It was going to be such a fun, geeky weekend, and then it all went horribly awry.
Thursday night's "Big Bang Theory" saw Leonard, Sheldon, Howard and Raj planning to play "Star Wars: The Old Republic" non-stop for 48 hours (as Raj put it, "It's on like Alderaan!"). But Amy informed the group that Sheldon couldn't join them as they had plans to go to her aunt's birthday party.
The writers certainly had fun with a "whip cracking" app, which the guys used to torment Sheldon.
Howard has a little advice for Sheldon: "You're a grown man. Act like one. Tell Amy you want to spend the weekend having a sleepover and playing video games with your friends!"
Sheldon ended up having that fun weekend, but then Bernadette showed up to play with the guys, and she was all "pew-pew-pew" noises.
In the meantime, Amy went to Penny for advice herself. She explained the attraction to Sheldon: "He's handsome, he's lanky, he's brilliant and his skin has the pale, waxy quality."
Penny told her to try the only tactic in her arsenal: cause a scene. But Amy didn't count on Raj causing a bigger scene.
He got up to say that he was looking forward to this weekend. After all, "Do you have any idea what its like to the be the only one without a girlfriend? Even if I get one someday, I'll still be the guy who got a girl after Sheldon Cooper!"
More and more, we're seeing Sheldon have to deal with actual girlfriend problems, relationship agreement or not. While Howard and Bernadette's relationship seems headed for more rough patches, I'll be interested to see if Shamy can sustain a long term relationship (if that's even what you call it).
