Sheldon returns the favor as he cares for Penny when she dislocates her shoulder. In all of these instances, the story line ends with one of them singing "Soft Kitty," a song Sheldon's mother used to sing to him when he was sick. On the one hand, Sheldon and Penny spend a lot of time getting on each other's nerves: Sheldon often mentions how uneducated or untidy Penny is, while Penny likes to irritate him by sitting in his spot, messing with food, and they once started a futile war Penny blocked Sheldon from doing his laundry on his laundry day, and he responded by exposing her clothes and underwear outside the window.
Also when he asks Penny for something or uses her as an example, he ends up inadvertently insulting. However, they also efficiently team up, for example to plan Leonard's birthday Sheldon only participated when Penny blackmailed him into helping or to develop Penny's "Penny Blossoms" business, singing along to sailors songs to motivate each other.
They end up spending a lot of time together as two best friends to help each other and give each other advice Penny helping to find a suit for Sheldon for an awards ceremony, or seeking Stan Lee's address for him because he couldn't meet him as the other members of the group did; Sheldon teaching Penny physics to help her in her relationship with Leonard. On a few occasions, they also appear to share a sort of intimacy that Sheldon doesn't have with anyone else: they both take care of each other when they don't feel well; they stayed together in the flat, cranky and grumpy, as they had both caught the flu after a hug they had exchanged; Sheldon has an immediate, very nervous and alarmed reaction when he hears Penny calling for his help from her flat; they sing together "Soft Kitty" as a round in a kind intimate moment; Sheldon adds an amused "Bazinga" to one of Penny's jokes, to which she replies with a tender "Hmm Sheldon acknowledges Penny as one of his best friends along with Leonard and Raj , while he considers that Howard is a "treasured acquaintance," though he has known him a lot longer than Penny.
Also, when Penny and Leonard break up, Sheldon still considers Penny a friend and makes dinner plans, which he tries to hide when Howard informs him that it is inappropriate behavior and "bros come before ho's. In the end, Leonard and Penny in a way share custody of Sheldon, taking him to Disneyland and out to buy new shoes.
The interaction between Sheldon and Penny has been praised by critics. James Chamberlain of IGN wrote: "Cuoco and Parsons are great in their own right, but when put together, they truly shine. Club wrote that they "made such an inspired odd coupling that at times, it seemed as though the entire show were about them" and their chemistry "has some of the rattle and rhythm of the great comedic duos". In " The Intimacy Acceleration ", Penny and Sheldon conduct a psychological experiment which should result in the couple instantly falling in love.
Sheldon wants to do it because he thinks its poppycock, and Penny does it because she gets to ask Sheldon a lot of personal questions that he has to answer honestly. They admit a lot of truth about themselves like Penny wishes she were as smart as the others and that she uses comedy to cover up insecurities. Finally they stare into each others eyes for four minutes and decide that they do have a new found intimacy though just as a brother and sister.
In " The Celebration Experimentation ", Sheldon ran into the bathroom after overwhelmed by the birthday party they were throwing him. Penny went into talk to him claiming that it was okay if he wanted to be there. She would probably have tortured him along with his sister and friends at his birthday party, but now that she knows him, he is one of her favorite people. Penny would be happy to spend his party in the bathroom with him. Sheldon doesn't want people think that that is weird.
Penny explains that everyone things he is weird, but still loves him and came to his party anyway. Later at the party, Penny makes him hug her and he has upgraded his feeling toward hugs to mildly irritating. In " The Viewing Party Combustion ", Leonard get tired of the quarterly Roommate Agreement meetings where nothing important is ever discussed. Penny who has signed the latest on as an occupant of the apartment and wants to attend since she gets to lead them in the pledge. Leonard sulks about attending the meeting which makes Penny mad driving her and Sheldon over to her apartment breaking the group into two separate camps.
Penny often takes Sheldon's side due to her sibling feelings for him. In " The Bow Tie Asymmetry ", Penny organizes picking up the relatives and is overwhelmed by Amy's mother's comments and personality. When the wedding is delayed due to the absence of the bride and groom she explodes when she finds them doing science instead of getting married. Sheldon agrees with Penny so the wedding starts. Penny is overwhelmed at the ceremony of her two best friends getting married. Sheldon and Howard are best friends, but their relationship is extremely complicated. The relationship between the two has its ups and downs.
Sheldon in turn often makes fun of Howard for not having a Doctorate. In " The Parking Spot Escalation ", they fight after Howard acquired Sheldon's parking spot which Sheldon didn't need since he doesn't have a car. Their fight escalated and Amy and Bernadette go after each other, with Penny being injured. Finally Raj gets Howard to give up his space, but Sheldon, not wanting Howard to be the better man, lets Howard use it until he gets a car or a Batmobile. In " The Application Deterioration " Howard is not allowed to benefit from the profits of their mutually developed guidance system since he is not an employee of Caltech.
Leonard and Sheldon decide to split all their profits three ways and Sheldon even gives a portion of his share to Howard's unborn child's college fund. He doesn't want the kid to end up an engineer. In " The Explosion Implosion ", Howard is worried about knowing enough to raise a boy, but then realizes that they could bond over launching model rockets. Sheldon also gets excited about it and they take a Saturn V model out to the desert to launch. The model rocket blows up disappointing Howard until Sheldon tells Howard that he thinks that he'll be a great father especially since Howard lost his.
At Sheldon's wedding, Howard got Mark Hamill for the latter's wedding and Sheldon was grateful to him. In " The Imitation Perturbation ", on Halloween at work Howard dressed up as Sheldon, but Sheldon was clueless as to the impersonation. Bernadette is not happy with Amy's high squeaky voice and cracks about her small body. Later Sheldon does apologize to Bernie and the bond over both being small in high school. Sheldon was only eleven. In " The Meteorite Manifestation ", the Wolowitzes are having a problem with their neighbors new deck and the floodlights that light up their backyard.
Sheldon helps them with the paperwork at the city zoning office and makes their neighbors tear down their deck. They deny knowing who filed the paper work. Sheldon was not happy that he learned that they had made other home improvements without the proper paperwork. He decides to take friendship over the law for once.
Of the group, Bernadette is the most patient with Sheldon's quirks and personality and often knows how to handle him and they are best friends. This action is most likely due to her experience in dealing with stubborn children. For instance, in " The Einstein Approximation ", she is able to send Sheldon to bed with a few stern words, much to the surprise of the group. On another occasion, she was able to help him overcome his ornithophobia in " The Ornithophobia Diffusion ", by persuading him to stroke the bird he was scared of.
Finally, in " The Hawking Excitation ", when Howard was getting his own back on Sheldon by being mean to him, she argued that he was being mean himself and stated, "Sheldon doesn't know when he's being mean because the part of his brain that should know is getting a wedgie from the rest of his brain," before ordering him to stop with his actions, with the exception of using Sheldon to get out of having to go dress shopping with Mrs. Sheldon gets tired of it and turns off the music. She also takes him to the mall so Sheldon can buy a present to get revenge on Amy for kissing him in public.
The evil plan backfires and Amy loves it. Sheldon also shows a great affection for Amy and admits that he loves her impressing Bernadette. Later, in " The Fermentation Bifurcation ", when everyone else is at a wine tasting in Napa Valley, Bernadette who was still pregnant at the time spends the day with Sheldon, and ends up having a great time. Sheldon visits to complain to Bernadette and she tricks him into doing all the chores that Howard should be doing.
In " The Geology Methodology ", Bert asks Sheldon to collaborate with him on a dark matter project involving meteorites which Sheldon likes, but is embarrassed to tell others about. When Bert learns this he stops working with Sheldon and replaces him with Leonard. During this tournament, Sheldon utters in Klingon to Wheaton from across the room, "Revenge is a dish best served cold. Sheldon explains logically what cards must be in Wheaton's hand and how he is able to beat them. After Sheldon informs Wheaton why he hates him, Wil claims his grandma had died, knowing that Sheldon shares a special bond with his grandmother and would empathize with this plight.
Sheldon falls for the ruse and throws the game, only to learn shortly thereafter that he had lied, causing him to reaffirm Wheaton's status as his mortal enemy in a display of rage akin to Adm. During said game, Sheldon named his team "The Wesley Crushers". In this encounter, Wheaton also managed to cause Penny to break up with Leonard through deceit, by upsetting Penny who was on Sheldon's bowling team enough to make her leave the bowling alley, Wheaton's team would go on to win the bowling match over Sheldon's team, with the corresponding bet associated with the match the losing team would have to dress up in the costume choice of the winning team.
Wheaton appears again in " The Second Excitation " at a showing of the movie, " Raiders of the Lost Ark ," with 21 seconds of deleted footage. After Wheaton and his crew were allowed to cut in line by the security guard, Sheldon exclaimed with his impersonation of Patrick Stewart 's accent, "As Captain Jean-Luc Picard once said, the line must be drawn here When Sheldon, Leonard, Raj and Howard were eventually denied entrance to the theater, Sheldon stole the film cans containing the footage, resulting in an angry mob led by Wheaton chasing the four out of the theater".
Here, Wheaton gave Sheldon his last mint condition, autographed Wesley Crusher action figure. Data in Star Trek: Next Generation approached them, saying he "hadn't seen one of these Wesley Crusher Action Figures in ages," and proceeded to take the mint-condition-still-in-box action figure away from Sheldon. After tearing the packaging, Spiner became Sheldon's new archenemy. Unfortunately, Wil Wheaton ends up getting the role of Professor Proton on the reboot which upsets Sheldon and he tries to get the guys to call in displeasure in hopes of getting the reboot cancelled but it doesn't work.
Sheldon returns to Wil to demand that he turn down the role. Wil refuses and is on Sheldon's enemies list again. Indeed, her inability to understand social conventions seems if anything to be somewhat more extreme and has to have some social concepts explained to her by, of all people, Sheldon though his explanations typically reflect his own, at best, incomplete understanding.
It is therefore unsurprising that Sheldon and Beverly share an odd non-romantic attraction to each other. She apologized the following morning and Sheldon accepted as she was intoxicated he blamed Penny. Despite being equivalents, there are things that make Sheldon and Beverly different, like, for example: Unlike Beverly, Sheldon truly appreciates Leonard and is capable of love, which Beverly is severely lacking and almost nonexistent.
In " The Conjugal Conjecture ", Beverly actually snaps at Sheldon when he acts crazy after hearing that her ex-husband is probably hooking up with Sheldon's mother, her maternal rival and then Sheldon actually talks back to Beverly taking offense of her calling his mother a Bible thumping bumpkin, though he admits her analysis is correct. Robert Wolcott is a brilliant but reclusive topologist, noted for Wolcott's Theorem, who has made great strides in his work on nonlinear time while ignoring the rest of the world.
Sheldon Cooper has corresponded with him and is invited to his mountain cabin. The guys go with him at Amy's insistence. He lives off the land and ignores the world thus making great strides in his work. He recommends the life to Sheldon if Sheldon is really dedicated to science. Sheldon considers it, but he misses Amy and his cell phone which the paranoid doctor took from him.
Sheldon still has a grunge against him because he said he would move to California with him, but stayed in Texas. Tam didn't know that Sheldon was mad at him, but they made up just before Tam had to return to Texas. Of all the main characters of the show, Sheldon is presumed to be asexual and has displayed absolutely no interest in pursuing a sexual relationship with anyone. He tries to avoid all human physical and emotional contact. He has, however, had a few opportunities to "get it on" - maybe more opportunities than the other characters.
Being true to his personality, though, he never seems to realize it. However, the introduction of Amy Farrah Fowler into the show has changed this aspect of him, at least slightly. Even though Amy used to be a girl, who was his friend, but not his girlfriend, and now is his girlfriend, she is the closest person who may be romantically-linked to Sheldon. Though, their relationship used to be nothing more than that of friends, or, as Sheldon put it, "a relationship of the minds". Lalita was arranged to be married to Raj.
They went on a date together which gradually deteriorated as alcohol made him obnoxious. When Sheldon arrived at the bar, he thought she looked similar to an Indian fairy tale princess from a bedtime story his mother used to read to him when he was sick. When he told her, she was flattered and ended up dumping Raj and going out for dinner with Sheldon.
Expat dating: debunking the myths surrounding cultural stereotypes
When he was asked about it the next day, he simply said that they ate and discussed dental hygiene. He didn't seem to realize that he technically was on a date with her and when Leonard asked him if he was going to see her again he looked puzzled said "why would I see her again? Ramona was a huge admirer of Sheldon and had an obvious crush on him, which he didn't seem to notice. After that, she began spending more and more time with him, haunting the apartment night and day walking around like the T-X terminator from " Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines.
Eventually, he made a breakthrough. When she suggested they share credit, he simply responded "Get out! In " The Cooper-Nowitzki Theorem ," after the affair with Ramona Nowitzki , there is a brief incident in the Caltech cafeteria that appears to be the beginning of the same kind of relationship with a different grad student, Kathy O'Brian. Like before she is impressed with his work and want to talk with him. She agrees to bring over pizza to his apartment. She already has his address.
While Abby and Raj hit it off, Martha became interested in Sheldon. The two enjoyed a few stimulating discussions together at their second meeting, during which Raj and Abby, "were getting busy in the living room," Martha visited Sheldon's room in the middle of the night and asked to come in, hoping for sex. Misinterpreting this, Sheldon went to sleep in Leonard's room and left Martha alone in his room. Sheldon first met Amy via a dating site where Howard and Raj sneakily set up an account for him in the season 3 finale, " The Lunar Excitation ". When they told Sheldon, he refused to do it, believing dating sites to be "hokum".
However, he was blackmailed into doing it when Raj said he had hidden a dirty sock in his apartment and would not remove it unless Sheldon went on the date. When they arrived, Sheldon had doubts until he met Amy, who acted exactly like Sheldon.

She only agreed to come on the date as she and her mother have an agreement that Amy would date at least once a year. Sheldon had the same agreement with his mother about church; therefore, they bonded over their relationships with their mothers. Sheldon noted they had a lot in common and bought her a beverage of tepid water. Raj and Howard regretted what they had done, with Howard saying, "Good God, what have we done? In the season 4 premiere, " The Robotic Manipulation ," Sheldon reveals that he has been talking to Amy for four months online and via text messaging, after they first met.
Penny convinces Sheldon to go on a proper date with Amy first, before he actually decides to have a child. She eventually ends up on the date with them, as she had to drive them to the restaurant. While there, Penny tries to make conversation, but fails. After the subject of Sheldon's first date comes up, Sheldon calculates the number of men Penny would have dated.
He ends up with , with 31 sexual encounters. Amy then innocently asks if Penny feels like a "slut" and reveals that she has had sexual encounters if you include stimulation of the brain to induce orgasm. Eventually, Penny convinces Sheldon not to have a child with Amy by threatening to tell Sheldon's highly-religious mother — who would likely frown upon a test tube, surrogate, out-of-wedlock grandchild. In episode 3 of season 4, Amy and Sheldon break up for a period of time after an argument over whose field of science is superior. This results in Sheldon buying a clowder of cats, which worries Leonard.
So he calls Sheldon's mother, who is unusually surprised at what she sees with Sheldon. She then calls Amy and uses the technique of reverse psychology which Leonard instantly picks up on, but Sheldon is completely oblivious to. She tells Sheldon that it was a good thing he and Amy broke up because they are completely incompatible. In episode 5 of season 4, Amy requests Sheldon to meet her mother , who terrifies him and he tries many ways to avoid her, as he thinks she has fallen in love with him. Sheldon freaks out Amy's mother a bit, which is what Amy wanted him to be, when they tell her about their "fake" sex life.
Her relationship with Sheldon is complex; it began as a purely intellectual friendship which consisted solely of text messaging, but at some urging from Penny, develops into a platonic friendship with dynamics similar to a romantic relationship, although not sexually intimate. The next morning, a hung over Amy video-calls Sheldon, and he informs her of the kiss, and when Amy admits she is unsure where to go from there, they agree to pretend the entire events of the evening never occurred.
Later, she invites Leonard to a wedding, explaining that she'd invited Sheldon before, but he "acted like a child. However, when Leonard tells Sheldon about the night, the way he describes it makes it seem as though he and Amy had sex. Sheldon bops Leonard rather hard on the shoulder, and states very firmly that Amy is not Leonard's, leaving his friend totally confused. In " The Isolation Permutation ", Amy got depressed after Penny and Bernadette went bridesmaid dress shopping without her and Sheldon ended up comforting her.
First she asked for sex due to wanting physical intimacy and the couple made counter offers and settled with cuddling, something Sheldon was reluctant to do. A recurring topic for discussion among audience of the show is whether Amy may be the first person that Sheldon may have developed romantic feelings for, though he himself may not have realized it yet. It is clear that Amy is attracted to Sheldon, as witnessed in her many attempts to have some form of physical contact with him, such as kissing him while she was drunk, holding his hands and said that it was an experiment, and during the counter offers, she attempted to get Sheldon to agree to get into bed with her and French-kissing.
Amy had also, in a scene in Season 5's " The Pulled Groin Extrapolation ", told Leonard at a wedding that he has "a kinda-sorta-boyfriend playing with a model train and you don't hear me bitching about it", a clear reference to Sheldon. In " The Ornithophobia Diffusion ", when Sheldon finally overcame his fear of birds and appeared infatuated by the bird, to the point he called him his little "Lovey-dovey".
A slightly jealous Amy replied "guess you gotta have hollow bones to get some sugar around here". Sheldon, while his feelings for Amy remain ambiguous, clearly cares for her at least. In " The Isolation Permutation ", several events highlighted his care for Amy. When a devastated Amy wanted to be alone and did not respond to any form of communications Sheldon attempted to reach her, Sheldon grew worried and distracted, till Leonard suggested that they go over to her place to check up on her.
While getting ready to leave their apartment, Sheldon shared news that a bob cat was spotted near Amy's place and Leonard responded that he does not think that Amy has been eaten by a bob cat. A shocked Sheldon said that he was only sharing a piece of news and now, thanks to Leonard, he is worried whether Amy has indeed been eaten by a bob cat.
Later, at Amy's apartment, when she told Sheldon that she wanted to be left alone, Sheldon asked, rather awkwardly whether Amy would like to talk about what's troubling her, though he did add that he has no problem if Amy says no. Afterwards, when Amy counter offered with him regarding human intimacy and physical contact, Sheldon eventually agreed to cuddle with her.
When a drunk Amy called Sheldon as he was building his Lego Death Star, he and Leonard went to see her at the parking lot near the liquor store when she called Leonard "Lil' Leonard" and Sheldon "Cuddles", a term which earned a frown from Leonard. Sheldon quickly retorted with "Yes, Cuddles. We cuddled. Grow up Leonard! Later, when he went to the comic book store with Leonard to return Leonard's Wild West and Witches expansion pack and found that someone else has replaced Stuart since he is out for coffee with Amy, he started feeling jealous.
Leonard asked him whether he was okay, but his reassurance on the matter looked doubtful. At the university cafeteria, as the guys were discussing the Wild West and Witches deluxe set, Sheldon was checking Stuart's Facebook page, and the guys were surprised to see that he has actually friended Stuart. Raj suggested that he did so just to keep tabs on Stuart's date with Amy.
Leonard told him to acknowledge his feelings for Amy while Howard told him to challenge Stuart to a fight. Sheldon said that he could not care less about the date, but ended up unfriending all three of them. Later, he went to Penny's apartment and asked Penny out on a date, to signal that he did not care about Amy and Stuart. When Penny told him that he only wanted to do so to make Amy jealous, he denied and wondered why everyone else is obsessed with Amy and Stuart and added whether those two have more pumpkin lattes or will have intercourse, showing that he did keep himself updated with the details of their date s.
Penny told him to buck up and talk to Amy. Sheldon ended up interrupting Amy and Stuart's date at the movie by going into the movie they were watching and sitting next to Amy. When Amy asked what he was doing there, he covered up by saying that the thought of Amy sitting in a darkened theater with a character like Stuart is repellent. Amy apologized and influenced him to man up to his feelings by saying that their current relationship status allows her to e in any repellent situation she likes.
This was when Sheldon decided to propose an alteration to their relationship paradigm by saying he would no longer object if they characterize her as his girlfriend, but other than that nothing will change in terms of physical or otherwise. Amy pushed Sheldon to try saying that again without the negative, but he refused so she provoked him by sliding towards Stuart and saying hi to him, following which Sheldon relented and asked properly if Amy is willing to be his girlfriend.
She agreed and he left immediately. Later on, Sheldon waited inside Amy's apartment as she finishes her date. When Amy and Stuart was conversing outside her apartment, Sheldon told them to quickly wrap things up and when Amy and Stuart gave each other a friendly hug, Sheldon immediately retaliated by asking Stuart to take the hint that Amy has said goodnight. When Amy asked him how he entered her apartment, he complained whether she will keep nagging like this now that she is his girlfriend and introduced her to The Relationship Agreement.
Amy did not seem to like the agreement although she said it is romantic. Sheldon told her she could get herself a lawyer. Amy agreed to the agreement anyway. As of now, the two have officially become a couple. In " The Friendship Contraction ", Sheldon asked Amy to take him to the dentist after all of his other friends refused, and Leonard had signed the clause on The Roommate Agreement to reduce his and Sheldon's relationship to mere acquaintances.
However, Amy was busy with work and could not drive him. He tried to make her guilty by telling her that as his girlfriend, she had to cater to his needs, and even to the extent of asking her "where has the magic gone? In " The Vacation Solution ", Sheldon decided to work at Amy's laboratory with her for a week, after he was forced to undergo his mandatory vacation. Once there, he was appalled by the tasks Amy told him to do, which were menial given his standards, such as washing the beakers and counting spores.
Surprisingly, he could not accomplish any of the tasks right. Eventually, he confronted her on the matter. Amy reasoned that even if he was a genius, she could not assign him difficult tasks because he had no experience working in Biology. Sheldon retaliated by telling her that she was just afraid that he would be better than her. Annoyed, Amy let him slice the brain specimen she was working on. He ended up cutting his thumb and fainted at the sight of his own blood. After talking to Penny, Sheldon went back to apologize to Amy for his behavior, however, being Sheldon; he could not offer a sincere and direct apology.
Amy downright refused to accept anything, but a real apology so finally; he managed to mutter up a short "sorry". Amy accepted and told him to start washing the beakers again. In " The Werewolf Transformation ", Sheldon missed out on his regular haircut schedule, due to his regular barber being hospitalized. This event affected his daily routine because he could not get over not getting his haircut on time. When he was over at Amy's apartment, on their scheduled "girlfriend-boyfriend sing-a-long night", he could not concentrate.
Amy suggested he go to Supercuts , but he refused, equating Supercuts to "Sodom and Gomorrah with mousse". She then suggested he grew out his hair, because she thought he would look sexy with long hair. He refused to that as well. Later, Sheldon spiraled even more out of control by playing bongos at 3 a. The next day, when Leonard and Penny came over to pick him up, Amy revealed that she initially thought Sheldon's presence last night was a musical booty call.
Sheldon finally relented to have his hair cut by Penny, after Amy convinced him by saying that there was no hair on her body she would not let Penny trim. He began to have doubts on going after the guys told him that they would be having a hour Star Wars online gaming marathon, like in the old days. He tried to persuade Amy to let him stay instead, but she refused, saying that she followed all his protocols in The Relationship Agreement. Sheldon gave in, albeit unwillingly. The next day, when they were about to begin their journey, Amy discovered that Sheldon had brought along his laptop with him.
Sheldon told her that he had found a way to compromise, by being physically present at her aunt's party, but virtually present for the online gaming. Amy told him that it would make him appear rude since her family would want to talk to him. He told her that he will have his headset on so that he could not hear them in the first place.
Upset, Amy sarcastically told him that if gaming was more important to him than his commitments to her, he could stay. He did not get her meaning and opted to stay. Amy was later seen upset and having gone to the party alone. She confided in Penny and Penny persuaded her to make a scene. The girls later barged into Sheldon and Leonard's apartment, while they were still gaming. Amy told Sheldon that she was going to embarrass him in front of his friends.
She told him that she was leaving him for Arman, the miniature horse breeder. He asked her who Arman was, but she tripped up on her words and failed to continue the ruse. Penny helped by telling Sheldon he hurt her by backing out on his words. Sheldon finally understood her and offered her Cooper Coupons to make it up to her. In " The Launch Acceleration ", Sheldon came over to Amy's apartment for their scheduled monthly Date Night for a home-cooked dinner, despite his idea of a hot date is crossing the street and going to the Lego store to buy a tiny Indiana Jones Lego.
He found out that the reason Amy requested to have their Date Night at her place was to get their relationship moving forward, just like their friends'. He was reluctant because he thought that considering he has known her for two years and he was already at her place after dark, their relationship could not go any faster. However, Amy, having anticipated his response decided to achieve her goal by using her skills in neurobiology. She wanted to try to create his emotional attachment to her, just like his attachments to his.
Their Date Night was full of the things he likes, such as Super Mario Brothers' theme song as the background music, drinking strawberry Quik, and being served spaghetti with hot dogs cut up in it. Amy's plan seemed to be going well because Sheldon immediately responded with they should do it more often. After the night, it was shown that Sheldon had become distracted and he admitted to Leonard over their game of 3D chess that he was starting to develop affectionate feelings for Amy at inappropriate times, though not in a sexual way.
He also revealed that Amy took her campaign even further past their Date Night by arranging for him to become an Amtrak junior conductor, something extremely special since it was only open for kids. He even got to blow the whistle. In " The Countdown Reflection ", Amy told Bernadette that she thinks Sheldon's eidetic memory is sexy and proceeded to ask him to recite the ingredients in Pringles.
Later, at the City Hall while waiting for Howard and Bernadette to get married they did not however, manage to squeeze in for the day , Amy asked Sheldon whether being at there and witnessing a lot of couple in love makes him thinking, but he did not get what she meant and ended up exposing Leonard's failed proposal to Penny in the previous episode to all their friends. During the wedding ceremony, as Sheldon was addressing Howard and Bernadette, Amy looked displeased when Sheldon told them that he hopes they find happiness together as he has found being all by himself.
However, during Howard's launch into space, Sheldon did something completely contradictory to his statement, by grabbing Amy's hand as he said "Boldly go, Howard Wolowitz". In " The Parking Spot Escalation ", Amy backs up Sheldon in his fight for Howard's parking place, helping him put his name back on the space and leaving her car parked in it. After she finds it towed she confronts Bernadette and ends up smashing her "bestie", Penny, in her face breaking her nose. First Sheldon says that that is meant for her to take care of him and then leaves. Moments later Sheldon has a change of heart and tells her that they have a written agreement and that he cares about her well beings so he will take care of her though he wants to get through it quickly.
Later when he finds that her temperature hasn't gone down, he tells he that she isn't trying. Amy complains about his bed side manner and just wants to go to sleep. Sheldon says that that is not acceptable because he isn't through taking care of her. He has to put a rag on her forehead, sing to her probably Soft Kitty and rub Vicks vapor rub on her chest.
Sick Amy sits up surprised and wants to start with the Vicks with Sheldon not realizing the sexual aspects. Sheldon tells her that it may tingle and Amy replies that she is counting on that. A few days later Bernadette visits her and learns that Amy is feeling fine and is enjoying Sheldon taking care of her especially since he has started bathing her.
A couple of days later Sheldon has the results of a throat culture which says that she is no longer sick. Amy apologizes. Sheldon is disappointed because he thought their relationship was based on trust and mutual respect. He says that she needs to be punished so that that doesn't happen again. She thinks she should not be allowed to see the next Star Trek movie, but Sheldon feels that that is too harsh a punishment.
He prefers being put in the stocks in public, but doesn't think that he needs a permit for that. Instead he decides to give her a spanking which she enjoys. Also, Sheldon enjoys being held and consoled by Amy when he is very upset about Kripke. In " The Spoiler Alert Segmentation ", Leonard moves out and Amy tries to convince him that she would be his ideal new roommate.
She is familiar with all his habits and his personality quirks that others fine rave inducing, she thinks are cute as a button. Sheldon is uncomfortable with this much increased intimacy with Amy and also learns from Penny that she doesn't want Leonard to move in with her. Sheldon finally tells Amy that she can't move in and that it's Penny's fault. Amy confronts Penny who tells Sheldon why he didn't tell Amy that he didn't want her to move in instead of blaming it on her. Amy calls Sheldon a coward, which he agrees with and Amy goes off to live with Penny.

Sheldon responded by saying he didn't think that. Amy asked him if they would ever have an intimate relationship. Sheldon sat down and told her before he met her; he wasn't interested in being intimate with anyone. Amy prompted him to see if he felt any differently now, and he admitted it was a possibility. This didn't really cheer her up, so he explained to her that although it didn't feel like it to her; to him it did feel really intimate, Amy knew this, but said she just wished she could have more.
Sheldon managed to cheer her up, by pointing out that they had only known each other for three years and they were already in bed with each other technically sitting on Sheldon's bed. Amy said they should go back to the others, but Sheldon stopped her, and very calmly pointed out that as they had had love spell put on their characters in the game, it would only be right to carry it on.
And so alone in his room, away from all others, he allowed her to experience a form of virtual intimacy, using a dice to decide what to do next, upon getting a throw she didn't like he was willing to break the rules and throw again which for him is quite impressive , the two were still playing a while later, and had apparently progressed a long way when Leonard and Penny went to check on them.
In " The Deception Verification ", Amy and Sheldon conclude that Penny is cheating on Leonard, so Sheldon decides to rush into Penny's apartment and catch her with the other guy. Amy does not recommend this action. When he does, he finds Leonard secretly hiding out to be with Penny, making Sheldon mad at Leonard.
