Episode 11 - Summer Sausage, a Pocket Poncho, and Tony Danza When Missy insists that her father take her to \"the fanciest restaurant in Texas: Red Lobster\", and puts on a princess outfit for her night out. Their waiter very smoothly plays along with her fine dining fantasy, leaving her genuinely dazzled by the experience. After George comes around to Missy's side of the table to show her how to eat her lobster, she asks him to stay next to her when he starts to return to his seat. And this is after George and Mary had discussed that George isn't as close to Missy as he is to his sons. Episode 12 - Vanilla Ice Cream, Gentlemen Callers, and a Dinette Set The very last line of this episode reveals that Sheldon and Amy go on to have their own children. Episode 14 - Potato Salad, a Broomstick, and Dad's Whiskey Mary gets an offer to work for the church, but has reservations when she realizes that no one will be there to watch the children. Both George and Meemaw encourage her to take the job, assuring her that the kids should be fine if home alone. Sheldon and Missy get along remarkably well together. When Missy pulls a splinter from Sheldon's finger, he is genuinely impressed with her MacGyvering (even if he can't resist giving himself credit for being brave Episode 18 - A Mother, a Child, and a Blue Man's Backside When the tornado hits, the entire family huddles in the bathroom together. Missy and Sheldon are with Mary in the bathtub (which is the safest place to be), while George Sr. and Georgie are on the toilet. After having spent the majority of the episode putting Georgie down, Meemaw comes over to hold him when Georgie admits that he's scared that the tornado might hit them. When the storm has passed and Meemaw goes to check her own home for damage, Georgie immediately offers to go with her. After his father calls him out for not doing his cores, it's quite sweet that Georgie tries to prove him wrong, even if he doesn't exactly go about it in the right way. He clearly thinks a lot of his father. Sheldon wordlessly giving his mother a hug after the tornado.
Episode 16 - A Loaf of Bread and a Grand Old Flag Sheldon's support of communism has resulted in the entire Cooper family being persecuted. One moment that sticks out is Georgie Eating Lunch Alone, until Veronica sits down with him. She knows that sitting with Georgie will tarnish her reputation and that Georgie wants more from her than just friendship, but she chooses to do so anyway, since she's smart enough to know it's just a misunderstanding. Episode 17 - Albert Einstein and the Story of Another Mary Once George finds out Mary is pregnant, he goes to Principal Petersen to ask for a raise, and Tom gladly gives it to him. Even after Mary miscarries and George says he doesn't need the raise anymore, Tom still gives it to him. George is also supportive, if understandably a bit shaken up, throughout the ordeal, as is Connie. The latter even refrains from saying anything nasty about George at the beginning. It's also nice that Mary and George are intimate on what's implied to be a fairly regular basis, given how rocky their relationship is sometimes portrayed as. Episode 20 - A Proposal and a Popsicle Stick Cross Georgie goes above and beyond to clean out his room so Veronica can stay there; to the extent of fishing out his secret porn stash and even throwing away some of his clothes. While it's obvious that he's doing it for certain reasons, he never once pressures Veronica into anything, he just simply asks if he can spend some time with her. Veronica is wonderful with both Sheldon and Missy. She accepts Sheldon's bathroom schedule, and kindly answers his difficult questions about her personal life. She then takes the often neglected Missy out to get milkshakes, giving her some much needed one-on-one attention. When Veronica's mother's boyfriend Clint shows up to force Veronica to come home, Georgie immediately steps between them and stands up for her. When things turn nasty, George Sr. doesn't hesitate to step in, especially when Clint grabs Georgie by the shirt. George Sr. then calmly asks Veronica if she wants to go with Clint, and when she says no, he ends up punching Clint in the face when he refuses to leave her alone. Episode 21 - A Broken Heart and a Crock Monster Georgie is surprisingly supportive of Pastor Jeff, offering up his room so Jeff could spend the night away from his wife. And then Georgie goes to church the next Sunday so that he can \"support [his] pal\". The subplot of Sheldon and Missy teaming together to collect donations for the church. It's one of the few times that Missy and Sheldon get along without bickering. And Sheldon is an atheist, so it's that much sweeter that he is more than willing to help his mother out with her church duties despite his aversion to her beliefs. Episode 22 A Swedish Science Thing and the Equation for Toast As Sheldon sits alone listening to the Nobel Prize announcements, Older Sheldon narrates that he always felt alone. We then see a series of shots of children and what they are doing at the same time, gradually revealed to be his future friends from The Big Bang Theory. Sheldon finishes his narration pointing out that he was glad he was wrong about being alone. Also heart-warming in a meta sense as it aired right after The Big Bang Theory's finale, giving TBBT fans one last look at the other characters after saying goodbye almost an hour earlier (there was a half-hour behind the scenes special between the two) Season 3 Episode 2 - A Broom Closet and Satan's Monopoly Board Coach Wilkins talking about how close he and his wife are is fairly touching. George realizing that he's been taking his wife for granted and takes Mary out to dinner. Missy tells a lie to Pastor Jeff when he calls looking for Mary (when Jeff asks her what she's doing, she says she's watching TV when in reality, she was playing with a Ouija Board). She feels incredibly guilty about it and is afraid she'll go to Hell for lying to a pastor. She immediately calls Jeff back to confess. Jeff gently assures Missy that she's not going to Hell and that she has been forgiven. Robin asking Pastor Jeff to marry her. Episode 3 - An Entrepreneurialist and a Swat on the Bottom Georgie buys a $100 necklace for Veronica with the money he made selling candy. Veronica turns it down because she's uncomfortable accepting a gift that expensive. Later on, he leaves another one on her car that he made out of the candy. A big smile forms when she opens it. Episode 4 - Hobbitses, Physicses and a Ball with Zip George spends the episode teaching Missy how to play baseball to impress a boy, and she shows talent for pitching. When she's devastated to learn the boy likes another girl, George comforts her as best he can. Afterwards, they play catch just for the sake of it. Episode 6 - A Parasol and a Hell of an Arm Sheldon's advice to Missy may be small, but nonetheless encouraging.Sheldon: Missy Missy: What Sheldon: Do good baseball. This puts a smile on her face. Episode 9 - A Party Invitation, Football Grapes and an Earth Chicken Sheldon dresses up and pretends to be Spock to attend Billy Sparks' birthday party, and Billy shows interest in Sheldon's role-play, even if the long words fly over his head. Despite Mrs. Sparks' chagrin that the boys weren't engaging in \"normal\" activities, the two of them genuinely get along and have fun...until the chicken poops on Sheldon. Mary and Brenda coming to terms, when Mary admits that it was wrong of her to force Sheldon to come to the party (for both boys) and Brenda shows some sympathy for how isolated Mary feels her son is, while finally acknowledging Billy's own eccentricity. Episode 12 - Body Glitter and a Mall Safety Kit Sheldon willingly listens to Paige's troubles. Keep in mind that Sheldon doesn't like Paige very much and she had earlier placed stolen body glitter in his backpack at the mall (which, thankfully, no one gets in trouble for), yet he still recognizes that Paige needs help. He also offers her a hot beverage to comfort her, something that would be a staple of Sheldon's character in The Big Bang Theory. Georgie offering to pay to have the A/C in George's truck fixed. Sure, he's doing it to ease his own discomfort, and George's pride stopped him from accepting it, but it was still a nice gesture. Georgie even asks if his dad seriously is proud of him getting a job, why he can't use the money to help. It also provides a glimpse into the future, since The Big Bang Theory reveals that Georgie was the one to support his family after his father died. After Wayne points out that kids need to know their parents are proud of them, George tries to express his pride to his sons, even though it's not easy for him. It doesn't go so well with Georgie, but Sheldon treasures his dad complimenting him after he makes Paige a hot beverage. Episode 13 - Contracts, Rules and a Little Bit of Pig Brains Missy crying during the baseball game, worried that she's going to cost her team the game and everyone will hate her if the opposing batter hits the ball. With a Motivational Lie from Coach Ballard, she pitches and the boy strikes out, ensuring a victory. George nearly cancels a camping weekend he wanted to go on when he gets reminded that he had a previous appointment with Dr. Sturgis. He also tries to control Dale's constantly insulting behavior. Episode 14 - A Slump, a Cross and Roadside Gravel Seeing Sheldon and Georgie work together on a project is a really nice touch. Epi
