* As Sheldon sits alone listening to the Nobel Prize announcements, Older Sheldon narrates that he always felt alone. We then see a series of shots of children and what they are doing at the same time, gradually revealed to be [[spoiler:his future friends from ''Series/TheBigBangTheory''.]] Sheldon finishes his narration pointing out that he was glad he was wrong about being alone.
** Also heart-warming [[spoiler:in a meta sense as it aired right after ''The Big Bang Theory's'' finale, giving ''TBBT'' fans one last look at the other characters after saying goodbye almost an hour earlier (there was a half-hour behind the scenes special between the two)]]

Added DiffLines:

* Sheldon's relationship with his roommate Ricky is cute. He even leaves him an ''ComicBook/IronMan'' comic because Ricky compared the upcoming operation on his heart to Tony Stark's chest plate.

[[folder: Episode 14 - David, Goliath, and a Yoo-Hoo From the Back]]
* Mary and Missy are fighting over Missy stealing Meemaw's makeup for picture day. After showing her some old pictures of her mother, Meemaw tells Missy why Mary changed. It turns out Missy almost died at birth and Mary [[BargainWithHeaven prayed that if her daughter lived, she'd devote her own life to God.]] It has such an effect on Missy that she even hugs Mary goodbye in front of her friends.
* Mary has been sick of her children viewing her as the bad guy for enforcing boundaries. George and Meemaw both reassure her that she's not a bad mother.

* Mary and Georgie connect over their shared love of the movie Film/RoadHouse.''Film/RoadHouse''.


Added DiffLines:

* George helps Pastor Jeff put together a crib, which leads into a discussion about fatherhood and Jeff's fears about failing at the job and being restricted from cool activities. George tries to reassure him, and ultimately fires up his old motorcycle, allowing Jeff to do something cool before the baby arrives.

Added DiffLines:

* The senior docent is actually quite patient with Sheldon's InnocentlyInsensitive comments and overenthusiasm. He does ultimately fire him, but he tries first to tolerate him (even when Sheldon criticizes a brochure that he wrote in front of customers) and to explain gently what he's doing wrong.


Added DiffLines:


[[folder: Episode 5 - A Musty Crypt and a Stick to Pee On]]
* In the RV, Wayne tries to mediate between Mary and George and gets them to try a trick he and his wife use: saying something that they appreciate about each other. George tells Mary that he appreciates how she takes care of the house and the family, and Mary responds that she appreciates George's hard work and all the sacrifices he makes. Both are clearly touched by the other noticing their efforts.

[[folder: Episode 6 - Freshman Orientation and the Inventor of the Zipper]]
* Sheldon, worrying about making a good first impression during orientation, asks Missy which bow tie he should wear. Missy, despite having a dim view of Sheldon's dressing style, asks him to show her the options again and then offers a considered decision...and the advice that Sheldon shouldn't wear a bow tie.

[[folder:Episode 18 - The Wild and Woolly World of Nonlinear Dynamics]]
* Georgie making Mary some soup and toast after she and George had a fight. It was condensed soup and he didn't add water to it, but it was still a nice gesture on Georgie's part.
* Sheldon catches Missy running away. Rather than telling on her, he decides to go with her. Yes, she ripped up his autographed picture of Professor Proton. Yes, he said he hates her moments before. Yes, he's only doing so because Connie said it was a social obligation for him to protect his younger sister (by two minutes), but it's still quite sweet of Sheldon to wander into the woods at night with no adult supervision.
* Missy and Sheldon make peace with each other in the woods. Sheldon by giving Missy decent advice about not changing who she is just to please a boy and Missy by apologizing for tearing up his Professor Proton picture.

* Mary spends the whole episode angry when Mr. Lundy takes over her Hell House project when she asks for his help and he takes over the whole project, making the seven deadly sins look like something fun. She considers the night a failure despite the money earned for the church when nobody comes to the room based on Heaven to "be saved," until Veronica Duncan, Georgie's date, comes into the room and wants to change her life, having been deeply touched by the room of Lust. Sheldon's narration then says that Veronica went on to live a life devoted to god and help feed the poor, even helping her older sister, who she said previously had been arrested, start a literacy program for female inmates.
