How come there wasn't a big deal about Amy trying to hook up with penny's ex?


As for the raj, Leonard and Howard at the lunch table, that's the lamest super hero rat man, as for Leonard it seems he's ashamed of himself and won't accept he's a nerd and his friends are nerds, thus he's at the nerd table plus who cares he's no longer in high school so what does it matter


Penny: oh Amy you lucky girl.

Someone's jealous

Just watched this for the first time, and this was a great episode. So, who can tell me, how did Amy go from this episode, where she seemed to be sexually aroused for the first time ever, to telling the girls that she uses an electric toothbrush? Didn't she first say the toothbrush thing during this season?

No, the toothbrush comment comes 7 episodes LATER.

Amy: You know, if being on your own is new to you, I’d be happy to share some tension-relieving techniques for ladies I’ve perfected over the years. For example, do you have an electric toothbrush?

Or maybe it's different for him when it's Amy. :)

Were the writers saving up the proof of 73 being the best number for this episode?

 

Sheldon missed a couple nerdy things about the number 73. 

 

73 is a palindrome in Morse Code, --...   ...--

The meaning of 73 in Morse Code is "best regards"

 

 

No need to thank me.  :-)

Buffoon is basically a lumbering idiot.

And bloviating means to talk at length, especially in an inflated or empty way.

 

Also, for a dedicated Trekker, Sheldon doesn't really understand kolinahr.

Firstly, it isn't used to control your emotions, but rather to purge them.

Secondly, it can't be turned on and off in a moment. It is a slow process, taking from two to six (in some cases even longer) years to complete.

Did the woman on the show. Every found out about Howard and the robot arm?  I can’t remember them ever talking about it.    

In the episode Penny walks in while Howard is demonstrating his robot arm. He even  had the robot arm give Penny a napkin. However I cannot recall the girls talking about it in their ladies night.

I agree. I've read about Leonard telling Penny in a fanfiction story or two.

I think in Son-Goku5's story What Could Have Been, Leonard calls Penny while she is at dinner with Sheldon and Amy because she drove them and tells her. And then later Howard gets "stuck" again and Penny goes with Leonard to Howard's mothers house. She just unplugs the computer to turn off the program like Nurse Althea did at the ER.

I don't recall reading about it in another story.

I knew it was in that particular story as it is one of my favorite stories. I may be wrong, but I swear with my 67 year old brain that it was at least mentioned in another story. I am probably wrong though.

If I don't immediately favorite a story I can usually not find it again when I want to.

I favorite both the story and authors. It's a little bit redundant, but that's just my way.

A few years ago, I got a slightly angry PM at fan fic.  Seems the person was upset because they had been having a discussion about a particular something or other concerning Penny and Leonard.  They were upset when they found out what they were arguing  for, was only in my "Chew Toy" fan fic.   They said it sounded rational and authentic and they took it as it actually happened.  You can be sure I was quite pleased by that.  😁

I bet you were. "The Chew Toy" was and remains a great story. It's a personal favorite of mine. It's the first story of yours that I read and cemented me to reading all your stories.

@chucky I think I might know what the other fanfiction you remember where Penny finds out what Howard did with his robot hand. It's called The Metahuman Transfiguration. A mishap during the testing of some kind of particle accelerator causes the gang to get super powers. In chapter 19 of it, while they are all at the hospital after the big crisis has passed. Nurse Althea says she recognizes Leonard and the circumstances of him (and Raj) bringing Howard in. 

Now in What Could Have Been, I think it's chapter 51 (not 100% sure) where Penny finds out about it.
