    I thought today’s episode was great because it was mostly a group episode, we got to see so many parents / siblings interactions, no petty fights, instead it celebrates friendship (beautiful Leonard / Sheldon scene and Howard got this amazing present to Sheldon), Sheldon wasn’t mean to anybody, and they found a beautiful way to incorporate science in a wedding episode - because of a line Amy said about Sheldon’s bow tie and then his mom mentioning something about imperfections (sweet scene with Mary in the groom room) he had this scientific breakthrough - he went to share that with Amy and she was blown away and they’ve both started working on it in the bride room , they had no board / papers so they were writing with lipstick on a mirror 🙈 Then Leonard came in and was like are you guys crazy , you’re stalling your own wedding... Then he saw the equations and was so blown away he joined them Then Penny saved the day (She also sassed and shushed Amy’s mom when she was being a bitch) Also they managed to incorporate a tribute to Stephen Hawking in the tag with the wedding theme... I just thought it was so flawless and so TBBT that they find ways to do that, make a big milestone episode like that but stay essentially them Ofc you might see it differently, feel there wasn’t enough Shamy or Lenny depending on your preferences, but for me it was a solid beautiful group episode Honestly I have a feeling it will be a longer episode ... Cause it’s the longest taping I’ve been to AND half of the scenes were pre-taped But also missy, Mary, Georgie and Amy’s parents didn’t have much screen time (whatever time they had was hilarious though ), it was mostly main cast

    Hey guys! I’m sure somebody will give you a full TR so just wanted to share my overall impressions and BTS I thought the episode was just perfect and for those of you who don’t like Shamy - I felt it was more like a tribute to TBBT overall than just them So many guest stars , it was so cool to see missy and Georgie and Mary, also the actor who plays Luke Skywalker officiated the wedding (not a SW fan here so I don’t know him . Also we saw Amy’s parents, Bert, Wil Wheaton and Kripke, maybe somebody else in forgetting Bill Prady, Molaro and Chuck Lorre all went out for the curtain call WB president was there too at some point We got to see Mayim walking in the wedding dress up close 2 times as she walked from one side of the set to another Saw Bri Cuoco up there too with her and Kaley’s dad There was a really sweet scene between Sheldon and Leonard, and Penny was amazing tonight The taping was long, 3,5 hours , even though there were so many pre-taped scenes (probably half) Oh and a couple got engaged tonight! It’s the second time I’ve heard of that happening during tapings and I’ve always wanted to see that , it was so cool!

    Here’s the long summary. If you prefer lots of surprises, obviously skip this. Plenty of stuff is missing and/or may be mixed up. Some things are hard to describe, like Dr. Wolcott’s oddities and Amy’s reactions/physical comedy, so you’ll just have to wait and see on those aspects. I’ll post my own opinions and try to answer any questions anyone has sometime later, since I don’t have time now. “The Reclusive Potential” Main cast in 4A: Sheldon receives a letter from Dr. Wolcott, a fellow scientist whose work he is interested in since it may be vital to his string theory research. Wolcott is someone the guys are all aware of, and he has a reputation for being very weird. Amy wants Leonard to keep an eye on Sheldon so that he doesn’t have to go alone to meet the creepy man in his secluded cabin in the forest, and she can’t do so herself due to her scheduled bachelorette party weekend. Penny (possibly Bernadette?) wants Wolowitz to go and keep an eye on Leonard. Raj assumes he’ll be asked to keep an eye on Howard and the ladies quickly agree since they know he’ll otherwise insist on coming to the bachelorette party. Sheldon and Amy in bed 4B: Sheldon is concerned about Amy and her upcoming party. She does think things might get a bit wild, since it is Penny who has planned it. He reminds Amy to use protection. She’s not sure exactly what it is that he thinks she’ll be doing. He just wants her to be careful, and if they’re outside, he knows how easily her skin burns in the sun. Amy hugs him and thinks it’s sweet that he’s worried. All 4 guys in Leonard’s car: There’s some more discussion of Dr. Wolcott. Then Wolowitz (or Raj?) jokes that it’s going to be a weird bachelor party. Leonard tells them that Sheldon insisted on not having a bachelor party, and Sheldon explains that the traditional hedonistic aspects of such parties do not appeal to him. The girls going into 4A: Penny and Bernadette guide a blindfolded Amy into 4A and reveal the apartment filled with quilting supplies/sewing machine and tea to drink. Amy tries to act pleased/excited. Though it’s kind of obvious that she isn’t, the girls don’t seem to notice. The guys at Dr. Wolcott’s cabin: Wolcott is a suspicious man who lives alone and is solely focused on his theories. He is constantly worried that someone will try to steal his work. After opening his numerous door locks and questioning the presence of the other 3 guys, he lets them in and collects their phones. He shows them some notebooks with his work, which are written backwards and have the letters and numbers inverted. Sheldon thinks the guy is great. The girls in 4A: Amy is sewing a quilt piece on the sewing machine while Bernadette and Penny are having tea on the couch. After a short while, Amy stands up and says ‘what the hell?’ She seems hurt and asks the girls if they really think that she is this boring. They decide to take her out to a bar so that she can have the wild night of poor decision making that she was expecting. Bernadette recommends body shots off of hot guys’ chests. Amy is enthused. The girls at the bar: Amy asks what body shots actually are. When Penny explains it’s like taking a shot out of a guy’s belly button, Amy finds the idea unappealing. Cut to 12 minutes later at the bar: Amy is passed out slumped over in her seat with her face smooshed against the bar. Bernadette wonders if they should carry her home already. Penny decides they should stay and finish their drinks and food. The guys at Dr. Wolcott’s cabin: They are all impressed with Wolcott’s work and the extent of his productivity. Once again, someone makes a comment about Sheldon’s odd bachelor party, and when the topic of marriage comes up, Dr. Wolcott explains that he is also married. The guys ask if she is there, if she is alive, and if she is visible to other people. He explains that she lives in Munich and they have a long distance relationship. They send birthday cards once a year and otherwise focus entirely on their work. He recommends cutting out all outside distractions to Sheldon if he wants to succeed at his work. Intrigued, Sheldon says he had never considered a long distance marriage. Wolcott suggests dinner, either rabbit or squirrel, and asks if they can tell the difference. He leaves to go hunting. Once he’s gone, Leonard asks/tells Sheldon that he’s not really considering any of that, right? Sheldon says no, he is not, and sounds a bit surprised at his own quick and certain answer. Howard says that it makes sense because Sheldon has friends, a fiancée, a full life. Sheldon agrees with Wolowitz and says he’s ready to go home. He misses Amy and sees no reason to further tempt himself with some strange man’s alluring math. (2nd take, he misses Amy and his phone). Also, he is from Texas and can definitely tell the difference between rabbit and squirrel. The girls back to 4A: Amy startles awake from where she is passed out on the couch. She guesses what must’ve happened and says that she is ‘so lame’ for passing out at her own bachelorette party. The girls claim that Amy did a bunch of wild stuff first, and make up some stories about it, one of which involves her Riverdancing on the bar countertop. Amy seems embarrassed, yet pleased, and she believes them even though she doesn’t think she knows how to Riverdance. Still embarrassed, she asks about pictures, and they assure her they wouldn’t do that to her. She says they are good friends. Cut to a slideshow of pictures: passed out Amy at the bar, in the car, and on the couch with Penny and Bernadette posing with her. Back at the cabin: Dr. Wolcott discovers the guys have left. Then he wonders if they were ever there at all. Then he wonders if they are actually on their way over now, and decides to tidy up. It’s a train of thought that matches with his multiple time dimensions theory. Tag, Sheldon and Amy in 4B: Hungover Amy is buttering her toast when Sheldon comes in. He walks over to say hello and kisses her cheek. She asks about his trip, and he tells her it was of great help for his work. Then he asks her if she will still love him if she finds out that he isn’t the work-obsessed, hyper-focused genius that she thought he was. She says that she will, then asks if he will still love her if she’s not the straight-laced, buttoned-down quilting woman that he thinks she is. What if she’s really a Riverdancing wild woman? He agrees that he will love her anyway. They share a kiss. Then Sheldon asks if she even knows how to Riverdance. Amy gets up, they exchange weird flirty looks, and she demonstrates her Riverdance. Looking very interested, Sheldon insists that she not do that for any other man, and Amy looks proud of herself. -I can’t remember if the 2 Shamy kisses in the tag were in the first take because I was laughing so much at Amy’s Riverdance. I know that what’s above is accurate for at least the second take.

    Sorry my brief summary turned into a bit of a novel. I will post it below. I was nice being at the 250 episode, There were quite a few VIPs. The Big Bang scholars were there and they will probably post pics later. I got moved down to sit with them as they had someone that couldn't attend. Put me in the second row right in front of 4a. Didn't get the green band to go on set though. Kaley had her Dad as usual and Karl plus his Mum and other family. Johnny got a bit emotional about the 250 episodes when they gave there talk to the audience. Lots of hugs all around when they finished. Everyone was talking to each other between takes “The Tenants Disassociation” Story by Steve Holland, Jeremy Howe and Trevor Alper Teleplay by Dave Goetsch, Eric Kaplan and Maria Ferrari A longer summary of tonight taping than I had planned. I am not good at remembering dialogue verbatim sorry. Two plots Sheldon/Leonard and the tenants association and Raj and Howard and a drone Cold open with everyone except Penny in 4a having Chinese. Penny comes in with a pastrami sandwich from a food truck parked outside the building. Banter about how everyone should eat Chinese food as it is Friday, Amy brings up how some Chinese name invented the sandwich and Sheldon is no it was the Earl of Sandwich and Penny is oh the food truck is the Pearl of Sandwich I just get it. Howard says that smells nice I am going down to get one, more argumentative banter and Bernadette is I am going to get one as well and lets not come back. Amy and Sheldon are discussing the Chinese inventing it and Penny, Raj and Leonard leave as well. Sheldon doesn’t want to discuss it anymore as he is eating, funny comments about discussing it later as he talks in his sleep. He look at his food wrapped in a ? some bread/pancake wrap and says to Amy maybe you are right and she notices there is no one left to hear it. This scene was shot multiple times with a few subtle changes in dialogue and a few quick pick-ups. Follow up scene in 4B with Sheldon looking out the window at the food truck and complaining about how nice it smells. He likes fat and salt as much as the next man. Some dialogue about having to control himself with a rigid plan. Amy say I will go down and ask them to move. He say why are you taking cash with you. The next two scenes were pre-recorded. Raj and Howard are in the hot tub in Howard’s back yard. Some funny dialogue about Raj borrowing Howards swim trunks and Howard not wanting them back. Howard goes to get out and notices something in the bushes. A crashed drone. They discuss if Howard can fix it. A later scene has them flying it and Bernadette coming out and saying have they tried to find out who it belongs to. They sheepishly say they have (but they haven’t). She suggests that they look at the video data card. Penny comes home and says the food truck is no longer there. Leonard says that is what happens to food truck they move. She is no someone complained about the food truck to the tenants association and it can no longer park there. Leonard is who would do… oh. Next scene outside in the hall. Penny and Leonard say to Sheldon did you complain to the tenants association and he is Yes. Penny says well I am going to send an email complaining about you which she does. Sheldon’s phone alerts and they are “Are you the tenants association” Yes. Wow you should use spellcheck changed later to Pastrami doesn’t have a Y in it. Can’t remember if this comes before or after but Raj, Howard and Bernadette are in the kitchen looking at some shaky footage of a lovely girl flying the drone when it goes blank. They play it back so Bernadette can look at it to see if she can see anything. Howard says that she is good at picking up continuity issues in films which is not annoying at all. She spots a badge from the comic book store. Raj wants Howard to zoom in so he can get a closer look. Howard bring the tablet up close to Rajs face and he is I know you did that to be annoying but it helps. Penny and Leonard are confronting Sheldon in 4B about the tenants association and who made him President. He says he called a meeting, he was the only one who attended and he voted himself in. Amy comes in and says why didn’t you tell me. He says I wanted you to love the man not the position or something similar. Penny and Leonard want to hold a meeting to vote him out. The read the minutes brief Sheldon had a meeting in the shower adjourned after he got shampoo in his eye. Penny and Leonard vote a motion of no confidence but Amy doesn’t want to vote to annoy her fiancé, her best friend or Leonard who gave her a battery to replace her with no strings attached. Sheldon wins when he says she can join him next time he has a meeting in the shower. The shot this scene a few times with a few muck ups and some minor re-writes. You then see Amy coming over to 4A to apologise but says she can’t go against Sheldon over something so minor as a sandwich. But all they need is someone else from the building to vote against him and they did not get the idea from her. In fact Sheldon though she had to go back to the market so she is taking things from their fridge. Three pre-recorded scenes with Leonard and Penny going to the other tenants asking them to vote for him not Sheldon. One is a man they introduce themselves to. He says we have meet when I moved in, they are like yes a few months ago he is no two years and I invited you to my house-warming and got a lot of food in. The next says he can’t vote against Sheldon as Sheldon has got a restraining order against him for locking Sheldon on the roof three times. The next is Mrs Petrescu who they have a funny mis-understood conversation with due to her poor English. Back to 4B where Sheldon is making posters . One saying the only people this tall can use the washing machine and he is going to put it up high so Leonard cant wash is clothes and people won’t vote for someone who smells when they have a non- smelling alternative. Amy says she is a neuroscientist and have a lunatic for finance reflects badly on her. Raj and Howard are at the comic book store having Stuart look at the drone footage. Stuart is yes I know her and not every female who stops coming to the store is because of him. Howard is but she did and Stuart is yes all I tried to do was change my smile (They filmed this a few time with Stuart doing various smiles) the final take had Howard saying that was ghoulish. They ask if Stuart has her contact details and while he goes to look Raj asks/begs Howard to let him take the drone back to her. Sheldon and Amy are having a meal when Leonard and Penny come in. They have found out that when the swapped apartments Amy took over Penny’s lease and Sheldon was taken off 4A and Penny added, but Sheldon was not added to 4B so he is not a tenant and so cannot be on the tenants committee. Amy is I don’t know how they found out that information(she told them) but that is what has to happen. Sheldon is as much as I like a legal technicality this doesn’t work as California has a law that if you live somewhere for 30 days you are a tenant. Amy is I vote for Leonard. Sheldon is how could you, u she is you can’t handle the minimal power. He is well now I am not President I can be a critic and bring up points etc. She says you will be good at that. Leonard is What have I done. Pre-recorded Raj drops off the drone at the attractive owners place and gets her phone number. Contacts her straight away. Howard is I can’t believe you got her number. Tag is her watching footage from the drone of Raj and Howard flying it. Raj is making inappropriate comments about dating her and she closes her laptop.

    So here goes a TR, I def don’t have the insane memory some of the people on here have , so ofc some details are missing (also some jokes I do remember but skipping them otherwise it would get unbearably long and I just can’t type that much x D). I did remember way more though than I expected to. The pink eye storyline is the vaguest in my mind, probably cause all of those scenes were pretaped due to them needing make up for that, so we only saw them once. Also English is not my native language, so I’m gonna avoid citation rules completely sorry Cold open is 4B. Sheldon’s on the phone arguing with his mom, Amy walks in a second before they finish talking. Sheldon is very annoyed and asks rhetorically guess who my mom insists attends our wedding... Amy sarcastically asks if it’s Jesus. Sheldon says he wishes, instead she’s insisting he invites his brother. Amy’s surprised he hasn’t invited him in the first place. They talk a little more about it but I don’t remember the details Second scene is Bernadette’s apartment, Amy, Penny and Bernadette are in the living room . Amy is giving the girls some kind of pre-wedding gifts?, something nice from her and Purell x D and something else ridiculous from Sheldon. She tells the girls about the whole Georgie drama, that Mary’s threatening not to come if Georgie isn’t gonna be there. Penny and Bernadette joke that with the drama now it sounds like a real wedding Then Howard shows up and asks how would you know somebody has a pink eye. Bernie describes the symptoms and he says ok, so both of our kids have pink eye. Then he’s trying to get downstairs (he was in the stairs coming from the second floor) and Amy’s saying what are you doing, I have a wedding in a week. Howard’s still trying to get downstairs so Penny jumps across the sofa (idk how to describe it haha) and blocks his way, it was so funny. She or Bernie tell Howard to go take a shower and burn the clothes he’s wearing (or better all of his clothes , Penny says). It was so funny, Kaley cracked up and they had to do another take 4A Leonard and Raj are playing some video games and chat and Raj says he doesn’t wanna be the only single person at the wedding. Leonard says he’s not gonna be, there’s Stuart and Amy’s great aunt. Although he better hurry up cause Stuart’s already friended her on Facebook. Raj thinks maybe he could invite the girl who waxes him, he keeps no secrets from her after all. Leonard makes a joke that’s not something to brag about (not in these exact words). Sheldon comes in frustrated and asks Leonard isn’t Leonard’s brother the worst. Leonard says not really , but it’s not a fair competition cause there’s always his mom (different line in the third take). Then Raj mentions his brother ?Adut?, they used to fight but now they’re like best of friends. Leonard says how come you’ve never mentioned him. Raj says sure I have, he’s the one who left the door open when we were kids and my pet mangust got out. Then he gets mad and says ‘stupid Adut!’ Either after or in the middle is this scene Sheldon mentions he’s been trying to call his brother but he doesn’t wanna talk to him. The guys ask how can he be sure. He calls his brother and puts it on speaker and the voicemail says if it’s Sheldon calling, stop calling. They wonder what else could he do then to get Georgie to come to the wedding... Cut to Sheldon and Leonard on a plane and Leonard questioning how did he end up here if he kept saying no haha The rest I’m gonna describe out of order cause it’s easier. Raj storyline At some point Raj and Bernie are talking and he wonders why is it so hard to find a date. He wishes there was a service that’d let you pay and get a company... so basically an escort, Bernadette says. Raj says no no, not for sex (although if it goes well it could lead to sex), but just for human company. Bernadette says gotcha... so an escort. Raj says stop saying escort! She says she will when he stops meaning it. Then at some point in another scene he mentions to Bernie he got a date. Not for the wedding, but a regular date. But if it goes well, for Shamy’s wedding as well. And if it goes really well, for his wedding. At some other scene he says the date fell short. Bernie says how come and the camera cuts to him and we see he’s got pink eye. But then in the tag he meets a girl at a pharmacy who also has pink eye and he asks her to go to the wedding with him Pink eye storyline First we see Howard get pink eye and at some point he mentions Raj probably shouldn’t have borrowed his VR glasses the other day... Then also Bernie gets it and then Amy. At some point there’s a scene where penny’s Skyping with Bernie I think ? in 4A, Amy comes in , freaks out that if Sheldon finds out he’s gonna cancel the wedding. Somebody makes a joke that they could tell him the wedding theme is the Walking Dead and it’s just make up and they all agree he’d probably buy it Amy has touched Penny’s laptop while talking to Bernadette, Penny was like could you not touch it but Amy was mad i think and didn’t care. After she leaves, Penny purells the laptop and says oh look, purell did come In handy after all! It was so funny Throughout the episode we find out they’re all kinda mad at Penny she’s the only one who wasn’t infected Next to last scene of that storyline they all go to a clinic and wait for Bernie (she took the kids in) to find out if it’s bacterial or not. It is, so they’re happy, it’s gonna be gone before the wedding Last scene is Amy Skyping with Sheldon and she only shows half of her face so that he can only see the eye that wasn’t infected. Some funny talk between them (btw I was wrong , so we have 2 Shamy scenes). She suggests since he made up with his brother maybe he and Leonard should stay in Texas for ... (reads the instruction on the bottle of her medicine) next 2-3 days Honestly it sounds a bit stupid when you describe it like that haha but it wasn’t a bad storyline, just not my favorite cause I personally don’t like it when they mention sicknesses like that that are kinda visual... and esp when they show it. It was quite graphic x D Georgie storyline Sheldon and Leonard are in Texas and go to the tire store Georgie owns. It’s called Dr Tire. Sheldon freaks out of course and says the only doctor there is him. Leonard says um I have a Phd also. Sheldon says do you wanna wait in the car?! Georgie comes out and Sheldon says hello Georgie and he says he goes by ‘George’ now. Sheldon says it doesn’t work for him. Leonard introduces himself, they shake hands. Georgie says they haven’t talked in over 10 years, but of course, once Sheldon needs something from him he’s there. Some overused but funny jokes about Sheldon not getting sarcasm. Next scene is in Georgie’s office, he says so let me get this straight, you weren’t gonna invite me to the wedding, but then mom said she wouldn’t go, so now you want me to be there. Sheldon says I know you don’t hear this often, but you’re exactly right. Leonard says ‘not helping Sheldon’. Georgie says in a sugar coated voice well, if you wanted me there, all you had to do was ask nicely. So Sheldon does that (doesn’t come easy for him x D ) and Georgie replies he’d rather swallow a pregnant cat and lets all her litter come out of him x D than be at his wedding (different line in the first 2 takes about swallowing a snake, but I think they’ll go with this one cause this was way funnier). Sheldon says wow I see why you got into tires , cause you are tiresome! Leonard says let’s go and pulls him out. As they’re walking out Sheldon asks if that was too rude... Leonard says not to rude... and not too good. In the hotel room Sheldon’s on the phone with his mom. He’s trying to tell her how it went but we get the idea she shuts him up cause we just see him sit down and get sad and say ‘yes mam.... yes mam... yes mam’ (basically the same replies as when he was speaking to her in the cold open). Leonard asks what that’s about and Sheldon says his mom is not getting in the middle of it, she says they should work it out between them. Leonard asks why Sheldon doesn’t want Georgie there in the first place... Sheldon says it’s cause he was a bully and mentions that Halloween story I’ve mentioned in one of the previous posts. Leonard says let me go talk to him... At some point in that scene he mentions he knows what it feels like to live with a bully, Sheldon asks your brother bullied you too? He says no, he meant Penny Leonard walks in Georgie’s office, Georgie’s on the phone on a business call. Can’t really repeat the conversation , they talk a bit about his work . Then Georgie says look if it’s about Sheldon, there’s nothing you can do. Leonard says but he’s your brother! Georgie says they have nothing in common. Leonard says that’s not true, you’re both tall, you’re both brothers... I don’t know why I started it like it was a list. Georgie says a line that I can’t remember, Maybe that Leonard’s completely wrong? And Leonard says hey! That’s a really Sheldon thing to say Then they kinda bond and talk, Georgie says you know how I got to open my first tire store ? I had to bust my ass off, cause all of the extra money we’ve got were always spent on Sheldon. Sheldon’s college tuition, him going to study in Germany... (probably there was some more) And how does it feel after all of that to still know he’s mom’s favorite kid? Leonard says if it helps, he’s my mom’s favorite too Then Georgie offers him a beer, Leonard says sure but could you open it for me? Georgie says it’s (that kind of beer that opens easily, forgot the word... ). Leonard says ‘I know’. Georgie looks at him weirdly haha and opens it, it was one of the funniest scenes. Leonard says I’m sure Sheldon wasn’t the easier brother to grow up with, but look, you haven’t exactly been super nice to him either... what about that time on Halloween when you stole his costume? Georgie says ‘but he was gonna dress like a girl scientist!’ Leonard says madam Curie? Georgie says thinkingly ‘I didn’t know she was a madam!...’ Point is Georgie says he was gonna get beaten up for that, I did it to protect him. Then Leonard wonders what about the time you used to sit on his head when he tried to watch Star Trek? Georgie said well that was just funny. Leonard agrees. Georgie says he did a lot for Sheldon, he protected him, drove him around, apologized to people for him... I’m sure you’ve had to do all of that too and Leonard says yes he does all that, he can relate Maybe there was a bit more I really loved that scene Next scene is hotel room, some funny moments with Sheldon calling room service but he doesn’t wanna order anything, he wants to correct their spelling in the menu. Leonard walks in with Georgie and says Sheldon, I think you gotta apologize to your brother... Sheldon is like ‘wtf’ and looks at Leonard and says ‘I’m sorry?!!’ Leonard says good , just like that , but more sincere and in that direction (points to Georgie). Georgie says forget it, it’s a bad idea, it’s like patching a tire.. and actually maybe not the best example cause one should never try to patch a tire, always get a new one Then Sheldon and Georgie kinda started accusing each other standing opposite each other on different sides of the room , and Leonard between them, and Leonard says good start , let all those feelings out, they both simultaneously turn to him and tell him to shut up, at that moment they do look like brothers and actually having way more in common then they think. So Leonard steps aside and they talk. Georgie says I’m sorry life hasn’t been easy for you, but it hasn’t been easy for the rest of us either. Do you think it was easy for us when dad died and you went away to college ? Mom was a mess. Sheldon says how can this be true, I’ve talked to mom all the time and she seemed fine ! And what about missy. Georgie says well it’s because she was trying to protect you! And missy was a stupid teenager, I’ve had to take care of both of them. Sheldon says then why you haven’t said anything, Georgie said that’s cause I was trying to protect you too, you’re my baby brother. Sheldon is a bit taken aback Actually a really powerful emotional scene. There was complete silence in the audience during Georgie’s speech) Then Sheldon genuinely says I’m sorry... And it would mean a lot to me to have my big brother with me at the wedding. Georgie says he wouldn’t miss it. Then he puts his hand on Sheldon’s shoulder, Sheldon instead of hugging him pats his hand... After like a minute of complete silence the audience finally laughed) Cut to Leonard who’s tearing up and says ‘am I crazy or does it feel like we just patched a tire?’ Then a little comedy moment with Sheldon looking at him judgementaly and saying come on Leonard, weren’t you listening, he JUST said one should never patch a tire I think that’s it : )

    Hey all. Heres my TR of tonights episode, sorry for the length. Mods please move elsewhere if this isnt the right place for it. The Athenaeum Allocation Cold open takes place in 4A where Lenny and Raj are skyping with Howardette, who are in their nursery. There’s banter back and forth about how things are with two babies in the house now. Raj makes a comment about how seeing Howardette’s growing family has his biological clock ticking. Shamy walk in together and Amy announces they made “Save the date” cards. Their wedding date is May 12th. Someone asked if they picked a venue and Amy responds it took 9 months to set the date and they havent picked the venue. Amy is pretty excited though about her cards that have MRIs of Shamy’s brains kissing one another at the top of it. Two brains with fake lips facing each other and kissing is plainly visible on the cards as she shows them around. The next scene was pretaped. Howardette are in the nursery and each are saying sweet things to each baby individually. They would swap cribs in a tag-team style while they talk to the babies and are being pretty cute parents. Howard makes a comment that one of the babies laughs in in his sleep and that Bernie doesnt even laugh at his jokes when shes awake. Bernie smiles and says “I love you, but I love them more”. Next scene is in 4b. Shamy are washing dishes after dinner. Sheldon makes some comments about liking the wedding date a lot because it reminds him of a math equation (JP stumbles through the joke a few times. Its a mouthful. Something about the month squared is a prime number—I forgot the rest). Amy responds with her own Shakespeare quote about love and then says something like “or it can be about a math equation”. Amy suggests they need to settle on a venue for the wedding and brings up the CalTech venue Athenaeum and says it would be perfect. Sheldon likes the idea but says the venue is part of exclusive club membership thats been impossible to be a member of because Leonard has been trying to get them into it for a couple of years without succcess. Amy looks confused and said she had already spoken to the club and they were excited to give her a tour of the venue He points out that Einstein was a member there. He also says there is a Chinese restaurant nearby that might work as a venue and Einstein ate there. Amy isnt a fan of that suggestion and says they should choose a venue they like, not because someone ate there. Sheldon looks disappointed and says “Reality shows are right, brides are crazy...In any case, Sheldon is excited and agrees to tour the place. Amy comments “its beautiful”. Sheldon responds by pointingbout again that “Einstein was a member”. Amy says “Its close”. Sheldon yet again responds “Einstein was a member” as his excitement grows. Amy then gives him a dry “and Einstein was a member”. Sheldon is pleased and says “Now youre sounding like a woman who wants to get married!” Next scene is Howardette’s kitchen. Howard and Raj are at the table and Howard is fretting about the new baby and how he should stay home to care for the children while Bernie goes back to work. Howard tells Raj that raising two children is tiring but rewarding and Raj replies “like Pilates!”. Howard wants to stay home but concedes Bernie is a better parent but makes more money, therefore he should be the one to stay home. Raj is proud of Howard and said he couldnt push the gender role stereotype like that. Howard looks at Raj and asks “Arent you the one who saw Taylor Swift twice this year?”. Raj responds “Because she’s hot, not because she sings my truth”.... Next scene is pretaped. Shamy are touring the CalTech club site and are excited initially. Its a large room and several tables are set up with people having lunch. The decor is pretty lavish with pretentious paintings of what appears to be famous past members of the club. Amy remarks how beautiful it is and Sheldon agrees. He makes a comment that the somberness of the paintings strikes the perfect note for the wedding ceremony. He gushes about Einstein eating there and having his own reserved chair. He also mentions Stephen Hawking ate there too but he brought his own chair....Amy suddenly spots Lenny dining and points them out to Sheldon asking why they are here. Shamy looked confused and Amy makes a comment about her fun day was about to be spoiled as they both confront Lenny at their table. Lenny are casual and say “hey” and ask what they are there for. They explain they are considering the club as their wedding venue and Sheldon wants to know how they are eating there. Penny says that Leonard is a member and Sheldon reacts by saying how is it possible since Leonard always said it was too exclusive?! Leonard, in between bites and not concerned, simply stated “I lied”. Penny turns to Leonard and said he told her it was exclusive too! Theres a brief conversation, I think Leonard basically wanted a place to eat without Sheldon pestering him. Sheldon cant believe Leonard is a member at which point Amy tells Sheldon not to turn around. Sheldon of course turns around in time to see Barry Kripke walk up with a loud “Cooper!”. Scene ends... Next scene is Howardette kitchen. Its 8 am and bernie is pouring a cup of coffee in her nightgown. Howard walks in pushing two strollers and Bernie asks where he has been with the babies. Howard brags that he took them to the park and farmers market ending with a trip to Chinatown so that they could be exposed to other cultures. He in turn asks what Bernie did while he was away—she says its 8am and what did you think, I was sleeping. Howard suggests that one of them should stay home to raise the babies and Betnie reacts by saying why should she have to give up her career and all the hard work she put into being successful? Howard suggests that HE, not Bernie, should be the one to stay home. Bernie counters, asking why SHE should have to give up her quality time with the babies just to go to work? Bernie tells Howard she knows what hes doing, trying to look like the better parent than her, but suggests he cant keep that pace up and would pass put on the couch and then she wpuld have three babies to care for...They discuss the need for one to stay home and Bernie isnt sure which way she falls on it. Howard points out that Bernie makes more money and it was sexist of her to suggest he couldnt stay home and be a good parent just because he was a man. Next scene begins with Shamy climbing the stairwell together as they head to 4b. They are clearly upset at what transpired at the club. Sheldon cant believe Leonard lied to him about the club and membership. He wonders if Leonard lied about being lactose intolerant and was instead a friend with an invisible trumpet player. As they enter 4b Amy tells Sheldon they need to settle on the venue after which they would have all their lives to complain about Leonard. She wants to choose the club, it’s perfect. Sheldon though is turned off on it now that Leonard lied to him. He does say, though, that holding their wedding in the same place where Leonard betrayed him has a certain symmetry to it that is pleasing and he could rub Leonard’s nose in it. There were two takes on Amys response—in the first she replies “ pkaybbut only after the first dance” and the other take had her saying “ that’ll be your first petty act as a married man”. Amy dials up the club but learns that the club venue is booked for May 12. Amy is disappointed and Sheldon wonders aloud who could have booked it—flash to a pretaped scene in Kripke’s office where Sheldon is confronting Barry who evidently booked the room for his birthday party. Barry LOVES that Sheldon’s wedding is ruined and basically tells Sheldon it’s not his problem...Scene ends with Sheldon saying he has a problem. Next scene is in 4b where Shamy are discussing Kripke’s involvement in the club dilemma. Sheldon suggests they choose another wedding date but Amy counters, saying it took 9 months to pick that date and she would pick a new husband before picking another day. Leonard walks in to offer an apology to Sheldon and Sheldon demands to know why he lied. Leonard said it started as a joke that was funny, and the more time passed the funnier it got. Amy says thats not much of an apology and Sheldon tells Leonard he should leave before he said something he would later regret. Sheldon tells Leonard his science work was some insulting things and lastly was “subpar”. Leonard smiles and says those words were the nicest things Sheldon has said about his work. Sheldon replies “and now Im regretting them” and slams the door... Next scenes are pretaped. Theres a short one where Penny meets Bernie at her office for lunch and Bernie knteracts eith some coworkers. It doesnt take long for Bernie to realize she missed work. The next pretaped scene has Kripke in a biohazard suit scrubbing the inside of a large barrel in a lab. Kripke explains to Leonard, who comes in and asks what hes doing, that hes scrubbing irradiated grease from the barrels. Leonard asks why Barry couldnt get an intern to do it but Kripke explains he was told under no uncertain terms that he couldnt abuse interns. Leonard begs Kripke to reconsider changing his club reservations for Sheldon because hes a “good guy”. Leonard asks what he could do to change Kripke’s mind, at which time the scene shifts to he and Sheldon both in biohazard suits scrubbing the barrels. Leonard remarks Kripke is a jerk. Next scene is Howardette kitchen. A sleepy Howard walks in with Raj sitting at the table. Howard remarks that he passed out on the couch and that he cant do the stay at home thing. Raj had helped with the babies while Howard was sacked out, and he tries to comfort Howard saying that parenting is hard and he saw and smelled things he never wants to see again after today. He tells Howard “all they drink is milk, just where do all those colors come from??”. Howard says its almost 6pm and Bernie would be home soon so they had to act fast and that he should get the babies ready while Howard makes dinner. Raj points out that the babies are asleep, so Howard tells Raj that HE could make the dinner then.... Next scene is in 4b. Amy is on the laptop when Sheldon and Leonard walk in with grins. They tell Amy they got the club venue back and Amy is excited and gives Sheldon a hug. Sheldon explains that he and Leonard were like Batman and Robin! Leonard asks why he has to be Robin, and Sheldon says if youbhave to ask then this makes you Robin...Amy wants to know why Kripke caved. Sheldon explains that they had to invite Kripke to the wedding. Amy says thats fair. Sheldon continues, saying Barry gets to bring a date. Amy says thats fine. Sheldon then tells her if Barry’s date charges by the hour then they have to cover the cost...Amy is upset. Amy asks if there is anything else and Leonard starts by saying “You know how Barry has the voice of an angel?” but Amy cuts him off, saying theres no way he is singing at her wedding! Sheldon says he only wants to sing “Volare’ “ at which time it dawns on Leonard that thhis was what Barry was saying but he couldnt understand through the lisp....anyway, Sheldon tells Amy if she didnt like that song she would definitely not like Kripke’s cake suggestion. Any is done with the Kripke talk and said they arent gonna let Kripke win and that should just find a different venue. She suggests the Japanese Tea Garden or the Planetarium. Sheldon loves the Planetarium suggestion and said its even better than the club. Leonard looks annoyed and said hold on, I just scrubbed sludge for you and I might be radioactive! There were a couple takes on Sheldon’s response—one was “its only a problem if you want children” and another response was “youre just exagerrating (turns to Amy and whispers dont let him touch the silverware). The tag takes place in Howardette kitchen with Howardette seated at the table. They both admit to eachbother how difficult the two babies are and both admit to napping. Bernie says theyll figure it out and they exchange I Love Yous...Howard says that everyone else is asleep and suggestively says they should go upstairs. Bernie smirks and says nah lets just do it right here and pushes some dishes on the table aside. Howard smiles, and they both lay their heads down to nap. The end. Sorry for how long this got, hope you all enjoy it!

    Short summary: ”The Reclusive Potential” Penny and Bernadette surprise Amy with a quilting bee bachelorette party, complete with tea to drink. When they discover it’s not the wild night of poor decision making that Amy had wanted, they take her to a bar. The guys accompany Sheldon to visit Dr. Walcott, an unusual, reclusive man who lives in a cabin in the woods. Alone, hyper-focused on his work, and kinda crazy, he has done some work that will help Sheldon in his string theory efforts. Not a bachelor party in any typical sense (Sheldon didn’t want one), meeting Dr. Wolcott nevertheless provides one last look at a life Sheldon might’ve once thought ideal. This is a funny and sweet episode, IMO, and I don’t think the short summary really conveys that, so I’ll try to write out something better tomorrow.

    At some point in the groom room they were talking and Leonard said ‘I’m happy for you... now you are officially and legally Amy’s problem’ and Sheldon says ‘aww Leonard.... I’m always gonna be your problem’ And Leonard hugs Sheldon and Sheldon doesn’t mind thought some of you guys might dislike that line, but for me it was one of my favorite scenes

    Allrighty, I'll give you everything I remember. First of all, I apologize for the bad english, I'm French and I came to LA for the taping of TBBT. I only came back today so that explain why I wasn't able to do that sooner. I'll try to give what I remember although I have forgotten.. I do not certify that everything is accurate or in the right order. The two first scene were shot the monday so they just show us the scene on screen. The first scene is Bernadette and Howard in bed, Bernadette is due but she is worried not giving birth. She's trying to get off the bed and she's saying that she wants to go the hospital. Howard points out that she's is not ready (not having contractions I recall) so she has to wait. She confess she is kinda pissed off by the pregnancy so she wants to give birth asap. So basically they stumble on the fact that making love could accelerate the process of giving birth and the scene ends with Howard being happy and cuddling to Berny. The second scene happens in the cafeteria, I don't recall much apart that Howard tells that he's having a bad time with Berny because she's upset and want to give birth. But also he brags that he managed to make love twice yesterday. The next scene was shot live. Amy is in the lab with Howard. He is working on a device or a report (?) and I recall he saying he has nothing to show except for a drawing he got from Return from the Future (but I'm not sure of that). Although I'm pretty sure he was shaking his hands and the paper he was showing was shivering, I wonder if we will see that on the episode. Anyway, at some point, Amy brings along that his son name is Michael, named after Bernadette father. Howard is then astonished because he doesn't know about that and he is pissed that Berny has chosen a name without consulting him. Afterwards (this scene was not taped live) , there is a yoga scene in Berny living room where Penny is showing her stomach and doing the pose. And Berny is kinda jealous of thhe flat belly of Penny so she asked her to put a hoodie. Then we have a bunch of scenes (not taped live) where everyones wants to comfort Berny. We have Raj on the couch of hey living room doing her a foot massage and saying that her ankles are weird. But he just back off and says that they are fine. They another scene where Leonard is on the couch and he's looking at her ankles and says "your ankles are not so ugly as Raj described to me!". Finally Sheldon comes and he brings the most complex board game ever about the world war 2 campaign in Africa. Then the scene was taped in front of us: Sheldon has a huge map on the floor of the living room and Bernadette comes and says "what's that?". Sheldon replies "you are looking over the next 100 to 150 hours of fun about the lesser known world war 2 compaign in Africa". She says that she doesn't want to play. Anyway, Sheldon wants to roll the dices for the weather and Berny says "it's Africa, isn't it be hot?". Sheldon makes a puzzling face and says "wait" with his finger. Then roll the dice, look to a paper sheet, roll the dice again and look again on the paper sheet and says "Yes" ! (Big laugh in the audience). Then Howard storms in with Leonard I recall and says "you picked our son's name without me??" and Bernadette says "Don't you see I'm in the middle of the game?". Sheldon says something like "ho no you're not in the middle, we barely started, you'll have too wait XX hours to be in the middle". Next scene, it's Howard and Bernadette in the kitchen, Howard goes in quick and says "Bernie?" and she says "I'm going as fast as I can". Then they sit and she explains that she wants to name it after her father. But he do not agree. So he says another name I believe and she says "that one of my ex boyfriend". He says then "why not Al or Melvin or XX [bunch of names]" and she says "same answers..". Finally I think they agree on not naming it Michael and wait. But I'm not sure. After they are all in the living room, where this photos was taken : Sheldon suggest an awful name like "shoubinonda" or something odd like that. They're suggesting names. I don't know if it's right now but Amy suggest Elliot and Leonard said that it's his baby name. Amy says that she wants it and Leonard says "you can't call dibbs on a name" and she says "yes Leonard, that's exactly like that, I call Dibbs on Elliott". Then Penny asked when he picked up a name and he reply "do you remember when you moved in? ... Well a non creepy amount of time after that" (that was really funny lol). I don't recall much apart that Bernie goes into labour and he takes the car to drive her. The others stays to watch of Halley. Then we have a scene where they are in the car (actually sitting of two chairs with a fake wheeldrive wtf?). And Bernie is sorry I think. She says something like "I'm sorry I date all guys with good names". Then it's a scene where they discussed names. I think the thing with Amy and the dibbs happened here. Raj comes in and says he almost named his dog Samantha but named it Cinnamon because he was eating Cinnamon. He actually asks why and Penny says nothing with a face like "Gosh you were eating cinnamon". Another take where Penny says "you already told us that like every year at your birthday". I think they'll keep the second one. The last scene (not tpaed live), they are all sleeping and they wake up (maybe the telephone ringing). So Raj is on the phone and we see Howard and the baby is born and alive. They ask about the name. And I'm taking extra precaution here, but I do recall that Howard said that the baby will be named Neil because of the astronauts etc. And that the second name will be Michael after Bernie's dad but we hear in the back room bernie screeming "But we are calling him Michael!" , and I think that's the end! I'm going to bed, I'm exhausted (just flew 14 hours too get back from the United States). Don't hesitate to post any questions below if any. I'll try to give more details and impressions tomorrow if possible.

    Hey guys , so since nobody’s doing a full TR (yet?) I’ll just post a timeline, I hope that helps to put it all together 😄 4A - group scene, they’re figuring out who’s gonna pick up who at the airport cause there’s a lot of work to do. Penny’s in charge. Some cool metaphors about how they’re like the avengers/ like lord of the rings. Amy mentions some demon from LOTD and makes an allegory it’s her mother. A cute small Shamy moment 4B - Amy’s on the phone with Wil Weaton who’s gonna officiate, some talk / jokes about a ST actor officiating their wedding. Sheldon’s freaking out he can’t make his bow tie absolutely symmetrical. Amy says that maybe he doesn’t need to, sometimes there’s beauty in symmetry. Short but really sweet Shamy scene Raj is picking up Mary and Missy. Some typical Mary racist-or-not-depends-on-how-you-look-at-it Indian remarks ; ) We find out Missy’s pregnant and separating from her husband Penny picking up Amy’s parents. She’s not having a good time 😂 4A - Amy meets Georgie and loves his accent... Trying to make Sheldon use the accent too but he doesn’t get why and doesn’t want to 😂 Then she meets missy, Sheldon says if I need a kidney - you know where to look for it... Says I love you too Shelly. Then Penny enters with amy’s parents, she’s completely exhausted 4A - Amy’s parents are having dinner with the gang... Amy’s mom finds out about FWF. She says ‘Amy.... you put your videos on the internet... You know what men do with those videos!’ Missy and Georgie think their mom’s not gonna be the weirdest mom at the wedding. Amy’s mom is so ridiculous Penny doesn’t even have to say anything to Leonard standing behind her, she just raises her glass and he gets it she needs more wine to be able to deal with this. Hilarious scene The rest is a bit out of order Howard finding the dog, hearing the knock on the door, seeing the owner is Mark Hamill... hilarious scene with his reaction. Comic book store Stuart scene that I’ve described before The wedding venue scene when Raj and others see mike Hamill, they freak out like Howard before. Wil / Mark where Wil is pissed Sheldon and Leonard scene in the groom’s room with the hug Sheldon and Mary in the groom room , a very sweet scene... Then she says something and he has an epiphany and runs to talk to Amy The girls in the bride’s room... Amy says it’s weird, but she’s not nervous at all. Then her mom knocks and she says and that’s gone now. A scene with the two of them Sheldon runs to see Amy and they start doing science together ; ) The guests are wondering what’s taking so long so Leonard goes to check on Shamy and ends up joining them The guests freak out more , in particularly Amy’s mom, says this was all a mistake, she knew ‘this Sheldon’ would hurt her daughter and stands up to go take Amy and leave... Penny says ‘hey! You sit down . Sheldon loves Amy and would never do anything on purpose to hurt her’ . Then she sasses Mary too when she stood up and tried to applaud Penny for shutting down amy’s mom. Funny moment with Amy’s dad Penny goes to check on Shamy. Sheldon says Penny you’re right... We’ll have all of our lives to do science together. Let’s get married Amy’s walking down the aisle, 95% sure it was her dad by her side The wedding itself - they exchange vows. A Really beautiful special moment... Mark Hamill finds it touching and starts crying ; ) The tag - Stephen Hawking’s present

    To those who asked, I did have a great time at this taping, thank you. My opinion is no doubt highly colored by seeing it live, but I think it’s my favorite episode of this season. It was a very friendship-focused episode, imo, and it was especially nice to have some scenes for the girls again. Both Penny and Bernadette were excellent friends to Amy, particularly Penny who planned things. The quilting party was Penny’s idea, and came from her thinking about what she thought Amy would love. When it turned out that Amy’s expectations were different, she and Bernadette shifted gears and made it happen. Specifically, I think that what Amy wanted was the experience of feeling like she had a wild night, kind of like early seasons Amy, who didn’t want to miss out on things. But I’m not so sure that Amy truly wanted to do some of those things, you know? So her friends lying about the evening was kind of ideal. Amy got to feel like she had a wild night without actually having to do anything that would’ve made her uncomfortable. I think it was a good friendship episode for the guys too, having each others’ backs to go meet the crazy physicist in the woods. It wasn’t a bachelor party per se, but if you think of the spirit of a bachelor party, I think this seems appropriate for Sheldon. His bachelor days weren’t filled with drinking, partying, and women; his bachelor days were filled with the delusion that he was fine on his own and with his aspirations of a life solely focused on work. One last look at that makes a lot more sense than a traditional party. I’m not someone who likes everything that the writers do, but I have to give them credit here because I thought it was a clever way of doing a ‘bachelor party’ for Sheldon.

    The discussion thread is open again. Please stop the petty squabbling. Arguing over which characters "TPTB" care about, or don't, is a tedious debate which only ever leads to back and forth attacks. Nobody can "win" such a debate, but those who play that game end up trying desperately not to lose. Stop it.

    Hey guys !! I was at the episode 2 main storylines : Sheldon’s mom insists he invites Georgie to the wedding otherwise she’s not coming either, Sheldon tries to call him but Georgie doesn’t wanna talk to him so he and Leonard go to Texas to invite Georgie in person Howard & Bernadette’s kids get pink eye and it’s 1 week till the wedding so Amy’s worried about getting pink eye as well. Despite everybody (except for Sheldon and Leonard cause they’re in Texas ) trying to avoid Howard, they all get pink eye (and they’re a little mad at Penny she doesn’t ). In the end they find out it’s bacterial and not the other one so it’s gonna be gone till the wedding) And another mini-storyline - Raj is trying to get a date for the wedding cause he doesn’t wanna be the only single guy there If nobody writes a TR soon I’ll try to post more later (prob tmw though cause I’m busy :/ )

    Btw just 1 Shamy scene (nothing romantic) and 0 Lenny I think in this episode Sheldon keeps mentioning (to Amy and to Leonard/Raj) that Georgie was a horrible bully, that’s why. which we later find out from Georgie and Leonard’s conversation was not true at all. For example Sheldon told Leonard how when he was 8 Georgie threw away his Halloween costume and he had to wear a blanket and be a ghost. When Leonard confronts Georgie he says Sheldon apparently was gonna dress as a ‘girl scientist’ (madam Curie) so he had to throw it away otherwise Sheldon would get beaten up ). Really loved the scene with Leonard and Georgie

    Good evening, night and morning! Thank you for your good taping wishes which were very nice! Soon I will learn how to link your names or someone please teach me I am going to let you off the hook here right now for I am afraid that I do not have such good news for Shamy fans. This taping of Feb 21st, 2018: 1118 “The Gates Excitation” ... braise yourselves ... did not have any Shamy scene in it at all But do not be sad. I brought you back some information I believe was speculated about before but was never validated. We got to see 1116 “The Neonatal Nomenclature” before the taping and it started with a scene in the cafeteria where Sheldon actually confirms that he had coitus with Amy 4 times in total (which we all counted as well: 3 birthdays and the Princeton one). So it seems like they are really kind of waiting which is so extremely sweet and actually, yes, very Shamy :-) I will put together a small taping report tomorrow and post it in the discussion thread.

    Who’s Denise, is she the comic book store girl ? If yes then yeah... she was with Stuart : ) he’s asked her to go to the wedding with her, she thought it’d be weird... Then Howard comes in to the store and tells them who’s gonna officiate the wedding... She’s shocked and turns to Stuart and says he’s gotta but her a dress : ) and then in the wedding they have this moment where she tells him he’s hot 😂 Cause he knew all the answers to the SW questions that people asked Mark Hamill and he was like so on point... knew every detail. Mark knew nothing 😂 (questions were asked cause they needed to stall, so Howard was like , who’s here a SW fan ? - everybody raised hands - even Amy’s dad and her mom destroyed him with her look 🙈 - so then Howard was like, Mark will answer your SW questions while we wait )

    I did have a great time and would encourage anyone who is thinking of going to go while they still can. I think I have come away with a greater appreciation of the skills of all the actors. I know it is their job and they are highly paid but coping with the multiple quick changes of script, repeating the scenes, picking up the scene half way through it was great to see. Also seeing where they hide their scripts, Johnny in the kitchen and Jim in the fridge, they all seemed to genuinely get on watching them all talk and laugh together but also giving each other space when they were obviously going over lines in their head. But most of all it was fun.

    Hi guys, here is my report on 1118 “The Gates Excitation”. Please note that I have tried to write it in a neutral style and did not want to give all the information away. The episode is actually quite funny so I decided to leave most of the jokes for you to enjoy when the episode is being aired. I hope this is okay. I think there are already enough spoilers in this. The episode starts in 4A with Penny telling everyone that Bill Gates will visit her work place and she gets to spend a whole day with him on April 1st. Everyone is excited about it but Sheldon, who is almost convinced that it is an April fools’ day joke. In the next scene Lenny talk about how cool Bill Gates visit really is. Next we are in Howardette’s living room and see Steward leaving with the kids to go to the park and Amy and Bernadette getting to spend some time together. Bernie is torn between her roles as a mother and a working person. Amy tries to help and suggests that they could go eat something but they end up finishing an episode of Bob the Builder first. In the next scene Penny finds Sheldon in the laundry room where he is still not convinced that the Bill Gates story is true. In a pretaped restaurant scene Amy tries to talk with Bernie about something other than children. Back in 4A Penny tells Leonard, Howard and Raj that she needs to go to work to prepare her day with Gates. Leonard comments that it is a Sunday but then Penny shows him the schedule on her phone and says it is very tight. The guys try to convince her to get them an autograph which she declines. After Penny left Leonard reveals that he saw the hotel where Gates is staying so they all follow her. In a pretaped scene we see the guys nursing drinks in the hotel lobby when Leonard spots Gates and rushes to greet him. Back in Howardette’s living room Bernie still contemplates her life while Amy gently tries to make her realise her behavioural changes. On the stairwell (pretaped) Leonard shows Sheldon a picture of himself and Gates and says Gates is staying in a hotel in Thousand Oaks so Sheldon is immediately off. When Leonard arrives in 4A, Penny surprises him with the fact that she has arranged a reception where Leonard gets to meet Gates. Back in Howardette’s living room we hear Bernie reading a story to the kids. Next Howard, Raj and Leonard are in the Comic Book Store without Stewart when Sheldon enters to confront Leonard that Gates wasn’t staying in Thousand Oaks. When Leonard mentions the Double Tree in Long Beach, Sheldon is immediately off again. When Penny is about to leave for the reception, Leonard is sick on the couch so she leaves without him. In another pretaped restaurant scene (sorry, I can’t remember when that took place) Bernie tries to show to Amy that she can actually talk about something other than motherhood. In a pretaped scene Penny video calls Leonard with Bill Gates in tow. In the last scene the entrance door of 4A has a sign “I am sorry” which Sheldon finds (first) and thinks it is Leonard’s way of apologising to him. Leonard has arranged for a romantic dinner with candles, roses and food. Sheldon appreciates it and asks “What’s for dinner”? or something like that.

    Hi guys, Thanks for the reply, I'm glad my infos are appreciated. I'll give you more information (again, I do not confirm that this is really accurate! ) and also my feedback regarding the taping. Your answers are very much appreciated. I don't know what you mean by a shamy scene. The only moment Sheldon & Amy are together is in the living room with everybody. In the first scene (while Howard & Bernadette are still there), they are discussing names. And Sheldon says an awful name and Raj says it's awful and he knows something about awful names because his cousin is named "Dillib" (or something like that). When Howard & Bernadette left to the hospital and they are still discussing names, Raj says "we don't want to hear your names Sheldon, we heard them, they're all awful". And Sheldon says "It's normal, I've kept the good names for my children!". Then Amy get up from her couch and comes sit on the armchair arm (the side of it I mean, so she is a bit higher than Sheldon) and says "Aww that's cute". Someone then says, "do you know how many children you want?" and they both say at the same time "2" (for Amy) and "15" for Sheldon. Then they look to each other and Amy says "15 children??". Sheldon then says "Wow, I don't say that you would bear them all!" Implying that someone else could bear their children, then he looks towards Penny. The camera goes to Penny and Leonard (he was reading a magazine) and they both say "no" at the same time and Leonard put his hands of Penny's back in a protective way. I don't recall much apart from the fact that Sheldon leave the room to get some water (or something else) and says something like "do you want a multivitamin fruit Penny?". Thus implying that he is still having the idea that she could bear their children and she needs to be healthy. Apart from that, he doesn't explain why 15.. Or I don't remember. Impression of the taping : I really enjoyed the taping. I mean, I've travelled half the globe to see that. Mark sweet is doing an amazing job to keep us entertain. And I mean, THIS is necessary. Prior to the taping, I was like "How do the audience still laugh to the second or third tape when they already have seen the scene? They're dumb!". Well, believe me, I laughed again and again to the same scene. I think they are several reasons to that: - Mark sweet is entertaining you so you are predisposed to laugh. He's doing an amazing job. He's also explaining that you should not watch that like in front of your TV. - You are so excited to be on the taping that you are kinda euphoric. So basically, everything can make you laugh. - Also they are sometimes changing some lines so some responses can be different from the scene shot previously. - Also, I believe Americans tends to naturally laugh. Ok this is surely biased and I mean nothing wrong when I'm saying that. But, we (French and european), we are kinda reserved and sometimes, when I laugh, I just blow some air through my nose. But American people tends to be a lot more friendly and "expansive". I mean, several people talked in the queue while waiting and they were laughing together like hell! Later on, in the audience, when one was coming towards Mark to talk, the other one just made a highfive to him. And they met like 1 hour ago on the parking. Anyway, it was awesome and these guys were cool. Apart from that, the actors were great. Melissa Rauch was the nicest. She was looking towards the audience and waving her hands and smiling. Johnny Galecki and Kaley came in front of the audience and they said thank you to us, that we are the reason they are making a 12th season, that we were awesome. I guess they say that at every taping but I really felt that they meant what they were saying. Especially when I see how Jim parsons was. This is really the disappointing part. He is clearly a star and lots of people likes him. But he was transparent of the set. He was most of the time on his phone. I've seen that he posted some photos on Instagram so, retrospectively, maybe he was looking at the comments? But he never looked or smiled nor shake his hands toward the audience like Melissa did. At one moment, to go from the kitchen to the living room scene, instead of crossing directly in front of us, he went to he left, go to the back of the sound stage and reappeared on the right. That was odd. So question is : Why? Has he been assaulted by a fan in a way? I've noticed that security was present when they approached the audience. Or is he like really shy? I mean, the general impression was that he was a bit snob. Regarding Simon Helberg (he is my favourite character), he was really shy also. Like the audience was cheering him a lot and he looked at us and , in a very shy way, he raised his hand right next to his face like "ho hello you" without waving it and exits the scene. That was odd too.. I mean, are they impressed by a crowd of 150 people? That could be but you know, you've been taping 11 season so.. You must get used to it. So clearly, Melissa Rauch was the nicest and the most natural one. Like she was really enjoying the crowd and really happy to be here. Another question is, why did they shot some scene the day before? I get that the scene in the cafeteria is shot before because they're other actors. I also get the scene on the phone because they have to put Howard face on the phone. But the scene were Penny is doing yoga with Bernadette on the living room? In this scene, Bernadette says something about the flat belly, and right after, she's having a hoodie and the audience laughed. So maybe we wouldn't have laughed if the scene was taped in front of us? Because they would have to cut, then Penny should have put on a hoodie, then starting the scene again. I don't know.. Kaley's father was in the audience on the back, like right behind me. Apparently he's present at every taping, I thought that was nice. He seemed like a cool guy. Maybe he still astonished that her daughter can earn 1 million dollar by saying 4 sentences in 3 hours lol. Anyway, this was a really cool experience and I even got a picture signed by the actors. I mean, it was their signature but not the "real ones". They signed on a picture and made a bunch of copies of it. But it's pretty cool anyway. I got it because Mark asked if some people were coming from far away, and I said "France" and another guy "England" and also some from south america. I choose to come and talk to the audience (with my bad english lol) and he gave me the picture whereas he was not giving them to all people coming in front of the audience. So I guess he was kinda rewarding people that were coming from a long distance, that was very sweet (pun intended) of him. Cheers,

    To each their own but I personally loved the episode cause of Georgie. I love him on YS so it was so nice to see him here. also I was in the first group of people to come in, they were still checking in the VIPs in front of us, and the actor who plays Georgie walked past by us and greeted everyone... People around me got excited and I had no idea who he was haha. Anyways it was so sweet of him to do that! also most of the actors messed up tonight , I think Johnny even used the F word haha. Mayim, Jim, Kaley, Johnny and Kunal all messed up once or twice. They gave us the pizza so early I was worried it’s gonna be a short taping with lots of playback but thankfully it was not the case, it was almost 3 hours PS the hotel room you’re talking about is the one in Texas where Sheldon and Leonard stay
This leaderboard is set to New York/GMT-05:00
