Zhalen565 Posted December 25, 2012 Posted December 25, 2012 The string quartet are practicing. Leslie: I admire your fingering. Leonard: Thank you. Leslie: Maybe some time you can try that on my instrument. Leonard responds with awkward looks of confusion Later , the rest of the guys leave Leonard: That was fun, Leslie, thanks for including me. Leslie: You’re welcome. If you’re up for it we could practice that middle section again. Leonard: Uh, sure, why not. Leslie: Just so we’re clear, you understand that me hanging back to practice with you is a pretext for letting you know that I’m sexually available. Leonard: Really? Leslie: Yeah, I’m good to go. Leonard: I thought you weren’t interested in me. Leslie: That was before I saw you handling that beautiful piece of wood between your legs. Leonard: You mean my cello? Leslie: No, I mean the obvious crude double entendre. I’m seducing you. The writing combined with Leslie's dead pan and Leonard's hilarious facial reactions made this scene perfect . Sex jokes often are redundant because there are a lot of them in many shows but this scene put a new spin to it...... this is one of best example of an Oblivious-Guy/Horny-Girl pairing joke Another really funny and sweet scene from the same episode Leonard: What did Penny mean, you’d make a cute couple? Sheldon: Well I assume she meant that the two of you together would constitute a couple that others might consider cute. An alternate, and somewhat less likely interpretation, is that you could manufacture one. As in, oh look, Leonard and Leslie made Mr and Mrs Goldfarb, aren’t they adorable. Leonard: If Penny didn’t know that Leslie had already turned me down then that would unambiguously mean that she, Penny, thought that I should her, Leslie, out, indicating that she, Penny, had no interest in me asking her, Penny, out. But because she did know that I had asked Leslie out and that she, Leslie, had turned me down then she, Penny, could be offering consolation. That’s too bad, you would have made a cute couple. But while thinking, good, Leonard remains available. Sheldon: You’re a lucky man, Leonard. Leonard: How so? Sheldon: You’re talking to one of the three men in the Western hemisphere capable of following that train of thought. The entire episode is like a reference to how a character based episode should be done. The plot was pretty simple , Leslie seduces Leonard but just wants a one night stand . And Leonard is more focused on what Penny would think of it.....That's it Both the writers and actors do a wonderful job of showing Leonard's state of mind to the audience. At each stage of this situation with Leslie all he could think was what Penny would think of him . It was sweet, endearing, funny and authentic . Sheldon is also excellent with his awkward reactions to this Leonard/Leslie situation . And they also showed through Penny's subtle reactions that she does have a thing for Leonard All in all this was one of my favorite episodes of the show. Still my favourite episode to date, especially the little responses from Penny that shows she cares. Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
