meka3000 Posted April 21, 2015 Posted April 21, 2015 I caught this last night. One thing: If Penny makes all that, why hasn't she moved? Why would she move? And she really needs to work on her communication. I think its a combination of that and learning about what SHOULD be talked about financially. I don't think she's quite figured that out yet. Remember in the Hookup Reverberation when Leonard went to ask Penny about him investing in the comic book store? She didn't think that was a big deal. She used to tell Leonard everything. Really? I don't remember her telling Leonard her fears about how she thought Leonard might grow bored of her in a relationship in The Bad Fish Paradigm. Remember the little kitten and the hobbit on the couch and the first, drunken, kiss. And the ogre at the door. What happened? Different time period and different set of circumstances. Penny only goes to Leonard when all things fall apart. And most of the time it's when she takes advice from Sheldon (you would think she had learned her lesson by now.) There's only been one time in recent memory where she took advice from Sheldon, and when she quit her job Sheldon had NOTHING to do with her making that decision. but always in the end they show that Leonard was right all along its just that the writers choose not to acknowledge it or penny. Why do the writers need to spell this out and spoon feed their audience? Making Leonard looks like he doesn't support her dreams. Just like when he bought her that car so she wouldn't have to go back to working at the cheesecake factory. Remember what penny said to bernedette about all the downsides of acting, that's exactly what Leonard was getting at, but poor Leonard. You don't think that wasn't a sign that some of what Leonard said got through to her? Penny will never admit he was right even though she knows it. Always wanting Leonard not to see her as a failure or making bad decisions. It's part of her insecurities, she still has them. Just like Leonard has his own insecurities, they'll still be there. Doesn't mean neither can't overcome them. I hope he grows a pair one day and stand up to her and put Penny in her place or she is just going to keep walking all over him. So Leonard needs to tell Penny how much of a stupid woman she is EVERY TIME she screws up? THAT is your idea of "standing up to her"?
