Jack and Renee arrive at the United Nations, and greet Secret Service Agent Molly O'Connor, the head of President Hassan's protection detail. O'Connor briefs them on the evacuation plan: Hassan and his family will be taken by a seven agent detail, along with two members of Hassan's security force, through a service tunnel running parallel to the PATH lines into New Jersey, as soon as the vehicles are ready. Jack asks to see the itinerary, but first agrees to speak to President Hassan, who is waiting in the council chamber. Jack enters, and greets Hassan before telling him that he and his family will be taken out via the tunnels in the next ten minutes. Hassan chuckles, saying that he had hoped to leave the UN on a procession down Fifth Avenue after the signing ceremony. Jack replies that he and the President still believes that will happen.

So, 5-person Engine loses a firefighter, and Boden haphazardly decides to pull a firefighter from 4-person Truck? Which puts Truck down to 3 firefighters? And that goes on for at least two shifts, because Herrmann doesn't know how to do his job? Sure, why the hell not. The contrived sitcom C-plot demands it!
I enjoyed this episode. However, I missed the reason why they had to shut the door after each firefighter got a victim out of the salon and the meter couldn't drop below 15. Can someone explain why, exactly?
On her parallel route down the altar, recently engaged Robin has a hard time wearing her newly resized ring out in public. Turns out she's used to getting everything for free -- as seen in the first song and dance number since "The Suit Song" -- and now her engagement ring eclipses her beauty and she's both invisible in bars and is asked to pay for her coffee. (Gasp!)
Ted has difficulty finding common ground with perky-breasts Carly (TV? No. Sports? Nope. Books? Nada. Some version of "Stars Wars" will do) but proceeds to hook up with her anyway, if only to shut sweaty, sex-crazed Barney up. But worry not, Barney won't cheat on Robin, no more than she cheats on him by removing the ring from her finger just to get a beer.
While Leonard and Penny are eating dinner together, Penny asks about his on-going work with a particle detector and superfluids. Leonard is impressed even though Penny did write it down on a napkin from a previous day's discussion. The supercooled helium has a habit of crawling up the insides of the container and spilling out all over the place. Not unlike Sheldon's ant farm adds Penny. Leonard then starts to talk about super-fluid vacuum theory for a moment and then stops. If one images three-dimensional-space on the surface of a n-dimension bubble wonders Leonard. He gets excited and he runs off to discuss it with Sheldon. As Leonard is leaving Penny yells out to him, "Okay, but you two use the kitchen island, the coffee table won't support both your weight." After describing his theory, Sheldon considers it rather noisily. Leonard then wonders if it is any good. Sheldon replies that it is good and he likes it. Sheldon gives Leonard a sticker with a kitty on it saying "Me-WOW". Even though Leonard is defensive that he is not a pre-schooler, he does take the sticker since it's one of the few compliments Sheldon has ever given him.
Bernadette is embarrassed about her beauty pageant past in which Penny agrees. Then, she blurts out that Amy writes "Little House on the Prairie" fan fiction that includes herself and Sheldon, and posts it online. Amy wants to know what she did to deserve that. Bernadette replies that she had to get the attention off of her, and that tearing down other women was part of her pageant training. Amy insists that it's personal so Penny concludes that it's about her and Sheldon. That is not true. Her story is about a physicist named Cooper time travelling back in time and meeting a pioneer woman named Amelia. Penny quickly finds it and starts to read as Bernadette listens carefully.
Sheldon is frustrated that their troll hasn't responded. He wants to get back at him. Raj is creating some fake accounts to add positive comments about their paper. Finally the troll responds that Sheldon and Leonard's juvenile attempts at humor go to prove that the physicists at Caltech are nothing but a bunch of engineers which really insults Sheldon and Howard. Sheldon challenges the troll to meet them face to face. Leonard wants him to delete that message, but before Sheldon can comply he gets an Internet video call. Sheldon freaks out and slams his computer shut, thus not taking the call. 041b061a72
