Koothrappali is being honored by People Magazine's "30 under 30" for his discovery of a new planet. The guys all try to express their support and happiness for him except for Sheldon who can't understand why he's being honored for discovering something that already exists. As Raj gets cockier and cockier about it, Leonard and Wolowitz have a harder time being supportive and try to avoid him. Raj invites them all to a party the magazine is throwing for the honorees but they all decline coming. He invites Penny as his date and she accepts. He ends up getting really drunk in order to hang out with her.
