    After much cajoling.

    Did you miss where Sheldon grabbed her good arm and helped her up?

    Not if the first thing Sheldon does is move the shirt around the arm as opposed to putting the arm through it.

    Maybe. But probably not a good idea and besides you answered how she'd get back

    That would have been the point of the whole car sequence.
    Although if she was doped up at the hospital, she might have had problems getting back home.

    Except for the fact that Sheldon appears to be totally asexual.

    You obviously don't get the character.
    Sheldon is OCD and most likely has Asperberger's as well.
    He doesn't relate to other well because of this and the fact he feels he's incredibly superior to everyone else.

    --Did you miss where Sheldon grabbed her arm and helped her up?

    no, but it was hardly a "help me up" it was more of "hold my hand." If you watch, she stood up pretty much all by herself.

    -- Not if the first thing Sheldon does is move the shirt around the arm as opposed to putting the arm through it.

    Her arm was through it at the hospital. So somehow, she had to have raised her arm to get it through. Highly unlikely if her shoulder was actually dislocated. The point is, it would have been much easier to select a different button down shirt.

    -- Except for the fact that Sheldon appears to be totally asexual.

    Then why did he "peek" at her ass? And what about Penny? You think she's going to stand there, during the entire exchange, with his hand on her boob? Not a chance. Do you know *any woman* who would stand there, like that, while some friend is groping her? Doubt it. The writers are trying to be funny -- instead they're just being stupid.


    --You obviously don't get the character.
    --Sheldon is OCD and most likely has Asperberger's as well.

    The writers and Jim Parsons have come out and said that he does not have Asperberger's.

    -- He doesn't relate to other well because of this and the fact he feels he's -- incredibly superior to everyone else.

    Sure, but he's also smart enough to put that aside when people are in pain and in need of his assistance.

    That was the shower curtain. She must have had grabbed it when she fell... it was off the rungs.

    Didn't look like any shower curtain I've ever seen...sure looked like a towel or blanket to me.

    Then someone stole her shower curtain, because all that was left on the shower rod were rings.

    If I were Sheldon I would have demanded to rub Vicks on Penny's chest in exchange for singing "Soft Kitty" -- but I guess once was enough for Sheldon ;-)

    And she did it without using her "bad arm" either.
    Good thing Sheldon was there to counter balance in case she fell.

    Yes, a button down shirt would have been easier but think about it.
    If you move the t-shirt around the "bad" arm, then up and over the head and other arm, it's doable.

    To be like "the hero".

    I've seen several women allow gay men to "grope" them.
    Since Penny no doubt considers Sheldon to be asexual at this point (remember she did ask Leonard once what's Sheldon's deal and Leonard confessed that no one knew), I can see it.

    No, they said that wasn't their intention and the writers came it with the character by observing some very technical engineer types that they used to work with.
    Some Aspberger's advocates feel that they may have been undiagnosed (which did happen as the diagnosis for Aspberger's is fairly recent.)

    He has to realize that they are in pain and need help first.
    And you know very well that there's a difference between book smart and social smart.

    If you basically turn the shirt inside out and put it on right (injured) arm first you can slide it up that arm to the shoulder with very minimal movement of the arm. Then stretch the neck hole over the head and raise the left arm vertically along the side of the body to get it into the left armhole. Then pull the shirt down.

    However they didn't show Sheldon putting the shirt on this way. The way he started doing it, head first, she would have had to move her dislocated sholder..

    Edit: Or what Jyoung said an hour ago.

    From your 30 Rock thread post:

    I think you need to stick with 30 Rock and let this show go. It just doesn't seem like your kind of show. You are thinking too much and not allowing the comedy to be 'spoon-fed' to you.

    That's for sure. I keep hoping the show will get better, which is why I continue to watch it. As I've said before, the geek/science/tech jokes are fun, it's just too bad they can't write original or funny plots.

    I didn't like the camping scene at all. The portrayal of them being high was silly.

    Yeah.

    But it wasn't silly in a funny way. You ever see the people at a Pink Floyd laser light show? Ain't no way that they were going to miss the meteor shower high.

    This. I think it's become so Sheldon centric that every episode is becoming the same thing. Sheldon's awkwardness around "normal" situations. How many normal situations can they put the guy in? Sheldon driving...check, Sheldon trying to act sypmathetic...check, Sheldon trying to act like a boss...check. OK, we get it. It's time to explore something new with the character. Maybe a girlfriend or something like that.

    As for the episode, as soon as they pulled out the cookies, I knew they were spiked (is that the right term in this case?). My favorite was after they just spent all that time looking for pudding, one of them said....maybe there's more pudding or something like that. And the line by Sheldon...Heroes always peek :)
