Episode Summary

Sheldon and Amy go on a trip to wine country with Howard and Bernadette. Penny and Leonard rush Raj's dog to the vet.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Loved It

    I think some people blew this episode way out of proportion. There were way too many people who were worried that Sheldon would become some sort of sex machine now that he likes kissing Amy. But come on it was one kiss! Sheldon will continue to take baby steps in the relationship and that's great because that's who he is. There was some general disappointment because on the show of all the characters Sheldon comes the closest to being asexual, but if you really watch the show you notice that's not how he identifies. Sheldon himself has said that sexual desire is a cross we all must bare (including himself).

    As for this episode. It was great and shocking and so so sweet. Sheldon and Amy both made concessions for each other and found out that they both enjoyed trying something new and Penny and Leonard proved what terrible parents they would make which is always good for a laugh. :)moreless
  • New developments DESPERATELY needed

    It may seem weird but I agree with "Finally" and "50bucks". Yes, "The show is becoming a little bit boring and repetitive", thus TBBT needs new developments, new plots and a new mix of character development. But, it does not need these developments in the traditional way as every other damned sitcom. Why can't you leave this boy-girl-crap out just this one time?

    You have had the best start with a show about weirdos why do have to turn into normal, boring or annoying people?

    Why does every sitcom revolve around the same topic? Love, love, loveit made TBBT special as it did not revolve around that all the time and if, it only did in a weird and twisted way. Now the "new developments" of the TBBT turn this show into a boring show like all the others.

    Writers seem to think this is an "evolution" for the show BUT IT'S NOT!

  • finally

    I disagree with 50bucks comment. This series desperately needs some growth, some character - development, some new plots. And in sitcoms that usually means relationships. Even Amy ain't gonna wait forever for Sheldon to grow up and become an adult. I liked this episode much more than recent ones. The show is becoming I say little bit boring and repetitive.
  • It's just wrong...

    Sorry guys, maybe I'll be one of the few that does not want Sheldon to turn into a lovey-dovey. To me that ruins everything!

    If I want love, sex, relationship blabla with 5% science I watch Grey's Anatomy. I find it wrong, wrong, wrong to see Smelldor kiss with "passion" - Uagh!
  • greatest episode ever!!

    i loved this episode, i was freaking out when sheldon and amy kiss :D

    i also would very much like to see raj and the hot vet to get together for the rest of the show. i see some every good moments coming our way.

    and this guy below (kiwitocome) is a sheldon in real life, so you all know what i mean :-) raj is absolutely hilarious!!

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Goof: At the end of the episode, Sheldon recounts that Amy's kiss tasted like the brownie they had for dessert on the train. However, abroad the train, it appears as if they ate a dessert with a crust, or pie.

    • Leonard suggests to Penny to make out on Sheldon's spot and Penny says that this was the least sexy thing she's ever heard, while on the 4th episode of the 3rd season, she said to Leonard "Wanna do something crazy? Let's make out on Sheldon's spot."

    • Amy mentions the train has an FA-4 locomotive, but the actual model of the locomotive that the Napa Valley Wine Train uses is FPA-4.
