Oh, AMy in the new ep that taped last night was wearing her Yellow shoes and she could walk well in them.  Till she got drunk, then all bets were off.

There was a call back to 2.09 The White Asparagus Triangulation. Where Sheldon is trying to get information from Penny as to what went wrong between them:

Sheldon: ... so, you feel free to include any and all shortcomings in the bedroom.

Penny: We never got to the bedroom.

Sheldon: Because?

Penny: Oh, okay, all right, you know what? I’ll tell you what happened. We were young, we were very much in love, but we could only communicate through a time-traveling mailbox at my lake house.

Sheldon: It’s not enough that you made me watch that movie, but now you mock me with it?

In 7.04 The Raiders Minimization, Sheldon has an unscheduled video chat with Amy, and Amy says the last time he had an unscheduled video chat with her, there was a curly fry mixed in with his regular fries. He reminisced, "A dark night, indeed." In 8.03, he talks about how he doesn't like curly fries.

maybe it's not visible then on the mobile version. I just see Season 8 Call Backs and no [spoilers].

 

Possibly not, but on the full site version, it does have a spoiler tag. :(

 

 

 

That said, I have something to add to the 8x09 episode. Amy said she was distracted by Sheldon because he was wearing extra baby powder that day, which is a callback to 4x21 when she says he smells like baby powder and he says it's Talcum powder, and she says he's like a sexy toddler. :laugh:
