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.

Did You Know?
Sheldon mentions the (then new) TV series Firefly
(2002) and predicts that it will go on for years. This is a joke, as 'Firefly' was infamously canceled after just one season (although it was followed up by the full-length movie Serenity
(2005)). See more
There is a slim (V12 or later) PlayStation 2 on top of Howard's TV during the flashback to 2003, which was not released until 2004. See more
We agree to reserve Friday nights to watch Joss Whedon's brilliant new show Firefly.
Does that really need to be in the agreement?
We might as well settle it now. It's going to be on for years.
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
