[Spoilers] Discussion: Season 10

I find it interesting that Sheldon has forgotten that you don't discuss people's sex life in public, because he figured it out all by himself in the Jiminy Conjecture episode in season three. 

Sheldon: Is this it? It was inappropriate to discuss Leonard and Penny’s sex life in front of Leonard and Penny. ... Oh, good! Now I can eat.

Yeah, sounds like he truly learned a life lesson here! /s

LOL

To what episode are you referring here?

In the latest TR he did tell leonard that they were both honest with each other 100%, as of the last two episodes. Obviously that's not true and as Amy wasn't there he is speaking for both of them.

The last TR was pretty vague and he just told Leonard that he and Amy are honest with each other - which is coming right after the episode where they talked about their issues and decided to be more honest and trusting with each other. So you're having a problem with the show keeping in line with continuity here?? Alright, whatever.

and even unnecessarily adding the "in sin" when telling his mother that he and Amy live together in 10x12.

I think, in that case, he was having a dig at his mother, over her self-righteousness and hypocrisy.

See how long thats going to last. I dont remember the tr where they it was said they promise to be honest with each other. And the latest tr specifically said sheldon told leonard that they were always honest with each other. And yes I have an issue with continuity. You do not treat you audience as idiot's.

Its problems with continuity. It can't be Sheldon's fault.

His Mother is not hypocritical at all. She's human. Christians can get laid. She's not a nun.

I just thought what Sheldon told his mother was funny because they weren't living in sin. Well, hardly, anyway. Or do Shamy think New Yorkers copulate only once a year ? I am confused wondering what Amy actually tipped off Mary about, unless Amy thought the situation was about to change.

She is human and she is not a nun. Both true.

The rest is false but I have no interest in getting into a long discussion on it. It is not easy to avoid being at least somewhat hypocritical.

According to "dry", "legal" logic this could be correct, but the thing here is more about social norms and coventions. Telling best friends is not like telling strangers, and this ia not a thing one should tell the lunch lady or colleagues (who are not their close friends). This is a weak area for Sheldon, he has social difficulties (his high IQ is irrelevant in here, you don't have to have a good understading of social dynamics to score high on intelligence tests) . I think it wouldn't be surprising at all if something like that happened in season 4. IMO, the problem is that we have seen Sheldon beeing more discrete about sex (e.g., next to Lenny on "The Birthday Syncronity"), so it feels a little off.

How does this kind of thing even come up in discussion? "I'll take the green jello. By the way, my girlfriend and I only have sex once a year." I just don't see WHY Sheldon would feel the need to share such details.

Quite true ! Good for you.  And if we all avoided hypocrisy, whatever our faith was, and obeyed all the teachings of its founder, we wouldn't need one.

I liked that Mary conceded that there were 'special circumstances' for Shamy living together out of wedlock  (even though she didn't know the 'in sin' part was hardly necessary ) despite the snarky reason she gave. Sheldon knew his mother wasn't as scrupulous as she should be about this sort of thing in her own life and she hadn't married the fellow Bible classer whose 'perfect booty' had led her into temptation. Only Howard,so far as we've been shown, among the gang knows about that. I bet Mary, who appears to make up her own religion as she goes along, never for a moment reflected over the sloppy joes how she'd strayed herself. If she'd said to Shamy what she'd said to Penny about being 'married in the eyes of the Lord' we'd have had none of Sheldon's shenanigans and she'd still have wrong-footed him. 

I hope we see Mary again this season.

Well, he always takes things rather literally. So he won't discuss Lenny's sex life in front of Lenny again (however, idk if he stuck with it in later episodes). Perhaps he is even able to transfer it to other people, so he won't discuss his and Amy's sex life in front of Amy (half-check - apart from comments that it took them hours). But nowhere does it say that it is inappropriate to discuss his and Amy's sex life in front of others. Oh wait, what about that NDA he wrote himself? Perhaps it just ran away together with Lenny's RA (can't blame them)... Anyway, can't trust those eidetic memories anymore, LOL!

Exactly. Not talking about someone else's sex life in front of said person(s) isn't the same as not discussing your own sex life in front of others. 

As for how the lunch lady was told? If she mentioned something about birthdays, or an activity she does once a year ("I was away last week as my husband and I were visiting the grandkids, something we do once a year") or any other aspect tangentially related to Shamy's once a year sex, I can see Sheldon replying with a comment about his sex life. He's attempting to better connect with people socially/emotionally, and this would be his attempt at doing so, replying in a way he thought was connected to the conversation. Wasn't it Penny who once praised him with a response like "That was almost on topic. I'm going to say 'good job' Sheldon"?

Who knows what was even in that NDA. It was a single line that was never elaborated on. Wouldn't be the first time the writers let something like this fall by the wayside.

Yeah and it wasn't like it was the focus of anything, it was used as a gag for the storage unit reveal.

On the tenure thing the impression I took away from the episode was that the University came up with a way to prevent from happening again what happened between them when a position becomes open. Exact details are sketchy but I believed they were all now very close to getting a tenured position should positions become available again. As they work in different departments or fields, maybe as soon as a position becomes available they will likely get it?

Not a storyline I would revisit again some day and I hope the writers don't for obvious reasons.

I don't think there is any risk of TPTB ever revisiting tenure again. I'm pretty sure (now) that they did the tenure story just for the situations that arose at that moment and the laughs they got then. If we were going by anything close to reality, the matter of who received tenure would have been done for a long time, whether it was one of the guys or somebody else. The only one of the guys who would probably haven't gotten it would have been Sheldon because of his change of field of study. But... TBBT isn't very based in reality anymore, so if it pleased the writers I'm sure they wouldn't have a problem giving tenure to Cinnamon.

Same. I mean, Sheldon has his ways to induce all sorts of topics into conversations so if any of the characters would be able to mention their sex life to the lady in the cafeteria I can easily believe it would be him. But still...

Even if it happened in the most accidental way Amy is rightfully angry.

Talking about that to the cafeteria lady is indeed inexcusable.

His mother is a total hypocrite. A Christian fanatic such as Mary fervently believes that there shouldn't be sex outside of marriage, except apparently when it pertains to her. I don't believe what she believes, but if she's a true Christian she should not be having sex out of wedlock. I don't make the rules, but...

I think that duality is part of her character as defined in the show.  Remember early on, Mary came on hard to Dr. Gablehauser (who was equally interested), so much so that Sheldon asked if Dr. Gablehauser was going to be "my new daddy"....

You are right! Indeed! I was just thinking about the guy with the perfect booty, I think she called it. But you are absolutely correct, she has been a hypocrite for much longer than I remembered!

You might want to take a look at the definition of hypocrisy.

Hypocrisy is defined as saying or feeling one thing and doing another.

Yes, she said it in The Clean Room Infiltration:-

Penny: Hey, how are things going with your parents?

Raj; Not great. They hired divorce attorneys.

Sheldon: You know, speaking of attorneys, if I ever needed a lawyer, I would not hire She-Hulk.

Penny: You know what? That was almost on topic. I’m gonna say good job, Sheldon.
