A promo for the episode opens with Sheldon bickering to Leonard about Bert's achievement. He says, " I can't believe I was surpassed by a geologist." He then he takes a rock in his hands and asks, "If rock is so great, how come paper beats it?"

The voice-over declares, "Professional jealousy can be hazardous to their health." The scene changes to Leonard carrying a limping Sheldon back to their apartment. "I tried to let go of that anger and threw a rock into my foot<" the physicist explains to Amy and Penny, who are shocked to see him hurt.

In the previous episode of The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon and Amy combined the samples of their skin cells together into a neural network. Following the success of their experiment, the physicist suggests to take their cellular synthesis to the next level and make a baby.

But Amy revealed that she is not ready to have a baby yet. Soon after, Sheldon tries to seduce his girlfriend by decorating their apartment, dressing up as a Casanova and showing off his flamenco moves to impress his lady, but was unsuccessful in his endeavour.
