I loved the fact that when even a charming nerd gets the chance of a lifetime, he doesn't even know it.

Howard and Leonard in a bar was just painful. They need to be careful to keep Howard from being to pathetic. I actually think Leonard would have had a shot if he wasn't following Howard's lead.

That was a nice touch, and arguing over Batman instead, even better.

Howard was over the top but I thought it was too funny to mind. If you spot one with a seeing eye dog, she's mine. I liked when he tried the accent to no avail.

Wow, so if you get a date with Penny, you're pretty much guaranteed a lay. Nice girl.

Whoa! Maybe some making out, but not that.

Anyone else want to defend Penny's honor? For a really easy girl, check out Robin of How I Met Your Mother.

EXCELLENT

"Is this a good book?"
"Yes, assuming he's read Infinite Crisis and 52 of course."

Ditto on Penny's "coffee line"

Love the close to with Guthar Pauly in bed with the large white gal.

I really liked this episode. While even an average TBBT is better than a lot on TV this episode was one of the best in a while.

I also agree that Penny was likely only going to try some making out with him. After all we know she and Leonard went out and he didn't get laid. Therefore calling Penny easy is not only unfair its wrong based on what we know.

Robin on HIMYM though is I agree.

Gotta give them props for mentioning DS9. I was howling with laughter! Also - "Captain Sweatpants"

He did, nearly at least, if he had kept his mouth shut.

It was definately DC heaven...

But I have to say; with the muliverse back again, I am happy. I loved the different earths back in the day. The JLA/JSA crossovers were an annual tradition that made each summer fun to look forward to
