Raj then spends the rest of the night with the toilet.
The next morning, Raj goes to Penny's to apologize and she makes him speak to her for the first time sober and not by accident. He let's out a pip-squeak of an apology and she forgives and hugs him. Poor Leonard walks outside to see this and Raj gives him a huge grin.
