I'll admit that I was extra excited to see that Thursday's return of "The Big Bang Theory" was an episode focusing on "Shamy."
Sheldon being Sheldon, he could care less about Amy's scientific accomplishments, and instead boasted about his 100 Twitter followers... so it looked like he was in the dog house.
And so Leonard stepped in with some tried and true advice: "You skip over any attempt to repair your emotional connection and you win back her affection with an empty financial gesture."
Music to Sheldon's ears!
In the meantime, yet another red flag popped up for Howard and Bernadette: she doesn't want children (and she didn't exactly warm up to the idea during Howard's disastrous magic performance in front of some youngsters).
Howard explained his troubles to his fellow nerds while they played "Donkey Kong" Jenga: "Even Donkey Kong had Donkey Kong, Jr., so he could teach someone how to kidnap princesses and throw barrels at Italian plumbers."
The couple agreed that Howard would be a stay-at-home dad. But I still see rough roads ahead for these two.
And how did things go with Sheldon? Despite some initial skepticism from Amy, here is how she reacted: "It's a tiara! A tiara. I have a tiara! Put it on me, put it on me, put it on me, put it on me, put it on me, put it on me, put it on me."
I'm just saying, we need a Mayim Bialik Emmy nomination.
