Top Ten Most Awkward Moments On the Big Bang Theory

The Big Bang Theory is the show that we all love but is full of awkwardness; this list highlights the most awkward moments on the show.

The Top Ten

1 Sheldon's "Discussion" with Alex - "The Egg Salad Equivalency"

This was the scene that made "The Egg Salad Equivalency" my new favourite episode ever, surpassing "The Vengeance Formulation"

The most awkward episode to date

Alex: I have to go...
Sheldon: Well so does this fellow, but he can't leave without it burning like hot soup.


2 Sheldon Grabs Penny's Breast - "The Adhesive Duck Deficiency"

Of course this is a great and new twist.. Like Sheldon has never seen nor touched a breast before and wasn't sure what he had done.

This was funny because Sheldon had no idea what he was doing or touching. Awkward.

Eww I hate breasts, they're disgusting and I'm a male by the way.

3 The Public Debate - "The Love Car Displacement"
4 In Hospital - "The Robotic Manipulation"

A generally awkward episode

5 Shamy Analyse Penny's Sex Life - "The Robotic Manipulation"

Oh my God, I remember this hilarious moment!

6 Howard's Hallucination - "The Hot Troll Deviation"

That scene is so awful, yet completely hilarious! - PositronWildhawk
