The Dumpling Paradox - S1-E7

Factual error: Sheldon has a rigid schedule. Halo Night is known to be on Wednesday night. Penny sleeps on the couch in Sheldon and Leonard's apartment. The following morning, Sheldon cannot watch Doctor Who on BBC America because Penny is sleeping on his spot on the couch. He states that he has been watching Doctor Who every Saturday at 6:15 a.m. The following morning should be Thursday.


The Dumpling Paradox - S1-E7

Character mistake: Raj cannot talk with a woman around, but when Leonard claims they'd have to cut him in half to play teams, he blatantly argues back, and Penny is present with them. Regardless of if he was facing her or not, he shouldn't have said anything.

Suggested correction: Couple of points here, 1. Raj talking in front of Penny is already listed. 2. Raj doesn't pick the plates up until Penny has left after the Halo game. 3. He then stays in the kitchen area while we see Penny come back and settle down to go to sleep and Leonard and Sheldon go to bed and turn the lights out. Raj then creeps out the apartment and scares Penny.

Chosen answer: The song is called "Dark as a Dungeon" and was written and first performed by singer-songwriter Merle Travis in 1946. It has been performed by a wide array of artists, including Tennessee Ernie Ford, Harry Belafonte, Dolly Parton, Queens of the Stone Age, Kathy Mattea and Amy Grant. But it was made most famous when it was performed and recorded by Johnny Cash during his concert at Folsom Prison in 1968. According to Wikipedia: "It is a lament about the danger and drudgery of being a coal miner in an Appalachian shaft mine. It has become a rallying song among miners seeking improved working conditions."
