Selective mutism[ edit ] Until the season six finale, Raj's principal characteristic was his inability to speak to or around non-related women, a medical condition known as selective mutism. In the show this was alluded to by Dr. Beverly HofstadterLeonard's mother. Until the end of the sixth season, Raj remained silent when Penny was present. Penny occasionally taunted him about this, saying such things as "Yo, Raj, talk to me". Raj sometimes whispered what he wanted to say to Howard or Leonard, who then repeated his words or responded to his question out loud.
However, Howard sometimes used the situation to amuse himself—for example, when he "confessed" on Raj's behalf that Raj had stalked Penny with binoculars, or when Sheldon called Penny over to their table to silence Raj; Howard then refused to act as a mouthpiece and told Raj, "No no no, he won; Suck it up.
Raj turns to Leonard facing away from Penny and responds, "Oh, sure, cut the foreigner in half. There's a billion more where he came from.

In one episode, Raj tries to avoid returning to India for his cousin's wedding, as Raj's parents have arranged a date for him. Raj's sister Priya has a one-night stand with Leonard in Season 4.
