For example, Amy's comment in 8.24: "Can you believe we've been together five years?" Sheldon: "I know." And of course, in this last episode, how they wistfully thought back to their first date at the coffee shop. I'm currently watching through all the BBT episodes with my roommate, who's watching BBT for the very first time. We're partway through season 4, and it's just so funny to see Sheldon (and to a lesser degree Amy did this as well) ADAMANTLY refuse to refer to Amy as his girlfriend. And now all these years later, they both say they've been together since 4.01. I think one of the things about Sheldon that really resonates with me is his rare and uncharacteristic willingness to admit to being wrong or unsuccessful in any way when it comes to Amy. This is why what he said at the end of 9.09 ("I excel at many things, but getting over you wasn't one of them") is so powerful to me. It's like Amy is the only one he will swallow his pride for. It's funny because my roommate asked me, "When do Sheldon and Amy get together?" And I stopped and had to think about it for a moment. I was like, "Well, that's kind of hard to answer. They don't 'officially' become girlfriend and boyfriend until season 5, but they remain platonic until season 7. However now they both consider season 4 as the beginning of their relationship." And my roommate looked at me funny because she's just witnessed episode after episode of "Amy is a girl who is a friend, but she is NOT my girlfriend." And I'm just like, it will make sense later lol. I don't know why I find it so endearing. It's like even when they didn't show signs of having feelings for each other yet (which, IMO, started happening for Sheldon in Alien Parasite and for Amy in Herb Garden) and vigorously denied having them at the time, NOW they realized that even from day one at the coffee shop, those feelings were absolutely there. That's so freakin cute. <3 <3 I so want Sheldon to propose in the coffee shop where they first met.
