  1. Why can't they just be friends?   In a way, it's what they have been all along with the exceptional, and obligatory physical contact.  No doubt they care for each other, but that is friendship.  Love, physicality, and intimacy shouldn't be forced.   If Sheldon wants to have her as more than that, and not just on paper, then he will prove it.   Otherwise, Amy is a great character in her own, and I would love to see her rocking out the neuroscience, perhaps even stirring a little competition with Sheldon.    Who knows what that would drive Sheldon to?   

    I like the quote, "Love is a friendship caught on fire."   If that is their endgame. 

     

    I say a Nobel for Amy!!!!  :yes:        .....and one for Sheldon later. :imsohappy:

    Agreed. I have a clear vision of Sheldon happily walking Amy down the aisle...to marry someone else. 


  2. Ironic that Sheldon is running away because he hates change and hes expected to change while he's away

    I don't buy it

    Yup, if he hasn't grown up by this point he never will. Come September he'll be the same child he always has been. My only hope is that Amy finally does some growing up and finds a real relationship. It is too much to ask of Sheldon and she should realize that.

  3. With Sheldon gone for a while, who knows, maybe Stuart can make a play for Amy.

    Or Zach, I know she write him off as being too dumb for her, but being with him couldn't be any less intellectually stimulating than playing nanny to her "sexy toddler". He is a very nice guy who would have a lot of love to give her. Plus, she could have the joy of knowing that she and Penny have been defiled by the same man. 

     

    Woo!

  4. I can't wait to see it!

     

    The thread is discussing Lisa Kudrow playing Penny's mom.  I don't remember her talking about what her mom looked like.  Did I miss an episode?

     

    There have been a couple of comments made about her in passing. Sheldon implied that she was overweight when Penny ate the last dumpling, and Penny mentioned that her mother smoked pot when she was pregnant with her. 


  5. Yes, but where is the fun in that? :) And doesn't she have to be a homespun? I'm not seeing Ms Kudrow as a farm girl... unless Wyatt charmed a NY actress and sophisticate and married her, then dragged her onto the farm Which is why Penny is driven to find the limelight and why she is so silent about her mum because Penny is trying to realise her mother's abandoned dreams of glory and her mum hates her for it. Hates her, I say!

    Phew, got carried away.

     

    LOL, I actually think Kudrow would be perfect for it. She is a great comedic actress and could probably get into that kind of character. Kaley says that is the only person she can picture as her mom, and I have adapted that same mindset. That said, I don't think Leonard and Penny will have a large, family wedding. I think they will spontaneously decide to get married sometime next season.

  6. What do you mean can't be a big boy?  Leonard still has no right to suggest that Sheldon move out of his own apartment.  If they're both on the lease, neither can kick the other out (unless it's in the roommate agreement, which Leonard willingly signed.)

    Leonard has no say in whether or not Sheldon chooses to move out.

     

    You're joking, right? He handled the situation like a two-year-old. Leonard made a basic suggestion, far milder than the ones Sheldon makes all the time, and gave him options for the sake of minimizing his temper tantrum. How horrible and inconsiderate of him. 

     

    If Amy sticks around out of desperation, as she likely will, she has a lot of these hissy fits to look forward to. She'll never have a child of her own, but will essentially get the same experience with Sheldon. 


  7. No, it would be like Rachel telling Monica she had to move out.

    It was Monica's apartment and Rachel came to live with her.  And in that case, I don't remember if Rachel was on the lease, but if she was, she's still the one who moved into what was Monica's apartment to begin with.

     

    In this case, Sheldon is in Monica's position in regard to whose apartment it was to begin with.

    It would be as if Rachel was the one who got married and then suggested that Monica be the one to move out.

    Who had it first, ten years ago, means absolutely nothing. Sheldon and Leonard have equal ownership of the apartment since they are renting it. Friends might be different as the only reason the girls were able to afford their apartment was because of Monica's grandmother (I think, never watched the show on a regular basis). Demonizing Leonard for making a simple suggestion because Sheldon can't bring himself to be a big boy about this is asinine.  


  8. Why should Lenny get the bigger apartment? It was actually Sheldon's apartment in the first place when Leonard moved in. So I think Lenny should be in the smaller apt.

    They are both renting it, so it doesn't matter who got there first as neither of them own it. Logically, it would make much more sense for LP to have the bigger apartment as they have more stuff. Sheldon keeping it because he has been there longer is not a reasonable argument.

  9. I disagree. He left Texas because he didn't fit in there. If they put up with his crap he'd still be there. He loves his Mom and Meemaw because he only seems them on rare occasions.

    They, or at least his mother, mostly put up with it whenever she sees Sheldon. And he isn't in Texas because of the scholastic opportunities provided to him elsewhere, and because he looks down in the people in that area for their beliefs.

  10. Sheldon will not be whipped into shape by his Meemaw, or at all. He'll be welcomed with open arms, as they have long accepted he will not change. In order got that to happen he would have to want to, and considering his arrogance and self-adoration that is unlikely.


  11. I'm glad others are finally realizing that Amy should move out of her relationship with Sheldon, as she has long outgrown it. I get that she loves him, in a more parental than romantic way, as having any sort of interaction will always be like interacting with a children. But love isn't always enough, I've seen a lot of great couples (which Shamy are not) break-up because they did not want the same things out of their life and relationship. It is extremely sad but it happens.

    It is laughable to think this will magically prompt him to grow up. It won't. If he hasn't molded into something of an adult by this point he never will.

    By that same token I can't bring myself to feel all that bad for Amy, as this should almost be expected. She should have figured out that he will never be suited for the kind of relationship she is looking for (he brought up marriage/family here, but she has expressed desire for that in the past). The scene with Leonard and Penny spoke to me in that it showed that all her friends are moving on with their lives while she is busy playing nanny to her so-called boyfriend, essentially stuck in the same place they were two years ago. I hate to say that she only has herself to blame for that. Penny has pointed out what a lousy boyfriend Sheldon is, she shouldn't be expected to drop everything and comfort Amy when she is proven correct.

  12. Oh good, people moaning about "vintage and or "moany squeely" Sheldon

    People need to face facts, Sheldon was never going to be ending up like that, the whole premise of the show is for the geeky guys to become more socially aware and I am enjoying every aspect of seeing Sheldon grow

    Yes somehow Sheldon wound ten times as childish and tone deaf as he was at the beginning. And much less intelligent.

  13. The other day I was actually wondering what they'd do if Kaley and Melissa had overlapping pregnancies. It happened to Alyson Hannigan and Colbie Smulders on HIMYM. 


  14. WeEEeEeLl... She has no idea what a physical relationsip entails, since she's never had sex either. Maybe once they get going she could feel overwhelmed or -and this would be no stretch for Amy- too awkward to go all the way.

    She is nearly forty and has known Sheldon for years. If she isn't ready know I can't imagine she ever will be.

  15. Amy being eager and actually ready are two different things though!

    Not really, especially when there has been no suggestion that she isn't ready, just dating someone who is not interested.


  16. The school girl uniform much more readily implies sex. Everyone and their mother knows that cliche. But Amy being eager for sex shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.


  17. Penny uses it all the time? I can't remember the last time she or anyone used that word on the show. And Leonard is not somehow powerless, he could have easily said no if he didn't want to sleep with the women he has hooked up with. He was not forced, clearly wanted to sleep with all these girls, and is responsible for his own sex life. So yes, you can easily compare them as they are both consenting adults.

    Zach was resolved in the span of a single episode, so I doubt they're anticipating any dramatic reveal. After that you predicted Penny eould reveal having had an abortion or giving up a kid.

    It's not an after-school special, remember that.


  18. You know I bet we find out some other big secret about Penny next season, even bigger than married to Zack.

    Doubtful. That really doesn't fit with the show at all, sounds more like something that would happen on a soap opera. As for the porn, it was mentioned that she went to an audition that turned out to be for porn and left.

    I don't like the not with money line either, but I didn't think of it as being another beyond dating. A lot of guys by into the notion that they pay for dated in return for the girls "putting out". It is very unfortunate. Chalk that one up to Chuck Lorre sexism.

    I do object to calling her a slut, however, when what we have seen paints the guys (including Leonard) be just as promiscuous on the show. It's asinine for Penny to mention doing the same thing and get called names. Luther was mentioned once and that it discussed more than Leonard sleeping with Mrs. Latham to ensure grant money. I get that it's somehow different to you because she's a woman, but seriously, too far.
