Things I'd Like To See Penny Do

Recommended Posts

I like the thread Bazingafan started for Sheldon about all things we'd like to see Sheldon do again, but it made me think of some I'd really like to see Penny do too.

I like for Penny to make up her damn mind about her relationship with Leonard already and stop pussyfooting around with him.

I like Penny stop drinking so damn much or at least attend an AA meeting already.

I like more Penny, Bernadette, Amy and Sheldon all together scenes like in Agreement Dissection when they had a "girls" night and went dancing and drinking.

I like for Penny to say "I love you Leonard and actually mean it!! Along with saying " Yes, Leonard I will marry you and have babies with you as long as you agree that in case of a divorce we both share custody of Sheldon."

I like for Penny to finally get a real acting job and have Sheldon freak out on her about the new waitress serving his cheeseburger at the Cheesecake factory.

I'd like for Penny to have a fun dream episode that goes back in time to when she first met Leonard and Sheldon in the pilot. Only it switches the storyline around in the dream to what would have happened if Sheldon had asked her out first instead of Leonard and they ended up in a back in forth will they wont they relationship instead.

(I like Shenny as friends, but not as a couple. As a couple I much prefer Shamy for several reasons, but I think the writers owe the Shenny fans some love since they've stuck around so long so give them their chance to see a episode where Penny and Sheldon are a real couple so they can see for themselves how it would so not work out for those two to be a real couple either, but also still be really funny episode and give them lots of Shenny moments to cherish forever lol) I also think it help everyone finally see why Shamy works so well as a real couple and why Penny and Sheldon work so much better as bro/sis/friends instead when Penny wakes up from her dream/nightmare.

I'd like to see Penny do something nice for someone else without having an agenda or some sort of personal gain reason behind it like the time she tried to donate clothes. I'd like to see Penny actually mature and be a smarter, sweeter person and make me remember why I like her character.

I'd like to meet more of Penny's family members i.e. her mom, her meth brother and perhaps the sister who shot her husband.

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO LEAVE YOUR OWN SUGGESTIONS FOR WHAT YOU LIKE TO SEE FROM PENNY IN FUTURE EPISODES. THANKS AND TAKE CARE!

Good thread.

I wanna see:

- Penny getting an acting job a really good one (not something small like in Season 5 Episode 1)

- getting away from the Cheesecake Factory (and like the thread opener wrote see Sheldon freaking out that there is a new waitress)

- going to a karaoke bar with Leonard and singing a song together that would be funny xD

- I wanna see Pennys mom

- I would love to see a flashback from Penny in Nebraska (as a teenager or child)

- Pennys dad can come back he´s so cool

- Penny has to tell Leonard that she loves him! And she really has to mean it 100%. And she has to be 100% sober during that!

- Penny should really drink less alcohol

- Penny can go shoppping with Howards mother :icon_mrgreen: :icon_mrgreen:

I want Penny to move back to Nebraska. She is one of my least favorite television characters of all time. It's to the point now, that I will give the show maybe 2 more episodes, and if they don't make her quit being such a hatable bitch, I'm going to be done with the show.

I want to see Penny

decide what she really wants in life

attend college to improve herself

get some acting work (even a little community theatre)

be a proper girlfriend to Leonard and deserve his love

stop thinking that she is the hottest girl on the planet

She's a mess, has been for the whole show but somehow is getting worse. The worst part is she doesn't try to better herself. I do think Leonard was a bit pushy on the whole college thing in the beginning of season 2. But I would like to see her attempt it. As a current college student I have found the grades to be overrated but I have learned many different things. I see the whole world different then when I first entered school.

She's not that good of an actress as we have seen.

Is it just me or does she look heavier from all the drinking then when the show started?

As for Shenny I just don't see it. It has a lot more to do with Sheldon than her though. I think he could deal fine if it was himk with her in the current Leonard like relationship. But his snarky attitude and all his little weird must oddities would grow on her nerves.

-I want her to take responsibility and become mature

-I want Penny to give Leonard equal rights in the relationship. For instance its always Leonard who plans the dates and pays for it and stuff, Penny should make more of an effort in these kinds of things. I want her to at least show appreciation and respect. It is absolutely heart breaking to see such a sweet guy such as Leonard not getting any respect or care.

-I want Penny to do things for Leonard and try to impress him

-I want Penny to grow out of her acting thing (lets face it she sucks as an actress and the only role she would ever get would be playing the typical girl next door) and find a new passion.

-I want Penny to stop treating Leonard like a sex toy and show emotion

Let's see Penny tell Leonard she loves him and then he dumps her. Leonard has become much more self-assured and is capable of this now, not so much in previous seasons.

Also, Penny is easy to dislike. She appears to have no measurable talent other than bullying and drinking. However, let's see that turn around by developing the character so that we can see why she is this way, i.e. unresolved mother issues that leads to a lack of commitment.

Agreed.

I like Penny stop drinking so damn much or at least attend an AA meeting already.

I don't know about AA meetings but I could definately do with them cutting back on the amount of drinking they show her engaging in.

I like more Penny, Bernadette, Amy and Sheldon all together scenes like in Agreement Dissection when they had a "girls" night and went dancing and drinking.

No objections here.

I like for Penny to say "I love you Leonard and actually mean it!! Along with saying " Yes, Leonard I will marry you and have babies with you as long as you agree that in case of a divorce we both share custody of Sheldon."

I like for Penny to finally get a real acting job and have Sheldon freak out on her about the new waitress serving his cheeseburger at the Cheesecake factory.

I could go for this as well.

I'd like for Penny to have a fun dream episode that goes back in time to when she first met Leonard and Sheldon in the pilot. Only it switches the storyline around in the dream to what would have happened if Sheldon had asked her out first instead of Leonard and they ended up in a back in forth will they wont they relationship instead.

In a word...NO. I don't want to see anything that is going to possibly fuel the fires on Shenny and give it any kind of legitimacy. Doing this would actually support the idea that Penny has some underlying attraction/romantic feelings for Sheldon and would completely go against how her character has viewed Sheldon.

(I like Shenny as friends, but not as a couple. As a couple I much prefer Shamy for several reasons, but I think the writers owe the Shenny fans some love since they've stuck around so long so give them their chance to see a episode where Penny and Sheldon are a real couple so they can see for themselves how it would so not work out for those two to be a real couple either, but also still be really funny episode and give them lots of Shenny moments to cherish forever lol) I also think it help everyone finally see why Shamy works so well as a real couple and why Penny and Sheldon work so much better as bro/sis/friends instead when Penny wakes up from her dream/nightmare.

I disagree here. The writers don't owe the viewing audience anything little alone a small minority of those viewers. Besides that I'd say a most of the reasonable viewing audience knows why Shamy works well...considering that Shamy is probably the most popular pairing on the show right now and probably hasn't even considered the notion that there are any people out there who really believe that Sheldon/Penny would make a good romance.

I'd like to see Penny do something nice for someone else without having an agenda or some sort of personal gain reason behind it like the time she tried to donate clothes. I'd like to see Penny actually mature and be a smarter, sweeter person and make me remember why I like her character.

Agreed.

Again agreed.

Well I mostly just want Penny/Leonard to work things out eventually and I want LOTS MORE SHAMY!! As for the Shenny thing I don't agree with it personally and don't need to see that happen all, but I remember an interview where Kaley was asked about SHENNY her mentioned only way she could see that happening was in a dream type situation, so I was just throwing that suggestion out there because I know some people do seem very fascinated by their connection and I like to provide options for everybody not just the ones that I myself would like, but others might enjoy more in a spirit of unity type thing. Either way as long as Shamy and L/P are endgame, I won't begrudge the noncanon ships their fun.

But, perhaps your right and its not really helping them, but it be doing them more of a kindness as Sheldon would say to let the Shenny fans dine downstairs with their own kind and not tempt them with a world that is just beyond their soot stained fingertips as cruel as that might sound LOL

The problem is that dreams, especially ones of that kind of nature are often interpreted as an subconscious desires or fears that are trying to make their way to the conscious surface. Given that there's been no hint that Penny harbors any kind of sexual or emotional attraction to Sheldon or vise versa it would make no sense for either character to have that kind of dream.

The writers should only be focusing there efforts on the relationships for which they've laid the foundations for. Throwing every ship a bone will only cause unnecessary strife and would only serve to undermine what they are trying to do with both Sheldon/Amy and Leoanrd/Penny. I remember the shipper wars of Smallville yore where the writers were throwing every ship a bone. It was knightmare navagating various fan forums for that show without pissing contests erupting between the Clana's, Chlarkers, and Cloisers. As obnoxious as the Shenny shippers are now, what do you thinik would happen were the writers to actually give them something of substance, even if it completely went against what the show has established?

I say let the Shenny shippers have their fan fic and lets keep it at that.

I want to see Penny get drunk and try to drag Sheldon into bed the way she did Leonard. Sheldon will emphatically reject her. Leonard will see the true worm eaten nature of her soul and dump her. Then, Penny will take her manipulative, user self back to Nebraska. Maybe that would drive a stake through the heart of the Shenny monster once and for all.

I kid of course. Big fan!

Hmm, I'd like to see Penny get a cool job with the Syfy channel; maybe have a fling with Wil Wheaton, have another great comedic episode with Sheldon like the brilliant 'The Gorilla Experiment"; definitely a dream Shenny sequence I could see Kaley & Jim doing a black & white musical, maybe 'Destry Rides Again' they both have such comedic talent.

HeWolf, I like your idea of drawing a stake into their hearts but it would also give them steak for how they love hating Leonard and Penny.

DPK, yes. Let them have their fanfics. Besides, Prady always respond to them that it will never happen. Like, NEVER.
