The Rhinitis Revelation (2011)

Type :   Production countries :  


Sheldon's mother, Mary , has come to visit from her home in Texas. He is excited and plans to get her to cook some of his favorite food and attend a lecture of 2011 Nobel Prize laureate Saul Perlmutter with him. Leonard offers instead to take her out to dinner. Mrs. Cooper also opts to go sightseeing with the group rather than visiting the lecture with her son. Sheldon becomes jealous and is angry that she is ignoring him and doesn't cater to his demands. After an argument with his mother, he takes Amy to the lecture. After they come back to Amy's apartment, she informs him that, while he is a genius, his emotional reactions to his mother's ignoring him are no different from that of any other human being. Amy also points out that the less intelligent might be able to handle their emotions better by not overthinking them. Sheldon, after sitting out in the rain, returns home soaked and with a bad cold, prompting his mother to immediately ignore the others and focus on him. When he is in bed and once again demands that she sings "Soft Kitty" to him, they are interrupted by Leonard halfway through the song. Sheldon then makes her start over, causing his mother to regret once again that she didn't take Sheldon to a "follow-up" sanity test with a psychiatric specialist in Houston many years ago.

Recurring character: Laurie Metcalf as Mary Cooper

Title reference: Sheldon comes down with a case of Rhinitis after discovering the truth of his emotional development.
