Quotes (7)

Sheldon: Is it a party? And if so, what kind of party? Is it a cocktail party? A Tupperware party? Ooh, yeah, is it a surprise party? Oh, I hope it's not a West Coast party, 'cause according to the man on the radio, a West Coast party don't stop.

Leonard: You'll have nerds fawning all over you. If you don't love that, this marriage is in trouble.

Howard: Look at you. Willy Wonka would roll you to the juicing room.

Sheldon: Do you know what else I love about you?
Stuart: Hmm?
Sheldon: Your handwriting is impeccable!
Stuart: Thank you for noticing!

Kind of flat-lined for me. I've been watching the show's slow decline in humour this season and hoping the screen writers will somehow realise it's fizzing out and do something about it, but I have to say it's actually the worst season so far and I've been watching it from the very beginning. Truth is this episode didn't even make me giggle and that's a sad first for BBT.

I voted Good. The episode started off slow. The chemistry between the cast is still high. Amy & Sheldon's Brunch was of course the best part of the episode. Bert's opening lines were hilarious. Stuart's misunderstanding with Sheldon and Amy about why he was invited to the Brunch was well done. Jim Parson's is at his best when he delivers Sheldon's heart-felt lines. Another funny scene was at the end with Leonard explaining to the comic book convention goers, (seated at his feet), how he landed Penny.

Why can't I see this episode of Big Bang Theory tonight, 10/27?
