The Sales Call Sublimation

Series 9 - Episode 12 The Sales Call Sublimation



After the writers developed geekdom’s power couple “Shamy” in dramatic fashion last week, they’ve separated them again – Amy is away at a neurobiology conference. So manchild Sheldon, as he helpfully declares to his friends, is “available to be entertained”. Raj draws the short straw, taking Sheldon to the observatory to help him scan for rogue planets.

Howard and Bernadette also find themselves at a loose end, when their unwanted lodger – oddball loner Stuart – finally moves out. Could they possibly be suffering withdrawals? But perhaps the most intriguing plot sees Leonard’s ploy to help Penny with her sales-rep job culminate in both of them opening up to a psychiatrist. Will they benefit from the experience?


Penny gets more than she bargained for when Leonard agrees to meet a psychiatrist on her behalf, while Sheldon and Raj collaborate on an astronomical discovery. Stuart moves out, but Howard and Bernadette's happiness is short-lived. Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons and Kaley Cuoco star.
