Amy tries to close the door quietly, but she lets go of the handle too soon and the door slams mercilessly.
“Oops,” she giggles.
“Amy!” Sheldon calls her. He has entered the room and turned on the light, “It’s very late. What are you- You are drunk!” He realizes at last.
She bites her lips “No! I’ve just had a drink or two with the lab guys,” she says, “We found out how… wait, I know that.”
Sheldon raises his eyebrows, but Amy continues, “You know that! We discovered… the stuff in the brain that does that stuff, you know?” She makes a big smile and puppy eyes, and almost stumbles in her own legs.
He rushes to offer his support, but she refuses, “I don’t need it, I’m fine,” she insists.
“No, you are not,” Sheldon retorts, “You’d better admit it and let me help you.”
“No, no, I’m proving you I’m not drunk. I’m reciting you your wedding vows by heart!” She offers.
“My wedding vows?” Sheldon is surprised, “How can you…?”
Amy wiggles her hips with a naughty smile, “I peeked…”
Sheldon sighs, and moves to reach her. “I am greatly disappointed by you right now,” he says as he offers the hand again, “However, I’m going to help you undress and go to bed.”
“Ooh, you want to get me into bed!” Amy says with an attempt of seductive tone, “Oh, wait! We already sleep together. We’re getting married!” She exclaims then like she had just found out it.
Sheldon shakes his head, but he also smiles, amused. As far as he disapproves of her behaviour, he does enjoy her drunken candor.
“Yeah, we’re getting married,” he confirms, “so would you please trust your fiancé and let him bring you safely to bed?”
Amy melts in another big smile and nods, finally taking his hand. Sheldon helps her stand, but she immediately falls into his arms. He soon realizes there’s only a way to cut things short.
In one swift move, he picks her up. She quickly grabs his neck, and rests her head on his shoulder, “See, I am even training to carry you across the threshold on our first night…” Sheldon jokes.
Cautiously, he tries to move with her toward the bedroom. She closes her eyes, and murmurs, “I knew you could lift me like this…”
They arrive at the bed, and he gently lays her down. Amy has essentially fallen asleep, but she keeps talking, “… since the moment I first laid eyes on you, and this is the one thing I know with absolute certainty….”
“That’s right,” he says, starting to get her shoes off.
