The Big Bang Theory - The Bachelor Party Corrosion

Pre-wedding celebrations are held after Penny (Kaley Cuoco) and Leonard (Johnny Galecki) have returned from Vegas, and worked out their post-marriage issues, as Howard (Simon Helberg) and Raj (Kunal Nayyar) kidnap Leonard and Sheldon (Jim Parsons) for a Mexican road trip in Richard Feynman's van for an overdue bachelor party celebration. This leaves the ladies on their own to celebrate Penny's wedding. Neither weekend goes as planned.

While the road trip comes to an abrupt stop thanks to a flat tire that proves to be more than a match for the four scientists, eventually leading to the death of Feyman's van (the scientist's actual van was used in the episode), back home Penny's celebration becomes more about the fall-out of coming clean to you parents when Bernadette (Melissa Rauch) and Amy (Mayim Bialik) discover Penny hasn't told them that she's now married. The episode is fun, if a bit goofy as the scientists' inability to perform a relatively simple task quickly spirals out of control thanks to their out-of-the-box solutions (a common theme over the show's seasons). "The Bachelor Party Corrosion" also brings back Keith Carradine as Penny's father Wyatt and gives us a glimpse at the complicated childhood of Amy.
