Ya gotta love President Siebert and how he gets exasperated with Sheldon and puts him in his place.

Sheldon want $500,000,000.

He could always sleep with Mrs. Latham. 😀

As funny as that is, I don't think Mrs. Latham  would pay out that much. She's probably still smarting from his insult.

The girls were funny as all get out. The guys not so much. But that dress is so godawful it's almost spoiled the wedding for me and I so thought i was going to like it. Sheldon was sweet, but looking like a couple of swans was pretty close to the mark.

I thought Sheldon was scared of birds.

Honest synopsis:

Sheldon goes to Vegas for one minute to win money for science. Also, Penny and Bernadette take Amy wedding dress shopping, but her terrible choice entangles them in a web of lies.

The episodic photos showed the guys with Sheldon at the casino. Clearly, they decided to go with the alternate take that played out on our screens. This is not the first time that this has happened nor will it be the last. I wonder if the scene(s) was rewritten or simply shortened due to time constraints. Did anyone attend the taping and can comment on what they saw filmed?

At the start, I thought the Las Vegas stuff had potential but it was so short it barely happened. Weird editing for sure.  I liked the guy scenes except for the especially long joke Raj told that was not funny.

The time also made no sense. I'm not from Californis but doesn't it take like 4 hours to get to Vegas and 4 hours back. And that's if someone's driving him. Then he gets detained.in Vegas.  The guys were at lunch wondering where he was suggesting he had been there. Then he is back in time to see the dress. Weird

That was a mediocre episode for me, with a strong positive weighting on our girls sprouts. When Amy appeared in the wedding dress of her favored choice, I laughed out loud, because her selection was pretty absurd ("Every yard of lace and tulle in Pasadena was used to make this gown.") but appropriate! 😀
This also seemed to be one of the few highlights in my expectation watching a funny comedy.

I thought it was a good episode and had some good laughs. My biggest LOL was "You look like a pile of swans" - a great description! LOL

I know some are very very disappointed at the dress. I thought it was great prop/wardrobe humor, something this production does so well, and that it was very Amy. After her bridsemades dress and tiara I saw it fitting that she would go even more over-the-top.

I thought Penny proved to be a good friend and I could understand her reactions well.

The Sheldon plot was nice but weaker, especially the Vegas part. They could have done so much better utilizing the other guys instead of keeping them as barely supporting for the golden boy.

The girl’s plot was so much better than the guys, I’m finding the show getting less and less funny as it centers around Sheldon, the girls now carrying most of the weight when it comes to real comedy on the show, that makes me laugh.  I was also surprised that they had Sheldon see Amy in the dress, isn’t that extremely bad luck for the groom to see the bride in her dress before the wedding.  I find it funny that Penny is the main girl on the show and yet we know about Bernadette and now Amy getting their dresses and yet we know nothing about the “TWO” dresses Penny wore to her weddings.

Funny episode. Considering there was dress shopping involved I thought the writers did an excellent job making an episode that I could still enjoy.

Nobody is asking the obvious question regarding Sheldon's story. Does it reflect anything in the real world?

I did enjoy seeing President Seibert again last night.  I always thought it would have been funny for him to have another fundraiser where Leonard brings  Penny and she manages to secure more money for the university than all others combined.

It was funny all of the Scandal fans remarking on the actor, Joshua Molina, getting work so quickly after the series finale of that show,

Joshua appeared in all 124 episodes of Scandal as David Rosen.
