Tonightâ€™s Big Bang Theory was hilarious, especially for all of us Star Trek geeks. The episode starts out with the guys sitting around talking about Spock’s conception and Vulcan mating rituals, Â pon far, and aÂ possible fertility clinic with Sarek going in with a copy of Pointy Ears and Shapely Rears [I think that was the name of the mag he came up with].Â and how all aliens on Star Trek have the same private parts and why no alien woman ever told Kirk ‘get your thing out of my nose?’. [I missed the first few minutes so I am not sure why they were talking about Spockâ€™s conception, perhaps they were discussing the upcoming new Star Trek film].
Then the boysÂ quote Spockâ€™s dying words to get Sheldon to join them in the physics bowl. The needs of the many out weight the needs of the few or the one. Works every time. Sheldon agrees to do it and holds up his hand in the familiar Vulcan salute.
Sheldon then designs the perfect uniforms for the competition. Colors are based on Star Trek the guys will wear support red and he will wear command gold. [Is he saying they will all die before the end of the episode, er contest?] When he walks out in his command shirt followed by three red shirts I got the giggles.
After the contest Penny comes in to prove who is the smartest with a bunch of trivia questions. Here are a few of those questions and responsesâ€¦
Penny: What actor holds the record for being named People magazines sexiest man alive?
Sheldon: William Shatner
Leonard: I donâ€™t think itâ€™s Shatner.
Sheldon: Then itâ€™s got to be Patrick Stewart.
Penny: Tweety Bird tought he taw a what?
Penny: Yes. He tought he taw a Romulan
When this epsidoe finally hits the net I will have to rewatch it. Thank goodness for CBS and other stations putting full episodes on the web.
