Lenny's kiss :D. "You are the lint trap of my love" I have no idea what that means lol, but fav line of the season.

"IT MEANS HE GETS RESULTS YOU STUPID CHIEF!" (Sorry 3kull, I've now made it a commitment to link to that Simpsons quote EVERY TIME someone asks "what does that mean?"/"I don't know what that means."

But random classic Simpsons quote aside, I assume Penny meant that her love was lint and Leonard is the lint trap that caught it.  Quirky but it works in its own adorkable way.

 

Quote

After S8 awful episodes. I was not prepared for such a comeback, the writing has been excellent.

 

It seems the writers are finally getting last seasons "dork age" out of their systems.

If you haven't seen the episode yet - DO NOT READ THIS! ***SPOILERS***  My favorite quotes from this episode:  "We both made mistakes; I took the last breadstick, you gushed over my ex-

For God sakes Vasu....do all of us (including yourself) a favor and just stop watching if all you're going to do is bitch and moan about every damn thing about the show!

He was right, LOL

what happened to penny's apartment....

leonard and penny could not have the common sense to sleep in penny's apartment or go to her apartment........what a bunch of dumb idiots....

I don't think I have seen leonard in penny's apartment this season at all.....

and the reunion of sheldon and amy was so predictable and lame.....

sheldon getting stuck about his song and leonard and penny getting irritated..... that was the only joke in this episode and was repeated like 1000000 times....not funny at all....

 

howard and raj story line was pathetic....

a guy picks his nose...wow how funny... ...such juvenile crude humor....from what was supposed to be a "smart" show....

Just a horrible episode. Worst of the season. The Raj/Howard storyline was  just plain stupid and creepy. Stalking some groupie fan of theirs and being disgusted when he's picking his nose. Why is Lenny always living in 4A? Did Penny not renew her lease? Then Sheldon, who has no musical knowledge ( he didn't know David Lee Roth was in Van Halen) can't get a song out of his head. Then it magically relates to Amy. Then getting back to the groupie theme of the night Dave has a man crush on Sheldon. Then Sheldon shows and Dave is rooting them on to get back together and kiss. There were a couple funny moments unfortunately they were outweighed by the general stupidity of the episode.

Wow. I did not predict that you two would not like this episode!

1.) You saw it 2 episodes ago, jeez.

2.) They signed an RA agreement remember?

3.)  You're making this waaaayyyy too easy for me.  Apparently you conveniently forgot him being in her apartment in The Separation Oscillation & The 2003 Approximation.  Or you have a very poor memory.

4.)  See what I mean about the poor memory?  You apparently forgot other things like the documentary Sheldon was trying to make with his phone.  And Howard and Raj stalking their only fanboy online.  Or you omit things from your criticisms in a pitiful attempt to strengthen your strawman arguments.

I understand what your trying to say. But this entire episode Lenny spent in  4A. You stated instances when they weren't but after watching ten episodes it feels lopsided towards 4A. In regards to RA IMO people think of that as a joke and pay little attention to that while watching the show. In regards to the documentary it was related to the song storyline. And the Raj Howard storyline IMO was pathetic. You can refute Vasu not knowing the facts and his wording can be overly harsh and negative but I agree with him that it was not a good episode. I do realize we are in the minority on this but many on here loved the episode before it was even aired.

Can you imagine the aspiring actor who gets a role on a top-rated show, and he calls his mother to describe the role.  "Well, Mom, I mainly pick my nose. Aren't you proud of me?"

Lol whatever Vasu your just trolling at this point.

BRILLIANT Episode. HILAROUS. Have not enjoyed an episode this much since S3. I thought the episode of Sheldon trying to figure out the song in his head. And then that loop into his brain, almost like it was CSI, was GENIUS. Penny was really funny, as was Leonard. Lenny were really cute in bed. I am loving how they are portraying Lenny as a young married couple this season, its so obvious they are so in love and married, and enjoying life. Yeah they could of gone to Penny's to get away from Sheldon. But A: It was night time B: They didn't want to and C: They were probably curious as to what song Sheldon had in his head. It's a comedy you learn to tolerat these things. And yes the Howard and Raj plot could be perceived as immature. But lighten up huh, yes they are adults. But they are also just two stupid kids, who are still into their gadgets and what not. IF I saw a guy picking his nose, yeah juvenile but the kid in me would laugh out loud lol. The Shamy reunion was really sweet. Not sure how one can call it predictable and lame. Yes predicatable in that they kissed like a conventional couple now, which what got me. Damn Sheldon has game lol. But the lyrics were not predictable. The lyrics to the song, that defined how Sheldon feels about  Amy was the unpredictable thing here. Sheldon understanding how Amy has made his life so much better, and he finally stood up after 5 years. I loved it. My fav bit of the episode though, was just before the Shamy reunion. Lenny's kiss :D. "You are the lint trap of my love" I have no idea what that means lol, but fav line of the season. After S8 awful episodes. I was not prepared for such a comeback, the writing has been excellent. First time since Season 5, where I can say I have loved every episode. And Dave your not going anywhere, he has been a breath of fresh air, somehow they need to give him a recurring role.

ETA: I voted Excellent for this episode. I understand some may think it was terrible. The beauty of perspectives.

THANK YOU!

I don't know you much 3ku11 but from what i've seen on the forum you're really a hardcore Lenny and you don't really like Shamy and even you enjoyed this episode!

Some people just need to take a chill pill! 

I thought the same Lenny-wise (Shamy part i obviously loved since the TR ) - Lenny look so cute, a young married couple in love, i think they looked all season like that more or less (ok since e4), but esp. in this ep!

I even wanted to say in the Lenny thread idk why you guys feel Lenny has been neglected, maybe there wasn't a 'big', major storyline for them this season, but they just look so cute/on the same page/in harmony with each other , that (in my opinion) it's totally worth it!

i'm not a Lenny , and one of the main reasons for this is, in the past their relationship always seemed too unbalanced to me. Like that Leonard invested way more than Penny in their relationship, or something like that. This season however, i am liking them much much more, because they're constantly shown to be on the same page, equally in love, always getting each other, and Penny's shown to have insecurities too (and not just Leonard).

As a non-Lenny I can say that Lenny-wise it's my fav season, i totally love their interaction in each episode (and in this one in particular ).

-Why does it really matter that much in the grand scheme of things?

-The RA can't serve a function BESIDES being just a joke?  Like when Leonard & Priya disputed it in season 4, or when Leonard knocked down his status as acquaintance in season 5.  Or about how Leonard got sick of it to the point that it caused him to leave for a short time in one episode in season 6?

-Only in the sense that Sheldon thought he was going crazy and that it also annoyed Lenny.  It was still a different joke IMO.  Whether Raj-Howards storyline was pathetic or not doesn't change the fact that it was a different joke.

I loved this episode!

It was funny: "Why are you so strong?!" "Oh yeah, he got a tuba." "You're my heartworm. The metaphorical kind, not the poodle-killing kind." "Kiss her, you brilliant fool!"

Sweet: "He is your best friend. You can trust him with your life. He's done more for you than you'll ever know."

"You're the lint-trap of my love."

Romantic: "I was living like half a man. Then I couldn't love but now I can." And of course, hot, hot kisses.

The Howard and Raj storyline was just meh, but I adored everything else!

Because just like the group rarely eats together things change. Lenny is married now. If things were going to Stay the same with them what was the point of getting married? You may be right in your instances about the RA but IMO it's time has passed too. I think I don't like the idea, and I have said it before, of Lenny ending up on their own only after Sheldon is ready for that.

Although the Howard Raj plot wasen't the best (Although I laughed at their ignorance of being in a band lol). It was nice that Howard and Raj got a plot. Reminded me of S3 when they went to that Goth Party haha.

I loved all these little Sheldon-vlog bits:

shelly.jpg.8cd3c95f2192adba7223c8a6bdab6

Telling himself that he can trust food from Penny and his gushing of how good a friend Leonard was - super sweet :) 

Bernadette was barely in the episode but still managed to deliver one of the funniest lines! "That's like taking your driving test in a bus!" :rofl: 

I watched all of the Howard and Raj scenes through my hands :icon_rolleyes: I quite like their band though, not sure why 'footsteps on the moon' are getting so much hate in the reviews tbh.

Did you even notice how absolutely adorable Lenny were in this episode? Cus they were! I would even go as far as saying the cutest they've ever been!

besides the bed scene ( which I liked but with Sheldon in the next room) Lenny was with Sheldon the rest of the scenes. kind of killed the cuteness with him there.

-Leonard and Penny no longer sleep by themselves individually.  Penny sleeps with Leonard regardless of whether its at her apartment or Shelnard's apartment.  That's not the same.

-Why is it relevant whether you like the idea or not in this context?

But in reality that was " generally" how things were in Season 3.

I liked it. The part that made me laugh out loud the most was the sound of Penny snatching the instrument away from Sheldon.

"Hey that's mine! WHY ARE YOU SO STRONG???" 

LMAO. 

Still enjoying married Lenny. They're as cute as can be. 

Shamy getting back together was sweet and I love how far they've come, but I still wish we had seen Amy on a date with a guy genuinely interested in her. I know she went on several dates so I'm gonna assume they didn't all have a crush on Sheldon, but I just felt bad for her. She's a great woman and she should get more attention. You could tell Dave was just waiting for her to mention Sheldon.

The Howard/Raj storyline was a bit creepy, but Simon and Kunal managed to make it adorable.

Penny has always been insecure when it comes to Leonard. She's always felt Leonard was way too smart for her. And while Leonard actively did more to get their relationship moving, it doesn't mean she didn't feel as strongly about him. She was clearly happy when things didn't work out for him and Leslie. That was episode 5, so they were on the same page very early on. The difference is that Penny was scared. Leonard was not as scared. And forgive me cause my memory in terms of Shamy isn't very good, but hasn't Shamy's relationship always been very unbalanced, too? Amy invested way more as well because Sheldon just didn't feel comfortable going at a faster pace. If a Shamy fan could weigh in on this, that would be nice. Again, my memory of them isn't as good. :icon_redface:

I don't get why it matters Lenny are still living with Sheldon. Yeah I would like them living alone too. But that's not the show. They are the three stars of the show. Lenny choose to live with Sheldon, apart from the convenience, they signed a RA. Right now they cannot afford to live anywhere else, nor can the show. 4B is too small. Where do you want them to go? They have no other choice. So stuff like "All their scenes were with Sheldon". Well yeah that was the point. Lenny maybe married, but they ain't going to drive off into the sunset. And leave Sheldon and all their friends, like a reflection in their rear mirror. They still care about their world, they maybe the centre of the shows universe. But that does not mean, they are going to go off live in 4B. What Sheldon is going to all crazy in 4A, and no one to respond to him lol? Yeah that would work. Chandler and Monica didn't get married, and suddenly stopped hanging out with their friends. Nor did Joey stop being so attached to them. So what makes anyone think Sheldon is going to be less then a third party, is beyond me. Lenny had a cute bed scene, and delt with Sheldon as a team. In s3 it was generally like it is now, and its no different now. Other then Lenny being married now. It's a formula that has worked since the beginning. So its not like its a shock it is still continuing.

ETA: And forgot to say, Bernadette is continuing to get on my nerves. Just her reaction to Howard and Raj. Oh why would you be in a band. OH maybe I should just marry Trent. I don't think that was necessary. She looks at Howard, the way Lois looks at Peter in current Family Guy lol. Like shes already emotionally checked out of the marrage. Sorry Howard can do much better.

I really liked the episode and I'm happy Shamy are back together.. I felt a sweet sense of "coming home" from their reconciliation scene. Liked the Lenny balance of support and frustration with Sheldon and their loving, private moment on the couch. The funniest scene for me was Bernie advising Amy about inviting Dave to her house for dinner.I need this sign:"Home is where your underwear lives" to hang under "Home is where the heart is.":girlhaha:
