Storyline

After a group dinner at Leonard and Sheldon's apartment, Leonard and Amy are the unlikely pair left alone at the apartment as everyone else goes off for the evening. Despite it being a somewhat uncomfortable evening for Leonard, he agrees to accompany Amy to an upcoming wedding, she who refuses to take Sheldon based on a past incident. At the reception, Amy, who "whored" herself up to meet her perception of social convention, is the one of the two who tries to enjoy their time together in this social setting. Leonard ultimately appreciates Amy's attempts. But both Amy and Sheldon misinterpret Leonard's appreciation. Meanwhile, Howard tells a disbelieving Bernadette that he expects them to live with his mother in her house after they're married. After an argument, Bernadette at least agrees to go through a trial weekend at the Wolowitz house. And Sheldon is off in his own literally little world as he plays with his new HO model train set.

Trivia

This show signaled the first obvious sign regarding Sheldon's possible romantic feelings for Amy. When he asked Leonard how his night at the wedding was and Leonard explained that he never thought that he would have that much fun with Amy and added that she really knew how to help loosen up a guy and that his groin was a little worse for wear. In an apparent moment of jealousy, Sheldon judo-chopped him on the shoulder and said "She is not for you! Not for you!" See more »

Quotes

Amy Farrah Fowler: Leonard, you may not have noticed, but I am being a delight here. And you're not holding up your end of the evening.
Leonard Hofstadter: I'm sorry. The wedding just reminds me of my kind of-sort of-girlfriend 9000 miles away.
Amy Farrah Fowler: I have a kind-of sort-of boyfriend who's playing with a model train right now, you don't hear me bitching about it.

"The Pulled Groin Extrapolation" was another pretty funny ep of "The Big Bang Theory"
17 November 2011 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

In a nutshell about this season's ep of "The Big Bang Theory": Sheldon wants to stop at a train store and since Penny has to go to work, it's Raj driving him there as well as Howard and Bernadette to the movies. During the ride, Howard blurts out she's going to move in with his mother after the wedding which doesn't sit too well with Bern. But she eventually agrees to try it for a while. Meanwhile, Amy has stayed back at the apartment while Leonard tries to work on the computer. After some awkward talk, it seems Amy wants Leonard to be her date to a wedding since Sheldon doesn't behave himself well at those things, at least according to Amy. I'll stop there and say that while this ep wasn't as funny as the first two this season, it still had some moments such as Bernadette's impersonation of her future mother-in-law and Amy's characterization during the whole thing. So on that note, I rather still enjoyed "The Pulled Groin Extrapolation" ep of "The Big Bang Theory".
