* SpoiledBrat: Sheldon's entire strategy in life is to whine and pitch a bitch fit until everyone gives him what he wants in exchange for some peace. Rule of Funny is the only reason they haven't pinned him down and cut out his tongue.

** In ''The Holographic Excitation'', there is a blatant shout-out to Sir Terry Pratchett's ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' books. Specifically, the ''Discworld/TheScienceOfDiscworld'' series, co-authored with prominent British scientists, in which Pratchett's fantasy world is used to mirror and illustrate developing scientific thought. In the books, the wizards of Unseen University (among them a rather nerdy type with glasses who affects a big baggy parka) accidentally create a bizarre pocket universe centered on a spherical world which orbits its sun. Stuck for what to do with it, it ends up gathering dust inside a protective glass sphere on somebody's desk. Meanwhile a geeky glasses-wearing scientist in a parka fires up holograms of Earth, planets and solar system to please his girlfriend. Leonard speculates that everything might just be one giant information-gathering hologram, being read by intelligences an unguessable distance away... The creation of the pocket universe in the Discworld -- including Planet Earth -- was done with the specific intention of ''averting'' a seriously Big Bang, by diverting a lot of dangerously destructive energy down a harmless path...
** One of the authors of ''Discworld/TheScienceOfDiscworld'', Professor Jack Cohen, is well-known in US academic circles. In one of the books he explains the torrid time he had trying to convince a hostile audience of the truth of evolutionary theory. He was in East Texas at the time getting heckled by Creationists. ''The Science of Discworld'' books -- especially the second -- are peppered with "common ground" references to people, science and events in science also covered in ''TBBT''. These occur so often that beyond all reasonable expectation of coincidence.

*** His idiosyncratic door knocking, three sets of three knocks, with the name of the person on the other side between each knock. And when he does it to Penny, her responses to such. Notable examples of this are when Penny turns it into a door knocking war (repeating his knocking pattern from the other side of the door and saying his name), another time interjecting a cheerleader-ish "Who do we love?" between the knocks and "Penny," and when Sheldon knocks as TheFlash. Also when he's inside Amy's apartment, knocking while she's in the hall.
