    I loved the bit where Bernadette came out from seeing Howard's Mom and told him she just wanted to see if Bernadette was OK. Howard was so sure his mother couldn't deal with him getting married but he is the one having trouble letting go.

    And then cue the horrified reactions when Howard asked if it seemed a little sexy when she did that. :)

    They were on a roll tonight. We had to pause the TiVo to laugh again.

    I was wondering during the open if Leonard was messing with Sheldon about the water glass and the napkin.

    Which made Raj's move brilliant.

    And the vanity card was again a hoot.

    Thought it was pretty funny that Sheldon's worst possible fears came true. And the nice little bookend of playing cards in the hazmat suits.

    I was a bit bothered by Penny suddenly being buddy-buddy with Pria, after hating her for the last umpteen episodes.

    I wish they'd stop referring to Bernadette as Bernie. Sheldon, and I think Leonard started calling her that in this episode. She's such a pretty girl. "Bernie" doesn't fit her. :thumbsdown:

    Howard called her Bernie when talking to her, so that is probably her official nickname.

    Wasn't it her former professor/boyfriend Glen (on the episode set at the scientific conference) that first called her Bernie and then Howard picked it up?

    Fun epsiode...it was nice that they mixed things up a lot vs. focusing on just Sheldon etc.

    This was a great episode! Just enough of each character.

    No AFF, so that right there made it better. The rest was so-so.

    I loved the evolution of Raj in this episode. His pranks and comments were very funny. Much better than the mopey Raj we've had for the past several weeks.

    As a Jew named Howard, married to a Catholic girl, I definitely thought this show was a hoot...somebody in writing researched/understood the Jewish mother/son relationship very well, including marrying a shiksa!

    And I loved that the very Jewish-looking doctor came out and knew exactly what Howard was going through.
