After Leonard and Sheldon have a heated argument about what Sheldon sees as Leonard making a major breach in the roommate agreement, Leonard takes refuge at Penny's apartment. Despite the seriousness of the argument, Leonard assures Penny that Sheldon was much more difficult to live with when Leonard first moved in. Leonard recounts to her his first meeting with Sheldon seven years earlier when Leonard answered Sheldon's advertisement looking for a new roommate. He also recounts Howard and Raj's first encounters with Sheldon, what happened to the now broken elevator which was working when Leonard first moved in, and why Leonard decided to stay despite Sheldon being such a difficult and unusual roommate.

When Sheldon and Leonard are first going over the roommate agreement, they finish up the TV and Movies section and then move onto the miscellaneous section, section 9, which would make the TV and movies section, section 8. Then, later, when Sheldon enters the bedroom when Joyce Kim is in bed with Leonard, Sheldon states Leonard is in breach of Section 8, Visitors; Subsection C, Females; Paragraph 4, Coitus, but Visitors shouldn't be section 8, as TV and Movies presumably is.

You're the guy we're trying to get away from.

CHUCK LORRE PRODUCTIONS, #287 CENSORED!!! Apparently, it's okay to show brutal violence in graphic, vomit- your-Jenny Craig dinner-up-into-your-mouth detail on a forensic cop show, but it's unacceptable to write about it with a little whimsy. As always, you can read the offending material on my web site, Chucklorre.com. Frankly, I think you'll be disappointed. See more
