Penny Brings Gifts (The Big Bang Theory)
The Big Bang Theory, essentially about a bunch of science nerds, has been the kind of success many could not have imagined. Those characters have molded the affections of its audience over the years, and so one Christmas moment from the show really struck a chord with us. As Penny arrives to hand out gifts, Sheldon is as cynical and rigid as ever. Although he snootily claims it, he is indeed not prepared for Penny has to offer – in fact she almost breaks him. His reaction to the incredible gift and gesture from Penny is as emotive as it is funny. Is this the first tie Sheldon participates in a hug? Anyway, to say he is grateful is an under-statement. One of the show’s best moments, period.
