The Big Bang Theory- The Adhesive Duck Deficiency

Nerds getting high is comedic gold.  Last nights episode of The Big Bang Theory was a real return to what made this show so great.  We got away from the Penny/Leonard relationship and saw the guys geeking out and some classic Penny Sheldon interaction.

Leonard, Raj and Howard are camping so that they can witness a meteor shower away from the lights of the city.  Sheldon stays home for some reason, and while the guys are enjoying being away from him for a night, he is enjoying what he hopes will be a night away from human interaction.  Since there was no overlap in the two stories from last night I’ll handle each one separately.

At the camp site the guys are all set up with everything they need for a night of looking at meteor showers.  They have everything a nerd could want while camping including their laptops and their satellite TV.  Since they have about five hours to kill before the meteor shower begins so Howard goes to check out the other campsites, of course looking for girls.  He comes back to report that the pickings are slim, since most of the other campers are nerds like them, but he did come across two middle school teachers in their 50’s driving a VW bus and wearing tye-died Greatful Dead shirts who gave him some cookies.  He hands them out, and it turns out they were made with something other than flour, milk and eggs.

The guys aren’t worried about the meteor shower much longer and they spend the rest of the evening being stoned.  They are either starring up at the sky making realizations about their life or they are scavenging for more food after they eat all of theirs.  Luckly for them, Howard’s mom packed a emergency brisket  so they don’t have to go steal from the Cub Scouts.  While they are enjoying it they miss the meteor shower.

Back at the apartment, Sheldon is enjoying his alone time when he hears Penny faintly calling his name.  When he eventually gets to her he finds that she has fallen inthe shower and dislocated her shoulder.  He is the only one that can help her.  Since she can’t dress herself or drive he is forced to do both, neither of which he is all that comfortable doing.  He’s never dressed a woman before nor has he driven a real car.  They eventually get Penny dressed (Sheldon peaked and accidently grabbed her boob) and to the hospital.  Of course nothing is simple with Sheldon and it takes  a little while to fill out the paperwork.  When he finally gets her home ina  sling and quite drugged up he puts her into bed and they sing a little “Soft Kitty.”

Thoughts and Observations:

  • I know I wasn’t the only one out there that thought that Penny was going to kiss Sheldon, right?  There as a little bit of sexual tension?  Not that Sheldon would have noticed or contributed to it at all.
  • Howard lost his virginity to his cousin.  Classic, as was the song that Raj was singing about it.
  • Leonard just realized that his name has the word NERD in it.  “I hate my name. It has ‘nerd’ in it. ‘Len. Nerd.'”
  • Raj wants to be the King of the Rabbits.  “If I could speak the language of rabbits, they would be amazed, and I would be their king.  I would be kind to my rabbit subjects… at first.”
  • Penny has a tattoo of what she thought was the Chinese character for courage on her right ass-cheek.  Sheldon points out that it’s actually the Chinese character for Soup.  I always wonder when I see a girl with a Chinese character tattoo on her if it really is what she thinks it is or if the tattoo artist was having fun at her expense.
  • “You keep in mind that my sharply worded comments on recently took down a muffin store.”- Sheldon when he isn’t allowed to make 1/2 and 1/4 orders of his regular dinner order.
