* The 2015 Valentine's Day episode where it's revealed (to the audience; not Howard) that Bernadette is pregnant. Howard and Bernadette's plot involved them being unable to use their hot tubs because a rabbit was found nearly drowning in it. It's struck me as strange that Bernadette was about to get into a hot tub, despite knowing she was pregnant. In the very next episode she even tells Penny and Amy she can't use hot tubs until after she gives birth. It finally hit me: Bernadette had planned on using the hot tubs as a way of revealing to Howard that she was pregnant (it's just the drowning rabbit through a kink in that plan). And, now I feel stupid.

*** An issue of ''Batman'' lampshades this in the same way, remarking on how despite Gotham's a poor and dreary city, it's criminals seem to be the most well-educated in the world.

* It has frequently been mentioned on the show that Wednesday is comic book night. Now, those not that immersed in geek culture might figure this is more of Sheldon's pedantic insistence on a schedule. However, as anyone who frequents a comic store can tell you, Wednesday IS when new issues are delivered to the stores, and our boys would want to read the fresh material before anyone else had a chance to put out any spoilers.

* How could Leonard put up with Sheldon's antics? Because he's lived with somebody worse: His mother. This also puts a rather Freudian spin on Leonard and Sheldon's relationship. Leonard moved away from his mother, only to move in with his mother.
** If you buy into one of Freud's [[OedipusComplex most (in)famous theories]], it could also put a HoYay spin on their relationship.

* In the Season Eight finale, when Sheldon asks Amy if he should watch ''Series/TheFlash''. It seems like he's just being his usual nerdy self, but he's leading to a bigger question by starting with something small. Well done, writers, not just in the noted BaitAndSwitch but in having Sheldon do things "his way" all the time!

* AscendedFridgeHorror: Leonard has changed a lot due to Penny's influence, like standing up to Sheldon more. The old Leonard was never as open or bold as he is now. However, the old Leonard would have never even thought of doing things like cheating on her. [[spoiler: How much of his cheating on her while on a boat two years prior to their wedding is a result of her influence?]]
** Also, how much of his cheating on her is [[LaserGuidedKarma some form of karma]] for all of the times she has admitted to stealing other girls' boyfriends and cheating on men she was dating?

* In a previous season four episode, a rumor spread that Bernadette was going to break up with Howard. Odd, considering how Bernie spends most of the episode not acting like someone considering a breakup. This rumor makes sense once you consider who started it: Penny, who was totally alone at the time. Like Raj, the thought of those two breaking up probably made her happy, since she wouldn't be the only miserable one anymore. She probably heard Bernie complaining about something Howard did, and jumped to the wrong conclusion.
** A similar case may have occured in the season four finale. Bernadette gets her PH.D., and Howard barely has a few seconds to congratulate her before Penny leads the charge in teasing him for his lack of a doctorate. Again, she was feeling crappy about herself at the time, [[spoiler: which may have led to her affair with Raj]], and wanted someone else to feel bad for a while.

* Leonard's mother picks on him about "going left" during breastfeeding to the point that she ended up lopsided, but normally, a baby breastfeeds on whichever side they're facing when their mother holds them. She was so adverse to holding Leonard and compromising her research that she refused to pick him up even to feed him. It might be even more callous. Beverley obviously knows that breast feeding is best for the baby, but always puts him to her left breast - leaving her right hand free to manipulate her mouse or type on her keyboard.
** Adding to the above: Not only was she a poor parent to little Leonard, but a poor scientist in her research. She callously mocks him for things he did as a child AND submits fraudulent research. And I only say the later because she limited her interactions with HER OWN SON to ways that were most convenient for her, therefore compromising her experiments before they could even begin.
