    The episode is called "The Citation Negation." Leonard researches citations for Sheldon and Amy's paper. He finds a Russian paper that basically discredits super-asymmetry. Bernadette tries to beat Howard and Raj at Fortnite, and recruits help from Denise. I'll work on a longer report. Johnny iced his hand all night, and his face showed he was in pain. The injury wasn't written in.

    "The Citation Negation" The opening scene takes place in 4B. Sheldon and Amy are discussing how the citations should appear in their paper. Sheldon says in the appendices and wants Amy to do the research. She suggests they have a grad-student do it, but Sheldon doesn't like the idea. Amy then suggests Leonard, but Sheldon is hesitant. It cuts to Sheldon in 4A proclaiming that he's having an affair with Rita, a cafeteria worker. He tells Leonard not to say anything. Penny enters and asks Leonard what was going on. Leonard says that Sheldon was testing him to see if he could keep a secret, but he couldn't tell Penny because he didn't want to "fail" Sheldon's test. The next scene takes place in the cafeteria. Sheldon and Amy approach Leonard sitting at a table. Sheldon says he is not having an affair. Leonard obviously knew better. Amy was upset that Leonard didn't have the desire to reach out to her. She asks him if he thinks Sheldon is desireable to women, and Leonard says, "No." They ask him to research the citations for their paper. He agrees, saying it will be fun for the three of them to do it together. Sheldon reveals that they aren't going to join him. Leonard likes that better. Howard and Raj are at the Wolowitz house playing Fortnite. Raj's avatar does a celebratory dance, and Howard kills him. Then, Howard's character dances. Bernie enters and wants to play. She dies almost instantly. Leonard and Raj go to the university library to research the citations. Raj is spooked by the atmosphere, so they both agree that they'll talk to each other. Raj keeps calling Leonard's name to which he responds. Eventually, Leonard moans and wheezes, distressing Raj. There was too much dust, and Leonard stopped to breath his inhaler. Bernie practices playing Fortnite at her office. Penny does well and implies that Bernie is just stupid. I can't remember the wording... At the university library, Raj and Leonard read articles at a table. Leonard comes across one in Russian and suggests they have Howard translate it. Raj tries to use Google Translate, which generates pure rubbish. He says he understands why it's a free app. Howard translates the article for the guys, minus Sheldon, in the cafeteria. The author says there is no merit to super-asymmetry. Apparently, the article is from the 70s, and not a new idea. Johnny had trouble uttering this Russian name several times. Leonard suggests that they tell Sheldon together, but Raj and Howard want Leonard to do it alone. Bernie goes to the comicbook store and encounters Denise. Stuart was away. There was some back-and-forth about the gals' choices in men. Denise's family had a funeral home, implying Stuart is a corpse. Denise inquires about Bernie's attraction to Howie. Bernie says, "Look at him." Denise offers to teach Bernie how to play Fortnite. One take had Denise showing Bernie a callus on her finger. Another said that she hasn't been in sunlight in forever. Leonard is in the hallway and keeps walking up to and from 4B. He can't seem to get up the courage to knock. Penny comes up the flight of stairs and notices. Leonard fills her in. She encourages him to leave an anonymous tip. Apparently, she tried telling a friend in high school that the girl's boyfriend was cheating on her. It didn't go well. Penny was the other girl and even had a hickie on her neck. The girl gave Penny a blackeye just before prom. They stop talking about her high school years, and Leonard proceeds to knock on the door. Penny says wait until she goes into 4A, clearly wanting to avoid the drama. In the Wolowitz's living room, Denise teaches Bernie how to play the game. Her tactics include insulting Bernie, who gets offended. At one point, she tells her to hit "X," and Bernie doesn't know where the button is. Denise makes fun of her for not knowing her alphabet. Leonard tells Sheldon and Amy about the article. Sheldon is initially shocked. Then, he breaks a white-board and goes crazy with rage, before storming off to the bedroom. There is a bedroom scene between Amy and Sheldon. Amy tries to comfort Sheldon, but he doesn't like her calm rationale. She gets upset about their research being cast aside, and Sheldon decides he doesn't like this reaction either. (I think this scene was here...) Back at the Wolowitz's, Bernie plays Howard and Raj again. She smugly says how bad she is, surely hoping to show them up. She does well at first and impresses Raj, but then Howard kills her. She gets upset and storms off, proclaiming that she makes more money than Howard. Leonard and Penny go to check-in on Amy and Sheldon, who stayed home from work. Both are in their pajamas, eating on the couch depressed. They discuss being wrong about their theory, it being Saturday, and saying the Russian professor's name wrong. Basically, they were wrong three times. Sheldon becomes interested in Leonard and Penny's take-out dinner, so the two leave it for them. The tag finds Penny and Bernie playing Fortnite in 4A. Bernie is happy that she's beating Penny, and squeals in delight. Penny doesn't care at all. She just wants to go to lunch. Leonard enters and Bernie is so happy that she hits the water bottle out of his hand. The second take had water splash out and cover Johnny. Penny says that she'll drive and leaves after Bernie. BTS: - Melissa Rauch was out by her car when my group was about to enter the soundstage. She was putting a birthday bag, for who I assumed to be her daughter, in the car. - Johnny iced his hand all night. When he was seated, his hand was steady and laid on a book, the table, etc. He looked to be in pain. - Wyatt McClure, a.k.a. Billy Sparks from YS, was a VIP. He sang "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star." - Kaley and Johnny thanked the audience. I didn't know if Johnny would or not with his hand, but he still climbed up the railing. - A man proposed to his girlfriend towards the end of the evening. A lot of the crew members were in tears. I'll try to field any questions tomorrow. Sorry if any of this is out of order. There were a ton of scenes, both taped and pre-taped.

    I actually watched the pilot when it aired for the very first time on NZ TV. But I did not watch for about 3 seasons. I was busy studying at the time. It was this episode I recall came on and I saw Leonard and Penny in the kitchen. I Admit I Thought they were cute. But the episode The Einstein Approximatation. Hooked me. I Thought it was the most unique episode of comedy I had seen in years.

    Thank you so much Kev!!! Poor Johnny Funny someone just brought up fortnite a few days ago. I'm surprised tough that Bernadette calls Denise instead of Anu or Penny, unless Stuart is somehow involved... And man, it seems like they need to work more on the credibility of their academic plots. Why would Leonard do the literature search for a paper that's not his? Unless they have officially accepted him to their team...? The paper plot reminds me of Sheldon's false discovery of a new element and the confirmation that it was false.

    The raw emotion between the two of them was beyond beautiful. Beginning with him looking for forgiveness for his actions with Cole; then feeling vulnerable in his place in the relationship. Her feeling a bit miffed at his insecurity and that he should know how she feels, until it spills out for the very first time that yes, she loves him. The short moment of silence when they are looking at each other and realizing what she said out loud, again, for the first time. The tables are turned and she is the one feeling vulnerable for giving voice to her feelings. He is overcome with joy at knowing at last. Those two emotions join in the most beautiful moment in TBBT. That short silent moment. His affirming that it was the first time she said the words. Her agreeing in a beautiful shaking voice and escaping because the result of their moment will bring tears of joy from them both. Their best moment. By themselves. No interruptions. In that wonderful hallway between their two apartments. TBBT at its best. Oh for the times of Season 6!

    I'm still not sure about Anu, that's me being honest though maybe in just one episode sometime in the future the character just clicks for me. Will have to see if the mutism is credible or not in the story, I guess it's possible that he could have a relapse. He's slept with other women before and had no issues, but maybe it's different with someone who might end up being his wife. Honestly the story sounds incredibly corny even on a human level, but I guess it reveals another part of Raj to Anu. I feel like the writers are revealing stuff to Anu to kind of test her, will she stay or will she bolt. Thinking about it I really wished they started this storyline or something like it near the beginning of Season 11 so therefore giving it a couple of seasons to develop. I think it's going to feel rather rushed (which true can be a characteristic of an arranged marriage deal) and it won't have that same kind of rewarding payoff a slightly slower character progression would have provided for fans.

    Alot has been said about that scene over the years. I believe Kaley and Johnny themselves have said it was their favorite scene in the series. Perhaps it felt real because maybe it had a special meaning for them. They had dated IRL and somehow you don't lose that feeling for each other altogether. Just beautifully said!!

    I first knew about Kaley from 8 simple rules and was hooked. Funny, my fav character was Amy Davidson. Lol. But gradually kaley grew on me, her acting and facial expressions were the key and she was fit.. [emoji2956] I started watching charmed, well the last season cause of Kaley. When I found out she will be in this new sitcom called The Big bang Theory, well I had to watch and from day one the chemistry between Johnny and Kaley made me root for Lenny big time. Also Johnny portray of Leonard was a big part in me continuing to watch the show. His love for Penny was unconditional and true. Sent from my SM-N960F using Tapatalk
