Storyline

Priya and Leonard ask Howard and Bernadette to join them for a couples only dinner at the Koothrappalis' apartment. Amy sees the invitation as Priya's way of conquering and dividing Bernadette especially from Penny. But Amy also sees it as an opportunity for Bernadette to be a mole to feed false information about how great Penny's life is to Priya and Leonard, while gathering intel about Priya and Leonard to feed back to Penny. Bernadette, who doesn't like to lie and doesn't do it very well, doesn't like the idea, but she agrees, with Amy to coach her via text messaging throughout the evening. Will Bernadette be able to hold up the ruse for the entire evening? Meanwhile, Raj is thinking about testing a new drug to help with his social anxiety disorder. And Sheldon develops a new game: three-man chess. Written by Huggo

Trivia

In The Big Bang Theory: The Cohabitation Formulation (2011), Raj didn't believe that Hindus who eat beef will be punished by having to live with cows for three months and drink their urine. Coincidence or not, in this episode, he takes medication with an extract from cow's urine. See more »

Goofs

Prya says that she shared a room with her brother growing up but earlier shows have made references to how wealthy they were and how many servants they had. If they had lots of servants, they most likely would not be sharing a single bedroom growing up together. See more »

Crazy Credits

CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #343

I've been studying up on the psychological phenomenon known as projection. Sigmund Freud explained it as the mental mechanism by which a person attributes to others the very qualities he or she despises, and cannot confront, in themselves. I've also been learning about passive-aggressive behavior. This is language and actions that are abusive but cleverly hidden behind a thin veil of civility. For example, the first two sentences of this vanity card. See more »

Worst episode of all 12 seasons
21 October 2020 | by lshanklandSee all my reviews

This was the episode that was most disappointing of all. Bernadette was pathetic for the first time and the storyline was weak
