While our Sheldon Cooper “Roommate Agreement” may seem extreme at first glance, it makes us all much safer. I am grateful to my roommates, for their support and for our unjudgmental way of saying the tricky things. Although I think Leonard has a good shot at dismissing the roommate agreement, there are some who may not agree. Courts generally do not accept ignorance or non-reading as a plausible defence. It is generally considered that, without fraud, if you sign a contract that means that you have read it, understood it, and accepts all the inherent risks involved. Leonard is a highly educated and intelligent scientist who works for a renowned university. A judge can easily consider the agreement and, however ridiculous, maintain its validity. “Hey, you`re a smart guy and you signed it. Take care of that. According to the roommate`s agreement, Sheldon insists on having different types of food different on weeknights. Especially Thursday was pizza-night – jet pizzas, nothing less. If Sheldon or Leonard wanted to change and try somewhere, they should have a public hearing with a 60-day comment period. But perhaps these clauses are insignificant without affecting the agreement in general, or perhaps the rest of the contract is in place because Sheldon had the foresight to include a separation clause. There are still ways to defeat the treaty.
Sheldon: If Leonard doesn`t sign the new agreement in the next 41 seconds, this computer will send an email to your parents in India to say you`re in secret contact with the whiter than The Marshmallow-Fluff Leonard Hofstadter. It goes on like this, and so on. Look, I give them this: the roommate deal is funny and was a reliable source of comedy, but is it legally valid? The issue was actually raised in the show; In Season 4, Leonard Priya placed Koothrapali, a lawyer and sister of his friend Raj. When Leonard`s relationship with Priya came into conflict with Sheldon`s demands, Priya argued to Sheldon that the agreement was unenforceable. What for? Sheldon: In accordance with the roommate agreement, paragraph 9, subsection B, the right to privacy in the bathroom is suspended in case of force majeure.
