Recap: "The Dead Hooker Juxtaposition"


This week, an attractive new tenant moves into the apartment above Sheldon and Leonard. Although the guys love the fact that there is a new girl living above them, Penny isn't too fond of this.


We first find the guys hanging out in the living room. Penny, being the only brave one out of the entire bunch, killed a spider for them and she sits down. Many topics were brought up, including the fact that the upstairs apartment is now for rent. Sheldon is immediately horrified by the idea of having new tenants upstairs. He had never met them, but that is the exact reason why he liked them - quiet and basically non-existent. As any person in this situation would do, Penny decided to taunt Sheldon and told him that maybe "a tap dancing pirate with a wooden leg" would move in upstairs. Obviously, Sheldon found this joke unacceptable. Howard even spoke up and suggested he move in so they could all spend more time together. As Penny put it, "the horror."


On the way over to help Howard move out, things were quickly brought to a screeching halt when they overheard Howard and his mom yelling inside. "Does this look like the Olive Garden to you!?" Even after Howard said he would come home every night and eat dinner with her, he finally decided that he couldn't say bye to his mom just yet and was not moving out. (Will he ever decide to move out?)


Howard and Leonard walked into their apartment complex and saw boxes in the lobby. Sheldon picked up a box and started to shake it, looking for instruments of course. All of a sudden, a very pretty, blonde woman named Alicia came down the steps and introduced herself. As she was sorting through all the boxes, Sheldon began to interrogate her about her apartment lifestyle. "On a scale of one to 10, how light of foot are you?" He even gets a little bit more personal (and only Sheldon could get away with this) and asked Alicia, "How fertile are you?" He had to ask just so he knew the chances of loud babies living upstairs. Finally, Sheldon decides that she is an adequate candidate to move in. "Welcome to the building."


The next scene showed Leonard following Alicia and carrying a gigantic box up the steps. The three of them ran into a "frumpy" looking Penny outside her door while she was wearing sweatpants and a XL "Hillary 2008" T-shirt - although it is hard to make Penny look unattractive in my opinion. Later on in the day, Penny went upstairs wearing a tight blue dress (making up for her earlier appearance) to say hello to everyone who was up in Alicia's apartment. Alicia and Penny begin to talk (while the guys were hooking up electronics) and she finds out she is an actress. She even went onto say that being an actress is hard because she only gets national TV commercials and cheesy soaps. As soon as those words came out of her mouth, I knew Penny was going to be jealous of her - and not just because she is hanging with her guys. Being a struggling actress herself, Penny was obviously annoyed by Alicia. She even attempted to tell a physicist joke (that she didn't even understand and the guys were offended by) in order to get the eyes back on her.
