Last night’s The Big Bang Theory had a much sadder tone than we are used to. Having been abandoned by his father as a child, Howard is forced to relive this trauma when Sheldon finds a letter from his father. Painful memories and close friends bring us this week’s top 5 moments of goodness. 

Sheldon should start a cleaning service.  Who wouldn’t love Sheldon to come to a dinner party at her house?  I know I’ve got a couple rooms that he could “play” in.  Plus, he brings his own food.   Even Howard couldn’t stay mad at Sheldon after seeing the impressive job Sheldon did cataloging and organizing Howard’s photos and documents.

Raj the party planner.  Leonard may be right that Raj needs a testosterone patch.  Though, a turn of the century Moulin Rouge inspired dinner party would have been…interesting.  I’m surprised Raj didn’t suggest Steampunk.  Wouldn’t it be funny if that was something Lucy was into?  Painfully shy girl by day, dirigible flier by night?

Marriage is hard.  Bernadette realized pretty quickly that she shouldn’t have invaded Howard’s privacy.   It was such an emotional scene that Melissa Rauch played perfectly.  Bernadette hadn’t expected how deep the pain went for Howard.  The show doesn’t give us heavy emotional episodes very often, but it’s nice when they do.  It makes the characters multidimensional and relatable.

Howard’s broken heart.  It was heartbreaking that Howard couldn’t bring himself to open the letter from his dad.  It was even sadder when he burned it.   You had to really feel sorry for him that everyone at the party except him knew what was in the letter.  His friends didn’t think it through when they all pressed Sheldon to disclose its contents.  That was pretty messed up.  They made up for it, though, by telling Howard what it might have said.  We may never know who was telling the truth, but at least all of them (except Sheldon) expressed that Howard’s father still loved him.

Battery operated chew toy.  There’s not a whole lot more to say here.  While you may want to exploit Sheldon’s worker bee tendencies, be sure to move whatever *ahem* personal items not fit for his childlike eyes.

The Big Bang Theory airs Thursdays at 8/7c on CBS.
