The Grasshopper Experiment (2007)

Type :   Production countries :  


Raj introduces his parents, Dr. and Mrs. V.M. Koothrappali , via webcam to his friends. However, Raj immediately becomes overwhelmed after his parents try to arrange a date with Lalita Gupta , a childhood friend, as he cannot talk to women. Meanwhile, Penny takes up bar tending for some extra money. As she practices mixing drinks with the guys, they discover that after a few drinks Raj can actually talk to women. They decide the date should be at Penny's restaurant, so she and the guys can keep an eye on Raj's behavior while drinking.

However, on his date Raj becomes very obnoxious, and Lalita ends up leaving with Sheldon, who compliments her by comparing her to Princess Panchali, an Indian princess in a fictional fairy tale. Back from the restaurant, Raj tries to explain to his parents what happened. Even though he is already upset, things become worse when his parents find out he was drinking.

Recurring characters: Brian George and Alice Amter as Dr. and Mrs. V.M. Koothrappali

Note: This was the last episode aired, prior to the 2007-2008 Writers' Strike.
