Sheldon's way too in love with himself to even pick up stuff like that even from his geeky shows/movies.

Plus, he probably tunes out a lot of the mushy relationship-oriented content ....

Sci fi TV shows haven't been exactly rife with successful adult relationships for Sheldon to use as examples.

I liked Wil Wheaton's house number

Sheldon is really a douchebag to Amy. I know he's unaware of how people react to his actions, but surely he's picked some stuff up from tv shows at least.
I actually thought that Amy was terrible and that Sheldon had no obligation to stand up for her in a situation that she created.

Agreed. Being the cause of the problem and then expecting Sheldon to take her side just because she's his girlfriend is incredibly immature. She was the one who should have been apologizing (to both Sheldon and Wil), not Sheldon.

Because nobody mentioned it yet.

Wil was wearing a The Guild t-shirt promoting a web show about a gamer's guild on the Geek & Sundry channel on YouTube where he also hosts his own web show TableTop.
I highly recommend both.

The Wolowitz actor incidentally had a cameo in The Guild in an earlier season which made Wil wearing that shirt a bit meta.

Yeah and a normal boyfriend would have taken her to task for her behaviour in a civil manner.. maybe it would have led to a fight if Amy still insists she's right but you can't avoid all fights.

With Big Bang of course it's being played to comedic effect by making Sheldon totally clueless about applied social interaction (he could talk all day about cultural and social habits but applying it is beyond him).

Penny was pretty evil this episode slipping Sheldon Long island Ice Tea's And the way Sheldon chugged them down made me cringe and look forward to the next scenes.. Sheldon/Jim Parsons plays a pretty funny drunk.

For a while i even expected it would lead to drunken sex between Sheldon and Amy when he came to her place to apologize.

I've only had a Long island ice tea once, not much of a drinker, but it did not go down smooth.

Yeah there's no way you can drink a Long Island Ice Tea like that, yet alone ask for another one directly after.

You guys need a new bartender. A good Long Island Ice Tea can go down like water. Very easy to drink too many of them.

In fact, that's part of the joke. Long Islands (when mixed correctly) really do taste suspiciously close to actual ice tea.
