The Agreement Dissection (2011)

Type :   Production countries :  


When Leonard takes a shower with Priya while Sheldon experiences an event of force majeure, he gets charged with two violations of the roommate agreement . However, before he can get too far, Priya uses her skills as a lawyer to nullify the charges, due to the agreement's vague wording, much to Sheldon's dismay. When the guys take advantage of Priya's skills in order to eat Greek food (which Sheldon doesn't like at all) on pizza night, Sheldon seeks shelter at Penny's, who invites him to join her on a girls' night out with Amy and Bernadette, which Sheldon agrees to after Penny mentions that they may be talking trash about Priya. After the girls had some cocktails and Sheldon mentions he had learned to dance at cotillion balls as a child, they decide to take Sheldon dancing, an offer to which Sheldon reluctantly agrees since his obligations as a gentleman require him to do so. After dancing, Sheldon takes an intoxicated Amy back to her apartment and, as well as talking about Priya, meets Ricky, a capuchin monkey from a nicotine addiction study that Amy is working on (this was first mentioned in the previous episode "The Herb Garden Germination") who is addicted to smoking cigarettes and, as Amy puts it, is also "kind of an ass". Amy tells Sheldon not to give in to Priya's law skills, just like a monkey would defend his territory. She then proceeds to kiss him (Sheldon comments on this with the word "fascinating") and then rushes to her bathroom to vomit. The next day, Sheldon presents an overhauled version of the roommate agreement to Leonard and asks him to sign it. When Leonard shows his reluctance, Sheldon activates a "self-destruct sequence" on his laptop, modeled after the ship's computer in Star Trek: The Next Generation: If Leonard doesn't sign the agreement within a minute, an e-mail will be sent to Priya's parents informing them of their relationship. Leonard accuses Sheldon of bluffing and blackmailing and doesn't see any harm in Priya's parents knowing. Priya, however, knowing that her parents do not approve her dating an American, tells Leonard their relationship is over if he doesn't sign the new agreement. After a failed attempt to cut the power supply from Sheldon's laptop, Leonard gives in and Sheldon aborts the program. Later that day, Sheldon speaks with a hungover Amy via webcam and thanks her for the advice that she gave him the night before. They agree to treat their relationship like a "crashed computer" and "restore" it to the last point it worked for both, thus deciding to forget about the evening's entire events. Meanwhile, Leonard, not knowing how strict Dr. and Mrs. Koothrappali are, argues with his girlfriend about whether or not she's ashamed of him.

Recurring character: Aarti Mann as Priya Koothrappali.

Note: Jim Parsons won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for this episode.

Trivia: Sheldon claims to have only kissed his "mother, sister and 'Meemaw'"; however Sheldon was kissed by Leonard's mother in "The Maternal Congruence".

Title reference: Priya using her skills as a lawyer to nullify Leonard and Sheldon's roommate agreement.
