Sheldon finally revealed the disturbing background to this oddity, but Amy never seemed to care about the beatings that bothered so many.
Amy jokingly mentioned that she loved Sheldon’s love of rehearsal because she hoped it would be put to “good use one day”. Amy often joked about sex (or lack thereof) with Sheldon, so this quote perfectly described her character.

‘The Date Night variable’
Penny was thrown into a loop when Leonard proposed to her while having sex. If Leonard knew Penny, he would have known that Penny didn’t want to be engaged, let alone on a date night.

According to her, if Sheldon talked to her in bed, her “ovaries would cling to him.” This quote screamed Amy’s character because of her undying love for Sheldon and because in that moment she would do anything to sleep with him.
