Stephen Hawking, Wil Wheaton and more gather for this special occasion.
It was the 200th episode of CBS' 'The Big Bang Theory' last night (February 25th 2016) and, as part of this milestone celebration, we got to experience Sheldon Cooper's first ever adult birthday party. It was an episode that really showed how far he's come as a human being.
'The Big Bang Theory' celebrates 200th episode with Sheldon's birthday
Sheldon (played by Jim Parsons) has changed a lot over the last nine years. Not only is he in a long-term relationship, but he's finally given Amy Farrah-Fowler the intimacy she's been waiting so long for and he's learnt a lot about proper social interaction. He's resolved long-held feuds (Wil Wheaton) and worn some epic T-shirts, but the 200th episode was just a little bit different.

The heirs to a New Hampshire teacher, who wrote a poem about a "soft kitty” claim the show is violating their copyrights.
‘The Big Bang Theory’ and network CBS are being sued by the heirs to a New Hampshire teacher over the ‘soft kitty’ song featured in the show. The daughters of Edith Newlin, who wrote a poem about a "soft kitty” in the 1930s, claim the show is violating their copyrights by using the lyrics.
‘The Big Bang Theory’ is facing legal issues over its ‘Soft Kitty’ song.
Fox News reports that the lawsuit claims the show used lyrics written by Newlin without buying the rights. It claims that in 2007, Warner Bros. Entertainment and the show's other producers sought permission to use the poem’s lyrics from Willis Music Co., a Kentucky-based company that had published them in a book called Songs for the Nursery School.
This relationship finally takes the next step.
If you thought the most exciting moment of 2015 was going to be watching 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens', you'd be totally wrong. In fact, the most significant moment of 'The Big Bang Theory' so far probably tops even that. Sheldon Cooper has finally relinquished his virginity. And it's perfect.
TV's most adorable couple finally get it on
For this socially awkward, genius physicist played by Jim Parsons, intimacy and romance has always been a huge problem. Girlfriend Amy Farrah Fowler is a little more into those areas, but her patience over her five-year relationship with Sheldon has been remarkable; content with holding hands, infrequent hugs and occasional brief kisses, she deserved a little more passion from her long-term boyfriend.
Bazinga! Everything Sheldon says is a Best Quote.

But since he embarked on a relationship with Amy Farrah Fowler, fans have been willing him to break one of his own rules.

The Baldwins appear to be on good terms with the photographers, as Hilaria shakes one of their hands and Alec asks them if someone he knows is about. He is later seen taking photos of the paparazzi with his phone.
