Not to mention potentially dangerous. No identification beyond a receipt from a blood bank, etc.....

So you agree, that having sex with a drunk, judgement impaired woman, while being totally sober  was not a "nice" move by Leonard ?

And btw, Sheldon did not cheat on Amy.

Really,, let's talk about a so called best friend who forces the other to sign a roommate agreement.  Sheldon first made him sign it to be his roommate, then when Priya found a way out for Leonard, Sheldon blackmailed him buy threatening to expose them which would breakup their relationship (yea some friend), then when Leonard finally broke it Sheldon tried to trick him by cutting off power to the building.  And then if you want to talk about "love of their live" why does Sheldon constantly treat Amy like a doormat until she actually has to stand her ground with him sometimes, that is what actually caused their breakup, Sheldon treating her as a doormat and her finally having enough of it.  

Leonard is a Saint, anyone who has put up with Sheldon for so long deserves sainthood.

Sheldon also let Aquaman record away, capturing any intimate activities between Leonard and Penny, without informing them they were being recorded for god knows how long.

When they became aware, Leonard, standing behind the kitchen island (naturally), looked distressed and sighed heavily, just looked down at the table. Just a frustrated sigh?! Sheldon got away easy for that one. If that were me, Sheldon would have gotten punched right in the face.

Leonard has a central role still. So does Penny. Just not so much as a couple.

 

Then there is no point in having them married.

I'm a little curious about the Shamy proposal, why did the writers make the plot with Ramona just so Sheldon could propose in the finale.  I'm absolutely no expert on Shamy's relationship, but hasn't there been episode better suited than the season finale for the proposal.

I'm also wants to point out that I have no problem with Shamy being engaged(I know Amy hasn't said yes yet, but I really don't see her saying no) because Shamy , just like Lenny or Howardette has every right to be a married couple in this show.

I've said this before but I think the way they did it 1) the proposal was enough of a surprise* and 2) the episode had enough tension with Ramona going after Sheldon** that people might wonder how that proposal will work out. Sure, the general assumption is that Amy will say yes but I've also seen some people thinking she'll say no and the most popular variation across both camps is that there'll be a talk of some sorts where Amy has questions and Sheldon has to explain the situation.

*Surprise in that they could have easily made the kiss the cliffhanger but then the episode just kept going with that montage of Sheldon noping out of there and travelling straight to Amy.

**Not that Sheldon was actually tempted as even Molaro confirms, but Ramona clearly didn't take "no" for an answer so the tension comes from the gang's worry about how far she'll go.

I think they also set it up in the previous episode with the conversation over flavorless oatmeal and kinda-spontaneous coitus.

Unless we actually see Amy for some episodes in Season 11 at Princeton then you can say the Amy going away was part of the setup as well.

Yes, totally agree. The episode was all around their commitment to and support for each other so that it's believable that the proposal doesn't come out of nowhere. Especially Sheldon's "what would I do without you?" kinda talk was all about that. And again, Molaro confirmed as much in recent interviews.

One could probably speculate that had they not come up with the Ramona thing it would have been another trigger that would have prompted Sheldon to propose.

Penny was also completely drunk and judgement impaired. Imo Leonard should have refused her and not gone further with her.

He thought they were getting back together, and didn't think he was doing anything wrong. In that respect Leonard has shown restraint. Do you remember the kiss in the episode where Leonard was dressed as Frodo? He stopped Penny because he didn't want to take advantage of her. I don't think he thought that was the case in Lunar Excitation.

Aaaaaand if you really want to talk about people taking advantage of inebriated people, let's talk about Raj and 4.24, shall we? He knew Penny still loved Leonard and nevertheless he kept on giving her alcohol. In fact she was so drunk she didn't remember a thing the morning after.

HR Woman: I called you in today because your assistant Alex Jensen has lodged a complaint against you.

Sheldon: So I’ve been told. But I can’t understand what she has to complain about. I mean, she has a front-row seat as I make scientific history. There’s string cheese in my mini-fridge, and that’s for anyone. Yeah, and just yesterday I led her away from a life of sexual promiscuity by making her look at pictures of disease-ridden genitalia.

HR Woman: Cancel my next appointment. This is gonna take a while. Dr. Cooper, you said things to your employee that you just cannot say in the workplace.

Sheldon: Like what?

HR Woman: Well, according to Ms. Jensen, you said that she was a slave to her biological urges and called her an egg salad sandwich. I don’t even know what that means, but I’m gonna go ahead and tell you you can’t say it.

Sheldon: Oh! I see the confusion here. No, no, Alex thought I was singling her out. No. I meant that all women are slaves to their biological urges, you know? Even you. You’re a slave.

HR Woman: I’m a what?

Sheldon: Well, y-you, I-I’m just saying, you know, at a certain point in a woman’s menstrual cycle…

HR Woman: Whuh-ah! Woah! You can’t talk about that, either, Dr. Cooper. Your language is entirely inappropriate, and I’m gonna advise that you shut your mouth right now.

Sheldon: I don’t see why I’m the one being persecuted here. Dr. Hofstadter, he was bragging about his sexual desirability to anyone who would listen. You know, and Howard Wolowitz, he spent two years using university resources building a six-breasted sex robot. Oh, and at the office Christmas party, I heard Rajesh Koothrappali refer to you several times as Brown Sugar.

HR Woman (writing): Hofstadter… Wolowitz… and the last one was Rajesh Koothrappali?

Sheldon: Yes. No, yeah, but in his defense, that wasn’t racist. He’s also brown.

I don't know how anyone can disagree Sheldon is more of a jerk then Leonard. When he has been an ass to pretty much everyone the entire series. It is pretty obvious, but anyway. It is actually a fact. If you look at the cannon of the show. I was simply stating Sheldon is a jerk, because I presumed everyone knew that was common knowledge in this show. But apparently not. And yeah sure you can shift focus away from Sheldon. And go on about Leonard and the other characters flaws and traits. Still doesen't make Sheldon any less of a jerk. When through out the course of the series. Their is pretty solid evidence to suggest his consistent need to dismiss people, just look at how he degraded Howard through out the series. His constant need to diminish anything Leonard does. His constant need for his ego to brushed, because it is so over inflated. That Sheldon is the biggest jerk of all in this show. But moving on. 

As for the 3.23 again. Leonard diddn't take advantage. He thought they were getting back together. As established early next morning. Penny was in the wrong imo. Well they both were. It is like Leonard with Dr Plimpton. He is a nerd, and they portrayed him like one in those instances. But this is old news. I could also bring up Middle Earth Paradigm when Leonard turned down a drunk Penny. But whatever, long hiatus this is going to be LOL.

They have all been jerks, this discussion really is pointless. I can't see what at all it will achieve? You won't find a consensus.

I don't understand the question.  :scratchhead:(I'm avoiding saying Leonard wore her down :wink:).

It seems like a natural progression in a series that has been on the air for 10 years. Also, Penny makes fist fulls of money. If she is not connected to Leonard what is she doing slumming in a building that has had a broken elevator for more than 10 years. Not like she is a struggling actor/waitress anymore.

Maybe she loves her strawberry Pop Tart :icon_cheesygrin:. Besides I think their is more evidence since Season 7, that Penny wore Leonard down. She did propose after all. A few times actually. i agree Penny stayed their for ten years because of Leonard. Other wise why would she stay in that apt. As a struggling actress/waitress going no where? And if she is not connected to Leonard anymore. Seeing she has a load of money now, why stay their with him in that building? So yeah It is the same as how does a struggling actress afford the same apt as Two Succesfull Physicists? It has to be sold to the audience. Penny would of moved out a long time ago, if it wasen't for Leonard. Leonard kept Penny in the series. 

i was wondering with a hiatus. Well this forum, well the mods be doing an episode tournament again? They were always fun. And good time killer before the premeire taping.

Yes, there will be an episode Tournament.   Also, I'll be doing the top 10 moments for Shamy and Lenny again, with number 1 being posted the night of the first taping.

It's interesting how this space is such a microcosm. Thank you all.

I hadn't heard that suggestion about Leonard before*. It's a provocative position that I hadn't considered prior. A little vexed, but interesting. I must stop my wife from bringing home the Chardonnay. I now doubt my own motives and perhaps the last 28 years of Saturday nights. Or something. I will not, however, ask the children to return their noise cancelling headphones. 

I'm not really that big on the keeping track but I do think the elbows got a lot sharper (the show escalated) from at least Itchy Sweater. I don't think Leonard is Satan and I do think Sheldon is a huge ( and  apparently aesthetically pleasingprick. You just have to hear what he says, see what he does and be convinced he believes it.  Then you make your choice on how to respond.

Still, as @Jenafan says, the whole show survives because these idiots all forgive each other. At least that's one decent lesson to take from it.

*(not the Hitler thing, the other thing^)

Edit: ^ my youngest daughter thinks Leonard should have made her a cup of tea and talked her out of it, if he were to be the better person. Bad show! How'd it ever get so popular?

The "HR Woman" was called Mrs Davis, and was quite a significant character, altho' she only appeared in 4 episodes. Pity we don't see her any more. I think she'd be more fun than Bert, for example.
