    There were other area codes close enough that in that situation, it made sense to say give it. You typically wouldn't do it for a neighbor, but they didn't know where the other family lived.

    Yeah, it's set between Houston and Beaumont, which are two hours apart. So an hour to either city.

    Notice it wasn’t a 555 area code, as usual.

    Did anyone else call the number?

    :)

    It was area code 409, which according to Wikipedia was split off the Houston area code in 1983. So, if the other family was in Houston, they would need the area code.

    Anyway, the professor just gave the whole number. It still doesn’t mean they had to dial it.

    Hey y’all! Were the coopers!

    409-356-6049

    A Galveston number.

    I will not be calling you back. Unless you are Professor Proton.
    Just in case someone else hasn’t called yet.

    I didn’t realize that it was Galveston.

    Although it's becoming more and more meaningless, I had to look up area codes and prefix exchange geographical location from time to time for my job.

    Here's the database I would consult for the 409 area code.

    (Type in "356" and hit the submit button.)

    I can't imagine Sheldon being comfortable actually living in Galveston though.

    What, being surrounded by all that water?
    You know he would have to have more than one evacuation plan.

    Loved this episode. Octopus aliens and Jesus. And they were good questions too!

    It was also one of the most moving episodes yet. The death of that young girl raised so many questions, questions that people of faith have been asking for millennia. Just some great acting and writing by all. Every character had some moments.

    One of my favorite shows.

    This show has been such a gem. Iain is amazing. The sister and meemaw are such great supporting characters. I always marvel, looking at the mother character and how much this actor looks like her own mother. It's uncanny to somebody like me, who never had kids. I'm such a fan of Laurie Metcalf anyway, and I also really like her daughter a lot.

    Really good episode. And coming right after BBT has its first Tam episode.

    Meemaw makes this show.

    A great cackle by Annie Potts at the very end. :)

    I loved the MeeMaw, Dad and Georgie on the couch scene. Enjoyed this episode.

    I will say I had never liked the MeeMaw that was on BBT a couple seasons ago. Never felt right. Now Annie Potts makes it work!

    The nice thing about this is that it does tie Sheldon's poor relationship/memory with his father in with TBBT. He remembers that his father wanted him to keep secrets from his mom, encouraging him to lie, even though it was making him physically sick.

    Old Sheldon on BBT: ”Mom smokes in the car. Jesus is okay with it, but we can’t tell Dad.”

    Considering his body of work as a parent so far, this is a stretch.

    Especially since was for his precious Meemaw and her horrible behavior taking minor to gambling establishment (obviously lying about his age there) getting drunk while in charge of minor (even worse considering where) letting minor drive car could have easily killed both of them and others. Dad comes off as quite the hero in this.

    And she comes across, at least to Georgie, as the cool grandparent. ;)

    But was he in the room when that happened? I don’t don’t recall that he was. He might not have been aware of it.

    After George, Georgie, and Meemaw explain what happened and Mary kicks them out, it cuts to a shot of Missy and Sheldon standing in the dining room and Missy says she loved everything about it. Presumably, they were standing there the whole time.
