The Big Bang Theory - Episode 5.10 -

DVD boxed set of The Big Bang Theory - Season 5

When it seems that Amy is being courted by yet another geek, Sheldon must decide how committed he is to his sort-of relationship with her.


The comic book store owner Stuart seems interested in asking Amy out. He asks Leonard to check if this would be okay with Sheldon, who dismisses the notion that Amy would be interested in Stuart. When Stuart and Amy do begin going out, it calls into question Sheldon's stance on their relationship, forcing him to finally categorize her as his girlfriend ... complete with a Relationship Agreement.

This Episode's Science

Aside from a couple of references to the Nobel Prize, this episode was particularly light on the science.
