    Sorry about the quote...

    I'm not an expert on how OCD and trauma work so correct me if I'm wrong.

    Traumatic experiences can lead an individual to develop OCD which is a way for them to cope with what happened. In Sheldon's case, seeing his father cheat on his mother was a traumatic experience for him. Now, OCD begins with an irrational thought that stresses you out which keeps coming back and every time you have to go through the circle of giving into the thought and do/think something in order to make the thought and the resulting stress go away. For Sheldon this thought is "I better knock three times otherwise I might just happen upon a scene like in my father's bedroom. (This is where sexuality gets involved too. Sheldon's father's sexuality and the trauma that it caused him made him be repulsed by/afraid of everyone's sexuality, hence the knocking to be sure that the coast will be clear). Furthermore, the closure that he feels from knocking three times ensures that his irrational thought/fear will be put to rest.

    Like I said, correct me if I'm wrong.

    Could be the reason he can't lie or keep a secret either...

    I honestly thought that was the comedy of it all...? We've heard about this drug dealer brother of her's for years, so to finally "meet him" and be confronted with this straight-laced, happy looking guy? Classic.

    IMHO, it's just bad casting

    Also, in The Anxiety Optimisation, Leonard says Sheldon tried his first energy drink, ran around the University grounds for a while, then threw up in his glove compartment.

    BTW glove "compartment"?

    I thought Americans had glove boxes?

    I say glove compartment... I think the 2 are interchangeable

    Really ? I thought that was Howard and his second cousin Jeanie. I must be mixed up. Perhaps Bernadette had more than one very tall lover then. Luckily, Amy didn't go far enough to find out if Bernadette was right about driving tests.

    I think it was Bernie and Howard's first date.  They found out the both lost their virginity in Toyotas.   Howard in a Corolla, Bernie in a Camry.  Here's the clip:

    And Bernadette should know  :  that's the clue that the  6'7"  professor, Glenn, in Love Car 4.13 was probably her first. Howard was worried when they were introduced but it was Howard she chose for a husband.

    Not too sure about that.... IIRC, Bernadette said she lost her virginity in a Camry.  Glenn was one of her professors, so I'm assuming that their activity happened in at least a hotel room, not a car. 

  6. With all this talk about Dave and Sheldon's height... I can't stop thinking of the comment Bernadette made to Amy about Amy and Dave having dinner in her apartment and that could possibly lead to sex.  Bernadette, knowing how tall Dave is and that Amy is a virgin, says "That's like taking your driver's license test with a bus!"
    Can't find a clip... sorry

    I was thinking about that scene, when I was portraying Sheldon in my mind. Thanks for the gif Carm6773! But the pants have to be more tight and instead of his superhero t-shirts he should wear a plaid shirt. And the bootlegs could be a little bit longer. The stetson does fit him, he has the perfect head for it. To sum it up,  I liked his outfit.

    I agree.  We have a player here for the Tampa Bay Rays, Kevin Kiermaier (otherwise known as my baseball boyfriend), whose nickname is Outlaw.  Here's a pic in a plaid shirt.  You're welcome.

    Well from what I know parents in her culture are very strict about these things. Sorry if anyone here belongs to that culture and correct me if I'm saying something wrong but it's not exactly female-friendly and it's common anyway for many people to be afraid of their parents reaction in such matters.

    I see no one appreciates a genious Nanny reference. I'll go cry in my corner ;p

    The reference rang a bell, but I just couldn't place it... sorry!

    Yep, I married a smart short guy from New Jersey... wait... I married Leonard!  I'm definitely not Penny; people say I remind them of Amy.

    BTW... you can tell when hubby has been on the road for a while (he's a truck driver) and I'm missing him... I start talking about him a LOT.  July 15th can't get here soon enough!

    Whos making fun of who's looks? Amy? Well let's be honest shes not the chick in the show. That is not a slight, just a fact. Bernadette and Penny are the eyecandy. Amy offers something different intelectualy and that is okay 

    So a female can be intelligent or eye candy, but not both?!

    I need to find out where Amy shops for clothes. My 90 year old mum favours her style of blouse but we just can't seem to find them anymore. Does anyone have a link to a store that sells online Amy gear- like Sheldon shirts?

    I think it's called Goodwill or Salvation Army... maybe that donation bin where Bernie found the cute boots and said it was OK to take them because she serves soup to poor people.

     (I guess it's possible Leonard might have told him).

    Judging by how grossed out he was, I'm thinking it went into the realm of That Which Must Not Be Mentioned Again.  Penny might have said something, though.

    Alright.. firstly Happy Anniversary all you awesome nerds!

    I don't know about you guys but I'm already missing the show.. soo.. let's make this interesting.

    Answer these questions.. if you feel like it of course :


    1. When, according to you, did Sheldon fall in love with Amy?

    2. Amy's called Sheldon brilliant and a genius plenty of time. How many times has Sheldon complimented Amy on her intelligence?

    3. Would you rather have the coitus or living arrangements settled in S10?


    1. I think it was Pulled Groin... She is not for you!    

    2. Sheldon is complimenting Amy's intelligence when he calls her a Vixen, IMHO.

    3.  Can we have both??  I'm Shamy greedy...
