    I got this from Nicole this morning. If anyone has any questions, PM me and I’ll pass it on. She said she would answer if she remembers. Name: The Paintball Scattering. In addition to the main cast, we have President Siebert, Anu, Denise and a couple of others with small parts. ***This is not scene by scene, just a summary of the episode as a whole.*** Shamy’s paper has been published and it is getting really positive feedback from the science community. Siebert allows Shamy to eat in his private dining room, and tells them there is a lot of press to be done. He wants Amy to do the press and Sheldon to stay out of it. At first, Sheldon understands, but when a website publishes an interview titled “The Neurobiologist Who Revolutionized Physics” he gets very upset and blames Amy for it. They fight through a few scenes, and at one point Amy points out she talks about Sheldon constantly through the interview and “I didn’t write the headline.” Leonard and Penny want to have a paintball game, and throughout the episode they get Shamy, Howadette, Raj/Anu, and Denise/Stuart to join them. (Howard volunteers both him and Bernadette without asking her, because he knows she will be game, “I’ve been pretty annoying lately and she’s gonna want to shoot me.”) There is a comic book store scene that has Raj offering to install a doorbell alarm for Anu (he has one and loves it), and Denise tells Leonard/Penny/Stuart that her roommate is moving out and she hasn’t been able to find a new one wink wink nudge nudge. Penny says to Stuart “you hear that? SHE NEEDS A ROOMMATE” and he either flees to the back of the store or out the door, depending on what take they use. Later, Stuart is telling Howardette and Raj that Denise wasn’t mad, “she said she was fine.” They all know that wording is a bad sign and start consoling him. Raj gets a notification on his phone from Anu’s new doorbell alarm and Bernadette tells him it’s wrong to check it. He says “who is this guy?” and she is interested. They see Anu hug a man and invite him in. At the paintball game, Denise and Penny are captains. Denise picks Leonard first. He is very confused about being picked first for anything. Penny picks Bernadette. I don’t recall who all is on the teams but I think Shamy is on the same team, and so is Raj/Anu. Stuart is picked last but still picked (by Penny, who pretends there are more people to choose from so he feels better about it, but he is still thrilled because sometimes he doesn’t get picked even when there is no one else left). During the game the fighting couples fight more intensely, and Raj makes some smart mouth comments to Anu before revealing he knows she had a guy over. She admits it was her ex, he came to pick up some stuff, and they still talk but she isn’t cheating on Raj. She demands he take the app off his phone, and that she should trust him. He yells “HOW CAN I TRUST YOU I HARDLY KNOW YOU” and they stare at each other. While this is going on, Denise finds Stuart and shoots him about 20 times. Leonard finds Penny peeking out of her team’s base and says “bang, I got you.” She said “why don’t you shoot me then?” he said they are too close together and it will hurt. She says “no it won’t” and shoots him. He is in pain and she still doesn’t believe they are too close so he shoots her and she’s like “oh wow okay that does hurt.” (They’re not fighting, I thought it was kind of an adorable scene in a way.) At one point, Bernadette shoots Howard and he says “ow” and she offers to “kiss it and make it better,” and they go into one of the sheds to have sex. Denise walks in on them when she tries to get the team flag and they throw it out the door to her. Anu storms off, and Raj offers to drive her home but she refuses. Shamy is also leaving and they offer to take her with them. Leonard and Penny find Stuart and he admits he is scared to move too fast and lose Denise. They both kinda give him a pep talk and Leonard at one point basically says he doesn’t think the fear of losing the person important to you ever goes away. That leads to Stuart apologizing to Denise and swearing he’s serious about the relationship, he’s just scared. Denise says she understands and she doesn’t want to mess it up, either. Tag is Shamy giving a joint interview. The interviewer asks Sheldon a question first, and it is one that Siebert had initially warned him might get asked (about the Russian paper). Sheldon tells Amy he’ll wait in the car and runs off, and Amy smiles at the interviewer and turns the microphone back toward herself.

    Actually, no it doesn’t. She was shown as being afraid of getting married, you don’t do things you’re afraid of on a whim. Now, if you want to chalk it up to the alcoholic they turned Penny into, that’s more likely.

    It wasn't a whim and it wasn't a marriage. She thought she was on a amusement park ride. She considered it "fake".

    Ok, here are bloopers that Nicole passed along to me, this evening. Again, thank you so much Nicole for the taping information and the bloopers: In the cold open, Leonard is reacting to what Sheldon is saying, and the camera holds on him, and everyone was laughing at his expression, and then we heard someone yell "Johnny" and we realized the pause wasn't in the script and he just forgot it was his line. Also in the cold open, Mayim forgot it was her line, and she was just messing with a food container. Jim looked at her and said "it's your turn," and she jumped and said "wait was I supposed to say something?" At that point Johnny turned to the audience and said "this isn't even real champagne!" (Cold open was Lenny and Shamy celebrating the publication of the paper.) They called cut on a scene early (to rewrite a line) and before the monitors cut out, Joshua Malina looked right into the camera and struck a pose. The pose Malina struck was he put his hand on his hip and jutted it out. It was hilarious. Rati was saying a bit of a lengthy sentence and she slurred two words together and immediately started the line over, they yelled cut and she just threw her hands up and said "yeah that was (something I couldn't make out.)" In that same scene, Kunal had a line (involving a raccoon that was huge from eating his cheese of the month club - something he knows from his doorbell camera) that kept making him laugh and he would look at the monitors and smirk and shake his head. In one group scene they kept on cutting and redoing the same exchange, and once when the monitors were off (this was on a set way off to the side) we hear Kunal over the mic, "should we do better acting?" During the same exchange they were doing over and over, after Kunal asked that, Kevin said something and Melissa started her response immediately (the sympathy for Stuart when he was saying what Denise said when he apologized for running away from her) and Kunal leaned over and was like "you have to wait for the laugh, Melissa!" Kevin and Lauren kept having to repeat a kiss and they kept laughing, first time I thought it was a blooper but they did it each time (this is right at the end of the scene) so I'm still not entirely sure if that was them or the characters. The interviewer at the end said "Dr. Sheldon" instead of Dr. Cooper and she caught it before they did - "So Dr. Sheldon...*throws hands in the air and laughs* Dr. Sheldon." *monitors cut out*

    Thanks @Tensor and thanks to Nicole. Maybe her presence brought luck because I think this may be my favorite or second favorite of the season. I'll try to keep low expectations, but it sounds fun and good and the characters are confronted with challenges (that are also IC and consistent with the story for a change). First, I really like that they seem to not play into the so tired and boring jokes/dynamics they usually do with Lenny, and Leonard and Penny. This could have easily turned into a Lame Leonard feast, and maybe there are some jokes from that genre that Nicole didn't mention, but if so it is not the focus and he does get Penny. Him not wanting to hurt her sounds cute and very IC (and his comment about the fear of losing a person you love could be connected with his avoidance of shooting her to make a nice episode-based fanfic). Also, a very welcome change - Lenny are not among the fighting couples, and they actually initiate the game! They initiate something together, and something that makes sense that both of them would enjoy! (because they DO have things in common...) I'm glad Stuart and Denise get through it. I like her and I like them together. I think she is may be the best new character of the last two seasons. Seems like Raj's "euphoria" is finally breaking, and the realization that he doesn't know her is coming through. I think he wants a happy marriage so bad that he somewhat repressed that and convinced himself that this works for him. He jumped into a latter stage of relationship in his head. Anu may be fine with not knowing him too well before marriage and maybe she recognizes it, but she might also view the relatioinship in a positively biased light and/or try to move fast in a new relationship, due to issues to do with her ex. When she talked with Penny and Bernadette it sounded like they had a long history. What I prefer for Raj is that he either decide to take things slower with Anu, getting to know each other, or decide to break up with her (ending things nicely this time and not like a jerk!), and later meet someone with whom he has a potential to have a good relationships. I don't have to see him married, just a hint of a potentially good relationship is enough for me (and hey, if things don't go well with Anu, I have a girl for him She even, coincidentally, has a somewhat similar name). In a way I think a comparison could be made between Raj's relationship and Stuart's. Stuart's started "organically" and was based on him and Denise getting to know each other and mostly her seeing different sides of him, after they knew each other in a more basic way. That gave Raj the push to have his father set him up. Raj started a relationship based on a basic knowledge about Anu, they match "on paper" (in fact, he is deterred by her on person for the first minutes). Very quickly he claims he wants to marry her, and they start preparing soon. They do get to know each other, but perhaps not enough to get married soon, apparently not really enough for Raj anyway. Meanwhile, Stuart is afraid of going to fast when Denise, who he's been with for longer, suggests moving in together, and this is presented as sort of a "healthy" fear, due to caring about the relationship. Not really sure what's my point but...here.

    To start the Shamy storyline is mostly filler. It will nice to see Siebert though Like Lenny planning a group event. They may be to many not the favorite couple but they are the couple that the group is centered around. The Denise Stuart story I like. Saying that I hope they spend less time on the screen in the final 13 episodes. Anu has to go. I’m not sure why she was set up with Raj when she had a recent boyfriend. The wedding will be supposedly in 5 episodes. Anu reminds me how Priya was at the end.

    What To Expect From The Big Bang Theory/Young Sheldon Crossover screenrant.com "Since The Big Bang Theory will be wrapping up its 12-season run next year, it's safe to say that this is going to be the closest thing fans will ever get to see the two shows collaborate."

    Members of the Caltech (see I can get it), Geology department, among others. Actually, we have seen him play. He was firing with both hands as him, Raj, and Howard charged after Sheldon sacrificed himself (and looking at the shots that hit Sheldon, the other team seemed to be pretty good shots. Now, the other team may have been out of ammo, they possibly fired it all at Sheldon, but they still needed to get all of them before they reloaded. Since they did win the trophy, it seems they were able to get all of the other team, before they were able to reload, indicating they had some sort of skill in this particular activity. See, The Skank Reflex Analysis.

    Well, Penny also thought Vegas weddings were a joke and not real. I don't think she would have done it if she thought it was a proper wedding. Anyway, thanks for the TR!

    Warning...all of this is my personal opinion. Feel free to disagree with me as I disagree with a LOT of what was written! I don't think Anu, Beverly, Larry, Stuart or Denise need to go. Anu is adequate and I expected this to be Raj's season ending or not. It's just his turn. Beverly and Larry are so good at what they do it's remarkable. I actually like Stuart and always have and I think he deserves some happiness, too. And it's about time they had a girl who was good at games and movies. If anything I'm tired of the other girls being made fun of for NOT knowing that stuff. Besides, I want to see the comic shop a couple more times before the end. I can't see why there's complaining about Raj's mom and Dad either, either. i find them personally to be funny. I don't mind Bert appearing occasionally, either. We need to have some interaction with other people at Cal Tech once in awhile. And I disagree vehemently with the choice of Barry Kripke for the same reason, plus, Barry is always good for a laugh, and this is a comedy after all. I disagree that Meemaw should have come back. That actress is not to blame but she was universally disliked in that role. She as shoehorned in for a few quick moments and given a really bad storyline. And while I miss Mrs. Wolowitz, I think they handled her departure beautifully, aside from having Halley cry like her. That gets on every nerve I have. If you're saluting her without seeing the baby, fine, but the crying was over the top. Just because they owned them doesn't mean they played them enough to have it make a difference. I think they tried them since they were trendy but that thy might have played more fantasy stuff and not that much of those. I may be prejudiced because I didn't like that ep at all but I'm trying not to be.

    Thank Nicole for the information and thanks to you for passing it on. I love the idea of a gang paintball episode, it was on my TBBT bucket list, so this will probably jump to my favorite season 12 episode when it airs. I sort of wish Anu and Raj would break up, I still would like if Missy would revisit, right after her divorce, and within two episodes they would hook up, run off and get married in Las Vegas. It would be so funny if the show ended with Raj being Sheldon’s brother-in-law.

    Thanks for posting the info. However the episode sounds kind of boring outside of the paintball game. And even that doesn't sound to good. The Shamy plot reminds me of when Sheldon did a interview about the paper Leonard and he published. Where he didn't mention Leonard once in the interview and Leonard's upset when he finds out. But it looks like they are laying the ground work for Sheldon and Amy to win a Nobel Prize. It does sound nice that Leonard didn't want to shoot Penny saying it would hurt. And Penny proceeding to shoot Leonard because she doesn't believe him is funny. But all in all it is another mediocre sounding episode. I hope it translates better on screen but i doubt it. It is nice to see that Lenny aren't the ones fighting although given that they don't have a plot just some scenes it makes sense.

    Not being married fits Sheldon. He is most interested only in himself and that fits his character. I think both Penny and Sheldon characters have both changed. But some people only see what they want to see.

    A fake wedding to Zack is probably what she would do as a free spirited whim! A real marriage, not even likely. Even she knew he was dumb, tall, had muscles and a little money!

    It is impossible for me to agree with you more!!!!! Thank you so much!!! Sounds like a fun episode! Thanks @Tensor and thank Nicole for us. Glad she got to go for season 12!!!

    Hey, it was a major distraction! Anyone being kissed by Penny could easily forget where they are and what they're doing at the time. He's lucky he didn't shoot his toes off. He's also lucky the gun wasn't an automatic. That would have done some major damage to his feet. 😊

    My opinions on the article: https://screenrant.com/big-bang-theory-character-exits-need-to-go/ Hurt: 9. Eric Galbebhauser Irrelevant - Neither Gablehauser nor Siebert were needed more than the episodes that utilized them. 8. Dan: Pharmaceutical Rep Boss Same - He was in two episodes, (or was it three). 7. Priya Her story was done. Why have her back (except for Raj's wedding, if it happens). 6. Meemaw Not the version TBBT portrayed. Maybe at Sheldon's wedding, but that's all. She lives in Texas and is old. 5. Mike Rostenkowiski Could have been used more, but they have a cast of regulars to service. How many stories can they really fit him into. 4. Missy Cooper Lives in Texas. I'd have liked to see more of her (wink, wink). But again, unless a story called for it. Maybe she could have been in the episode where she gave birth. 3. Siebert - Irrelevant - Neither Gablehauser nor Siebert were needed more than the episodes that utilized them. 2. Mrs Wolowitz Carol Ann died so it was fitting Mrs. Wolowitz followed 1. Claire Like the actress, did not like the the character. She was only there to break up Raj and Emily. Needs to go: 11. Anu Hope not. Good match for Raj. Let's hope they get over the Paintball episode problem 10. Beverly A little Beverly goes a long way. I'd be fine with another return visit. 9. Halley We've never seen Halley. Bobby Hill's voice is just not babyish enough. 8. Larry Fowler Larry's great... especially when he doesn't talk. He gets his point across. But it's also cool hearing Teller talk. 7. Denise Why? She's fine. Stuart needed to find a geek like himself 6. Mrs Koothrappali Haven't been used for awhile. Probably back for ex spatting at the wedding. 5. Bert AGREE 4. Barry Kripke Naw... Occasional Kripke is good Kripke 3. Dr Koothrappali Haven't been used for awhile. Probably back for ex spatting at the wedding. 2. Arthur Jefferirs I think he was used just one time too many. His last episode was not needed 1. Stuart Really? Who thinks Stuart, who's been here since season 1 needs to go? Silly

    Shamy were dating much longer than Stunise before they got engaged. This being said, there are people who get engage after dating for less than a year, especially if they're in their thirties. Anyway, I don't think Sheldon's approval matters.
  28. 1 point
    Do you think Stuart will be the next one to get married after all then ? Shamy were engaged before they'd been shacked up a year. Stunise have similar interests, they've worked together, Sheldon approves of Denise, and Stuart isn't the jerk to women that Raj is.
  29. 1 point
    This sounds like the first classic unless it's being embellished Raj might just learn from this experience that he doesn't actually want to hop to marriages right away, and this way the next girl he dates he won't scare her away by planning their wedding since he learnt his lesson there (at least if they make up it looks like he'll have an arc with her before V-Day instead of the next plot we see of him being their wedding) Stuart finally not living with Howardette might be a bigger turning point than Sheldon moving out of Lenny's

    Anu finished with her boyfriend because he was a mooch and a drag. She'd paid for him to take training courses - if my memory serves me rightly they were writing and cookery. I assumed they weren't degree level but short ones of a few months Then he wanted her to sub him for midwifery, which unless he was a nurse would have meant her putting him through four or five years. Any man gainfully employed let alone already holding a doctorate would have seemed attractive after that chap,

    To clear some things up for everyone. Last year, when I took the tour, there is a small area on the back lot that has a small lagoon, a small structure, and a couple of older houses further down a dirt road. The interior of the structure has been used for the Paintball shed since the beginning of the show(it's bigger than how it appears in the show, but they can get the equipment into the other 2/3s of the shed. Note in the picture, what you can see is only about a third of the width of the shed. So, yes, the house probably has nothing to do with the episode, (if you continue on the dirt road here back a few hundred feet from this shed, the lagoon is to the left and the houses are further along, past the lagoon.) Also to the left, near the lagoon, was the restaurant from "True Blood") and the location has everything to do with paintball. If you all remember the charge of Leonard, Raj, and Howard, after Sheldon sacrifices himself in "The Skank Reflex Analysis", they guys are charging towards the lagoon, that's why it appears they are charging downhill.

    Yes I think the house could be an unintentional red herring (the house was in Pretty Little liars if anyone cares. Also Stuart’s girlfriend is posed with Leonard (both in fatigues) in an instagram story- so she and probably also Stuart are part of this.

    For all the funny voice researchers I've put a little edited excerpt mp3-file for you to listen (or download) online. https://www.dropbox.com/s/da39yk5h8wpejyg/cut.mp3?dl=0 That's what I heard. Penny: Aw, I take Leonard….all the time. (?) Penny: Ok, I prefer that. (?) Howard: [yes, I'm pretty sure it's Simon's voice!]: "Really? You're picking her over me? (OK) Penny: "Ya, 'cause she is vicious and can hide behind (?) a mushroom." (OK)

    So it seems that Penny is her teams leader, so it's safe to say that Sheldon is the other teams leader. Penny appears to not want Leonard on her team , which doesn't make sense. As if this is paintball we know Leonard has played it before. But there is no evidence that Bernadette has,so why pick her. I'm guessing Sheldon got to choose first and neither want Leonard. The last two will probably be Leonard and Amy and Sheldon will pick Amy. Leaving Penny stuck with Leonard as some sort of booby prize. He'll probably be the joke of the game and if Penny's team lose they'll make it Leonard's fault. But we'll have to wait and see. PS: I just listened to the audio I'm not sure but it sounds like Penny does pick Leonard. But there's too much background noise for to hear properly so it might be what Luminous said it was.

    I definitely think they are doing a competition. It sounded to me Penny wanted Leonard on the other team but ended up on hers. maybe she remembers Scavenger Vortex. The audio suggests to me the last two to be picked were Howard and Bernadette.

    You're upset about a callback to a favorite pastime for the original five, but now including Amy and Bernadette? I think this is perfect for the final season. What do you think they should they be doing instead?
