The Grasshopper Experiment - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When Raj's parents tell him to put his laptop down and gather his friends, they all huddle around the one-seat sofa. Sheldon is crouched to the left of the seat with his hands on the sidearm, yet in shots angled at the left he has disappeared from his place (as to not obstruct these particular angled shots.)

Question: How come Raj has no problem speaking to his mother, but, when around other women, such as Penny, he immediately stops talking? Also, why does he have to whisper in someone's ear if he wants to ask Penny something?

Answer: Because Raj's selective mutism seems to be caused by women that Raj sees (on some sort of conscious or subconscious level) as a potential sexual partner. An attribute that wouldn't apply to either his sister or mother.
