** Both Bernadette and Amy Farrah Fowler started out as sporadic recurring characters introduced in the third season and given their own little plot lines in the fourth. While they may not always show up unlike the core 5, they are credited as stars in the episodes they appear, and have appeared much more frequently than before. Starting from Season 5, they can be expected to appear in any given episode and get just as much focus as any of the other characters.

Now they are integral part of the main cast with equal screentime.

* TheBechdelTest:
** Narrowly succeeds. Penny being the sole prominent female character, it was to be expected but the later addition of Bernadette and Amy to the cast, gives the girls more opportunities to occasionally speak about something else than men. Relationship issues usually comes up with their various get-togethers, as each have a romantic counterpart on the guys side, but on the whole they aren't always just talking about men (they actually had a "Truth or Dare" game where Penny ended it when they asked some uncomfortable questions about her feelings for Leonard).
** Initially, the "girl group" was largely there to provide a female perspective on the guys story or help define their relationships with the guys via their gossip. Eventually, it developed to be more about their own interactions (such as Amy giving Penny a [[UnwantedGiftPlot gaudy painting of the two of them]]) or otherwise have their own story with little to no connection to the guys. An interesting episode had the girls take the day off work to go to Disneyland and they got Franchise/DisneyPrincess make-overs (Penny just wanted to get drunk and go on rides), while in the midst of that Sheldon called Amy and Bernadette over the phone to give a short speech over female roles.
** Referenced in the Season 7 premiere. Amy and Bernadette attend a biology conference together and note that they enjoy being able to have intellectual conversations with each other since they usually only talk about boys when Penny is around. Immediately subverted when some guys buy them drinks and they immediately dissolve into puddles of boy-crazy-ness.

** In the Season 3 episode ''The Adhesive Duck Deficiency'', Penny falls in the shower and breaks her arm. She calls for Sheldon to help, because she knows the sight of her naked would literally do nothing for him. In fact, Sheldon spends more time whining about the possibility of getting injured driving than appreciating the fact that he got to enjoy Kaley Cuoco "in the altogether."
