Quick Biography

Dr. Stephanie Barnett is a doctor and highly distinguished surgical resident at Fremont Memorial Hospital. Stephanie did her medical internship at Lawrence Memorial (fictional) in Galveston, Texas.

Stephanie made her debut in "The Lizard-Spock Expansion", where she is shown to be a romantic interest of Howard, who tries to seduce her by taking her to his lab and have her drive a Mars rover. But when he sticks the space car in a ditch, he calls his friends over for help and asks Leonard to drive Stephanie home. This proves to be lethal for Howard's chances with Stephanie, as she and Leonard end up making out in the car. She eventually confesses to Howard that she's interested in Leonard and not him.

Stephanie continues dating Leonard, which leads to several encounters between her and Sheldon. Although she seems to put up with Sheldon's obnoxiousness, she uses her cunning to keep him under control. For instance, she makes him believe he has to stop talking because of his inflamed larynx in "The Vartabedian Conundrum", which keeps Sheldon mute until the end of the episode. Still, Stephanie is the only girlfriend of Leonard's who Sheldon really liked.

By "The Vartabedian Conundrum", she has established herself in Leonard's apartment, which leads to Sheldon and Penny pointing out that he and Stephanie are living together. Leonard finds that his closet is full of her clothes and her jewelry box is on his dresser replacing his bat-signal. He realizes that the relationship is moving too quickly for him so he insists she re-locate to her own apartment.

Although it's not seen on camera, it is known that some time between "The Vartabedian Conundrum" and the following episode that she and Leonard broke up, but it is unknown who caused the break up and why. Leonard is seen texting her supposedly asking her to move out.

She is never mentioned by name again, indicating she didn't maintain a friendship with either Leonard or Sheldon after the break-up.

Stephanie is 30ish with red hair, curvy figure and bright smile. Her PB is Sara Rue.



Stephanie is smart, successful and driven, but she handles her professional life much better than her personal one. Once Leonard decides their relationship is moving too fast, he has trouble shaking her off, since when he tries to talk to her, she makes sexual advances on him and the two end up having sex. Stephanie seems to be insecure in her relationships and counters with being very aggressive sexually.

She's fun-loving, but because of her career, she barely has time for exercise, much less a social life and romance.
