Go To


Sheldon finds life in the apartment unraveling when Priya starts finding loopholes in the Roommate Agreement.


  • Blackmail: Sheldon uses this to reestablish control of the apartment by having Leonard sign a revised version of the Roommate Agreement, or else he'd distribute info online that he and Priya are dating. Priya, not wanting her parents to know, convinces Leonard to sign.
  • Jerkass: Leonard, Howard and Raj decide to get Greek food, which they know that Sheldon hates, on Pizza Night just to tick off Sheldon.

  • Loophole Abuse: Priya looks between the lines of the Roommate Agreement, allowing her and Leonard to get away with stuff without violating it, much to Sheldon's dismay.
  • Potty Emergency: In the Cold Opening, Sheldon has to tinkle. Unfortunately, to his dismay, Leonard and Priya are in the middle of a Shower of Love, forcing him to use Penny's bathroom.
  • Tastes Like Feet: Sheldon tries some Greek lamb kabob.
    Sheldon: And what a civilization is the Greeks'. They gave us science, democracy... and little cubes of charred meat that taste like sweat!
  • You Said You Couldn't Dance: The girls want to see Sheldon dance, thinking he would be, in Bernadette's words, "like a spider on a hot plate." Turns out Sheldon is an excellent dancer, thanks to cotillion classes he was forced to take as a child in Texas.
