Woman problems for Sheldon on 'Big Bang Theory'

Oh, poor Sheldon Cooper. He really bit off more than he could chew when he befriended Amy Farrah Fowler.

As he described it on Thursday night's episode of "The Big Bang Theory," "Women. Delightfully mysterious or bat-crap crazy?"

It seems Amy was devastated when Bernadette invited Penny, and not her, to shop for wedding dresses. So, she retreated back to her apartment playing a mournful (but hilarious) rendition of "Everybody Hurts" on the harp (and Mayim Bialik confirms that is indeed her playing the harp).

When Sheldon came by her apartment since "e-mail, video chat, tweeting her, posting on her Facebook wall, [and] texting her" didn't work, Amy craved human contact. The two ended up negotiating down from doing the deed (Sheldon's not about to go there, as he's made clear before) to some cuddle time, (though Amy gave him the FYI that "I'm just saying, second base is right there").

By the way, it has been quite the week for awkward cuddling, between Ted and the slutty pumpkin on "HIMYM," and Nick and his one-night stand on "New Girl." Between the three, Sheldon and Amy were actually the least awkward, but the aftermath was what was most hilarious about it.

"The two of you need to get your women in line!" Sheldon exploded at Leonard and Howard, as they ate lunch in the university cafeteria.

After a pretty low point for Amy, with Leonard and Sheldon finding her drunk on a sidewalk (and yet another proposition from Amy to go along with that), Bernadette seemed to work things out by making Amy her maid of honor.

Of course, that still doesn't mean that dress shopping with her wasn't all kinds of awkward.

It was another Amy-fest this week, and if you know me, you know there's nothing wrong with that.

Did you agree this was another stellar showcase for Amy? Do you think she will ever "go there" with Sheldon? Share your view on iReport or post your comment.

    The only way Amy and Sheldon are doing the deed is if his Mother tells him to do it. So I don't see it happening......

    Don't have them hook up. Sheldon is unique, keep him that way. Get rid of Amy, can't stand Miaym Bialik, Priya can go too. Yeah Penny and Sheldon could be funny. Still want her with Leonard though.

    The episode last night was far too awkward, almost entirely because of Mayim's overacting when dealing with the girls. Fowler has been a consistently good character on the show, but last night she just went over the line into unjustifiably awkward crazy town and I didn't even enjoy the episode as a result. I agree that the Sheldon/Amy interaction didn't hit its proverbial "climax," but that was the only good thing about the entire episode.

    "Mayim Bialik deserves an Emmy nomination for last night's episode."

    Darn right!

    No, Sheldon and Amy absolutely must do it. Sheldon should find it pleasent but messy, and while satisfied with the experience, not something he feels the need to revisit. Amy should agree. ALthough Sarah S's suggestion is a good one–my favorite moments are Penny/Sheldon moments. They are wonderful together!

      Sheldon and Penny must end up together, they are absolutely great together! Penny understands him better than anyone. I agree with MGR that Sheldon and Amy should do it once, find it ok, but Sheldon should go to Penny in the end for understanding. I agree that my favorite moments are Penny/Sheldon moments. Penny and Leonard have already been together, and that would be BORING and an anticlimax to revisit!

    Agreed, I don't want Amy and Sheldon to get it on either. That's why it's so funny.

    Also, Mayim Bialik deserves an Emmy nomination for last night's episode.

    I absolutely LOVE Sheldon aka Jim Parsons...please don't have Amy and him "do the deed". I'd rather Penny and Sheldon have that experience together!!!

    I love that Sheldon referred to Penny and Bernadette as "your women" when talking to Leonard and Howard. He still supports Penny and Howard being together (write off Priya already).

    As for Amy and Sheldon "doing the deed", at this point the only way I see it happening is if Amy drugs him or gets him so smashed he loses all awareness of his surroundings.

    What ever happens .... please, please don't have Sheldon and Amy "do the deed". We love Sheldon for a reason. He is unique and quirky, and unlike any other character on television. That is the magic that draws me to the show. Getting involved with Amy would just create the same situations as those between Penny and Leonard, and Bernadette and Howard. There is already enough of the romance "merry go round" on the show. Sheldon is funny because of his unique views and reactions. He stands out for a reason. Please keep the magic going!

    I am really starting to miss Penny's interactions with the boys. Now into s5 the girls are rarely aroudn the guys and are usually segragated in penny's apt. Starting to feel less like big bang and more like friends for the neurotic
