** In "The Alien Parasite Hypothesis", Sheldon and Amy are performing a differential diagnosis to determine what had caused her reaction while she was out with Penny and Bernadette [[ItMakesSenseInContext (she met Zack and got turned on)]]. Aside from the fact that both of them are arguing what her problem could be, one will notice that [[Series/HouseMD they are using a whiteboard, and lupus is listed as one possible cause]].

** Shenny shippers were given another in Season 9, as "The Separation Oscillation" begins with Sheldon suggesting that Penny get even with Leonard by kissing someone else, then offering himself. The two lock lips in a '''HUGE''' kiss. But as it turns out, [[spoiler: it was AllJustADream]].

** In "The Gothowitz Deviation" (Season 3, episode 3), Penny asks Sheldon to dance with her. He replies with "Penny, while I subscribe to [[TheMultiverse the many worlds theory]] which posits the existence of an infinite number of Sheldons in an infinite number of universes, I assure you that in none of them am I dancing." In "The Agreement Dissection" (Season 4, episode 21), Sheldon reveals that he has been trained in dancing. "In the South, pre-adolescent children are forced through a process called cotillion, which indoctrinates them with all the social graces and dance skills needed to function in 18th century Vienna." He puuts his training in practice for a dance with Amy.

1 - he still could get picked for teams on his street. 2 - edit, don't contradict
** Made all the funnier by the fact that Sheldon ''never went'' to high school to begin with.

* RealSongThemeTune: Music/BarenakedLadies' "The History of Everything". ** Which was written for the show so not really this trope.

** In one episode, Sheldon sits out in the hall playing ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' on his laptop via {{emulation}} as he can't use the console in the apartment. The sound effects are entirely correct. However, he also mentions the his mother sent the memory card along with the console. The N64 did have memory cards, but they were only compatible with certain games. ''Mario 64'' was one that saved directly to the cartridge.

** There are several shout outs to ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}''. They range from the characters talking about watching the show to Leonard, as Howard puts it, "taking out his aggressions on innocent Cylons" (i.e. he destroys a Cylon action figure with a laser). Don't forget the Cylon Toast! Everyone loves Cylon Toast.

* ShownTheirWork: The show goes well out of its way to get the details of the science and tech stuff right, as well as generally listing actual things that geeks are into like ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}'' and ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}''. Not only that, they have an actual physicist, Dr. David Salzberg, on hand to fill in the correct dialogue and write appropriate diagrams and formulas on the white boards. In fact, almost any mention of high-level science, such as theoretical procedures in which the characters would either be versed or have read/heard about through peer-reviewed journals are written as ''Science To Come'' (or similar) in the script, awaiting Salzburg's insight in order to be replaced with something relevant and accurate. All of this leads to GeniusBonus. This includes:
