After Leonard and Penny showcased their relationship, TBBT premiere cut back to Sheldon and Amy Farrah Fowler. After a surprise proposal, the couple went out to celebrate with Amy’s colleagues. This, of course, led to a fight for Sheldon’s spotlight.

Amy Farrah Fowler was upset that Sheldon kept trying to hog the attention at dinner. Then, it was clear that Amy’s colleagues were obsessed with her work, but Sheldon kept referring the attention back to him.

This even led to Sheldon asking for advice from Stephen Hawking on the fight.

In the end, it took The Avengers to save Sheldon. Later that night, Sheldon came in to speak to Amy in her apartment. Amy Farrah Fowler turned to listen to her fiancé who then wanted to talk about the Marvel superheroes.

“I’ve been thinking about The Avengers,” said Sheldon with a straight face. “I believe that,” confirmed Amy Farrah Fowler. Sheldon then cleared up his intentions by relating their fight to the various Marvel films.

He realized that sometimes you need to be the co-star.

“I realized that Iron Man is great. Also, that Captain America is great. Sometimes Iron Man is in a Captain America movie. And he’s not mad it’s not an Iron Man movie. He can fly in, give the audience a thrill, and then fly away,” he said. “That should have been me tonight.”

This is a very interesting concept. As Sheldon Cooper starts to realize things about social behaviors, there’s often a good lesson for children wrapped within. This metaphor could almost relate to kids sharing toys or the spotlight at a party.

Sheldon Cooper often doesn’t understand social behaviors. Like Spock from Star Trek, his logistic state of mind doesn’t involve emotion. Instead, he does what seems to make the most logical sense.

In this scenario, it meant that Sheldon thought Amy’s colleagues should be more obsessed with his work. In reality, though, they’re not into physics like Sheldon. They’re more obsessed with Amy Farrah Fowler and her work.
