Raj speaks in front of Penny!!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

I was watching season one laast night and made an interesting discovery. In episode 7, Raj speaks in front of Penny without having had an alcoholic drink!!!!

They are discussing how they are going to play their games and Lenoard says they would have to cut Raj in half. Raj replies "That's right, cut the foreigner in half." Penny is in the room and Raj and has had no alcohol. I nearly died when I worked this out!!!!

Has anyone else discovered this before????????

Yay! I checked it out now! It's just after the intro song xD

''Yeah cut the foreigner in half,there's million more where he came from!''

I think they are relying on the stage assumption that someone out of frame on the other side of the room can't hear you.

They often have people talk "in the kitchen" without being overheard which would make no sense in the real world since the kitchen and living room are basically one room and not really all that far apart.

Of course, it could also have just been a screw up.

It was raised in the original episode discussion thread and two conclusions were found...

The first was similar to 4ofNs comment about being out of frame.

The second was that the writers hadn't fully realised the idea of Rajs mutism in the early stages of the series.

Very similar to the fact that, in the early episodes, Sheldon does not do the "three times" knocking thing.

well here is my take on this

Raj probably didn't realize Penny came back to the room so quickly (and she was far enough) remember in the penny blossoms he was in the kitchen talking...far away from her and facing away from her

Sheldon didn't knock 3 times in the beginning is probably because he didn't feel so close to her yet

remember it took a lot of effort to make her his friend, otherwise it would've gone to waste lol

Yeah I noticed the whole thing with Sheldon'd knocking too. Even if it was purely because they were still trying to establish the mutism extent, it was still an interesting discovery. :D

That's very true. There is also an episode where he speaks in front of her but is quick to put his hand over his mouth. And in the episode where they are versing Sheldon in the quiz there is a room fully of girls (inlcuding Penny) that he answers questions in front of. I take it his mutism is supposed to be a one on one type of thing.I just found it funny when I realised he had sopken in front of her. I'm just turning into a major GEEK!!!! LOL Damn proud of it too!!!!!

@Cheeky: I was just about to mention your second point about Raj speaking during the physics quiz, but you've beat me to it.

Some members find it annoying that Raj's mutism is not only selective, but inconsistent.

They explained that away by saying he can talk with women in the room, but only if they are mixed in with a crowd.

Hey, maybe thats why he can talk to women when he's drunk - he sees double so he thinks its a crowd.

Yep. Just included that in a post I made in the dumpling paradox thread.

I have watched this show (every episode) more than once and I just realized this as well and wanted to see what other people had to say about it. I honestly think it was a mistake that they didn't realize until other people pointed it out. It was pretty funny though

@ekap2: when the whole group sings "Someone's in the kitchen"? If it's that scene, Raj whispers his lines into Howard's ear.

I only just noticed this ! Woop

I agree with the above im guessing they hadn't really decided at that point where rajs mutisum was going. I notice alot of things changed after season one for example in the pilot episode sheldon and lenoard went to a clinic to give donate so obviously sheldon had done this before, but now touching himself down there is smething he obviously does not do. Theres loads of examples;)

Only until he gets drunk then sometimes he becomes really obnoxious.

As the years go by, Raj is relying on more alcohol to talk, I don't like that. It was hilarious when Raj made a noise whiich caught Penny's attention and said "what's the matter girl? Timmy fall down the well?" LOL!!! AND when Raj and Penny are in bed and Penny in anger says "You STILL can't talk to me??". HA HA HA HA! :icon_mrgreen:

Not sure if anyone noticed but in episode 13 season 1 Raj also says "Good Story" right beside penny. He then covers his mouth with both hands as in OOPS! So I think this was a huge mistake that they choose to leave in the show. Or forgot to cut out lol. The scene proceeds as if it never happened lol

 

Check it out at time stamp 1:32, right in the prologue
