Valentine’s Day struck in “The Tangible Affection Proof,” this week’s episode of The Big Bang Theory, and surprisingly every one came out a winner in love…even Raj!! It didn’t look so good for Howard and Bernadette for a little while, but they’re solid. Not even Howard’s incessant video gaming can break them apart. And now she needs to find a new place to hide his X-box; the washing machine is tapped out.
So, Leonard, the self-proclaimed ninja of romance, took Penny out to a really nice dinner where they ended up seeing her ex and her ex-best friend who not only betrayed her, but decided to choose right then to get engaged. Needless to say, Penny was not happy, and she took it out on Leonard who, for once, stood up for himself and called her out on it.
In the end they agreed that the next proposal of marriage has to come from Penny herself. She’s not quite there yet, but did ask Leonard to be her valentine, definitely a step in the right direction.
Sheldon, who I thought had come so far, regressed a little bit this week when it came time to get a V-day gift for Amy. Rather than try to choose something himself, he sent out his research assistant who did an amazing job finding three incredible presents, but being Sheldon, he missed the beauty of the first two and decided to keep the third for himself. Just when it seemed like all hope was gone, he bounced back and for Valentine’s Day, to show her how much she means to him, Sheldon made Amy his emergency contact at work.
Unfortunately, that’s a gift that never stops giving, and Amy ended the episode being called to the university, this time for a possible rare spider bite. That girl really is in love; anyone else would have thrown in the towel right there.
Meanwhile, Raj talked Stuart into having a party for all the single people at the comic book store after hours. It worked out great for him as he met a girl!! Yes, Raj left with a cute chick, who I’m pretty sure we’re going to see again (spoiler alert!) Raj with a girlfriend…better late than never!
