  1. Hells, yeah! Just like Schrodinger's Cat We're Alive! And I think we're pretty fierce and fabulous too!
  2. It's not Valentine's Day but a good day for any Lenny sexy dance! http://www.jibjab.com/view/9IQO9lhDS3-pyUBozaYj-w?utm_campaign=URL+Copy&utm_content=male_striptease_vday&utm_medium=Share&utm_source=JibJab&cmpid=jj_url
  3. You know, I've had more fun and laughs with all the people here on this thread than I have had in the past three years of the show. At this point, it's easier for me to leave the show than this Forum.
  4. Yeah. I know. That surprised me too. Maybe it's because we're not listed as a 'Ship Zone'?
  5. For Penny's career, I want to see her go back to The Cheesecake Factory. But not as a waitress. Just imagine if Leonard and Penny (or the gang) stops there for dinner one evening and the service is abysmal, the wait staff is goofing around, the manager is harried, running around and completely ineffective. With a unique insiders view to how things should be run and better managed, I can just see Penny taking over, issuing orders from her table: to a waiter -- 'The couple at Table 2 asked for tea like ten minutes ago. Until now, I could see that they were enjoying their meal. If you want to salvage any portion of your tip, get it to them now, along with a piece of free cheesecake thrown in.' From her seat at the table, I can really see her like a general approaching D-Day, running the place with great efficiency and planning as she calls out directions and suggestions to the staff. Her talent wouldn't be wasted on the harried manager who hire her for her managerial skills and human insight on the spot. I've always enjoyed our time at The Cheesecake Factory. We always had a lot of laughs there. TPTB did the humor of the show a great disservice by excising it from the line-up and making Penny a pharmaceutical rep where the only laughs came from the wonderful Stephen Root who was afraid of Bernadette. After that, zero laughs in pharmaceutical sales. The humor could return, if, Penny as a manager, has to manage a group of surly, unqualified wait staff. Like Stuart had with Dale, his incompetent stand-in at the comic book store (loved Dale! Need more Dale!), we could get some of that, Penny overseeing and managing a group of Dales. I think that could bring back some of the missing humor. Not that I want even less time given to the cast but, at those times, when we did visit Penny at work, at least it will be fun and memorable. And it would serve another purpose. Those in the cast who are not written as geniuses are struggling: Penny and Stuart (Raj's struggling is self-inflicted). The everyday people of ordinary intelligence who bring warmth and street smarts are not succeeding. Maybe Penny could bring her managerial flair to Stuart's store and make it successful and we'd have a happier, more confident Stuart as well as more happier, more vibrant Penny.
  6. ^^^^^ Very, very clever of you, veejay! The last line of that exchange, you gave us a gif! Very, very clever!
  7. Sheldon also let Aquaman record away, capturing any intimate activities between Leonard and Penny, without informing them they were being recorded for god knows how long. When they became aware, Leonard, standing behind the kitchen island (naturally), looked distressed and sighed heavily, just looked down at the table. Just a frustrated sigh?! Sheldon got away easy for that one. If that were me, Sheldon would have gotten punched right in the face.
  8. Sheldon also surprised Leonard and Penny by letting a homeless guy live in his old room.
  9. Completely agree. I really like having a Lenny shipping place where we can come and safely rant and vent when we are as mad as hell and cannot take it anymore. Our frustrations won't muddy the positive and supportive waters of our original shipping thread. I vote this very necessary thread moves with us throughout the seasons.
  10. Ouch!
  11. Non-Show Discussion

    Happy Mother's Day to all glorious women out there, even those that may be childless, who loved, influenced, supported, encouraged, fought for, shaped, and who acted a role model for all our children! It truly does take a village!
  12. I really love the top photo -- the protective arm thrown across Penny -- when Leonard spots the stranger in their apartment (courtesy of the codge monkey across the hall).
  13. They will. I'm convinced that it will be touted as 'A Big Bang Theory Event! So BIG it takes TWO EPISODES to fill!'
  14. Stand out comments for me: 'this season hasn't been the show's best'; 'an increasingly tired series'; 'recycling the same conflict we'very seen so many times'; 'usual formula is that Sheldon isn't particularly put out by Amy's absence'; 'but as too often the case with this show, more could have been done'.
  15. I like to think that he dared to speak the truth inside their echo chamber and did not act like a sycophant and told them that what they were writing was total crap.
