According to a leaked report, Kripke learns about Sheldon's recent breakup and shows interest in asking Amy out which upsets Sheldon. Amy, who is also asked out by Stuart, turns both of them down. The boys urge Sheldon to move on, and he goes on to ask an attractive woman out, but she turns him down.

Amy and Sheldon meet awkwardly at the stairs where Amy tells him that she turned Kripke down. Sheldon also confesses that he has been asking other women out, which makes Amy "hurt and upset."

A new promo shows Penny taunting Leonard about not being sporty enough. Penny says: "You twisted your ankle while playing scrabble." The scene changes to the men learning fencing, with Kripke as their mentor, and the voice-over declares, "It's an episode that's really cutting edge."

The video shows everyone wearing white and wielding fencing swords. Sheldon asks, "Can I stab one of my friends?" and Kripke replies, "We don't call it a stab, we call it a touch." Sheldon, with his usual sense of humour, says if he wanted to touch one of his friends, he would be called into human resources.
