BBT, Big Bang Theory, Howard Wolowitz, Leonard Hofstadter, Penny, Raj, Sheldon Cooper, Valentine's Day -

"Positional Good"


Of the three TV shows we currently cover, I think the Big Bang Theory has the least pronounced Valentine’s Day tradition. Being the youngest series isn’t an excuse—they haven’t done without, though they don’t have a steadfast attachment to romance, like F.R.I.E.N.D.S and their lobsters, or How I Met Your Mother and their blue French horns.
Or do they? 

Hear the scientists’ take on the Hallmark holiday--and perhaps wonder how the girls would respond.

Episode 15 of season three, The Large Hadron Collision, was the big Valentine’s Day show-stopper, where Howard took Bernadette on their first Valentine’s Day date—to the “$39.95 lover’s special at P. F. Chang’s.” Nothing says romance like getting your picture on top a Chinese marble horse; question is, how does one plan on getting down from one of those giant things? 

Raj buys one rotisserie chicken and eats it over his sink like a “wild animal.”
Okay Raj.

And of course, this was the episode where Leonard Hofstadter got to go to Switzerland and attend a conference with CERN, along with seeing the world-famous Large Hadron Collider. The event coincided with Valentine’s Day and, true enough, Switzerland would have made a picturesque couple’s setting. If Penny had made it at all. Sheldon and Penny both stayed home sick, and Leonard spared Raj from his chicken-guzzling ritual.

Sheldon’s opinion of the whole holiday affair? I think the direct quote would best serve:

“Given that Saint Valentine was a third century Roman priest who was stoned and beheaded, wouldn’t a more appropriate celebration of the evening be taking one’s steady gal to witness a brutal murder?”

Sheldon and Amy connect on many levels, but something tells me this one is a little over their heads.

I’ll stick with my lobsters and French horns, thank you very much. If you want to prove your devotion to your special someone, remember that Cool TV Props ships worldwide!
