I didn't really understand Howard's mother's underwear either. Howard and Bernadette don't live with his mom. Remember when he came back from space to visit and his dentist was climbing out the window. They live at Bernadette's old place apparently. Of course, having his mom's underwear mixed in with their laundry does add a humorous creepy factor.

I liked this episode. One of my favorite parts was where Amy told Sheldon about men's testosterone levels increasing when they dominate other men. Her point? "I'm just glad you'll be getting a testosterone level."

Sheldon & Leonard do well living together. They really are best friends, even if they annoy each other a lot.

I'm finding Penny less and less likeable. Is it just me? First she's stringing Leonard along, then she's constantly drinking/drunk, now she's basically bullying her two friends into helping with her school work. She shouldn't be uspet with Leonard for wanting to help if she's only going to force the girls to help.

The Leonard and Sheldon 'fight' was some of the funniest stuff from the episode.

Leonard: I did a bad thing.
Sheldon: Does it affect me?
Leonard : No.
Sheldon: Then suffer in silence.

Leonard: Is it possible that we’re having two different conversations?
Sheldon: How do I know? I’m not listening to you.

Leonard: You need to give me some advice.
Sheldon: Fine! Women, huh?
Leonard: Specific to my situation?
Sheldon: Blonde women, huh?

Also the bit about Bernadette using her mother in laws panties as a towel was hilarious.

I think Leonard and Sheldon live together because they do care for each other, and neither are willing to move out of their comfort zones and live by themselves or with a girl yet. Living alone can be, well, lonely. There is a comfort knowing someone who cares about you (and vice versa) is less than a stone's throw away.

Besides, just because you can afford to live in your own apartment, doesn't mean that it isn't more fiscally prudent to save that money and share an apartment. My grandfather would say they're being wise. I think living in your own apartment is a more recent evolution of societal norms, within the last generation (I'm talking my dad's and he was born in 1950). Most of my friends, especially my male friends, shared apartments until they moved in with significant others or got married.

I really liked that they are finally taking Penny's character forward in her life. It seems that she's maturing.

I think in every relationship, boundaries can be hard to define and redefine over time. I'm glad Penny stood up to Leonard and didn't let him walk over her. His comment relating her cooking to her writing was great.

Oh Shelly. So Shelly.

The look on Mayim/Amy's face when she delivered that line was what cracked me up. It was perfect.

The only reason Sheldon and Leonard continue to live together is as a setup for the show. Both of them make enough money to live alone, even in Pasadena. Remember when Sheldon loaned Penny money? He had all those uncashed paychecks in his desk, and he has cash squirreled away all over the apartment. No one in his or her right mind would live with Sheldon. He is a nightmare. For a while, he appeared to be growing, but he seems to have come to a screeching halt again. Tiresome.

Amy: I feel like I'm in high school again.
Bernadette: Yeah, doing the prom queen's homework, so she'll like us.
Amy: I know. It's finally working.
Oh Amy, you had me laughing with this line

Mostly unfunny and unentertaining. Sheldon's nicknames for Hawking were funny. The Amy/Bernadette exchange quoted above was funny.
