You guys are big on ping pong, right? How’s that going? Where are you in the standings?
I don’t want to talk about it. Just had a tough defeat in the tournament. You know, the thing is, the director who bought us the table? I’m positive he goes back and practices. Because I always lose to him in the tournament. And, then Kaley comes in wearing short, sexy clothes to like mess with us. So this year in the tournament, I wore short, sexy clothes.
Did it work for you?
No! Could you imagine me in a tank top and hot pants? Exactly! I don’t know what I was thinking. I lost. I distracted myself because I was itching.
All of that aside, is Kaley pretty good anyway?
She’s very good. She’s got a mean attitude and a mean forehand. And I think that’s what works for her.
On the last question, someone asked about Leonard Nimoy and the infamous napkin signed by him. It turns out the napkin used in the episode was not the real one. They got the real one later. Kunal pulled out his iPhone and passed around a picture of Jim Parsons holding the real napkin. This picture was priceless. The pure joy on Jim’s face was incredible. After that, Simon Helberg (Howard Wolowitz) took over for a brief chat. The following are excerpts of that interview.
In terms of the show’s evolution do you have any idea where things will be going?
I think that these guys don’t change much. You can’t teach an old dog new tricks. They’ve figured out everything to a T and when they stray, they kind of get pulled back in. So, I think we’re going to see them constantly try to break a little from their habits, or from my mother, from being heavily immersed in video games, but they always come back and that’s where they’re comfortable.
When they’re in the Arctic and you sit down on the couch and Sheldon’s first response is, “That’s my spot...”
They can travel across the world and into a hut and its going to look exactly the same as the apartment, and he’s going to have his spot and there’s going to be freeze dried Chinese food.
With your mom, is it hard not to laugh at that stuff? It’s so hysterical, I don’t know how you don’t laugh when you’re shooting it.
