Episode 18: The Contractual Obligation Implementation

Summary

While the girls go to Disneyland and get made up as princesses, the guys have to promote science as a career option for women at Howard's old middle school. Meanwhile, Raj and Lucy have their first date in a library, where instead of speaking to each other they send text messages.

Review

An adorable episode of the misfit-com, and one that spreads the killer lines evenly around the cast. The boys (minus Raj) try to promote science careers for women by going back to middle school. It’s a blast of nostalgia for Howard, who sighs, “How many times in these hallways was I tripped, punched and spat on.” Their presentation to a class of 12-year-olds is three different types of unsuitable, all of them hilarious.

Other plotlines are the girls’ trip to Disneyland and Raj’s first real date with Lucy, a heartbreakingly sweet text-exchange in a library (with one near-catastrophic mis-spelling). It’s all beautifully structured, as you’d expect from perhaps the most consistent comedy on the box.
