Sheldon's first kiss on 'The Big Bang Theory'

Sheldon, out of his comfort zone, equals comedy gold. This is something that the writers of "The Big Bang Theory" are fully aware of, and they gave us a lot of that on Thursday night's episode.

Sheldon decided to join Penny and her besties for a night out on the town, after getting "lawyered" by Priya over his roommate agreement with Leonard (and what an impressive display that was; still not a Priya fan, but I enjoyed this).

It wasn't too long before the female trio were in various states of inebriation, and wanted to know if Sheldon had ever kissed a girl. The answer: Only his mother and Mee Maw.

Penny and Amy were all too happy to demonstrate, and by the time they were in a cab, Amy was clearly hammered, singing Katy Perry lyrics.

It was on to what appeared to be the only waltzing establishment in Los Angeles, and Sheldon and Amy hit the dance floor, while an older gentleman invited Penny to dance, just before getting all handsy. Quite possibly the funniest scene of the whole season.

Of course, that was just the build-up for Amy planting one on Sheldon at her apartment... and her quick, unrelated rush to the bathroom to purge.

So, might there be a romantic future for these two after all, at least in Amy's mind? I have a feeling we're in for a big season finale.

It wasn't quite over, though. Sheldon planned his revenge against Priya quite brilliantly, threatening to expose her relationship with Leonard to her conservative parents. Priya may have bitten off more than she can chew. After all, as Sheldon told her, "You may have gone to Cambridge, but I'm an honorary graduate of Starfleet Academy."

Leonard and Priya are headed for rough times ahead, it seems.

Once again, Mayim Bialik stole every scene she was in, and the relationship trials and tribulations took center stage, including the strained relationship between Leonard and Sheldon.

Where do you think things are headed? Post your thoughts below or tell us on iReport.

    I think it's time to meet Mee Maw.....I would love to see who would play this character.....I think is should be someone like that little old lady from the Wedding Singer....she needs to be added to the mix

      Great idea Lynn, maybe Sheldon could be telling a story about his Mee Maw and they could do a flash back showing the old lady. Betty White or Cloris Leachman? Who else would be good?

    Actually, I found this episode boring - they are always trying to get Sheldon. One thing I have always found about sitcoms - they let them drag out for years before finally putting an end to their misery. It's going to happen to the Big Bang Theory. When they finally wrap it up, I hope they do it painlessly - end it on a high note and not after it has jumped the shark.

    Loved the episode. Had a huge laugh even if the continuity errors bugged me. 1 as stated above he got a big smack on the lips from leonards mom and then also a season or 2 ago Sheldon said that in no universe does he ever dance.

      Totally forgot about the no dancing statement! Thanks for the addition/correction. It was in season three, "The Gothowitz Deviation". He said "Penny, while I subscribe to the Many Worlds Theory, which posits the existence of an infinite number of Sheldons in an infinite number of universes, I assure you that in none of them am I dancing,". This doesn't necessarily preclude him from knowing how to dance. It just implies that he doesn't like to, especially since the course he mentioned was something his parents made him take. Perhaps he's becoming slightly more open minded on some things since Amy has come into his life?

    Actually, as great as that episode was, they (the writers, Sheldon, and the author of this article) did make a factual error. Sheldon left out the kiss from Leonard's mom in the episode "The Maternal Congruence". Interestingly enough, she too, was drunk at the time. Also, and this is just my opinion, the "Quite possibly the funniest scene of the whole season." scene was in the season 4 opener. Near the end of the episode, Penny yells out from the audience at the conference asking if anyone can get her back to LA, and Bernadette's tall, dark, and heavily-implied well-indowed ex-boyfriend yells back that he's going to LA. Leonard, upon hearing this, jumps up and yells "Noooooooo!!!!!!". Just my opinion. 🙂

  28. Amy is the Hottest Priya is the Nottest

    Mayim Bialik proves once again that she has become even more cute now that she is all growed up!

      I never liked any of the girl cast besides Penny. But I hate Amy. If you think Amy is hot, you must be drunk and desperate.
