* The introduction of Arthur Jeffrey's AKA Professor Proton, the childhood idol of Sheldon who once hosted a science-themed kids show in Texas. While Sheldon still idolizes the man, it's clear to everyone else just what a toll life has taken on the old man, as hosting the show cost him any sort of serious career in science. By the time he first appears on the show, he is ancient and spent, and understandably somewhat bitter that all anyone will remember about him is Professor Proton.

* Sheldon tells Amy to cover her ears so he can talk to Leonard. Sheldon then says he wants to have sex with Amy, and the crowd erupts... then it's revealed [[KickTheDog he was just testing if she could hear him.]] What makes this so ''sad'' for Amy fans is the revelation that Sheldon KNOWS Amy wants to have sex with him, and refuses to.

* [[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.

* 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.
