If Amy has no sexuality to exploit, then Sheldon had to feel in need sexual release. when he happened to come across Raj's mother. i totally agree with Sheldon

I am a HUGE fan of BIG BANG THEORY! Sheldon is my main reason for watching aside from the hilarious antics of ALL the characters!! I agree w/ another poster that this show is 2nd ONLY to Seinfeld...and nothing else comes even close!! My only problem is I can't get enough!! Thank u so much not only for a truly funny show that makes my side ache from laughing my hind end off, but also for finding a cast that is magical when on stage together! Kudos!!

Professor Proton should get tenure. That way it pleases everybody and a good excuse to get Mr Bob back.

Wonderful show. Hope the people incapable of understanding don't cause it to suffer the same fate as Heroes. That too was a good show but fans caused it's demise.
