You knew it was going to be bad news when Sheldon was forced to go on vacation from the university on Thursday night's "Big Bang Theory."
Of course, Sheldon couldn't bear to be away for a whole week, so he snuck into the back of Leonard's car. Leonard promptly turned the car around, once he found out (in the midst of singing along with the Black Eyed Peas, something Sheldon couldn't stand to hear).
Then Sheldon decided he could spend his vacation helping Amy out in the lab. He just loved the sound and smells of a lab as part of his vacation (a vacation which is pretty much from his other lab).
"I'm excited to work with my boyfriend. It's going to be romantic," said Amy.
"Way to kill the mood," said Sheldon.
However, it turned out that Sheldon wasn't too great doing menial tasks around the lab either, and Amy enjoyed taking him down a few pegs.
In the meantime, there is once again trouble in paradise with Hernadette (Boward?). Howard was nervous when Bernadette brought up the idea of a pre-nup.
After much hemming and hawing, Penny set him straight, in one of the best monologues in recent memory: "All right, Howard Wolowitz, listen up. You sign anything she puts in front of you, because you are the luckiest man alive. If you let her go, there is no way you can ever find someone else. Speaking on behalf of all women, it is not going to happen. We had a meeting."
Howard then agreed to meet Bernadette's father, and she warned him not to bring up a laundry list of topics, and to head for the hills if her dad started getting strangely quiet (yelling was okay).
I look forward to seeing how that goes. That and the fact that Howard's mission is in May is a bit of a preview of what to expect for the season finale: Howard in space!
What did you think of this week's episode? It was one of the better Sheldon episodes this season, I thought. Share your view on iReport or comment below.
