    Can't believe there is no thread for this yet. Maybe I was just in the mood for it last night but I can't think of when I last laughed that much at a single episode. Nice to know that Amy Farrah Fowler, Howard and Bernadette can be featured and the show is still hilarious.

    Great Episode right down to a little Sheldon jealously at the end with the karate chop.

    The ending with Bernadette and Howard's mother had me rolling on the floor!!!

    While I didn't like the lead up, I did love the payoff with Bernadette and her yelling.

    Agreed.
    And the karate chop was a classic "TOS" style "Space Karate" chop.

    Bernadette was probably the funniest part of this ep.

    BTW, and it is not a plot spoiler, per se, but Wil Wheaton tweeted that on the Oct 13 episode, he will be on again, along with Brent Spiner. I can't wait for that!

    That's kind of the thing with any scene regarding Howard and his mom, I laugh but there is certain uncomfortableness to their scenes. Like when he said he goes into the bathroom all the time when she is on the pot. I chuckled and cringed at the same time.

    I hope this won't be seen as threadcrapping, but this cartoon (from Our Valued Customers) really cracked me up.

    I just find it hard to believe that he doesn't know that most/all/some of that is inappropriate and that his GF wouldn't approve. The joke went on for a long time but it did pay off, eventually

    He's a mommas boy, he doesn't know any different, it's all normal to him. Him not realizing that it is inappropriate is part of the joke, IMO.

    Bernadette talking like Howard's mom (and she's done it before) is one of the funniest things on that show.

    Amy Farrah Fowler is growing on me. "when you're done copping a feel, that goes on my wrist"

    Yeah, what happens when Howard's mom and Bernadette team up against him? Could be a real "the ex and the missus" scenario. ;)

    A much better episode than the first two this season. Loved watching the Amy and Leonard relationship. This was the first time they've done that. It brought new life to the show, however briefly.

    I wish Bernadette would quite wearing those sweaters.

    I loved it when Howard yelled to his mother that it wasn't gonna happen that night and she should give up.

    I've often wondered if she is the voice of the mother.

    But if she filled in, I probably couldn't tell the difference...

    Are you sure you didn't misspell your username? Was it supposed to be "spammy ears"?

    That's been debated before in these fora...but, as Tony said, she is not.
