The Big Bang Theory Recap: "The Maternal Capacitance"

by at . Comments

In last night's The Big Bang Theory, we got to meet Leonard's mother, Mrs. Hofstadter, who was played by the brilliant Christine Baranski.  Leonard's mother turned out to be exactly like Sheldon which resulted in some hilarious dialogue between the two.

Sheldon and Mrs. Hofstadter

Mrs. Hofstadter is a pyschologist and her analysis of Penny and her father issues quickly pushed her back into the arms of Leonard.  Find out what happened between the two in our "The Maternal Capacitance" recap. 

Here are some of our favorite pictures and quotes form the episode.

  • Raj The Singer
  • Penny and Leonard Kiss!
  • Sheldon and Mrs. Hofstadter Sing
Mrs. Hofstadter [about Penny]: If you want to have sex with that woman, find out what kind of cologne her father wore
Leonard: Hello mother | permalink
Penny: What was Leonard like when he was little?
Mrs. Hofstadter: Oh, I think you mean "young." He's always been little. | permalink

TBBT Quotes

Penny: Here's a question-- as an alien pretending to be human, are you planning to engage in any post-prom mating rituals with Amy?
Sheldon: There are post-prom mating rituals?
Penny: Not always. Unless your date drives a van with an air mattress, then always.
Sheldon: Well, if it's part of the prom experience, then I'm open to it.
Penny: You're kidding.
Sheldon: I may be an alien, but I have urges.If Amy wants to copulate by firing her eggs into space, well, then, I will happily catch them with the reproductive sac on my upper flermin. I'm not the best at reading facial cues, but I can see that you're a little turned on.

Penny: I always tear up when the Grinch's heart grows three sizes.
Sheldon: Tears seem appropriate. Enlargement of the heart muscle, or hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, is a serious disease which can lead to congestive heart failure.
