I think it was just a joke and it was supposed to show the contrast between Sheldon trying so hard to be funny and Amy succeeding so easily. And the funny thing is that he realized it right away that it was meant to be a joke. But he missed the point because he was obsessed over it. Or at least that is what I thought when I watched it. And as some people pointed out before me it actually shows how comfortable they are joking around about something like that. If it was even remotely a possibility in their minds they wouldn't be so comfortable with it.

I think Leonard was true to himself and did not answer Penny in her drunken self-loathing state. That is not a real proposal and I always pictured Leonard doing it. Would it be a funny story arc if Penny got a part in the new Star Wars movie?

 

Amy's comment to Sheldon was funny but I find it perplexing how her character began just like Sheldon's - being totally analytical and not interested in physical intimacy. I suppose she is growing just like Sheldon is.

 

The Raj/Stewart thing is REALLY old and they should kill off that dynamic. They should have Raj get tenure and also a girlfriend, not the freaky one he's seen a few times that climbs out windows.

 

I would think Leonard would have been a little more supportive of Penny rather than tell her that the odds of her making it are astronomical.

 

I was waiting for Sheldon to come up with a hilarious joke by accident but it didn't happen.

 

I haven't really disliked any episodes ever since I got into the show last year and binge watched seasons 1-5 and part of 6 to catch up to what was airing.over the summer and binge watched all 6 seasons to catch up.

I remember Sheldon's sister Missy telling Raj that she wished he would show up.  Always thought that was a potential story line the writers were setting up for the future.  I forget which season it was that we got to meet Missy.

The Missy storyline was funny, however I think Lucy is the right girl for him. I hope we get to see her in future episodes. Maybe a plot twist would be that she begins dating Stuart as he is socially awkward and Raj would get so jelous.

not to mention that Missy is now married and has a newborn baby.

 

I did (and still do) think that Lucy was right for him, and I didn't dislike her, as some others do.

But I don't think it would be a good idea to use Stuart again in this context, they already did it with Sheldon & Amy.

 

I personally hope that Lucy will make her comeback again, maybe not this season, but season 8 I could see it happening.

Season one. The actress, Courtney Henggeler, currently has a recurring role on the show Mom.

I wanna see Lucy again, but not just yet. I still want one of the guys in the group being single, it reminds me of the earlier seasons (not that I don't like the girls joining the show - some od their storylines have been hilarious!)

It does have comedic potential.  I like it.

That would be so funny. They could also have her get a part, but she finds out it is as a storm trooper, so no one will see her face.

That, or they use so much makeup and prosthetics that again, no one sees her face.  Or, if they do see her face, no one would recognize her.

So, what the hell was that? Are we doing a dramatic soap opera now? Looks as if they are going to crash and burn Leonard and Penny again. I don't know about the rest of you but I felt that episode was a very poor excuse for a comedy show.

Actually, as real actors they were stating the truth. No matter how good you are, the odds of becoming a successful actor are astronomical. 95% of the actors who belong to the union(s) are not employed as actors on any kind of fulltime basis. That is the nature of the business.

I voted okay for this episode,because in my opinion it was not good and it wasn't bad...well very bad any way. However I did chuckle at times, Berny laughing her head off and then just stopped :D Sheldon made me laugh a little. 

This episode was just a bit of a downer, I love Amy but I can see her character is really beginning to fade, especially if you compare her to the previous seasons. I really didn't like that Penny proposed. Im glad Leonard did not answer because she was drunk and drowning in self pity if you will. 

Someone mentioned that the whole Raj and Stewart thing is old, I agree, its boring, not interesting at all. I don't even crack a smile its becoming that boring. 

I would of liked to of seen Penny's audition for star wars even though it was a random tape :p

Ive never really had a negative comment on an episode, but this one was just a bit flat.

Funny, it was not that long ago I was reading comments that there should be more Raj / Stewart interaction. On the other had why they decided to make Stewart sad and depressed I don't know. I wonder if there is not a plan down the line for some turn around for him. I remember whey he made that quick but good sketch of Penny. I kind of liked it when he was portrayed as artistic and creative.

There was the point made that he went to Rhode Island School of Design.  They certainly could give him something artistic to do in addition to   or at the comic book store that would give his life more meaning

I went to my daughter's show last night and realized, the the following could apply to Penny:

This is the Broadway version, not my daughter.
