    Penny: So, what are you thinking for dinner?
    Leonard: Well, it's Thai food night.
    Penny: Well, honey, you don't live with Sheldon any more. You can have anything you want.
    Leonard: You're right. But what? Mexican? Italian? German? Indian? Greek? Cuban? Chinese? Pizza? Barbecue? Korean? Korean barbecue?
    Penny: How about Thai food?
    Leonard: Oh, thank God.

    I almost thought that Sheldon was about to patch things up with Amy when he was asking her to be a roommate. That would have wrapped things up too early I guess.

    I smiled a few times. My only laugh was the excellent vanity card.

    Every sitcom ever made eventually reaches the end of the creative road. I'm afraid BBT is rapidly approaching the end.

    Right before Bernadette suggested it, I said "Stuart could move in with Sheldon!" Although, I like him with Bernadette and Howard. It makes for awkwardness!

    Actually giving Sheldon a new roommate could inject more humorous situations into the show. They would have to learn each other's quirks and stuff which he and Leonard had already gone through.

    Maybe Raj should move in with him, or even Kripke.

    I was disappointed to see Leonard and Penny (and the show's producers) cave in to Sheldon at the end. I wonder where L&P will sleep?

    It could have been interesting to have Howard's half-brother be Sheldon's roommate. I wonder if the show will ever make use of the half-brother and father?

    I hope the poor actress who plays Raj's girlfriend gets paid a minimum fee just to show up.

    I was under the impression it would continue on like it is now; they sleep sometimes in Leonard's room, and the other times in Penny's apartment.

    I had the same problem.

    I recommend listening to "I Am Not Jessica Chastain." That should clear it up for you! :D
    Perhaps because that's what they said? ;)

    "Me and Doctor Jones, Doctor Jones Doctor Jones....
    We gotta a thang goin' on..."

    Maybe I was the only one who thought of the old Billy Paul single, Me & Mrs. Jones.

    Considering that Laura Spencer was billed as a series regular this episode, she's getting more than minimum fee.

    No word on whether or not she'll still be recurring on Bones.

    And Thor would totally crush Indy.

    I was disappointed in this as well. At the beginning of the episode, I was glad to see they were finally going to have Leonard and Penny move in together and that Sheldon would need to make changes. But by the end of the episode, we were back to the status quo, which seems odd that they'd want to do this. After 9 seasons of the previous arrangement, I'm surprised they wouldn't want to shake things up a little.

    I thought it was a very good episode. Stuart reacting to the suggestion he move in with Sheldon was perfect. Sheldon interviewing candidates was great. The whole key thing was funny, especially when Leonard was pausing before signing. The previously mentioned Leonard and Penny talking about dinner.

    Lots of funny stuff.

    I'm glad it was Thor AND Doctor Jones because Thor VS. Doctor Jones would be like Godzilla vs. Bambi.

    I thought of that immediately simply by reading the words- haven't seen this episode yet.

    Not me. But for some strange reason I got an impression of an Alan Parson's Project song in my head when I heard Thor and Doctor Jones.

    Yeah. Doctor Jones was even a bystander in his first movie! He'd never be able to handle Thor.

    Now that song is awesome! "For Christ's sake I am Ron Howard's daughter" and "The critics once considered me a highlight. Is this payback for the role I stole in Twilight"

    And also, wouldn't it be nice for Penny & Leonard to pay 1 rent, instead of 1 1/2. That's quite a bit of money Leonard's wasting to placate Sheldon.

    Pure speculation on my part, so I'll spoiler tag it.

    Waiting for someone to suggest that they swap apartments, since Penny's place is (apparently) smaller.

    Which results in Sheldon hanging out in the bigger apartment all the time, because Penny's place doesn't have a Perfect Spot in it.

    Unspoilered, because speculation isn't spoilers...
    I can't imagine Sheldon agreeing to that level of self-inflicted change...he can barely cope with the changes that are imposed on him by others! He would go nuts (nutser?) trying to adapt to an entirely new living environment.
