Big Bang Theory - OAD 1/12/12 (Spoilers)

Ok, I'll admit it.

I've complained about AFF since the episode she first showed up. But her reaction to the tiara really cracked me up. Backed up and replayed it 3 times.

Biggest laugh I've had watching BBT in a long while.

I liked Penny's zinger in the jewelry store, after Sheldon made the comment about the humidifier at Sears.

Using a tiara as the gift was an inspired choice by the writers, so kudos.
They know AFF quite well.
And I love her.

The tiara scenes was awesome, and Sheldon's reaction to the big hug and kiss was equally awesome. He SERIOUSLY doesn't know how to handle the GF thang!

Funny because after this, I watch an old episode on TBS in which Sheldon was trying to help Leonard with HIS GF and he seemed to have a better handle on the GF situation then than he does now.

So is Bernadette and Howard done? Sad, because I kind of liked them together. I thought she was a good buffer between Howard and his mother.

No, they decided that Howard would stay home with the kids and she would keep on working.

Or did they ...?

Howard had a weird expression on his face, so I'm sure it can be brought up as a storyline in the future.

Yeah. Sadly, at this point, there's no way this wedding is happening.

Melissa Rauch has been all over the place promoting the show. She isn't going away anytime soon. They'll work it out, her character and her interaction with Howard and his mother is great. Along with AFF, it rejuvenated the show.

What do you mean, "sadly"? Do you seriously believe this show could survive without Raj having a chance with Howard?

The tiara moment was right up there with the Leonard Nimoy napkin moment.

I agree the scene with the tiara was priceless although I started laughing with "We both know that's your koala face!"

You do have to give Bialak credit for that scene.

I thought that Howard's magic was pretty good though.
Although he should probably check for bunnies.

I thought his mom said she was short and stacked all over, meaning she had a curvy body.

Great ep. Loved the tiara scene. Hope Melissa isn't going anywhere. I really like her. But I don't see how they are going to resolve the kid issue (although I think they WILL), as Howard is not going to want to be a Mr Mom.

Howard's mother - OMG, while I love all the characters, the show wouldn't be the same without her. I always love the 'character you never see' thing anyway, but that voice and the things she says are great!

[nerd]Continuity problem: in an earlier episode, Bernadette talked about knowing how to deal with kids/Sheldon because her mother ran an illegal day care out of their house. She obviously was good with kids at that moment. [/nerd]

FWIW, the big bang wiki says it is because of the illegal daycare that she hates kids.

He's implying the jewelry store is gets lots of its business from boyfriends buying gifts the same way Sheldon was doing.

I believe USC stands for the university of some kind, it makes sense then. Thank you, vman41.

My favorite bits were:
The forgotten dove left inside the magic chafing dish.
When Howard's mother said Bernadette was stacked like her, Howard's reply "But she doesn't step on hers"

When I was a kid doing magic shows I had that exact same trick. It is pretty cool to see it done.

I also had the Dove pan, and a bunch of other tricks. Lots of fun seeing that episode.

I like Bernadette. I think she is a cutie.

I do think the expression was "stacked all over" followed shortly in Howard's Mom's description with, "...just like me."

I liked Howard's retort, "She's not stacked just like you Mom. There's no danger that she'll step on hers!"

A good episode. The "tiara moment" knocked the episode out of the park.
