** Beverly Hofstadter is repeatedly referred to as being an award-winning psychiatrist and author. However besides various mentioning’s the only time we ever see one of her books being used is when it was required for Penny’s community college psychology class. In addition while she is an adapt psychoanalyst. She tends to force clinical analysis on people around her, distantly insulting and abrasively mocking people around her before using psychological jargon to distant herself from the antagonism which she has created. Over all she comes across as rather cold, robotic and, overly analytical that it’s hard to see how she could be a good psychiatrist when she seems to see other humans as merely test subjects and will ask those she finds particularly interesting if they would be willing to have their brain scanned.

* IChooseToStay: Amy's TimeTravelRomance FanFic uses this trope. Cooper is a time traveler from the 21st century, temporarily stranded in the 19th century. He has gained a love interest, Amelia, during his stay. He prepares to use his TimeMachine to return to his own time period. But at the end, he can't bear living Amelia and chooses to stay. “There is no future without you".

* HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood: Leonard, to the point where the government would have taken him away from his mother had they known about the psychological torments she put him through. Sheldon to a lesser extent, being more of a case of a loving family to which he was well out of step (as evidenced by his complaints about not receiving a titanium centrifuge as a child, as no child would wants a dirt bike). Though all the male characters appear to have been regularly bullied in school.

*** That might have more to do with the fact that ''The Big Bang Theory'' is distributed by Warner Bros., who own DC Comics, and there is that big [[FandomRivalry rivalry]] between DC and Marvel (who are owned by Warners' other rival, Disney)

* IvyLeagueForEveryone: Justified in a show featuring scientists working at the forefront of their respective fields:
** Leonard, a native of New Jersey, finished his Bachelor's, Master's and Doctor's degrees in Applied Physics at Princeton.
** Howard finished his Master's degree majoring in Aerospace Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
** Before migrating to the United States, Raj took his undergraduate degree at Oxford and continued his graduate studies in Astrophysics at Cambridge.
** Amy spent her undergraduate years at Harvard, although it is not known where she went for graduate studies.
** While it is not mentioned where Bernadette studied for her Ph.D. in Microbiology, being a California native and a resident of Pasadena makes it very likely that she attended UCLA or USC in Los Angeles.
