Howard, who should have been shorter than Leonard, was also significantly taller than Bernadette.

By her own admission, Bernadette claimed to be 4ft 10 inches tall, which really makes her on the shortest height scale in the world. Her father once claimed she was only 4 feet tall, and the other characters occasionally joked about her short stature as well; although that didn't stop her from being afraid of her too.

Still, the boys can't claim to be as close to her as the girls, with Penny and Amy clearly being Bernadette's confidants. Within this trio, Bernadette was closest to Penny, which is why she became part of the group when Penny Howard got stuck with Bernadette. In the last episode of the series, Bernadette admitted that she wasn't Amy's best friend, but was convinced that Penny saw her that way.
