I think this episode will have some good Lenny moments as Leonard and Penny deal with what ever couple deals with eventually money issues

Yay, a Sheldon/Raj plot! My two faves.

 

You can't go wrong with Sheldon and Raj. The episode where they fight over Raj's desk has got to be one of the funniest ever TBBTs.

 

Their meditation scene in 'The Pants Alternative' is comedy gold too.

When a show has 24 episodes a season they all can't be winners the writers are human too and I am sure it's hard to write 24 great episodes a season. The strongest episodes are usually during sweeps but as I wrote earlier this is a good Lenny episode I think

I really enjoyed Leonard and Penny in this episode. Definitely my favorite storyline of the night. The money passing scene had me in stitches. I also loved that we got to see Sheldon open up a little bit more about his internal struggles. I love when his character gets written with little bits of human/robot a-hole here and there. Good episode!

Leonard and Penny were cute tonight, how they just tried to figure out their problem instead of fighting about it.  Howard was over the top, Simon is really funny.  Sheldon's character was about as human as I have seen him in this episode, that sure was different.  Of course Amy and Raj where great.

I enjoyed this episode.

The Lenny parts were cute.

I will rewatch tomorrow more closely but Sheldon's confessions to Raj was huge and so deep for him. I really had feels in that part.

Loved Lenny in this episode! They we're way overdue for some good couple bonding. Its nice to see them hammering out these details before the wedding.

And yeah Sheldon's opening up to Raj about his career fears was so touching. He really is struggling but he's being so much more mature in his outlook. Just wow, he's come such a long way from the clueless, egotistical bastard of season 1. Don't get me wrong, he still has his moments but he's so much quicker to catch himself these days.

It was a good episode. There were a few laugh out loud moments.

 

Lenny were cute when Howardette were fighting. And Raj trapped with the rats :rofl::laugh: Poor Raj.

(Haven't done one of these in a while but here it goes)

 

Great episode tonight, I also thought that Leonard and Penny were very cute tonight along with seeing Love Sheldon and Raj have screen time together tonight since we don't get enough of onscreen together but tonight certainly made up for the lack of it with them from talking about Miley Cyrus and her role as Hannah Montana to bringing up Voyager (the probe and the mediocre Star Trek spinoff from the 90s).

 

And it was fun enjoying watching on Monday nights in the old HIMYM time slot but looking forward to bring back where we belong on Thursday nights.

I just hope that somebody will write a good adult fan fiction based on this episode about what Leonard and Penny did with the money I do it myself but can't write worth a dam. Love watching Leonard and Penny worked things out in Season 3 they would just fight and not talk for a few days like when Penny's ex lover wanted to sleep on her couch. Love seeing how far they have come as a couple

I really enjoyed it!

 

I loved the different storylines and it was good to see L/P trying to find a way to handle their money question without getting snarky--loved the back and forth with the envelope.  Howardette were funny, but I did think it was a little over the top.  Still, it was funny and Simon was great.

 

I loved Sheldon and Raj down in the tunnel.  I did wish they had kept the hug, but I can kind of understand, in terms of tone and rhythm of the scene, why they didn't keep it.  Although, I think Raj's line, asking about Amy, when Sheldon was talking about having an emotional turmoil, would have made more sense if they had kept the hug.

Still, I love Sheldon singing that morose mine song (and I love Jim's voice!), and the honest conversation about starting over, etc..  Very nicely done in the middle of all the other funny stuff.

 

And poor Raj! LOL! 

 

Loved it all!

Howardette were really funny, Lenny were very sweet, Raj was extremely sweet. I loved his advice and the caring way he was speaking to Sheldon. Amy didn't have many scenes, poo, but the ones she has she always shines in. I loved Sheldon's growth in this episode. Admitting that he's scared and that he has emotions and not afraid to express them anymore and admit that he's not on top and he's scared. And when Raj asked if his emotional turmoil is over Amy, he says no. That just tells me that she's the best thing in his life, his rock, and he's so sure of their relationship and how he feels about her. Not only is he sure of it and has no doubts, he's okay with it. Happy, even.
