Wearing the Green Lantern t-shirt.

I want Amy to say "Yes" as the new season begins, after that she can wear all the Green Lantern t-shirts she likes, LOL!

As I think about how 11.01 could play out, the writers have 4 options:

immediate yes

delayed yes (love the panic attack theory y'all have)

immediate no

no for now but let's talk about it after Amy's done at Princeton

I don't think I going to be an immediate yes- otherwise what's the point of a cliffhanger other than boosting ratings? They got the two year renewal and all indications are that they're done at 12 (not ready to say goodbye to this show but that's another post.)

Delayed yes seems the most likely to me: Amy's definitely in shock but she definitely wasn't expecting Sheldon to fly 3,000 miles and be on bended knee when she opens her door. (Majim nailed that scene, btw!) As far as she knows, Sheldon is in Pasadena and there's another chick sniffing around the goods. If I was Amy, I'd have more than a few questions about what happened to make my commitment phobic boyfriend fly across the country to propose. Ultimate gesture to show he's ready but I'd definitely be concerned it's out of guilt.

Immediate no: I consider this the least likely scenario. Amy wants this more than anything else and we had that episode with her crying to the girls about not moving forward with her relationship with Sheldon. This option would completely destroy Sheldon and I think be the end of Shamy as well as the show's jump the shark moment. Fans would totally revolt. Not happening.

Delayed no: to me this is the most interesting option and could open up some comedic and touching storylines as Sheldon tries to prove he's ready and only has eyes for Amy. As I said above, I can see Amy thinking the proposal is from a place of guilt and not being done for the right reasons. This could create a little drama and tension, as well as draw in more viewers who are wondering "is this the week?" Don't get me wrong, I loved the tag last night, but it didn't feel "Shamyesque." The writers could get a redo ala Lenny. The more I think about it, the more I love this option.

Do we really think he's "commitment phobic?" 

Part of me [ideally, my brain] thinks he gets too committed to certain habits, behaviors, people, etc.

Yes, I do, actually. Sheldon has had to be pushed and forced by circumstance into each and every major milestone of this relationship, but once he's coerced, he finds it's not as bad as he imagined.  I don't doubt that he loves Amy, but he's s creature of habit. If Ramona hadn't kissed him, would he have proposed? I somehow doubt it.

Needs to open with them in bed and Amy with messy sex hair.

Well, for the s11 premiere I would not put my money on it, as the proposal 's answer must be heard from Amy to Sheldon and imo it is a priority for our sake, lol! But as Amy came back from Princeton, I believe it could happen! Amy wearing a Sheldon 's shirt as they cuddle on bed! A girl can dream, right? :icon_cheesygrin:

Yes and no. The relationship itself, absolutely. He had to be dragged kicking and screaming (all show, of course). But the actual milestones? He jumped to most of those all on his own and far ahead of anything Amy (or we) expected. He kissed her first (first real kiss - not counting her drunken peck from a year before). He interrupted her stuttering attempt at "I love you but  I know you're not ready to say it yet so don't feel pressured" to say "I love you too." And he decided he was ready for coitus long before she expected him to and when there was no pressure from her to move forward physically.

 

I'm arguing that the train kiss came from a place of "I'll show her." It was only as his brain clicked, "hey, this isn't as icky as I imagined," that he moved in and placed his hands upon Amy's hips, deepening the kiss. I'll give you the "I love you," he said it first, however, an argument could be made for social convention. I'm certain that as a child it was drilled into him that when someone says, "I love you," you are expected to reply, "I love you too." As for coitus, in 8.24, Amy yelled at him, "after five years together, all I can get is a distracted makeout session on the couch?" It would be reasonable for Sheldon to believe that part of the reason Amy broke up with him is because their relationship wasn't physical at that point and that line was going through his head. He had just gotten her back in the previous episode and by sleeping with her, marking her as "his," giving her what she finally wanted (albeit once a year until recently) she would be less likely to leave him again.

It's green and grey. Green is willpower - the man is on a mission! ;)

It's also the same shirt combo he wore in Earworm and we all know how that ended...

 I have just rewatched the episode a few times and there is one moment that I can't  help myself as it cracks me up everytime I rewatch it, LOL!!

Our Amy was on fire for the Ramona thing and she was so right being like that! The bingo bang was priceless, LOL! Mayim was the queen last night with Kaley and Melissa. TBBT Girls get the power! :icon_cheesygrin:

Btw, I had myself  a kind of bingo bang moment too : summer of 2015. Found tbbt,  Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler. The rest is history, hehe! <3

I pointed this tidbit out on the DT, but the episode he is watching (sad as it is that I know this from the brief clip we saw!) is "Plankton!" and basically has a naive Spongebob initially being duped by Mr. Krab's nemesis into believing he was a friend but in reality was a bad guy on a mission to use Spongebob. Coincidence, or the writers having a little fun with the premise of this episode? ;)

I agree with @Capt. Hilts: This is such a brilliant detail, omg. I think I remember that episode from your description but it's been too long since I watched that show to catch the reference from the little snippet myself. So thank you for that!!! <3

Really impressive and very clever indeed. To put a small detail like that in the background with such meaning, just shows how much effort into their craft they put into that scene. Genius.

One of the reasons I remember it, aside from seeing it a million times, is because Plankton forces Spongrbob to call Squidward a "mediocre clarinet player" lol....best line ever on that show!

I have a lot of mixed feelings about the episode regarding shamy

I loved the episode in a general sense, and if Idon't  overthink the details I'm perfectly fine with it, so i'm going to separate my opinion in positive and negatives thougths:

- I have no doubt Sheldon is oblivious to ramona's advances ( with a but), he is not attracted to her in any form. 

- I'm not bothered by sheldon's reaction to the kiss, yes, it was longer that I expected therefore he had time to end it, but he was obviusly shocked and not everybody react in the same way to a shocking situation This morning I've seen my coworker stand still in the middle  of a crosswalk instead of run because  there was a car coming very fast  (don't worry, she is fine, the car stopped).

- I loved the excuse me  part and that he left directly to Amy.

- and the proposal, I'm totally fine with it, i think he is more than ready and he know it, i really think the real catalist to it was amy's departure and it was on his mind doing it at her return, ramona just has accelerated the moment.

-  so no, i think it's not out of guilt but out of love and ramona's kiss just ratified what he already knew it, there is no other woman however tall, blonde and ex swimmer she may be for him so, why wait?

-I still have not clear what I would like it to be amy's answer. A resounding yes right away would show confidence in sheldon, in his love, in his motives and in their relationship, and let him explain it later. But, as I said before not everybody react in the same way to a shocking situation, so a little panic attack and a delayed yes after an explanation is logical too.

My negative thoughts are all about oblivious sheldon, he was but he should be up to a that extent? I think he shoudn't:

-he is able to recognize that other scientist male can be a threat, so why he can't see it here after penny points it out to him?

- he didn' notice ramona is a woman? He, himself said amy awakened the sexual criature in him and noticed the pretty girls

-he is able to see leonard calling amy at night is inapropiate and not that ramona being in their apartament at the same hour is too? And why amy didn' tell him it is?

and in another note.

Ramona bought the toblerone in a duty free, in an aiport I guess, so she landed on Caltech with pursuing sheldon in her mind.

why penny got mad because Leonard did not describe ramona's looks to her, she did know her physically.
