The foursome spend their time working on their individual work projects, playing video games, watching science-fiction movies, or reading comic books. As they are self-professed nerds, all have little or no luck with popular women.

Series English with Antonia - The Big Bang Theory s01e02
The overview
Leonard fell for Penny's charm again and agreed to help her out by receiving a piece of furniture for her, which was not actually easy-peasy. Working their fingers to the bone, Sheldon and Leonard did manage to drag it to Penny's flat and were shocked at how messy it was.
At night Sheldon came to Penny's place and cleaned although Leonard did his best to bring him back to reason, eventually helping him. Penny freaked out and took her key back slamming the door after her and leaving them ashamed and sorry (well, not all of them :)). However Sheldon did not understand what was wrong.
Penny talked to Raj (if I can call it a conversation) and when Leonard came to drop a note under her door, she convinced him that they were ok.

Start learning - yeah, start talking a little - yeah, but not learn it, period. So listen to my story and maybe it will help to create your own ;)

This lesson is devoted to "The Big Bang Theory" season 1 episode 1

The overview
In this episode we meet the main characters, who are mainly scientific nerds with one exception - Penny - a young pretty girl. Sheldon and Leonard went to a high IQ sperm bank but failed to do what they were supposed to do there because of the social dilemma. When they came back home they found out that they had a new neighbour, Penny, and not without difficulty managed to invite her over for a dinner.
Following a very awkward chat Penny confessed that she had just broken up with a guy and burst into tears, which freaked Leonard and Sheldon out. Later she went to take a shower in their apartment and asked Leonard for a very unusual favour - to get her TVset from her ex-boyfriend. Meanwhile two friends came to visit Leonard and Sheldon - Howard, who was all  over himself to impress Penny, and Rajesh, who did the opposite - couldn't utter a word.
Leonard and Sheldon got out of this favour without the TVset and their pants, which made Penny feel really bad and pay for a dinner.
