The Big Bang Theory - The Re-Entry Minimization

"Snort it down and keep eating!" I laughed so hard. Love this show.

Watching this episode was like watching my own life in my 20's. My friends each got girlfriends and started hanging out together as couples, leaving me out like Raj. I bet this is a deliberate evolution of the characters' relationships by the producer Chuck Lorre. I wonder if it was based on his real life experience, and which character was he? The arc of these characters will end up with the old gang morphing away from the old gang.

For Big Bang Theory, this was not a typical episode. This was a transitional, coming-of-age episode for the cast.

This.

Plus some of the best lines in this show are not even spoken, they're just reactions.

I loved Penny waiting so long to draw her polish.

I loved Penny wrestling Sheldon, then her and Amy kissing him.

OK the AFF hand is not bugging me as much but it just seems more and more like she has had a stroke and can't move that side of her body.

Oh and for the record the injury she had was a car accident where her thumb was pinned and almost removed, it was basically reattached.

I was wondering if she was naturally right or left handed. Because she's done some pretty fine motor skills things with her left in the last few episodes.

I still wish they'd just written it in. Just say she broke her hand and move on.

I was thinking something to correct a carpal tunnel problem caused by an electric toothbrush.

I don't even notice her hand.

I thought one of the best lines in the show was when she was talking about playing real life operation that their nose doesn't light up, but if you get them fresh enough, you can get their leg to jump.

I thought her comedic timing on delivering that line was awesome. I LOL'd.

I forget about it until I'm reminded here. They are doing a great job of hiding it. I'd you don't know, you probably wouldn't notice.

I had to hit the instant replay and see that one again, just to make sure I saw what I thought I saw. It will be interesting to see if Sheldon refers to that event in a future episode.

Actually, she kissed him on the nose. You can tell because she left lipstick wherever she kissed.


I think the game story line might be the most genius story line ever in the history of TV (okay, maybe not, but definitely in this show.)

I thought his nose was red because he was getting sick like Bernadette. Then when she left lipstick on his cheeks, too, I realized that she had kissed him on the nose first.

That was hysterical.

I wonder if the episode ran short, and they put some of the quick stuff like that in at the last minute to make up the difference.

It was the nose.

I loved all the games and then the little things like instead of bats they used light sabers for the twirl and walk game. And that they mixed it up as to who played against who. Though they never had partners playing against their SO. Oh, and it would have been interesting to see Pictionary as a couple against couple instead of boys against the girls.

I rewatched it for like, the fifth time.

I could seriously watch the two couples play games against each other for several hours.

And every time, I laugh when Howard walks in the door and they're all eating pie and they yell at him. So, so weird and random.

That was fun. It really was a very "big sister" thing to do to him.
