I actually like Amy tonight. Looks like she might have a wild side under that button-down exterior.

For the record, the "nether" thing that kept being mentioned was indeed the anus.

(I studied Chaucer in college. And the Miller's Tale is quite... dirty... )

I think Amy is better in small doses because I thought she was extremely annoying tonight.

I like Amy. She's bi-curious and into anal play.

Sheldon has no idea just how lucky he is.

If you're going to bring in Wheaton, you need to put him in more than just two short scenes.

EXTREMELY. What makes it worse is that nobody acts like that unless they're mentally ill. Although I wouldn't have minded seeing the "harmless experimentation" going on in the bathroom.

Will Wheaton must have a good sense of humor to tolerate all of those accurate jokes at his expense.

Exactly what I was thinking, the plot should have involved much more of Wheaton against Sheldon. The past few episodes have probably seen less good laughs than just about any stretch of the show.

I know Penny is supposed to be a "normal" girl compared to the geniuses, but who in the hell hasn't seen Raiders?

At this point, it almost makes more sense for me to not see it.

I know people who haven't seen Star Wars, so yeah it's possible. A lot of these movies, especially for a younger generation, just aren't on their radar.

A girl that I went to college with had never seen Star Wars or the Indiana Jones series. That was over a decade ago but it's still possible.

My wife loves the Raiders films but she hasn't seen the OT Star Wars flicks, it one of the things that annoys me the most about her.

If that's what's most annoying about her, I'd say you're pretty lucky.

You're dead to me.

And I mean serious, melting Nazi dead. If you had seen Raiders, you'd know how bad that is.

It would have been funnier if Wheaton had given up his seat for Sheldon, then be the one to steal the film ....

It looks like they used a body-double for Penny when she walked away from the Truth or Dare game. The skinny arms gave it away.

Man Amy is annoying. If they're going to have Penny involved in a dud storyline then she should be wearing something low cut and they should keep the studio at a crisp 45 degrees.

I suddenly have a hankering for raisins. I also need to see if the turkey is done.

Well, that's part of it. I have run in circles that have acquainted me with basically all the Indy literacy anybody would ever need to pass for having seen the film. I get the reference without having seen the film.

Yeah, Amy needs to go, but I have to say the random pillow to Penny's face was pretty damn funny.

Also at Wolowitz's chest "hair'"

I don't like Amy but I thought she was bearable on this episode plus I like the combination of her and Bernadette. I fear that the writers of this show are going to drag this Penny and Leonard "relationship" for the foreseeable future.

When Sheldon got that crank call, I thought at first, it was Will Wheaton but it ended up being Penny.

Loved the crack by Raj and Howard about Leonard's "21 second experience"
