"Family Talk" is the tenth episode of the season 10 fan suggested episodes made by HarryPotter394.


The gang gets together to discuss their families.


The 10 friends are all in 4A, eating dinner and are talking. Sheldon starts talking about genealogy and how he wonders if there are any celebrities he is descended from. He then asks the other gang, if they have ever wondered... and they never have wondered about their own genealogies. Sheldon suggests that they start a group talk about their own families and childhoods and everyone agrees.

The next day, at 4A, everyone gathers round to start the discussion. Sheldon begins with his family talk and then allows Leonard, then Amy, then, Penny, then Raj, then Bernadette, then Howard, then Stuart, then Emily and finally Alex to talk about their families. The one with the most terrible family gets a lot of hugs, sympathy and sorrow while the one with the most wonderful family gets a lot of jealousy. By the end of the discussion, it turns Leonard is the one with the most terrible family and Sheldon is the one with the best family. A majority of the gang had the feeling that Leonard would be the one with the terrible family and childhood, knowing his past. And most of the gang knew that Sheldon had a wonderful family and childhood. And there is a small fight between Penny, Bernadette, Amy, Stuart, Emily and Alex and Howard, Raj and Sheldon about Leonard's family and past where the latter three are severely reprimanded by the former six for being unhelpful and rude to Leonard.

Howard and Raj feel remorseful about their attitude and they apologize to Leonard and they will always help him with family issues. Sheldon, however, is not happy as he wishes he had Leonard's childhood. Bernadette tells him no one cares about that, but the fact that Leonard's mother is the biggest bitch on thee planet. Those words infuriate Sheldon and he tries to talk back to Bernadette, but she glares at him in a scary way and tells him that nobody in the group except for him likes Leonard's mother, and so he decides to shut up and back off, and Amy tells him to be careful or his mother would be called. Sheldon agrees.

Later, they decide to search through the Internet and through genealogy apps to see if they can do traces and find out what ancestors they may have.
