The Lunar Excitation (2010)

Type :   Production countries :  


The guys set up an experiment on the building's roof to bounce a laser off the moon and back to Earth. Leonard thinks Penny might enjoy that, so he goes to get her, only to find she has male company. Penny and her date accompany them to the roof to observe the experiment. However, in the course of doing so, Penny's date demonstrates himself to be extraordinarily dimwitted. Later that night, Penny gets drunk and sleeps with Leonard but realizes it was a mistake the next morning. Twice, Leonard attempts to convince someone to sleep with him, but ends up getting turned down, leaving him confused.

Meanwhile, Howard and Raj submit an online dating site profile for Sheldon that surprisingly results a match. Sheldon believes dating sites to be "hokum," and refuses to meet the woman the site found for him. After Raj and Howard blackmail Sheldon by hiding a dirty sock in his apartment, they meet his match, Amy Farrah Fowler .

Afterwards, Howard comments "Good God, what have we done?"
