Sheldon and Amy's wedding is just days away, with all their friends handling everything for them so that they can focus on what they need to. Something unexpected happens to Howard which affects the wedding in a way that Howard hopes will please Sheldon, but may irk someone else with a key role in the wedding. Much of what the friends need to do is to attend to the needs of the Coopers and the Fowlers who are all arriving from out of town. Those needs are great, especially by Mrs. Cooper and Mrs. Fowler, their wants which may threaten to overtake the festivities. Meanwhile, Sheldon and Amy can only think of something else, all stemming from Amy's comment to Sheldon that in tying his bow tie, it should be asymmetrical and not symmetrical like he is trying to tie it.
Did You Know?
The running gag of people talking to Mr. Fowler, only for Mrs. Fowler to cut him off before he can speak, is an in-joke to Teller
's magic/comedy act with Penn Jillette
; Jillette is the more loquacious of the two, and Teller rarely, if ever, speaks. His silence stems from his youth when he performed at college frat parties; he found that by refraining from speaking, the audience was less likely to heckle him and more likely to pay attention to his act. See more

So, are you feeling okay? No wedding jitters?
No. There is nothing in the world that would stop me from marrying you tomorrow, even me from the future coming back to prevent the wedding and the subsequent birth of a child who will destroy humanity.
Amy Farrah Fowler
Because if you came from the future, that would mean you already went through with the wedding because you believe that time travel is on a closed loop.
I love you so damn much.
