Yes, you are right. I was stretching it. Compared to Howard he was tame. On the other hand he was confused and conflicted about Alice when he thought he and Priya were still an item. His relations with Plimpton and  Mrs. Latham kind of indicate a willingness to sleep with anyone that was human, willing and still breathing. 

Not always. Remember Joy?

Yeah,I think Leonard and Joy was just for sex for both of them.

I have always seen written in tbbt sources I know "Amy Farrah Fowler" 

If I am not wrong( surely someone will correct me if I am) , Farrah is likely to be Amy's mother's maiden name.

I don't know for sure either, but I think Farrah is her middle name, much like Sheldon's is Lee: Amy Farrah Fowler and Sheldon Lee Cooper.

Then Professor Proton should have been played by Norman Noname. Or Wil Weaton could have been played by Bill Barleycorn. Big name guest stars are a thing. You use them during sweeps.

Pretty hard for Wil Weaton to be played by Bill Barleycorn since he plays a slightly exaggerated version of himself.

I wonder why the other cast members have semi normal middle names, Farrah, Lee, Joel to name a few. Leonard gets stuck with Leakey. How messed up is that. I know he's named after a famous scientist. Surely Beverley and Alfred didn't give too much thought to how much hell their son would go thru with that name or they just didn't care.

I don't know anyone outside my immediate family that knows my middle name.

That's you. Not too many know mine. I guard it religiously. Our favorite writers seem to enjoy letting Leonard's name out at different times. It's in the name of comedy.

When? I can't recall the last time. Amy has always has three names. We know Sheldon's middle name because it has been mentioned. 

How often has Lenard's middle name been mentioned on the show?

Several times. When, heck I don't  remember. I don't have an eidetic memory like Sheldon. I do know that Sheldon has mentioned it at least once revealing he was named after a famous Anthropologist and Alfred's mentor. If you need other times, you can look them up because I just don't care.

I guess your right leonard isn't a saint or a monk but he does seem like a normal male looking for the right woman. I personally don't think that makes him a bad person but i guess we won't agree

Oh, I don't think he is bad! He usually tries hard to be good. Sometimes he is a (as Sheldon says) a slave. He did not even like Joy.

Basically looking for sex as was Joy.

I think of the time between when Lenny broke up in Season 3 and got back together in Season 5 as Leonard's wondering through the wilderness phase of his life.  😜

Sheldon is a slave in other ways and hardly perfect. I'd much rather spend an evening with Leonard.

Sheldon thinks everyone is a slave to him. At least now Leonard has a mistress to do things for. Sheldon now has Amy to do his bidding.

While that might be true it is not what Sheldon was talking about.

I agree with Penny on at least one item, that is Leonard spends way too much time playing video games. As does all the guys.

I know. That's my thoughts.

More so to his:

  1. OCD
  2. failure to see others as equals or even competent
  3. fear of failures
  4. inability to have normal relationships

You're probably right. Thanks for that!

Sometimes full names, such as Howard Joel Wolowitz are used to emphasise  the seriousness of what's being said.

Just wondering which wedding date is Lenny celebrating for their anniversary? Is it the one from Season 9 or Season 10, or both?

It seems like none, but I guess the anniversary they were talking about in 11×01 was their original wedding.

 

 

And happy birthday @Zhalen565!

As Leonard explained:-

my parents felt that naming me Leonard and putting me in advanced placement classes wasn't getting me beaten up enough.

Mary does it with Sheldon too.

And sometimes I think it's just done for comedic effect, as in Bernadette Maryann Rostenkowski-Wolowitz.

Boy that's a mouthful. 😊

As I said, Alfred and Beverley didn't care about the grief their son suffered. Beverley's only response was Buck up sissy pants. I'm wondering if they treated Michael and his sister the same way? I think not as she is always praising them and putting Leonard down. Although Alfred seems to have softened over the years.
