The Pants Alternative (2010)

Type :   Production countries :  


Sheldon's friends come to his aid when his fear of public speaking stands between him and a coveted award. They offer to be Sheldon's X-Men, which Sheldon changes to his "C-Men" because his last name is Cooper. Leonard helps Sheldon psychologically, while Penny, in an attempt to boost his confidence, takes him to shop for a new suit. According to Howard, Raj shows Sheldon "some kind of Indian meditation crap", while he himself helps by pretending to "give a damn". Sheldon's "C-Men" all fail more or less and Leonard has an emotional breakdown, as his mother never acknowledged anything he had achieved. When the evening for the speech finally arrives, Sheldon panics and feels faint. Penny suggests that drinking alcohol might help, but as Sheldon has no experience with drinking whatsoever, he gets hammered and acts like a stereotypical stage comedian. His "speech", during which he removes his pants, gets put on YouTube under the title "Physicist Melts Down".

Trivia: The song Sheldon sings at the ceremony is the song "The Elements" by Tom Lehrer.

Note: Jim Parsons won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for this episode.

Title reference: Sheldon takes off his pants during his acceptance speech for the award.
