    Pretty funny all around. Thought it was particularly hilarious that Sheldon provides a "Roommate ID" and a pin to wear.

    Leonard's Star Trek sexcapades would drive me out as well.

    And I thought they had beat Raj's "can't-talk-to-women" thing to death, but I actually laughed when even after having sex with Penny, he STILL couldn't talk to her.

    A bit of a let down for a season ender, but still had some funny spots.

    We don't know for sure that any sex actually occurred. They might get out of it that way next season - Raj lets Penny think it really happened for a while, then when he see that it will keep Penny and Leonard apart he confesses that they both just slept.

    Both drunk, and without any clothes on? Suuuuuuure.

    I'm anxiously awaiting for the Penny-Raj love child.

    This is quickly turning into another Friends season:

    Leonard and Penny: Ross and Rachel
    Leonard and Pria: Ross and Emily
    Penny and Raj: Rachel and Joey
    Howard and Bernadette: Monica and Chandler
    Sheldon and AFF: Phoebe and Mike (disclaimer: I never watched Friends after the first couple of Seasons,I had to look this one up on Wikipedia)

    Oh God....it's the
    Lost spoiler
    did-Sun-and-the-English-teacher-do-it debate again. NOOOOO!!!! :D

    I was surprised and a little annoyed that they had Penny sleep with Raj. Just didn't seem to fit and felt like a little much.

    I liked it. Raj is really funny. Penny hardly ever gets to hear/see him in his natural state.. and she did that night. He was charming, funny (chicks dig the funny), and he's a good looking guy (and I mean that in a complete hetero way, pervs).

    Is there anyone here who hasn't had something strange like that happen to them, or someone close to them, in real life? Sex happens... get over it.

    I agree, I am not sure how much I appreciate that. I know the purpose is that now that Leonard is on the outs with Pria this becomes another wedge to keep him and Penny apart, but while the Penny character has never been the queen of virtue this moves her a little too much in the other direction. Pining for Leonard one moment and then drunkingly sleeping with one of his best friends the next? Really? And this is a character we are supposed to like and be rooting for?

    We'll see next season. If I'm right, I'll quote my theory and your response and you can bow down to my superior prediction skills. If you're right, I won't say anything and hope you forgot all about this. :)

    Wikipedia...suuuuuuure. ;)

    Leonard: "Penny, I can't believe you slept with Raj."
    Penny: "WE WERE ON A BREAK!!!"

    :D

    Exactly my thoughts. I don't really love that they did that. I get that sitcoms will always try to keep the 2 main characters apart for dramatic reasons, but I don't really like Penny (or Raj, for that matter) for doing this.

    I know it's just a comedy but it just didn't sit right with me.

    Overall it was a funny episode though. Looking forward to it again next year.

    I was surprised to find that I was disappointed that there wasn't more Amy Farrah Fowler.

    Wow. Raj and Penny? I haven't watched the episode, and now I'm not sure I want to.

    Don't worry; you don't actually see it happen. ;)

    I loved this episode. Had a little of everything. The guys were a little hard on Howard, eh? His mother still cracks me up every time she yells something.

    When first introduced, she bugged the hell out of me. Within a couple episodes, I hated her. No one could be that robotic.

    Now she's one of my faves. :rolleyes:

    The women create a dynamic that was sorely missing on this show. Looking forward to next year.

    I cracked up at Penny's delivery of the line, "You STILL can't talk to me, huh?"

    I can't wait for the episode where Sheldon and AFF wake up naked in bed.

    I don't get this.
    If you didn't see the episode, why would you read the thread?
