When Sheldon couldn't understand how Leonard's name being dropped from the magazine article was a big deal, Amy used a familiar analogy to bring clarity to the situation. She said, "Remember that time you didn't get picked to pull the sword out of the rock at Disneyland, and they let that other kid do it?" Sheldon had an "Aha!" moment and responded with, "Poor Leonard."
