You Make a Mess, You Clean It Up

A/N: I woke up at 6 am with this in my head. :P I felt bad for Penny at the end of The Einstein Approximation so my brain had to fix it. Also Bernadette rules! I officially want to keep her forever!

"Aren't you going to clean this up?"

"I'm sorry. I don't work here." And with that, Sheldon turned to walk away, leaving Penny fuming in the dining area.

Bernadette walked up behind her. "Here I've got this. Sheldon!" she called.

Sheldon poked his head around the corner. "Yes?"

"Now what did your mother teach you about making messes?"

"That Jesus still loves me even if Mommy didn't at the moment."

"And..." Bernadette prompted. Sheldon let out a sigh.

"And to always clean it up," he said begrudgingly. "But I don't want too!"


"Okay!" Sheldon said cringing and ran off to the kitchen to get a broom. Penny turned and stared at Bernadette, stunned.

"That's it. We're going to have to keep you around full-time from now on!"
