From Penny's Wikipedia entry: In contrast to all other characters, Penny and her father's surname have not been revealed. Co-creator Bill Prady stated that Penny's last name will be revealed eventually. Executive producer Steve Molaro, however, has since stated her surname will remain a secret.

As a writing device, it's far funnier to let the viewers imagination run away with the wild descriptions that Howard gives. Additionally, by not showing Howards mother, the writers are able to characterize and describe her any way they like, without having to find an actor who lives up to that description. Howard repeatedly describes his mother as having no ...

In Season 2, Episode 17 The Terminator Decoupling, it was shown that Raj could perfectly talk to women and be flirtatious without consuming alcohol. But Raj is shy and believes that He could only talk to women when he's drunk. In this episode, the four guys are on a train traveling and they meet "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" fame Summer Glau and ...

Yes. Definitely. There is a recurring theme in the show in which there are moments that show Sheldon genuinely cares about Leonard - all selfish reasons aside. For example, in this clip towards the end, you can see one such moment: Sheldon talks to Penny when she is contemplating breaking up with Leonard. Sheldon: Please don't hurt my friend. ...

Sheldon does say it, but he uses the initialism when introducing himself at the start of the lecture they are presenting: Good morning and welcome to Science and Society. I’m Dr. Sheldon Cooper, BS, MS, MA, PhD, and ScD. OMG, right? Perhaps that joke was a little too hippie-dippy for this crowd. All right then, we’ll begin with opening remarks. Miss ...

In Episode 515, The Friendship Contraction, we can see how Sheldon genuinely values his friendship with Leonard, beyond that of a mere chauffeur or delivery-man. When Leonard invokes a clause of The Friendship Agreement that allows him to be only an acquaintance, Sheldon concocts a scheme where he turns off the power to the building, then tries to sell ...

This is one of those ways in which the research on the show utterly fails to reflect how real science is done. Of the examples you listed which were presented as failures: His antarctic research is based on faked measurements This is serious scientific fraud, assuming it made it to publication, and in reality would cost the entire group their ...

If you look at this factually.... well... I mean actually LOOK at this whole thing. Words don't do it justice. Ringed by footprints, sitting in the moondust, lies a 2-foot wide panel studded with 100 mirrors pointing at Earth: the "lunar laser ranging retroreflector array." Apollo 11 astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong put it there on July 21, ...

Sheldon obviously considers Raj to be more intelligent than Leonard. It's demeonstrated numerous times. What's more Raj is arguably the most successful scientist of the 3. Certainly more successful than Leonard. Raj is very close to Sheldon in IQ. Probably around 178-180. Kripke is Sheldon's intellectual superior. He regularly surpasses Sheldon's work in ...

No. this show is not related to big bang theory. Its main characters are scientists (2 physicists, an astrophysicist, and an engineer). Most of the episodes are also made to sound like scientific theories or terms. Not sure if the directors and producers ever revealed why they named it so in any interviews, because I am not able to recall any episode based ...

To expand panthers answer, actually they confirmed that the pin has a meaning, but it is a secret. It is not only one pin, but different pins with different shape and color, but all showing an alien. You can find several discussion and theories of fans about the theme in the net, but no confirmed answer. There is a short behind the scenes video about this ...

There is also the anything-can-happen Thursday, though I'm not sure how long that went on for and when it was swapped for pizza night. It might also possibly be mentioned at some point that they visit the Cheesecake Factory on Wednesdays, but I'm not entirely sure. I don't think any of the other weekly day-specific activities are mentioned by which night ...

It was in the end of season 6, after Leonard leaves for his sea expedition with Stephen Hawking. AFAIR, it was after they return from the airport(?) when Penny and Raj suddenly realize that Raj is able to talk with her despite not having drunk any alcohol for three days. Edit: Sorry, I saw the comment above too late, but to be complete here, it was The Bon ...

The first time Sheldon asks Penny to sing the song, she does not know it, so he teaches it to her. He is sick and sings it a little off. So she sings it the way she remembers Sheldon teaching it to her.

I don't actually see anything in the Wikipedia article about Bill 101 (or in a brief perusal of the actual document) that requires film/tv/book titles (or even the series itself) to be translated into French (if you can find a specific section that does, please post it). I'm guessing this falls under Canadian free speech. In fact, I can't even find a "view ...
