  1. Nope. Both Leonard and Mandy mentioned that it was only a kiss.
  2. The transcript for the third episode of season 12, 1203 The Procreation Calculation is now up. For those that are reading or looking through these transcripts, if you see a punctuation, or factual error, drop me a DM, so I can fix it.
  3. The Procreation Calculation Season 12 Episode 03 Teleplay by: Story by: Steve Holland Chuck Lorre & & Maria Ferrari Tara Hernandez & & Anthony Del Broccolo Adam Faberman COLD OPEN SCENE A ATOM CUT TO APARTMENT 4A (Counter clockwise around coffee table. Leonard, Penny, Sheldon, Amy, Bernadette, Howard, Raj) THE GANG AROUND THE COFFEE TABLE EATING. RAJ ON FLOOR, STANDS, WALKS TO KITCHEN. BERNADETTE: So, Penny, we were talking to our neighbors and they’re thinking of moving and selling their house. PENNY: Really, why? HOWARD: Something about babies crying and keeping them up all night, it’s not important. You guys should totally take a look at it. PENNY LAUGHS BERNADETTE: We could be neighbors. AMY: Hey, wait a minute, what about us? AMY MOVES HER HAND INDICATING SHELDON AND HERSELF. AMY: We’re married now, maybe we want to buy the house next door. SHELDON: Amy, we can’t move, I’d have to change all the tags in my underwear. AMY: You can buy new ones. SHELDON: Wha……new house, new underwear, what are I, in the witness protection program? HOWARD: Okay, guys, so what do ya think? LEONARD: I don’t know, we’re pretty happy here. PENNY: Yeah, plus, if we moved, we’d probably just get a loft, downtown. LEONARD: Really? I always figured we’d get a place with a yard. PENNY: Oh, sure, that makes sense, so you could (sarcastic) shoot hoops, and mow the lawn? HOWARD: How are you two married? LEONARD: You were there, I wore her down. PENNY POINTS TO LEONRD PENNY: He did, RAJ WALKS BACK INTO THE LIVING ROOM, AND SITS ON THE FLOOR. RAJ: You two should have talked about this stuff, while you were dating. Me and Anu, already know so much about each other. BERNADETTE: Wait, I forget, is Anu your waxer? RAJ: Ah, no, that’s Annette, Anu is the woman my father fixed me up with. We’re going on our first date tomorrow. Which reminds me, I need to see Annette. AMY: You’re really letting your father pick out a wife? RAJ: Why not, arranged marriages have been working for thousands of years. Anu and I come from similar backgrounds. Our families get along, and we each filled out questionnaires, so we know we’re not wasting our time with someone who is not compatible. PENNY: Wow, that sounds so dry and clinical. SHELDON: You lucky duck. LEONARD: I just don’t think you can truly know someone, until you’ve spent a lot of time with them. RAJ: Really? What’s Penny’s dream vacation? PENNY TURNS TO LEONARD, EXPECTANTLY LEONARD: Ahhhhhhh, Malibu beach house. PENNY: That’s Barbie’s dream vacation.

BERNADETTE: Yes, I also tell people that I only feed the kids organic. It’s just stuff you say. [SFX] DOOR CLOSING. DENISE AND STUART ENTER STOP UPSTAGE OF COUCH. DENISE: Hey STUART: Hello HOWARD: Hey. How was your night? STUART: Ahhhh, it was great, we went to an improv show. DENISE: They asked the audience to suggest a word, and they used Stuart’s BERNADETTE: Oh, cool, what was it? STUART (smiling and proud): Coconuts DENISE: It was such a good one. STUART: It just came to me. What are you guys up to? HOWARD: Reading DENISE: Oh, nice, I wish I read more. BERNADETTE: Well, if it’s important, you find the time. HOWARD GIVES BERNADETTE A WTF LOOK. STUART: You want to see my room? DENISE: Yeah. STUART: Cool. DENISE AND STUART EXIT, TO HIS ROOM BERNADETTE: How do you feel about this? HOWARD: That she can clearly do better, but that’s not for me to say. BERNADETTE POINTS TOWARDS STUARTS ROOM. BERNADETTE: No, with them in his room, doing stuff.

LEONARD: Well, I’ve spent a lot of time painting D & D miniatures. I know that makes you want to rip my shirt off, but wait until your nails are dry. PENNY AND LEONARD SMILE AT EACH OTHER. [SFX] TONE FROM LEONARD’S PHONE. LEONARD: Oh, it’s Raj. He sent us that Indian marriage questionnaire PENNY: Oooohhh, read one. LEONARD READS FROM PHONE. LEONARD: Okay…… How religious are you? That’s easy, both of us, not at all. PENNY: No, I wouldn’t say not at all. I mean, I am pretty spiritual, I do go to yoga, so…… LEONARD: Great, so your church is Our Lady of the Stretchy Pants. Next question…… ahhhh, how close are you with your family. PENNY: Pretty close. LEONARD: I’m gonna say not too close, but I’m hoping to get farther. How do you feel about children? PENNY: Um, they’re okay, I guess. I mean, if I saw one, I wouldn’t throw a rock at it. LEONARD: W-why would you throw a rock at a child? PENNY (chuckling): I just said I wouldn’t. LEONARD: The question is, would you like to have kids? So, yeah, we want kids. PENNY: Yeah, someday PENNY LOOKS UNCOMFORTABLE. LEONARD: Right, like in the next five years. PENNY: Sure, uh, next question. LEONARD: How are you with pets? Well, I did take care of Sheldon for fifteen years, and he only bit me twice. PENNY SMILES, BUT STILL LOOKS UNCOMFORTABLE.

WAITER: Yes ma’am ANU: Thank you. So, you’re an astrophysicist. RAJ LOOKS SHOCKED. RAJ: Yes, ma’am. ANU GIVES RAJ A WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU LOOK. RAJ: I-I mean, just yes. U-u-unless you prefer, “ma’am”. ANU: I don’t. RAJ: Because you don’t seem like a ma’am. You seem more like a sweet thang. ANU: Wow, you are not good at this. RAJ (chuckles: If I was good at this, I wouldn’t need to be fixed up by my father. ANU: I never though I’d let my family set me up either, but I’m 34, I’d like to have kids, and it’s hard to date, because I work so much. RAJ: Oh, yes, uh, you’re a concierge. ANU: For now, I plan to be managing a hotel in the next five years. Four, if I can get the current manager out of the way. He’s a smoker, so fingers crossed. ANU CROSSES HER FINERS. RAJ: I-I get it. You know, um, I used to have a long list of what I wanted from a wife. Uh, eyes like Sandra Bullock, hair like Sandra Bullock, and the bravery of Ryan Stone. That’s Sandra Bullock’s character in Gravity. But, now I-I just want someone nice. ANU: I think I’m nice. Are you nice? RAJ: Oh, I’m definitely nice, every time a girl breaks up with me, she always starts with, You’re a nice guy. ANU: Look, you’re whole sweet, insecure thing is cute, but honestly, I have no time for that. If you’re not serious about this, you need to walk away, now. RAJ: I-I am serious. ANU: Good. RAJ (chuckles): Okay. I-I_ okay wh-wh what does this mean? ANU: I think it means I might be the future Mrs…… RAJ: Koothrappali ANU: How would you feel if I didn’t change my name?

BERNADETTE: They were just laughing and playing like a couple of jerks. (beat) Boy, they’re cute, but they ruin everything. PENNY SITS IN CHAIR IN FRONT OF BERNADETTE’S DESK. PENNY: I get that. You know, I’ve been thinking lately, that maybe I don’t want kids. BERNADETTE: Are you crazy? Of course you want them, it’s amazing. PENNY: You just said they ruin everything. BERNADETTE: I’m allowed to. It’s their fault I pee when I laugh. BERNADETTE GET UP, GOES TO HER CREDENZA, AND PICKS UP A FOLDER. PENNY: Hang on, why is it crazy, to say I might not want kids. BERNADETTE: Oh, it’s not crazy. It’s just wrong. You only think you don’t want kids, but once you have kids, you’ll realize that you did want them. PENNY: Or I don’t want them, so I won’t have them, so back off. BERNADETTE: Awwwww, you sound just like me, before I became a mom, and learned what the meaning of love was. PENNY STANDS PENNY (a bit angry): Wow, I cannot believe how condescending you’re being. BERNADETTE: Look, I know it’s scary, but you’re gonna be a great mom. PENNY (angry): I know I’d be great, but the point is I don’t want to be one. BERNADETTE: Maybe you wouldn’t be great. You kind of got a temper.

HOWARD(laughs) Wait, you’re not seriously marrying a woman you’ve met once. RAJ: Why not? She’s nice, I’m nice. We’re just as likely to be happy as any other two people. Maybe even happier. LOOKS AT LEONARD. RAJ: Sorry, that was not a swipe at you. LEONARD LOOKS PUZZLED. LEONARD: I didn’t think it was. RAJ LOOKS A LITTLE GUILTY. RAJ: Good, cause it was not. SHELDON: Well, I for one applaud Raj’s decision to forgo emotional attachment, and find a life partner by bowing to a 3000 year old authoritarian tradition. LEONARD: What are you talking about? You married a woman you’re in love with. SHELDON: I can’t believe you’re throwing that back in my face. RAJ TURNS TOWARD HOWARD. RAJ: Why can’t you just be happy for me. HOWARD: Because, you’re being dumb. You don’t know anything about her. RAJ: W-w-well, how come you all get to be married, and I have to stay single? HOWARD: I think that’s a question for a licensed professional. RAJ: You know what? you’re not just insulting me. Okay, you’re insulting my family, my culture, and my future bride, Anu. A vegetarian, with a masters degree from Cornell, who’s favorite fruit is pineapple. RAJ GET UP FROM THE TABLE AND WALKS OFF. SHELDON: Now, I’m not sure if this helps, but did you know, that pineapples were once so rare, that king Charles posed for a portrait with one? LEONARD: How does that help? SHELDON: Oh, it helped me. I’ve been trying to slide that into a conversation for years. SCENE G ATOM CUT TO WOLOWITZ LIVING ROOM (Howard, Bernadette) BERNADETTE SITTING ON THE SOFA, WORKING ON HER COMPUTER.

HOWARD WALKS TO COUCH AND SITS NEXT TO BERNADETTE. HOWARD: Raj is talking about marrying this woman, he just met. I told him it was dumb, and now he’s mad at me. BERNADETTE: The same thing happened to me. Penny said she didn’t want kids, and I told her she was being silly. And, she accused me of being condescending. Which is crazy, because if I wanted to be condescending, I would have said…… BERNADETTE’S VOICE BECOMES CONDESCENDING BERNADETTE: ……Ooohhh, condescending, that’s such a big word. HOWARD: Why won’t our friends just listen to us? We obviously know what we’re talking about. BERNADETTE: I know. We’re married, we have great kids, great jobs, this great house.

Like, when you said you didn’t want to talk about this. LEONARD: Forget it. SHELDON LOOKS AT LEONARD, (4 BEATS). SHELDON: Do you want to have children? LEONARD: Well, I always assumed we would, and now I find out, you know, I might be the last of the Hofstadter line. SHELDON: Doesn’t your brother have children? And your sister.

  4. Approximately reads as the following: I know it's been like this question for 8 years and I haven't read all the answers to this post, but I will be speaking as an asexual. Of course, the pilot had many tests with the characters, but the first episode is not something that converges entirely with asexuality, after all it is too broad to impose rules, but in the case of asexuals they can do sperm donation and stuff like that, like that how to have sex. You see, even fleeing the gray area, there are many asexuals who do not want sex or romantic relationships (aromatics) and there are those who prefer to continue in relationships, and often end up appealing to the act just to please the partner, that is, we can have sex, still with pleasure in the act, but it just isn't that "need", sex itself activates some pheromones that release endorphins and produce that feeling of pleasure, which can be simply replaced by a chocolate bar or a slice of cake, understand? It is not necessary, we do not yearn for intimate contact and such things, but it does not mean that we cannot do it. The same thing is said about Sheldon having to ejaculate, after all, he can do it with a masturbation, there is nothing wrong with his body in this process, just part of the purpose of him not wanting to do it, because he does not feel this desire, the pleasure of that is inserted in his work. I hope I helped you understand a little, sorry if it got too big or too late, kkk
  5. Yeah, those companies love it when celebrities give a good mention to their products. They don't have to pay, and they get free advertising. And, the celebrities generally don't mind, because they truly like the stuff they mention.
  6. Johnny donated to the area, when his, and his neighbors ranches were destroyed by fire near Rancho Santa Margarita, a few years ago. He also organized and played in a benefit concert near Pozo, also near his ranch. Except for publicizing the concert (without overly pushing his participation) it was all very quietly done, but that's the way Johnny does things.
  7. As a celebrity, yes, she is, but she really doesn't fit the idea of a social media influencer. About the only time she would fall under that category would be when she does sponsored posts, of which she doesn't do very many. If you've seen Busy Phillips' IG, she does several a month. From what I've seen of Kaley's, the sponsored ones are rare and mostly for equestrian things. Beauty, household things, etc are simply not something she promotes, except for those things she really likes and uses herself.

  12. There are various ways to do it. Some quit watching for a while, then make their way back. Others (like me) continue watching(our local channel has it on twice a night, and TBS has it on three to four nights a week. If you have HBO Max or the DVDs,you can watch whenever you want). Some draw pictures of the characters, some post pictures or clips on Twitter, Reddit, or Instagram. Some(again like me) read and write fan fiction about the show. if your interested is some links for drawings and or reading Drop me a Private message and I can pass those along. I also have a few projects I’m doing here on the forums. One, is transcribing seasons 11 and 12, so I have to watch. Another is finding out how much time each characters or couples are onscreen, so again I have to watch. Each person dealt with it their own way. These are just some suggestions.

SHELDON: Look, it doesn’t have to just be New York, that’s the beauty of it. The initials NY, could stand for anything you like.

AMY: Sheldon, that’s not how you write a thank you card. SHELDON: What’s wrong with it? AMY TAKES CARD FROM SHELDON, READS IT AMY: Dear aunt Helen, thank you so much for the lovely place setting. If my handwriting looks strained, that is because this is the sixteenth thank you card Amy has forced me to write. The muscles in my wrist are cramping, as I struggle to finish this sentence. SHELDON HOLDS RIGHT HAND, FLEXS FINGERS. AMY: Ow, ow, oh the pain, love, Sheldon. SHELDON TAKES CARD BACK, STARTS WRITING SHELDON: Fine, “and Amy”. SHELDON GIVES CARD BACK TO AMY.

SHELDON TAKES CARD PLACES IT TO THE SIDE. SHELDON: Oh, save that care, we may need it to throw it back in their faces. AMY TAKES A BLACK RECTANGULAR CONTAINER OUT OF THE BAG. AMY: I wonder what it could be. SHELDON: Oh, it could be anything. A flute, a letter opener, one of those pens, where you put the bikini back on the naked lady. AMY OPENS THE CONTAINER, AND REMOVED THE OBJECT. THE OBJECT IS CRYSTAL AND OBLONG AMY: Ohhhhhh, isn’t this nice. AMY KEEPS LOOKING AT IT, TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT IT IS. SHELDON: What is it? AMY: You know, it’s a……it’s one of those…… AMY MOVES IT AROUND, TO SEE IF SOMETHING APPEARS IN IT, LIKE IN THE BIKINI PEN. AMY:……nope, doesn’t do that. SHELDON: Oh, maybe it’s candy, lick it. AMY LOOKS AT SHELDON AS IF HE’S NUTS. AMY:……I don’t want to lick it, you lick it. SHELDON: Well, I’m not going to lick it, I just brushed my teeth. AMY: Is it from one of your dumb sci-fi shows? SHELDON: None of the sci-fi shows I watch are dumb. AMY:Sheldon. SHELDON: Okay, Westworld. But, this has nothing to do with that show, other than it’s also inexplicable. AMY: Well, Leonard and Penny are our best friends, they know us better than anyone. They said it’s the perfect gift. We must be missing something. AMY AND SHELDON CONTINUE TO STARE AT IT FOR THREE BEATS. AMY: You don’t think it’s a marital aid, do you? SHELDON: Well, don’t be silly, Amy, how is this big glass shaft going to aid our marriage? SCENE C ATOM CUT TO COMIC BOOK STORE (Stuart, Denise) BOTH BEHIND THE COUNTER, STUART ON A STEPSTOOL. DENISE IS HANDING STUART BOOKS, AND HE PUT THEM UP ON THE SHELF DENISE: Do you think when Krypto, the superego, is out flying, do you think Superman has to fly after him, with a little baggie? STUART: I’ve never really thought about it before. But, he doesn’t need a baggie, because, he just blasts the poop, with his heat vision. DENISE: You thought about it before. STUART: Oh, I’ve thought about it a lot. STUART AND DENISE LAUGH TOGETHER. CUT TO HOWARD AND RAJ WATCHING STUART AND DENISE. BOTH LOOK PUZZLED. HOWARD: What is wrong with Stuart’s face? RAJ: I think he’s smiling. HOWARD: Oh, my, God, are they flirting? RAJ: They’re way past flirting, I caught them making out, at Sheldon’s wedding.

DENISE WAVES AT HOWARD AND RAJ, HOWARD AND RAJ: Bye. DENISE EXITS STORE. HOWARD AND RAJ APPROACH THE FRONT COUNTER. HOWARD: So, what is her deal? Is she in to you, or does she just hate her parents? STUART: I……I don’t know. We kissed a little at the wedding, and it was great. But, we haven’t really talked about it since then, so I……I don’t know how she feels about me. HOWARD: Well, she patted you on the head, so I’m guessing she feels, like you’re such a good boy. STUART: Seriously, do you think I should ask her out? RAJ: Absolutely, don’t let love get away. It’s the most important thing in the world. Without it, life is dark and meaningless, and all you’re left with is the judgmental gaze of your dog, as you finish up a bag of Doritos on the toilet. STUART: Thanks, you’re a real good pal. STUART PATS RAJ ON THE HEAD, AS STUART WALKS BY. HOWARD: And now you’re a good boy. HOWARD RUBS RAJ HEAD, AND THEN STARTS TO WALK OFF.

AMY, THEN SHELDON SIT UP AMY: I can’t stop thinking about that present, it’s driving me crazy. SHELDON: Me too. The card said it was the perfect gift. But, it’s not a dinosaur fossil, or matching pocket watches, so I don’t see how it can be. AMY: Maybe we’re trying too hard. Maybe it’s something simple. SHELDON: (gasp) Like Leonard and Penny, yes, good. (2 beats) We just need to think like them. (deep breath) Okay, what gift can I get us, to express how grateful we are, to have us, in their lives. AMY(sarcastic): Way to make it simple. SHELDON: Na……I’m just going to ask them. SHELDON STARTS TO GET OUT OF BED. AMY STOPS HIM. AMY: No, you can’t, it’ll hurt their feelings. SHELDON: I’m okay with that. AMY: And, they know you weren’t smart enough to figure it out on your own. SHELDON: You’re right. Oh, this is awful. Now, I can’t even comfort myself, by stroking the fossilized tibia of a Pentaceratops. AMY: Let’s just go to sleep. We’ll look at it in the morning, with fresh eyes. And, maybe it will come to us. SHELDON: Fine. THEY BOTH SETTLE BACK INTO BED, UNDER THE COVERS 3 BEATS. AMY: Or, we go tear apart that box, and look for a clue. SHELDON: Staying up past my bedtime, and solving mysteries?

BERNADETTE GETS UP, WALKS TO THE SINK. HOWARD: If there’s a chance someone is going to see you naked, it’s also polite to make sure you’re well groomed down there. BERNADETTE, THINKING HOWARD MEANS HER, BERNADETTE (angrily): I get it Howard, I’ve been busy. BERNADETTE, ANGRILY LEAVES THE KITCHEN.

I believe that Amy and I have figured it out. Is it, a clue to a scavenger hunt, that will lead us to the actual present? HOWARD: If you’re asking if you and Amy should spend the next couple days, running all over town, searching for the next clue, I’m going to hafta (whispers) say yes.

BERT: Of course I know what it is. It’s a silicone dioxide crystal, otherwise known as quartz. SHELDON: Are you sure? BERT: Am I sure? Is basalt a mafic, extrusive, igneous rock, formed by the rapid cooling of magnesium and iron rich lava? Yeah, I’m sure. AMY: Okay, so it’s quartz. That’s got to mean something, what do we know about quartz? SHELDON: I’ll google it. SHELDON PULLS OUT HIS PHONE, STARTS LOOKING ONLINE.

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?

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.
