Corrected entry: Sheldon is very particular about sitting in his spot and not allowing anyone else into his spot. We learn later on in the series that he has been this way since Leonard moved in. However at the very end of this episode, we see Leonard sat in Sheldon's spot and Sheldon sat in the arm chair.
Corrected entry: When Leonard is standing outside the apartment his hair is tucked under the band of the wireless cam he has on his head, but when he is crawling on his hands and knees through the apartment his hair is out from under the band and is hanging in front of his face.Jacy Sorkenn
Corrected entry: While the group are trying to figure out how to play Halo without Howard, Leonard jokingly suggests cutting Raj in half. Raj responds, "Oh sure, cut the foreigner in half. There's a billion more where he came from." But Penny is in the room with them, so there's no way he should be able to talk in front of her, or even if he's been drinking, the fact alcohol helps him isn't realised until the next episode, so the fact he can speak with her there should have surprised everyone, including him.
Corrected entry: Leonard wonders aloud "I wonder who's going to tell his (Sheldon's) parents they're not having grandchildren." Leonard and Sheldon have been sharing the apartment for long enough for Leonard to know that Sheldon's father has been dead for a number of years, but it is at least since S1E04, when Sheldon's mother says "God rest his soul" while talking about his father.MFWills
Corrected entry: Sheldon asks Missy why she doesn't tell her friends that he is a toll taker on The Golden Gate Bridge. There are no toll takers on the Golden Gate Bridge. Tolls are paid by credit or debit card, a prepaid account or by invoice to the registered car owner's address. There is no way Sheldon would not know this.
Corrected entry: Penny storms into Sheldon and Leonard's apartment to throw her boyfriend's iPod out of their window and yell at her boyfriend who has just left. Raj then finds the iPod on his way in. However, according to the layout of the building with the front door being to the left of the elevator, the front side of their apartment building would be on Penny's side, so she should have thrown it out of her own apartment window. The window through Sheldon and Leonard's apartment would lead to the back.07marsh
Corrected entry: At the end of this episode when Penny asks to use Leonard and Sheldon's bathroom for a shower, when she goes down the hallway towards the bathroom/bedrooms, she turns past the bathroom (the door that is visible from the living room) and turns right and goes towards the bedrooms.Jack Adams
Corrected entry: At the beginning, when Leonard has won the online auction, we see a shot of his laptop computer screen showing an Apple Safari browser window with Mac OS X window controls, but the laptop is a PC, not made by Apple. Mac OS X can only run on Mac hardware.
Corrected entry: At the apartment, after pretending to eat some of the granola bar, Howard throws the bar and wrapper down on the coffee table. He does not pick it up again before they leave the apartment. Later, at the hospital, he takes the bar from his pocket and eats some.pinkwafer
Corrected entry: When Penny and Leonard are talking to Sheldon about their date, Sheldon refers to Schrodinger's Cat, stating "The cat in the box is both alive and dead, until you open the box and find out." Yet the precise point of the Schrodinger's Cat example is that the cat cannot be both alive and dead. Schrodinger was arguing against physicists of the time who claimed that certain subatomic particles were special and could be in opposite states at the same time; his argument was that you can't make small systems special because a large and obvious system (e.g., the cat) could always be made to depend on the state of the smaller one, and for a large and obvious system to be in opposite states simultaneously is ridiculous. Now, this is pretty obscure and the misunderstanding of Schrodinger's Cat experiment is widespread, but this is Sheldon we're talking about.Moose
Corrected entry: In "The Loobenfield Decay" Sheldon and Leonard go to absurd lengths to avoid having to hear Penny perform because her singing voice is so horrible. But in series 2 episode 18 "The Work Song Nanocluster", series 3 episode 3 "The Gothowitz Deviation" and series 3 episode 8 "The Adhesive Duck Deficiency" (amongst others) she is shown to have a strong, pleasant singing voice, and she sings in front of both men without them objecting. They aren't just being polite - they genuinely like her singing. So, which is it?
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.LittleWildman
Corrected entry: Sheldon states that reductio ad absurdum is "the logical fallacy of extending an argument to a ridiculous extreme and then challenging it". This is incorrect; this is the straw man fallacy. Reductio ad absurdum is the entirely valid inferential technique of demonstrating that the consequences of an argument being true result in a contradiction.Moose
Corrected entry: When Leonard is explaining his thoughts to Sheldon, during the rant which includes him naming who he intends with the words she or her (eg "She: Penny, Her: Leslie), he states, "Indicating that She: Penny had no interest in me asking Her: Penny out," which makes no sense.
