First of all, I hope Kaley heals quickly!
Oy vey, poor writers! There's a taping tonight-- I hope this wasn't a Penny-heavy episode, since they did the bulk of their rehearsals with Kaley Cuoco in one piece! Next week is a hiatus, though, so at that point, I bet they could just work it into the upcoming scripts. They're going two on-one off until Thanksgiving.
