  • Gold Digger: See above. Mrs. Wolowitz refers to her as "gold digger."
  • Ignore the Fanservice: Penny brings a group of attractive friends over on Halo Night. The guys are too engrossed in the game to notice.
  • Sore Loser: When Penny continuously kills Sheldon's character when they are playing Halo, Sheldon gets fed up and accuses Penny of cheating, stating nobody can be as attractive as her and as skilled at video games at the same time. Penny doesn't get angry at his accusations though, and simply kills his character again when he is walking out of the room.
