The Habitation Configuration - S6-E7

Corrected entry: Howard states in The Shiny Trinket Maneuver that he started doing magic to try to get girls to come to his room, but in this episode he tells her he started magic when his Dad left because it made his Mom happy and made her forget for a while.

Correction: He also may have gotten the idea for doing magic to get girls to his room, but actually started doing it to cheer up his mother.

LorgSkyegon

Correction: And Wolowitz is known to exaggerate the truth.

The Holographic Excitation - S6-E5

Corrected entry: When Sheldon has the tea kettle at any time, there are stage lights reflected on the pot.

Correction: The pattern on the teapot suggests that the spots are actually overhead lights in the kitchen. The patterns are constant throughout the scene and the same at every angle whereas crew's spotlights have different placements for different angled shots.

The Higgs Boson Observation - S6-E3

Corrected entry: When Amy is putting on make up with Penny's help, where Amy says "I'm going to video chat Sheldon" she is not wearing glasses. The shot moves to capture Penny's face and Amy is wearing glasses, then the next shot shows Amy is not wearing her glasses. (00:09:00)

Correction: After Amy says "I'm a maneater now", she removes her spectacles. There is no evidence of her wearing them again.

The Bakersfield Expedition - S6-E13

Corrected entry: At the end of the episode Sheldon's sat nav voice asks "Can you name the four state capitals that are not served by the interstate system?" In fact, there are five, according to the Interstate System's website. Juneau, Alaska; Dover, Delaware; Jefferson City, Missouri; Carson City, Nevada; and Pierre, South Dakota.

Correction: Although there used to be 5 state capitols not served by the interstate system, the completion of I-580 means that Carson City is now served, hence there are only four, and the sat nav was correct. 580 was completed in 2012, the episode in question aired in 2013.

What about Hawaii?

Honolulu, HI has an Interstate Highway. Not all Interstate Highways physically go from one state to another, the name just indicates it receives federal funding as part of the National System of Interstate and Defense Highways initially set up through the Federal Aid Highway Act.

The Bon Voyage Reaction - S6-E24

Corrected entry: Sheldon gets everyone's attention by tapping a glass and saying "that's a B flat, for those that don't have perfect pitch." It's not a B flat, it's a B.

Correction: The note is a dead-on Bb, assuming the western standard of A=440 Hz.

The Holographic Excitation - S6-E5

Corrected entry: Penny observes that the pencil in the hologram is sharp but looking closely at the hologram shows that it's not.

Tanngrisnir

Correction: She doesn't say that about the hologram; she says it about the actual pencil. Which it is, as Leonard puts the pointy end into the table that has equally spaced out holes in it, making it stand upright. The laser can't see below the hole in the table, which is why it doesn't appear to have a pointy end in the hologram.

The Extract Obliteration - S6-E6

Corrected entry: Sheldon mentions that he scores a double letter score with a triple word score. On the Words with Friends board, this is impossible.

kristenlouise3

Correction: That is totally possible when you play on a random board, which has the bonus squares in different places. I have played it with an opening word point total of over 225.

The Monster Isolation - S6-E17

Corrected entry: When Leonard tells Sheldon to hand over his Nintendo DS, Sheldon gives him a shiny aqua console. The Nintendo DS has never been produced in that color: the console is actually a 3DS, not a DS.

Moose Premium member

Correction: Semantics. To most people, "DS" is sufficient enough to specify all of the Nintendo DS consoles. The same way that "Xbox" is sufficient enough to specify the Xbox 360.

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.

Stephen Hawking: Do you like brain teasers?
Sheldon Cooper: Oh, I love brain teasers.
Stephen Hawking: What do Sheldon Cooper and a black hole have in common? They both suck. Neener, neener.

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.
