The Pulled Groin Extrapolation (2011)

Type :   Production countries :  


Amy asks Leonard to accompany her to a friend's wedding as Sheldon is too immature to accompany her. At the last wedding they attended, he behaved like a child . When they are at the wedding, Leonard gets depressed, as he is reminded of Priya. Amy eventually cheers him up by telling him that her boyfriend is at home playing with model trains. Eventually, she convinces Leonard, who, according to himself, "is not much of a dancer", to go dancing with her (Amy's dancing skills have been shown in the episode "The Agreement Dissection"). He gets into it and at last finds himself able to have a good time, though he ends up pulling a muscle in his groin. Amy eases his pain by breaking the head off of a nearby swan ice sculpture and giving it to him, so he can cool his injury. When they come back, Leonard thanks her and, after inviting her in for tea, gives her a kiss on the cheek, which Amy believes is a clear sign of him falling in love with her. She immediately asks Penny for advice and then decides to send Leonard an email to tell him that she is not into him. Leonard describes the evening to Sheldon, who has become obsessed with smaller and smaller model railroad scales, as they are more fun. He inadvertently makes it sound like he and Amy had sex when mentioning that he had pulled his groin, prompting an unexpected jealous reaction from Sheldon, who hits him and tells him that "she is not for you!".

Bernadette becomes upset again when she and Howard start discussing where they are going to live in the future. Howard expresses his desire to have her move in with him and his mother, as Howard is accustomed to his mother doing all the work (an obligation that Bernadette rejected in the episode "The Cohabitation Formulation"). She is initially reluctant, but agrees to spend a weekend at Howard's house later for the purpose of trying the idea. She feels very uncomfortable during the stay, as Mrs. Wolowitz is very intrusive and doesn't give them any privacy. Furthermore, Howard acts childishly and even has his meat cut by his mother. The next morning, Bernadette and Mrs. Wolowitz make breakfast for Howard. When she brings it to his bed, she mentions that communication with his mother is tricky as they are "very different people". When she talks to Mrs. Wolowitz she also shouts and sounds just like her. In the end, Howard complains about having to cut his pancakes himself.

Title reference: Sheldon hitting Leonard after misinterpreting Leonard's pulled groin as a metaphor for sex.
