3 Reasons Why Amy Proves To Be A Horrible House Guest


“I’ll be right with you. I just have to do my netty pott,” said Amy Farrah Fowler. In the latest episode of The Big Bang Theory, Sheldon kicked Amy out to focus on his work, but she quickly grossed out Penny and Leonard Hofstadter.

After inviting herself over to watch a movie with the Hofstadters, she leaned over the kitchen sink and started her netty pott. Essentially, this is a way to clear out your sinuses, but it’s on the gross scale between missing the toilet and leaving out dirty Q-Tips, so it’s certainly unwanted in the kitchen.

The gross factor isn’t the only reason why we wouldn’t want to invite Amy Farrah Fowler over to be a regular guest.

Amy Farrah Fowler Brings Her Work Home

A lot of workaholics bring their work home with them, but Amy Farrah Fowler takes it to a new level. “Is someone smoking?” asked Sheldon Cooper. At that point, she introduced her boyfriend to Ricky the smoking monkey.

“He’s one of the animals in my department’s nicotine addiction study. I’m giving him emphysema, the least I can do is let him hang out and watch cable,” said Amy as if it were normal to have a smoking monkey.

The netty pott is one thing, but a smoking monkey is too much.

Amy Farrah Fowler Is Just A Big Kid

Finally, Amy Farrah Fowler is just like a big kid. In the latest episode, she leaves her apartment and then comes over to do kiddy experiments with Leonard. Together, the two talk about their days as Spelling B Champs and Science Fair winners.

Many of Amy’s problems come back from her childhood. Since she didn’t have a lot of girlfriends (or a boyfriend) as a kid, she’s obsessed with Penny, Bernadette, and of course, Sheldon Cooper.

Once, when Sheldon wanted to win her own, he bought her a tiara. “Sheldon, you are the most shallow, self-centered person I have ever met. Do you really think that another transparently manipulated… Ohhhh it’s a tiara!” she screamed.

In the end, the key to Amy’s heart is satisfying that childhood version of herself.
