He also asks his father to give advice to a nervous, pregnant Bernadette. In "The Allowance Evaporation", Raj after meeting his ex-girlfriends who said he was too spoiled and a momma's boy, tells his father that he was no longer taking any money from him.
His father was delighted that his last only unmarried offspring was going to stand on his own two feet. In "The Wedding Gift Wormhole", it's revealed that he is dating again and decides to set up Raj with a woman for an arranged marriage.
He returns in "The Propagation Proposition" via video chat after Raj has broken up with Anu; he is angry about any money he has lost due to the wedding being cancelled.

In his attempt at defense, Sheldon rats out what he considers similar behavior by Raj, Howard, and Leonard, prompting Mrs. Davis to summon them to her office, as well.
Davis later serves on the tenure committee that is considering Raj, Sheldon, Leonard, and Kripke for a vacant tenured position, causing each of them to try to win her favor.
Sheldon, in his effort to earn the position, offends her once again by giving her the box set for the miniseries Roots. Despite this, Sheldon is still short-listed for tenure, even if he offends Mrs.
Davis yet again by giving her what he thinks is a traditional handshake originating in African American communities. In season seven, Mrs.
Davis says that she is recently divorced because her husband cheated on her, and Raj attempts to strike up a conversation with her at a university mixer.
After offending her, Raj apologizes, and the two talk about their troubles. Following the mixer, while Raj is insistent that Mrs. Davis and he had a "moment", Howard disagrees.
Davis makes another appearance in season 8, where she informs Sheldon that he has to teach a class as a junior professor, and in season 11, has to deal with Leonard after he gives an embarrassing interview on the radio about the university.
Kurt Brian Patrick Wade is a tall, intimidating bodybuilder and Penny's ex-boyfriend at the beginning of the series.
In the pilot, Penny reveals that he cheated on her, and Leonard and Sheldon later go to his apartment and attempt to retrieve Penny's television set from him, but they were unsuccessful and Kurt apparently found them so irritating that they returned home without pants.
After Kurt sees Penny kissing Leonard, Leonard victoriously shouts to him, "That's right, you saw what you saw. That's how we roll in The Shire!

Raj falls apart and refuses to leave his apartment; however, after apologizing to him, Lucy and Raj start afresh. Raj and Lucy have a date at a library and communicate by text messages, and at the end, she offers to kiss him, but chickens out at the last second.
In "The Bon Voyage Reaction", Raj tries to introduce Lucy to the rest of the gang. Lucy becomes nervous at the thought of meeting so many new people that Raj suggests she meet just one of his friends first, to which she agrees.

This leads Raj to believe the two of them will get back together, but Lucy tells him she is with someone else. Although she is not seen, Lucy later texts Raj saying that she misses him and wants to get back together, but after finding out that he is also dating Emily, Lucy rebuffs Raj.
Lucy appears in season 10, where Raj invites her to his apartment along with his other ex-girlfriends to find out why he is still single.
Lucy mentions that she is now in a better relationship. Mike Rostenkowski Casey Sander is Bernadette's father and a tough retired police officer.
Mike has a rough and rude personality and often bullies others, although he deeply loves his daughter, calling Bernadette his "little girl". Before he is first seen, Bernadette establishes his personality by telling Howard a long list of subjects he cannot discuss with Mike, including Jimmy Carter , foreigners, homosexuals, and even Howard's Jewish identity.
In his first appearance, he tells Howard that, while he does not think highly of him, his respect for Howard grew when he learned he had been selected to become an astronaut.
However, after Howard expresses his fears about not returning from space, Mike tells him not to worry as Bernadette will have no trouble finding another suitable bachelor if Howard dies in space, much to the future astronaut's dismay.
In the season-five finale, Mike attends Howard and Bernadette's wedding and walks his daughter down the aisle.
In season six, Howard and Mike are pushed into a fishing weekend by their spouses, but neither man really wants to go. Mike suggests that they go to a casino to shoot craps.
Having earned more of Mike's respect, Howard is now able to address him as "Mike" rather than "Sir". In season seven, because his wife is out of town, Bernadette gets Mike to come to Howard's mother's house for Thanksgiving dinner, though he would rather watch football at home.
Since Sheldon understands football from growing up with his father, Mike and Sheldon bond and drink heavily together.
After insulting Howard, Mike later tells Howard that he is not "all that bad", but implies that this statement is untrue when he comments on his drunken state.
In "The Table Polarization", Mike, Bernadette, Raj, and Mike Massimino via Skype perform an intervention on Howard's decision to go back to space.
Mike mentions that Howard asked him to shoot him in the foot to avoid the first space mission, which Howard insists was a joke.
In season nine, he comes to Howard and Bernadette's house since they are talking about renovating and he comes over to help.
While Howard and he are busy under the foundations of the house, Mike asks Howard why he does not want kids, but Howard sets things straight when he tells Mike that it is actually Bernadette who does not want kids.
In the room above, Bernadette overhears this and tries to drown out the conversation by yelling "Earthquake! Bernadette had lied to her father about not wanting kids because she did not want to disappoint him.
Mike says he does not want to see her miss out since raising children was the most rewarding experience of his life, but Bernadette points out that her mother did everything while all Mike did was come home from work, sit on the couch, and drink beer, which is unrelated to raising kids.
Defeated, Mike leaves, saying this is really a conversation for husband and wife and tells Bernadette if her mother asks, he was at the Wolowitz house until He briefly comes back into the kitchen and sees Howard and Bernadette doing "dirty talk" and then disappears again through the doorway.
President Siebert Joshua Malina is the president of the California Institute of Technology. He is married and has a daughter. Siebert is often mentioned by Sheldon.
A recurring gag is that Sheldon often calls or visits Siebert in the middle of the night to get information, and usually gets a bitter response.
Siebert sends Sheldon on the expedition to the North Pole at the end of season two. In his first appearance, Siebert organizes a get-together with wealthy donors and faculty members to garner funds for the university's programs.
He urges the guys to make an appearance to schmooze the donors so they will give to their projects. Seeing Sheldon's behavior toward the donors, he asks that he not appear again.

Leonard even offered to relocate to New Delhi to be with her. He tries to keep their relationship a secret from the guys, but Sheldon discovers Priya in their apartment after spending the night together.
Leonard eventually reveals to the rest of the guys that he spent the night with Priya, as he is unable to bear the burden of keeping the secret.
It upsets both Raj, knowing that his sister is having sex with one of his best friends sometimes in Raj's bed , and Penny, who is revealed to harbour unresolved feelings for Leonard.
Priya soon becomes jealous of Penny and asks Leonard to stop spending time with her, which causes Penny, Amy, and Bernadette to hate her.
Priya contests Sheldon's roommate agreement with Leonard, employing her legal background to deny Sheldon power over him, but upon Amy's advice, Sheldon drafts a new agreement and blackmails Leonard into signing it by threatening to tell Priya's parents she is dating Leonard, which she cannot bear because they want her to date an Indian although her father would accept her dating Howard due to his belief that Jews are financially savvy and do not drink much.
At the end of season four, Leonard overhears her parents claiming that she is moving back to India, which he interprets as the end of their relationship, leading him to expose their secret relationship to her parents.
At Howard's suggestion, Leonard and Priya also attempt to simulate intercourse, but when it comes time for her to remove her clothing, Leonard's screen freezes up because of his exceeding the bandwidth.
Leonard later manages to get cue cards to help himself with a seduction speech to Priya, but while delivering it to her, he inadvertently reveals to her parents that they are cyber-dating they were in the same room as she when he called , with them acidly asking for him to continue with the speech.

Ramona Nowitzki, Ph. She meets Sheldon personally in the cafeteria and arranges to have dinner with him in his apartment.
Where other people might be worried about such behavior being reminiscent of stalking, Sheldon reacts positively to Ramona by appreciating the fact that he is getting a free dinner.
During their date, the rest of the gang is sitting on the couch as spectators of this strange turn of events. She keeps "helping" Sheldon by arranging suitable working conditions for him, such as getting breakfast for him at the cafeteria and giving him foot rubs.
Unfortunately for Sheldon, she overdoes her insistence that Sheldon dedicate his time solely for work, depriving him of his favorite hobbies such as playing games, watching TV, and going for paintball with the guys.
Even more unfortunately for Sheldon, he cannot seem to get rid of her, especially when she settles herself in his apartment.
Ramona proves to be irritating for the entire group, especially when she assumes that Penny likes Sheldon. She still asks Penny to be sisters with her.
She makes it difficult for anyone to communicate with him and scares them away. Eventually, Sheldon solves the problem he has been working on. Enthusiastic about his solution, he asks Ramona how he can reward her for all her help.

Raj later bumps into Ruchi at a bar while watching a cricket match with Howard and they eventually hook up. Afterwards, Ruchi wants to keep things casual with Raj, which he has difficult maintaining, especially after a date with her when she reveals that she does not believe in soul mates and sees romantic love more as a bio-chemical reaction.
Despite this, Raj continues to see Ruchi to have sex with her. While she is on bed rest, Bernadette becomes convinced that Ruchi is trying to steal her job and asks Raj to investigate her suspicions.
After revealing to Raj she is taking over all of Bernadette's projects, Raj tells Bernadette and tries to defend Ruchi like a boyfriend would, pointing out Bernadette's hypocrisy as she would most likely have stolen from other people's projects as well.
When she finds out about this, Ruchi is not happy and promptly dumps Raj. Wil Wheaton plays a fictionalized version of himself.
Wil played Wesley Crusher in Star Trek: The Next Generation , a character that Sheldon idolized as a child.

In season three, Sheldon enters a trading-card game tournament Mystic Warlords of Ka'a to confront Wheaton. When Sheldon is about to defeat his hated rival, Wheaton tells him that he missed the "Dixie Trek" convention because his grandmother had died.
In sympathy, Sheldon deliberately messes up his next move to benefit Wheaton. Wheaton reveals that he lied about his grandmother and then wins the game by taking advantage of the opening Sheldon leaves him.
Wheaton later plays in a bowling match against Sheldon, where he uses gamesmanship again, breaking up Leonard and Penny to win.
In season four, Wheaton appears at a special screening of Raiders of the Lost Ark and uses his celebrity status to go to the front of a long line.
This antagonizes Sheldon, who derides him as the " Jar Jar Binks of the Star Trek universe". Wheaton and his entourage effectively prevented Sheldon and his friends from attending the screening when the last seat in the theater went to the person directly in front of them in line.
Ultimately, Sheldon steals the reels containing the prints of the film and Wheaton leads a mob of angry audience members after Sheldon.
In season five, Wheaton invites the guys to a party at his house and appears to be genuinely sorry for his past actions, giving Sheldon a signed Wesley Crusher action figure as a way of thanking Sheldon for being a fan.
His gesture is met with a renunciation of his "mortal enemy" status and a hug from Sheldon. Wheaton is invited to Howard's bachelor party, where he films the toasts and uploads them to the Internet, getting Howard and Raj in trouble with Bernadette.
In season six, Wheaton appears in a Star Trek -themed episode of Sheldon's web-series Fun with Flags and insults Amy after she criticizes his performance.
After Sheldon ditches Amy to spend time with Wheaton, Amy becomes angry with Sheldon, who later unknowingly becomes intoxicated and almost starts a fist fight with Wheaton, demanding an apology.

In season eight, Wheaton invites Penny to appear on his podcast , where she talks about her acting career. Leonard and Penny get into an argument on air, much to the amusement of Wheaton.
In season nine, Wheaton introduces Adam Nimoy , son of Mr. Spock portrayer Leonard Nimoy , to Sheldon, for Sheldon to be interviewed for a documentary that Adam Nimoy is producing about Spock and his impact on popular culture.
In a later episode, Wheaton fills in for Sheldon when he joins Leonard, Howard, and Raj for the midnight premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
When he arrives at the theater, the audience immediately jeers him for dressing as Spock, but Wheaton explains that he did so intentionally because he believes the audience should not take whether the film succeeds or fails so seriously.
He appears again to celebrate Sheldon's birthday in the show's th episode, "The Celebration Experimentation". In season eleven, Sheldon wants to replace Arthur Jeffries in the role of Professor Proton, following Jeffries' death, and asks Wheaton to be his acting coach for the part.
However, when Wheaton somehow gets the part instead, Sheldon is dismayed and after many unsuccessful attempts to get his friends to boycott the franchise, he demands that Wheaton turn down the role.
Wheaton refuses, claiming he wants to inspire young scientists and Sheldon begins to consider him an enemy again.
However, after watching the show Sheldon likes Wheaton's portrayal of Prof. Proton and gets jealous when he sees that Wheaton has brought Howard to be a guest on his show.
Although Sheldon apologizes to Wheaton, mending their friendship, Wheaton refuses to bring Sheldon as a guest on his show and instead invites Amy to be a guest on the show.
At the end of season eleven, Wil is Sheldon and Amy's first choice to officiate their wedding ceremony, but is replaced when Mark Hamill becomes available.
When the guys find out about the game, they get Stuart to quit and Wheaton invites Leonard, asking him not to tell anyone.
Leonard then tells Penny and she tells Amy and Bernadette; the girls stalk Wheaton in an attempt to get themselves invited when they hear that Manganiello from Magic Mike will be there.
Because of that indiscretion, Wil kicks out Leonard and admonishes the guys for using him for his connections, and says that one of the worst things about being a celebrity is not knowing whether someone will like him for himself.
Penny sits next to Shatner telling him he tells "Grandpa Jokes" and Bernadette tells Abdul-Jabbar how she and her father used to watch him, while Amy creeps out Manganiello and is moved away from him.
Wheaton then allows them all to take a photo together and send it to the guys as payback, which Leonard himself admits they all deserved.
Wil Wheaton, LeVar Burton , Leonard Nimoy in voice-over only , Brent Spiner , William Shatner and George Takei have all appeared on the show, making the Star Trek franchise the most represented franchise on the show in terms of guest appearances.
Marissa Johnson Lindsey Kraft is married to Penny's ex-boyfriend, Zack Johnson. They meet with Leonard and Penny and they want Leonard to father their child since Zack is infertile.
Debbie  Malvina  Wolowitz voiced by Carol Ann Susi is Howard's over-protective, controlling, belittling, but loving and caring stereotypical Jewish mother.
The character is not shown on-screen with the exception of one episode in season six in which her body, but not face, is briefly shown. Wolowitz's raspy voice is heard usually in scenes at her house, which she shares with Howard.
She talks to Howard always by yelling at him from another room, which results in awkward conversations with Howard yelling back at her. In a flashback, when the guys hear her yelling in a masculine voice, they ask Howard if that was his father, to which Howard replies, "If she grows any more hair on her face, yes".
Wolowitz is also described as being enormously obese and wearing a wig and painted-on eyebrows. She seems to be oblivious to Howard's work as an engineer and treats him as though he is still a child.
She is a master at Wheel of Fortune and guessing answers at game shows. She frequently refers to Leonard, Sheldon, and Raj as Howard's "little friends" as in, "I made some cookies and Hawaiian Punch for you and your little friends!
Howard often makes references to his mother as being a "crazy old lady", but deep down, he is deeply attached to his mother and quite happy to be treated like a child.
She is also noted to be on hormone replacement therapy , and she wants to " play doctor " with Raj when he asks to sleep over. When Howard reveals that he has proposed to Bernadette and she has accepted, she collapses, causing Howard to panic and dislocate his shoulder while trying to barge into the bathroom to help her.
The timing leads him to believe that she may not like Bernadette who is Catholic and has suffered a heart attack from the shock of the news. In actuality, her fainting was due to food poisoning from the food she ate while meeting Bernadette and was completely unrelated to Howard's news.
She has graciously accepted Bernadette as her daughter-in-law and is impressed by Bernadette's doctorate. September in Oak Park , Illinois ist ein US-amerikanischer Schauspieler und Stand-up-Comedian.

Im US-Fernsehen hatte Newhart mehrere eigene Sitcoms. Auf NBC lief von bis The Bob Newhart Show Folgen. When the co-worker ended his participation by taking a job in New York, Newhart continued the recordings alone, developing this type of routine.
Dan Sorkin, a disc jockey at a radio station who later became the announcer-sidekick on Newhart's NBC series, introduced Newhart to the head of talent at Warner Bros.
The label signed him in , only a year after it was formed, based solely on those recordings. Newhart expanded his material into a stand-up routine he began to perform at nightclubs.
Newhart became famous mostly on the strength of his audio releases, in which he played a solo " straight man ".
Newhart's routine was to portray one end of a conversation usually a phone call , playing the comedic straight man and implying what the other person was saying.
His comedy album The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart was the first comedy album to make number one on the Billboard charts.
Newhart told a interviewer for PBS 's American Masters that his favorite stand-up routine is " Abe Lincoln vs. Madison Avenue ", which appears on this album.
In the routine, a slick promoter has to deal with Lincoln's reluctance to agree to efforts to boost his image. Chicago TV director and future comedian Bill Daily , who was Newhart's castmate on The Bob Newhart Show , suggested the routine to him.
Newhart became known for an intentional stammer, in service to his unique combination of politeness and disbelief at what he was supposedly hearing.
Newhart has used the delivery throughout his career. A follow-up album, The Button-Down Mind Strikes Back , was released six months later and won Best Comedy Performance - Spoken Word that year.
Subsequent comedy albums include Behind the Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart , The Button-Down Mind on TV , Bob Newhart Faces Bob Newhart , The Windmills Are Weakening , This Is It , Best of Bob Newhart , and Very Funny Bob Newhart Years later, he released Bob Newhart Off the Record , The Button-Down Concert , and Something Like This , an anthology of his s Warner Bros.
On December 10, , publicist and comedy album collector Jeff Abraham revealed that a "lost" Newhart track from about Paul Revere existed on a one-of-a-kind acetate, which he owns.
The track made its world premiere on episode of the Comedy on Vinyl podcast. Newhart's success in stand-up led to his own short-lived NBC variety show in , The Bob Newhart Show.
The show lasted only a single season, but it earned Newhart a Primetime Emmy Award nomination and a Peabody Award.
The Peabody Board cited him as:. A merry marauder, who looks less like St. George than a choirboy, Newhart has wounded, if not slain, many of the dragons that stalk our society.
In a troubled and apprehensive world, Newhart has proved once again that laughter is the best medicine. In the mids, Newhart appeared on The Dean Martin Show 24 times and on The Ed Sullivan Show eight times.
Newhart guest-hosted The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson 87 times, and hosted Saturday Night Live twice, in and In addition to stand-up comedy, Newhart became a dedicated character actor.
This led to other series, such as Bob Hope Presents the Chrysler Theatre , Captain Nice , two episodes of Insight , and It's Garry Shandling's Show.
He reprised his role as Dr. Bob Hartley on Murphy Brown , appeared as himself on The Simpsons , and played a retired forensic pathologist on NCIS.

His films include 's Alan Jay Lerner musical On a Clear Day You Can See Forever , the Norman Lear comedy Cold Turkey , Mike Nichols 's war satire Catch 22 , the Disney animated feature The Rescuers and its sequel The Rescuers Down Under as the voice of Bernard, and the Will Ferrell holiday comedy Elf Newhart played the President of the United States in the comedy First Family He made a cameo appearance as a sadistic but appreciative CEO at the end of the comedy Horrible Bosses Newhart's most notable exposure on television came from two long-running programs that centered on him.
He was very interested in the starring role of dry psychologist Bob Hartley, with Suzanne Pleshette playing his wry, loving wife, Emily, and Bill Daily as neighbor and friend Howard Borden.
Nevertheless, it was an immediate hit. The show eventually referenced what made Newhart's name in the first place.
Apart from the first few episodes, it used an opening-credits sequence featuring Newhart answering a telephone in his office.
According to co-star Marcia Wallace , the entire cast got along well, and Newhart became close friends with both Wallace and co-star Suzanne Pleshette.
In addition to Wallace as Bob's wisecracking, man-chasing receptionist Carol Kester, the cast included Peter Bonerz as amiable orthodontist Jerry Robinson; Jack Riley as Elliot Carlin, the most misanthropic of Hartley's patients; character actor and voice artist, John Fiedler as milquetoast Emil Petersen; and Pat Finley as Bob's sister, Ellen Hartley, a love interest for Howard Borden.

By , the show's ratings were declining and Newhart wanted to end it, but was under contract to do one more season.
The show's writers tried to rework the sitcom by adding a pregnancy, but Newhart objected: "I told the creators I didn't want any children, because I didn't want it to be a show about 'How stupid Daddy is, but we love him so much, let's get him out of the trouble he's gotten himself into'.
Newhart read the script and he agreed it was very funny. He then asked, "Who are you going to get to play Bob? In the last episode of the fifth season, not only was Bob's wife, Emily, pregnant, but his receptionist, Carol, was, too.
In the first show of the sixth season, Bob revealed his dream of the pregnancies and that neither Emily nor Carol was really pregnant.
Marcia Wallace spoke of Newhart's amiable nature on set: "He's very low key, and he didn't want to cause trouble. I had a dog by the name of Maggie that I used to bring to the set.
And whenever there was a line that Bob didn't like—he didn't want to complain too much—so, he'd go over, get down on his hands and knees, and repeat the line to the dog, which invariably yawned; and he'd say, 'See, I told you it's not funny!
Nope, never! Newhart discontinued the series in after six seasons and episodes. Wallace said of its ending, "It was much crying and sobbing. It was so sad.
