he had picked out away.

Middle Earth - well Leonard made a great Hobbit, the scene of them all wanting to be the Flash, and as stated earlier, Sheldon's Doppler Effect costume which I loved so much I made and have worn most friday nights at cons I go to. Not great for picking up guys, but works well for making conversation. I had one guy stop me, look at my outfit and just go "vrrooom...vrroooom..." just as Sheldon did. It was great that he got it.

Lots of good choices, but I'd have to go with The Ornithophobia Diffusion.

Get back here you stupid bird, so I can love you!

I don't have favorite episodes as much as I have favorite scenes.

The Nimoy napkin scene was definitely number one, but now it's tied with a scene featuring the character I really didn't like it first: TIAAAARAAAAA!

Putitonme...putitonme...putitonme...putitonme...putitonme... putitonme!


Tiara!

Agree on "The Bath Gift Item Hypothesis".

I will also have to give an honorable mention to the one where Amy gets the tiara. That has to have been one of the funniest moments of any TV show I can remember. It might just be a "best scene" instead of "best episode" but that was awesome.

Mine have to do with scenes as well-

For example, with The Irish Pub Formulation, it's not the episode so much as Sheldon's coming up with the word "un-unravelable" meaning a lie so convoluted that no one could ever figure it out.
We use that all the time in our house!


And The Lobenfield Decay was all about another convoluted cover story with guest star D.J. Qualls as drug addicted cousin Leo, plus Sheldon's retrieving the bag of chicken out of the garbage can in the lobby.

This could go on forever- even in the worst episode there is a gem or two.
And yes, the tiara scene was A+.

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


Seriously though, the Spock DNA episode.

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

Howard's cell rings...

Howard: Looks like I'm going to have sex tonight.
Penny: ????
Leonard: It's complicated.
Penny: His right hand is calling him?

Classic!

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.

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