I loved this episode! Can Big Bang bring back Amy's fan fiction writing? It was hilarious and such a tease! Better than 50 Shades of Grey!

Can anyone find a photo of the cat meme from this episode? I'm having no luck.

This was one of the best episodes of the season. Leonard and Sheldon working together was wonderful. The girls story was great too. Bernie was funny and Amy fan fiction was touching. Stephen Hawking as the guys' internet bully was priceless. Well done!

Loved this episode. Showed Leonard's geeky side, which has been getting lost lately. Was impressed that Dr. Hawking would be a part of the show again. Sheldon needs a good foil.
