The Russian Rocket Reaction - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Howard and Bernadette are about to have sex and Bernadette leaves to "brush her teeth", Howard stretches and lays on the bed uncovered. After Howard's mother yells "over my dead body my son goes to space" and Bernadette appears again and says "I'm ready", then it flashes back to Howard and he is instantly covered up.

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.
