Sheldon goes on Ira Flatow's 'Science Friday' show on NPR to talk about his accidental discovery of a new element, but continues to convey his bad attitude for the undue recognition he's received. To help, Amy decides to bring in Wil Wheaton to talk to Sheldon about coping with notoriety. Wil tells Sheldon how difficult his life was because of all the negative feedback and backlash he got for being on Star Trek and how he got past it. Leonard also tries to help Sheldon by proving that his theory was wrong, which results in Sheldon getting upset with him and longing for the spotlight again. Meanwhile, Koothrapalli stays with Bernadette and Wolowitz, but he ends up getting kicked out because he's the perfect houseguest and makes both Wolowitz and Bernadette feel inadequate about their contribution to the household.
