Amy Farrah Fowler

In Big Bang Theory, Amy Farrah Fowler (Mayim Bialik) is Sheldon Cooper’s friend who is a girl but not his “girlfriend”. She’s rational, blunt, and socially awkward – can’t imagine why Sheldon doesn’t want to date someone who’s basically his female counterpart.

Lewis Skolnick

In Revenge of the Nerds, Lewis Skolnick (Robert Carradine) is comfortable with being a nerd. In fact, the computer science geek shamelessly embraces every stereotype imaginable from wayfarer eyeglasses to pocket protectors. He doesn’t even have to worry about getting wedgies from the jocks. His pants are already pulled up as high as they can go.

Velma Dinkley

Velma Dinkley

Velma Dace Dinkley is the brains behind the Scooby Doo gang, as the homely fashion and big glasses attest. She frequently loses her glasses and reminds everyone, “I can’t see without my glasses!” as if they didn’t already know. Jeepers Velma, why don’t you look into contacts already?
