The Shiny Trinket Maneuver - S5-E12

Corrected entry: In 3-14 "The Einstein Approximation" Bernadette stated that she is able to easily handle children as her Mother ran an illegal day care centre in their basement. However, in this episode she states that she hates children because her mother worked and she had to bring up her siblings, and she cannot properly react to children. So which is it? Can't be both.

Correction: In 3-14 she says she can handle "stubborn children" and in 5-12 she refers to "little kids". Every parent will tell you there is a big difference in behavior in children at child-care age [i. e. Daycare children] and little kids [a little older]. It is easier to get them to do things when they are small but once they develop their "attitudes", it is very hard to get them to do what you want.


The Shiny Trinket Maneuver - S5-E12

Corrected entry: After Amy stalks off on Sheldon, Penny tells him off because she told him some good news about her paper being published, and he belittled her achievements while bigging up his own, trivial activities. She is very specific about what he did and why Amy reacted. How did she know all of this? She was nowhere near the table at the time and could not possibly have overheard their conversation. She might assume Amy is mad at Sheldon but she can't possibly know why.

Correction: Penny is behind them cleaning a table and you actually see her overhear what they are talking about.
