The Long Distance Dissonance - S10-E24

Continuity mistake: After the 'Ramona' conversation between Sheldon and Penny ends, Sheldon leaves Penny alone on the couch. Penny looks up to the "Amy and Penny" painting and says "Don't look at me like that, I tried." In S10 E10, Amy gave the painting back to Penny, which was hung in Leonard's living room.

The Long Distance Dissonance - S10-E24

Continuity mistake: When Sheldon takes a plane to see Amy in Princeton, the plane he is on has 2 engines when it takes off and 4 engines when it lands. It's a direct flight from LAX so he wouldn't have changed planes.

The Countdown Reflection - S5-E24

Factual error: There is not a snowball's chance of Howard becoming an astronaut. He suffers from cardiac arrhythmia, something about which he is completely open. "Transient" or not this is easily detectable by a simple electrocardiogram, which is a fundamental part of the many medical examinations a potential astronaut will have to pass. He wouldn't even be allowed to start basic training. Note also that during his basic training he shows signs of severe stress and trauma which would inevitably trigger a cardiac episode. Even if it didn't the fact that he was falling apart at the seams would have him removed from the programme for his own good.

The Holographic Excitation - S6-E5

Trivia: 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.

Show generally

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.
