  6. OK, as I mentioned, here is the transcript for the first episode of season 12, 1201 The Conjugal Configuration. I'll start working on the second episode next Wednesday.

MRS FOWLER:…… he can’t believe it. And neither can I. MRS FOWLER, AMY HUG. AMY: Hi dad, how are you doing? MR FOWLER, ACTS LIKE HE’S HANGING FROM THE END OF A ROPE, HE IS HOLDING.

END OF FLASHBACK ATOM CUT WITH AN “AND NOW…” TO SCENE B HOTEL ROOM (Sheldon and Amy) AMY SLEEPING, SHELDON GENTLY SHAKING HER TO WAKE HER. SHELDON: Good morning wife. AMY(smiles, laughs): Good morning husband. AMY TURNS IN BED TO FACE SHELDON. AMY: I can believe we’re actually married. SHELDON: It’s official. According to tradition, we should hang the bedsheets outside, so the villagers can see we consummated. SHELDON GETS OUT OF BED, WALKS TO THE WINDOW. AMY: I don’t think that’s appropriate, considering where we’re starting our honeymoon. SHELDON: Well, I suppose you’re right…… SHELDON OPENS THE CURTAINS, LEGOLAND IS OUTSIDE THEIR WINDOW. SHELDON:…… although, when you think about it, Lego is the perfect metaphor, for marital congress. Two pieces that interlock, with a satisfying snap. AMY: Oh, that’s the sound you were making. SHELDON WALKS TO THE BED SHELDON: Oh, I almost forgot, while you were sleeping, I ordered room service. SHELDON PICKS UP A COVERED SERVING TRAY, AND BRINGS IT TO AMY. AMY: Really?

PENNY (frustrated): Yes, yes you are. BERNADETTE: Would you like us to leave, so you and Leonard can talk about all the things you have in common? LEONARD: Ha ha, she called your bluff. RAJ: Something pretty cool happened, channel three asked me to be on the news tomorrow night, to talk about the meteor shower. LEONARD: Well, that’s great. PENNY: Heyyyyyyy. BERNADETTE: Congratulations. HOWARD: You know, that’s how Neil deGrasse Tyson got his start. He went from the Hayden Planetarium, to guesting on the local news, to ruining everyone’s favorite movies on the internet. RAJ: Now it’s happening to me. Oooooo, I should probably make a list of all the scientific inaccuracies in Momma Mia Two. PENNY: You’re going to go on live TV, and admit you’ve seen that movie? RAJ: Hey, your husbands the one who took me. PENNY GIVE LEONARD A WTF STARE. LEOANRD: Meryl Streep and Cher? Yeah, I saw it.

PENNY: Real or Lego? LEONARD: Lego. BERNADETTE: So, what should we do? Should someone go check it out. RAJ: I would, but I got to be on TV tomorrow. Got to protect the money.

DOOR OPENS, MR FOWLER APPEARS. MR FOWLER: Yes? PENNY: Oh, Mr Fowler, sorry, we didn’t know you were here. We actually thought someone was breaking in. RAJ: And we were ready to take them down. MR FOWLER: Amy asked me to water her plants. PENNY: She doesn’t have any plants. MR FOWLER: Oh, well, you’ve caught me in a lie. MR FOWLER TURNS, CLOSES DOOR. MR FOWLER: Have a good day. MR FOWLER WALKS DOWN STAIRS. HOWARD: That was weird, right? LEONARD: Was it? I…I…I honestly can’t tell anymore. LEONARD OPENS DOOR, THEY ALL START TO ENTER.

BELLBOY LEAVES, SHELDON CLOSES DOOR. AMY: Really, Sheldon? You want to do it again? (Amy smiles) SHELDON: Don’t act surprised, it’s clearly marked on the schedule. SHELDON HOLDS UP PHONE, SHOWING SCHEDULE. SHELDON: Now, shall we, steam the wrinkles out of our wizard robes, or make vigorous, socially sanctioned love. Either way, I can check something off my to do list. AMY(sounding puzzled): Socially sanction……(understanding) oh, wow, yeah, there it is right there. SCENE E ATOM CUT TO APARTMENT 4A (Leonard, Penny) LEONARD ON COUCH, PENNY PUTTING PLATE IN THE FRIDGE, THEN WALKS TOWARD COUCH. LEONARD: Uh, hurry, Raj is on next.

GIVES HIM A “WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU” LOOK. LEONARD: I mean he came by to water the imaginary plants, but then he left. MRS FOWLER: You are so naive. Blondie here is going to chew you up and spit you out. PENNY: Well, don’t tell him. LEONARD GIVES PENNY A STRNGE LOOK. MRS FOWLER WAVES HER HAND MRS FOWLER: Come on, you have an extra key, open it up. LEONARD REACHES IN, GETS KEY, GOES TO 4B TO OPEN IT LEONARD: All right, but I’m telling you he’s not in there. LEONARD OPENS 4B, ALL THREE ENTER, LEONARD TURNS LIGHT ON. LEONARD: There, see? MRS FOWLER: Ohhhhh, he’s in here, I can smell his axe body spray. MRS FOLWER LOOKING AROUND IN THE LIVING ROOM LEONARD: He wears axe body spray. PENNY: You happy? You smell like Amy’s dad. MRS FOLWER MOVES INTO THE BEDROOM MRS FOWLER: Larry! PENNY(whispers): Come on. PENNY STARTS INTO BEDROOM. STOPS WHEN LEONARD SPEAKS. LEONARD: Shouldn’t we mind our own business? PENNY: Wow, sometimes, it’s like you don’t know me at all. PENNY HEADS INTO BEDROOM, LEONARD FOLLOWS. MRS FOWLER LOOKING IN THE CLOSET PENNY: See, he not here. MRS FOWLER: You don’t know him like I do. MRS FOLWER MOVES INTO THE BATHROOM LEONARD: To be fair, we don’t know either of you. PENNY AND LEONARD MOVE INTO THE BATHROOM. MRS FOWLER PULLS ONE SIDE OF THE SHOWER CURTAIN, TO THE OTHER SIDE.

WOMAN WAVES RAJ’S CONCERNS AWAY WOMAN: Not important. What can we expect to see from this meteor shower? RAJ: Well, I think we can count on a lot of flaming gas, which is what you would have gotten from your first choice, Neil deGrasse Tyson. RESET CUT TO WOLOWITZ LIVING ROOM HOWARD: Pull up, Raj. Pull up. RESET CUT TO TV SCREEN WOMAN: Sounds like there is no love lost between you and Dr Tyson. RAJ: Oh, no, I love Neil. I mean, not as much as Neil loves Neil, but who does, right?

AMY PUT PURSE ON THE DESK, AND THEN HER AND SHELDON TAKE OFF THEIR ROBES. SHELDON: You yell Harry, watch out, he looks right at you. And, not just Harry, everyone on stage. AMY(annoyed): At the risk of sounding redundant, uh huh. SHELDON: All, right, it’s a bit late, but I did block out the rest of the evening for conjugal relations. Should we shower? I mean before, not during, that’s how you fall and break a hip. AMY: You know, I’m a little jet laggy, maybe we can revisit this in the morning. SHELDON: Oh, no can do, if we miss tonight, it’s not scheduled until Thursday at six. And that’ll have to be no frills, because we got 6:30 reservation at Benihanna. AMY: Sheldon, do we really have to do this on a schedule? SHELDON: Are you suggesting spontaneity? AMY: I… I guess, yeah. SHELDON: So, now that we’re married, sex can occur at any time? Like, we could be brushing out teeth and suddenly your minty fresh tongue is in my mouth? No thank you. AMY: Really? Would it be so bad to mix it up a little? SHELDON: Mix it up? Who are you Betty Crocker? SHELDON STARTS WALKING PASSED AMY AMY: Where are you going? SHELDON: To take a shower. Now that sex can happen at any time, I’ll always have to be ready.

HOWARD BERNADETTE SIT ON COUCH, START EATING HOWARD: Yeah, I cut you a lot of slack, cause you come from another country, but, I mean, you’ve been here a long time. BERNADETTE: Raj, you need to apologize to Dr Tyson. RAJ: Whyyyyyy? This could be good for me. Everybody loves a good twitter feud. Neil and I could be like the new Katie Perry and Taylor Swift.

(beat) Is it possible that you’re sexually frustrated? AMY (testily): Okay, now I’m testy.

LEONARD: My point is, you’re not like her, so we’re not like them. PENNY (a little sad): Well, thirty years from now are you going to hide from me because I’m so scary?

SHELDON: When I was little, and people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I’d always say, a brain, in a jar. AMY: Sure. SHELDON: But, I want to be a good husband to you. And, intimacy, is a part of that. SHELDON IS MOVING THE HOT DOGS BACK AND FORTH, IN FRONT OF AMY’S FACE. AMY: Please put those down. SHELDON PUTS HOT DOGS ON THE BENCH. SHELDON: I’m just worried, that if I don’t schedule our bedroom endeavors, then I may not think about them. And, you’ll grow cold and distant, and seek solace in the arms of a heavily muscled longshoreman. AMY: Where would I find a longshoreman? SHELDON: Along the shore, it’s in the name. AMY (resigned) : Sheldon, I could never be with anybody but you. SHELDON: That’s good to know. I wouldn’t want to fight a man, who’s brave enough to touch a fish. AMY: How’s this for a compromise? Make all the schedules you want, just don’t tell me about them. SHELDON: Excellent. I’ll create an algorithm, that will create a pseudorandom schedule. Eh, do you know why it won’t be a true random schedule. AMY: Because the generation of true random numbers remains an unsolved problem in computer science. SHELDON: Come with me. AMY: Where are we going? SHELDON: To the hotel room. And when we get there, I’m going to need you to say that again, except naked. AMY GASPS. THEY WALK OFF.

The discussion for the season 12 transcripts can be found in the main season 12 forum, under the topic Transcript Discussion.
  9. This is the discussion thread for the season 12 transcripts. I had originally planned to finished season 11 first, then move on to season 12. I changed my mind. I will be doing the first five of season 12, and then alternating between season 11 and season 12, until I finish them. I will then move on to other seasons. I may not do them in chronological order, for instance, I'm interested in seasons four through six, so I may do those first. I'll see how it goes and how it strikes me. I'm working on 1201, right now, so within three or four days of this post (25 November, 2020), you should see the first transcript for season 12. If you have any questions or comments, by all means, leave them in this thread.

BERNADETTE: Thanks for letting me put Halley in your room. LEONARD: Sure, no problem. BERNADETTE STOPS BY PENNY’S CHAIR. BERNADETTE: Er, and Penny she kinda threw up on your stuffed bear. BERNADETTE CONTINUES TO COUCH, SITS. PENNY: Oh, that’s okay. LEONARD: Hey, hey, that’s an Ewok, and it’s mine PENNY(smiling): Which is why it’s okay. SHELDON: See, he gets Ewoks in his bed. AMY: You got Chewbacca, that’s enough. RAJ: I used to have the stuffed raccoon, from Gardians of the Galaxy, but Cinnamon licked it raw. HOWARD: There’s a time and place for your randy dog stories, and it’s never and nowhere. PENNY: Yeah, no more stories about sex, so Amy, that brings us to you. AMY: Well, at work we’ve be doing some interesting research with neuroprosthetics. PENNY: Neat, I’ve been rewatching the OC, so we’re all leading productive lives. AMY: We’ve been working on a computer interface, that can use brainwave patterns to control robotic limbs. But, we’re have a little trouble localizing the signal from the EEG cap. HOWARD: Welp, have you thought about a phased array of sensors, for better localization? AMY: Actually, that never occurred to me. PENNY: It never occurred to me, I would miss the Ewok, conversation. LEONARD: Good, cause I just bought another one on Amazon. AMY: You know, I could use an engineer on this project. SHELDON: Well this works out great, Howard’s an engineer. I’m sure he knows someone who’s qualified. HOWARD: She’s talking about me, Sheldon. I’m perfectly qualified. BERNADETTE: Yeah, Howie’s the world’s best engineer, it says so right on his coffee mug. PENNY: Awwwwww, you got him a mug? RAJ: I did. But it’s not a competition. BERNADETTE: Yeah, I lost that battle years ago. AMY: So, Howard, are you interested? HOWARD: Are you kidding? If I could control robot arms, with my brain, I be able to do so many things. SHELDON: Really? Because you’ve been controlling human arms through your brain for years, and not much has come of it.

LEONARD: Well, yo……yo……your sitting there with a book, it felt like anything was possible. I don’t know… LEONARD GETS A CUP, WALKS TO ISLAND PENNY (miffed): Bernadette left it here. LEONARD: Well, anything interesting? LEONARD POURS COFFEE PENNY: Well, I just saw a picture of a baby’s head crowning, so I hope you enjoyed sex, because we’re done with that.

SHELDON: Yeah, well good news, Amy had to go in early to show Howard around her lab. So, you get to drive me. LEONARD’S FACE CHANGES TO DISAPPOINTMENT. PENNY: Awwwww, his smile of disappointment has turned into a frown of joy. LEONARD: It’s fine, I’ve been driving him for years, what’s one more day.

AMY: Yes. We are using it to map brain wave patterns, and then converting them to electrical impulses, that can be used to control anything, from wheelchairs to robots HOWARD: Based on that ring on your finger, I’d say you’re pretty good at controlling robots. AMY: Careful, that’s my fiancé you’re talking about. (beat) And I can program him to hurt you. ATOM CUT TO SCENE D LEONARD’S CAR (Leonard, Sheldon) LEONARD DRIVING, SHELDON MAKING A SIREN NOISE. LEONARD: I don’t know, a…a…a French police? SHELDON: Oh, so close, Belgian Ambulance. LEONARD MAKES FACE, SHAKES HEAD. SHELDON: All right, you ready for your next one? Just a warning, this one is a little annoying. SHELDON STARTS MAKING A SIREN SOUND LEONARD: eh…eh…eh… let’s take a little……little break, I’m getting a headache. SHELDON (disappointed): Ohhhhhh, right in the middle of our fun game. LEONARD: Yeah, weird. So, Howard and Amy working together, that’s interesting, huh? SHELDON: Eh, it’s all right, I suppose. Look, when usually when Amy complains about her coworkers, I just tune her out, but now, I’ll be able to join in, and pound away. LEONARD: You’re not jealous, of Howard, are you? SHELDON: Of course not. The only engineer I’m jealous of, is the one who blows the train whistle. Ooooooo, that a just gave me an idea for a new game. What whistle am I? LEONARD: Train. SHELDON: For your information, it was going to be teakettle. But, the teakettle was on a train, so I’ll give it to you.

AMY TURNS AND WALKS TWO STEPS TOWARD SHELDON, AMY (smiling): Hi, what a nice surprise. SHELDON: I just came by to see how you two were getting along. AMY: Well, everything is going really great.

SHELDON: It’s Morse code. So we can talk about…… SHELDON MAKES A FACE AND NODS TOWARD HOWARD. SHELDON: Without hurting…… SHELDON MAKES A FACE AND NODS TOWARD HOWARD. SHELDON: ……feelings.

PENNY STANDS AND WALKS TO SHELDON. PENNY: Does it frustrate you? SHELDON: It does. PENNY: I get that. You know, it’s okay to feel frustrated, when things aren’t going your way. SHELDON: I suppose. Ahhhh, maybe it’s not that big of deal. LEONARD LOOKS OVER, PUZZLED, CURIOUS. PENNY: No, no, no, your feelings are valid. Now, why don’t you go wash up, and, we’ll call you when dinner’s ready. SHELDON LOOKS AT PENNY, LEONARD LOOKS AT PENNY IN CONFUSION. SHELDON: Okay. SHELDON LEAVES, PENNY CLOSES THE DOOR. LEONARD: What did you do…are you a witch? PENNY: Well, I’ve been reading Bernadette’s parenting book. It’s like the answer key, to the Sheldon test. LEONARD: That’s amazing.

What if we get up early, and do it in the morning. I promise, I’ll be way more into it. SHELDON: You know what? There was a time that you would have been happy to stay up and collaborate, all night with me. And then wake up in the morning and do it some more. AMY (sighs): Fine, but can we make it quick?

HOWARD: I used to make it appear in my pants, but HR said I had to stop doing that. AMY PUTS MODEL BACK TOGETHER, PUTS IT ON IT’S STAND. AMY: So, how much longer until we can test it. HOWARD: Well, it needs to compile, so it’s going to be a few minutes. AMY: Sounds like we’re earned ourselves a break. HOWARD: You want to hear some Neil Sadaka?

HOWARD: Hey. RAJ: You say your busy as bees, yet here you are, dancing. Although I suppose, bees do dance, but their dance, lets other bees know where the pollen is, and yours does not. So, my logic, despite that slight detour, does track. HOWARD: I’m just waiting for my code to compile. What are you doing here? RAJ: I stopped by to see if you wanted to go to the movies with me. HOWARD: I’d love to, but we’re just about to test the interface, it could take a while. RAJ: Okay, buddy, it’s not my place, but Bernadette’s been feeling a little abandoned, with all the hours you’ve been putting in. AMY: You just asked him to go to the movies.

I’m really proud of the way that you express your feelings. SHELDON: Thank you, I’m just so angry. PENNY: You know, everyone gets angry. Even mommies and daddies. LEONARD: You can’t think this is the right time to validate his behavior. PENNY PULLS LEONARD SEVERAL STEPS AWAY FROM SHELDON PENNY: Okay, what about presenting a united front. LEONARD: What about you coddling him, and he’s never gonna learn. PENNY: Look, you sound frustrated, and I’m really proud of the way you’re able to state your opinion. LEONARD: Thank you. (beat) (angry) What, no, no. Don’t use that book on me. SHELDON: Wai, wai, what book? LEONARD: Penny’s been using one of Bernadette’s parenting books on you. PENNY: What? So has he.

  12. Here's a nice article on Kaley's work, post Big Bang.
  13. That is not Marla Gibbs. Her name is Vernee Watson. (there are various spellings, including hyphenating the last name of Johnson, when she was married). She was also a nurse in the hospital when Sheldon's barber, Tony D'nofrio, was in the hospital (0518 The Werewolf Transformation) and was the nurse at the Hospital when Howard ate the candy bar that had Peanuts in it, on Leonard's birthday (0116. The Peanut Reaction). She was also in the unaired Pilot. Vernee goes all the way back to 1993-94 with Chuck Lorre. She is currently in the main cast for Lorre's Bob Hearts Abishola. Her first appearance in one of Lorre's shows, was in Grace Under Fire (Bernadette's dad, played by Casey Sander, was second billed in that show and was in all 112 shows). Besides the two Big Bang related shows, she has also appeared in Lorre's Two and A Half Men, Mike and Molly, and Dharma and Gregg. She currently has almost 180 acting credits, going back to 1970.
  14. The transcript for the fourth episode of Season 11, 1104 The Explosion Implosion, is now up in the Season 11 Transcript Sub-forum.
  15. In season 11 (1116 The Neonatal Nomenclature) both Amy and Leonard wanted Elliot, for the boys name. I think that is where Amy's comment (You're lucky I let you name him Leonard) comes from. So, if it's a boy, I would think it would be Elliot, since Penny was pregnant first. As for another boys name, or girl names, I have some ideas, but I'm holding back on those, simply because I will be using them in my current fan fic, with Penny pregnant. And don't want to give anything away, just yet, as I haven't disclosed the sex yet. And for those reading and wondering, you have a ways to go yet. I haven't decided on if they will decide to . I just finished the first draft of chapter 40, and they still don't know the sex. MUHAHAHAHAHAH

HOWARD: I could never bring myself to open it without him. Silly. SHELDON: No, it’s not silly. I always wanted my dad to build rockets with me, but he wasn’t interested. RAJ: Ahhhhh, yes, disappointing fathers. Tell me about it. I remember for my sixteenth birthday, my dad bought me a Mercedes. Like, a little one, like a starter Mercedes. He barely handed me the keys, before he had to rush back to work. I didn’t see again until, pretty late that night. HOWARD: Anyway… as angry as I was, with him leaving, building this stuff is probably what led me to become an engineer. SHELDON: I suppose, in his own way, my dad also encouraged me to pursue science. I mean he is the one that taught me flatulence is combustible. And, also, polyester gym shorts, don’t burn. They melt. RAJ: Yeah, I guess I’m an astrophysicist because, as a kid, I said I like to look at the stars, so my dad sent me to Hawaii, to visit the Keck telescope. SHELDON AND HOWARD LOOK AT RAJ IN DISBELIEF. RAJ (looking hurt): Screw you, my pain is real. RAJ WALKS AWAY. HOWARD: You know what, forget the past. What do you say, you and me, build this rocket. SHELDON: That sound’s like it could be a real bonding experience, for us. HOWARD: Right? SHELDON: Oh, I see…oh you think that’s a positive ATOM CUT TO SCENE E WOLOWITZ LIVING ROOM (Bernadette, Raj).

RAJ: No, they were bonding over their sad childhoods, and my stupid parents were always there for me. What’s all this? BERNADETTE: I’m just boxing up all the clothes Halley’s outgrown. I guess we won’t need them anymore. RAJ: Whoa, slow down, I’m sure there are some you can reuse, for a boy. BERNADETTE HOLDS UP A TSHIRT, READS PHRASE ON SHIRT BERNADETTE: Daddy’s little girl? RAJ: Okay, well, what if we change it to say, Daddy’s little girl magnet? BOOM, boy shirt. BERNADETTE: What about this. BERNADETTE HOLDS UP A RED TUTU RAJ: Ahhhhh, okay, pull off the skirt, slap a lightning bolt on the front and you’ve got baby Flash. Oooooh, stick a long sleeve under it, BOOM, baby Sheldon. BERNADETTE: Wow, you’re really good at this. RAJ: Ahhhhh, please, this isn’t my first time turning girl clothes into boy clothes. BERNADETTE: Why? You got your sisters hand me downs? RAJ: Yeah, that. ATOM CUT TO SCENE F INSIDE HOWARD’S CAR (Howard, Sheldon) HOWARD DRIVING HOWARD: Oh, I should have brought peanuts. SHELDON: You can’t eat peanuts, you’re allergic. If you die, who’s going to drive me home? HOWARD: I’m not going to eat them, it’s a thing they do at JPL. When the Ranger mission finally had a successful launch, there were peanuts in the room. And, ever since then, they have them at every launch. SHELDON: It sounds like a silly superstition. HOWARD: It’s more of a tradition. SHELDON (excited): Ohhhhhhhhhhh, I do love a tradition. Would you, pull over at the next peanut store. HOWARD: I don’t think that’s a real thing. SHELDON: Oh, don’t be pedantic, any nut store will do. HOWARD: I don’t think we can get peanuts out here. SHELDON: Well, then this whole day is ruined. HOWARD: Now that I think about it, maybe it is more of a superstition. SHELDON: Whew, that was close.

You think you’re getting close to her, and the next thing you know, you’re featured in a book called, He’s Doing it on Purpose: Raising a Teenage Bedwetter. PENNY: No, it’s not like that, you know, she’s been opening up about her life, and she’s actually be really supportive about mine. LEONARD: Really? PENNY: Yeah, I’ve been telling her about my job and she’s said she was proud of me. Even when I stayed dry for a whole month. LEONARD: Well that’s great. She never told me she was proud of me.

HOWARD: Thanks for trying, but you’re not going to be able to cheer me up. SHELDON: Well, how about this then? You quit your whining, before I give you something to cry about, young man. HOWARD: What? SHELDON: Those are comforting words my father would often say. HOWARD: Did it help? SHELDON: I turned out great, you tell me. HOWARD: Let’s get going. BOTH START WALKING TOWARD THE CAR. SHELDON: Are you going to be this mopey all the way home? HOWARD: I don’t know, maybe. SHELDON: Is there any chance you’d be cheered up by an amazing trigonometry riddle?

SHELDON CLOSES DOOR RAJ: So, you know, I understand why Howard is nervous about having a son, but are you really upset about it? BERNADETTE: No, I’m fine. It’s just I grew up with a bunch of brothers, so I thought it’d be nice for Halley to have a sister. Is that wrong? RAJ: Of course it’s wrong. You don’t know what this little boy is going to be like. Maybe he’ll be rough and tumble, or maybe he’ll be sweet and sensitive, or maybe he’ll be all those things, like me. BERNADETTE (sarcastically): You’re rough and tumble? RAJ: You bet I am, bitch.

I am pretty sure they’re not best friends, cause you can only have one best friend, and Penny has that, and it’s me. LEONARD: Oh, really? Is she FaceTiming with you right now, because she’s FaceTiming with my mom, and believe me that is not a face you want to spend time with? AMY: Hmmmff, well, I have been pretty busy lately. Maybe I’ve been neglecting our friendship AMY STANDS, WALKS TOWARD THE WINDOW LEONARD: Penny knows I have a complicated relationship with my mother, it’s like she doesn’t even care. AMY: And with everything going on at the lab, and planning the wedding, I just, I have so little free time.

You don’t even have a license. SHELDON: Actually, I do. HOWARD (surprised): Really? Since when? SHELDON: Three years ago. I went on a bit of a license kick. I’m also a commercial fisherman. HOWARD: Then why don’t you ever drive yourself. SHELDON: Honestly, I barely passed my test, and the one time I drove on my own, I made a U-turn, got dizzy, threw up, and walked home. HOWARD: You really want to drive? SHELDON: It seems like the perfect time. The roads are straight, there’s no one around, and you don’t seem to care if you live or die.

BEVERLY: But, why do you think I’m not proud of you? LEONARD: Because you never say it. But, two days into chatting with Penny and you can’t stop telling her how great she is. BEVERLY: She is great. Honestly, of all of my children’s spouses, she’s the one I’m most impressed by. LEONARD: Seriously? BEVERLY: Yes, she’s confident, she thoughtful, and she never complained about you once. I know what kind of strength that takes. LEONARD: So, Penny’s your favorite. BEVERLY: I suppose she is. You married well, Leonard, and for that, I am proud of you.

HOWARD: It’s a date, just pick one. SHELDON: It’s not just a date, it’s a textbook optimization problem. There is a perfect date. Just like there is a perfect room temperature, and a perfect desert. PENNY: Hmmmm, there is no perfect desert. SHELDON: Yellow cake, in the shape of a dinosaur, with chocolate frosting, a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side, not touching. You’ll see, you’ll have it at our wedding. AMY(deadpan): You wanna bet? SHELDON: You give me enough time, I can do the same thing with a wedding date. It needs to be on the weekend, not near any of your birthdays, or the weekend of Comic-con. LEONARD: Ohhhhhhh, you could get married at Comic-con. AMY, BERNADETTE, PENNY (together): Noooooo.

HOWARD(guffaws): Just a reminder, you’re married. BERNADETTE: A female co-worker. She’s new in town, and I want to make her feel welcome. I let her know the office is full of liars before everyone tells her I’m mean. HOWARD: Is she single? BERNADETTE: I’m not setting her up with Raj. HOWARD: What about Stewart.

AMY: Thanks, so it’s strange. Sheldon was talking in his sleep last night, and he seemed like a totally different person. He was relaxed, and loose, and calm. LEONARD: Sheldon is a complicated man. AMY: He said, whatev. LEONARD: Get him a brain scan, that might be a tumor. AMY: I think the wedding planning is really stressful for him. And, that can trigger sleep talking. PENNY: Maybe this is part of Sheldon’s personality he’s been repressing. I think we dream about things we wish we could be in real life. AMY: Really, what do you dream about? PENNY: Oh…uh…yo…being the wife of Leonard, mostly that. LEONARD: I choose to believe you. AMY: As much as we’ve studied the brain, there’s still a lot we don’t know about dreams and their function. You know, even psychologists are divided on it. LEONARD: It’s true, Freud thought dreams were about sex. Adler thought they were about dominance. PENNY: Then again, mine are just about being married to this little guy. LEONARD: Okay, now it’s just edging into mockery.

AMY: Well, they’ve already arranged to die in threes, what more do you want from them. SHELDON: It’s so frustrating. Why can’t I find the perfect date? I found the perfect way to say hi to cowboys.

SHELDON(angrily): So, you spied on me, in my sleep? AMY: Sheldon, I’m sorry. You’ve been doing this every night. I couldn’t help but wonder if it meant something. SHELDON: Well, it doesn’t. SHELDON STANDS, AND WALKS TOWARD THE DOOR. AMY STANDS WALKS TOWARD SHELDON. AMY: Are you sure? I mean the pre-frontal cortex regulates impulse control. So it’s plausible, that when we’re asleep, aspects of our personality that we repress, might come out. SHELDON(angrily): Don’t try to put science lipstick on your new age pig. And, for the record, you make noises when you sleep. But, I’ve never accused you of repressing your inner chainsaw. SHELDON LEAVES APARTMENT, SLAMS DOOR. AMY PUTS UP HER HANDS IN DEFEAT.

STUART, RAJ ENTER FROM THE BACK ROOM. RAJ: I’m just saying, you should bow out. STUART: Why should I bow out? RAJ: Uh, because, we all know how this is going to end. STUART: That’s what my doctor said, too, but I’m still here. RAJ: Okay, look, I…I…I think that she and I have more in common. STUART: Because, your Indian? So, just cause she’s brown, you get to date her? RAJ: Yes. (beat) and the next time we meet a woman who’s pale and cadaver like, she’s all yours. STUART WALKS OVER TO HOWARD, RAJ FOLLOWS STUART: Howard, Bernadette was there last night, did she say anything when she got home? HOWARD: Yeah, she said why’d you tell those idiots where I was, thanks a lot. RAJ: How about we flip a coin. LEONARD: Hang on, doesn’t this girl get a word in all of this? And isn’t that word, no? STUART: Ruchi said she wanted to hang out with both of us, why don’t we just do that? RAJ: Fine. Let's hang out as friends, and see what happens. LEONARD: And, if something grows out of it, just worry about it then. STUART: Also, what my doctor said. ATOM CUT TO SCENE L LAUNDRY ROOM (Sheldon) SHELDON STARTING A WASHING MACHINE, PENNY ENTERS.

SHELDON WALKS TO FOLDING TABLE STARTS FOLDING CLOTHES.. PENNY: Why is this sleep talking thing bothering you anyway? SHELDON: It’s simple. I don’t like the idea that my mind might be keeping an entire personality from me. Dr Jekyll’s other personality was Mr Hyde. Mr Hyde, he didn’t even have a post-graduate degree. PENNY STARTS MACHINE, PUTS SOAP IN BASKET, AND WALKS OVER TO SHELDON PENNY: Is it possible that you’re stressed, because you’re scared about getting married? I mean it is a big change, and you’re not good with little changes. SHELDON: Welp, that’s nonsense. You name one little change, I was upset with. PENNY: Uhhhhh, when they changed the green Skittle from lime to apple. SHELDON: That is not the rainbow I grew up tasting. PENNY: All right, fine, let’s start over. Is it possible that the sleep talking is a part of your brain that’s telling you everything is going to be okay, and you just need to relax a little? SHELDON: So, you’re proposing that the self is an illusion, and that we actually have multiple centers of consciousness, that are communicating with one another? PENNY: In layman’s terms, yeah. SHELDON: Huh, interesting. So, you don’t believe there’s a Cartesian self, that underlies the flux of experience. PENNY: Maybe in my twenties, not anymore. SHELDON: Okay, well assuming you’re right, what would you suggest I do? PENNY: Well, I would start with something small. See if it makes your life any better. Ahhh, you could learn to meditate, take a yoga class, SHELDON: You know, I have always been intrigued by flip-flops. The official footwear of the laid back fellow. PENNY: Okay, sure. SHELDON: Of course, if my feet are going to be exposed, I’ll need to update my tetanus booster. PENNY: Oh yeah, makes sense. PENNY WALKS OVER TO WASHING MACHINE, PICKS UP BASKET SHELDON: And while I’m there, I may as well get a flu shot, and a mole check PENNY: Sure. You know, I’ve never had a mole check.

RUCHI ANSWERS RUCHI: Sorry guys, it’s work, I’ve got to take it. I’m so glad you made it Stuart. RAJ (sarcastically): Oh, yeah, so glad. RUCHI WALKS AWAY. STUART WATCHS HER LEAVE, TURNS TO RAJ STUART: I can’t believe you went behind my back RAJ: Which clearly means I want this more. STUART: You want a play a game of “who’s more desperate” with me? Cause you’re in the big leagues now, bucko. RAJ: Look, look, Ruchi and I are really hitting it off. Please, let me just have this one. STUART: I’m not going anywhere. I’m like a fungus you can’t get rid of. RUCHI RETURNS, PUTS PHONE IN HER PURSE. RUCHI: Sorry. So, what’s going on? RAJ: Oh, you just missed Stuart’s funny story about the fungus he can’t get rid of. STUART(frustrated) Raj didn’t tell me about tonight, so he could be alone with you. RUCHI: Really? That’s a little weird. RAJ: Just a little? Because I can work with that. RUCHI: Look guys, I’m not interested in dating anyone right now. I’m just looking to make some friends, RAJ: Yeah, I totally understand. But if you were going to date someone, would it be me, or Stuart. RUCHI: I think I’m going to go. RUCHI STARTS TO WALK AWAY. STUART STEPS TOWARD HER, STOPS HER STUART: Ah, ah, ah, Ruchi, I’m sorry. If you still want to hang out as friends, I’d like that. RUCHI: Thanks Stuart, I’d like that too. RUCHI LEAVES. STUART TURNS TOWARD RAJ STUART: And the fungus is under the toenail.

AMY TURNS TO SEE SHELDON. AMY: Oh my God, what happened? AMY GOES TOWARD SHELDON. SHELDON GOES TOWARD AMY SHELDON: After I got the flip-flops, I realized the tops of my feet were exposed, so um…I…I put on some sunscreen… AMY, SHELDON SIT ON COUCH …which caused my feet to become slippery, and predictably, one of them fell off and went down a sewer grate. Now, normally, I would have walked away. But, this is a new laidback me. So, instead of getting upset, I just reached down to grab it. That’s when I touched something furry. Which I’m telling myself, was a damp, toupee. When the toupee licked my hand, I screamed, and hopped down the street on my remaining flip-flop. AMY: Can I just ask… SHELDON: This is a long story, why don’t we please save your questions till the end. So, I…I finally came upon a bus bench, where I sat and removed one of my shirts, and fashioned it, into a makeshift shoe. SHELDON PUTS FOOT WITH SHIRT ON IT, ON THE COFFEE TABLE SHELDON: Not a waterproof shoe, that is relevant to the next part of my story. The ankle deep puddle, of warm apple juice. AMY: (3 beats) Apple juice? SHELDON: Maybe, maybe not. (2 beats) I’m telling myself a lot of things, Amy. AMY: What happened to your other flip-flop? SHELDON: Oh…whe…that involves, what I’m telling myself was a melted candy bar. AMY: I…I…I’m sorry. Is there anything I can do to help? SHELDON: Yes, I want you to be in charge of our wedding. Just…you tell me where and when, and I will show up with a boutonnière, in close toed shoes, and a Star Trek uniform underneath my tuxedo. That last part is non-negotiable. AMY: Are you sure that’s what you want? SHELDON:As sure as I’m about to go bath in Purell. AMY: I love you, AMY, SHELDON HUG SHELDON: I love you, too. AMY: You know, ever since I was a young girl, I…I’ve dreamed of a June wedding, maybe on a cliff, overlooking the ocean, at sunset. SHELDON: (2 beats) Sure. Sounds wonderful.

  21. Hey, everyone, It's time to give chucky his retirement birthday wish. Happy 65 chucky.
  22. Even outside my fan fic, I've maintained that some sort of twist was necessary to keep Leonard and Penny apart. We had already seen Penny's feelings, and her regret at breaking up with Leonard. Leonard didn't want to be too far from her, either. But I don't think TPTB were ready to get them back together. With Priya gone, and without some thing to keep L and P apart, it would have been rather silly not to get them together (think of how silly it became with Sheldon still living with them). While it was a bit extreme, it did make their relationship awkward enough that they didn't get back together for another half a year. Although much later, (season 8), we did find out everyone knew, I would have like to see the scene where Penny told Leonard.
  23. Yeah, I've been married 43 years and I find it hard to picture not having her here. You may have noticed more ads. Tripper doesn't have a problem keeping it running, for now. The ads reduce the cost to him. I'm here to cover most of the day to day things. I try to come up with things. Also, I know some people don't watch Young Sheldon, but we do get an occasional note, about the Big Bang Universe. We got one this week, as a matter of fact. As for the rest, thanks. 🙂
  24. In 6-18 The Contractual Obligation Implementation, the girls are talking about skipping work, and going to Disneyland. This conversation occurred, about skipping school: Amy: Hooky? I’ve never played hooky in my life. My mom said that’s how girls end up addicted to reefer and jazz music. Penny: It’s more like how girls end up at a Best Western hotel with a 34-year-old guy named Luther. Bernadette: Joke? Penny: I can laugh about it now. The question from Bernadette where she asks Joke? was base on several comments by Penny prior to this, such as: Are you kidding? You brought fancy wine and made fondue. I’ve slept with guys for less. It’s a joke. Based on real events. Many Lennys were pissed off by that joke, cause they saw it as just another "slut Penny" comment.
  25. Mario, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. This forum meant so much to me (and still does). I was medically retired and was not able to do a lot physically, and the forum filled my time with something I was able to do. Everyone here, contributed to that, even the troublemakers (ahem... chucky 😝). You should have seen a few of mine and Tripper's conversations.
