[[folder: What version of D&D are they even playing?]]
* Did I remember this correctly? I remember that they were playing D&D, get the girls in, and try to hook Sheldon and Amy's character up - so they go play it out and Amy mentions her character is an orc and has MultiBoobage. What version of D&D are they playing where orcs have that? Did I remember this incorrectly or did the writers just not do the research?

[[folder: What Raj's resident status?]]
* What kind of visa is Raj on? Even by Season 9, people still refer to his visa status, which means he hasn't yet applied for residence[=/=]green card. He also made mention early on that his visa, and therefore, his stay in the country, is dependent on his continuous employment at the university, which wouldn't be an issue with a green card. Yet, research and skilled worker visas have a maximum duration of six years: a mandatory maximum of five for J-1, and a renewable three years for H1, but it can only be renewed once. Have six years not passed yet "in real-time" in the show?

** My suspicion is that she (deliberately) has a lot on common with Lilith Crane in ''{{Frasier}}''. Beverley Hofstadter is Lilith taken UpToEleven - cold, unfeeling, robotic, over-analytical. Lilith, though, is relatively sucessful as a mother in that Frederick is not a complete basket case - although with parents like that, you do wonder if Frederick Crane is another Leonard in the making...

** Unfortunately most writers, and by extension the general audience, know Comicbook/{{Aquaman}} best from his incarnation on SuperFriends where his powers were notoriously poorly handled. A big example of research failure since has been pointed out other incarnations like JusticeLeagueUnlimited and BatmanBraveAndTheBold he is much more of a BadAss.

* Why did the guys recognize SummerGlau from the ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'' instead of ''{{Series/Firefly}}''?

* Why did no one in the group think Priya was out of bounds by making Leonard stay away from Penny? Firstly, they've been friends with Penny for four or so years before. Secondly, its not like he was driving across town to see her, he lives next door. Thirdly, Penny and her have no discussion about this in "The Engagement Reaction" and act like nothing happened. What is up with this? What's wrong with character study and interaction? [[ViewersAreMorons Do they think we forgot?]] Also one about the fourth season finale; Why did Raj not stay in the bedroom and instead follow Penny to the door? [[WhatAnIdiot Did he think no one would question him walking to the door in nothing but a blanket with a half dressed Penny?]]

**However, in Season One's "The Grasshopper Experiment", Leonard wonders aloud in regard to Sheldon, "I wonder who's going to tell his parents that their not going to have grandchildren". (possibly not verbatim). If Sheldon's father has been dead that long, surely Leonard would have said, "his mother".

** What about the Prime Directive? This is clearly a pre-warp culture, and Spock would NOT travel there in uniform, and using a visible tricorder. Given Sheldon's devotion to the character, he wouldn't either!

** Yes, she could have faked the napkin. But why? If all she wanted was to give Sheldon a gift he'd enjoy there are any number of stores she could hit up for nerdy gifts that would have pleased him well enough. It just seems unnecessarily conspiratorial to suggest that she'd do something like this.

*** Okay. Maybe he was there, but still. There's no legit proof that the napkin was used by him. The message could have been made by anyone, I doubt Sheldon knows Nimoy's handwriting.

** This is Sheldon we're talking about, a mega Spock and Leonard Nimoy fan; he almost certainly seen examples of Nimoy's handwriting (autographs, memorabilia, etc) and with his obsessiveness and eidetic memory it'd be more surprising if he didn't know what Nimoy's handwriting looks like.
