    But it was working when they moved in, it was an experiment gone wrong that incapacitated the elevator.

    That was the first thing I noticed. The other thing they got wrong was the roof is not directly above the guys' apartment. There was an episode in which the previously quiet tenant above them moved out and the noisy girl moved in (driving Sheldon crazy with her footsteps).

    Umm, no. Bizarro Superman (from Bizarro world) is completely separate and distinct from Mister Mxyzptlk who is from the 5th dimension. They have no connection to each other aside from plaguing Superman.

    They got a bunch of major things wrong.. like they added a wall in the boys apartment between the door and the alcove window area, and Penny's kitchen is not directly behind her couch, it's directly to the left of her couch... nice try though. Oh, and they definitely live on the 4th floor, so the outside shots of the building should have two more floors. :)

    I read in the comments that the SIMS only allows 5 floors, and the turning stairway takes two floors, so with the basement, all he could get was 2 floors in the sim.

    Well if you do notice the tape on the elevator does change from floor to floor.

    It is definitely all in his mind because there's no such thing as a physical ailment that would require someone to drink alcohol before they could talk to women ;)

    Ross was only truly annoying when he wasn't with rachael (even on a break). He was least annoying at the end. With rachael.

    Wouldn't that put them on the ground floor?

    No, that's a different set than the one they use for 2, 3, and 4...

    At the end of the show? They were only together at the end for, like, two episodes, at most.

    Two episodes? I thought it was more like two minutes.

    The finale was one hour. In the episode prior to the finale, Ross and Rachel sleep together, and Ross thinks they're back together, but in reality it was a goodbye bang before Rachel leaves for her new job in Paris.

    It isn't until almost the end of the one hour episode where they both end up together for realz.

    And then the camera slowly leaves the apartment and goes down the stairs to reveal an elevator repairman showing up.

    They are, and they do. :D Although to nitpick, you don't need sheep to build a road, just wood and brick. But for the sake of the joke...

    And yes, when trading, the line "I've got wood for sheep" never fails to elicit giggles. :p

    There's never been a doubt in my mind that the elevator would be repaired in the final episode. :)

    I'll be very disappointed if they don't write that in.

    There are even T-shirts about it. And the Catan facebook page posted after the show that the "classic wood for sheep joke was made".

    While it was amusing, I was rather disappointed that the writers showed so little imagination in using the wood for sheep joke, over and over. It seemed lazy to me.

    I have this vision of Penny and Leonard on the altar, reciting their vows, then they turn to face each other and you see that Penny is 8.5 months pregnant.

    I do like the elevator repairman as the final scene of the show, however.
