Based on a some products that she made previously and sold to friends at a nominal profit, Penny is contemplating starting a home-based business called Penny Blossoms, in which she would make and sell flower shaped hair barrettes. Penny asks Sheldon for advice on the business aspects so that she can possibly turn this venture into a full time job. Sheldon agrees if only on the stipulation that she must listen to everything he says and not to make any sarcastic remarks. She agrees. But when Leonard, Howard and Raj get wind of what Sheldon and Penny are up to, the four guys collectively can't help but provide more than their two-cents worth of advice about every aspect of the business. The advice turns to total control. Problems arise because they forgot internal communication between departments of the business is key to success.

Bam! This is a space where we are all essentially Alice through the looking glass, standing in front the Red Queen,...
CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #245 More of "Not Funny Then" I decide getting on staff at Roseanne would be a great opportunity for me, even though every writer who had ever worked on the show had been fired. Four weeks into the job I deliver my first script and I'm almost fired. Not funny then, funny now. I create Grace Under Fire, realize what I'm in for and try to quit after pilot is picked up to series. I try to quit again during Christmas. A few weeks later the Northridge earthquake hits. During a large aftershock I drop to my knees and pray for the sound stage to collapse and kill me. Not funny then, funny now. I think developing a new series starring Cybill Shepherd is a swell idea. The show is an instant hit. Cybill wants me to fire Lee Aronsohn because he's a misogynist. She's not wrong, but I jokingly tell her, "Why do you care? You're not a woman." She fires us both. I get the call not to come back to work on Yom Kippur from a Carsey-Werner exec named Dirk Van De Bunt. Not funny then, still not funny. See more
