The Roommate Transmogrification (2011)

Type :   Production countries :  


During another night out at the Cheesecake Factory, the guys and Penny make fun of Leonard because of his lactose intolerance, however, when Bernadette announces that her dissertation has been accepted, earning her a Ph.D. and a well-paid job, Leonard seizes his chance and starts to mock Howard with the other guys, degrading him for being the only non-doctor in their group. Later, Bernadette decides to buy Howard an expensive Rolex watch as a present and tells him to "let her worry about the money", a comment that deeply disturbs Howard. Meanwhile, Leonard's and Priya's noisy sexual encounters annoy and disgust Raj, as they always hang out at his apartment because of Sheldon. When Priya wears his Halloween Lieutenant Uhura costume during a Star Trek sex fantasy, he leaves and spends the night at Sheldon's apartment (after a short visit to Howard's place, where his mother creeped him out). When Leonard finds him in his bed the next morning, he apologizes and proposes that Raj moves in with Sheldon until Priya finds her own place. Raj immediately takes a liking to the idea, and, after Sheldon's usual bureaucratic procedures (including a modified "temporary roommate agreement" and a will), he moves in with him. He then prepares a fancy dinner to ingratiate himself with Sheldon. The latter is delighted and starts to realize that Leonard actually was a bad roommate. Penny comes over to ask for their Wi-Fi password (as she doesn't want to pay for her own) and then stays for dinner. She and Raj both get drunk from the wine Raj served. When Sheldon starts to get annoyed by them and opts to go to bed, Penny tells Raj that she "screwed up", as she shouldn't have broken up with Leonard, and that she would be "on" him if they weren't friends. Eventually, they end up having sex nonetheless. Priya receives a video call from her parents and orders Leonard to hide in the bedroom, as she still doesn't want them to know that she is dating him. Leonard overhears the Koothrappalis talking about Priya moving back to India the following month and then storms in to confront her and also happens to reveal that they are in a relationship.

At the end of the episode, Sheldon discovers Leonard sleeping on the couch at their apartment, as he is still mad at Priya, just before Howard shows up and announces that he had a fight with Bernadette over the watch. Penny wakes up and is horrified when she notices Raj. She tells him that last night never happened and tries to sneak out of the apartment, however, as Raj and Penny come out of Leonard's room, they are busted by all the others. Penny just states that "it’s not what it looks like" and leaves Sheldon, Leonard and Howard confused. Sheldon inquires "What does it look like?".

Recurring characters: Aarti Mann as Priya Koothrappali, Brian George as Dr. V.M. Koorthrappali, and Alice Amter as Mrs. Koothrappalli.

Title reference: Raj becoming Sheldon's new roommate.
