It’s prom season on The Big Bang Theory tonight. On November 6, the gang redoes the high school tradition nerd style.
The crew doesn’t disappoint and the night is complete with confessions, panic attacks, and other nerd-filled drama.
Here are some highlights from the touching episode.
1. Penny Went to 7 Proms
When Amy spots a red dress, she says, “What’s this?”
“Believe it or not, that’s my prom dress,” Penny answers, drink in hand.
Incredulously, Bernadette says, “Wow! You still have it. I just assumed it was balled up in the corner of a barn somewhere.”
When Penny asked what kind of teenager the girls think she was, they use the words, “slutty” and “easy.”
Watch the conversation in the clip below.
2. Amy and Bernie Never Went
The girls lament that their proms were less than stellar.
They suggest getting all dressed up and taking their significant others to their new version of a prom.
Penny doesn’t love the idea, but goes along with it. The gang recreates the evening on the roof of their building.
3. Howard’s Cousin Is Stuart’s Date
When Howard finds out Stuart is going, he assumes his mother will accompany him as a date.
Kara Luiz joins the cast tonight as Howard’s cousin Jeanie- the one he admitted to losing his virginity to in a Toyota- who surprised Howie as Stuart’s date.
