Emily Sweeney

Played by: Laura Spencer in The Big Bang Theory

Emily Sweeney (Laura Spencer): A dermatologist who initially contacts Raj through an online dating site. The reluctant Raj has Amy contact her as his wingman instead. Amy and Emily exchange emails and find they have a lot in common. They both went to Harvard, are doctors, and like crocheting and Chaucer. Emily doesn't like Raj's inability to correspond with her directly, and when Amy and Emily meet to have coffee, Raj barges in to show that he is not a passive guy. Emily calls him a weird guy with no boundaries and leaves. She also ditches Amy for their next get together. In "The Indecision Amalgamation", Raj meets Emily again and apologizes. She gives him another chance and agrees to go out to dinner with him. Later on, Raj finds out that his ex-girlfriend Lucy wants to see him again and he finds himself dating two women, although this does not bother Emily. In "The Relationship Diremption", Raj and Emily have dinner with Howard and Bernadette. Howard figures they should do it quickly because Raj is bound to mess up his relationship very quickly. Upon meeting Emily, Howard recognizes her because he had a blind date with Emily sometime near 2009 before he met Bernadette. He had a sick stomach, had to use the bathroom and clogged the toilet. Since he was too embarrassed to tell her, he escaped through the bathroom window. Emily reveals that she and her friends refer to Howard as "Clogzilla". In "The Anything Can Happen Recurrence", Raj and Howard watch the gore-fest "House of 1000 Corpses" because Emily wants to watch it with Raj. They are both turned off and wonder about someone who likes this type of movie. On their date, Raj tells Emily how he feels about it and she also wonders about someone who likes this film. She also admits that it turns her on, so Raj immediately starts it so they can watch it. In "The Gorilla Dissolution", Raj and Sheldon find Emily at the movies with another guy. Later she visits him to talk and reveals that the guy was her tattoo artist who had been asking her out for weeks and she did so just to end the obligation. She mentions a tattoo on her shoulder, one that is not on her shoulder and one that is REALLY not on her shoulder. Emily then spends the night and in the next episode, Raj reveals that he and Emily are now exclusive. Raj and Emily are still dating in season 8, and she is introduced to Leonard and Penny, the latter to which she is initially cold to. Emily later reveals that she is uncomfortable with the fact that Raj and Penny hooked up in "The Roommate Transmogrification". Emily and Penny later sit down to settle their differences; however after the meeting both women state that they hate one another. Source:
