Penny will consistently fail to get any acting work, and will decide to move back to Nebraska, just like in the NeilDiamond song "Midnight Train To Georgia" in which the female protagonist leaves LA because she can't get acting work, and her boyfriend comes with her. Of course, they wouldn't end the series on such a note, so it'll probably just be the end to a season.

[[WMG: British-Indian comic actors like Meera Syal and Sanjeet Bhaskar will play cameos as friends or relatives of Raj]]
And why not? The TV sketch-show ''Series/GoodnessGraciousMe'' sent up the experience of being Indian/Pakistani in Britain (essentially: being immigrants keeping up traditional life in a foreign country), and with its spin-off, ''The Kumars at Number 42'', sent up Indian family life much as seen in Raj's background. GGM and No42 have been screened in the USA, so Americans are no strangers to this show or to Indian humour.

*** The staircase implementation points out Leonard was already friends with Howard and Raj when he moved in with Sheldon which is stated to be in 2002 which makes them far too young (minus Sheldon who was working on his PHD at 14), very early 20's, to have even been college graduates let alone be working at a college. Though it could be possible that they finished school two years early making them working there as grad students, but it's stated that Howard spent grad school at MIT. Realistically the characters would have had to be closer to 30 or late 20's to have PHDs and that's back in 2002.

It's been confirmed that a future episode that Howard will meet his long-lost half-brother (played by Matt Bennett from ''Series/{{Victorious}}''). Since Howard is a ButtMonkey when it comes to his lacking of a doctorate, I expect his brother to have had a better childhood, a PHD and/or be way more accomplished that he is. Like how [[Series/TheGeorgeLopezShow George Lopez's]] long-lost sister had a better childhood, job and life than he did.

*** While I'm sure ''the polyamory'' won't happen, it will be a waste of a character if they never show Dave again. Sheldon, the fanboy of so many sci-fi creators (and the only living scientist Sheldon seems to admire more than Sheldon admires himself, Stephen Hawking), to the point that many have gotten restraining orders against him, having his own fanboy. There are a lot of fun ways for the writers to go with that, if they choose to.

* Penny will get back together with Leonard and fall in love again. Sheldon will marry Amy Farrah Fowler and have a baby via a surrogate. They will all live in a house together since theres no way sheldon could survive on his own.

*** Which is why, if they ever made a Franchise/{{Batman}}- centric episode, I'd like Creator/KevinConroy to appear instead of Creator/AdamWest or Creator/ChristianBale.

[[WMG: Bernadette will miscarry]]
Don't have much basis for this one. Just got bored and wanted to make a WMG.

[[WMG: A version of ''WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog'' exists in the world of ''TheBigBangTheory''.]]
Albeit not as a film, but as a cartoon drawn and written by Penny for Leonard, featuring a caricature of Leonard as the VillainProtagonist Main Character and a FriendToAllLivingThings PuritySue with her own first name (although with a considerably different personality, wether this is intentional or not) as the LoveInterest. Captain Hammer is a portmanteau personality of several different other ex-boyfriends of her. Bonus because Moist is played by Simon Helberg, who also plays Wolowitz in TheBigBangTheory. Penny intentionally left out a Sheldon-like character because she could think of no non-insulting way to present him, and she left out a Raj-like character because she doesn't really know him.

The only reason given as to why Raj's family is rich is because Raj's father is a gynecologist.If you think about it despite being a doctor, Sheldon says his family is "halfway between Bruce Wayne and Scrooge [=McDuck=]." a doctor in poor country is not that rich, the latest of a long line of patriarchs on the other hand.
** it is quite possible to become extremely wealthy in medicine especially if one owns a clinic or even hosts seminars though there might be family money as well as even then you'd be talking millions not billions.

* This would also imply that in "The Griffin Equivalency", the character that Raj has an encounter with at The Cheesecake Factory is in fact the real Charlie Sheen, not Charlie Harper from TaaHM.

* Yet in ''{{Frasier}}'', it is revealed that Lilith, with Frasier's connivance, used their baby son Frederick as a lab-rat in a series of maze experiments: Lilith says, with pride, that when put in the maze, Frederick was commendably quick at finding his way to the bottle of milk. As a WMG with some substance to it, can we postulate:

** OK, more of a ''{{Frasier}}'' WMG: Frederick Crane will grow up scientifically brilliant. But with similar parents, he will develop into another Leonard and end up in a place not unlike Caltech. Conversely, Leonard at twelve would have been as awkward and nerdy as Frederick. Frederick also had the woes associated with the middle name "Gaylord". What embarrassing middle name does Leonard have?

In an episode of ''{{Frasier}}'', it is revealed that Niles Crane had a childhood "imaginary friend"... called '''Sheldon'''. Niles blamed him for wetting the bed when he was four or five. Sheldon Cooper had a childhood bedwetting problem. Could it be this is another inspiration for naming the TBBT character? Or... did Niles' imaginary friend take physical form as Sheldon Cooper, compounding Niles' intellectuality and personality problems by several magnitudes?
