    This is among the dumber threads I've seen on this forum, and those of you who have been around as long as I have or longer, you know what an achievement that is.

    That said: Penny knows that Sheldon does not drive. He wasn't drunk enough to hurt himself or others, and she knew that he would ride the bus home, meaning he'd get home relatively safely. She was a bartender, she served him a drink, he accepted it and drank it. End of subject.

    And BTW, it's "Leonard," and the show is as much about him as it is about any of the other main characters.

    Not to someone that doesn't drink. Sheldon should have picked out the alcohol flavor immediately. I think they were just playing on the name and hoping that everyone would assume that it tasted the same or think so because people that drink can't tell the difference.

    Or maybe they were just going for the joke.

    You're in the wrong thread ;)
    You're looking for the "makes so much sense a blind man could see it" thread.

    Not when the comedy is savagely beaten out of it.

    No need - I thoroughly enjoyed it the first time, TYVM.

    You're the one who had a problem with Penny's actions - perhaps you need the Iced Tea and re-watch more than I.

    She served a guy who doesn't drive all of two drinks? Give it up. No one is going to be convicted for selling two drinks to a customer. I've seen people walk out of the bar every night far drinker than Sheldon.

    You live in a fantasy world.

    I find your non understanding of reality regarding the law in this matter to be perplexing.

    Like many things, it all depends on the consequences.

    Or a dry, litigious county!

    Please prove your point and provide a link to this "felony" you continue to mention.

    I think you must have a problem with anyone who drinks alcohol. Penny isn't a drunk. She is an adult who occasionally drinks.
    In season one she was a ditzy one dimensional character. She has evolved into a character with a many faceted personality. Part of her personality is that she is a little bit jaded. She is more like an real person now.

    No sober person laughs at all the inappropriate places and as loud as they do in reality. They are laugh tracks.

    The only time I have heard laughter like that is at comedy clubs when people are boozed up.

    They are actually real life audiences, not a laugh track, as Lorre says and both people who have been in the audience and guest stars attest to.

    Wil Wheaton has in fact described his appearances on the show on his blog. He mentioned the filming of this episode, and noted that upon entering the scene, the audience's reaction was so great, it actually threw him off of his timing and they had to cut and reshoot after telling the audience to take it down a notch.
