Admittedly, it is one of those clauses that, in The Big Bang Theory, really only works to Sheldon`s advantage – but if it worked both ways, it would make a lot of sense. According to their agreement, they have once a year a roommate “audit” where they talk (probably) about issues, and if each roommate follows the agreement. When he knew Sheldon, he refused to admit a fault, but he spent a regular time recording with the roommates and talking about problems before they became important subjects, seems to be a smart maneuver. But perhaps these clauses are insignificant without affecting the agreement in general, or perhaps the rest of the contract is in place because Sheldon had the foresight to include a separation clause. There are still ways to defeat the treaty. In accordance with the agreement, the thermostat must be maintained at 72F (22C). All the time. At all times. And although they live in sunny California, where the weather won`t fluctuate as much as in New York, for example, it still seems extreme.
Who doesn`t know? The chamber contract was signed by Sheldon Cooper and signed by Leonard Hofstadter. At the end of the day, I am inclined to believe that the roommate agreement is unenforceable and invalid, but the lawyers will not agree. In fact, we are often paid. How do you feel about that? Is that happening? Does Leonard have any recourse to go out under his pre-boarded roommate? I am interested in the debate. But even if Sheldon and Amy wanted a turtle, he`d be breaking his own rule. In the roommate agreement, he explained that pets were in fact prohibited, unless they were pets! This may sound ridiculous, but adding a day of the year to enjoy your roommate and everything you do for each other is incredibly cute – and probably very helpful in maintaining a great relationship. It would work better if it was reciprocal, not just a roommate, of course. And yes, it shouldn`t be necessary, but gratitude is increasingly made to be useful for health and happiness, so why not take a little leave of absence from “roommate-thank you”? It goes on like this, and so on. Look, I give them this: the roommate deal is funny and was a reliable source of comedy, but is it legally valid? The issue was actually raised in the show; In Season 4, Leonard Priya placed Koothrapali, a lawyer and sister of his friend Raj. When Leonard`s relationship with Priya came into conflict with Sheldon`s demands, Priya argued to Sheldon that the agreement was unenforceable.
What for? The roommate contract can be shaken anyway, as Leonard and Penny are getting married for the start of the season, which means Leonard is likely to move. To be on time, Greg. “If Sheldon turns into a zombie, Leonard can`t kill him.” It`s right there in the roommates agreement, but this one makes absolutely no sense. Even if you ignore the fact that a zombie apocalypse isn`t really very likely, not to let Leonard kill Sheldon Zombie, he essentially condemns Leonard to become a zombie himself – which is just a terrible wait for every roommate! The roommate agreement was written by Sheldon and signed by Leonard when they became roommates for the first time. These events were reported during a flash-return. Sheldon begins to mention in the episode “The Cooper-Nowitzki Theorem” paragraphs of a friendship treatise.
