** The recurring joke of Sheldon making fun of Howard for being "only" an engineer at NASA becomes this when Sheldon's actor, Jim Parsons, ''plays a lead engineer at NASA'' in the 2017 film ''Film/HiddenFigures''.

** In season two, Sheldon was having a hard time getting rid of {{Yandere Ramona}}, so he went to Penny for advice. When she wondered why, Sheldon stated that due to "man after man leaving her apartment", she seemed to be an expert at ending relationships. Come season nine, when it's revealed that someone did go to Penny for advice on ending relationships: [[spoiler: Amy!]] [[FridgeBrilliance It also casts Penny's earlier interactions with Sheldon in the eighth season finale in a new light: she was subtly warning him not to get Amy to end things.]]

** This was most likely the point of their plot of the episode, but Bernadette ''really'' showed off her bitch tendencies in the episode where she and Howard were going to sell things from his house after his mother passed away and they moved into her house. They find Howard's life-sized TARDIS police box prop replica in the backyard shed. While no one explicitly takes either one of their sides outside of the Ping Pong match that ensues, Bernadette really comes off as a cold-hearted bitch for trying to sell it, even though Howard still wanted it for sentimental reasons, since he's a fan of the show it comes from, Series/DoctorWho. She also had been, for some reason, developing a growing resentment towards his more geeky tendencies in a more passive aggressive manner, but this was one of the first overt instances of this, despite not a lot of establishment of it prior. She tries to get rid of a prop replica TARDIS...on a show where the main male characters are geeks and the audience is made up of similar-minded people. Granted, Bernadette's not stated to be in the right, but she treats Howard like he's wrong for wanting to keep it. They didn't even need to have it out in the open, it could've stayed where it is, or be moved to the basement, or something. It's even more awful when no one calls Bernadette out on the blatant ignoring of Howard's feelings. This isn't an instance where he acts like a child either. He didn't do anything to deserve such harsh treatment. The show seems to have a lot of problems with Bernadette in this area in the later seasons. She's justified when Howard overtly acts like a baby/child, but there's really no reason she couldn't let him have things to show what he's a fan of.

** Penny's last name being Queen is common in fanfics, possibly due to her VideoGames/AgeOfConan name being Queen Penelope
* FreudWasRight: The light-stick size duel between Sheldon and Leonard. Big time.

*** BothSidesHaveAPoint: They didnít falsify the data, they merely gave Sheldon the answers he wanted so that he would leave them alone while they worked on the original experiment which yielded no results. This was the data that was given to the university. All Sheldon did was send an email stating that he had proven string theory, not the data itself. While it was wrong for them to have waited so long to tell him, the only consequence he suffered was embarrassment, nothing else, and the only reason it was just him was because he was trying to take all credit. Everyone was at fault here, Sheldon for taking his usual personality up to eleven because he wasnít getting the data he wanted (and presumably not double checking the data), and the guys for both distracting him with falsified data and waiting so long to tell him they did this. It wasnít as bad as Sheldon made it out to be; all he suffered personally was embarrassment while the university just had to admit that the theory didnít pan out, which wouldnít be that big a deal as scientists get negative results all the time. Also, Sheldon loses a lot of sympathy points given that he later intentionally set back Howardís career with much greater STATED consequences.



*** It was ultimately Leonardís decision who he decides to take as the university, not Sheldon, asked him to fill in for Professor Norton. Also Sheldon was never presented as wrong for wanting to go, merely the extremes he took to get his way; he was even the first person Leonard went to when Penny became sick.



** Thing is, even when the earlier seasons had romantic plots, they were always in the background, or weren't more important than the more geeky/nerdy stuff the guys were doing. Now, it's switched around so the romance plots are front and center while the other plots are, mostly, playing second fiddle. This is where the distinction lies for why people feel the show has changed, not for the better, and has just become another ordinary sitcom. I mean, think about it. Unless you got into the show from watching reruns of the earlier seasons, what's there to get into now? What makes the show stand out? Not much. It now feels like ''Series/MikeAndMolly'', but with geeks and smart people rather than the people seen in that show, for the most part.

** Near the end of "The Engagement Reaction," Bernadette berates Howard for thinking that his mother had suffered a heart attack on hearing the news that the two were engaged, when in fact she actually passed out from food poisoning and it was purely coincidental that this happened at the exact time Howard told her about the engagement. One can hardly blame Howard for not working out that such an absurdly improbable coincidence had taken place -- especially seeing how his mother was locked in the bathroom, and Howard was too much of a weakling to break down the door -- yet Bernadette is portrayed as being completely right to yell at him.

One can hardly blame While Howard was perhaps a little tactless into jumping straight to the assumption that it was a heart attack instead of his mother simply passing out from shock, and his inability to break down the bathroom door indicates that he should add a little muscle, Bernadette is portrayed as being completely right to yell at him for not working out that such an absurdly improbable coincidence had taken place -- especially seeing how his mother was locked in the bathroom, and Howard was too much of a weakling to break down the door -- yet Bernadette is portrayed as being completely right to yell at him.place.

* LoveItOrHateIt: The whole show is this. Despite being one of the most popular current sitcoms on TV, there is quite a bit of vocal hatred for the show.
