The Big Bang Theory [03/14/13] - "The Closet Reconfiguration"

Could I please get Sheldon to organize my closet?

Bernadette: Sheldon, I've been cooking all day.
Sheldon: Well ... now don't you feel silly.
Bernadette [to Howard]: Show him the closet

I thought that was a very creative and sweet solution to the conundrum.

But why would Howard's dad have a map to Pirate Treasure?

I thought it was the worst of the season, other than a few good lines here and there.

Probably because it's one of those "special feelings" episode that occurs once or twice a season.

I thought the two dinner parties were a great opportunity to bring in Lucy in situations where Raj could actually talk to her. They could have done it easily without detracting from the main plot.

The second dinner party turned into something very personal with Howard. Lucy would have been out of place in that story.

Kind of hard to do since they said she suffers from severe social anxiety. No way she would attend a dinner party like that.

I liked it a lot-and I'm usually blah on emotional episodes.

I even got choked up and that never happens.

I do wish they'd turned down the Sheldon a smidge.

Do you guys just argue for the sake of arguing? WTF?

1. She already said she's trying to do one thing a day that scares her.
2. She already went to the comic books store valentines day party *by herself*
3. She introduced herself to Raj *by herself* without any other prompting.

So yea, she might have a social anxiety, but it's clear that she can overcome it and is trying to take steps to do so. So I think attending a dinner party with Raj and a known group of people, in a safe environment isn't that much of a stretch for a fricking SITCOM. Sheesh.

And what about Penny throwing a party at her place, just so she could drink herself silly without having to worry about getting back home? Shameless!

BTW, I'd like to think that all the things they claimed in the letter were actually in the letter. Well, other than the map.

It was sweet (Sheldon not withstanding) but if Howard had remembered something Sheldon said earlier it would have eliminated most of their stories.

When first showing the letter to Howard, Sheldon mentioned he wasn't sure if it should be filed under correspondence or memorabilia. Of the stories only the newborn picture or the birthday card (or I guess the treasure map; had it be real) would possibly be considered memorabilia by Sheldon.

Although there is the possibility that more than one of the stories could be true. None the less I'm sure Bernadette got to tell Howard the real contents.

Discussion, yes. But picking an argument just to argue? No.

But wouldn't the other stories classify as "correspondence"? So they all still could be true (except for the pirate).

He couldn't file it without knowing the contents. He had to open it to determine where it went. Once he did, he knew where to file it (although we are not told where that was).

I thought he said he had to open the envelope and read the letter to figure out how to categorize it. In other words, it was still sealed when he found it. That doesn't rule anything out. When it was a sealed envelope, its contents easily could have been memorabilia or correspondence, and without opening the envelope, he couldn't tell which.

ETA: Or, what Eddy said.

Has she been introduced to the group? I don't recall that happening, nor has there really been much time for her to consider the group a safe environment.

Sheldon could not determine the category of the letter. So I thought Sheldon was asking Howard to make the final determination (giving him those two options). Sheldon was just saying he didn't know how to classify it, not that he had chosen one or the other. So all options are still possible.

Pretty good episode.

Penny has improved as a character. She has learned to take a shower and do her hair while drunk.

Not everything that happens in the BBT Universe is shown on the program so your point is irrelevant. Whatever the case may be, BBT not being the REAL WORLD, all I'm saying is that if she is to become a recurring character, it would have been entirely plausible to include her in the dinner party.

No, if he'd known how to file it he wouldn't have asked Howard about it; he'd have just filed it away. (Like everything else in the closet)

My recollection is that his phrasing was pretty much "I wasn't sure how to file this because it could be catagorized as either correspondance or memorabilia". I went back once last night and listened again; I was left with the impression that after reading it Sheldon had narrowed it to one of those two categories but needed Howards input to be sure which it better fit into.

But since Sheldon saw nothing wrong with opening it to determine the contents I can't see that he'd set that one thing aside to explain he'd had to open it. If he could have been sure of the catigorization he'd have filed it and never said a word because, in his mind, that's just what you do when you're organizing.

So because two others offered responses that disagreed with your post, that means that they're "arguing for the sake of arguing"? WTF?

See post 24

It's tiring that everytime someone posts something just as I did "it would have been nice if..." that there are a cadre of people who will waste no time taking the opposing side JUST TO ARGUE IT. I didn't post that in order to start an argument, but apparently many people see any and every post on this forum (and others) as a reason JUST TO START ARGUING ABOUT SOMETHING -- ANYTHING. They don't have an opinion before hand, but god dammit, they just take the opposing view for the F of it. I already posted three SIMPLE reasons why their arguments are flawed.. so I can only conclude that people jump on other peoples' posts just for the LULZ. It's childish troll behavior.
