The roommate agreement was in effect for most of the show; But since Sheldon moved in with Amy in Penny`s old apartment, it can be assumed that the agreement is no longer in effect. 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. Here are 10 rules of Sheldon`s roommate that everyone should follow: at the end of the show, Sheldon and Amy had done more than just keep their hands… But at first, Sheldon was definitely against the posture of the hand. The relationship agreement states that if a person does not fall off a cliff, receives a vaccine or receives the Nobel Prize, no hand is held. When Leonard and Stephanie get serious, Sheldon talks about the “Cohabitation Rider,” part of the deal about a romantic partner moving in. It`s actually an area where Sheldon is incredibly reasonable, because he has no problem with Stephanie, who is part of the house – and it`s Leonard who is upset by the time she spends there. Sheldon just wanted to see how their shelving would change! Whatever happens, having a plan for what happens when someone wants to move in with a romantic partner is just a smart way to plan. Take a second, because that may sound like one of the least reasonable rules of the agreement, but it is Sheldon that we are talking about here. According to Section 9 “If one of the roommates invents time travel, the first stop must be targeted exactly five seconds after the signing of this clause of the roommate contract.” Which seems like a ridiculous thing, but if someone is going to discover the time travel, he will probably be Sheldon, and if he does, he would hold 100% to the roommate agreement.
If there`s nothing else, it`s a fun way to start a conversation about borders when you live together, and it`s never bad. “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 full relationship agreement allows for cosmetic surgery, as they say, “every party must not undergo cosmetic surgery unless it must look like a Klingon.” What`s supposed to be funny, of course, is an allusion to Sheldon`s hatred for the change and love of Star Trek. But really, there is something deeply disturbing about a binding treaty that dictates what a partner should look like. If her agreement states that Amy must maintain a certain weight or hair color or prohibit the use of makeup or contact lenses, the alarm bell would ring – and while cosmetic surgery may not be as common as mascara, any operation is to be prevented (there is no restriction in the event of an accident, remember) is simply too far. Admittedly, it is not usually codified on this scale, but it is actually quite normal to expect a partner to tell you when they will go on vacation. Under the agreement, Amy Sheldon must make it known at least 72 hours in advance. She must also check tire pressure (when travelling in the car) and check for vaccines.
