Didn't the producers say that this is the season where Penny does some growing up? Perhaps this is also when we'll finally find out her last name, which the producers have also said they'd be addressing (eventually).

A little picky - in the open, when Penny reads the title of the notebook Sheldon gives her, she mispronounces "Abelian group." She says a-bay-lian. It is a-bee-lian. An Abelian group is one that commutes, i.e. a*b = b*a, where * is any group operation, not just multiplication. Sorry - I had to point that out, I was a Math major.

For some reason, there are a number of mathematical jokes involving Abelian groups. Example: Q: What's purple and commutes? A: An Abelian grape.

Not to be pedantic, but shouldn't that be "Observation," not "Obervation"? :-)

ReplyDeleteWhoops, thanks for pointing that out! Fixed it.

DeleteThanks for sharing the link Roxanne!!! I like this episode but Penny is very childish, she needs to grow up for real...

DeleteLooks like someone at that forum took down the posting. I was just checking on that. If you see a correct link, you may want to repost.
