koops Posted May 16, 2013 Posted May 16, 2013 (edited) I never said Hawking episode showed growth ... I was talking about Howard trying to take revenge or mocking him for all the insults over the years... So same goes for the rest of the gang as now Sheldon is doing the exact thing which he resented others for doing so..... And you keep saying he is Sheldon he won't do that ...he won't do this... Can you see Sheldon of earlier seasons having a girlfriend with whom he wants to be physically intimate with.......(surely you would have said certainly not Sheldon if you were asked this question in earlier seasons ) was'nt one of his fundamental characteristic that he does not like to engage in physical activities...now everything changed as he is working on it because he wants to engage in physical activites..... I think what Phanta is saying, and forgive me if I'm wrong, is that there isn't going to be one moment where suddenly Sheldon does a 180 and becomes apologetic about his arrogance. There might be more and more moments where he recognizes other people's value or achievements as opposed to the past (I think this season, when he appreciate Penny's help and acting, was one of those moments), but they are still going to be accompanied by moments of arrogance and dismissal (like in the sneak peek for the finale where he tells her "No wonder you didn't get the commercial"). Just like with sex: it was a gradual build up over 3 years to even get him to admit interest, and it's going to continue being a gradual build up. I think that's what Phanta meant by "Certainly not Sheldon". He doesn't change suddenly from one moment to the next.
