Like I said it was funny. I loved it. But watching again. You can see how rushed it was compare to the other stories and how much funnier it would have been with them cutting the tree and even throwing it down the shaft. That was my point.

I think it could have been funnier if we had seen more of what happened in Texas to make it worthwhile going for Christmas. Without the decorations we wouldn't have known what time of year it was in the two houses. At least Lenny interacted with a tree and obviously had put decorations up. I thought Penny's lines about a physicist not knowing to hold on to an axe were funnier than if we'd seen that. Sheldon's screaming scenes, and Amy's nonsensical lines in the car about what Mary said, could have been omitted in favour of perhaps Lenny under that mistletoe or rescuing the tree-animal, Shamy singing carols in Mary's church, or perhaps the Bloomwitzopallis arriving home from the hospital.

Sheldon drove Penny to the hospital in the Adhesive Duck episode. 

Officially Penny was in charge so she was technically supervising Sheldon as a learner. She let him jump lights but he ended up in court when she wouldn't admit it because she couldn't afford the fine. Later when he said Amy taught him I took it to mean he'd finished his learner stage and passed his test for a full licence.

I agree the physicist line was funny as an offscreen gag. Also agree that some of the scenes could have been played out a lot better or omitted and replaced with funnier scenes instead of the much ado about nothing we were given.

Sometimes I wish the show had 40 minutes episodes. Surely some of the stories would have been better as we saw more on screen of what had been mentioned to happening off screen. :)

But then there's a change we would have to see Sheldon with his tightie whities on his head for fifteen or twenty of those minutes. Careful what you wish for.:icon_wink:

Of course they are...

Yep, this show is all about celebrating these people for their minds, abilities, and unique characteristics. That's why they lose every encounter with 'normal' people; Continue to fall prey to bullies, and; at no time triumph over life by using the things that make them special.

Yes, I  enjoy the show and, no, I don't want some radical paradigm shift to occur. I would, however, just once like to see them faced with some sort of dilemma and manage to come out on top. Let's see them achieve something and not be belittled, mocked, or humiliated in the process. Such a scenario could still be ripe with comedic opportunities.

When you put it like that it reminds me of the Charlie Brown syndrome...

I just rewatched "The Fetal Kick Catalyst" and realized they have made a mistake in this episode: Sheldon says he jad never touched Stuart, but he did touch him when they were drunk after the Shamy brunch! I don't think Sheldon was so drunk that he can't remember that...
