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.

Penny: How'd you see it? You said you wouldn't look.
Sheldon: Sorry. As I told you, the hero always peeks.
