Bernadette’s Fight With Amy Farrah Fowler
Amy Farrah Fowler and Bernadette are spending some time together in the most recent episode of The Big Bang Theory. Meanwhile, Penny does her best to cheer up Leonard, Sheldon, Raj, and Howard.
A 3-month pregnant Bernadette visits Amy Farrah Fowler at work and the duo talks about their careers. Essentially, Sheldon and Howard overshadow their accomplishments at work so they decide to “brag” to each other.
Unfortunately, things quickly turn sour for the ladies.
“You Should Be Able To Brag…”
“You’re a successful woman. You should be able to brag about your accomplishments once in a while,” said Bernadette. Amy confirms that they should both be able to brag as often as their men do.
Howard texts Amy whenever he levels up in WarCraft and Sheldon once called Amy to let her know he found three peanuts in one shell. “We should be able to do that, too,” said Bernadette.
The bragging starts small, but then gets personal. Essentially, the women are getting way more funding than their men.
Money, Integrity, And Hot Tea
Things first change when Bernadette reveals she has two assistants. Amy Farrah Fowler doesn’t have an assistant. “I guess that’s one of the benefits of being in the private sector—that and all the money I make,” said Bernadette.
“You’ve got that,” said Amy Farrah Fowler. “I’ve got my integrity. Hard to say which is better without making you feel bad.” From this point on, it’s a brawl between the two ladies who are sharing hot tea.
The battle is between the two types of research the ladies perform. Unfortunately the rest of the series focuses back on the boys so it’s unclear if the ladies settle their differences over tea.
More than likely, Bernadette is a little upset with her second pregnancy and perhaps Amy Farrah Fowler would like to make a little more money. Regardless, the two will likely realize that bragging to one another is not in their best interest.
