Yes, shamydawson said Sheldon said when thinks of throwing something away he gets a ringing in his ears, butterflies in his tummy and something about fire...he definitely actually struggles with this as a real condition.  Sad.

Doesn't everyone feel discomfort when they have to throw out things they'd rather keep ? If one's in a position to keep them that's good, surely ?  How can it be anything to be ashamed of ?

I think most people keep things because A, they may need them in the future, B, those things have special meanings to them. In Sheldon's case, he keeps everything. For example, the old golf ball. I don't think he'll need it in the future and clearly he has no emotional attachment to it. So why does he keep it? Because he has too. He feels uncomfortable throwing it away even though he knows there's no use keeping it. And he does this to every object he has ever owned.

For a rational person like Sheldon, this can be something to be ashamed of. Because what he does is not logical or rational.

We're talking about stuff like old toothbrushes and broken laptops and useless golf balls and god knows what's in that storage room. It's explicitly mentioned that the simple act of throwing away things like that is causing him discomfort of some sort. Most people are able and happy to throw away an old used toothbrush - they don't keep them to gather dust in a storage room somewhere. Like, we're not talking about him keeping stuff that he wants to keep or deems useful, like keeping an old toothbrush to use as a cleaning utensil or something. It's a storeroom full of useless broken stuff that seemingly has not value to him beyond the fact that throwing it away would cause him discomfort. That is a problem.

I don't think the question mark line was a way to show Sheldon's quirk. Yes many other people don't mess up with their puctuation and grammer in their texts either. And their friends can tell if they are sober or not by a question mark. Just like Amy can tell but Penny can't. They are not saying Shelon's weird. They are showing us how well Amy knows Sheldon.

Thank you !  Not only do I not get all the jokes, there are occasions when I don't know whether a line is a joke or not. I'm glad to know that line was not one. I've been puzzling over it since the TR.

Now can somebody explain Howard's one about the hot tub please ? It got laughs.

I don't know which one you're referring to but I was there at the taping of that episode. Let me tell you this, when you are there with over 200 people and a very, very enthusiastic MC in the front trying everything to make you laugh, you just laugh more than you normally do. Sometimes the lines are not funny but people still laugh. And when others laugh, somehow you laugh too. It's contagious.

I'm waiting for an episode where Sheldon says something dirty but Amy has gotten so used to him not making/understanding innuendos so she takes it literally, and then Sheldon says, "Amy, I'm talking about coitus, silly!" something like: 

S: Thank you for driving me home... maybe you'd like to come upstairs so I can return the favor and give you a ride...

A: No thanks. I wiped out the last time I tried your Batman scooter. 

S: .....Amy, I'm talking about coitus.

That would be fantastic! I would love to see that happen!:giveheart:

LMAO I was just joking with Luna about the same thing. If those failed flirting attempts are some kind of long running gag with a final punchline like that it would be hilarious!

(Yes, I'm easily amused.)

Actually he has the golf ball cause his brother hit him with it on his head for telling his brother that a pinecone looks like (something sciencetific I don't remember!) n left a dent on his head. He also has the pinecones saved in a box too

Thanks. I'm beginning to see what this problem is. I'm never 'happy' to throw away anything but I am 'able' to force myself to dispense with items that are not of sentimental value and have turned out to be unrepairable, unsalvable or unrecyclable. I must admit it does cause pain but I make myself put up with it. Sheldon can't.

That, and from what I can tell from your previous posts you already have a pretty good support system in place. Sheldon isn't quite there, yet. It's the first time he's opened up to anyone about this so it will take time for him to sort this out. I don't know if the show will revisit this plot but it would be nice to see if he's made progress with Amy's help a few episodes down the line.

It would be good if there was something in there he could use to mend something else.. As Raj says, old, broken things are so much more interesting than new things that work. I daresay it's getting the old tings to work again  that's the fun.  Or even better  - there might be a part for whatever they're building. I'd no idea before that this was supposed to be a problem : perhaps turning items to good use would help. Sheldon's obviously finding his hoarding bothers him but Amy might be able to cure it.

OMG, dream come true.  I would seriously scream if I read this in a TR...no matter who was around.

And THIS folks is what the bathroom conversation and the hug in 200 were about.  Last season we had Penny say she sees him like a brother.  In 200 Leonard told Sheldon he IS his brother.

How can anyone think TPTB would consider destroying this with a Shenny twist in the end of the series?  This is a beautiful, imperfect but loving family, all these guys and gals. Think about it - none of them have great, functional happy families of their own, so they all made one together.  Happy sigh...

Not to put a damper on our fun with Schrödinger's Sex Live™ but a bit from Molaro, thanks to vonmar in the general thread:

Quote

Sheldon and Amy’s sex life has cooled off considerably since [their] inaugural love-making session in December. “Sheldon made it pretty clear that this would be an annual event on her birthday,” explains showrunner Steve Molaro. “I don’t know what the future holds, but so far, he’s been sticking to that.”

So then, is the cat dead? Is this just empty showrunner talk? I mean, would he say something like "Well, of course they're getting busy off-screen!" here??

Hmmm....

So...according to Molaro, Sheldon and Amy only had sex that one time. And he's not sure (yeah right...) what the future holds...Interesting...With a little faith, something good could come out of this ;) Maybe we should start a countdown for the episodes left in this season? :icon_cheesygrin::icon_cheesygrin: Because I'm pretty sure that if this sex thing is ever to be properly addressed, it will have to be in this season because otherwise it won't make sense.

*Also, for anyone who's interested, there are documentaries about hoarders online that you can watch. I found a few on youtube, I don't know if they're still there but try and look them up, they're very interesting. People have actually died from this condition...

I don't actually think them having sex was a one time thing. It would be weird if they treated it that way. And very anticlimatic - especially after all the anticipation. I just hope that when they do address this, it will all come together nicely.

Well...I guess it's safe to say he knows better! Anyway the writers are doing anything they can to remind us that the cat (which now we know is dead) is indeed in the box. In the past seasons there were the usual (and never hated enough) jokes about frustrated Amy and oblivious Sheldon or reminders that the two of them didn't do it, but the were not as frequent as they are now (almost in every episode past 9x11...) So I'll stick with my idea that TPTB are trying to capitalize as much as they can this plot line. Nobody will care anymore  how often they have or don't have sex after  their second on-screen time, so they are just teasing the audience on the subject to keep them interested. And it's working, at least for me...I won't be once a year, because otherwise it would be really predictable, but they will play with this plot line  for some\a long time, JMO.

I trust Molaro as far as I can throw him.  He always covers his ass with statements like "I don't know what the future holds"..... whatever Steve. :icon_rolleyes:

They could be writing implied coitus into the next script as we speak.

 

Or not... no expectations = no disappointment
