** Why she named her electric toothbrush "Gerard" took several years to click. Butler is a pretty famous maker of oral hygiene products.

* Why dose Beverly Hofstadter keep appearing to spite being TheScrappy, because her entire character is one giant TakeThatAudience. You don't have to look further than this very site to see that [[FanDumb fan's like to use]] InsaneTrollLogic [[FanDumb to excuse Sheldon of his]] {{Jerkass}} behavior and blame all the problems on the others (especially [[ButtMonkey Lenard]]), so they introduced [[HateSink Beverly]] who takes all of Sheldon's negative traits UpToEleven, and still brings out the worst in him, with no RefugeInAudacity. Much like how fans will make any excuse to [[DesignatedHero make Sheldon come of as the good guy]] [[DesignatedVillain and Lenard the bad guy]] Beverly insists that all the problems with their relationship are Lenard's fault and everyone just goes along with it to spite the fact that she's clearly a terrible mother and yet she still maintains a career as a child psychiatrist. Basically {{This|LoserIsYou}} {{Jerkass}} [[ThisLoserIsYou is you.]

* After Sheldon forms his own team for the Physics Bowl, the other guys try to find a replacement. A rather inane conversation about replacing her with the "chick who played {{Blossom}}" ensues. After the idea is rejected, Winnie from The Wonder Years is suggested in a throw-away reference. The joke is that Danica [=McKellar=] (aka Winnie) is now a mathematician and Mayim Bialik (aka Blossom) has a [=PhD=] in neurobiology. Oh, and to make this even better? [[CelebrityParadox Both actresses]] show up (in different episodes) in incredibly geeky guest parts in the third season -- with Bialik having an even more permanent role in the fourth.

* Sheldon revealed to Penny the reason why he always knocks three times: It's to give people "time to put their pants on", because he caught his father having sex with another woman and was so hurt that he never spoke to him again. Since his father died when Sheldon was still young, we might actually ''see this entire scenario actually happen'' at some point on "Young Sheldon". It's especially harsh because [[spoiler:part of the first episode of that series was Sheldon ''bonding'' with his father, and eventually that will all be lost and he'll never get it back.]]

* "The Opening Night Excitation" has Sheldon giving away his ticket for the movie. He gives it to Leonard, only to take it back when Leonard suggests giving it to Penny. It comes off as petty until you remember that Penny HATES Star Wars. Sheldon could have done this so that someone who would actually have a good time at the showing could go instead.

** Another reason may be that she lacks the passion needed for it. In a season six episode, she complains to Bernadette that Leonard is passionate for things in a way that she can never be. Bernadette suggests making a list of things that she cares about to see what she was passionate about. Penny's response: "That's gonna be a lot of work!" One would think that an aspiring actress would list ACTING as something she was passionate about. She even moved from her hometown in Nebreska to pursue it, and later quit her waitressing job to commit to it more. However, it could be that as time went on, and her struggles persisted, she became more jaded and less passionate about her career choices. It was already showing in her work as a waitress; maybe it began to show in her work as an actress. It could be the real reason why she was cut from the NCIS episode, as well as what led to her eventually giving up acting.

* In one episode Lenard, Howard and Raj go to Texas to pick up Sheldon from his mothers house, Howard feel he needs to blend in so he buys a cowboy hat and starts taking with a fake accent, Mary is at first amused by this but when she asked the boys if they wanted a drink and he requested a "lone star beer" she snapped at him that they didn't keep beer in her house and ordered him to take off the hat. Considering Sheldon's late father was said to be TheAlcoholic and [[AwfulWeddedLife the way their marriage]] [[YourCheatingHeart was always described]] it makes sense that this would be her BerserkButton.

* Bernadette has been getting more annoyed with Howard's geeky hobbies, as of late. It happens even when it shouldn't be a problem for her at all. This makes no sense until you consider who she hangs out with: Penny, who has never like any of those things in the first place, and Amy, who resents anything that takes away Sheldon's attention to her and has also been influenced by her friendship with Penny (Penny probably mentioned many times that having geeky hobbies like what Leonard and co have is dumb, and Amy has been following her lead since).

* In season nine, Sheldon pissed off just about everyone with his behavior during a time when he was sick. He then apologized to them, and they all forgave him except Raj's girlfriend Emily, who was even more insulted by his apology (he insulted her job). This is due to the fact that she wasn't used to Sheldon's typical behavior, even after nearly two years of dating Raj. However, she never really had the chance to do so since she didn't really spend that much time with the group: the few times she hung out with Howard, she only saw him in a negative way (attacking Stewart, not wanting to help the homeless at Thanksgiving, ruining her toilet), she hated Penny for her past hookup with Raj, she and Amy stopped hanging out after the episode where she was introduced, she had little to no interaction with Leonard but did walk in him dressed in Penny's underwear (to prove a point, but still), and while she and Bernadette didn't have any negative interactions, she probably didn't think too highly of someone who willingly married Howard. Heck, she and Raj even struggled from time to time. So, unlike Amy and Bernadette, who were immediately integrated into the group once they started dating Sheldon and Howard, Emily spent most of the time separated from them. In hindsight, this foreshadowed [[spoiler: the end of her relationship with Raj.]]
