Leonard finds a letter in the trash can, the letter an invitation for him and Sheldon to speak at an upcoming conference on the topic of their latest joint research findings. Sheldon threw the letter out since he didn't want to do it. This brings to the forefront several issues. Has Sheldon thrown out any other important letters to Leonard? Who has the right to their joint intellectual property, especially if Leonard wants to present? Whose idea was the research to begin with? In Penny's eyes, does Leonard own anything appropriate to wear to the conference? Can Leonard and Sheldon come to a compromise so that they will speak to each other and be friends again? Written by

CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #196 my soul's journey To let go of the fear and anger which imprisons my heart, To relinquish all childish expectations and live joyfully in the world as it is -- not as I wish or imagine it to be, To be free of the always craven and ever-craving ego, To be released from the endless hungers of the body, To see God in others, To see God in everything, To die without death and merge my consciousness into the cosmic sea of bliss from which I came, To crank out two sitcoms a week that can compete with a deaf chick dancing her ass off... This is my soul's journey. See more
