Last night, they reran the episode where the guys meet Penny in the hallway and she invites them to her Halloween party. She just finishes telling them that they can come as "anything they want", when Howard points upward and rallies a charge with "To the sewing machines, men!"

I so love knowing that those 4 guys sew!

I didn't know what you meant by "Big Bang Theory" and now realize it's a TV show. Oh my! What I was thinking!!! Whew! I'm glad you cleared that up.

Yes!

My 23 yo DS (a near clone of Sheldon) loves that show & watches it every day.

I loved that line, and I made sure DH & DS heard it, because sewing is regarded as a "men don't do that" activity in my house.

One of my favorite memories is of my big burly DH sitting at my Bernina sewing miles and miles of curtain hems. He made my sewing machine look so dainty (and he did a great job on the hems).

It's not his favorite thing to do but he's more than willing to roll up his sleeves.

There's also a great episode of "King of the Hill" (animated series from Mike Judge) where Hank--a very manly Texan man--is lining the inside of a coffin. When his cronies tease him about sewing, he replies, "Upholstery is one of the original industrial arts." Ha!

A couple of my sons regard the sewing machine as just another tool, and they are quite correct. Cough - never mind I love them, but yes, they are a tool.

True, but tools do not a master make. As Yoda would say :-D

My husband and I love this show. One Saturday night, we watched three hours of it. Need to get a life! But we laughed so hard. We were hooked.

Would love to be able to respond as Sheldon does - he has the best lines and delivery.

The color combination of the T-shirts, plaid jackets with plaid pants, etc. worn by these actors just amaze me.
