  1. Just been watching the original pilot on Youtube. Aside from how they met the girl, a lot of it is almost the same as the series pilot.
  2. You mean other than the illegal day care center her mother used to run in their basement, and having to take care of her brothers and sisters, with their snotty noses and poopy diapers?
  3. Has anyone else noticed, that almost the entire cast of characters, had a sad upbringing?
  4. Yes she did, back in Season 1, in The Fuzzy Boots Corollary.
  5. I see Amy is in the denim skirts again.

    I don't know about a 50p coin (that's a new one on me), but there have been four commemorative, 2 Euro coins issued by the EU, along with a number of national ones. The EU wide ones are as follows:- March 2007, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome. January 2009, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Economic and Monetary Union. January 2012, to commemorate ten years of euro banknotes and coins. August 2015, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the EU flag. I suggest you take Amy's advice, and GET A NEW COMPUTER!

    There were 12 countries from 1st January 1995 until 1st January 1996, but the flag never has represented the number of member states. The flag goes back to 1955, when it was created as the flag of the Council of Europe. In 1983, the European Parliament decided that the flag should be used for the EEC. In 1985, it was adopted by all the leaders, as the official emblem of the European Communities, later to become the European Union. On both those dates, the EEC (as it was then) consisted of just 9 countries. ETA: I must admit to being rather shocked (and I'm not singling out you joyceraye), at how little many British subjects know, about an organisation we have been a member of (in its various incarnation) for 44 years, and to whom we have paid ever half a trillion pounds.

    Not true. There are only 12 gold stars on the EU flag, yet there are 28 (soon to be 27) member countries.

    This is scene I was referencing.

    Nope, no mistake.

    The baby is a her. What I was actually referring to, was The Cooper Extraction:- Penny: Oh, she’s pregnant? That’s great. You’re gonna be an uncle. Uncle Sheldon. Sheldon: No, I will be Uncle Dr. Cooper.
  12. Ship Zone

    Don't you mean Uncle Dr. Cooper and Auntie Dr. Fowler?
  13. So Schrödinger's Nephew?

    I wish she would stop putting herself down, with comments about how she looks. She truly is beautiful.
  15. Ship Zone

    Just for you.

    Looks like it, but aren't those framed pictures from Dr Lorvis' basement?
  17. The French woman was mentioned in The Bad Fish Paradigm:- Penny: No, I meant has he ever been involved with someone who wasn’t a braniac? Sheldon: Oh. Well, a few years ago he did go out with a woman who had a PhD in French Literature. Penny: How is that not a braniac? Sheldon: Well, for one thing, she was French. For another, it was literature.

    It was a joke. Must've taken a lot of self-restraint, on Sheldon's part. Martha was

    Except Sheldon, who is possibly a robot.
  20. That doesn't make her "trained in a scientific field". She would simply be given a set of data sheets to study, in the same way an operative (eg. a cleaner), given an industrial chemical to work with, would be given a COSHH data sheet to study.
  21. She got trained in sales, not a scientific field. Penny sells pharmaceuticals, she doesn't develop them.
  22. Are you suggesting Isabella is stupid?
  23. She's a Community College dropout, married to a "PhD whose only friends are in a tight, highly-educated social circle."
  24. In The Junior Professor Solution, it all blew up in her face. How do you know male viewers don't like them? You could make the same argument, for Penny being with Leonard.
  25. Or maybe the best, depending on your POV.
