Sheldon and Amy are finally back together after a difficult break. It seems like it's been forever since we've seen Amy looking truly happy, but take a look at her face in this photo. Things certainly have changed.
The moment is finally here! It's time for the guys to get their tickets to the new Star Wars movie, but will they be able to get them before they sell out? Also, how cool is it that you can buy movie tickets with an app on your phone?
