Stuck in relationship 'hell' on 'Big Bang Theory'

It's tough to figure out which of "The Big Bang Theory" guys has it the worst after Thursday night's episode.

Leonard really stepped in it after Penny wanted to start "moving faster" in their relationship, and he blurted out "Will you marry me" while in bed.

He begged Penny for another chance, to which she responded, "Why, so you can crawl under the covers and go, 'Hey, baby, wanna go look for houses in neighborhoods with good schools?'"

One wild stag party (and Wheaton) on 'The Big Bang Theory'

As promised, Howard's stag party was one to remember on Thursday night's "Big Bang Theory."

Wil Wheaton showed up, and despite burying the hatchet, still annoyed Sheldon. Kripke was mad there weren't any strippers, and comic book store owner Stuart was just depressed. Sheldon told some wildly inappropriate jokes - though Raj outdid him.

Unfortunately, Wil's presence once again spelled trouble: he posted one of Raj's drunken rants about Howard having been with a prostitute on the Internet.... and Bernadette saw it.

Stephen Hawking pays a visit to 'Big Bang Theory'

It's been quite a couple of weeks for Sheldon Cooper.

First, he's visited in a dream by "Spock," and the following week, he meets his idol, Stephen Hawking.

It wasn't totally painless, however. It turned out that Howard was assisting Hawking, and the moment Sheldon got wind of this, he insisted/begged/pleaded that Howard show Hawking one of his research papers.

Sheldon meets Spock on 'The Big Bang Theory'

At long last, Sheldon came face-to-face with Leonard Nimoy... sort of.

Thursday night's episode of "The Big Bang Theory" saw Sheldon debating whether to open the box for a classic "Star Trek" transporter toy, because doing so would decrease its value.

He was visited in a dream by his Mego Spock action figure, voiced of course, by Nimoy. He urged him to open the box because playing with a toy is only logical.

Tell us, Mayim Bialik: What's next for you?

Mayim Bialik is apparently "on a quest to unseat James Franco as Hollywood's reigning renaissance person," as iReporter Andy Clinton points out with his question for the "Big Bang Theory" star.

Bialik, after all, has gone from acting to getting a P.h.D. in neuroscience, only to return to acting once again, with a little writing in between. So what's up next for the actress?

"I'm working on my next book, but I think I may have touched all the areas I need to: Neuroscience, acting, writing....I do a lot of speaking engagements. That's pretty much it," she says.

But then again, there's one other thing she can add to her wide-ranging to-do list: "James Franco and I need to do probably seven projects together - that would be the way to complete the renaissance path I'm on."

'The Big Bang Theory' causes a scene

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.
