  1. Sheldon wasn't MIA at that point, he was just in the midst of a tantrum, which is not atypical behavior nor cause for concern. Penny has not been cruel to Amy, and she wasn't last night. She coddles her if anything.
  2. Stardust has, and you have agreed with her. You two are making bullshit accusations against her character, so yes, that bothers me. You call her self-absorbed which she has been patient and caring in dealing with Sheldon and Amy (two narcissistic characters you adore). Sheldon doesn't struggle with social interactions BTW, if we've learned anything it's that is proud and aware of the fact that he is an ass. Funny you had nothing to say regarding the actual content of any of our posts. And no, using a GIF in a failed attempt to look clever as you have in the past is not a real reply.
  3. Well then you'd be appalled at the way most would treat Amy, because all the harassing remarks and the way she nearly sexually assaulted her at the slumber party would have gotten her slapped with a big ol' restraining order. Penny has never acted like she is better than them, and Bernadette has the holier than thou attitude. A self-absorbed person would not have been 1/10 as patient and accepting with Sheldon/Amy as Penny has. She teases them for liking video games, so what? She also watches the things they like constantly, as evidenced in Proton, though I'm sure the gesture is not reciprocated. Sheldon insults all of them and sees them as nothing more than his servants, but I'm sure that doesn't bother you in the least. But it seems you and stardust are working overtime to blame Penny for Sheldon's shortcomings, perhaps because Leonard and Penny showed themselves stable and mature while Shamy showed themselves to be woefully childish, inconsiderate, and violent (the last two describe Amy). Thus, you blame Penny for Sheldon's negative qualities, though they have always been at the core of his character.
  4. There is no way Penny or anyone else would use Sheldon, he is simply not worth the aggravation no matter the benefit. To accuse Penny of using him is preposterous to the point of being funny.
  5. Penny is absolutely nothing like Sheldon, as evidenced by the fact that she is moving forward in her relationship while Sheldon is off sucking his thumb in the corner. Realizing her aspirations is hardly a sign she is becoming like Sheldon. She is still compassionate and understanding of others, and that was clear tonight when she understood that Sheldon needed to leave for a while. Sticking around wouldn't have done him any good, and she saw that.
  6. Well, he isn't 'smitten' with Amy and never has been despite the numerous ways she throws himself at him, so keep dreaming. Penny doesn't love anyone, huh? Not even Leonard, her fiancee? Or Amy, whom she was endlessly patient with (even kindly telling her to quit intruding on their date tonight)? That's bullshit. She wasn't using him or anybody, she has a relationship with Sheldon because she cares for him. She mothers him because he acts like a child and thus she is forced to treat him as one, same with Leonard. Your accusations are so baseless they are almost amusing. You are blaming Penny for characteristics that have always been at his core. Nothing about his behavior tonight was modeled after Penny, and his character mostly started going downhill in the recent seasons, likely because he is being pressured and coerced by a desperate woman who cannot accept the reality of who he is. She didn't tell him to leave, merely supported him in a decision he had already made. Your entire post describes Sheldon, or perhaps Amy to an extent. But not Penny by any stretch of the imagination.
  7. Your point? It's the same size and is holding roughly the same volume of liquid as Leonard's.
  8. I'm sorry, but after tonight's episode you're annoyed with Leonard and Penny? The two people who handled the situation like adults? They were great in this episode, and none of these awful changes in Sheldon can be pinned on Penny. She certainly never modeled any of the abysmal behavior he displayed tonight. Yes, they were so cruel to Amy in not letting her stick around for their date, handled it much worse than Amy did when Raj tagged along last season. I mean, Sheldon was so uncharacteristically having a tantrum, and they should have dropped everything to listen to her talk about it! If you want to be mad at anyone, be angry at Amy. She has stuck around knowing full-well how Sheldon and has not accepted him for it. She just hopes he'll magically change one day, watching her friends move forward with their lives while he stays the same. She's needed to wake-up for a very long time.
  9. Whatever he is, his "Too much change! Too much change!" tirade and lack of compassion towards Stuart made it impossible to feel the least bit bad for him. He's just a jerk if you ask me.
  10. Nope, I have known and loved a lot of people with special needs in my lifetime. But Sheldon doesn't have special needs, he's just a manchild.
  11. Good episode. I liked seeing Leonard stand up for him and Penny, that was great. I did not feel the least bit bad for Sheldon, especially when he was comparing his ordeal to Stuart's. Lenny looked insanely like parents tonight, Penny actually reminded me of my mom when she first dropped me off at college. Leonard was spot on in his Freaky Friday analogy. Still can't bring myself to feel bad for Amy. It is abundantly clear that he will not change and does not want to, she got what she asked for. Everyone else is moving on and building adult relationships while she's babysitting the manchild.
  12. That's significant how? Mom and Dad are introducing changes so he phones the nanny, no surprise there. The fact that this would upset him so greatly is indicative of their profound importance to him, a significance Amy does not seem to share.
  13. He's going straight back to Leonard and Penny, like it or not they play a far more significant role in his life than Amy does. Probably always will, to be brutally honest.
  14. Castle did the accidental marriage trope on their finale tonight. Just throwing it out there.
  15. This is genius. I'm really glad others share my sentiments about Sheldon staying exactly the same if not devolving. Shamy fans are always insisting that he has changed so much because of her so-called positive influence, but I don't see it.
  16. I think Penny has the smartest approach with Sheldon. She knows better than to engage, and would only waste her breath and look foolish by "standing up to Sheldon". It wouldn't change anything.
  17. Though I often find Amy desperate and pathetic, in the long run I'd choose hder. Her work experience and education are something she can always take with her, have to her name. Relationships can end at the drop of a hat, and then what the hell would you have to show for yourself? Penny's mention of her friends being the biggest passion in her life was one of the most depressing things ever said on the show. Do you think Bernadette has that same passion for their friendship? Sheldon? Hell no. You need to have something for yourself in order to be fulfilled. If Penny were to adopt the mindset that all she needs is Leonard, she'll wake up one day and realize she's empty, likely resorting to engaging in one of the vices Lionne mentioned above. I've seen it several times myself. Those marriages fail, if not in a formal divorce than in extreme emotional distance. There's no joy in being a Stepford/Trophy Wife.
  18. You're ignoring the fact that it is also Leonard's home. And rude? Really? It was a suggestion, and Sheldon is the king of rude. He could of easily told Sheldon to get out, it means nothing that he has been there longer. If the shoe were on the other foot he'd be 1000x worse.
  19. It's Sheldon and Leonard's home, so he has every right to suggest he move out. They both rent it, so it is equal parts theirs. It doesn't matter if Sheldon moved in first, especially after ten years. He certainly wouldn't be the first to leave because his roommate is moving forward with their life. The outrage over Leonard daring to merely suggest Sheldon move out is laughable. He should be expected to adapt to minor changes. With him AWOL and likely running home to mommy, I suggest Leonard and Penny take the liberty to move in. After all, it's Leonard's home too.
  20. Your response to any and all criticism of Shamy. Not good at refuting valid criticisms, so you just resort to insults.
  21. I too struggle to keep the spoilers to myself, as my parents, best friend, and four of my five siblings like it (my Sheldonesque younger brother thinks we're simpletons for finding it funny). But they don't love Leonard and Penny as much as I do, or get as invested in fiction.
  22. Sometimes I miss that element of surprise, but most of the time...nah. I'm content being spoiled.
  23. Nope, we don't hear of the watch incident again and he will not be getting an engagement ring since he ends up proposing (can't imagine why he would want one anyways). I seriously doubt they'll be wasting much time getting guest stars, Leonard and Penny will undoubtedly have a very small wedding. Penny is not the type of girl who has been dreaming of her wedding day since she was five. Sheldon is in his toddler phase and always will be. Even if he were to enter at adolescence, in his mid-30s, that means he wouldn't be a full-fledged adult until Amy was post-menopausal.
  24. No, he really doesn't. Yeah, he went in to see his nephew at her suggestion and she's conditioned him to give her an obligatory kiss, so what? He's like a child, when any of the characters get firm and parental he obeys. But all the evidence shows that she still plays a very marginal role in his mind and life. He's spoken of the future several times this season, and in none of them have involved Amy in the least. He wants to live with Leonard and Penny and have Leonard drive him to ComicCon when they are both eighty (even if Leonard were banned, so it's not a mere "friends forever" sort of deal). In short, he treats her like dirt and she accepts it, just like early Penny. I apologize to Tensor for misquoting his post, I did not mean to, but the comparison really does fit like a glove. It's even more fitting than the analogy of Lenny being seen to Sheldon as his parents (permanent) while Amy his part-time nanny (comes as needed when parents are busy, ultimately temporary). And thus far his vision has rung true because they enable him.
  25. That means Sheldon is Kurt or Mike, so that doesn't bode well for Amy. I'm grateful to Anita for being reasonable, I've offered opinions on S7 Spoilers that aren't "Sheldon is burning with intense desire for Amy" and gotten ridicule.
