That was one of the funniest episodes yet! Much better than last week.
And, true to form, completely predictable. yawn.
Sheldon peeked...that was awesome.
Why do you have a tattoo of the Chinese character for soup on your left buttock?
The camping thing was sitcom 101.
"Sing Soft Kitty to me."
The camping plot was only fair to good but the scenes with doped up Penny and filling out the medical forms were gold.
"That's not my arm."
Good thing it wasn't Howard.
Laughed my ass off.
Partly because I'm here drinking Diet Rockstar to keep me awake enough to head out at 1am to see the Leonids. Of course, I'm not so geeky to bring out a satellite dish, I'm just going to put the top down on the car, turn on the seat bun warmers and listen to a book on the iPod.
The "special" cookies really got me going. If he hadn't just returned from out of town I'd have gone to watch the showers from a friend's place where he lives in a geodesic dome on a hill in the boonies, and probably knows someone who could provide cookies for the occaision.
Oh, as for Sheldon. One of the endearing aspects to his character is like Monk, he's socially inept and would not be handy to have around to help with trivial things. But if you seriously need him, he'll always step up and help with anything you need.
"That's not my arm."
Funniest lines in the episode.
Actually, IIRC it was something like:
Sheldon: [Answering questions about Penny's mental health] Occasional fits of misplaced aggression...
Sheldon: Possible Turrets...
I agree with those who said that the scenes with Sheldon and Penny were some of the funniest on BBT ever, and those of the other guys camping and the effects of the "special cookies" were rather sitcom formulaic.
The Sheldon/Penny plotline made it well worth watching, though.
One the best episodes ever - my wife and I laughed throughout the whole show.
Too many funny lines to mention. Some predictable moments that were still funny. Good stuff!
I liked the camping scenes better. The Penny-Sheldon plot was just really stupid..
-- Penny had no problem standing up on her own in the tub
-- There's no way she would have been able to get her arm in that shirt with a discolated shoulder
-- She could have easily driven herself (although Sheldon would have had to drive back)
-- She would have been much better off calling a cab
-- The entire arm/boob thing was drawn out waayyy too long.. don't you think any woman would have jerked back or pushed his hand away with her good arm? Really stupid scene. It would have been better if Penny just said "Hey, THAT'S NOT MY ARM!" and pulled away. Then Sheldon says "oops!" with that same smile when he said he "peeked".
-- I'm really getting tired of Sheldon's cluelessness wrt emotions and other people. Sure, a little bit is good, but he's smart, too and can recognize a crisis. It's as if he's doing it on purpose, even when other people are clearly in need.
-- and several other nits with that entire scene.
My wife and I really enjoyed this ep....much funnier that the last few IMO.
I think it was "episodes of sub-psychotic rage."
I think it was more like:
"does that feel like an arm?"
Which I think is funnier.
"Then you can let go!"
The tourette's thing was gold.
Sheldon/Penny great. Camping not so inventive but still pleasant.
It's Tourette's Syndrome, not Turrets - although that's funny in its' own right. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tourette_syndrome
You guys need to learn how to spell - it's Tourette syndrome.
Oh, and I still don't like the Indian guy...
Camping was seriously the stupid plot. How many times have we seen the start accidentally eat special brownies/cookies/food and then go on to show how they laugh at stupid stuff and then invariably get the munchies.
[MockingAmericanAccent]Oh, and I still don't like the Indian guy[/MockingAmericanAccent]
The biggest laugh we got from the whole episode was Raj mimicking Leonard's American accent.
Still can't figure out why Penny wouldn't choose a button up shirt where she could just keep her arm inside rather than a T-shirt that would require moving the shoulder.
Sheldon knocking three times on each of Penny's doors was pretty funny.
Maybe she didn't have any button-up shirts that went with those pants.
I guess I'm tiring a bit of this show. I still like it, but I don't rewatch episodes like I used to. It's just...I dunno.
