Circumstances out of his control left Howard feeling a little underappreciated after his return from space on "The Big Bang Theory." Understandably, Bernadette had told everyone she wanted him to herself that first night, but she was also sick. So she conked out early, leaving Howard to check in on his friends.
His mother was getting busy with his dentist, Raj had already made plans with Stuart, and the rest of the gang were deep in a passionate game night at Leonard and Sheldon's place. They'd divided into teams based on gender with Penny and Amy absolutely dominating every activity they tried.
Even wrestling proved no match for the girls, as Penny pinned Sheldon in no time flat, and then furthered his humiliation by planing a kiss on his nose, followed by more on his cheeks. When he called Amy in to help, she joined in and helped Penny.
When Howard stopped by they were face deep into a pie-eating contest and shouted at him, so he spent his first day back on Earth "celebrating" at a diner. At least the waitress recognized him from television and gave him a free piece of cheesecake.
