The Big Bang Theory fans will remember the Sheldon scene in the final episode entitled “The Stockholm Syndrome” where Sheldon (played by Jim Parsons) took to the auditorium to present his meticulously crafted speech, thanking himself for winning the Nobel Prize.
However, when the moment comes Sheldon seems to adopt a sense of social awareness, coming to the realisation his friends played big part in his achievements.
He went on to thank his chosen family an his “two dearest friends in the world” Penny (Kaley Cuoco) and Leonard (Johnny Galecki).
Sheldon said: “I was under a misapprehension that my accomplishments were mine alone.”
“Nothing could be further from the truth,” he acknowledged.
“I have been encouraged, sustained, inspired and tolerated not only by my wife but by the greatest group of friends anyone ever had.
“I apologise if I haven’t been the friend you deserve. But I want you to know in my way, I love you all. And I love you [Amy].”
In an interview with TV Insider, director Mark Cendrowski recently spoke out about the emotional speech, revealing it was one of the scenes that stood out most to him throughout the entire series.
The director said: “the last scene in the auditorium when Sheldon thanks everybody is certainly great.
“That was a complicated, big scene to shoot, with over 200 extras and having everybody dressed and everything else.”

The director seems to favour the Sheldon and and Amy (Mayim Bialik) scenes as he named another emotive scene that stood out the most.
Mark added: “I loved one of the scenes before when Sheldon and Amy are together in the room getting ready and Sheldon is upset that his friends are being petty about things and Amy calls him on it and says, ‘It’s your fault.’
“The way it lands, it’s just a short scene between the two of them, but they played it beautifully and I just thought, that’s what the series is about.
“If you didn’t feel something, you did not care about these characters at all.
Moreover, the final scenes seemed to be the most memorable between cast and crew alike as they watched the final scene back as a group.
Mark continued: “The last scene we had to show the audience… of them receiving their medals was a playback.
“After we shot the last live scene in front of the audience, gathering the entire cast around, the entire writing staff, all the producers and the crew, sitting around those monitors to watch the very last scene together, as a family, was really something special.
With the show’s usual filming time just around the corner, this is bound to be a difficult month for the show’s cast and creators.
However, this is not the last fans will see of their favourite character’s as their stories are set to continue in a young sheldon crossover where we meet younger versions of Amy Leonard, Penny and more.
The Big Bang Theory season 12 is available on CBS and All4.
