Sheldon Insults Leonard Movie Preference
After Leonard bombed his interview to raise money for the Physics department, Sheldon and the crew were pretty rough on him. To try and defend himself, Leonard reminded the gang what science was all about.
“Look, I was just speaking the truth. We’re scientists. Isn’t that what we’re supposed to do?” This little comment sends Sheldon off the deep end. He can’t hold his tongue any longer about a harsh truth that Leonard told him in confidence.
“What would you know about the truth?” asked Sheldon. “You thought ‘Phantom Menace’ was not half bad…”
“I Told You That In Confidence!”
After Sheldon’s comment in front of Howard and Raj, Leonard gets angry. “I told you that in confidence!” Raj reminds everyone to calm down. Both Raj and Howard know this is the ultimate insult on Leonard’s character.
George Lucas’ Phantom Menace remains one of the lowest ranked Star Wars films. It’s currently at a 55 percent on Rotten Tomatoes and only 6.5 on IMDB. On the other end of the spectrum, The Force Awakens sits at 93 percent and 8.1 on IMDB.
Unfortunately, now everyone knows the truth about Leonard’s taste in movies.
Sheldon Tells Leonard He’s Right
Things do not go much better for the crew on The Big Bang Theory. After their lunch together, Sheldon goes home to start working on Physics toughest problems. Leonard comes over to ask for help with his retraction, but Sheldon gives in.
Surprisingly, Sheldon reveals that Leonard is possibly right in his statement. Perhaps “Physics is dead” after all. This leads to the duo cracking open Sheldon’s Romulan ale from a Comic-Con event. The mix is food coloring and vodka.
Penny comes over later to check on her husband and finds the two with blue tongues and a slight buzz. She offers to help but ends up asking for the help. Unfortunately, Howard and Raj are useless in the situation.
In the end, the gang found their answer in the graveyard while visiting Richard Feynman. Physics is only dead if you stop enjoying it.
What do you think about this huge reveal for Leonard?
