The 21-Second Excitation (2010)

Type :   Production countries :  


Sheldon, Leonard, Raj, and Howard excitedly plan to attend a screening of Raiders of the Lost Ark that includes 21 seconds of never-before-seen footage. However, they delay reaching the theater, resulting in a lot of complaining from Sheldon. After a short time, Wil Wheaton arrives for the show. Much to Sheldon's dismay, Wheaton is ushered into the theater ahead of everyone, and the four are later denied access to the theater because of this. Just as they start to leave, Sheldon discovers a side door and rushes in. Leonard, Howard, and Raj follow him in and find Sheldon holding the film cans for the screening, which he stole from the unguarded projection room. After being discovered by Wheaton, Sheldon taunts him and subsequently leads his friends, Wheaton, and a mob of angry Raiders fans on a chase through the city streets.

Meanwhile, Penny and Bernadette have a "girls' night" in Penny's apartment. Amy, who was originally planning on attending the movie with the guys, decides to join Penny and Bernadette claiming "I'm a girl". As Amy has never been to a "sleepover" before, she searches Wikipedia to determine sleepover customs, which Penny and Bernadette reluctantly go along with. During a game of Truth or Dare, Bernadette and Amy catch Penny off-guard when they ask her personal questions regarding her breakup with Leonard; eventually, Penny storms into her bedroom. In the final scene, Amy discovers that lesbian experimentation is allegedly common in sleepovers, and enters Penny's bedroom. The scene ends with Bernadette sitting on the couch listening to Penny's horrified reaction, while musing that eating raw cookie dough would have been a better activity.

Recurring characters: Wil Wheaton as himself.

Note: Mayim Bialik became part of the main cast in this episode.

Title reference: Sheldon, Leonard, Raj, and Howard are excited to see a print of Raiders of the Lost Ark, which includes 21 seconds of never-before-released footage.
