Unborn Baby Proven to Be More Than a Clump of Cells on ‘Big Bang Theory’

Published on

CBS’s Big Bang Theory has kept the pro-life message going with the storyline of Bernadette’s pregnancy this season. This time, they focus on the baby’s development including how it already “hears voices.”

On Thursday’s episode “The Brain Bowl Incubation,” Sheldon (Jim Parsons) and Amy (Mayim Bialik) decide to combine their skin cells to form brain cells in a petri dish at the lab. Proud of their creation, Sheldon feels like a dad, going so far as to comparing their science experiment to Bernadette’s (Melissa Rauch) baby, much to her disapproval.

Amy: You know, most people don’t realize this technique has actually been around for a few years.

Bernadette: Still, I can’t believe you can turn ordinary skin cells into functioning brain cells.

Amy: Well, I turned this one into a functioning boyfriend, so sky’s the limit.

Sheldon: Look, look… Here I am standing next to the incubator. Uh, here is a microscopic view of the cells.

Bernadette: Look at that, put them in a tiny Flash T-shirt and it’s you.

Sheldon: Oh. Yeah, this little guy can already recognize electronically transmitted images 20% faster than any other sample in Amy’s lab.

Bernadette: I’m running out of ways to act excited.

Amy: So enough about us. How are things going with you?

Bernadette: Great, the doctor said the baby’s head is facing down now.

Amy: Good, you know, in case the exit isn’t clearly marked.

Sheldon: Yeah, I have to say, it is nice to share this experience with someone who’s on the same journey. Although right now ours is testing off the charts while yours is floating around in its own waste.

Bernadette: Are you actually comparing my human baby to your brain in a bowl?

Sheldon: Well, I didn’t make you waddle up four flights of stairs for the heck of it.

Bernadette: You do realize my baby has functioning organs and can recognize voices.

Sheldon: Yeah, but ours can recognize a specific data stream among background noise.

Bernadette: Mine has a fully developed immune system.

Sheldon: Ours doesn’t need an immune system because it lives in a state-of-the-art German incubator.

Amy: Sheldon, that’s enough.

Sheldon: Oh, yeah, no, fine. Let’s just agree that both creations are special in their own way and it is foolish to try and compare them.

Wow – speaking about the “human baby’s” development in such great detail is amazing: organs, immune system and sensory in the form of hearing. Way more than the clump of cells pro-choicers like to call pre-born babies. Meanwhile, Sheldon and Amy’s creation actually is a clump of cells.

Big Bang has brought up Bernadette’s baby time and time again in a positive, pro-life way. Glad to see they value the “life”– not the “choice” – growing inside her. Keep up the good work, CBS!
