* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0h0qZCjR_k In "The Friendship Algorithm", Sheldon is at a bookstore looking for a book about making friends when he strikes up a conversation with a little girl.]] They get along, with Sheldon offering to take her to a zoo before Leonard drags him away because of how bad it looks. It's set up as a [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments gag]] and it works as one, but it also fits here because we (the audience) know, for all his quirks and annoying habits, would never do something like that to her and she was probably relatively safe with him. Child abduction and abuse are horrible, it's just people have to assume the worst even from someone who wouldn't even have a sexual encounter with a willing woman his age (Amy, Season 5). The absolute worst part: Sheldon was trying to learn how to make friends and that girl probably would've been a close friend (It's Sheldon, would it have been weirder than half the stuff he does?)

** It's more heartbreaking when you realize this is a very sad case of Truth in Television. A lot of people like Amy probably DID spend birthdays all alone unwillingly and Amy was fortunate enough to find people to free her from her loneliness. This troper spent a few alone and the heartache that Amy feels is very real. Spending your own birthday all alone, with only a tiny cupcake and no one to even wish you happy birthday, leaving you in tears... How this could even be CONSIDERED a gag is beyond this troper.

* While ''The Birthday Synchronicity'' is otherwise a very heartwarming episode with [[spoiler: Howard and Bernadette's daughter being born]], Howard briefly laments that Mrs. Wolowitz would have made [[spoiler: an amazing grandma]] if she was still alive.

Added DiffLines:

* In "The Emotion Detection Automation," Sheldon is shown to be deeply upset by the fact that he has such a hard time reading other people's emotions, and that he genuinely dislikes his (apparent) LackOfEmpathy. However, as Amy points out, the mere fact that he's upset by this shows how far he's come since earlier seasons.

* Leonard and Penny breaking up, Leonard's heartbreak was devastating to watch, that what we heard about how hard he was taking it from Sheldon.

* Leonard and Penny breaking up, up. Leonard's heartbreak was devastating to watch, that then what we heard about how hard he was taking it from Sheldon.Sheldon.
** And for my money, there was Penny's agonized sobbing as she broke up with Leonard. My interpretation is that she really did love him, but was afraid she couldn't be what he needed.

* In "The Commitment Determination", Sheldon offends Amy for the umpteenth time. Sheldon doesn't understand what he did wrong, but Amy is really upset because he was thinking more about ''The Flash'' series more than her during their fifth anniversary of their first date. Eventually, after stumbling through the episode with his DumbassHasAPoint behavior when it comes to relationships, he Skypes Amy. [[spoiler: Amy, sick of Sheldon's inability to read people and general selfishness, tells him she wants to step back in their relationship and ends the call. Sheldon, confused, turns to his Gollum figure and asks the ring expert what to do with the one he just bought.]] Unlike other serious moments in the show that may be spoiled by MoodWhiplash, there is no laughter after this turn of events. It just cuts to the credits.

* A jerk he sometimes might be, but you can't help feeling sorry for Raj in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kNYJt1zft9o this situation]]. It seems funny to outsiders, but selective mutism is real and awful, awful condition to suffer from.

* Although it was played for the gag, [[http://youtu.be/b2I8JHewYS0?t=2m45s the scene where Amy imagines her life if she never met Sheldon]], showing her sitting completely alone in her apartment, celebrating her own birthday with a tiny cupcake. Then her breaking into tears while halfway through singing herself happy birthday, is really quite heart breaking. It defiantly hammers in the fact that before she met him, she had no one what so ever who cared about her.
