The Big Bang Theory kicked off Friday morning in Ballroom 20 with a hilarious discussion moderated by Craig Ferguson. Here are our top seven moments from the panel!
1) Musical Theatre
Garfunkel and Oates (Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci) opened the panel with a performance of their song “If I Didn’t Have You,” originally written for Howard. “We couldn’t have imagined we’d get to sing this song. For The Big Bang Theory fans at Comic-Con,” they added, to cheers from the audience.
2) Murder Most Emmy
“Who was the genius who decided to kill off Professor Proton?” host Craig Ferguson asked. Steve Molaro laughed, and admitted that it was his idea. The story choice was an act of revenge against Bob Newhart, who had won the show’s only Emmy Award in the role.
3) Family Reunion
Molaro divulged a fun fact from the season 7 episode starring James Earl Jones and Carrie Fisher. As Jones only provided the voice for Darth Vader on Star Wars, he and Fisher had never met until they both arrived on the set of The Big Bang Theory.
“When they approached each other,” Molaro laughed, “The first thing Carrie said was “DAD!””
