The Bat Jar Conjecture (2008)

Type :   Production countries :  


The guys decide to compete in a physics bowl after finding out that strong competitors have dropped out. However, they find Sheldon's showboating too much and kick him off the team. Upset, Sheldon vows to form his own team and compete against them. The guys, in need of a fourth member, ask Leslie Winkle to join them; she rejects the offer at first, but reconsiders after finding out they are going against Sheldon, who has made fun of her research many times.

At the bowl, the guys team is called PMS ; Sheldon's team is named AA and is composed of himself, the 3rd floor janitor, the lunch lady, and her son . PMS wins the competition when Sheldon, himself unable to answer the last question, won't accept the janitor's answer, which turns out to be correct. The latter explains that despite working in America as a janitor, he was a physicist in the former Soviet Union.

Trivia: When attempting to find a replacement for Sheldon on their Physics Bowl team, Raj suggests 'TV's 'Blossom' , citing her PhD. Bialik would later join the cast of the series as Amy Farrah Fowler in the show's fourth season. Raj also suggest "That girl from The Wonder Years" , who would appear in the Season 3 episode The Psychic Vortex.

Recurring characters: Sara Gilbert as Leslie Winkle

Title reference: The Batman cookie jar ("Bat Jar") given to Sheldon when he is kicked out of the original team.
