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?'"

Then we had Sheldon's situation, and if his relationship with Amy was not already the weirdest on television, it was cemented this week.

Amy did as much as she could to remind Sheldon of his mother in order to take their relationship to the "next level." Of course, she is fully aware of how Freudian all of this is, and it was all somehow more funny than it was creepy. Huge kudos have to go to Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik for pulling this off.

This all led to Leonard walking in on Sheldon lying on the couch as Amy scanned him in a 1960s "Star Trek" uniform. Amy explained they were "playing doctor."

As Sheldon said, "I'm in hell, Leonard. Don't stop."

Howard, meanwhile, is probably in the worst spot, after first being relieved that his space mission was canceled, then horrified that it was back on – and two days before his wedding to Bernadette.

Then, he met Bernadette's father, and it went just as badly as expected. Though Bernadette's dad does respect the fact that Howard might go into space. Besides, as he said, "A pretty girl like Bernadette ... she'll find a new guy."

Will Howard get married or go into space? Where are things going with Lenny and Shamy? Looks like we'll find out a lot in next week's season finale.

    The contract amongst Dark Dynamite Inc. and em Productions outlines a number of targets along with a detailed publicity plan for the business. The press showroom will retain a sample set and will have the clothes integrated in editorial photo shoots for largename style magazines, integrated in ads, and spot the clothes with stylists for costuming on television and screen.

    Ok so I came up with an awesome idea. Schrodingers Cupcakes, based off the experiment Schrodingers Cat. The cupcakes will appear as Vanilla and Chocolate with a cream filling but you won't know if the cream filling is Vanilla or Chocolate unless you bite into it.

    When Amy pulls out the iced karaff and pours the strawberry Nestle's Quik! THAT had me tickled...dare I say it? Amy, for now, has Sheldon (unwillingly but helplessly) eating out of her hands...You go, girl!

    Howard and Bernadette will most likely get married in space!
    Penny will find another guy and grow apart from Leonard (yet again), or... they might end up getting married in Las Vegas, but later getting divorced after Penny begins having second thoughts about having rushed things a bit.
    Sheldon.. will remain Sheldon. Maybe he'll get drunk and finally speed things up with Amy, only to regret things by morning. 🙂

    Last night was great. Amy dressed like Nurse Chapel playing doctor with Sheldon was really funny.
