The Boyfriend Complexity (2010)

Type :   Production countries :  


Leonard is flattered when he shows up at Penny's door and gets a kiss from Penny. Later, Penny informs him that her critical father Wyatt is visiting, and she asks him to pretend that they're back together because he's the only boyfriend she's ever had that her father likes. Leonard is initially wary of the idea, but gleefully plays along to get Penny to confess , which she finally does while her father and Leonard are Wii fishing. Penny's father confronts her about the hoax; then, after Penny leaves the room, he begs Leonard to get back together with Penny because he wants grandchildren and doesn't want to go back to Penny's usual boyfirends. Leonard plays along as Wyatt pretends to angrily throw him out of the apartment.

Meanwhile, Howard and Raj spend the night remotely controlling a telescope in Hawaii, watching for evidence of a planet orbiting Epsilon Eridani. Raj gets mad at Howard when he discovers that Howard invited his girlfriend Bernadette. Although initially reluctant, he starts to drink wine and even makes a phony phone call to the operators of the telescope. When an intoxicated Raj complains that "no girl ever wants to kiss him," Bernadette shows sympathy for him and he attempts to kiss her. In a slow motion scene, Howard stops Raj from kissing his girlfriend, however ends up to be the one being kissed. After the kiss, Bernadette remarks "Well, this was fun". The following morning, Leonard asks them about their findings and both act suspicious, prompting Sheldon to conclude that they accidentally contacted an alien species with the government forbidding to tell anyone about it.

Note: Penny's father's name is changed from the second season episode, "The Maternal Capacitance" when Penny referred to him as "Bob". However, in this episode, his name is Wyatt.

Title reference: Leonard pretending to be Penny's boyfriend to please her father.
