Sheldon's hot twin sister is in town, and the boys are more excited than Nikola Tesla on the Enterprise. (Ok, fine, I had to do some Googling for that joke.)
Missy Cooper (Courtney Henggeler, with a now-you-hear-it-now-you-don't Texas accent) comes to visit her fraternal twin "Shelly", as she calls him, while in town for a wedding. Leonard, Rajesh, and "BAM!" Howard immediately start tripping over each other to hit on her. In Raj's case, it takes some help in the form of an experimental medication for pathological shyness, the show's running gag for the night. Kunal Nayyar (Raj) was finally given a chance to shine in this episode: Raj was hilariously overconfident even as he sporadically lapsed into involuntary repetitive motions as a side-effect of the meds. He absolutely stole the episode - not an easy feat.
