Synopsis: The guys are all gaming on their laptops in the living room. They’ve reached a gate in their game and are now under attack by a hoard of goblins. They all die. Leonard hears Penny come home and when he brings her her mail, she’s kissing another guy. Leonard returns to the apartment awkward and a little traumatized. Leonard decides he’s going to move on and try to find someone more his speed. Sheldon suggests Lesley Winkle. The next day, he pays Lesley a visit. He asks her to dinner and movie. She has a different thought. She wants to jump right to the good night kiss. The experiment fails. Back at the apartment, Howard, Raj and Shelden are playing Jenga. Leonard arrives home. They’re playing Jenga because the internet is down. Howard takes them all to a seniors dance class to meet ladies. Another day and Leonard comes home with groceries and badly singing along to music in his earbuds. Leonard has decided to get a genetically designed hypoallergenic cat. Sheldon points out that he’s not been rejected by Penny because he has not yet asked her out. So he marches over to do just that. He asks her to dinner and she accepts. She’s excited. As the time approaches and Leonard dresses, it’s bad. He’s sweat entirely through he shirt. He starts freaking out. It only gets worse. He starts having a panic attack. Suddenly, he decides to have Sheldon cancel the date. Then he stops and tells him the truth. They go on their “date.” He makes excuses for the guys not showing up. When she asks about physics he doesn’t have much to say on it. But it’s awkward. She talks about her ex and her breakup pattern. He decides to do some physics magic. The olive escapes, he smashes his head under the table and cuts his head open. They head back, but Penny is concerned he should go to the doctor. As they say good night Penny asks if it was supposed to be a date. Leonard gets all awkward again trying to be casual. He escapes by saying he might have a concussion and heads to the apartment to lay down.
