A/N: This was originally a one shot missing scene...but I had to write another missing scene after last week's episode. A place to collect stand-alone missing-scene style one shots.
The Nudity Revelation (from "The Werewolf Transformation")
"How could it have only been her 'bottom and her breasts'?" Leonard asks Sheldon as they step inside their apartment to wait while Penny sets up a makeshift barber chair in her kitchen.
"Well, obviously it was not literally only her buttocks and her breasts. But as her vulva was covered by pubic hair, I hardly saw that." Leonard's jaw clenches, and Sheldon rolls his eyes. "And I've seen the rest of her body before."
"How's that, exactly?" Leonard is fuming; his pinched mouth and the raised pitch of his voice give it away even to Sheldon's untrained eye. But although he's plenty aware that his roommate is angry, he can't for the life of him understand why.
"She prances around in very little clothing on a regular basis, Leonard. Howard or Raj would be equally compelled to admit that they had seen her legs, her torso and most of her back if only because we have seen her at the beach and sunbathing on the roof."
"That's totally different, Sheldon!"
"Well I fail to see the difference! I was already well aware that Penny is a well-proportioned woman with a pleasing waist to hip ratio, and that she has equally well-proportioned breasts and buttocks!" Leonard's mouth drops open at those words, but Sheldon barrels onward. "The only thing I learned from seeing her nude was that she has the Chinese character for soup tattooed on her right buttock!"
"She said that was courage," Leonard says quietly, almost to himself.
"I can assure you that she was incorrect. It is the Mandarin character for soup." He traces the lines of it in the air, and Leonard watches, seeming somewhat more confused-or maybe constipated-than angry. The look-whatever it is-gets more pronounced as Sheldon traces the character again, seeing the blue ink before his eyes in its exact placement on Penny's right buttock.
"So, you saw my girlfriend naked, and you didn't even enjoy it?"
"Leonard," Sheldon sighs his name, exasperated. "As I already stated, I have always been aware that Penny is an attractive woman. I never said that I did not enjoy seeing her naked. I merely stated that it gave me very little new information about her body." He pauses, considers for a moment. "Touching her breast was far more enlightening."
Leonard's mouth drops open again, and he splutters as Sheldon walks across the hall.
