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.

Sheldon seems to lack a comprehensive knowledge of heraldry. (Perhaps not surprising, since he once went to a Renaissance Fair dressed as Spock.) He described their "room flag" as "a golden lion rampant on a field of azure". In English heraldic tradition, the color (tincture) of the field is named first, followed by the charge. The correct blazon would be "Azure, a lion rampant dexter Or
" and "dexter
" are both defaults and may be omitted without error. (After A.C. Fox-Davies, A Complete Guide to Heraldry
(1978).) See more
This episode begins in 2010 and flashes back 7 years to 2003. In 2003 Sheldon makes a reference to Joss Whedon's show "Firefly" stating that "Friday nights are reserved for Firefly, it will be on forever." In fact, Firefly was canceled in December 2002. See more
