Taping Report    “The Prom Equivalency”   Hi!!   This is my first taping report EVER so please be considerate and I will try my best. This was also my first taping, now that I live in LA, I was

I want you guys to know how hard these ladies are working on this report! "All right, who's got scene 13?" "Oh, that's me!"

Okay, so I'm not sure if anyone has reported this yet, but there's dialogue from the prom episode that I'm not sure was in the taping report. In the scene where Amy tells Sheldon she is going up to

Sheldon's social convention applies to a lot of things. It was established early in the series that the way to get Sheldon to do something was to tell him it was a non optional social convention.  His adherence to social conventions is also a big plot point in the Prom episode.  Also, he brought a teddy bear to his barber who was in the hospital.

 

Fine I just don't see him doing it in a hospital, he hates hospitals.

Here, I'll take it out of my entire comment so you can see it: I don't remember any time where she made a statement like that(that wasn't being played for a joke, e.g. The Gorilla Dissolution).  If she felt she was too hot for him, she wouldn't have gone out with him originally, she wouldn't have been upset at the idea of Leonard with Priya or Alex, she wouldn't have proposed or have accepted his proposal.   You're taking that one statement (that I already acknowledged) and are ignoring her actions.  What other actions suggests she thinks she's too hot for him?   As far as her looking hot, I'm not sure how you can say the way she looks in a  bikini isn't hot, but YMMV.

I don't see where the poster you quoted said ,Penny was'nt hot. He/She clearly said she does'nt look too hot for Leonard (not "she is not hot"). And he/she mentioned the same thing couple of times.

As far as Penny kind of implying she is too hot/better for Leonard, whether one takes it as a joke or not, there are many instances of this scenario in this series.

And those non stop reminders of hot "good" Leonard is in the sack never seem to stop.

 

 

Edit (this post was moved from the Leonard and Penny Season 8 thread).

Sheldon also went willingly to the hospital with Professor Proton and even rode in the ambulance, as opposed being guilted into going to support  Howard by Penny  when Howard's mother was in the hospital - so he will put his fear of hospitals aside for some people - his Barber, Professor Proton and I think Leonard would be included among those he would go to see in the hospital willingly.

Sheldon could be convinced to go to the hospital for a variety of reasons.  Just off the top of my head, if he's still up for tenure and Mrs. Davis is in the hospital, he might go.

Actually, I wonder if it might be Leonard.  It looked like he was filling out paperwork as though he were checking in.  Sheldon would go visit Leonard just because he wanted to see him.

Ditto my thoughts but I am always really bad at guessing.

Yeah, I think it could be Leonard. I can't see him bringing get well gifts for anyone but his best friend.

Another big step for both Penny and Sheldon... Having to be there for Leonard...

This is another sweeps episode, right?  It could be a juicy story.

 

To me, one of the sweetest interactions on the show is between Sheldon and Leonard.  Sheldon tries not to show how much he cares for his little buddy.

Well I am kind of glad it has moved back to Thursday. I only just finished my work for the day. It will probably be an hour before I am home and I would have missed the episode if it aired tonight. I can generally watch them on VOD but I have to wait at least 24 hours.

 

I generally get home earlier on Thursdays in the fall semester but in the spring often don't get home in time on Thursday either (may be different this year).

Hmmm, theory on tonight's taping...

 

Based on the picture in the hospital and Jim's last IG post, maybe it's Sheldon in the ER.  Jim's IG had his face makeup against a glass door like he either walked into it or it was swung against him.  Maybe he was knocked unconscious and was transported to the hospital with a concussion and Amy brought the teddy bear and balloon for him.  Just a thought.

I don't think there's anything to say that he couldn't be bringing the get well items for someone else and still walk into a door.  That's just plain old physical comedy, like when Leonard was smacking into everything when Priya had him get contacts.  He slammed pretty hard into that door post in the entryway of the apartment building and he didn't have to go to the ER.

 

Unless Sheldon actually went through the door, I doubt he'd be hurt enough to go to the ER.  Since we weren't seeing an actual scene from the episode, just the 3 of them sitting around on the set, there's no way to know who the bear and balloon are for, but since Sheldon is still wearing his jacket, it seems unlikely to me that someone gave them to him.  If he were being discharged, he'd likely still have a hospital bracelet on his wrist and be in a wheelchair (since they will take you all the way out in a wheelchair, even if you can walk.)

 

I think it's more likely that he's bringing the items to someone, but that person has to be one of the others (or someone altogether unkown.)  He could be sitting in the waiting room, waiting to go in and see that person.  I don't know what hitting the glass door has to do with that, but I don't think it changes what he's doing in the waiting room with the gifts.

And maybe it was just Jim that walked into the door and not Sheldon.

Although I like the idea that it could be Sheldon, he thinks it's concussion, goes to ER with the gang, Amy gets Sheldon the teddy-bear and balloon as they wait to be seen.

But I think it was just Jim that walked into the door, 'cause surely if it was Sheldon, he wouldn't have actually walked into the door and left a make-up imprint lol.
He would've just pretended, right?

If they were pre-taping that scene he would have done it.

I think the make-up print is just a funny BTS thing, not part of the episode, obviously.  But if this segment was being pre-taped for some reason, then he would have gone through with it.
