S06xE11 – The guys have a tradition where they play D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) every year, and so they break it to their girls that they aren’t invited, and will need to find something else to do. So the girls decide to spend a night out at a bar in their hottest attire. Some dressed more scantily than others. The guys have started playing their game which Leonard has created a holiday themed quest to save Santa. Raj unfortunately is killed early on, so when the girls stop by to show off their hotness before heading out, Raj asks to join the girl’s night out. Penny obliges, and they decide at the bar that they are going to try and find Raj a woman. This doesn’t go very well, and even goes worse when Raj brings up the fact that he once had the hots for both Penny and Bernadette. Amy hopeful she was also of interest to Raj at one time has her bubble burst when Raj is emphatic that he never had feelings for her. Then she uses her womanly wiles to relate to Raj in the constant rejection department which make Raj start to like her, and this pleases Amy who rejects Raj, and now he wants her more. Confused yet? Back at the D&D game, the guys have made their way to finding Santa and are about to save him, when Sheldon paralyzes both Howard and Stewart and opts to leave Santa to die because he didn’t bring his Pop pop back to life when he was a child. Leonard is less than thrilled about this outcome because he gave up sex with his girlfriend to play D&D and have Sheldon ruin the game. All is well though because that night Sheldon has a dream that Santa stops by to apologize for not bringing his Pop pop back, and then tries to kill Sheldon. You know what they say about karma…
