The Bus Pants Utilization (2011)

Type :   Production countries :  


Leonard gets an idea to develop a smartphone app that will allow users to solve differential equations just by taking a picture of them. However, Sheldon catches heat from Leonard when he tries to put himself in charge despite the app being Leonard's idea (Sheldon had named himself as the chief executive, financial, and operating officers among other high-rank positions while listing Leonard as only the founder). Despite acknowledging Leonard as the leader of the project, Sheldon continually criticizes Leonard's leadership in development of the app. After Sheldon suggests names for the app that have his name in it (the "Surprisingly Helpful Equation-Linked Differential Optimized Numerator", which has "Sheldon" as its acronym, and "Project nodlehS", which has "Sheldon" spelled backwards), Leonard tells him to stop. Sheldon abruptly calls for a vote to change the team's leadership, resulting in Leonard firing him. After unsuccessfully trying to bribe Howard and Raj to join his "rival company", Sheldon resorts to sabotaging Leonard's project by playing a theremin while they work, and Leonard kicks him out of the apartment. After Penny sees him moping on the stairs, she sympathetically invites him to her apartment for a cup of cocoa, but quickly regrets her decision. She asks for the guys to take Sheldon back, promising that he will apologize. Sheldon initially refuses to apologize, so Penny tells him to use sarcasm to disguise his lack of sincerity, an idea to which Sheldon immediately takes a liking. The guys agree to put him back on the team, but Sheldon quickly goes back to criticizing their work, demanding that they completely start over, and ends the episode having been kicked off the team again and working with Penny on an app she mentioned to him while sitting on the stairs: the app identifies shoes and finds out where to buy them.

Title reference: A pair of pants that Sheldon wears when riding on buses to protect his regular pants from dirty bus seats.
