As Leonard is feeling sleep deprived because of Sheldon, Leonard is in no mood to have to drive Sheldon to the dentist's office as per the roommate agreement. As such, Leonard willingly invokes what Sheldon tells him is clause 209 in the agreement, namely that the agreement be dissolved, that they no longer be friends, and that their only formal responsibilities to each other be payment of rent, payment of utilities and the perfunctory "'sup" as they pass each other in the hallway. Sheldon is equally as willing. However, Sheldon may change his mind when no one in his social circle, even Amy, seems willing to take on the duties that used to be performed by Leonard. Sheldon tries to show Leonard that he needs him as a friend, while Leonard really doesn't mind doing these little favors for Sheldon but wants them not to be a mandatory part of their relationship.

Attempting to entice Leonard to re-agree to the roommate agreement, Sheldon declares that he has a box set of Red Dwarf
which includes "all 61 episodes of the BBC series". As of the original airing, there only exist 55 episodes: 6 each from Series 1 through 6, 8 each from Series 7 and 8, and 3 episodes from Series 9. At this time Series 10's planned 6 episodes would indeed bring the total to 61, but Red Dwarf had not even begun filming Series 10 yet, never mind these episodes having been released on DVD in North America. Sheldon appears to be holding "Red Dwarf: The Complete Collection", which includes the first 8 seasons (52 episodes total), missing Series 9, Red Dwarf: Back To Earth. The side of the box we see matches the back of the box, and "The Complete Collection" can be read along the top edge. See more

Yahhh! What the hell!
Emergency preparedness drill.
Oh, no, come on!
You know how it works. Once a quarter; keep our readiness up. Now, rise and shine sleepyhead, half the town is probably dead.
I have to get a lock for my door.

I've long known that due to the FCC's equal time rules, I cannot use this space to espouse political views. To do so would set in motion a legal action which demands that an opposing opinion be flashed on the screen for a split second at the end of a sitcom (I'm guessing). With that in mind, I worked hard to write what I thought was a very balanced, centrist vanity card; a simple, rational essay that no one could disagree with. CBS disagreed. CENSORED! See more
