TBBT: Amy & Sheldon’s Biggest Romantic Moments, Ranked

Who would have thought that Dr. Sheldon Cooper would have gone on to marry a brilliant woman he met online? Funny enough, The Big Bang Theory fans have Raj and Howard to thank for this. If there's one person in the world of sitcoms who would be totally fine growing old without a partner, TBBT fans would suggest it's Sheldon Cooper. But after meeting Dr. Amy Farrah Fowler, their unique quirks and interests took ahold of one another. From seasons three to 12, we've seen Amy and Sheldon battle their differences and follow their hearts. These two were meant to be together; it just took years of baby steps and patience to get to a level both were comfortable with. From holding hands and sharing a bed, let's take a look at the couple's biggest relationship milestones.


In "The Locomotion Manipulation," Amy finds a way to have a romantic Valentine's Day that Sheldon would actually like. Together with Howard and Bernadette, the couples join for a double date on a vintage train with dinner, drinks, and conversation.

But leave it to Sheldon to mess things up and care more about the train than Amy. However, as the two come head-to-head about their desires for the night, they lean in for a passionate and steamy kiss. One that's so fiery that it left both of them speechless.


After the gang starts talking about their sad prom experiences back in high school, they decide to throw an adult prom for themselves on the rooftop of Sheldon, Leonard, and Penny's apartment building. Sheldon and Amy went together, of course, but tensions were high. With rumors of "getting it on" after prom swirling in the air, Sheldon got a panic attack. He wasn't ready for that step with Amy. Instead of engaging in the act of coitus, the two declared their love for each other instead.


Fans were furious when Dr. Ramona Nowitzki kissed Sheldon without his consent. She knew he was a taken man and very dedicated to Amy.

That didn't stop her though. After she kissed him, he excused himself from his office and flew to New Jersey (where Amy was placed for a study) and proposed to her. After kissing another woman, he knew he never wanted to kiss anyone but Amy again. Amy (and viewers) were proud of Sheldon for taking this step in their relationship; a step they were ready for.


After the two became engaged, the wedding planning began! The two adorably used science to plan most of their wedding, even though it didn't always work out (like who the ultimate maid of honor/best man was) in their favor. At the end of season 11, the pair had their wedding along with showing us Sheldon's potential for a new theory with string theory. Amy looked like a beautiful "swan" and Sheldon looked dashing in his tux. For this couple—besides seeing them win a Nobel Prize—seeing them get married was one of the highest moments in their relationship.


In "The Commitment Determination," the gang is shocked when Amy breaks up with Sheldon. After spending five years together, Amy had enough of Sheldon's lollygagging. He didn't appear to take their relationship seriously and cared about Star Wars than about their relationship.

Amy decided to go on a break from Sheldon but he suffocated her decision, making her end it all. Personally, it was because of this breakup that made them as strong as they were in the 12th season.


With water damage ruining Amy's apartment, she uses this time out of her space to create a new one with Sheldon. The two decided to run an experiment to see how well they could happily live together. Amy was enjoying her one-on-one time with Sheldon so much that she lied to him about the reality of her apartment. Her apartment was ready for weeks before Sheldon caught her in the lie. However, it proves that these two could happily and safely live together as a couple. A huge move for Shelly, since he wasn't in his own space and he had a new roommate!


Once Sheldon and Amy got back together, it was just in time for Amy's birthday. In a present to trump all presents, Sheldon decides to gift Amy his "genitals." Going all the way was a big deal for the pair as it was both of their first times (and the most physical they've ever been with one another).

The two took baby steps but by the end of their love-making, it was clear both were quite happy with how it went. Sheldon even joked (but it wasn't a joke...) that the next time they would make love would be in a year on her birthday again.


Sheldon and Amy have two of the most brilliant minds on the show. Together, they are even stronger. In "The Confirmation Polarization," it becomes clear that Amy and Sheldon have a high chance of winning a Nobel Prize. Later in "The Change Constant," Amy learns that she and Sheldon won the Nobel Prize and we see them happily accept their huge honor in front of their closest friends. Seeing each other shine in their respective fields was one of the most beautiful moments in their relationship.


After first meeting Sheldon, it's very clear that he has a close connection to both his mom and memaw. Mary Cooper is very understanding of how smart her son is and realizes that Amy Farrah Fowler may be his only real chance at happiness with another human being. But winning Sheldon's mom's heart wasn't the issue, it was winning his memaw's heart. Amy is the first girl to meet his memaw and was also the first girl to break up with Sheldon — something his memaw did not appreciate. The two eventually hashed it out and realized that they both just wanted what was best for Sheldon.


Around the time Bernadette was pregnant with Halley, Amy and Sheldon mixed their own DNA to create a superhuman in cell form. After realizing that their cells were high functioning, Sheldon had a "profound" sense of creation. He then wanted to make a baby with Amy immediately, in hopes of creating even smarter human beings. Procreating wasn't in the cards for this couple during their time on TBBT, so seeing their mixed DNA cells was the most we'll ever get from these two.

The Locomotive Manipulation

"The Locomotive Manipulation"is the fifteenth episode of the seventh seasonof the American sitcomThe Big Bang Theory. The episode first aired on Thursday, February 6, 2014.


For Valentine's Day, Amy plans a romantic weekend trip to Napa Valley on board a vintage train accompanied by Howard and Bernadette. Leonard and Penny opt to stay home, but have an accident while watching Cinnamon for Raj.

Extended Plot

Sitting on the couch in Sheldon's apartment, Amy and Sheldon are conducting the annual state of the relationship summit. Under item 28, Amy is not happy with Sheldon's pet name suggestions for her - Gollum and Flaky, or previous names including Princess Corncob and Fester (from The Addams Family). Item 29, is Valentine's Day where Amy is determined that both of them can enjoy her plan; going to a bed and breakfast in Napa Valley. Sheldon dislikes eating dinner with strangers, but Amy has arranged for the Wolowitzes to join them. He then worries about scandalous talk surrounding them sharing a room which Amy counters, having got them separate bedrooms. She has also arranged for them to travel on a vintage train which overjoys Sheldon, although he resists the sudden urge to hug her.

While everyone is having take-out dinner, Bernadette invites Leonard and Penny to join them. Penny is just planning a quiet evening at home, while Leonard jokes that he shouldn't take Penny to where wine comes from. Penny actually doesn't feel upset at his comment due to the wine buzz she is already feeling. Sheldon asks which pocket watch Howard will be bringing; however, Howard doesn't own one which Sheldon finds strange. Raj wants Leonard and Penny to watch Cinnamon since he will be in the telescope laboratory over Valentine's Day. Amy tries to be optimistic, claiming that looking at the stars is still kind-of romantic even though he doesn't have someone to share it with. Raj finds little comfort in this, focusing on the fact that he's alone.

Entering the dining car, Sheldon finds the place magnificent and thinks that this night will be the best Valentine's Day ever. He almost says that he loves it, but first wants to check to see if there are any hobos on the train.

In his apartment, Leonard gets off the telephone with Raj and then decides it's ridiculous to deliver Raj's soppy message to Cinnamon. Penny enters with flowers and candy for Leonard, while Leonard has surprise L.A. Lakers tickets for Penny. He tells her that she is obviously trying to get him out of his panties, while Penny can take someone to the game that would really enjoy it. They start to cuddle and Leonard suggests they slide over into Sheldon's Spot for intercourse. This doesn't strike Penny as sexy in any way, so instead they head to Leonard's room.

Back on the train, after their waiter describes the menu, Sheldon is more interested in the type of train coupling between the cars. A fellow dorky train enthusiast answers Sheldon's questions from the table next to them. He describes the coupler and the sound it makes, enthralling Sheldon. Amy looks unhappy and Howard concludes that if he hears any more train talk, he'll happily jump off the train.

A grinning Leonard returns to the living room with Penny to find that Cinnamon has eaten up the chocolates, which can be deadly to dogs. Penny wants to take her to a veterinarian, which surprisingly enough, is not among Leonard's long list of regular doctors.

In the dining car, Sheldon has joined his new friend while they both do various train impressions. Amy, listening to the train talk, mimes blowing her brains out to Howard and Bernadette. Sheldon's friend Eric repeatedly tells him that he had an accident at UPS and now just rides trains and collects disability. Bernadette gets Sheldon return to their table - but invites Eric to join them. Bernadette sighs that now they have “two of them”.

At the veterinarian's office they tell the female vet named Yvette that Cinnamon ate the whole box of chocolates. Leonard reminds Penny that she had already eaten most of them, to which Penny responds that she may have saved the dog's life; however, the vet rebukes her for making jokes since Cinnamon could be seriously ill. Raj runs in, incredibly concerned and angry. He tells the vet to scrap other dogs for parts, if that's what his dog needs. She asks if he is the owner and Raj adds father and soul mate. The vet doesn't think that Cinnamon is too unwell, so she takes her away to give her an IV. Raj tells her to sing Katy Perry to her if she gets too scared. The vet leaves telling herself that she should have been a dentist.

At the Valentine's Day dinner, the trainiacs are exchanging train trivia. Howard, Amy and even the waiter are getting tired of the Sheldon and Eric. Sheldon doesn't want their day to end and Amy agrees that she feels that it's going on forever. Eric and Sheldon head off to see the engine and meet the conductor.

Raj is still mad at Penny and Leonard for letting Cinnamon eat cheap chocolates, to which Penny sheepishly reminds him that they weren't cheap, they were free - which doesn't really improve the situation. The vet returns and assures Raj that Cinnamon is responding and will be fine. Raj wants to visit her since it is past their bedtime and reveals that they share a bed. Vet Yvette also shares with her dog and allows Raj to see Cinnamon, despite the rule that owners aren't supposed to be admitted to the kennel. She admits that she did sing Katy Perry to the dog while her and Raj exit the room, and the friendliness of their conversation prompts Penny think that there is romantic something going on between them.

Amy looks sad as Bernadette and Howard try to cheer her up. Bernadette advocates that Sheldon coming proves his feelings for Amy, revealing that she made a bet with Howard that Sheldon wouldn't come on the trip. Bernadette explains how Howard was a "hot goofy mess" until she changed him.

Penny is getting hungry because Raj and the vet have been gone for half an hour. As Penny and Leonard stand to head off to a Thai restaurant across the road, Raj and Yvette return with Cinnamon. Raj can now take the dog home, although the vet gives him a list of things to look out for and tells him to call if anything happens. Penny tries to reassure her that it was an accident and that she and Leonard love animals. The vet asks if they have one which Penny denies, which relieves Yvette (the vet).

On the train, Howard and Bernadette are kissing in front of Amy, and then apologize. Sheldon and Eric return, telling Amy that they missed a great time: the train conductor has the same pocket watch as Sheldon, and has offered to come back to the bed and breakfast to play his banjo for them. Amy stands up and asks everybody to leave. Howard and Bernadette discuss going to the car with a skylight where they can watch the stars and after an exclamation from Amy, leave to find it. Eric also leaves, and Amy complains to Sheldon that this night was supposed to be a romantic weekend. Sheldon counters that it was supposed to be something they both enjoyed. While she admits that she may have tricked him, she insists that she deserves romance. He gets angry and shouts that if she wants romance, fine, he'll give her romance. He grabs the wine and downs it, calling it grape juice that burns. Then he glares into Amy's eyes for a few seconds and then tells her that she blinked first. Then angrily says that kissing is romantic and then kisses Amy. At first he does it to prove a point, but then seems to enjoy it as he lingers for a while, stepping closer and putting his arms around her. Amy is stunned and when they break away, tells him quietly that his kiss was nice. Sheldon quietly replies “good,” and then mentions that the conductor was going to show him how they deal with a grade crossing. Still stunned Amy tells him that he can go, but Sheldon invites her to come with him. As they leave, Eric is following behind yelling at them to wait for him.

Raj is back at his apartment putting Cinnamon to bed. Reading the vet's list of symptoms, it actually says that she was dreading Valentine's Day and thanked him for spending it with her, including her phone number. Raj, overcome with joyful surprise, gleefully tells Cinnamon that he would have considered poisoning her months ago if he'd known this would happen. Picking up the phone, he decides he will start his call with the obvious observation the "Yvette rhymes with vet", while Cinnamon looks at him pityingly.

At apartment 4A, Sheldon returns after his weekend away. He tells Leonard that his trip was wonderful, having made a new friend that likes trains almost as much as him, kissed Amy on the lips and listened to the Conductor play his banjo. Leonard asked for more details, looking very surprised. Sheldon replies that his new friend's name is Eric, Amy's lips tasted like the Chocolate brownie they had for dessert and the conductor had a missing finger but made up for it with his can-do attitude. After being prompted to pick a favorite, Sheldon decides that he needs to collect additional data. Leonard's grin and remark, “you dog”, baffle Sheldon as he heads off wondering how listening to other nine fingered banjo players would make him a 'dog'.



  • Dhruv Rao of The DR Club gave the episode an A-, saying that Raj stole the limelight and that Sheldon and Amy's kiss was long-impending. [1]
  • Jesse Schedeen from IGN - Forget Halloween or Christmas, Valentine's Day is the most important holiday on The Big Bang Theory...And to my surprise, "The Locomotive Manipulation" went a lot farther than most fans would have predicted...The payoff is what really made the episode. Amy finally (and justly) called out Sheldon on his poor behavior, which launched him into a little tantrum and caused him to kiss Amy. What started as a mocking gesture clearly turned into something more pleasurable. Again, it was quite a shock, as the writers have kept the two characters dangling on that precipice for years now. Amy deserves this victory after everything she's had to put up with recently, and maybe we'll see a bit more humanity and tenderness creep into Sheldon's personality going forward. Maybe. [2]

Costume Notes


  • Sheldon and Amy's first kiss on Valentine's Day lasted 11 seconds.
  • Second episode filmed on a train heading to the San Francisco area, the first being in "The Terminator Decoupling" (S2E17).
  • The idea of taking a train to Napa Valley was previously suggested by Raj for Howard's bachelor Party in "The Stag Convergence" (S5E22).
  • The idea of the double date of Sheldon, Amy, Howard and Bernadette was previously suggested by Amy in "The Recombination Hypothesis" (S5E13) - although finally it turned out to only happen in Leonard's day dream.
  • Previously Leonard and Penny have intended to make out on Sheldon's spot in "The Pirate Solution" (S3E4), but that time they are interrupted by Howard.
  • Bernadette claim that Howard going to outer space because of her can be disputed to some extent. When Howard revealed he was going to space initially, Bernadette was completely against the idea and went as far as telling his mother to stop him leaving; however it can be argued that when Bernadette finally accepted him going into space, she even reset the wedding date to let him go early even though he was scared, thus meaning that her actions ultimately led to him going into space.
  • Sheldon prefers to take a train with a pocket watch because a real train Conductor always carries one. In this episode he is excited at finding the Conductor of that train carries a same pocket watch as his. Also, previously in "The Shiny Trinket Maneuver" (S5E12), Sheldon bought himself a pocket watch and commented "I look like a train Conductor" (with the pocket watch).
  • Alex Ball, the actor that portrays the waiter serving Sheldon, Amy, Howard and Bernadette on the train, appeared previously in "The Hofstadter Insufficiency" (S7E1) - interestingly, also as a waiter - he served Bernadette and Amy in the hotel that time.
  • Third time that Raj is spending all night in the telescope lab. He did this action previously in "The Boyfriend Complexity" (S4E9) and "Howard and Bernadette's Wedding is Leonard and Penny) in his friends to take care of Cinnamon: Howard and Bernadette were asked in "The Proton Resurgence" (S6E22). In both times the couple make a careless mistake in watching Cinnamon.
  • Penny seems to be unsatisfied about the short duration (9 minutes in this episode) of the sex between Leonard and her. This characteristic of Leonard was mentioned several times before: in "The White Asparagus Triangulation" (S2E9), Howard and Raj recalled the sex between Leonard and Leslie Winkle: according to Raj, she dubbed him "Speed of Light Leonard". In "The Bat Jar Conjecture" (S1E13), Leslie says to Leonard, "it’s not going to work if you rush me, you have to let me get there", to which Leonard replies, "you’re never going to let that go, are you?". In "The Precious Fragmentation" (S3E17), when Sheldon asked "Leonard, what do the two of you talk about after the coitus?", Howard taunted Leonard by replying "My guess is, 'Hey, four minutes! New record!'"; and in "The 21-Second Excitation" (S4E8), when talking about the break-up of Leonard and Penny, Howard said, "I'm guessing 21 seconds had something to do with that, too."
  • Second time Sheldon and Amy have had a conversation regarding sharing a room for their trip, the first time being in "The Love Car Displacement" (S4E13). Both times have resulted in rejection. The first time, Sheldon and Amy agreed that "we wouldn't want to jeopardize our relationship by getting to know each other too well", with Sheldon commenting "Nothing sours a good friendship more than knowing each other's toilet routine." This time, Sheldon was a little more concerned about cautiously approaching sexual intimacy in their relationship, all while Amy had gotten separate rooms for them both. However, whether or not the rejection in this episode may somehow change after the kiss is somewhat unclear.
  • Sheldon finally kisses Amy on his own initiative. Known by the fans as SIK - Sheldon Initiated Kiss.
  • Cinnamon's vet Yvette gives Raj her phone number and tells him that he made her Valentine's Day. Unfortunately she is never seen again.
  • When quizzed by Leonard, Sheldon himself does not seem to be aware of the significance of his kiss in his relationship with Amy; analogous to what happened to him in "The Grasshopper Experiment" (S1E8): in that episode he talked with Lalita Gupta with pleasing words, and then the two had dinner together. While everyone else was thinking he was hitting on her, Sheldon himself was not aware of it. However, in this episode, when he kissed Amy, he seemed to be aware of the kiss, yet doesn't exactly want to talk about it fully yet.
  • It is strange that Sheldon totally cannot understand Leonard's "you dog" at the end of this episode, because previously in "The Herb Garden Germination" (S4E20) Leonard has used exactly the same phrase on Sheldon when talking about the rumor made up by Sheldon and Amy that they had sex, and that time Sheldon seemed to be able to associate the "you dog" phrase with their sex rumor. It is possible that in this episode, he seemed to understand Leonard's comments with both his new friend and his steps in his relationship with Amy, but in a weird way, attempted to associate the banjo player's music with the term as well.
  • In the final scene, Sheldon states that "Amy's lips tasted like the brownies we had for dessert". This comment may be a production mistake, because Amy, Howard and Bernadette are seeing eating a pie for dessert while Sheldon is away with Eric. There is no other scene showing a dessert, so it must be assumed that no other dessert was served. Ergo Amy's lips should have tasted like pie.
    • This scene was filmed one week after the actual episode was taped; during the taping of the previous episode, "The Convention Conundrum", which actually aired the week before this episode aired. Potentially explaining the slight continuity error is the fact that the scene could have been written so quickly and filmed at the last minute to replace the original tag scene.


(The dining car scene of Amy having a bit of a game with Howard and Bernadette)
Amy: See if you guys can guess this one. Bang! Splat! Thud!

(The scene of Howard in the dining car saying a joke to Bernadette)
Howard: Fun fact, I'm gonna jump off this train.

Penny: Happy Valentine’s Day.
Leonard: Flowers and chocolates? You trying to get me out of my panties?
Penny: Don’t be surprised if you find five chocolates missing and three gross coconut ones with a bite taken out. Came that way when I bought it.
Leonard: I got you a little something too.
Penny: Oh my. Jewelry. Oh, my God. Lakers’ tickets!
Leonard: It gets better. Instead of me, you can take someone who will actually enjoy it.
Penny: Aww! You are the best boyfriend ever!
Leonard: Thank you, seriously, please don't make me go.

(The dining car scene where Amy tells Sheldon off for ignoring her after Eric has left).
Sheldon: What is your problem?
Amy: It’s Valentine’s Day! We’re supposed to be having a romantic weekend.
Sheldon: Oh really? Because I remember you saying that trip was going to be something we could both enjoy. Did you really mean that, or were you just trying to trick me?
Amy: Fine, it’s true. I deserve romance and...I didn't know how else to make it happen.
Sheldon: Well, if you want romance, let’s have romance. Oh, look, there’s wine. (take Amy's wine glass and drink) Grape juice that burns. Um, now let’s gaze into each other’s eyes. (looks at Amy's eyes in a childish way) You blinked, I win.
Amy: Sheldon.
Sheldon: What’s next? Oh, kissing’s romantic.
(Sheldon kisses Amy for 12 seconds, first time ever in the whole series. Amy seems to enjoy it).
Amy: That was nice.
Sheldon: Good. Um. The Conductor said if I come back to the engine room, he’d show me how to bring the train through a crossing.
Amy: O.K, have fun.
Sheldon: Do you want to come with me?
Amy: Really? I do.

Amy: Item 28 your pet name for me. Time’s running out on this. You need to make decision.
Sheldon: I submitted you a notarized list.
Amy: I sorry, but Gollum and Flaky are not acceptable.
Sheldon: Well, you don’t like Princess Corncob. You don’t like Fester. You’re just impossible to please.

Amy: I propose we spend a weekend at a bed-and-breakfast in Napa Valley.
Sheldon: I hate every word in that sentence. Including in, at, we and a.
Amy: Come on, Sheldon. Why not?
Sheldon: For starters, a bed-and-breakfast forces you to eat with strangers at your table.
Amy: One step ahead of you, Bernadette and Wolowitz are going with us.
Sheldon: Oh, very well. What are the sleeping arrangements? We’ve only been dating for three years. If we were to share a room, people might talk.

(The scene at the gang's apartment dinner where Bernadette pours herself some wine furiously)
Bernadette: You sure you guys don’t want to come with us to Napa. You can probably still get a room.
Penny: No. I think we’ll just have a quiet weekend at home.
Leonard: Of course I’m not sure it’s a great idea to take Penny where wine comes from.
(Penny looks offended by Leonard's comment)
Leonard: What? It’s a joke. Oh, come on. We bust on each other. I wear dorky glasses and you might have a problem. It’s all for laughs.
Penny: That would really piss me off if I didn't have a buzz going on.

Raj: Since you two are gonna be around for Valentine’s, would you mind watching Cinnamon?
Penny: You have Valentine’s plans? Which came out sounding way more surprised than I meant. Here, let me try that again. You have Valent… See? I can’t do it.
Raj: I don’t have plans which is why I booked time on the big telescope that night.
Amy: Well, an evening looking at the stars, that’s still kind of romantic.
Raj: Except I’ll be alone.
Amy: I’m trying to put lipstick on a pig here. Work with me.
Leonard: We’d be happy to watch Cinnamon.
Penny: Yeah.

(The scene at the gang's apartment dinner after Raj has thanked Penny and Leonard for watching Cinnamon)
Raj: Oh and I’d like for at least one of us to see some action so if you guys happen to have sex is it cool if she stays in the room?
Penny: The same goes with the two of you with Amy.
(Bernadette and Howard are rather disturbed by Penny's idea, Amy happily sips her wine and Sheldon just gazes around the room)

(The scene of the 'Howardette' couple and 'Shamy' duo entering the dinging car)
Amy: What do you think, Sheldon?
Sheldon: It’s magnificent. This is going to be the best Valentine’s Day ever.
Amy: I’m so glad you like it.
Sheldon: I’m prepared to say I love it, as soon as I confirm there are no hobos aboard.

Penny: Should we take this little party to the bedroom?
Leonard: We don’t have to. We have the whole place to ourselves.
Penny: Oh that’s true.
Leonard: In fact, if you want we can do it right here on Sheldon’s spot.
Penny: That is the least sexy thing anyone’s ever said to me.
Leonard: To the bedroom!

(The dining car scene where Amy complains to Howard and Bernadette for a second after listening to Eric and Sheldon's conversation about trains and stuff)
Amy: Why do I even try?
Bernadette: (starts to stand up) I’m going to fix this right now.
Howard: OK. Just make it look like an accident
(Bernadette storms up to Sheldon's and Eric's table)
Bernadette: Excuse me. You're at a Valentine’s dinner with your girlfriend. Now get back over there and be with her.
Sheldon:(feels guilty) You’re right. That was insensitive of me. I have to go back to my table now. You should join us.
Eric: All right.
(Both Eric and Sheldon make for Amy and Howard's table)
Bernadette: Great. (sighs angrily) Now there’s two of them.
(She walks out of view and the scene fades to black).

(The scene at the ward of the vet surgery where a female vet is rubbing Cinnamon's fur)
Vet: (asking Penny) How much chocolate did she eat?
Penny: (telling the vet sadly) A whole box.
Leonard: Well, to be fair, you ate a lot of it before you gave it to me.
Penny: So the point is I may have saved her life.
Vet: I’m sorry, is this a joke to you?
Leonard: No. Maybe to her.
(Penny sadly shakes her head)
Vet: How big a box of chocolate was it?
Penny: Uh, something like this. I don’t know. It came free with a full tank of gas.
Leonard: Really? Do you know how much those Lakers tickets were?
Penny: Do you know how much gas is?
Vet: Hey.
Penny: Sorry.
Leonard: Sorry.
(The ward door bursts open by a completely furious Raj who runs up to the sick Cinnamon)
Raj: (he worries about Cinnamon) Oh, my God, Cinnamon, are you okay?! (angrily shouts at Penny and Leonard) I can’t believe you two! (to the vet) You do whatever it takes to save her life. If she needs new organs, I’ll buy any dog necessary and scrap them for parts!
Vet: You’re the owner?
Raj: Owner, father, soul mate, and if anything happens to her, (to Leonard and Penny, seething with fury) your worst nightmare!
Vet: Well, she’s not throwing up, which is a good sign. So, I’m gonna take her in back, put her on fluids and give her something to absorb the toxins.
Raj: Okay. Okay, thank you. Oh, if she’s scared, you can sing to her. She likes Katy Perry. Oh, but don’t do "Firework", that gets her all riled up.
Vet: Got it. (grumbles to herself in the corridor) Should have been a dentist.

Leonard: Hey, Cinnamon, guess who just did it human style?
Penny: (looks to Cinnamon, who is in Sheldon's spot) Oh, my God.
Leonard: It’s a little late, but I’ll take it.
Penny: (panicking) No, Cinnamon ate the chocolates. That’s really bad for dogs.
Leonard: (now concerned) Oh, crap. What are we gonna do?
Penny: We gotta get her to a vet right now.
Leonard: I don’t have a vet. I have a podiatrist, an optometrist, an allergist, a dermatologist, a urologist. You’d think I’d have a vet.
Penny: Okay. There’s one not far from here. Come on. Let’s go.
Leonard: Okay. Koothrappali was right. We should have let her watch.

Leonard:(on phone) Okay. Raj, I got it. Bye. (To Cinnamon) That was your daddy. He wanted me to say that he misses… Why am I doing this?

Howard: A world I don’t want to live in. Seriously, I no longer want to live in this world.

Sheldon: I never want this day to end.
Amy: (feigning excitement) I'm feeling like it never will.
Sheldon: Come on.

(The dining car where Amy has seen Sheldon gone off into thin air. She now turns to Howard and Bernadette)
Howard:(concerned for Amy) You okay?
Amy: Why? Because my boyfriend’s off playing choo-choo with some weirdo?
Howard: Well, to be fair, they’re both weirdos.
Amy: I don’t know what made me think tonight would be any different.
Bernadette: Well, just the fact that you got him up here still says a lot. To be honest, I bet Howie 200 bucks it wasn’t gonna happen.
Howard: I’m going to the Lego store to get a big-ass R2-D2.
Bernadette: See? It’s not just Sheldon. They’re all idiots.
(Amy pulls a frown at Bernadette's remark)
Howard: She’s right.
Bernadette: So, your boyfriend’s a fixer-upper. Most of them are. I mean, look at this guy. You think he came like this? When I met him, he was a hot, goofy mess. Now, he’s been to space. That’s all me.
Howard: I had a little to do with it.
Bernadette: Oh, sure you did. (imitates smooching to Howard) Who’s Mama’s big space man?
Howard:(giggles) I am.
(Bernadette continues smooching Howard and smiles crossly about Sheldon's behavior).

Howard: Sorry.
Bernadette: Sorry.

Eric: You guys missed a pretty great time.
Sheldon: The conductor and I have the same pocket watch.
(Amy, Howard and Bernadette are so not happy by the pocket watch Sheldon has showed them)
Eric: It was crazy.
Sheldon: Dare I say loco? Oh, and, Amy, guess what? The conductor said as soon as he gets off work, he can come back to the bed and breakfast and play his banjo for us.
Amy: Okay. I need to speak to my boyfriend in private, like, right now.
Howard: There’s a car with a glass roof. Want to go look at the stars?
Bernadette: Oh, that sounds so romantic.
Amy:(yells to them with loud anger) Oh, give it a rest.
Bernadette:(shiftily) Let’s go.
(Both Howard and Bernadette exit the table)
Amy: (she is furious with Eric) Why are you still here?
Sheldon: Excuse me. (referring to Eric) I think you’re being a little rude.
Amy: (now fully furious with Sheldon) I’m being rude? You’ve been rude to me this entire evening.
Sheldon: How is that possible? I’ve hardly spoken to you since we got on the train.
Eric: I’m detecting a little friction between you two, and I don’t want to be a third rail. Get it?
Sheldon: I get it.
Amy:(yells at Eric angrily) Leave.
(Eric now exits)

The Big Bang Theory followed Sheldon Cooper (Jim Parsons) and his close, science-loving friends as they navigated life as young adults. And with that came romance, specifically with Amy Fowler (Mayim Bialik), despite that Sheldon wasn’t exactly the romantic type.

Still, fans finally got to see Sheldon and Amy’s “romantic” Valentine’s Day kiss while on a train in season 7 — but the moment that brought the two closer on screen was far from romantic in real life.

Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Amy (Mayim Bialik)

Sheldon and Amy’s romance was a long time coming

Sheldon and Amy first met on an online dating site, after Sheldon’s friends signed him up for the site without his permission. Still, Sheldon wasn’t exactly smooth with the ladies, and he never truly considered Amy his girlfriend. She somewhat considered the two to be dating, but there was a lot of confusion surrounding Sheldon’s real feelings for Amy throughout the show.

It wasn’t until season 5 that Sheldon and Amy officially began dating, despite that hints were there all along. Still, the couple’s relationship moved slowly. They didn’t actually say “I love you” until season 8, and the moves they made prior to that were hardly indicative of a relationship. However, they did discuss moving in together prior to telling each other they were in love. Their love lasted the duration of the show, and the two were married in the season 11 finale.

The couple’s first real kiss wasn’t nearly as romantic off screen

Sheldon and Amy technically kissed once in season 3, but the two were not officially in a relationship at the time. In season 7, though, Sheldon and Amy shared their first real, romantic kiss, despite that it was somewhat out of anger. The two were on a train together on Valentine’s Day when Amy finally became fed up with Sheldon’s lack of romance.

Out of frustration, he sarcastically started doing romantic things for her, which led to the kiss — one they both obviously enjoyed. Though it was awkward, there was a romantic air to it, as the two hadn’t kissed throughout the show. But in real life, things were totally different.

Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik discussed the kiss off-screen, and it turns out Parsons had the flu. “You kept swishing around with Listerine or whatever to kill my germs,” Parsons recalled of Bialik’s response, according to USA Today.

“Hydrogen peroxide,” Bialik confirms. “You were sweating. You had a fever. You were very sick.” Parsons then adds that he “would not have kissed” Bialik if he didn’t have to because he was so sick.

Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik have reconnected for a new show

Parsons and Bialik have remained close friends since The Big Bang Theory ended back in 2019. Now, the two are working on a new show together: Call Me Kat. Bialik stars as Kat, a 39-year-old single woman who tries to prove to the world that she can be happy alone.

Jim Parsons is working as a producer on the show, and he’s the one who pitched Bialik the idea. Bialik told Good Day New York that she and Parsons were delayed on production because of the pandemic, but the show’s first episode premiered on Fox on Jan. 3.

Sheldon and Amyor "Shamy" ["ShAmy"] first met when an online dating site paired them up as the perfect match for each other (courtesy of Howard Wolowitzand Rajesh Koothrappali, who secretly registered Sheldon on a dating site). Although she considered him to be her "kinda-sorta-boyfriend", Sheldon only considered Amy his friend ("She's a girl and she's my friend, but she's not my girlfriend"). Despite their platonic closeness, there had been hints that there might be something deeper between them. There were instances where Amy showed her attraction for Sheldon and there were instances where Sheldon, despite his denial, showed his jealousy at other men's interest in Amy or would go against his personality quirks to please her. They finally became official "boyfriend/girlfriend" during"The Flaming Spittoon Acquisition". Three years later they professed their love for each other. Howard first dubbed them as "Shamy". Amy more than once by season 7suggested that they could move in together. After one such request, Sheldon even admitted to Stuartthat Amy loves him. In season 8they have admitted that they love each other and were planning a future together until Sheldon burned Amy out and she broke up with him. They reconciled in "The Earworm Reverberation" and consummated their relationship in "The Opening Night Excitation" the next month. Sheldon's intention to propose is revealed to Leonard and Penny in "The Commitment Determination", though Amy finds out later on in "The Meemaw Materialization". In "The Cohabitation Experimentation", Sheldon and Amy first try an experiment in living together in Penny's old apartmentand then decide to move in together permanently. They start working together in "The Collaboration Fluctuation". In "The Gyroscopic Collapse", Amy accepts an offer to go to Princeton Universityfor a summer job, leaving Sheldon alone. In "The Long Distance Dissonance", Sheldon drops everything and runs off to Princeton and proposes to her after Sheldon's old crush Ramona Nowitzkimakes a play for him. They got engaged in the Season 11premiere episode "The Proposal Proposal" and begin planning their wedding. Sheldon and Amy were married in the season 11 finale, "The Bow Tie Asymmetry".

A Friend Who Is a Girl, But Not His Girlfriend

Sheldon met Amy, when Howard Wolowitz and Rajesh Koothrappali entered him on an online dating site in "The Lunar Excitation" and found his match, Amy Farrah Fowler. The guys told him and when he refused to go on the date, Raj blackmailed him with a hypothetical dirty sock. When they did meet in a café, Sheldon, who came there with the sole purpose of rejecting the girl he was matched with, was taken by surprise upon meeting Amy, when she acted so similar to him. Amy told him that she only went on dates to fulfill her promise to her mother that she would go on at least one date a year. Sheldon was also impressed when Amy told him that all forms of physical contact are prohibited and offered to buy her a beverage. As Sheldon stands at the counter, Amy looks away with a satisfied crooked smile on her face.

This point is seen as the starting point of their friendship as in the beginning of Season 4, it was revealed that they had been communicating with each other on a daily basis for the past four months since they first met, though they kept it to texting and e-mailing. It was revealed that Amy is a neurobiologist. Sheldon told a curious Penny that he and Amy are simply friends who enjoy talking about their work and science, and revealed that they are planning to procreate, albeit through clinical methods, to gift humanity with their progeny. Penny convinced the pair to start hanging out in person, and eventually go on a date. Sheldon and Amy get to know each other more and seemed to enjoy the date, as the main topic of discussion became about Penny's sexual partners. He told Penny he thought the date was a good idea since he had definitely seen a whole new side of Amy. The pair did not continue their plan to have a baby when Penny threatened to tell on Sheldon's plan to have a test tube baby out of wedlock to his religious mother; however, they did have an upgrade on the way they communicate. They began chatting on their webcams, and Sheldon started letting Amy come with them to The Cheesecake Factory and have lunch at Caltech's cafeteria. In return, Sheldon also visited Amy at her workplace and even went with Amy when she had to make a quick stop for feminine hygiene supplies.

In the episode "The Zazzy Substitution", Sheldon and Amy had a fight over whose field was more important which led to them terminating their relationship. Sheldon appeared to take this change well at first, but quickly adopted 25 cats to try and replace Amy, though he did not realize it himself. A worried Leonard called Sheldon's mother, Mary Cooper, who got them back together through reverse psychology. Sheldon proposed to Amy that they continue their friendship and attempt to resolve their differences. Amy agreed, but only if Sheldon accepted 80% of the fault, he said he would go as high as 40% only. Amy countered him 65% and he agreed immediately. Sheldon remarked that they would get back together despite the disapproval of her mother. Amy replied that she found being cast in the role of "bad girl" oddly titillating. He showed her all his cats, and discovered that they both mutually like cats before eventually giving all of them away.

Later on, in "The Desperation Emanation", Amy asked Sheldon to meet her mother. After consulting with Leonard Hofstadter on the meaning behind her request, Sheldon thought that Amy wanted to take their relationship to the next level, which panicked him and he changed his e-mail address, phone number, mobile number, and address. Amy, however; still managed to find him and sensing that he had misunderstood her initial request, set the record straight by telling him she only wanted him to pretend to be her boyfriend in front of her mother so that her mother would no longer pester her on that matter. Sheldon felt relieved at the fact that Amy had not fallen hopelessly in love with him which Amy thought was an absurd idea.

In "The Alien Parasite Hypothesis", Amy was hanging out with Penny and Bernadette when Zack, Penny's ex-boyfriend entered. Penny introduced him to the girls, but Amy found herself responding strangely to Zack's presence, with an involuntary "hoo" sound. A clueless Amy had no idea that she was experiencing sexual arousal and when she started collecting information on her bodily functions to find out the cause of it, she got Sheldon interested too. Together, the two tried to list down the possible causes of the symptoms Amy were having and when he mentioned sexual arousal, Amy finally knew. Sheldon however, appeared disturbed and refused to believe that as the cause. He was convinced it was something else such as Amy was going through menopause or had picked up an alien parasite. Amy confronted him on whether his denial was caused by his jealousy. He got upset and left Amy's workplace without answering her, mistakenly taking the cadaver brain specimen Amy was slicing instead of his sashimi along the way. He decided that since Amy has become a slave to her baser urges, they cannot be friends anymore, but Penny convinced him to help Amy with her urges. He agreed and arranged for Amy to meet Zack, but Zack's lack of intelligence turned her off. While walking home, Amy held Sheldon's hand and during the process, Sheldon did hold her hand back then let go after a second asking what she was doing and she explained it was an experiment then grabbed it again. Then, uncharacteristically, he did not pull his hand away and he let his hand be held.

In the episode "The Agreement Dissection", Sheldon joined Bernadette, Penny, and Amy for their girls' night out, after Priya effectively nullified his Roommate Agreement with Leonard and tried to make him eat Greek food, which he despises, on pizza night. During the outing, Sheldon expresses his disappointment that Amy has recently been drinking and smoking cigars, stating that not a lot of scientific discoveries were made by people having a good time. Tipsy Amy calls Sheldon "a sexy toddler" because he smells like baby powder to which Sheldon replies "I don't know how to process that." Bernadette starts to tease Sheldon that he should process it by kissing Amy. This question leads to Penny questioning "Sheldon, have you ever kissed a girl?" he reveals that he hasn't with the exception of his mother, grandma, sister and an elderly nun he had to resuscitate who had passed out from heat exhaustion. When questioned if he was curious, Amy said "I'm available for experimentation" and puckered her lips in expectation. Sheldon responded by politely declining her invitation and explaining that scientists already know everything there is to know about kissing, that it takes thirty-six different facial muscles. Amy replies "blah blah blah" and kisses Penny instead. 

As the night progresses, Penny decides they need to take Sheldon dancing, Sheldon reveals himself to be an excellent dancer proficient in the Rumba, Waltz, and Cha Cha which surprises Amy. Sheldon responds, "I don't see why that's surprising, I excel that so many things. You've had my sour-dough bread." Later he is seen dancing with Amy in a usual fashion, but not with Penny or Bernadette. At the end of the night, Sheldon escorts Amy back to her apartment as she is drunk. Amy invites Sheldon in for a Yoo-Hoo and he obliged, stating that no one can say no to Yoo-Hoo. Upon entering, he noticed that Amy had a smoking monkey living in her apartment. She told him that the monkey's name is Ricky, and is part of her work on nicotine-addiction study. Amy explained that since she is giving the monkey emphysema, the least she could do is let him watch cable. Sheldon was impressed. They moved on to discussing his problems with Priya, and even in a drunken state, Amy gave Sheldon a good piece of advice, which was to not back down and to play dirty. Now that Sheldon had a solution to his problem with Priya, Amy states that it's time to move on their next order of business. She proceeds by leaning forward on the couch and kissing him.

He responded with "fascinating" (One of Spock's favorite expressions) while Amy states "I hope you don't take what I'm about to do as a comment on what we just did," then she stands up, straightens her skirt and walks quickly to her bathroom to throw up. Sheldon stayed with her until she passed out on her bathroom floor. He folded a towel and put it under her head as a pillow before leaving. The next day, a hung over Amy could not remember what happened and when Sheldon told her, she was embarrassed and unsure stating "I'm not really sure where we go from here". Sheldon suggests that they treated their relationship as if it was a crashed computer and restart it at a point in which they think it worked best. Amy thanked him.

In "The Infestation Hypothesis", Sheldon got extremely bothered by Penny's new chair which she picked off from the street, as he is a germaphobe. After failing to convince Penny to get rid of the chair, he asked Amy to talk to her. Amy did not seem enthusiastic by the idea since not everybody is as germaphobe as Sheldon is. He asked her to name her price so she told him to kiss her where she has never been kissed before. A clueless Sheldon asked her back whether she meant a place like Salt Lake City. Amy told him to forget about it and agreed to go talk to Penny.

In "The Pulled Groin Extrapolation", Amy asked Leonard Hofstadter instead of Sheldon to attend a wedding with her, since Sheldon acted like a child during the last wedding they went together. Leonard agreed and Sheldon did not seem to mind it, as he was immersed with his toy train.

Amy and Leonard ended up having a good time at the wedding. Leonard injured his groin doing the Hokey-Pokey dance and Amy helped him by breaking off the head of the ice swan so that Leonard could hold it against his pulled groin. The next morning, Sheldon gushed about his new toy train to Leonard. Leonard told him that he must have had a great night and he agreed. He in turn asked Leonard how his night was. Leonard told him that he had much more fun with Amy than he thought he would. Sheldon asked him what he meant by that and Leonard told him that Amy knew how to make a guy loosen up and have a good time, and added that his groin was still a little worse for wear. Sheldon, misunderstanding Leonard's platonic relationship with Amy, judo-chopped him on the shoulder. Leonard asked him why he did that and he told him he is sending a message that "She is not for you!" He even repeated the message again before storming off to his bedroom.

In "The Isolation Permutation", Amy was left out from Bernadette and Penny's bridesmaid dress shopping. Devastated, she shut herself out from the outside world and decided to spend her time alone. Sheldon, after failing to contact her through the various means of technological communication, with the help of Leonard, decided to check up on her at her apartment. They discovered that she was weeping while playing "Everybody Hurts" on her harp. Sheldon immediately wanted to leave the place, since he did not like "weepy", but Leonard told him to step up since she is his friend. Leonard left and Sheldon stayed behind. He told her that he could not get a hold of her and she told him she wanted to be left alone. Sensing that she was upset, Sheldon asked her whether she would like to talk about what was troubling her, though she should keep in mind that he does not have a problem should she decline to do so. Amy told him about being left out by Penny and Bernadette. She then told him that at that moment, she was craving for human intimacy and physical contact. She proposed that they make love, but he counter-proposed that he would pat her head and tells her "Aw... who's a good Amy?" instead. They counter-proposed further until Amy proposed cuddling, and Sheldon relented. A few nights later, a drunken Amy called Sheldon, so he and Leonard went to find Amy drowning her sorrows at a liquor store parking lot. A drunken Amy playfully called Sheldon "Cuddles" earning a confused questioning look from Leonard, to which Sheldon replies irritably, "yes Cuddles, we cuddled, grow up Leonard." They take her home, though Leonard helps her up and Amy tells him that he found "second-base". 

Would You Be My Girlfriend?

In "The Flaming Spittoon Acquisition", Stuart, the comic book store owner expressed his interest in asking Amy out, but wanted to know whether Sheldon is fine with it. Sheldon was fine because he thought that a noted neurobiologist like Amy would never agree to go out with someone as average as Stuart. He was wrong since

Penny influenced her, by telling her that if she likes Stuart, she should give it a shot since she has been with Sheldon in a year and their relationship is going nowhere. Amy, who thinks Stuart is nice, funny, and possesses an overactive thyroid, which she finds hot, agreed. When Sheldon found out Amy actually agreed to go out with Stuart, he started feeling jealous though he tried to hide it. He friended Stuart on Facebook just to keep tabs on his date(s) with Amy. When the guys pointed out about his jealousy, he unfriended all of them. He later went over to Penny's and asked her to go out on a date with him as a

retaliation. Single Penny declined and told Sheldon to buck up and talk to Amy. Sheldon did so by crashing into Amy's movie date with Stuart. He tried to cover up his actual feelings by saying that he is willing to alter the paradigm of their relationship by no longer objecting if they characterize Amy as his "not his girlfriend". Amy wants him to ask her properly, but he thinks she's being impossible. He relents and asks her directly to be his girlfriend when she provokes him by leaning closer towards Stuart.  He agreed and after the date, Amy found Sheldon waiting for her at her apartment with a 31-page Relationship Agreement which she thought was romantic although she felt some of the terms to be too restrictive. They are now officially a couple.

In "The Shiny Trinket Maneuver", Amy revealed that as per The Relationship Agreement, their date night is on the second Thursday of the month, or the third Thursday, in a month that has five Thursdays. The episode began with Sheldon and Amy at The Cheesecake Factory on their date. Amy shared major news that an article in which she is the sole author of is going to be published on the journal "Neuron". Apparently, her achievement is quite significant as it could change the nature of her field and she has been waiting for that moment for a long time. Sheldon, however, ignored the fact and was busy checking his Twitter, excited that he has reached 100 followers. Upset, Amy made an excuse to go wash up, but left their date. Sheldon was oblivious to this fact until Penny pointed it out to him. He told her that he does not feel excited by Amy's accomplishment so Penny told him to fake it and think about koalas as he is doing so, since koalas make him melt inside. After talking with Leonard, Sheldon decided to buy Amy an apology gift and enlists Penny's help to find one. They ended up buying a tiara. Later, when Sheldon wanted to present the gift to Amy, he had Penny call Amy over to her apartment, while waiting in there himself, to talk to her. Amy was upset and pointed out that she does not want to talk to him. Sheldon apologized and congratulated her on her accomplishment and told her that he is very proud of her.

He even added his koala face. Amy, however, saw right through that and pointed out that she knows his koala face. Penny tries to save the situation by highlighting the fact Sheldon brought a gift for her. As she was unwrapping the gift, she told Sheldon that she thinks he is the most-shallow and self-centered person she has ever met for thinking her forgiveness could be brought with jewelry. She changed her mind when she finally saw the tiara and started squealing in excitement and asked Penny to put it on her. Penny complimented she looks beautiful and she agreed (Of course I do, I'm a princess and this is my tiara!) and proceeded to kiss and hug Sheldon. Sheldon hugged her back, albeit hesitantly. In "The Vacation Solution", Sheldon decided to work with Amy at her laboratory as a way to spend his enforced vacation, deriving the idea from Richard Feynman (1918-1988). He expected to be given tasks that are up to par with his intelligence and thought that he would breeze right through them, given his opinion of the superiority of Physics over Biology, and the fact that he is a genius. However, Amy, despite being excited to be able to work with her boyfriend, by

comparing them to Madame Curie and her husband Pierre, remained professional by setting menial tasks for Sheldon, given his inexperience in the field of biology. Among the tasks include counting spores and washing beakers. Sheldon complained over these, even though he failed to complete any of the tasks satisfyingly and at one point accused Amy of purposely giving him those tasks to ensure that he would not show her up. Annoyed, Amy let Sheldon take over the task she was doing, which was slicing a brain. Sheldon trembled nervously, and ended up cutting his thumb before passing out at the sight of blood. Afterwards, Amy refused to work with Sheldon anymore, and after talking with Penny, Sheldon came over to her laboratory and, with Amy's insistence and pushing, he gave her a sincere apology and resumed his vacation there doing menial tasks.

In "The Werewolf Transformation", Amy revealed that the two of them have a "girlfriend-boyfriend sing-a-long night". When Sheldon was distracted on such a night due to not getting his haircut on time, Amy told him to just let his hair grow out a little, because she thought he would look sexy with it. Sheldon refused. Amy dismissed herself to use her toothbrush on herself. After showing up at her doorstep at 3 a.m. in the morning with his bongos, he actually spent the night there (he slept on the couch, even though she offered her bed several times). Sheldon finally agreed to let Penny cut his hair. He did so with the persuasion of Amy, who told him there is not any hair on her body she would not let Penny trim.

In "The Weekend Vortex", Sheldon agreed to attend Amy's Great-Aunt Flora 93rd birthday party, after she followed all the protocols regarding traveling as per The Relationship Agreement. However, he was swayed on his decision when the guys planned to have a 48-hour Star Wars online gaming marathon. Amy was adamant that he keep his word, and Sheldon reluctantly agreed to keep his word. Before they began their journey, Sheldon brought along his laptop and planned to still join the online game although he would be at the party, even at the expense of ignoring any of her family members who might want to talk to him. Agitated, Amy sarcastically told him that if gaming meant that much to him, he should stay with his friends. He did not get her meaning, thanked her and stayed. Amy had an awful time at the party and later confided in Penny about how much Sheldon hurt her. Penny advised her to make a scene, but Amy failed to keep up the ruse about leaving Sheldon for Arman, the miniature horse breeder. Penny eventually told Sheldon the truth. Sheldon decided to make it up back to Amy by offering her "Cooper Coupons", which listed down the things that he was willing to do for her. Penny thought Amy wouldn't be bought so easily, but Amy picked a coupon and redeemed it. The coupon allowed her to spent an afternoon with him at the science center where he would point out all their mistakes

In "The Launch Acceleration", Sheldon and Amy had their monthly date night at her apartment. Sheldon was

caught by surprise at Amy's request for progress on their relationship, following in the footsteps of their friends' relationships. As expected, Sheldon turned down the idea immediately, thinking that they could not progress faster than they are going. Amy was certain that despite Sheldon's reluctance, if she plays her cards right, she could get what she wants. Amy decided to use her skills in neurobiology to transfer his emotional attachments that he had formed growing up to her. She started by setting-up their date night to accommodate Sheldon's likes, such as playing Super Mario Brothers theme song, serving him Strawberry Quik and spaghetti with little pieces of hot dog cut up in it. Her plans seemed to work well because Sheldon thought that they should do it more often. Later on in the episode, Sheldon starts playing poorly at chess and confesses to Leonard that Amy had started an experiment involving him. He explained that she had managed to allow him to be an Amtrak junior train conductor for the day, when it was supposedly only open for children, and he got to blow the train whistle. He admitted to Leonard that he was having affectionate feelings for her and kept thinking about her at inappropriate times though they only consist of objects forming the pattern of Amy's dandruff on her slightly humped shoulders. At the end of the episode, Leonard caught the couple playing Doctor, Star Trek style, with Amy even dressed up in a blue Star Trek medical uniform, and Sheldon as the patient lying flat on the couch. Sheldon tells Leonard that he is in hell, but then tells Amy "Don't stop".

In "The Countdown Reflection", we can see Amy strongly hinting that she wants to make progress in their relationship. While waiting for Howard and Bernadette's chance to be married in City Hall (which does not actually occur) she asks if being there makes Sheldon think, an innuendo that, naturally, he misses entirely. During the wedding ceremony, Amy is obviously disappointed that Sheldon's entire speech centers on how he is happy all by himself. We can see in the end of the episode; however, that Sheldon has, at the very least, a subconscious need for Amy and his relationship with her and that he is not, as he claims, entirely complete in himself when he reaches for her hand for comfort as they watch Howard's rocket is launched into space.

At the beginning of season six, Amy and Sheldon are shown to be regularly dating. In "The Date Night Variable", Sheldon invites Raj along for their second anniversary dinner much to Amy's annoyance. After Raj leaves, Amy demands a statement from the heart from Sheldon or she was leaving him. Sheldon provided some paraphrased romantic dialogue from the first Spider Man movie. Amy says that she'll "take it".

In "The Decoupling Fluctuation" episode, Amy confides to her girlfriends that she has a plan to marry Sheldon in four years, but don't tell him that because he is still a flight risk. Also while at the movies, Amy requires Sheldon to now hold her hand though Sheldon thinks the idea is silly and unhygienic. Amy discovers that Sheldon has hired a pretty assistant Alex that he failed to mention was a girl in "The Higgs Boson Observation". First she and Penny break into Sheldon's office trying to catch them together. In the cafeteria, they see that Alex is flirting with Leonard. Amy relaxes and tells Penny that that skank is her problem. In "The Habitation Configuration", Amy is directing an episode of "Fun with Flags" guest starring Wil Wheaton. While not liking his acting, the two get into an argument and Amy leaves. Sheldon is first caught in the middle and then naively thinks that Amy is solving the problem by leaving. He eventually learns that he should support Amy in disagreements.

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. The next episode, "The Fish Guts Displacement", Sheldon finds Amy has the flu and she asks him to take care of her per their Relationship Agreement. At first Sheldon says that that is meant for her to take care of him when he is sick 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-being so he will take care of her. Later when he finds that her temperature hasn't gone down, he tells her that she isn't trying. Amy complains about his bedside 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 still has to put a damp rag on her forehead, sing to her (probably Soft Kitty) and rub Vick's vapor rub on her chest. Surprised, Amy sits up, and suggests they start with the vapor rub.  Sheldon tells her that it may tingle not realizing the sexual implications 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. Later Sheldon has the results of a cheek swab 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 (Star Trek into Darkness), but Sheldon feels that that is too harsh a punishment. He states in an ideal world she would be put in stocks in public, but thinks that he probably needs a permit for it. Instead, he decides to spank her, a punishment he had seen his father perform on his brother. However, she seems to enjoy it saying "oh my", Sheldon picks up on it and he tells her off. She replies that maybe he should spank her harder then and missing the sexual innuendo Sheldon replies "perhaps I will." The bathing, spanking, and chest rubbing show how Sheldon has become more intimate and comfortable with touching Amy.

In "The Cooper/Kripke Inversion", Sheldon lies to Kripke about sleeping with Amy after Kripke performs better than him on a project they were working on together. Also, Sheldon enjoys being held and consoled by Amy when he is very upset about Kripke. When Penny asked if their relationship would ever become physical, Sheldon replied, "It's a possibility." Penny practically beats Leonard up over her (and the audience's) excitement over the news that Amy may eventually get the physical relationship she wants.

Sheldon first and kiss amy

The Big Bang Theory’s Mayim Bialik reveals why Amy’s first kiss with Sheldon was actually pretty grim to film, thanks to Jim Parsons

Mayim Bialik and Jim Parsons behind the scenes of The Big Bang Theory

The Big Bang Theory’s Mayim Bialik has revealed that filming her first kissing scene with Jim Parsons wasn’t quite the romantic tale Amy Farrah and Sheldon Cooper showed us on screen.

Amy was first introduced to Sheldon way back at the end of season three when they were set up on a dating site by cupids Howard (played by Simon Helberg) and Raj (Kunal Nayyar) and eventually shared their first smooch, which caught TBBT fans off guard.

Since then they’ve got married and there’s been a few suggestions Amy is already pregnant and will break the news during the final ever episode, which is less than a month away. Ugh.

Looking back on one of Amy and Sheldon’s most tender moments from the past decade, Mayim revealed the moment the couple shared their first kiss was actually well grim behind-the-scenes.

‘You had the flu,’ the former Blossom star recalled to Jim while speaking to USA Today.

‘You kept swishing around with Listerine or whatever to kill my germs,’ he remembered.

Mayim noted: ‘You were sweating. You had a fever. You were very sick.’


Their interview comes after Mayim shared a picture of Howard’s baby taken while filming the season 12 episode Child’s Play, which saw Sheldon come around to the idea of having kids – 15 of them, actually.

And the little one is possibly the creepiest doll since Chucky, with hair to rival Danny Zuko and, honestly, we’ve been losing sleep over it.

As it stands, there’s no sign of another big bang baby on the way. Penny (Kaley Cuoco) has completely ruled out the idea of kids, even after Leonard (johnny Galecki) was handed the opportunity to spawn a mini Leonard for her ex-boyfriend. Unsurprisingly, that proved to be a little problematic.

But fans know Amy and Sheldon will eventually have children of their own, thanks to a vision previously seen in spin-off series The Young Sheldon.

The Big Bang Theory airs tonight on CBS in the US and E4 in the UK.

The Big Bang Theory: Sheldon & Amy's Relationship Timeline, Season By Season

Shamy is a fan-favorite couple in The Big Bang Theory, but how did their relationship change over the years?

Neither Sheldon nor Amy were looking for love when they first met - in fact, both agreed to a blind date purely to make someone else happy. However, by the end of The Big Bang Theory, Shamy was the fan-favorite couple, and both Sheldon and Amy grew immensely through their love for each other.

Seeing them move in together, get married, and start a life together was incredibly heartwarming, and while their relationship wouldn't suit many people (coming as it did with a contract and scheduled intercourse), it was perfect for Shamy. From the first season that Amy appears, to the finale of the series, here's how their love story unfolded. (seasons one and two are not included, as Amy first appears in season 3)

10 Season 3 - The First Date

Sheldon and Amy first connect in the season three finale, after Raj and Howard create a dating profile for Sheldon as a bit of a joke. However, when they end up setting up a date with Amy, they realize that they may have actually found the perfect match! The two have only a single scene together this season, but it's one that definitely sets the groundwork for their future relationship.

9 Season 4 - A Girl, A Friend, But Not A Girlfriend

It's obvious that Sheldon and Amy are phenomenally well suited for each other, but they are struggling to define their relationship in this season. Neither (at this point) want a romantic relationship, but they are clearly in something approximating that. They break up a couple of times, over silly things, with quick resolutions to their misunderstandings - and Amy starts to bond with Penny and Bernadette.

8 Season 5 - A Girl, A Friend, And An Actual Girlfriend

This season, Amy and Sheldon start out still ostensibly not dating, but all that changes when Amy goes out with Stuart from the comic book store. Turns out, Sheldon is jealous, and when he realizes that he does actually want to be in a relationship with Amy, he asks her out, and she accepts. The two then start a new stage in their relationship, one where they actually date. However, physical affection is still pretty much nonexistent at this point.

7 Season 6 - Starting To Get Serious

Amy is now an established member of the gang, and Sheldon's girlfriend, but their relationship is still a little bit unusual - and this causes some friction throughout the series.

Whether it is Sheldon inviting Raj on a date or Penny and the gang using a D&D game to poke fun at the dynamic, it's clear that Amy is starting to get frustrated with the relationship that they have, and that she wants something more.

6 Season 7 - The First Kiss

After so long dating, Sheldon and Amy finally share their first kiss this season, after Amy arranges a train tour for Valentine's Day. It's an incredibly sweet moment, as Sheldon really starts to understand how much he loves and relies on Amy. She also realizes that she would be incredibly lonely without him, and it seems like all is going well. However, when Penny and Leonard get engaged, and Amy suggests that perhaps she should move in with him, he gets completely overwhelmed, and decides to run out on everyone, going on a train journey by himself.

5 Season 8 - Sheldon Says 'I Love You', & Amy Ends Things

This may be the saddest season for Shamy, as things just keep going wrong. In the beginning, things are pretty solid, and Amy and Sheldon are happy together. For a while, it also seems like things are moving forward in some amazing ways. They spend the night together (although without 'coitus', just a sleepover) because they have so much fun together. Sheldon even says 'I love you'. However, in a shocking moment at the end of the season, Amy breaks up with Sheldon, exhausted at how much work their relationship is... and Sheldon sadly reveals to the audience that he had bought an engagement ring.

4 Season 9 - Back And Forth, And Finally, Coitus

This is definitely the most tumultuous season for Shamy, as it starts with Amy breaking things off. She tries to date a little bit, culminating in Sheldon seeing her kiss another man when he turns up at her door, intending to apologize and propose.

Later, they manage to become friends again, but when Amy then wants to get back together, Sheldon is the one to turn it down, upset at how hard things were to get past. In the end, though, the two do reconcile, and manage to become better than ever. They even, for Amy's birthday, finally get physical - starting their 'once a year' dynamic.

3 Season 10 - Moving In And A Proposal

This season, Amy and Sheldon take some major steps forward. First, they end up moving in together when Amy's apartment floods, and she needs a place to stay. They decide to move into Penny's apartment (with Penny and Leonard living in the apartment across the hall) as an 'experiment'. In the end, it's a successful one. However, Amy ends up leaving when she gets a summer program opportunity at Princeton - and worries that it may cause issues. She shouldn't worry, though, as Sheldon ends up flying out to her after Ramona kissed him - and he proposes on the spot.

2 Season 11 - A Shamy Wedding

This season is all about the engagement and the wedding, as it starts with Amy accepting Sheldon's proposal, and ends with their wedding day. Of course, the engagement and the wedding are truly unique, and definitely fit the two of them! It's an incredible season for the two, though, especially because they are both so wholeheartedly happy to be marrying each other - and to be working together, too.

1 Season 12 - Bow Ties And Nobel Prizes

In the season 11 finale, Sheldon and Amy are distracted on their wedding day thanks to a breakthrough with the project they are working on together - and this season sees them publish a paper, deal with people attempting to steal credit, winning a Nobel Prize, and on top of it all, figuring out how to be married to each other. In the end, though, it's clear that Sheldon and Amy are pretty perfect for each other, and they couldn't be a cuter couple.
