** Followed by Stuart being the woobie is just not funny anymore. Tropers who are battling depression themselves just want to give that poor guy a hug and tell him that everything is gonna be alright.

** The moment when it seems to finally dawn on Howard that he really isn't ever going to see his mother again. The man can only get teared up in his wife's arms.

* After Leonard moved in with Penny, Sheldon is worried that he is going to see less and less of Leonard and lists all the reasons why they would have dinner with each other on special occasions. The first two reasons are funny only for it to ends with him claiming Amy will marry someone else, someone better than Sheldon. It seems the idea he may have permanently lost Amy has finally sunk in, and its hit so hard he'll actually resort to self criticism. Sheldon has such a sad look on his face that he really sells it.

* In ''The Platonic Permutation'' so they don't waste the tickets, Sheldon and Amy decide to go to the Aquarium café Thanksgiving Dinner as friends. Though the food proves to be awful, the two have a fun time together. So much so, that Amy begins to remember why she wanted to date Sheldon in the first place and begins to miss their interactions. That night, she calls him and asks if they can get back together. Sheldon, still having problems with their break up and getting over her, turns her down stating they need to stay friends for the moment. Amy quietly accepts this, while looking heartbroken. Worse still, it's the end of the episode, so we're just left with a look at Amy disappointed face.

* In''The Mystery Date Observation'', Amy finds out she is dating a Sheldon Cooper fanboy. While the laugh track is quite amused, the fact that all the things he keeps raving about were things that involved Sheldon being a selfish ManChild towards her gets kind of depressing.

* [[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 worse 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?)

** The final moment of that episode qualifies, too - while Howard and Bernadette travel to Florida (as Mrs. Wolowitz died there), the rest of the friend circle gathers in Sheldon and Leonard's apartment and reminisces about her, ending with Leonard leading a toast to "Mrs. Wolowitz, a loving mother... to all of us."

** The whole thing gets ramped UpToEleven when you remember that this is a case of RealLifeWritesThePlot - the actress who provided the voice of [[TheUnseen Mrs. Wolowitz]] passed away for real, and so the entire plotline was added to the show. To at least some extent, the grieving shown by all the actors is genuine.

** The title of the episode refers to Penny and Sheldon taking a test that can apparently make people fall in love within minutes. One part of the test is revealing secrets to each other. Penny confesses that deep down, she wishes that she was as smart as the rest of the group, hinting that she might be insecure about her own intelligence. Sheldon, meanwhile, notes he wishes he could "read minds"--that is, understand human interaction and emotion as well as Penny and others do. There is a kind of [[FridgeLogic Fridge Sadness]] here; Sheldon is so emotionally stunted that he considers socializing with others and having basic empathy a superpower. It also reveals that he he genuinely can't differentiate between people being annoyed at him or other things; again, Fridge Sadness suggests that he's so used to people finding him bothersome that he ''expects it to happen'' whenever he meets someone new.
