** Howard's wardrobe style has remained [[LimitedWardrobe pretty static over the seasons]], tight jeans with a bold belt buckle and a button up shirt with a turtleneck underneath. But the early seasons had an emphasis on very bright, mixed colors, including things like red jeans and a yellow turtleneck. After he marries Bernadette his ensemble tends to be darker and with more complimentary colors, jeans are a normal blue and his turtleneck black, making him come out looking much more stylish.

** {{Invoked|Trope}} by Sheldon in "The Bat jar Conjecture". When the group practices for a physics based quiz show, Sheldon answers the question no matter who rang in first. When confronted about the problem, Sheldon brushes it off by saying the game is not supposed to be about having fun and it is more about winning, so he is doing everyone a favor by answering all the questions for them. This causes the rest of the guys to boot Sheldon off the team.

** In the same episode as Penny's one to all the guys, she ends up actually getting one of her own from [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness Sheldon]] (of all people), for causing Leonard to sink into depression and almost give away all of his collectibles.

* ShootingLessonsFromYourParents: In the episode "The Beta Test Initiative", Leonard takes Penny to a pistol-shooting range on a date, having discovered she was taught to shoot by the father who really wanted a boy. It is also possible Sheldon's father, or other significant male relative, attempted to teach him the indispensable rites-of-passage skills necessary to a young Texan.

** The (broadcast in 2013) episode "The Raiders Minimization" partially revolves around Sheldon having ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' ruined for him by Amy, who points out that Franchise/IndianaJones is basically a PinballProtagonist who has no real effect on the plot of the film. At one point in the 2012 novel ''Literature/ThisBookIsFullOfSpidersSeriouslyDudeDontTouchIt'', David Wong mentions his girlfriend Amy ruining ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' for him by pointing out that Franchise/IndianaJones is basically a PinballProtagonist who has no real effect on the plot of the film.

* ScienceShow: Not the show itself (although the characters discuss obscure science topics on a regular basis, so you can still learn something), but the ShowWithinAShow ''Professor Proton'', which Leonard and Sheldon watched as children. It was later revived with Wil Wheaton, to Sheldon's chagrin.



** In the early seasons Penny tended to wear crop tops, tank tops, short shorts and otherwise show a lot of skin, which was reflective of her young age (she was 22 in the first season). In the third season she started dressing more conservatively, wearing jeans, sweats and shirts with sleeves and higher necklines. About season eight she more often wears slacks, blouses and even jackets as she got a job as a pharmaceutical representative.

[[note]]Some of this can be attributed to the riding accident Kaley Cuoco suffered during the season; the long pants hid her scarred legs.[[/note]] About season eight she more often wears slacks, blouses and even jackets as she got a job as a pharmaceutical representative.

* SilentWhisper: Raj Koothrappali does this into Howard's ear every time he wants to talk but there's a woman in the room and he's not drunk. Howard translates. [[spoiler:No longer the case in Season 7 when Raj has developed enough to speak before women without needing a drink.]]
