The CBS sitcom “The Big Bang Theory” is a successful blend of superheroes, science, and science fiction, making it a binge-worthy show that aired for 12 seasons starting in 2007. The show owes its popularity to various factors, including the spot-on performances by its cast members, such as Kaley Cuoco as Penny and Jim Parsons as Sheldon Cooper.
Each character in the show was perfectly cast, and over the years, viewers got to witness the various seasons of their personalities. One character, Howard Wolowitz, played by Simon Helberg, elicited strong opinions from fans, both positive and negative. However, regardless of what fans thought of him, his most memorable moment on the show is still the same for everyone.
In Season 7, Howard enlists the help of his friends to sing a romantic song filled with scientific references and sprinkled with mentions of “Doctor Who” and mac and cheese for his wife, Bernadette, who is forced to quarantine on the anniversary of their first date. Despite being a self-proclaimed geek, Howard’s song is heartwarming, and years later, fans still cherish it as one of the best moments of the show.
The song’s co-writers, “Big Bang Theory” alumni and Garfunkel and Oates members Kate Micucci and Riki Lindhome, took around a week to write the quirky and complex lyrics. They were amazed by Simon Helberg’s musical abilities, and he nailed the song in a single take. The episode shows a touching moment between Howard and Bernadette, reminding viewers of the beauty of love and the importance of having someone who inspires them to sing.
