Sheldon acts as Mary's spy during a youth lock-in at church. Georgie is attracted to an older women.

on Young Sheldon...

You see
that little screw there?

Just go ahead
and tighten her up.

Like this?

Uh, run outside

and turn the water back on.

Who knew you were so handy?

Yeah. There's just things
guys need to be good at.

What else you good at?

Pastor Jeff is
looking to bring in

a youth pastor.
Well, hey, y'all.

I need to tell you something
in confidence.

No one's home.
It's just the two of us.

That's what I was hoping.

This is wrong.


Oh, hi.

Y'all ever had a youth lock-in?

Oh. No.
Whenever we talk about it,

Pastor Jeff shoots it down.

Kids love sleepovers.

Doing it here
shows them church can be fun.

I don't know.
The Methodists did it last year.

They're still cleaning up
Silly String.

Sounds like they had a blast.

I'll talk to Pastor Jeff.

but don't say I didn't warn you.

Lock-in? I love it!

Look at that.

You always say no.

That was before I had a baby
in the house.

I love him, but a night away
sounds like magic.

I'm on it. Hey, you want
to chaperone with me?

Oh. Uh...

I don't know.
Come on.

We'll pull an all-nighter.
It'll be fun.

Yeah, Mary.

Don't be such a lame-o.

I'm not a lame-o.

I'm a fun-o.

So you're in?

You betcha.

All right. Fun-o is in.

We got ourselves
a lock-in to plan.

♪ Nobody else
is stronger than I am ♪

♪ Yesterday I moved a mountain

♪ I bet I could be your hero

♪ I am a mighty little man

♪ I am a mighty little man.♪

Come on.

Need a hand?

This thing ate my quarters,
and now it's stuck.

That tends to happen
with number seven.

What you want to do
is a push-pull.

And here I was just pushing
like a damn fool.

I ain't seen you in here before.

Oh, I just moved back
from San Antonio.

Oh, big city girl.

Well, now I'm "living
back with my parents" girl.

That's all right.

I lived with my folks
not too long ago.

Isn't it weird?
Whenever you live at home,

no matter how old you are,
you feel like a teenager.

It did feel that way.
I'm Georgie.


And now that we're
on a first-name basis,

I'm gonna throw my underwear
in here.

And since I'm a gentleman,
I ain't gonna look.

You just looked.

I did.

You do not look as if you meet
the age requirement.

I'll be 16 next month.

Wil Wheaton plays
Wesley Crusher.

He's a child prodigy
who's very young

to be on the bridge of
a Galaxy-class starship.

But he's so intelligent

that most people
come to rely on him.


Sounds kind of familiar, huh?

Anybody home?

In here.


I have something fun for us
to do on Saturday night.

Ooh, what?
The church is thinking...


Hold on.

We're gonna do
an overnight lock-in

with pizza and games and movies.

Boys and girls?


I got to find cute pajamas.

So, what do you say?

Disrupting my sleep schedule

to fraternize
with children my own age?

We both know the answer.
I figured.

I just wanted to make sure.

Although I could use
someone as my eyes and ears

if the kids get
to causing trouble.

Are you asking me
to help enforce the rules

and police the other children?

Well, I wouldn't put it
quite like that.

Because if you do, I'm in.

Then what you said.

I need to pick out pajamas.

Did you give it
the old push-pull?

You're back soon.

What do you know

about getting wine stains
out of rayon?

You got to let it soak first.

Does that work?

I don't know.
That's just my answer

to every laundry question.


So, what'd you do
in San Antonio?

I was the weather girl
at the local TV station.

No way.

So you were on TV?

5:30 every morning.

More people are seeing me
right here.

Why'd you leave?

The station manager and I
broke up.

But now his new girlfriend

gets to be on TV.

At 8:30. That bitch.

That sucks.
And now

I'm here,
hoping I don't run into anybody

I went to high school with.

Well, I think you're safe.

Loretta there is one
of our younger customers.

Oh. Seems like a good place
to meet girls.

I met you.

But play it cool.

Loretta can get real jealous.


Last chance.
You can still come chaperone.

Hmm. All night in a church

with a bunch
of other people's kids.

And Pastor Jeff and Pastor Rob.

Ooh, two pastors?

Well, that is hard to say no to,

but let me give it a shot. No.

Your loss.
Missy, tell Billy we're leaving

in 20 minutes!

Billy's going, too, huh?

Yeah, of course.
And Brenda gonna chaperone?

She was less interested than you.

Oh, there's no way
she's less interested than me.


I've already confiscated
a can of shaving cream,

a box of stink bombs
and a PG-13 movie.

What was the movie? Dirty Dancing.

Which is redundant
because all dancing's dirty.

Well, I guess it's good
we got some eyes on the inside.

Okay, I think everyone's here.
Why don't we, uh,

circle up,
kick things off with a prayer.


Great. Take
your neighbor's hand.

Uh, Pastor Jeff,

why don't you get in
on this.

I'm neither holding hands
nor praying.

I don't even know
why I walked over here.

Heavenly Father, may this
evening bring us closer to you.

Keep us safe
and, most importantly,

Heavenly Father, help us
rock this night of fellowship.

In Jesus' name
we pray, amen.


I don't think he heard you.


He can't hear you
because he's not real.

One more time
for Sheldon, y'all.




I've seen this before.

They're big now,
but they're gonna get small.

Yeah. It's called Honey,
I Shrunk the Kids.

If you get scared, I'm here.


Bad news.

Baby's got a fever.

I need to go home.
Oh, no.

Well, don't worry about things
here. We got it covered.

Thank you.
If you want

extra help, I can come.

N-No, no, we need you here.

I think you and I
could handle it alone.

N... This is definitely
a three-person job.

Okay, if you say so.

All right, good luck.

I'm here in spirit.

If Sheldon
finds booze, dibs.

You know one of the best things

about working here? I always
smell like dryer sheets.

Is that a good thing?

Compared to how I used to smell,


Oh. I guess I'm done.

Actually, sometimes

these machines don't get it
all dry on the first go.

Let me buy you
another round.

Okay. Thanks.

How about, while this runs,
I take you to dinner?

How old are you?

Do not say 17.

Old enough.

Old enough to what? To drink?

Yes, ma'am.

How old do you think I am?

Well, I'm also old enough
to know that's a trap,


How old are you?


I was worried
you were gonna say "19."

Oh, no, I promise
I'm not 19.


Oh. Hi, Connie.

Is your power out?

No. Yours?

Well, I just like asking
everybody that question.

Of course it's out.

Don't yell at me.

I'm not yelling at you.

It's just
such a stupid question.

Maybe it's just my side
of the street.

Hey, I'm here by myself.
Why don't you

come by?
I'm good.

What, you'd rather sit
in the dark

than hang out with me?

I got candles.
I'm gonna get some takeout.

I'm good.

Ooh. Well, I could come over.
We could...

No. Bye.

Hey. It's George.

You want to grab a drink?

Well, I'm a little busy,
but, uh, sure.

Why not?
♪ Thank you
for bein' a friend. ♪

Gentlemen. How are we tonight?

Be cool.
Y'all wouldn't be

planning on throwing
any water balloons

at the girls later?

No, sir.

Nice try.

How did he know?

Maybe God told him.

What are you girls reading?

Christian Teen.

It's such a good one.


Really, girls?

How'd you know?
Because I am your mother

and I know everything.

You can keep this one.

What'd you get?

Backpack full of
water balloons.


Sassy magazine.


I found this Walkman.

Peg, they can have that.

Mine now.

You guys want to play sardines?

What's that?
It's like

except one person hides

and everyone else
tries to find them.

That sounds like an
acceptable form of fun.

It's only fun when we have
a really good hider,

so not you.

Hold on, I'm an excellent hider.

Do you know
how many small spaces

I've been stuffed into
in my life?

All right, go hide.

We'll close our eyes
and count to 20.

One. Two.

Why are you counting?

When you did the weather,

how'd you know
if it was gonna rain or not?

Oh, I didn't.

I just wore something low-cut
and read it off a screen.


Who's that?

That's my grandma.
She owns the Laundromat.

Oh, cool.
Not really.

I'm supposed to be there
right now. Hey,


funny seeing you here.

I'm just taking
a little dinner break.

This is my friend Mandy.

Hi, Mandy.


Here we go,

two margaritas.

You need a chair?

No, she's good.

Okay. Be back in a sec

to take your order.

I love their margaritas.

Yeah, but I'm driving,

so I'll probably
just have a sip or two.

Or none.
I'm pretty full on chips.

He is
such a responsible young man.

this was fun.

It was for me.

Nice meeting you.

♪ Don't know when
I've been so blue... ♪

Interesting bar, George.

Just wanted a change of pace.

Well, other than

the noise and smell,
you've picked a winner.

You want to go someplace else,
we'll go someplace else.

No, I'm happy to stay here
and bust your balls.

I see they've even got

a chili dog buffet,
and just the sight of it

makes me want to sit
on a toilet.



What brings you here?

Just having a drink
with my buddy Tom.

Tom, this is my neighbor Brenda.

Well, hello there.


Don't you usually hang out
at Nate's?

Well, I thought
that was more your spot.

Yeah, usually.

But tonight he took me
to this charming dump.

She works here.


Well, it was nice meeting
you. I'll let y'all

enjoy your night.
Good seeing you.

Hey, if you're
here by yourself,

join us.
Oh, no.

No, I wouldn't
want to intrude.

We're probably
leaving soon, anyways.

What are you talking about?

You made me put on pants
and leave the house.

I'm at least getting a beer
out of this.


Sit. I'll grab us a round.

I guess I came here tonight
to avoid you,

and you had the same idea.

Kind of funny.


You can just put it
in the filing cabinet.
Oh, yeah.


Were all these cigarettes
taken from the kids?

Oh, no, those are Peg's.

She's got them
stashed everywhere.

Takes me back.

You were a smoker?
In college.

You know,
I was trying to look older.

Oh. Did it work?

Imagine the Gerber Baby
puffing on a Marlboro Light.

I'm glad I quit, though.

It's a disgusting habit.

Oh, it is.

I do miss it sometimes, though.


It was a long time ago.

How long?

Not that long.

I got a confession to make.

Me, too.


when I first started this job.


I was pretty stressed-out.

You wouldn't have known it.

Thank you.

When was your last one?



I was having a hard time
with the kids.

You know,
there's lighters in here, too.

I think she's asleep.

What if she's dead?

She's not dead.

She looks dead.

I'm not dead.

22 minutes.
This has to be a record.

♪ Are you ready for love?

Before this goes
any further,

there's something
I got to tell you.

This is going further? Sweet.
Listen to me.

I wasn't completely honest
about my age.

You weren't?

I'm actually... 29.

No kidding.


Well, then, I guess there's
something I should tell you.

I'm totally fine with that.


This is wrong, right?

You mean how much
we're enjoying it?

Well, that's the nice thing
about being Christian.

We can always ask
for forgiveness.

You have to really mean it.
Trust me, when I wake up

with this taste in my mouth,
I'll mean it.

I guess it reminds
me of being young.


You remember
your first cigarette?

Eighth grade.

I snuck it out of
my mom's purse.

Ugh, menthol.



Freshman year of college,

trying to impress
Melissa Coolidge at a party.

Man, I threw up so much.
Oh, no.

In my defense,

it was
an impressive amount.

Anyway, his name is Billy,

and he's in sixth grade,
so you're gonna be seeing him

in three or four or five years.

You met him at my house
when we were playing poker.

The big kid. I love that kid.

Good. Remember that
when he's failing homeroom.

Oh, don't worry about grades.

He's gonna be a linebacker.

Where you been hiding
this one, George?

Haven't been hiding her.

Well, not that easy to hide.

I'll get us another round.

Tell her how I make more money
than you.

Think I'm gonna head out.

Please don't.

I need to.

You stay. I'll go.

No. You're having fun.

Are you mad at me?

Peg, how's it going?

Last time I checked,
they were all alive.

Where's Sheldon?


Sheldon? Where are you?


That night began
my winning streak at sardines.

Every lock-in,
every birthday party,

someone suggested we play,

and I won every time.


I'm the king of sardines.
