  1. She redacted the proposal because Leonard gave her an um, not because she wasn't committed.
  2. We'll you are the minority. Everyone else is bitching about Penny apparently tearing down and not accepting Leonard, not being committed (despite a proposal) and being eager to leave him right when she finds something different. I'm not sure what they're doing here, since they clearly don't like the couple and can only manage to complain. As for Sheldon, I think Penny knows that arguing will get her nowhere with him. Leonard would have saved himself a lot of aggravation and humiliation by figuring that out (the cringeworthy argument they had on public radio comes to mind). I'm sure that incedent took tenure off the table for them both.
  3. Maybe it's because she expects that kind of crap from Sheldon but better of Leonard? Especially in this case, when he was the one who gave her grief for not taking this degrading role in the first place?
  4. What instance has demanded she "defend Leonard"? The whole parking lot argument made everyone involved look like complete morons by going so ballistic, hence why it was funny. As for the laziness crap, she still worked a demanding job of waiting tables for ten years (couldn't have been that bad or she would have been fired) while going to as many auditions as she could, taking acting and community college classes, and maintaining a relationship and social life. Doesn't sound like a lazy person to me.
  5. When was it mentioned that he is allowed to change 50% of the apartment? As for the issue, neither Leonard nor Sheldon is a victim in this, though many are acting like Leonard is. He knew what Sheldon was like when he moved in, but has still chosen to live with him for the last ten years despite incessant complaints.
  6. You're really making a lot out of that scene. Leonard is certainly no stranger to casual sex, so it was on him for assuming, and arguably taking advantage of the situation. As for the final scene, it was the tag for one and it had already been made clear they were not getting back together. I would feel really bad for him if he hadn't been coming back from trying to get Leslie to sleep with him. He was fine.
  7. Kaley is so biting her lip to avoid breaking character.
  8. I highly doubt Molaro & Co. care if some on the forums complain about those two being friends (which they've been for most of the series), they know we represent a small portion of the audience. My dad told me that Sheldon and Penny's scenes together are his favorite because they're hillarious. The only ones bothered by it are some of the staunch shippers.
  9. I was actually thinking earlier that I could see Penny as something reminiscent of Flo from Progressive. Certainly a star in her own light, looking at the business they've gotten as a result of her commercials.
  10. Yes, I wasn't too happy about that either. That whole thing was too much. But at least in that situation it was a gift, something she did not ask for or expect, unlike moving in out of necessity would be.
  11. It wouldn't move them ahead, it would just destroy the character of Penny by making her dependent and him some sort of sugar daddy. If that itself didn't destroy her self-confidence, then they would have officially destroyed her character completely. She'd have no pride. Bottom line: No Leonard moving in. The point of having her quit TCF was to eliminate her safety net, not get another one. There's a lot more dignity in going back to waiting tables than there is in relying completely on someone else to pay your bills. And yes, I know he already loaned her rent money, once, four years ago. Not the same thing at all.
  12. Maybe Wil makes his directorial debut after it falls through, I could see that being a much funnier storyline than it ending with everyone getting fired.
  13. She would have gotten about $950 a week, likely for at least two weeks if she had been doing it long enough to make others sick of hearing it. She also has some apparent savings. So there should be no need to have Leonard move in.
  14. It's not a milestone for them, they live five feet away from each and alternate nights in the other's apartment. I'm a Lenny fan and I have no clue why they insist upon him moving in every single episode. There's barely enough room for one person in that apartment, only one closet, and I don't know how Leonard would all his comic book crap in there. It sounds like a claustrophobic nightmare. Those new dynamics would create a lot less potential for comedy. Sheldon wouldn't be funny on his own, and I have no interest in seeing Amy in the parental role.
  15. I sure as hell hope not. Penny would have already gotten paid for the filming she did do. If it hasn't happened in the time since she quit it shouldn't happen now. Penny deserves a storyline outside of being Leonard's hot girlfriend.
  16. Not the same thing at all, to get that from my point that you don't get praise for every nice thing you do is a real stretch. As for the money issue, she was understandably embarrassed, so saying she needs to get off her high horse (a phrase applied to those who are self-righteous, not ones who dare to have some pride, though you've made it clear she shouldn't have any because she's a "lazy" waitress at TCF) is pretty extreme. But yes, she should have asked Kurt for the money, though that might not have done much good since they'd apparently already established he'd pay her back. She didn't even seem to realize that was the reason she was broke until Leonard pointed it out.
  17. That was an issue with Penny's pride, understandably so, and doesn't take away from Sheldon's gesture. He did a nice thing, I don't know why half this forum is unwilling to accept that. I actually liked the ending, a lot of times you do a good thing and don't get credit, so to me it was honest and realistic. I see no reason to bring it up all these years later.
  18. Look at it this way, they'll be prepared to handle anything their may future kids throw their way.
  19. Well, they say the first year of marriage is always the hardest.
  20. Considering the needlessly persistant fashion in which Alex pursued a guy she knew was unavailable, it could easily be argued that she was just as desperate as Stuart or Raj.
  21. Saying she is only special in Leonard's mind is essentially calling her a charity case. Penny quit her job on her own terms to focus on her own goals, in no way would that make her less of a "catch", especially considering how little you thought of her previous job as a waitress. The only one on the forum who seems to think otherwise is you, as you seem to emphasize that far more in every single one of your posts than the show ever has. In the episode where Leonard got noticed by Alex (who is no more impressive than Zack, Stuart, or Raj) he mentioned that part of why he enjoyed it is because Penny gets attention "everywhere they go" by guys who are taller and likely better looking than him.
  22. I mentioned David to prove that she would be considered a catch to men more surface-level appealing than Leonard, contrary to SRAM's idea of "she's a charity case who is only great in Leonard's mind".
  23. Actually it has. In the S1 finale, she described herself as being "done" with the guys she usually dates; describing them as macho, great hair, and having a lot of money. Leonard ironically replied that must be awful. The other scientist Penny went for, David I believe, also comes to mind. On the surface he seemed like everything you'd want in a guy, until you learn his is married.
  24. Half the time you seem to have the attitude that Penny is trash and Leonard would be better off with Alex. Because she's seen as a catch to more people than just Leonard, Howard, Raj, and Amy being a few easy examples. Her mentioning Alex would have indicated a lack of trust, and then half the forum would be complaining about that. She's probably forgotten about plain Alex like most of the audience. I would have if it weren't for the boards. Penny mentioned going for the rich, handsome, but not so nice type back in S1, so I doubt they were "flings" as you seem to classify them, and would probably be seen at the surface as more desirable than Leonard.
  25. I definitely wouldn't consider Kurt a fling, they were together for four years. Mike seemed like a regular relationship, they dated for the better part of S1. Leslie was a fling and Alice probably wouldn't have amounted to anything more, they were just hooking up in that episode. Let's not forget Bernadette's friend Joyce, who he went out with again only because he knew she'd put out. So Stephanie is the only one who ever considered him marriage material, Priya had no respect for him, and Alex just reeked of desperation (why else would she shamelessly pursue a guy in a relationship?)
