Leonard "fell in love" one month after meeting her.  Penny did not, she was being impulsive. 

This spat is on Leonard.  After all these years, with them not always being on the same page, it is unreasonable for him to have a hissy fit over this.

You are totally wrong, IMO. Of course it is absolutely appropriate for Leonard to have a hissy fit over this. It was their first kiss, and he is the man she ended up marrying, isn't he? Aaaand she did seem to remember the vomiting, right? Furthermore, she actually did remember their first kiss, and I am sooooo glad that the episode proved I am right.

It was a month since they first met, Leonard was infatuated, he wasn't in love.

First of all that's mere speculation on your part, and secondly what does that have to do with what we are talking about? Absolutely nothing.

Yes, but for me, it's not (yet) as bad as with Sheldon.

You are sooooo right. If I was a Sheldon fan I would be so pissed at the writers. What they have done to Sheldon in unconscionable.

Totally agree! Leonard, whether it was love or infatuation, is up to the each person's interpretation. Anyway you look at it infatuation is a form of love.

All of it is writers BS.   BTW:

Season two, Leonard wasn't dating anyone, Halloween was a month before Leonard started dating Stephanie

Season three, Leonard was with Penny and  Halloween was well before they broking up in April.  

Season four,  Leonard wasn't dating,, Halloween was three months before Leonard Started Dating Priya.

You might have a point in Season 5, Leonard broke up with Priya around Halloween.  

The rest of it, 👍

But besides that, the fact that she had Halloween parties and didn't invite him is bullshit. I mean how did Leonard (and the rest of the guys) not know? I mean living across the hall, I think it is pretty impossible.

Yeah, especially with Sheldon's "Vulcan" hearing. He can hear Penny's toilet flushing's and her "Oh God's" during coitus! :hi:

Watched the promo for the next one and it's interesting to see if they are setting up a Leonard story arc with the new responsibility given to him by the University department or if it's a one and done episode.

Will he keep this responsibility and still have it by episode end? Who knows, I could see it going either way, having four close friends working at the same university and presumably all angling for potential funding for whatever they are working with is probably going to be a dilemma.  If he gives it one then it could cause problems, or will he try and look at it from the standpoint of which work needs funding more or which is more likely to reward results and just needs that little bit extra funding to achieve that.

I believe Kripke might be in this one as well, maybe he's the person who ultimately gets it?  Leonard gets tired of badgering from his friends so he chooses Kripke instead to get the funding?

Maybe this view will shed some light on the whole thing.

Thanks, Kripke's work is the only one I see that linked to a character we know.  I wonder could the telescope software be something to do with Raj and Howard? Sure looks like Howard's 'show me the money' is after some sweet funding in the promo lol.

Thanks for that pic @veejay , it definitely gives me some things to ponder before next week's episode 👍

I really doubt Kripke will get it or Sheldon. Kripke wastes his funding on non university items. Sheldon just needs white boards and flavored markers. We'll have to wait and see what Leonard does!

The middle one mentions that Biology is already well funded already in the cons, could this be something to do with Amy's field?

Howard may just be joking, maybe he doesn't have anything to do with it. The telescope software could be related to Raj. But there are many others other than Leonard's three close friends, it doesn't seem to be a battle between the three. Leonard seems to be doing a thorough job. I'm expecting him to be having a hard time trying to make the right decision, and this is something the writers can use to turn it on him and end it. Based on the show's history I'd say it well may be one and done, with Leonard screwing up. I would like them to keep with it and have him get ahead in the university. Be it having some role making funding-related decisions or eventually becoming department chair, I think there is good comedic and character growth potential there.

I'd also like to see Penny be supportive and helpful:firstmove:

Totally agree with you, just some really poor writing from the writers again.

If I remember correctly, Penny has solved quite a few other problems. 😁

But not her dear husbands. I remember her having things added to the roommate agreement for her husband to do, behind his back no less. That confrontation was never resolved if I remember correctly.

 C++ ended up in the con column for the telescope software. Hmmm.

At least we get a reminder that these guys work in a physics department.

It's between Kripke, Koothrappali and Lee. See the left board.

That’s my major gripe with the show as a whole. Is the lack of science in the show since s6. I really miss the guys doing an experiment.
