On the latest Big Bang Theory, both Howard and Bernadette are forced to stay in bed to get some rest. Howard has a surgery in the episode, and Bernadette needs some rest due to the second baby, but this means trouble for Baby Halley.

At the beginning of the episode, we see Howard stuffing his face. Likewise, Raj too is eating quickly. For Howard, he’s got to get the food finished before a certain time so he can prepare for surgery the following day.

For Raj, he’s eating out of stress and sympathy for his friend.

After Howard gets the vasectomy, he’s ordered to rest for at least two days. For Howard, it’s possible this could last much longer. With him in the bed, Bernadette is left to do all of the chores and work around the house alone.

When she visits her doctor, this gets her in trouble. The doctor orders the pregnant woman to get some rest. This puts both Howard and Bernadette on bed rest with no one to look after their baby.

Luckily, Penny arrives. However, the two are reluctant to get her help.

With both Howard and Bernadette in bed, there’s no one to help out with Baby Halley. Usually, Stuart or Raj shows up to help, but both are busy with their jobs and other commitments.

When Penny arrives, the couple is unsure if they can trust her. This eventually leads to Bernie asking Amy to come over and just checks up on Penny. In the end, Penny gets the last laugh when Baby Halley mistakenly calls her “Mama.”

This episode shows what life will be like in the future for this couple. When they have two babies, they’re going to need all the help they can get. Also, they’re going to have to make sure they both stay well and healed when the second baby arrives.

What did you think of Penny’s methods for helping out with the baby?
