    Trivia Answer
    The test audiences felt sorry for the guys. The idea was that she was tough on the outside and kind on the inside. The honesty of Sheldon and Lenny were supposed to bring that out.
    "What we didn’t anticipate, though, is how protective the audience would feel about our guys." co-creator Bill Prady said. "Early screenings of that version of the pilot led audiences to beg that the 'mean lady' would stay away from the 'sweet guys.'"
