  2. That would be massively disappointing, but I just don't believe it's going to happen. There are two lines that refer to the kiss as a make-out...how bizarre would it be if all we saw was two seconds of them pulling away? They gave us a tiny taste in the promo but they're saving the good stuff for Thursday. Making it a more intense, passionate kiss was a calculated decision that is significant to this story arc, and the scene will make no sense if it's cut down to a few seconds. Plus, I believe the girls said that the kiss was just one take.

  4. Ok this is SO not the same thing as the hug earlier in the season. That wasn't part of the plot. this make-out IS part of the plot. I don't see it getting cut ESPECIALLY since its in the promo Confused how anybody could think its getting cut when its part of the CBS promo. And even it its cut-short (which is different than being cut) I kinda would expect this. And they probably filmed it previously to get more close-ups, but filmed it live to get the audience reaction (which from our girls was HUGE). Relax everybody, on this one, I think you're worrying way too soon and over something not needed. All will be ok...Santa Molaro says so!!!

  5. I think the birthday thing is classic writers nonsense of "Oh, we have an idea because someone in our writers room never told us their birthday so we will shove it in an episode even if it makes no sense!". While I think the Taurus line can be explained away easily, there's no way I can buy that in ten+ years Leonard never found out what Sheldon's birthdate was, that Mary never said anything to them, that... you know, he has a *twin* sister, so it doesn't take much to find out even if Sheldon himself didn't want to say, or that Amy didn't know given his birthday had to be on his Emergency Contact form. While it might be funny amongst co-workers, I seriously doubt that writer's closest friends or significant other(s) don't know. I could have bought a scenario where H/R/B never knew, but not one where L/P/A don't.

  7. Desdemona, you are right. I've been re-watching the older episodes, and one of my favorite lines was in S6 when Amy told Penny that if Sheldon ever proposed to her during sex, her ovaries would latch on to him and never let go. So she wants both, the intimacy and the permanent commitment. I think she knows she has the commitment. Sheldon has said as much; that he wants her wherever he goes. However, when she mentioned having children on Mars, even though Sheldon warmed to the idea, it was after chastizing her for not wanting to keep it in her pants. People tend to project their own personalities, thought, and feelings on others. We assume someone will react to a situation the way we would and become disappointed when what we expected to happen doesn't. The more I think about it, I think that is what is going on here. I agree Amy is finding it harder to restrain herself. She is on fire and cannot understand why Sheldon isn't as well and assumes he doesn't desire her. Rather than express her feelings in a way that Sheldon can understand, she is lashing out about flowers, mushroom logs, the Flash, etc. Her frustration is really not about these things. She is in heat, and it is because of him and only for him. I don't think Sheldon understands, yet, the effect he is having on Amy. Because he has been able to surpress/control his urges, he thinks she should be able to just turn it off. He doesn't get the connection between attraction, emotion, and sex and that her hormones are in overdrive. Although she loves Sheldon, Amy is possibly evaluating if she can continue in a relationship where sex may never happen. On the other hand, Sheldon has agreed to a sleepover and is now engaging in "foreplay". He is going further physically than he ever has before and doesn't understand why she is angry, especially when he assured her the Flash was only "one" of the things he was thinking of and tried to continue with the make out. He knows he is ready to permanently commit to Amy in marriage, which means he has accepted that sex will be on the table. Regarding the proposal, I can see Sheldon going to Amy's apartment or lab after stewing for a few days. She tells him that she doesn't think he wants her, and he says, "Well, I can assure you otherwise". He whips out the ring and continues, "I was getting prepared to give you this, but you stormed out before I had a chance...." You know, because that would be so Sheldon..... And by telling her it was his plan all along to propose eliminates the belief that he was pushed into it. Of course that is just one of the many scenarios I've concocted in my imagination.

  8. See, I think this is where they got the footage for the promo video. Though, I don't know why they wouldn't just use the actual make-out... But those 3-second kisses had to have been filmed/photographed for promotional purposes only. If that's not the case...the pitchforks and tables will fly on May 7...for Hell hath no fury like a Shamy shipper scorned (especially going into a hiatus!).

  9. I was watching The Scavenger Vortex. I love the pairing of Amy and Howard, which is the most fun team in Koothrappali's scavenger hunt, which lead me to rewatch The Lunar Excitation. Ironically, it was Wolowitz who had the most interesting lines while pestering Sheldon to meet Amy: Howard: Okay, what if I were to tell you tomorrow at 4:30, you could meet a woman who has been scientifically chosen to be your perfect mate? Howard: Why don't you start with a cup of coffee and you can pon farr Amy Farrah Fowler later? I'm holding my breath on the pon farring... that "later" has taken the word "later" to extremes.

  13. I love the way TPTB managed Howard and Leonard proposals,(specially Leonard)! Bernie and Penny didn´t expect "the ring stuff" at all, and it was wonderful! I am quite sure the writers have a milestone hidden in ark about SHAMY in that moment, as all the SHAMY big moments are!! WE KNOW HE HAS THE RING!!!!

  14. First of all, they only showed us 2 minutes and 5 seconds of those 4 minutes. And second, what crap?? All the writers did was ONCE AGAIN, let everyone know that "romantic Shenny" will NEVER happen!! Why? Because TPTB have told us how they (the writers) and Sheldon & Penny themselves see each other....AS SIBLINGS!! I seriously don't see why some Shamy's get so upset whenever they have scenes together. You guys are starting to sound as bad with your bitching about it as the Shenny's themselves are when they bitch about Sheldon & Amy scenes. And I'm now starting to see what they're talking about when you guys DO bitch about it! Sheldon loves AMY! Sheldon got a ring for AMY! Sheldon wants to spend the rest of his life with AMY! So please STOP WORRYING about him having scenes with Penny. I'm a Major Shamy fan but I'm a "platonic" Shenny also. I like them in scenes together. They're funny! They even act like my brother and I do (which at times can be down right scary accurate....[emoji14])

  15. From what I've seen described by those who attended the taping, I think the tag is pretty clear that for Amy, this isn't a pressure tactic nor is it about sex. The way it was reported, Amy is very clearly just defeated and sad. But at the same time, she isn't getting mad at Sheldon or telling him off, or even suggesting that she's leaving him. She comes across as just sad, confused and lost and needing time away to sort out what she needs or wants to say on her own. Isn't that basically what Sheldon did so unelegantly last year? Amy is going the extra mile in contrast though to reassure him that she loves him and asking for his understanding. So given the context and how she goes about it, I don't think the casual viewer will be blaming Amy. I think it will play as incredibly sad for both of them to be honest. There will always be some pockets of viewers who will choose to take sides but overall I think the audience will just be shocked and sad but also incredibly excited to see how things play out next season.

  17. Like kerry said already, it would really make no sense for them to cut out the kiss. What Michy was referring to was, they filmed the whole scene, starting with the kiss, and then when they did the second take, they started it just after the kiss had been broken. They're not going to start the episode without showing the kiss at all though, since it was shown in the promo on tv, and also because I really don't think they would do that to us. So my guess is, they're going to use the take we all got to see at the taping. The only other option would be that they refilmed it afterwards, but I don't see why they would. In any case, we'll be getting a kiss, and I'm pretty sure they'll use the footage we saw. Thursday cannot come fast enough!

  18. I found this forum with the intent of being spoiled. I don't regret a single minute of it! I was unspoilt for 6 years.... I missed out on all the wonderful and colourful discussions on here, promos, photos and such. There's no going back! and... I have read such wonderful stories as well!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. Well guys, from now on I'm going unspoiled. I don't want any new information for season 9, and I'll try to go through the whole next season completely unspoiled (hard thing for me, I'm a very curious person). See you around!

  21. I guess I was just getting worried because I remembered Michy saying that they shot it once as a whole scene without the kiss (or something along those lines) and I remember that was sort of what happened in Expedition this season with the hug before Sheldon and Raj went down into the tunnels, since they usually go for take 2 (or 3) in the final edit. I do 100% agree it doesn't make sense to cut it, I'm just getting restless about it, since the promo seems to be different. Is it Thursday yet?!

  22. The word "foreplay" really made me fangirling, because the fought, that he knows what foreplay means, gave me goosepimples, oh boy! I liked that episode too, it was hilarious! Sex is definitely in his mind, we have seen it several times, especially in the "Prom Equivalency", when her appearance affected him so much, that he ran away, because she looked so pretty. And you are right, he is starting to prepare himself for taking the next step to get more intimate with Amy, otherwise he wouldn´t make out with her. And this make out, at least on the photos, looked hot, he even had his hand on her thigh. Who knows what would have happened, if they hadn´t stopped. Maybe their hands would have gone further.... Oh, Amy you were so close! He even wanted to continue their make out. I like how you envision Sheldon would propose to Amy, I really hope he asks her soon. And you are right, it would wipe her bad thoughts away, once he proposes to her.

  23. I don't know what has happened to Leonard, but I've decided he is now either a Pod Person/Alien, or a robot made by Sheldon using Tinker Toys and latex, or his evil brother kidnapped him and replaced him. And here is why: After 8 years of being friends with Sheldon, Leonard SHOULD know not to let Sheldon know where he got the ring for Penny. This is a no brainer (to me at least), Sheldon can in no way keep a secret especially with an in your face secret like a diamond. THEN Leonard lies to Pennys' face, about where he got the ring (and again Sheldon comes to the rescue(?). Which shows that Leonard has also deceived Penny when he put the "used" ring into a new box. Is this the same Leonard that used to worship the gum under Pennys' shoe (so to speak)? I think not! I hope this type of behavior is a 1 episode deal, if it's not, then I want to know where the real Leonard went !!! Thanks for listening to me prattle.

  24. What if Leonard's check engine light comes on as they travel further... OMG, not the SAAB, no please don't kill the SAAB. Ok, so it's a sure thing, the SAAB gets sacrificed so they don't make it to Vegas. Just like Quicksilver or Agent Coulson in the Avengers movies. To give it some weight.

  25. It started with the dialogue. Like maybe they just felt like one take for the kiss was enough. Even though we obviously wanted more.

  32. I'm excited that after Thursday, there will be no distinction between the spoiled and the unspoiled among us. We can all just be pals and not worry about spoiling or being spoiled. We can all be eager together for the hiatus to come to an end.

  33. The dynamic of Leonard and Sheldon with their mothers has always been one of my favorites of the series. For me, the fact that they're both like the other one's mother makes sense of their relationship with each other. They don't want to be like their own mothers, but each can understand this other person who is like her. I think it makes them alternately more tolerant and more exasperated with each other. In particular, some of my favorite dialog on the series is the back-and-forth between Sheldon and his mother about religion. When I started watching the show, it was the exchange between Sheldon and Mary about staying in Texas to teach evolution to creationists that first got me hooked. This episode's lion chow dialog was a perfect example of their banter; I enjoyed it immensely. I also loved seeing Sheldon and Leonard trying to get their mothers to behave, like teenagers who are horrified by the way their parents act. Still, as annoyed as they were with their mothers, they each wanted her approval--just like children do. Even though we become adults, in some ways we'll always be children when we're around our parents.

  39. I'm not entirely confident Sheldon's birthday is in February. I don't think the show plays out in real time for us unless otherwise stated with a holiday episode. There could be months between one episode and the next on their timeline, or there'd never be any episodes set between late May and September. In the episode they threw the surprise party for Leonard's birthday, Penny says at the Cheesecake Factory that Sheldon is a "typical Taurus". You don't need to know someone's exact birthday to know their star sign, so if there is any accuracy to that episode that would put Sheldon's birthday somewhere between April 20 and May 20.

  40. It is really heartbreaking indeed. I mean, she is in love for the first time with her first boyfriend and of course she wants to spend every single minute with him, cuddling, kissing and to get as intimate as possible with him. She wants to experience this kind of corporal amalgation with her partner. So I think you are right, that when she offered a sleepover, she was expecting some kind of intimacy, but then nothing more happened, so she was kind of dissapointed, because deep insight of her she was hoping for more. So it´s logical, that the more time they spent together, the more she WANTS him and she is starting to realize that it is becoming harder to restrain those feelings. So when they were making out and he started to talk about the Flash, she was disappointed again. She might have thought something like: "Hey, doesn´t he want me as much as I do? I thought this moment was as important for him as for me!" So, you are right she is re-evaluating their relationship. But I´m sure they can solve their problem, but they really have to talk about their feelings.

  41. I can't believe the season is almost over... Although I didn't really like the last few episodes (except for this weeks episode), I am looking forward to the final one next week. Fingers crossed that it will be an epic (Shamy) episode, and in a good way! See you all in a few days :D

  43. I think that the whole "double standard theory" is just that, a theory. I haven't seen any excessive condemnation for Penny's sexual history. I have always taken it as the writers building on the premise that in the past Penny has always been attracted to men for superficial reasons and she was more interested in the immediate and short term gratification then in a more in depth and longterm relationship. I just took it for granted that they were using it as a means to show how she is maturing and growing.

  44. Okay, first of all. Nowhere in Canon is or has it been said Penny has sex with every guy she meets or is proud of it. Just because other characters assume she does like (Sheldon) doesn't make it true. I disagree with Rick though. I think Penny's reaction was that Sheldon was so far off on the number. Just because Sheldon is really judgmental doesn't make it right. This get's back to the debates between Shenny and Lenny's. Shenny's think Leonard is such a horrible person but in reality Sheldon is way worse of a human being then Leonard. No way has Penny been with over 100 men. Sheldon is just an Ass.

As a huge L/P fan this episode almost made me tear up a bit. It was done amazingly well and I loved the way they brought the two back together after Leonard started to realize how much he over thought things

  47. A Fantastic Episode. One of the best of the series. Leonard/Penny FTW. I was really satisfied. Basically the dream sequence addressed what some people who don't like Leonard/Penny think and at the end Leonard still wants to date Penny and to be with Penny. So the problems they have, they both do realize them. So yeah they have things to work on and it won't be all great overnight but they want to be together. Really do like how it was done. A good step forward. No, A GREAT STEP FORWARD.
