* OnlyOneName: Penny's last name has not been revealed in the show. This was revealed by the writers to be something of an accident, since the guys are (mostly) [=PhD's=] they were referred to as Dr. Cooper, Dr. Hofstader, etc. and their diplomas' are seen on the wall. With Penny they didn't even realize they hadn't revealed her last name yet, and by the third season they felt supersticious about doing so. Of course, by the ninth season she does have a known last name... [[TheyDo Hofstader]].

** Penny was quick to point out that for a bunch of guys who claim they were bullied growing up, they showed absolutely no reservation in making fun of her friendly but not-particularly-bright friend Zack.

** Penny's ex boyfriend Kurt. In the Pilot, Kurt split up with Penny and got to keep their television set. When Leonard and Sheldon attempt to take the TV, Kurt strips them off their pants. He gets away with it. In the later episode "The Financial Permeability", Kurt is arrested for urinating on a police car. When arrested, it turns out he had a slew of unpaid tickets, as well as an outstanding bench warrant. Penny pays all his fines and Kurt does not intend to repay her. Months later, Leonard confronts him about this, and Kurt writes an "I owe her" note ... on Leonard's forehead in indelible ink. Kurt does pay Penny back, but never reveals Leonard's involvement. So Penny is grateful to Kurt and they have a dinner date. Kurt faces no consequences for his behavior.

** Sheldon is this in the The Weekend Vortex. He made plans with Amy to visit her family, and even though the Relationship Agreement requires her to do a ridiculous amount of things before he would agree such as 72 hours notice, checking the tire pressure on her car, and calling the CDC to see what kind of inoculations are required for Orange County. (There aren't any) he decides not to go at the last minute instead opting to play video games all weekend. When Amy and Penny go to confront Sheldon the episode turns into how lonely Raj is causing all the woman to leave and Sheldon to get off Scott free

* MoralMyopia: both in and [[RootingForTheEmpire out]] of universe Sheldon expects (and is expected to) the people around him to bend over backwards for him, but doesn't see any reason to do anything to reciprocate. Many times he considers the bare minimum that he does for others (such as asking how Leonard's day went while admitting that he doesn't care) is equal to the unreasonable demands he puts on his friends, because he doesn't see them as equals. For example he got into an EscalatingWar with Penny over the rules at his apartment but also sees nothing wrong with imposing his rules at her apartment or anyplace for that matter. In addition it is bad to give Sheldon Spoilers but itís perfectly okay for him to give Spoilers to others.
** Sheldon also has no problem talking down to his peers or laughing at their mistakes yet gets incredibly depressed when the same thing happens to him.

* MortalityPhobia: Sheldon plans to download his consciousness into a computer in order to live forever. When he gets concerned that the technology won't be available in his lifetime, he constructs a robot with a webcam and monitor so he can interact with others virtually while remaining sealed in his room away from anything that might harm him.
