Correction: I have just reviewed this scene. Sheldon makes only one movement with his right hand as Howard walks in. Between shots he was able to walk from behind the group to the side. This gives him ample time to move his right hand back down.


The Luminous Fish Effect - S1-E4

Corrected entry: When Penny and Sheldon are driving to the supermarket, Sheldon is explaining the weight of the car and how it affects her braking time. He estimates the car's weight to be 4000 pounds, 140 for himself and 120 for Penny, and then rounds the total up to be 4400 pounds, when it actually should be 4260. It's extremely out of character for somebody like Sheldon to make such a basic addition mistake.


Correction: Or he could be including other things he just failed to mention, such as the contents of the vehicle and trunk.

Sheldon: Oh Gravity, thou art a heartless bitch.



When Howard is almost done moving out of his mother's house, there is a table in front of him with a measuring device in the top corner. In one shot, the device moves to the opposite corner of the table. In a few shots later, the item returns to its original position.



In this episode, Sheldon and Amy are trying to decide on couples' themed Halloween costumes. Sheldon is standing in front of the dry erase board. There are 2 columns written on the board. One named "Couples I Like" and the other "Couples You Like." Under the "Couples You Like" column, one of the couples is Blossom and Joey. Blossom is the name of the television character played by Mayim Bialik in the 90s and Joey was one of her brothers.
