1. **Future Endeavors and Projects**
In life post-"The Big Bang Theory," Jim Parsons worked on the Boys in the Band movie and joked, “Then I'm just skydiving off a cliff and see where I land." Johnny Galecki said of his post-"Big Bang" life (in addition to becoming a father in real life), “We're producing six TV shows, a film that John Carpenter is directing, and a play. I'm going to let Leonard run his course through my bloodstream before taking on much of a big role.

2. **Genuine Support and Sentimentality**
What Does Jim Really Think Of Johnny? Twelve years of friendship can’t be faked. Jim has supported Johnny in all of his professional and personal endeavors, as Johnny has of his. Over the years this friendship has blossomed nicely.

When it comes to mementos from the show, everyone got what they wanted to keep. Jim said of wanting to keep his time with Johnny and the gang close, "The set department was gracious enough to make us all replicas of the little placard that says 4A on the apartment. I opened that and had tears in my eyes immediately. That's been funny about closing out — it's been these little trigger moments. Like, 'I'm fine, I'm fine.

3. **Mutual Respect and Appreciation**
How Does Johnny Feel About Jim? Keeping good ties with past roles is part of who Johnny Galecki is, which can be seen in his cameo returns to "Roseanne" (where he first gained some fame), and his relationship with Jim Parsons is no different.

Because the two have worked so well together, there is a good chance that they will attend a "Big Bang" reunion (but odds are we’ll need to wait another five to ten years for that).

4. **Salary Sacrifice for Camaraderie**

Sometimes those stars recognize that it isn’t fair for those who joined a little late. It has been reported that the original five agreed to each take a $100,000 pay cut so that money could go to later regulars on "The Big Bang Theory," Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch. Industry insiders reported, “The move is evidence of the strong camaraderie among the key players on the show that remains primetime’s most-watched comedy.

5. **Professionalism Amid Personal Relationships**
For two years, co-stars Galecki and Cuoco dated but worked hard to keep it under the radar. Cuoco said, “It was a wonderful relationship, but we never spoke a word about it and never went anywhere together." The two didn’t let the breakup impact their professional relationship.

Galecki said, "We're dear friends, still. Kaley's not just an ex, she's a part of my life." He also noted in another interview that one of the reasons they don’t talk much about it is they don’t want it to cloud people’s opinions of the Penny and Leonard relationship.
