Storyline

When Stuart meets Amy as she accompanies Sheldon to the comic book store, Stuart feels they had a moment. As such, Stuart wants to ask her out on a date. Not knowing what Amy's relationship status with Sheldon is, Stuart asks Leonard to ask Sheldon if it's OK for him to ask her out. Sheldon's ultimate response is that Amy is not his possession, so she is free to do whatever she wants. In reality, Sheldon's indirect allowance for Amy to date Stuart is only in the belief that Amy has no interest in Stuart. Sheldon's wrong as Amy does agree to go out with Stuart. Sheldon has to figure out what his true feelings for Amy are, and if they are in the realm of boyfriend/girlfriend, he has to figure out what to do to get her back. Written by Huggo

Quotes

Sheldon Cooper: I know what this is about. Given the professional standstill you're at, you're wondering if this is the appropriate time to abandon your research and focus on teaching. Yes! And if I may suggest, consider changing discipline, to the humanities or perhaps history. One of the advantages of teaching history is that you don't have to create things, you know, you just have to remember stuffs that happened and then parrot it back. You can have fun with that.

Crazy Credits

CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #367 Among the team of superheroes, his power was the least envied. As The Human Sponge, he had the ability to absorb the emotions of people nearby and make them his own - to the point of actually forgetting that what he was feeling did not originate with him. While his fellow crime fighters fought evil by hurling bolts of lightning or with amazing displays of strength, The Human Sponge could only sit next to the villain o' the day and soak up his festering rage. Needless to say, when the weary band of caped crusaders returned to their secret lair, Sponge was not very good company. There were even private discussions of replacing him with Paper Towel Man (who had the same super power, but was disposable). Thankfully, the problem was solved when Jesus joined the team. From that day on, The Human Sponge was just a sweetie... except around money-lenders. Then he could be kind of a dick. See more »

See Sheldon get jealous in his own way in "The Flaming Spittoon Acquisition" ep of "The Big Bang Theory"
24 November 2011 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Amy goes with the guys to the comic book store though she's not impressed with the selection and thought Sheldon should pick a better hobby like frequenting an opium den or killing another human for sport. Shop proprietor Stuart sees Amy and wants to date her so he asks Leonard to see if Sheldon approves. When he hears of this, Sheldon condescendingly seems to not mind though it becomes obvious later on. I'll just stop there and just say how funny the whole thing was especially when Sheldon talks to Penny about it. Oh, and the discussion between Leonard, Howard, and Raj about a certain card game also gets some funny talks about how ridiculous certain developments are. So on that note, "The Flaming Spittoon Acquisition" is another very worthy ep of "The Big Bang Theory".
