This week’s episode of Big Bang Theory was surprisingly light on the Sheldon. While Raj and Howard hung out and looked at space thanks to Raj getting to control a telescope in Hawaii, Penny and Leonard acted like they were still dating because her father gave her a lot of trouble for breaking up with Leonard. It seems like things are moving back towards those two getting back together which I am fully in support of, but I would rather they just get together and stay together instead of this enhanced Ross and Rachel stuff. I missed the first minute or so of the episode, so we’ll just jump in where I started. 8:01pm – Sheldon’s giving the pizza guy trouble on the phone for not wanting to take the stairs. Leonard goes to get Penny while, he assumes, the pizza guy spits on their food.
“Do you think they gave Wolverine an adamantium prostate?” – Raj in their discussion of superhero butts. Of course not, the prostate isn’t a bone and the adamantium only adhered to bone. Duh.
Leonard sees Penny’s dad who’s visiting and then lands a big kiss on him before sending him away.
