Or when Sheldon, who is supposed to be allergic to cats, buys 25 cats...fun fact, Jim Parsons is for real allergic to cats, he had to be under antihistamines to shoot that episode! But again, had the writers stuck with "canon" so literally, we wouldn't have had "The Zazzy substitution" which was a really cute episode; other pets could not have done as well as cats, which are the pets you usually buy to fill a void, the joke was all about that... 19 minutes ago, camelliayao said: I'm sorry if that's the goal, the plot would be Sheldon kept his birthday a secret from everyone but when Penny asked him, he told her. However, in the show, Sheldon revealed his birthday for the sake of the experiment. Actually I just checked, the exact line was "The point of this experiment is to be completely honest with each other", if anything, I think Sheldon keeping the secret about his birthday was a way to show he's a man of science lol. Sorry that line and a large part of that episode to me was just the writers catering for the needs of some shippers whose name I won't say. And there're plenty of ways to do a sweet friendship episode without being ridiculous. Also even if Penny didn't forget Leonard birthday, there could still be other explanations for him to read her diary, which leads to him wearing that carror suit. I don't know...I don't mind Shenny friendly scenes, on the contrary I like them pretty much (the kiss of course is a whole different story, I hated every second of it) so that part of the episode was ok to me (the b plot was not so good, instead, JMO) and, even if the birthday stuff was not believable, I can let it go. Everything can be made in a different and sometimes better (sometimes worse) way, but unfortunately is not our job to do it; I don't think there was a subtle plan by the writers in both episodes to indicate that Sheldon is closer to Penny than to Amy or that Penny doesn't care enough about Leonard, sometimes jokes may be funny or irritating, but they are just jokes...
