Brilliant !! I thought they were only bringing Kripke back for one episode... great news to hear he's back.

I'm surprised that Kripke is getting more screen time in more than one episode too, but it's great news. :D

"Gift from Amy makes Penny uncomfortable"? This had better not be a springboard for more lesbian jokes.

Well, from the taping report half the episode is a lesbian joke. So sorry.

I still say drunk Penny is going to end up in bed with Amy at/after the wedding. GO PAMY!!!!!!!!:icon_evil:

Already hating the "a gift from Amy makes Penny uncomfortable" sentence in the OP.

Without being prejudice I can say it will probably be another "lesbian" related episode.

I wished the writers would get off that horse already....I hate those references & have from the beginning that they incorporated that into the show!

Hope Kripke & the rest of the gang will make it worth watching the episode..

I can see Sheldon taking a beating on this one, Kripke has a lot of sass.

I hope Penny talks to Amy about her flirting. Penny is the kind of character who would bring this up if its bothering her and I don't enjoy seeing her uncomfortable.

LOVE that Kripke is going to be in it! I'd lke more Kripke, less of the girls.

The Amy lesbian thing is something I can't stand either. The only way I can like this is if they use it as a way to make it stop or resolve something so that Amy knocks it off, esp if Penny would lay down the law.

I hope not I don't get the feeling that penny likes Amy that much especially with the leisban jokes or comments it's seems to me it makes penny uncomfortable, It seems that penny tolerates amy because she's Sheldon "girlfriend" and hangs around, I'm not saying penny doesn't like her just that penny's would prefer her not to act like that and penny has never acted leisban toward anyone much less Amy, I don't know if it would ruin the show but I wouldn't like the direction and why stop there have penny sleep with all the guys, Bernadette hook up with at least one of the guys and the same for Amy, and once the show is over the writers can start writing porn.

Penny really needs to have a serious chat with her and ask if she's either bi or lesbian and if she says yes to either tell Amy that's she's just a friend and is into guys and if she wants to stay friends to stop and if Amy says no to both than penny needs to tell her that her comments make her uncomfortable and if she continues they can't be friends anymore. Hopefully that would get amy's attention

I never laughed as hard as watching Sheldon and kripke attempting to play basketball and the Leonard line about understanding why the bullies picked on them now is classic.

Just when I thought that Amy wasn't going to say some leisban comment she does it at the very end, penny seriously needs to have a serious talk with Amy about what type of gifts are acceptable and paintings of her and Amy are not especially when they originally were nude ones and what kind of behavior and comments are acceptable as well, on the bright side next weeks episode will probably have no mention or the painting up in penny's apt., does anyone else think these two will have sex? The Amy lesbian jokes aren't funny anymore or course they might not have ever been they're so uncomfortable and you can tell penny is bothered by it, this is why I don't like the character as much as I coukd constant Amy lesbian joke/comment to penny every episode if they layed off of it she might be a likeable character.

Did anyone else notice how uncomfortable penny looked in the painting? Maybe if enough of us would tweet prady they might stop having Amy act like this I know maybe a little dreaming but it might work or worth a shot.


Did Leonard forget that Sheldon can shoot so close to a racoon that it craps itself when talking about a duel and oh yeah he's from Texas?

No laughs for me in the first half, but I have to say the sports contest was a hoot. I too thought Leonard's remark about understanding the bullies was classic. Sheldon going completely insane in the new office was hilarious. Should have known he can't adapt to anything new or different.

The picture wasn't funny but it sure the hell was scary. Kept waiting for the lesbian crack from Amy and there it came at the end. I don't get why they keep doing it. It isn't funny. I bet even if you are a lesbian and hoping for something to come of it, it still is poor comedy.

I agree with everything you said especially Amy coming onto penny again, it's no longer funny if It ever was, Amy is displaying some serious obession/stalkerlike qualities, I'm waiting for her to be sitting on the couch when penny is slepping maybe even petting her head, maybe if Amy is more attractive it would warrant someone to root for it, does anyone know any of the writers are female? Wheter they're straight or leisbian I can't imagine they would write this much or think it's funny

This episode had its funny bits. All in all it was okay. Professor Rothman whoever he was, was hilarious. I liked saying rock, paper, scissors, lizard, spock along with Sheldon. I'm also glad to hear the return of Sheldon's laugh. The one in the last episode was rather creepy.

Kripke really shone in this episode. I think I may be developing an attachment to him. lol.

The basketball game was the best part of the episode. Hmmmm. Am I forgetting anything?

Oh yeah. Amy loves Penny. Amy gives Penny gift that I was totally expecting when I read what the episode was about. Lesbian joke ensues. harhar :icon_frown:

Penny in bed with Amy would be F*$%ING HILARIOUS! So in keeping with our darling lil sl^t! She should just go down the line & sleep with EVERY OTHER CHARACTER... and have been drunk each time. Ah! I love Penny.

The Amy/Penny stuff has completely gone into creepy territory. The show runners have the nerve to try and tell us that Amy only admires Penny. We get super creepy comments like the the last one Amy gives to Penny in this episode.

I though the funniest part was Leonard's "Hold on" after Howard tries to shoot down the notion of the duel.

The Sheldon/Kripke stuff was smile worthy but not laugh out loud worthy. There was no element of surprise during the contest. You knew they were both going to perform horridly on the court. Comedy is about the element of surprise, it's about shattering expectations.

Well she's gone from admired to obession I'm surprised there wasn't a painting of just penny hanging up in amy's apartment, maybe a homemade doll of her, bunch of pictures of her some nude.

This is how in movies goes it turns into someone they admire the person and then start giving them gifts like that and then wanting to spend every minute with them and then the person breaks into their place and is fearful for their life until the person is arrested and taken into a mental instution maybe this would be how Amy would leave the show.


I know she said she was refering to the panting but unfortantly for penny regarding the sponge and water Amy wasn't refering to the panting, not sure who she's trying to fool saying how they're both hetrosexual females if she's not a lesbian she'd a least bi.

Horizonrusted if you look at most sitcoms the female dates at least more than one character on the show, did anyone really think penny will/would just date Leonard you're fools and are kidding yourself, I just hope they don't put Amy and penny in bed.

I liked this episode. They have finally nailed the friendship/attraction thing Amy has for Penny. The lesbian reference at the end made me laugh, and this is the first time I've found it in the least bit funny. Amy is such a nerd and I like the fact Penny is trying really hard to be friends with her. She has a similar relationship with Sheldon, where she ignores his continuous insults and does her best to relate to him. Penny is a very sweet character.

The sports scene was a little meh. Sheldon's shorts was the funniest thing about it. I liked the naked old guy, not much of the guys though.

If you are suggesting that Penny is going to date one of the other guys, I'd say you're barking up the wrong tree here.

The incident with Raj at the end of season four is the closest thing this show is ever going to do in regards to putting Penny with any of the main guys save Leonard. Not only did the audience not like it but even the actors themselves weren't crazy about what they did.

Yeah they were livid. It was most unpopular with a lot of fans as well.

No, Penny is a very insecure character, thats why she acts sweet.

Why else sleep with every guy she meets?

Why else get drink/get drunk constantly?

"I wasn't slugger anymore!"

"What if I do something stupid and break up with you again?"

Etc.
