In “The Collaboration Contamination,” the cast of The Big Bang Theory proves they’re still just big kids. When Bernadette reveals that her newborn vomited on Leonard’s toy Ewok, it’s clear these guys will never grow up.
“See, he gets Ewoks in his bed,” said Sheldon to Amy, like a child. Based on this cold open, Leonard, Sheldon, Howard, and Raj are still just big kids. For those who are now married, they’ve essentially just married new mother-figures. For Raj, that includes Cinnamon, his dog.
“You’ve got Chewbacca, that’s enough,” said Amy.
TBBT Cast Tricks Sheldon Once More
Later in the episode, we get an even closer look at the childish man-boys. However, Sheldon spends most of this time merely complaining about Howard.
Penny, the ever-resourceful outsider to the group, uses a book on Parenting to realign Sheldon’s worries. Surprisingly it works. Later, Leonard gets in on the action and uses this reverse psychology to get Sheldon to get an Uber.
Eventually, though, Leonard reveals himself a better kid than a parent.
Sheldon Cooper’s Child-Like Dilemma
Towards the end of the episode, the cat comes out of the bag when Sheldon realizes that they’re using parent tricks on him. Upset, he confronts the two who are in a “mommy-daddy” argument about their child, Sheldon.
The duo is having a hard time figuring out the best way to baby the grown man. Leonard wants Sheldon to get over it while Penny wants Sheldon to express his emotions.
Leonard dives a little deeper and loses his love-making privileges with Penny. After this argument, Sheldon decides to head over to Bernadette’s house. There, he tries to connect with her over his new jealousy.
Bernadette tricks Sheldon into doing Howard’s chores since he’s working overtime. Again, this is a form of fooling Sheldon like a little boy. She uses a method from Tom Sawyer (the painted fence) to trick Sheldon into doing work for her.
Surprisingly, Sheldon never read the book, so he’s now upset with Mark Twain.
