I love Nerds…
We start out with Sheldon at the college working when an eerie voice says his name. He goes out into the hallway the lights go out and there’s the weird eerie voice again. On the wall the words “See you in hell Sheldon” appear. Sheldon: “The scariest thing about that is the missing comma!” A skeleton files out of nowhere at Sheldon. Sheldon is spooked. The lights come back on and Howard and Raj come out of an office laughing. Sheldon says that he was only mildly frightened. He goes back to his office where Leonard wearing an alien mask pops out and scares the crap out of Sheldon who faints and wets himself. (BTW: Sheldon has one of the best screams on tv… seriously made me giggle.)
Cut to the Comic Book shop where everyone is mocking Sheldon. He says be prepared because he knows how to get back at them (I am so excited!). Stuart comes over, tells them there’s a hot chick at nine o’clock. She hits on Leonard and gives her his phone number (and I already like this chick way more than I have ever like Priya… ya, I hate Priya…)
Cut to the lobby of the apartment where Sheldon insists that Leonard opens the mail which he does and there is nothing there. Sheldon is confused, goes over to it and bam! Leonard presses a button and an air horn sound and a balloon pops out of the mailbox scaring the crap out of Sheldon again (hehehe… I have to try that…)
We go to a scene where Leonard and the hot comic store girl (also known as Alice) are on an obvious date. Hold up… I don’t like Priya, but Leonard as a cheater… I just don’t buy it. Anyway, things get a little heated and the two end up making out on the couch. (WTF Leonard… WTF!)
Back at the college, Sheldon tries to scare Koothrappali with a snake. He tried to scare an Indian with a snake… suffice to say it doesn’t work.
Leonard goes to Penny for advice… she gives him options. Break up with Priya and go out with the new girl… forget the new girl. Leonard wants his cake and eat it too… (Penny is making mac n’ cheese this whole time and how she doesn’t toss it in his face is still beyond me… he would have been covered in it if I had been his confidant.)
Back in Leonard and Sheldon’s apartment, Sheldon is trying out a prank on himself that he plans on using on Wolowitz (classic you shake my hand and you get shocked) and Leonard tells him that he’s going out. He’s about to leave when he comes back in the apartment. He’s having a moral dilemma and Sheldon actually helps him (WHAT?!) Leonard goes.
Cut to Wolowitz’s house where Sheldon is about to play his prank on Wolowitz. He shakes Wolowitz’s hand and Wolowitz falls to the floor dead. Bernadette runs to his aid, tells Sheldon that he has to inject Howard with something, Sheldon is freaking out and does it when Howard looks up at him, gotcha! Sheldon asks himself how he could be so stupid and slaps his hand on his forehead… and ends up shocking himself again which leads to Howard and Bernadette’s laughter.
At Alice’s house there’s a heavy make out session going on. Leonard stops it, says he can’t do this and that he has a girlfriend. Alice kicks him out (DAMMIT! I really liked Alice… she made comic books and got nerdy references… grrr! I hope she comes back)
We cut to Sheldon and Leonard’s apartment where Leonard is skyping with Priya. He tells her about kissing Alice and she admits that she slept with her ex a couple of weeks ago. (OMG is this the end of Leonard and Priya… please say yes, please… PLEASE!) Next thing we know, Sheldon has popped out of the couch scaring the crap out of Leonard. “Bazinga Punk!”
Howard: “Did we just see you pick up a girl in a comic book store?”
Stuart: “’Cause if you did, you get your picture up there on the Wall of Heroes.”
Penny: “It’s a rough month when Halloween and PMS hit at the same time.”
Leonard: “That’s you having sex with a guy in the top half of a Chewbacca costume. Comic-Con?”
Alice: “You’d think, but no.”
Leonard: “Well… they say at the end of your life, you regret the stuff you didn’t do more than the stuff that you did… and I’m pretty sure Alice is the stuff I want to do.”
Overall Grade: A. LOVED this episode (all the BBT Halloween episodes are awesome.) It was just too damn funny. And the fact that Leonard and Priya may be breaking up (Please God (or Bill Prady) please let them break up) just made the episode so much freaking better. I also really hope that the Alice girl comes back. There aren’t enough hot nerdy girls on this show about nerds for my liking. Oh, and Sheldon jumping out of the couch at the end… that was just the icing on the cake.
What did you think of “The Good Guy Fluctuation?” Hit the comments!
