The Big Bang Theory Wiki

Glenn is Bernadette's former professor and ex-boyfriend.

Character History[]

Glenn appeared in "The Love Car Displacement", in which he bumped into Bernadette and was introduced to Howard. He was going to do a panel on global warming, entitled "Remembering Snow: A Look Back", for the Institute of Interdisciplinary Studies’ symposium on "The Impact of Current Scientific Research on Societal Interactions". He didn't talk a lot, but Howard and Bernadette discussed him extensively, leading to an unpleasant night of issues in the hotel. According to Bernadette, Glenn was one of her professors in university, and, subsequently, they dated for a year. Howard is intimidated by his height and his assumption of Glenn's male anatomy (penis), and is concerned he won't be able to pleasure her to the extent of which Glenn did. Later, he offers to drive Penny back to Los Angeles, much to Leonard's horror at the science conference, which is filled with arguing. It was later confirmed by Amy Farrah Fowler that he gave her a ride back but it's unknown if they hooked up. Because of his use of the name "Bernie" for Bernadette, Howard has used this nickname since "The Love Car Displacement".
