“The Maternal Combustion” (The Big Bang Theory)
Winning a prestigious award for a revolutionary research paper should have been a joyous event, but for Leonard and Sheldon it proved to be quite stressful as they tried to convince their mothers to play nice with each other. While Dr. Beverly Hofstadter, a psychiatrist, and Mary Cooper disagreed on the roles science and religion should play in life, their biggest disagreement was centered around parenting.
After a massive blowout, the mothers learned there is no single correct parenting method, and that what matters is that they’re proud of their sons.
