After 10 years of Big Bang Theory there have been plenty of fan favorite episodes to choose from. In celebration of the series’ two season renewal, we’re revisiting some of our favorite plot lines, guest stars, and quotes. Do you remember this Big Bang Theory episode?
The Desperation Emanation
In this episode Sheldon prepares to meet Amy’s mother. It’s a great moment in the SHAmy relationship, and once again allows us to watch these two misfits grow in love. Plus, Leonard realizes he’s the only single one in the gang (kind of like Raj in the present season.)
The entire episode starts out with Leonard finding himself in multiple situations that point out just how single he is. Sheldon even has a girlfriend and he doesn’t. Back in season 4 Amy was still a fairly new addition to the show, and Leonard was still getting used to his roommate’s love interest.
Raj is dating Emily (the deaf one) and Howard is getting as serious as ever with Bernadette. Leonard can’t help but be sad. Apparently Stuart is even dating a woman who wears a plus size Wonder Woman outfit.
Leonard resorts to picking up women in the Apple store, by wearing an employee uniform and answering questions. In the mean time Amy asks Sheldon to meet her mother, and Sheldon can’t bare the idea.
Sheldon and Amy Moment
Amid the chaos of this episode, Sheldon and Amy still grow as people and as a couple. Both Sheldon and Amy had trouble expressing their feelings and emotions from the beginning. They both learn to be honest, when Sheldon explains he isn’t ready to be in a serious meeting-the-parents relationship, and Amy explains she simply wants her mother to get off her back.
They compromise by skyping Amy’s mother, and Sheldon lies about all of the “burning sex” they’re having. There’s nothing more Big Bang Theory than that.
