  1. I think right now considering everything the writers have given us so far, both interpretations are possible. There have been hints that could indicate that it's more than once, but it's not spelled out to the audience, so I guess we can't completely rule out the other option either. They could continue teasing us with this and just at some point it's revealed that they're doing it on regular basis like they did with the kissing or we'll have some sort of storyline for their second time. So right now I keep on believing they're doing it off screen/have done it more than once until I'm proved wrong
  2. I first quoted all of your posts, but my post ended up longer than life itself, so I'm just gonna leave these parts in. Oh you pointed out such good parts! I absolutely agree, I enjoyed seeing Leonard being amused by Sheldon too. And old "smartass" Amy with her "maybe you should get a new doctor" line was awesome. About the first bolted part, good catch! I totally missed that. Now it made me curious as well.. The second bolted part, exactly what I was thinking while watching the episode! There's been a change after the reconciliation. Sure Amy still sometimes rolls her eyes to him, but overall I feel like we've gotten less of that frustrated, frowning Amy. Like I said in my earlier post, based on these last couple of episodes, they seem to be in a very good place. Yup, drunk Sheldon stole the show for me too. Jim really nailed those, but that's a given. It's funny how they manage to make every drunk Sheldon moment a bit different. In this episode he was such an adorable, happy drunk! All those smiles and grins.. I absolutely loved it when Sheldon asked if anyone would like to see him beat up the bartender and then going nah she's a good kid. Also the part you mentioned about him waving and saying "hey there" on his way to the "bathroom".
  3. You know your ship is doing well when you're having a hard time making a wishlist.. We've already gotten so much: a hot make-out, coitus, both of them saying beautiful things to each other, casual touching, FWF, drunk Sheldon, flirty Amy, kinda flirty Sheldon, Amy enjoying the "girl talk". But let's see, I'm sure I can think of something, I'm a greedy shipper after all. A casual goodbye/hello kiss in front of the gang. I've said it before and I'll keep saying it till we get one. And I guess I wouldn't object a proper make out session which leads them slamming the bedroom door close behind them.. A sleepover. And I only need like little glimpses of it here and there. Them brushing teeth together, having breakfast together. Of course I'm not going to complain if we'll get more than just glimpses! Something work related for both of them These are all little things. I'd love to get the engagement and changed living arrangements this season, but with all the big stuff that has already happened, we might not get those. Although I wouldn't be too surprised if they'd get engaged in the next episode or something. All in all I just want them to be happy and on the same page with each other. More of this Shamy against the world than Shamy against each other. I've enjoyed them so much after their reconciliation and I hope that the writers will let them continue being happy. So even if we wouldn't get anything big for them for the rest of the season, I'll be fine with this quirky, happy, crazy in love Shamy.
  4. You've made some lovely posts and I don't know if I have anything new to add here. I'm loving this episode more and more. Sure it's not a game changing episode, at least not in a obvious way, but some have rightly pointed out that this could be once again a small step towards the new living arrangements. So fingers crossed! And how long have we begged for a lighthearted, fun episode with all of the group together and zero relationship drama? For me, that's exactly what the writers delivered here. I have absolutely no problem with the Shenny scenes, I think they just highlight even more that they are like siblings, annoy the heck out of each other, but despite of everything they love each other. I think their friendship is beautiful. Also I adore Shelnard so yay for that too! I can't even begin to tell you how much I love that we seem to get an episode where everyone is acting like they actually like each other. That's one thing I've missed so bad this season, to see the love I know these weird, adorkable friends share. That they are not just putting up with each other, but are a family. I think that's one hell of a theme for the 200th episode. So I'm sitting here with a goofy, happy smile on my face, just enjoying this huge milestone for the show and the lovely relationships that these amazing characters and the cast have with each other. How's that for a unicorn puking rainbows..
  5. True, but it's always fun to guess
  6. Now I'm gonna say a random episode 9x20. That or season finale. I have no clue anymore
  7. Thank you for posting these. Those are some adorable moments coming So we didn't get anything big, which makes a tiny bit disappointed, but the Shamy scenes sound super sweet. Especially the bolted part, I'm gonna die when we see it!
  8. I'm thinking it'll be something big, bigger than just Sheldon's birthday party.. Boy why can't Wednesday get here sooner!
  9. That. I felt like they were finally ready to bury the hatched so to speak and that could've led to a good conversation when they both had calmed down a bit. Meemaw expressed her concerns about Amy leaving and hurting Sheldon again, this would've been a perfect opportunity for Amy to explain that she loves Sheldon and why Meemaw's concerns are unnecessary. But I get that there was a limited time frame.
  10. We don't see Amy's face very well, but when Sheldon says he planned to give it to her (*giggle*), she looks away from Sheldon and if I saw right, she gulped. To me it seems like she's just letting it sink in, Sheldon had the engagement ring, he wanted to marry her! And when Sheldon says that he couldn't because they broke up, she turns to look into his eyes. Maybe this was the moment she realized just how serious Sheldon was with her before the break up, he had the ring already back then. I think the look on her face was kinda mix of surprised and shocked. Then Meemaw interrupts saying: Thank goodness for that! and Amy frowns and turns away looking annoyed (and for a reason imo). She was so taken off guard with the ring revelation that I think for a moment she had almost forgotten Meemaw was there and the whole ugly fight she had with her and just wanted Sheldon to continue talking. Even Sheldon was annoyed by Meemaw's snarky interruption.
  11. I just love Sheldon's smile after Meemaw gives them her blessing And he doesn't mind Amy patting his shoulder, but when he sees her goofy smile, he's like jeez I'm not giving it to you NOW
  12. Oh I'd like that! It would actually make a really good 200th episode and fit all the guest stars.
  13. I'm starting to feel the same way about this. We're expecting something big story-wise, but with all these guest stars, I don't know. I really wanted it to be about the living arrangements, but now I doubt it will. But I'm not worried, I bet it's still fun and entertaining even if there's no big plot twists. Of course I'm hoping at least some Shamy scenes and sweetness, although the last episode sounded super cute. Well we'll find out soon.
  14. After that if I ever have to read that Sheldon doesn't have desires or doesn't want Amy, I'll scream.
  15. So things to look forward to: Shelly defending Amy to his Meemaw and putting his arm around her Amy giving Sheldon the goofy eyes after learning about the ring Renamed FWF! Sheldon admitting that the break up did only good for their relationship and that they are stronger than ever Amy being all giddy about her sex life and being an "adult" Drunken Sheldon! Well hello Emmy 2016.. Sheldon raising his glass to Amy and winking at her! I can't get over it, it sounds so cute Shamy being drama free and just happy and in love in the background
  16. Thank you so much! Sounds like an awesome episode. I'm so loving Amy being all excited to be able to join the "adult" conversation and drunken Sheldon is always hilarious. And Sheldon raising his glass to Amy and winking? *swoon* Oh I'm glad they went with the "That's catchy" line!
  17. Maybe he'll go shopping for a new bed with Amy. They can test it together
  18. Exactly how I took it, as a crappy joke trying to break the tension. Usually I just sigh at inconsistencies, because those happen almost in every show. Sometimes it's frustrating, but I try to not get myself worked up because of those.
  19. Now it might be me who's beating the poor, dead horse since I recall this discussion happening at least once or twice, so I apologize in advance. He'd been working through his issues with intimacy ever since he met Amy. It was a slowly process, but he was making progress at his own pace. I believe he was really close at getting there in 8x24. The break up was probably the final trigger that sealed the deal, because he realized the true value of Amy and their relationship and most of all, was finally confronting his own feelings instead of running away from them or trying to suppress them. He already had Amy back, unconditionally in 9x10 and there was no pressure to have coitus on Amy's part. In the aquarium episode Amy kinda confirmed to us and to Sheldon that the break up wasn't about sex. It might have played a small role in it alongside with other issues, but it wasn't the main point. So I don't see the coitus as a sacrifice in order to keep her around. For me, it was always about him showing her how much he loves her and trusts her. That he trusts her so much that he was ready to be all in and not holding back anymore, despite of his issues with intimacy. During the break up he had to face his own feelings and the fact that he can't be "Spock". I think it also helped him accept his urges and desires. And when they reconciliated, he was ready to take that next step with her. Not for her. So I see it as a 5 year long journey for him which slowly led to the 9x11, not something that happened suddenly or was just a way to keep Amy from leaving. Why was it the next episode after reconciliation? It probably had more to do with the SW, than anything else. Of course, everyone can make up their own minds about it, this is just how I see it and why it makes sense to me. ETA: I see many of you beat me to the punch. Sorry for repeating the same points!
  20. Before the Meemaw episode, I hoped Amy wouldn't find out about the ring, but after the first shock, I'm fine with it. I agree with April here, to me the element of surprise isn't what makes it beautiful. I'm not a huge fun of those big, surprise, over-the-top (imo) romantic proposals. To me the most important thing is how he'll ask it and what he'll say. And I don't need a super hippie-dippie speech, just something that's genuine, straight from the heart and still has that little Shamy quirkiness. Oh and of course Amy saying yes! Also before Amy knew about the ring, I was totally fine with her popping the question. Now it would easily look like she's pushing it, so I hope the writers will handle it differently.
  21. No problem, vent away my friend. And about the bolted part, I think that's something we should all try to remember, we're all here for the same cause. We want nothing but good things for this couple. When our opinions are drastically differing from each others', it's easy to forget that and feel like the other party is hating or, like you said, demanding Amy's head on a stake.
  22. I guess it's just these hiatuses when we have no new episode or TR to discuss when I feel like we're getting nowhere new with some of the discussions. It's the beating of a dead horse which can sometimes be exhausting. Does that mean that those topics should not be discussed? Nope. Do I sometimes wish people could let go of certain dead horses and focus more on other stuff? Sure. Does that mean I'm right and people should take my advice? Nope. Sure these conversations can sometimes bring the mood down, but I'm not here to tell anyone to stop posting something or force them to think positive, even if that works for me. Those two episodes you mentioned almost healed my broken Shamy heart. It's not what it used to be before the break up, but strong enough so I can be a bit more carefree and trustful than some others I guess. I think that's why I'm not bothered by individual lines when in my eyes the whole picture looks great. And you're right, neither "group" is right or wrong, everyone is entitled to feel worried or happy with how things are going and voicing those opinions. Regarding whether we should or shouldn't be talking about the un-aired episodes. Like you said, this and the DT include spoilers and they are here for us to be discussed. That's what we do, including myself. What happens very often, is that the episode turns out to be a lot different than it sounded in TR. A lot of my own worries have turned out to be unnecessary once I've watched the ep. I know this is nothing new, I was only pointing out that before making up one's mind about how horrible some line is, maybe we could wait for the episode to air and then pass judgement on it. That doesn't mean that we can't discuss about these lines. I hope that you, or anyone else, don't feel like you should eliminate certain posts. Whether it's happy gushing over Shamy cuteness or expressing one's worries about the future, this thread is a safe place to do those both and I wish it continues to be that way
  23. And I hope that she will eventually get over this and like her as well. Well I think that Meemaw not liking Amy because of the break up was the most believable or natural reason for her to not like her. I would've been confused if she'd been totally fine with the break up and then disliked her for some other reason, like you said she seemed to not have a problem with her when she gave her the cookie recipe. I think it only makes sense that she'd be concerned because of the break up. And we have to remember that this is just from Meemaws POV, I'm not putting the blame only on Amy. Meemaw, however, won't observe this break up objectively. You said that this isn't about Meemaw, but the writers being obssessed with the break up, but aren't the writers trying to write what seems natural to the characters? And to me the break up seems like the most "real" reason for her to be upset with Amy. Sure one can argue why she needed to be upset with Amy at all, but I felt it was to be expected. Oh I hope that the writers will move on from this break up and not bring it up every now and then like this, I'm totally with you on that one. I really do wish they will or that we'll see that long overdue Talk between them.
  24. Why does Meemaw have to like Amy? Sure it would've made a nice sweet scene tho.. And how is she an obstacle in their relationship? As far as I understood, it did no harm to their relationship. Sheldon stood up for his lady and I don't think Meemaw will try and get in their way. I've already said many pages back that I had always thought Meemaw was kinda badass, not at all the fluffy, sweet granny Sheldon made her sound like. I mean she killed a prairie dog with a gravy boat! We know that Sheldon's her soft spot, her Moonpie who's just so nummy nummy that she could eat him up. She also seems to know him really well, so she knows that he's not the easiest man to be with. She knows that being with him means sometimes helping him and calling him out and that it might be hard or tiresome for his SO. It takes a certain type of person to be with a man like that. Ya'll know how much I love Sheldon and I'm not implying that he's totally helpless, but some things cannot be changed. And he'll need a patient partner who loves him dearly. We know how perfect Amy is for him, but Meemaw doesn't. She had never met her and when they broke up, she probably heard a one-sided story about it from Sheldon. All she knows is that this is the woman who broke her grandson's heart into pieces. This is the woman, who got so tired of him once that she broke up with him. So how can she be sure that she won't get tired again, especially knowing how challenging he can sometimes be? And after 6 months of heartbreak, they get back together and I doubt Sheldon gave her a detailed report on why and how it happened. Why would she trust her? Why would she be welcoming Amy with open arms into their family? And I don't think her trust and acceptance can be earned in one day, even if Sheldon assures her that the break up was indeed necessary. With that being said, I'm not saying that I like Meemaw's behavior or think it's all justified, just that I get why she acts like that. She has concerns and I think she might have had them even without the break up. I hope that over time she'll come around and really gets to know Amy and eventually like her. Still I'm not worried at all, I think this'll be a hilarious episode with some great, important stuff.
  25. As much as I enjoy reading different opinions and at their best they can create insightful conversation here, I'm kinda tired of reading the same arguments over and over. Don't get me wrong, everyone is 100% entitled to express their concerns, but maaan I feel like no one is getting anything new or helpful out of some of these recurring topics. Now I don't need this thread to be all sunshine and rainbows (what's the fun in that anyway?), but sometimes I feel like people are tearing these characters or individual lines from episodes we haven't even seen yet into peaces by over-analyzing them or by ignoring the context. This is not pointed to anyone particular and I myself am guilty of doing so as well once or twice. I know that I may come across as a bit of a "yes-man" since I usually find my way to be okay with the show's direction and have kinda few groans at the end of the day. I am not always pleased with the writers' choices and there's nothing wrong with questioning them. I just really hope that we as well as the writers can start moving on from all this break up stuff. I don't need Shamy to be perfect, they will both be jerks sometimes, Sheldon will always need a little bit of assistance and guidance and Amy will have to accept that some things cannot be changed (which I hope she already has of course), Sheldon will always be somewhat annoying pain in the neck and Amy will still be annoyed by him from time to time (I don't know about you, but my SO is the person who often annoys me the most, even though/because I love him more than anyone. No? Just me and my cold Northerner heart? Carry on). To me these are the facts of their characters and their relationship. And I don't see them as a bad thing, watching perfect couples doing perfectly, well who wants that They have their flaws, as a couple and as individuals, but they can make it work together as the Pasadena's favorite power couple they still are, at least in my aforementioned cold Northerner heart. I'm fine with people having concerns and voicing them, I really am, but I feel like no matter what the writers will do, it won't please everyone. Someone will always have a problem with it. And even when we get so much goodness (do I even need to make a list lol), someone will always point out the one thing we didn't get or the one thing that should've be done differently. But I guess that's what we do here and it's all fine. And us, a little more positive (everyone who knows me irl would burst into laughter right now, you positive? Get outta town!) or satisfied fans just have to try to keep our buzz alive (wine helps, I've tried). With all that being said, I still hope I get to continue to enjoy all these great posts, even if I wouldn't always agree with the content. I don't even know if I had any greater point or meaning in this post, just my endless rambling on this dark and cold Monday night. I hope no one is offended by any of this, that's not my purpose. I'm just a harmless not-so-much-of-a-giant from a foreign land *insert Leonard's puppy eyes gif*
