Jokes about giant rodents and Comic-Con; spit-takes and dream sequences; special guest appearances by geek goddess Eliza Dushku (as an FBI agent) and professional geek Dr. Neil deGrasse "I de-planeted Pluto" Tyson (as himself); Star Trek references to the Gorn and the Kobayashi Maru; the return of Penny; and Sheldon sacrifices his spot to Howard?
