The Big Bang Theory: The Pork Chop Indeterminacy

Sheldon gets a visit from his twin sister, Missy, who seems to be a much more interesting person that Sheldon believes she is. Leonard, Howard and Rajesh all seem to have a crush on her and everyone seems willing to fight for her love. This results in Sheldon deciding to pick out who she will go out with (despite her disapproval), but when the guys finally have enough strength to actually ask her out, they find out she is only interested in one person.

This episode is sometimes referred to as "The Shiksa Indeterminacy".



Episode Goofs
Missy's Texas accent seems to come and go as it pleases. When we first meet her she has no accent, however, in her following scene, she now sports a very noticeable accent. Throughout the rest of the episode she might have an accent in one scene but not in another.



Cultural References
The letter W has been changed to a V on a can of Soda in Leonard and Sheldon's apartment; the soda should read A&W, a popular root beer brand.
