This article is the third installment in a three part article all about the relationship of Amy and Sheldon. 

Shamy Apart

In “The Matrimonial Momentum,” after watching Leonard and Penny finally tie the knot, Sheldon asks Amy outright if they are broken up. She tells him that he hasn’t given her enough space to think. He points out that her eggs have a sell-by date. Insulted and angry, Amy breaks up with him, calling him selfish and immature. She leaves the room and causes the gang to miss most of the wedding.

Sheldon is devastated and later calls his mother asking her what he should do with the engagement ring. Mary advises him to hold on to it in case he and Amy work things out, also adding that he’s the one who should have it since his sister’s married, and his brother is dating a “whore.”

Later on in the episode, “The Bachelor Party Corrosion,” Penny and Bernadette discover that she has not changed her Facebook relationship status to single and they tell her to call her mom to report about her and Sheldon’s breakup.

Shamy Reunites

Sheldon asks Amy to become his roommate, in “The 2003 Approximation,” to replace Leonard who moved in with his wife. She declines.

In “The Spock Resonance,” Sheldon was interviewed by Adam Nimoy about a documentary on Mr Spock. In the middle of the interview, he brings out the engagement ring he was about to give to Amy and surprises everyone. Sheldon afterwards is angry because Penny told him that he has emotions about being broken up with Amy and he denies it. Then, he decides to go to Amy’s to ask her to marry him. The episode closed with Amy kissing a date (guest-starring Stephen Merchant) which Sheldon witnesses.

Sheldon and Amy become friends again in “The Platonic Permutation,” and spend Thanksgiving at the aquarium. At the end of the trip, Amy asks Sheldon if she can be his girlfriend again, but he gently declines, telling her he excels at many things, but getting over her isn’t one of them, leaving Amy devastated.

In “The Earworm Reverberation,” Sheldon has a song stuck in his head which is driving him crazy. Amy decides to try another date with Dave. After Sheldon realizes the significance of the song (“Darlin” by the Beach Boys) and it’s connection to his feelings for Amy, he heads over to her apartment. Just as Amy and Dave are about to kiss, Sheldon interrupts. Amy excuses herself and Dave gets excited about meeting him. Amy answers the door and tells Sheldon that it’s not a good time. Sheldon doesn’t care and tells her about the song, that he can’t get her out of his head/heart and that he loves her. Amy tells him she loves him too. Dave excitedly tells them to kiss, which they do passionately. Dave excuses himself as he leaves and Shamy continues to kiss.

The Full Shamy

In “The Opening Night Excitation”, Sheldon decides to skip the premiere of the new Star Wars movie so he can be with Amy on her birthday. Amy learns from the girls that he is planning on being physical with her. She rushes off for a bikini wax. That night Sheldon meets her in her apartment with flowers. Amy isn’t very hungry and wants to get to her present first. She tells Sheldon that she knows what it is and Sheldon is fine that.

In her bedroom, Sheldon notices that Amy is visible shaking. She admits that although she’s wanted this for a long time, she’s nervous. Sheldon is also not sure what to expect and gently assures her that they’ll figure it out together. They lean in and share a tender kiss.

A few hours later, both are lying in bed naked with smiles on their faces. Both enjoyed the experience much more than they thought they would. Sheldon plans on doing it again on her birthday next year, which is fine with Amy. Shamy has now fulfilled their destiny.

“Good News, You’re An Asteroid.”

Raj and Sheldon eventually discover a medium size asteroid and Sheldon gets it named after Amy. She loves it.

After the historic Shamy coitus, Amy gets Sheldon a new laptop after his old one dies. Instead of bringing the old laptop to the computer store to get credit for it, Sheldon decides to keep it. When asked why, he has Amy take him to his storage unit, where she discovers the truth about his hoarding addiction. He then explains that he is unable to throw any of his old belongings away, and that he’s too ashamed of it to do something about it. However, Amy explains that she doesn’t think less of Sheldon after seeing this, and properly thanks him for admitting such a big secret to her.

With Amy’s help, Sheldon then throws out one of the things he’s been keeping: a golf ball his brother threw at his head (though he secretly slips the ball back in the storage unit). Afterwards, Sheldon skypes Amy using his new laptop, amazed at the resolution and graphics that come with it.


Of course, there are many more milestones and events in the overall history of Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler. Though these extras have been removed for time’s sake, it is clear to see that this couple is perfect for one another. I haven’t been this excited for a pairing since Joey and Pacey on Dawson’s Creek.
