Not exactly thrilled by the predatory older types who are sniffing around his beautiful daughter, Johnny (Denis Leary) sets up Gigi (Elizabeth Gillies) on a date with a boy her own age in the new episode "Hard Out There for a Pimp." Meanwhile, Bam Bam and Rehab (Robert Kelly, John Ales) are excited by their apparent discovery of a whole new music genre. John Corbett and Elaine Hendrix also star.
As Norm and Kevin explore the stunning transformation that has been wrought on the 1966 Garrison Colonial, designer Michele Kelly shows Richard some clever technological features built into the new kitchen. Homeowner Jody and her brother, a designer, show Kevin how he customized spaces over the garage to reflect each daughter's personality. Interior designer Robin Gannon shows Norm how she updated the older parts of the house.
Some special-effects technicians were banned from the ranch -- which was what they named their own firm after George Lucas ordered them out of his headquarters -- and Leonard and Sheldon (Johnny Galecki, Jim Parsons) might do well to heed that in "The Skywalker Incursion." They try to visit Lucas' Skywalker Ranch while en route to a speaking engagement. Howard and Bernadette (Simon Helberg, Melissa Rauch) have a feud involving "Doctor Who."
Cat and Vincent's (Kristin Kreuk, Jay Ryan) search for Liam (Jason Gedrick) could be helped by information about a "Patient X" -- which also happens to be the title of this episode. J.T. (Austin Basis) is assisted by Tess (Nina Lisandrello) in determining all the facts about his current condition. Nicole Gale Anderson also stars.
