    It would be so awesome if they had him get hurt doing something to protect Penny and we just have Penny fawn all over him for an episode.  It would be very in character for him to put himself in front of Penny to protect her and getting hurt instead.

    I was thinking that or it was from an injury incurred when falling on his hand when the bed collapsed.

    I would assume that being in charge of a decision like that would preclude that person from giving the funding to themselves.  It's how I would imagine it would happen in real life, but this is a sitcom and in real life would Leonard have been in charge of such a decision anyway?

    I agree with @vonmar had someone else in the show done it the outcry would be far more vociferous.  I think it's fair to call Leonard selfish in this episode, whether that was funny or not is down to each individual.

    I didn't like that Leonard took the Grant money for his laser. It was selfish, but it was even more of a "screw it"response, a giving up on his  having done a good, fair, thoughtful job on deciding which project was most deserving, even to the point of asking Siebert to fund all 3. He couldn't decide, got frustrated and took the easy way out. IRL, he could have met with the 3 contenders, explained it was a tie (to avoid hurt feelings and anyone being angry at him, a big deal with Leonard). He could have asked them to scale down their projects and split the money 3 ways, or picked one of the 3 in a random type of selection, since, to him it was a tie. But, he didn't see it through because it's a sitcom and the writers thought it was a funny solution.  

    Sheldon, by the way, was typically and unambiguously selfish by sitting around, enjoying his cold  beverage and fascinating , barn-raising facts, watching his friends hard at work and not lifting a finger to help with the play house. Because the writers think that's funny.

    Howard may just be joking, maybe he doesn't have anything to do with it. The telescope software could be related to Raj. But there are many others other than Leonard's three close friends, it doesn't seem to be a battle between the three. Leonard seems to be doing a thorough job. I'm expecting him to be having a hard time trying to make the right decision, and this is something the writers can use to turn it on him and end it. Based on the show's history I'd say it well may be one and done, with Leonard screwing up. I would like them to keep with it and have him get ahead in the university. Be it having some role making funding-related decisions or eventually becoming department chair, I think there is good comedic and character growth potential there.

    I'd also like to see Penny be supportive and helpful:firstmove:

    Thanks, Luminous for another perfect page in the Lenny Storybook! Look at their hands in the last picture! Looks like Penny's giving Leonard's ear lobe a little massage! And Leonard has a strong, firm grip around Penny's shoulder with his wedding band on display  and his other hand around her waist.  The perfect, loving Lenny embrace❤️

    After seeing the pictures I watched the episode a third time. I loved the whole episode. Thought the whole cast was great.  And, of course, it was the Lenny episode I've been waiting for all season.:kissing:❤️

    While I did not like the joke and found Penny's attitude quite obnoxious, she did not admit to not inviting him when they were dating. Over the first 5 seasons there was only one Halloween when theh were dating, season 3. Maybe she didn't have a party then. Season 2? Maybe it was awkward after they had that first date that didn't develop into something more. Maybe she wanted to forget about him in the romantic sense, and a Halloween party would make that harder. Season 4? After their break up. Again, awkwardness and perhaps memories, and maybe also regret for breaking up with him which we know she felt. Season 5? I think he was with Priya at the time. 

    The thing is if she was having a party, Leonard and Sheldon would have gotten wind of it. Kind of hard to keep it a secret with them across the hall. It was a pretty dumb thing for the writers to throw in. Didn't make any sense and was mean to boot.

    They have known each other a relatively long time. Why not have their individuality show through. They are not worried about it.  Not a jab at all.

    Lenny costumes didn't match is S 6 Halloween Party and it didn't keep them out of the tardis!!! It was a great Lenny episode all around.❤️

    Thanks, Penny.  😁

    "Now. Where were we?"

    This is  my favorite part of the Lenny interactions. They had a good evening hosting a party together in their home. They got to the bottom of the first kiss misunderstanding without a fight.  Penny locked out poor Stuart(I felt a tiny bit bad for him,but not that bad. Hello, isn't it clear they want to be alone? Get out!) Now they can get back to business.

    Loved the good tone ,happy,loving contented vibe between them. Looked like, felt like a happy young married couple to me.

    I’m usually a glass half-full sort when it comes to Penny & Leonard, but my spirits regarding them are quite low right now. When I first watched the clips, the mention of two magical early Lenny moments had me hopeful, but instantly, that bubble of hope burst. After a great moment last season in Bitcoin, where we saw an example of Penny’s deep, deep love of Leonard, we get this Season 12 malarkey. Ever since September 24, even I’m wondering why they are married. I just don’t understand what the he** TPTB are doing.

    That happy, excited feeling:danced: which started on the Monday before a new Thursday episode has been replaced by mounting anxiety about what will befall Lenny in the upcoming new episode.:girlimpossible: Watching a sitcom used to be fun!
