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.

Until his HO gauge starter kit, Sheldon was all for O gauge or no gauge. See more
Sheldon tells Penny that the last piece of food, the "greng jai (or kreng jai) piece," is reserved for the most deserving member of the group. While the concept of greng jai is difficult to translate into western-world languages, this is far from the truth. Grang jai is the custom of observing, acknowledging, and respecting the feelings of others - something that Sheldon is incapable of doing. See more

Leonard, you may not have noticed, but I am being a delight here. And you're not holding up your end of the evening.
I'm sorry. The wedding just reminds me of my kind of-sort of-girlfriend 9000 miles away.

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.

I have long believed that we as human beings are genetically inclined to elevate and worship those of us we deem to be very beautiful or very talented. We do this because we are somehow comforted by our adoration. It makes us feel good. As children we sleep beneath the images of movie, TV, music and sports stars and dream about the mystery and grandeur of their lives. As adults, the posters come off the wall, only to be replaced by a steady, noxious stream of tabloid culture. But perhaps most enjoyable of all is watching the fall from grace. Nothing beats a good ol' public crucifixion. Especially when it's self-inflicted. My theory for why this is considered entertainment is, again, a genetic one. DNA, even if it's mediocre, wants to ensure its own survival. The existence of superior DNA is viewed as a threat. When beautiful and talented people screw up, we can't help but feel that this somehow improves the chances for our mediocre descendants to eat meat. In other words, evolution my ass. See more
