** There is an issue, in that he spent the time complaining about anachronisms, instead of examining it like a new species encountered.

*** On the other hand, Sheldon being Sheldon, he'd probably feel the need to confirm that it was Hal (it's Sheldon...his One True GL would certainly be Hal)...but the writers probably couldn't come up with a funny way to do that.

** my interpretation of the scene (and I could easily be wrong) is that Howard was faking sadness/self pity to get penny to feel sorry for him and maybe change her mind about him. Due to this I feel her anger (and subsequent punch) was lots more understandable (I'm not excusing her assaulting Howard, just saying it's understandable) as it is now the anger of someone who has been lied to and emotionally manipulated in addition to the other things Howard has done to her,

* Why didn't Raj dress up as ComicBook/MartianManhunter instead of Comicbook/{{Aquaman}} in "The Justice League Recombination"? It just seems strange that he would be willing to dress up as Wonder Woman to avoid his Aquaman outfit, but not consider ComicBook/MartianManhunter. Also, these are exactly the type of people that would know who ComicBook/MartianManhunter is. And that is just the original seven. There are plenty of other heroes who joined the league later (ComicBook/PlasticMan, ComicBook/TheAtom, ComicBook/RedTornado, {{Steel}}, ComicBook/GreenArrow...). Raj had plenty of alternatives if he did not want to dress up as Comicbook/{{Aquaman}}.

** Call it what you will, but this isn't about being a good guy in relative to Priya. From a writing point of view, it is apparent that Priya cheating was thrown in to make him look better in comparison, and thus justifying his Good Guy title. This isn't new either, Leonard almost triumphantly admitted to having lied to Penny about his personality throughout their relationship and for no other reason than wanting sex from her - but that's okay, because Penny meets a new guy and lies about her interests too. This happens ''two episodes'' after his breakup with Priya. And even that's not a coincidence, because the same thing happened to [[TwoAndAHalfMen Alan]] over and over again when he was supposed to be the good guy. And you know what the worst part is? It doesn't work, because the women are different each time which means that while he may share flaws with some women, he still has ''all'' of the flaws for himself, and then some.

** The show continually references very recent developments in both geekdom and science, it has almost never made intricate details of those stuff as being a major plot point or anything other than for a quick joke. Sheldon made a reference to the fact that NathanFillion was a fan choice for [[Film/GreenLantern Hal Jordan]], that's obviously more than a superficial pass-by.

[[folder: Priya Got Married?]]
* Not ''really'' a "headscratcher," but a buried reference in what is almost a "throwaway" line.....in the episode in which Raj's father cuts him off financially, he mentions during their Skype chat that 5 of his 6 children have married, Raj being the exception. The implication, of course, is that since returning to India and breaking up with Leonard, Priya has apparently married. One wonders if Leonard is aware of this (did Raj tell him, or would he?). Sure, Priya is long since "water under the bridge" and Leonard is now happily married to Penny, but if he's aware of this, he certainly might have a moment of pause, thinking about what might have been. (It's only human to wonder what would have happened had prior romantic relationships worked out better.)

** One of the things that worries Sheldon is that he'll only be comfortable living with Amy because he'll be living with her in a familiar environment, namely his and Leonard's apartment. So he wants to try living with Amy on what he considers 'neutral grounds', which is when they decide to take Penny's apartment instead.
