    Short summary for now. Only have a phone which isn't convenient for typing much. The Collaboration Fluctuation Sheldon and Amy begin to collaborate on a scientific project when Sheldon realizes something she's been working on could have implications with regard to a challenging issue in quantum mechanics. They try to work out some ground rules between them for this new kind of interaction and find that being snarky with one another helps their cognitive thought processes. Raj and Penny get along so well doing various "girly" activities together that Leonard feels left out. He spends some time with Howard and Bernadette before bringing it up to Raj and Penny.

    There were two stories in this episode, so instead of going in order, I'm going to summarize the two separately. Each paragraph represents a scene. "The Collaboration Fluctuation" Director: Mark Cendrowski Story by: Chuck Lorre, Tara Hernandez, and Giuseppe Graziano Teleplay by: Steven Molaro, Steve Holland, and Dave Goetsch Penny and Raj are doing yoga in the living room of 4A. Penny forgot about her breakfast plans with Leonard. Raj says it's his fault because he asked her to do yoga with him. Raj asks if Leonard will take Cinnamon for a walk. Leonard agrees, sarcastically saying that Raj is living with them, so why not do him more favors? Leonard picks up the dog and Penny says 'bye sweetie'. Leonard says goodbye, and she says oh yeah, goodbye to him too. He's back with the dog in mere seconds with a wet spot on his pants. Obviously Cinnamon didn't make it outside to go. In the kitchen, Raj and Penny gossip/discuss the people she works with. Leonard doesn't recognize any of the names of the people they talk about. On the couch, Penny and Raj are wearing matching facial moisturizing masks. Leonard suggests playing a board game, but Raj and Penny want to go shopping. Leonard goes with them, and he looks bored and cranky throughout a music montage of Raj and Penny happily shopping for makeup, shoes, and clothes, including matching floral shirts. The song playing is "Happy Together" by the Turtles. In the minivan with Howard, Bernadette, and Halley's car seat, Leonard is accompanying them on a trip to Target, seeming happy to be included in something. At Target, Bernadette asks if Leonard's bothered by Raj and Penny spending time together in the sense that he's another man. Leonard says he might've been, but then he saw them in those matching shirts. He just feels left out of all their girly activities. Besides, Raj was his friend first. Back at 4A, Raj is teaching Penny how to savor a good wine. They ask Leonard a question, and then realize he's not there and wonder when he left. Penny thinks that was rude of him (Leonard). In the minivan again, Bernadette urges Leonard to talk to Penny and Raj about his feelings. At 4A, he explains to Penny and Raj, who interrupt him repeatedly. He's annoyed that they're leaving him out of his own explanation of how he has been feeling left out. They agree to go do something that Leonard wants to do to try to make it up to him. He chooses to browse for books at a book store. This time Penny is the one who looks bored as Leonard and Raj happily shop for books. ----- In Amy's car, Sheldon tells her about the project with the guys. To obey confidentiality requirements, he beeps the horn for the 'redacted' parts. Amy offers to tell him about her work. Apparently small muscle movements begin before a person becomes consciously aware of their own decision to move. She's working to measure/understand that super short instant. At the cafeteria with the guys, Sheldon tells them about Amy's work and that he thinks it might be relevant to an important issue in quantum mechanics. Back at 4B, Sheldon and Amy discuss her work and its relevance to physics. They mention the Copenhagen interpretation and Amy wonders if they can pinpoint the exact moment that the wave function collapses. She is concerned about them working together in an academic context. They decide to make ground rules. Sheldon suggests the first one: no one should use their sexuality to get their way. Amy is perplexed. Sheldon demonstrates by doing an exaggerated hip-wiggling walk across the room towards their bedroom. Sheldon reads some rules out of his notebook. He wants final say about physics, and she can have the same for neuroscience, unless he disagrees with her. He wants to be first on anything they publish and first to speak at awards, etc. Amy is having none of that. She swipes the notebook and tosses it out their open kitchen window. The first ground rule, she says, is that she makes the rules. Amy has a list of rules. They're a team, not competing with one another. No insults, etc. A montage follows, also to the song "Happy Together." They fill up 5 or so whiteboards with calculations. When they are done, they look it over and come to an agreement: it's complete garbage. Annoyed by the poor results, they try to figure it out. Sheldon complains about Amy's breathing and insists she blow her nose. She does so over and over, loudly right up in his face. Then he realizes the breathing sounds were actually just him anyway. Amy says she knew it was a bad idea to work together. Sheldon notices a problem on the board and fixes it. It should make a big difference. They get back to fighting. Then Amy notices something. He says it's her first good idea of the day, and suggests that their arguing might be helping. Amy says fight/flight hormones might be improving their cognitive processes. Faced with scientific progress vs. risking their personal relationship, Sheldon votes science. Amy calls him a bonehead and more ideas for their work flow from Sheldon. Tag: Amy reads the revised rules. They are a team, but it is a competition. There are such things as stupid questions. And it's okay to point out how stupid right to the person's stupid face. That one's Sheldon's favorite. The final rule is a list of allowed insult categories, including fields of study, educational background and mothers. Sheldon tries it out, something about Amy's mother and sailors.

    Regarding Sheldon's butt-swaying walk, I had to think about it after I watched it too, and I believe he was doing an impression of Amy as opposed to trying to be sexy himself. All of Sheldon's rule suggestions were for his own benefit, to the point where she literally chucked his list out the window. I don't think this one was some magnanimous attempt to protect Amy from his sexiness. It's way more likely that he didn't want her to have the upper hand. It's a funny scene and a pretty big admission from Sheldon that is kind of buried in the humor of the moment so you don't realize it right away. I don't remember a big reaction from Amy. I think she just made a mild wtf face and the scene ended.

    I only have one thing to say about this plot, and that is: This has literally been my #1 wish for YEARS! I have been desperately tweeting articles to Bill for ages hoping that he would get the hint! LOL! And this is EXACTLY the topic I had in mind!!!! You have no idea how much I've been spazzing all morning and I can't get anything done for the excitement. I can die and go to heaven now, the show can get cancelled, the apocalypse may come (although, if it could wait until I see how Game of Thrones ends, it would be much appreciated) and I couldn't care less. *runs around the room flailing like a maniac*

    THANKS, RJ! I HOPE YOU HAD FUN! SHAMY WORKING TOGETHER EEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NEVER MIND PROPOSALS AND BABIES, THIS - THIS - IS WHAT I WAS WAITING FOR! * AW. FUCK. YEAH. AND SNARK HELPS THEIR COGNITIVE PROCESSES?!?! Squee gun? Squee gun? Where my squee gun at? oh, THERE you are. I know the last few nice-enough-but-meh episodes had you allllll excited. I know you'd had your heart set on that holiday in the Caribbean. But sorry, pal. It's all hands on deck, I'm afraid. *(obviously no offence meant to anyone who wanted proposals and babies)

    What youre gonna see in tonight's episode is Beverly (the expert in her field) outlining two problems for two couples- Sheldon's old room being a surrogate "escape hatch" for Shamy, and the introduction of another roommate into Lenny's life and the possible reason for it (other than helping a friend). The interesting thing I found in watching the taping of thos is how each couple handled Beverly's revelations. Amy initially told Sheldon to ignore Beverly, but later she and Sheldon discuss the feelings behind it. And even prior to Beverly's skype session Amy has a sit down with Sheldon to discuss their feelings about the 4A issue. What you dont really see is Lenny doing that. Penny is immediately dismissive of Beverlys comment as was Leonard, but then Leonard second guesses it and gets concerned. Penny kind of throws Leonard under the bus and treats issues related to Raj moving in as Leonard's problem. They dont have a real discussion and in the end Leonard dismisses his own concerns as Beverly planting doubt in his head. The issue of communication between Lenny was even mocked by Sheldon in last weeks episode. Its pretty bad when Sheldon gets it and Lenny doesnt. The latest TR continues to bring this issue front and center. Lenny will probably be the focus of the finale IMO, and unfortunately in a likely cliffhanger icky episode. Fingers crossed that Im wrong...

    I am glad that Sheldon chose science, and I would hope that Amy would too. I mean, she sort of already has, yes? Didn't she need to be lured back into continuing cohabitation #ForScience? Also, I don't see it as one over the other. Their love of science is so fundamental to who they are. It's such a huge part of what drew them to each other, and it's such a big part of their relationship already. I can't really root for people in a relationship unless they make sense for me as individuals. ShAmy's personhood and their individuality, for me, is a massive part of why I enjoy them together. And science and their arrogance and their intellectual snobbery are such huge, huge parts of that. I don't know, I guess I would see a 'me or science?' ultimatum as almost a 'me or our baby?'. Unthinkable. and the ShAmy already have a baby! And Sheldon is already trying to win it away from Mommy! Sigh. Oh this season.

    Amy definitely stands up for herself throughout this episode, and it's great! I remember when Mary told Amy that she just needed to put some zing on it. Well, when Amy said that the first rule is that she makes the rules, there was a lot of zing in the delivery of that line. In fact, they had to reshoot that scene because the audience went 'ooh' instead of laughing, which we aren't supposed to do. Jim gave the audience a funny little mock look of reprimand for our loud 'ooh'.

    "what's weird is that Penny almost got a science fact right." Oh Amy, your sass (and using it to cheer him up) brightened up that clip for me. Leonard is really getting on my nerves with those jokes. Also...I know we're lucky to know anything from the latest taping but I keep checking back here for more details, any details! In regards to the latest taping *rolls up sleeves* I challenge anyone who tries to say those two are no longer the quirky, unique couple they are.Or that they are no longer a relationship of the mind. This possible breakthrough from both may give us so many things we've been asking for: More Amy in her lab The return of Sheldon and Amy as intellectual sparring partners Those two getting randy from each other's brain. Quirky Amy I'm loving everything about this. Still want more details though, (I'm stuck here at school till 9 so please! Give me something)

    I'm working on a more detailed report right now, and I'll follow it up with a post of my opinions on how things played out. Thanks to everyone for the well-wishes, and I appreciate the Lenny fans who recognize I'm not at fault for reporting story info that you don't like. Keep that in mind for the longer report because you won't like that either. The only positive thing I can say for Lenny is that I don't think Raj was in any way presented as a romantic threat.

    Yes! I've been saying for years that it would be a total waste for this show not to play on the Curie symbolism with Shamy since they're literally the only couple on the show that can do that. Howard and Bernie could only feasibly work together if they build biological weapons (LOL). But physics and neuroscience these days are a total power couple in academia! Furthermore, they could get Howard involved later on too if they want to play around with neuromorphic circuits. (I need to stop before I get carried away). Regarding authorship... You can have joint first authors when both authors have contributed equally. It's usually a little asterisk by the names that is footnoted as "these authors contributed equally to this work". What would be good to see for a change is a plot where there's finally a move on from the usual "Sheldon wants all the credit" stuff.

    I'm not reading the report because I don't want to know all the details, but what I'm gathering from the comments sounds pretty exciting! I also was under the impression he was imitating/exaggerating what Amy (unconsciously) does that he finds attractive, but it might be that he's just trying to get his way ala Brain Bowl too. To be honest, I don't mind whichever way this plays out and, again, I don't really care how often they have sex or not. I don't think sex is the only form of intimacy they can enjoy, and they can still find each other attractive and engage in other 'activities' when they feel a bit randy, to quote Sheldon If they got rid of the stupid "deadline" though, it would be much better because that makes less and less sense with each of these episodes. I'm really excited that it sounds like they're working hard at calculations together! Oh, man! Can this get any better? Also, if they managed to get Gillian Anderson on the show to play a scientist I might just spontaneously combust for real. I was just tweeting about her and AFF yesterday in my International Women's day tweet. Two of my favorite fictional ladies ever.

    I really hope it's an arc that lasts at least until the end of the season. Or one of those plots that pop up here and there across next season. There's a lot that can be mined here and, if they are to be realistic, it's not the kind of stuff you work on for a week and then drop it. In other news, I was digging through my wishful thinking list of articles where I dreamt of a Shamy joint project and I wonder if the plot has anything to do with this: https://phys.org/news/2015-08-neural-qubits-quantum-cognition-based.html

    The final TR is out: This is everything I wished the Shamy story would be. OMG I can't wait for the follow up episodes cause it seems like something more ongoing and the final rules feel like the perfect setup to get more of everybody's favourite Shamy scientific snarky banter. LOL

    This sounds amazing!! I love it!! As already said, Shamy doing a science project together has probably been on everyone's wishlist so hooray for that. Even more so that it seems to be something big and not just one of their hobby experiments. I feared Sheldon would still be tied up in the military project plot that would leave him no time for anything else so I'm happy with the writers rather letting Shamy be the science power couple we all want them to be!!! <3 I also love how being snarky is apparently incorporated into this - I hope it will lead like them having a go at each other much like in the 10x04 tag. And I love that they seem to work out a set of rules for this snark all in the name of furthering science because of course they do! It's brilliant! Can't wait to see this one! #ForScience!

    Cool! I really like the idea of them working together on a major project! Who knows all the science talk on this project and the intellectual sparring they have (and love having with each other lol) might get them all hot and bothered and lead to something 'spontaneous'?! Looking forward to and seeing where they go with this! Thanks @RJ1013, I hope you had a fantastic time!

    I think given the choice between science and X, Sheldon will always knee-jerk respond science. I don't think he gave it any real thought, though, and he didn't even get to finish what he was saying before Amy called him a bonehead. If he had thought about it, I think he would've said they could manage both. Science is kind of their thing, after all. @April might also be right that he said it to make her mad and keep the creative ideas flowing because it was right after they realized the connection between their arguing and scientific breakthrough.

    It's 'Science Amy', when she is in that 'mode' it doesn't surprise me at all about what happened to the notebook lol! I just hope they have fun working together and they have a major breakthrough at the end. The hips thing sounds hilarious! Sheldon imitating what she does when she wants something. Perhaps a hint it has worked in the past lol for Sheldon to recognize it's effect? Begs the question why isn't she using it more for other things she might want? lol. Anyway sounds like a fun episode and definitely a multi-episode storyline!

    I just want Raj out of there, I would have preferred they have Randall or Penny's sister there a couple weeks than having Raj. Why after having to live with Sheldon so long, do they now have to take in Raj, are the running a bed and breakfast now. Going to work must also be fun now, Leonard, Sheldon, Amy and of course Raj can ride in the same car, think of how much gas money that will save Raj. Im starting to miss Leonard and Penny's single days when they would hang out alone in Penny's apartment, instead of now. They use to do cute things, like doing each other's nails while talking, now they can't even enjoy dancing around in their underwear any more, with Raj there.

    Love the sound of this episode! Funny that we nailed that Sheldon would have wanted his name to go first in papers and Amy being the usual badass and not willing to concede it. I just hope that the notebook she tossed out of the window was not the 3.000 $ Alienware she bought him, LOL! I love that they are physically working together on the board making calculation, I had imagined a less close collaboration and how the bantering helps them progressing their work. Most of it, I love the We are a team but this is a competition really my motto for Shamy for now on...they are scientists to the core, that's for sure!

Looking foward to seeing with much curiosity all shamy scenes, especially that dialogue of them by the end of their day on bed. Their heartfelft talks on bedroom are one of my favourite things this season. Well, this season is indeed one of my favourites shamy concerned! <3 Have a wonderful day, shamy fellows

    I'm very sad. Usually, eventually I can sort of find a silver lining. Take another look and see something for me as someone who adores Penny & Leonard; Leonard & Penny; Lenny. Not right now. We have a short blurb of a taping report (so nicely provided), but there does not seem that there is anything there for me. Again Raj inserts himself into a relationship. Again Leonard and Penny have a third wheel in their marriage. Again Sheldon and Amy appear to have a lovely storyline where they are spending time alone together and enjoying each other's company. Across the hall, where things matter the most to me? Seemingly more torment. Nice that Raj is having an enjoyable time.....sigh.

    New sneak peek for tomorrow episode is up! It has PALS in it, it's the scene on the stairwell where Sheldon displays empathy towards Raj and Leonard and Penny can't believe to their ears! The jokes Leonard made about medications are not so funny, though, Sheldon and Amy seemed not very amused too...I love when Amy is on Sheldon's side when people mock him!

    What makes me hopeful about this is the idea of them working out rules and see what improves their collaborative work (turns out it's snarky banter! lol) so with the little information we have I feel this is starting out pretty good and chances of a "Sheldon wants all the credit" scenario seem pretty slim - not that Amy would put up with that nonsense anyway! What also makes me hopeful is that we've already seen how the writers can handle Shamy doing science and snarking at each other and it's always been such a delight. Be it their argument way back in Zazzy, the always beloved Herb Garden, their little experiments over the years or what we've seen this season with that added flavour of sexy talk and seduction attempts. This could be really fun! I hope it'll last for at least a few episodes. <3

    I have just had the opportunity now for posting about the snippet and I am even more happier for shamy relationship progress and also for Sheldon's growth and I believe I don't need to say why as I am saying this. And what 's wrong with you writers about drugg people or medication jokes? It is not funny and it is quite repetitive *sigh* Happy notes: *Sheldon's empathy. It made me feel so proud of our Shelley! *Amy ' s words to Sheldon, as she was supportive to her boyfriend and also she is always for the truth. It made me feel so proud of our Amy! *Shamy body language: their are always so synch for better and worse <3 And I must say that one of my shamy must happen itens list I most want to see soon is Amy kicking gang's a***e for they mock Sheldon in the most unfair moments. Geez! Shamy aganst the world team 1 _ world 0 And Game continues!

    Here's the problem, its not about fucking Raj, it just another week of Lenny conflict. Don't look at this as something isolated, look at the pattern. How many comments were about his getting in the middle of Lenny's relationship. @vonmar, you ask me what I saw happening, here's your answer. What other reason is there for putting Raj in 4A? Oh, I know, they don't have Sheldon to play off of them anymore. Remember those plots where Penny takes Sheldon's side? Or complains about Leonard to Sheldon, or gets mad at Leonard and runs off with Sheldon? The writers didnt have that anymore, so they had them with silly conflict, lie over TV shows, or Leonard, of all people, not trying. Now, they move Raj in, and the writers have that third person back. And, we continue to get Lenny conflict, while showing Shamy having cute plots. It's become obvious that the writers simply dont want to put the effort in to write anything for Lenny. And Jonny, not singling You out here, others have made similar comments. Your post was just a good lead in for my comments.

    Could you imagine if they are working together, Sheldon is getting so into the project and they are making what could be a big Quantum Mechanics breakthrough. Sheldon makes a comment like they are a modern day Pierre and Marie Curie making great scientific breakthrough as a couple without the added factor of it eventually killing them lol, Amy then says there is a difference they were married and then Sheldon pops the question there and then in the lab? Anyways this is a really interesting development and potential storyline. I assume Sheldon's done all the math and is now done with the guidance project (Leonard and Howard are building it) so he has some time to get back to his own work now and do this project with Amy. Oh I agree, she won't take any of that type of behaviour going on lol. Historically Sheldon has been a pain to work with at times, I don't think he will be on this project, well at least I hope not.

    I was also thinking, remember how Sheldon made Penny memorize a statement derogatory to Leonard's work when she wanted him to teach her 'some physics' in season 3. It would be funny if Leonard gave her hints during the episode to make Sheldon worry that maybe she was smarter than him. Picture Sheldon at his white board: I can't figure out what has me stuck in this problem. Leonard: Ask Penny Penny walks in: Ask me what Sheldon: Leonard seems to think you can fix my work (snorts and does creepy chuckle) Penny: You mean like how you put a 2 instead of a 3 over that squiggly thingy. Sheldon stares at board in shock: That's impossible, how could you know that. Penny: seems pretty obvious if you know what you're doing. Sheldon: I can't deal with this (then leaves) Penny smiles: Thanks Honey, (gives Leonard a kiss) Leonard smiling: I got your back.
