I'm a bit puzzled at why they dubbed Amy's lines in this episode . . .
I didn't notice, I was too busy being embarrassed by the whole "nerds in public" scenario. I mean, really, a slurpee toss and someone yelling "Nerds!"? What, did they bring the writer of Weird Science out of suspended animation for the episode?
I think that was my favorite scene of the episode. Sheldon's speech was so poignant and moving, and then NERD! The timing was just perfect, I was laughing out loud for that one.

Re: The Big Bang Theory

I've seen the pilot episode for the first time, and I was surprised that it begins in a sperm bank with Leonard saying that Sheldon usually masturbates like a pro. In the later seasons, he is characterized as the type of asexual person that doesn't do that. He also seems to be more sociable.

It shows signs of the characters being turned into caricatures in the later seasons. Same thing happened in Two and a half Men. In the beginning, they were more or less believable people, but the more the show progressed, the more they got reduced to very simple character traits.

Sheldon turned really strange, really fast. In the second episode, he broke into Penny's apartment to clean, and in the fourth he went of the rails after being fired. I'd say the pilot is the fluke.

I enjoyed last night's christmas theme episode. The scenes with Sheldon talking from Texas were hilarious. And we got to see Penny in a bra.

I think that may have been the unaired pilot you saw, no? They changed Sheldon a bit for the series.

I remember there was a completely different girl next door, not Kaley/Penny.

They went to the sperm bank in the actual pilot.

The other girl actually moved into their apartment. Howard and Raj weren't there, but another girl was. Who Sheldon had sex with at one point.

Re: The Big Bang Theory

It's not unusual to have changes between Pilot and the rest of the show.. heck, sometimes they change actors.

With BBT the pilot had scenes where Sheldon tried to hit on Penny, masturbation etc. but they refocused and changed his character for the show and that's that.

I wouldn't put too much stock into it that they tweaked a few bits here and there especially if there was much time between pilot and green light for the whole show.

If I remember right they go to the sperm bank in both pilots. In the unaired one Sheldon has no problem donating and is made fun of by Leonard for bringing his own wanking material (big butt fetish magazines). In the aired one the now asexual Sheldon refuses to donate.

Not really, he refuses because he think they are comitting "genetic fraud". And Leonard calls him a "semi pro".

He can frame them next to his restraining orders from Leonard Nimoy and Stan Lee.
