Leonard is unable to drive Sheldon to work for the next couple of weeks, leaving Sheldon, who refuses to take the bus, to find an alternate ride for the commute. After going through Penny then Howard then Raj, alienating each in those drives, Sheldon has run out of friends who will drive him. They come up with what they think is the best solution for all: that Sheldon learn how to drive himself. But can a genius in theoretical applications master an everyday mundane task that involves the unpredictable decisions of other people?
Did You Know?
The shots taken from Sheldon (Jim Parsons
)'s viewpoint as he enters the living room was recorded the day previous to "show day." This is because putting up and taking down the "fourth wall" would have been too time consuming to accomplish in front of a studio audiences. Shooting scenes ahead of time is common practice in shows "shot before a studio audience," either due to time constraints, inaccessibility of the shooting location to the audience, or other mitigating factors (such as nudity).

Good morning, Leonard!
We're going to have to stop by Pottery Barn on the way to work. I bought these Star Wars sheets, but they turned out to be much too stimulating to be compatible with a good night's sleep. I don't like the way Darth Vader stares at me.
CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #220 Friday morning, October 10, 2008 Watching the market fall as precipitously as the hopes and dreams of NBC and ABC executives, I can't help but think that there are two bets I can make right now. One is on the simple inertia of a world economy created by hundreds of millions of people creating and servicing stuff that other people need and want. The other bet is on canned goods and guns. Since I've never actually fired a weapon and I'm not sure where my can opener is, I've decided to go with bet number one. If I'm wrong and the market continues to descend like a drug-addled hooker with vertigo, it's reasonable to assume that any new world order created by the complete collapse of the free market system will have little use for a comedy writer. For that reason I think it only prudent to hedge my bet. This weekend I plan on learning a few new survival skills, beginning with foraging for berries and hiding from people whose skill set includes shooting wildlife from helicopters. See more
