The Big Bang Theory

Pull out your pocket watches because it's almost time for The Big Bang Theory!

The CBS smash comedy's annual Valentine's Day episodes are always a fan-favorite treat, and this year, viewers are being gifted with something so much sweeter than a box of chocolates: Sheldon (Jim Parsons) on a train. That's right, our locomotive-enthusiast is taking a romantic rendezvous up to Napa via train on a double date with his lady Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim Bialik), Howard (Simon Helberg) and Bernadette (Melissa Rauch).

And as for Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Penny (Kaley Cuoco)? The rekindled couple is opting for a "quiet weekend at home," but of course, the beauty and the geek duo are bound to get into some kind of dating dispute. Brace yourselves, because we've got your exclusive first look at The Big Bang Theory's V-Day extravaganza, as Leonard calls out Penny (in front of the entire gang!) about something we've all been mildly concerned about: Her excessive drinking. Yikes!

When Bernadette suggests that Leonard and Penny should join the foursome on their trip to Napa, the experimental physicist quickly declines her offer saying, "I'm not sure it's such a great idea to take Penny to where wine comes from." Oooh, snap!

Penny, naturally with a large glass of red wine in her hand, shoots her boyfriend daggers as he giggles with the rest of the group. "What? It's a joke," he says. "Come on, we bust on each other! I wear dorky glasses, you might have a problem—it's all for laughs."

So does this spell doom for our couple's sweetheart celebrations? Nope! Penny quips, "That'd really piss me off if I didn't have a buzz going on." Ahh, classic Penny; don't ever change, doll.

Take a look at our full exclusive scene above to find out if Sheldon and Howard are going to—gasp!—end up wearing the same pocket watch whilst on the train together. As Sheldon puts it, "It would be embarrassing." Oh yes, Shelly, that would be embarrassing.

Tune into The Big Bang Theory's Valentines Day episode, "The Locomotive Manipulation," Thursday at 8 p.m. on CBS.
