The Big Bang Theory

The Meemaw Materialisation

Series 9 - Episode 14 The Meemaw Materialisation



“Oh you are going to love her; she is the kindest, sweetest woman you’ll ever meet,” says Sheldon of his legendary “Meemaw” (played by the wonderfully named June Squibb). Unfortunately, his grandma’s visit isn’t the peaches-and-cream reunion he’d hoped for. She’s here to pass judgement on Sheldon’s girlfriend Amy – and takes against her immediately.

Elsewhere, the writers exploit Raj’s apparently lukewarm relationship with Emily by having him meet another woman. Claire (Alessandra Torresani) wants to pick his scientific brains for a sci-script she’s working on, but is Raj rather too fond of her?

More of a holding episode than anything else, The Meemaw Materialisation does at least have one revelation.


Sheldon's grandmother, known as Meemaw, arrives in Pasadena to visit, but his excitement at her arrival quickly gives way to discomfort when she clashes with Amy. Meanwhile, Raj finds himself drawn to an ambitious female screenwriter he meets at the comic-book store, but Bernadette angrily reminds him he already has a girlfriend. Comedy, guest starring June Squibb.
