The bathroom. SheldonLeonard, are you in the shower?
LeonardI can't hear you, I'm in the shower.
SheldonI asked if you were in the shower, but that's moot now.
LeonardWhat?
SheldonMoot. Rendered unimportant by recent events.
LeonardI can't hear you, I'm in the shower.
SheldonI have to skip the chitchat. Emergency.
LeonardWhat kind of emergency?
SheldonMathematical. 32-ounce banana smoothie, 16-ounce bladder.
LeonardYou might not wanna do that.
SheldonI assure you I do.
LeonardSheldon, I'm not alone in here.
SheldonWhat?
PriyaHello, Sheldon.
SheldonWhat are you doing in there? She can't be in here.
LeonardWe were in here first, you can't be in here.
SheldonAccording to the roommate agreement, paragraph nine, subsection B, the right to bathroom privacy is suspended in the event of force majeure. And believe me, I am experiencing a very majeure force.
SheldonCome on, you can't wait two minutes?
PriyaOh, Leonard, let the man pee. Penny's door. SheldonPenny? Penny? Penny?
PennyWhat?
SheldonMove. Move. Move! The apartment. SheldonDr. Leonard Hofstadter, you are officially charged with two violations of the roommate agreement. Do you waive reading of the charges?
LeonardYeah, fine.
PriyaHang on. No, my client does not waive reading of the charges.
LeonardOh. Cool. I've got a lawyer. And I've seen her naked.
PriyaProceed.
SheldonVery well. Count the first, on or about the 28th day of April, the accused did knowingly and with malice aforethought deny access to the shared bathroom in a time of emergency, to wit, my back teeth were floating. Count the second, the accused exceeded the agreed upon occupancy of the shower, to wit, one, unless we are under attack by water-soluble aliens.
PriyaCan I see the roommate agreement?
SheldonUm, it's fairly technical.
PriyaI think I can handle it.
LeonardTop of her class, Cambridge University. Licensed to practice law in three countries. And your face.
PriyaAll right, based on a cursory reading, it doesn't look like you have much of a case, Sheldon.
SheldonDo so, do so.
PriyaOh, I'm afraid not. Section seven here, on the right to enter the bathroom in emergency situations, is not specific as to what constitutes an emergency.
SheldonOh, that's ridiculous. A bathroom emergency is self-explanatory.
PriyaIs it? If Leonard forgot to trim his nose hair, could he barge in while you were showering?
SheldonIrrelevant. Leonard doesn't trim his nose hair. He thinks because he's short nobody can see up there.
PriyaMy point is, Sheldon, the legal principle is ambiguity in a contract benefits the party that did not draft it, in this case, Leonard. So much for count one.
SheldonBut-
PriyaThere's no buts, Sheldon, that's how the law works.
LeonardSchooled!
PriyaAs for the shower capacity issue, I cite addendum J. When Sheldon showers second, any and all measures shall be taken to ensure an adequate supply of hot water. I believe this supersedes the occupancy issue.
LeonardSuperseded!
SheldonThis isn't over.
LeonardNo offence, but shower sex with you is now the second best thing that's happened today. The apartment. RajMmm, Greek food on pizza night? This is the most delightfully cruel thing we've done to Sheldon since we left that fake message from Stephen Hawking on his voice mail.
PriyaSeriously?
Howard(In Stephen Hawking voice) I wish to discuss your theories of black holes. Meet me at the Randy's Donut by the airport at 2:00 a.m.
SheldonWhat is that you're eating? Tonight is pizza night.
LeonardI'd like to refer that to my attorney.
PriyaAccording to what I see here, Thursday nights are Franconi's pizza night.
SheldonYes, and when Franconi's went out of business, we switched to Graziano's.
HowardThat's interesting. Can you just switch restaurants like that, Priya?
PriyaA good question, Howard. Turns out you can't. According to the document you drew up, Sheldon, the selection of a new takeout restaurant requires public hearings and a 60-day comment period. Were those criteria met?
SheldonNo.
AllOpa!
SheldonThis is Greek food? Leonard, you hate Greek food.
LeonardNot as much as you.
SheldonFine. I'm nothing if not adaptable.
LeonardI got you the lamb kabob.
SheldonThank you. If you think about it, Greek food isn't that far from Italian food. They share a spice palette. And what a civilization is the Greeks. They gave us science, democracy, and little cubes of charred meat that taste like sweat. (Spits it) Penny's door. SheldonPenny? Penny? Penny?
PennyHey. What's up?
SheldonThe mean Indian lady tried to make me eat lamb. Congratulations. Pizza night will now be at your apartment. Order one.
PennyOh, I'm sorry, honey, I'm meeting Amy and Bernadette for dinner. But you're welcome to tag along.
SheldonA girls night? Oh, I don't know if I'm up for an evening talking about rainbows, unicorns and menstrual cramps.
PennyOkay, suit yourself. We'll probably be trashing Priya a little.
SheldonShotgun. A bar. PennyOkay, I'd like to propose a toast to a wonderful girls night out.
AmyFair warning, we can get ker-razy.
BernadetteYeah. Last week we smoked cigars and pretended to be dragons.
SheldonReally, Amy? Tobacco and alcohol? Need I remind you not a lot of scientific discoveries were made by people having a good time?
AmyWhy did you bring him? He's harshing my buzz.
PennyI felt sorry for him. Priya's giving him a hard time.
BernadetteOoh, the Priya bashing's starting early. Yay! Okay, what's up with those pantsuits?
AmyI need some context.
PennyPantsuits suck.
AmyAnd that opens her up to justifiable ridicule for wearing them. Good one, Bernadette. See? Ker-razy. The same, later. BernadetteWhee-ee-ee!
AmyYou smell like baby powder.
SheldonIt's talc. But as that's a primary ingredient of baby powder, I understand your confusion.
AmyOh, I'm not confused at all. You're like a sexy toddler.
SheldonI don't know how to process that.
BernadetteI do. Amy and Sheldon sitting in a tree. K-I-S-S-S-S-I-N-G.
PennyThat's too many S's for kissing.
BernadetteNot if they're doing it for a long time.
PennySheldon, have you ever kissed a girl?
SheldonOther than my mother, my sister and my meemaw, no. But in the interest of full disclosure, I was once on a bus and had to give mouth-to-mouth resuscitation to an elderly nun who passed out from heat exhaustion. Every year I get a Christmas card from her, signed with far too many X's and O's.
BernadetteThat doesn't count. Aren't you even a little curious?
PennyYeah, you're a scientist, where is the curiosity?
AmyI'm available for experimentation.
SheldonThank you. Not necessary. We know everything there is to know about kissing. It requires 34 facial muscles and 112 postural muscles.
AmyOh, blah, blah, blah. Give me some sugar, bestie (Kisses Penny on the lip).
SheldonI'm certainly glad no one said they were curious about Aztec human sacrifice.
PennyHey, I know, let's take Sheldon dancing.
BernadetteOh, I totally wanna see Sheldon dance. I bet he looks like a spider on a hot plate.
SheldonNo, thank you, but for the record, I'm an excellent dancer. Proficient in the rumba, waltz and cha-cha.
AmyReally?
SheldonI don't see why that's surprising. I excel at so many things. You've had my sourdough bread.
PennyDid you take dance lessons?
SheldonAgainst my will. In the South, pre-adolescent children are forced through a process called cotillion, which indoctrinates them with all the social graces and dance skills needed to function in 18th century Vienna.
PennyOh, we are so taking you dancing.
SheldonNo, you most certainly are not.
BernadetteWell, what does your cotillion training say is expected of a gentleman when three ladies ask him to escort them to a dance soiree?
SheldonI saved a nun's life. Why am I being punished? A taxi. PennyTake us to a place we can waltz.
Taxi driverWhere you can what?
SheldonWaltz. It's a social dance from Austria, choreographed to a three-four time signature. (Sings Blue Danube. The taxi driver says something into radio in Korean. The word "waltz" is included. Dispatcher replies also in Korean. Taxi driver sings Blue Danube. Dispatcher says "oh, waltz!" They speak Korean some more. )
Taxi DriverHere we go.
Amy(Singing) I kissed a girl and I liked it, I hope my boyfriend don't mind it.
SheldonWhat happened to you? A Korean ballroom dancing club. Sheldon and Amy are dancing. PennyShake it baby, shake it!
BernadetteMuy caliente, Sheldon!
Elderly Korean GentlemanCare to dance?
BernadetteOh, sorry, I'm engaged.
KoreanHow about you?
PennyOh, what the hell. Ooh! Outside Amy's apartment. AmyHow come if we're the smart people, we don't do this every night?
SheldonWhat's 16 times 14?
AmyMy burps taste like cranberry juice.
SheldonAnd there's your answer.
AmyWould you like to come in for a nightcap?
SheldonIf you're referring to the beverage, you know I don't drink. If you're referring to the hat you don while wearing a nightshirt and holding a candle, I have one.
AmyI have yoo-hoo.
SheldonIt's hard to say no to yoo-hoo. The name literally beckons.
AmyMake yourself comfortable.
SheldonThank you. Is someone smoking?
AmyOh, that's just Ricky.
SheldonYou own a smoking monkey?
AmyDon't be silly. He's one of the animals in my department's nicotine addiction study.
SheldonWhat's he doing here?
AmyI'm giving him emphysema. The least I can do is let him hang out and watch cable.
SheldonRemarkable. Aren't you worried about secondhand smoke?
AmyA little. The real danger is him biting my face off while I'm sleeping.
SheldonIs he deliberately blowing smoke at me?
AmyYeah. He's kind of an ass.
SheldonThank you. May I share something with you that's troubling me?
AmyOf course. What's rattling around that big bulbous brain of yours?
SheldonPriya has essentially nullified my roommate agreement with Leonard, making life in the apartment very uncomfortable for me.
AmyAnd you want me to kill her? Done.
SheldonNo, of course not.
AmyI trained Ricky how to smoke. I can train him to shoot a poison dart. No jury would convict us 'cause people love monkeys.
SheldonI understand the alcohol has stirred up whatever it is that makes girls go wild, but I really need to talk to smart Amy now.
AmyExcuse me. (Gives Ricky a cigarette) Have you considered that your intelligence might be the very thing causing your dilemma?
SheldonNo.
AmyWhat do you think Ricky over here would do if an interloper encroached on his territory?
SheldonWell, when challenged, monkeys generally assert their dominance through chasing, assault and a stylized penile display. That's a little outside my comfort zone.
AmyYou're being too literal. My point is, he would not meekly surrender to the rules, and neither should you.
SheldonAre you suggesting I play dirty?
AmyYes, dirty. Dirty, dirty, dirty. Which brings me to our next order of business. (Kisses him)
SheldonFascinating.
AmyI hope you don't take what I'm about to do as a comment on what we just did. (Runs to bathroom and vomits)
Sheldon(to Ricky) Who's to say you shouldn't be dissecting our brains? (Rick blows smoke at him again) You really are an ass. The apartment. LeonardMorning, Sheldon.
SheldonOh, good, you're up. I've written a new and improved roommate agreement that benefits me greatly. I'd like you to sign it.
LeonardWhy would I wanna do that?
SheldonExcellent question. Do you remember what happened to the alien, played by talented character actor Frank Gorshin, in the Star Trek episode Let That Be Your Last Battlefield?
LeonardUh, Captain Kirk activated the self-destruct sequence and threatened to blow up the Enterprise and kill them both unless he gave in?
SheldonAffirmative. Computer, this is Dr. Sheldon Cooper. Activate self-destruct sequence. Code 1-1-A-2-B.
Female VoiceSelf-destruct sequence activated.
LeonardWhat are you gonna do, Sheldon, blow up the apartment?
SheldonThat was my first thought, but all my cool stuff is here.
PriyaSo what happens when it counts down?
SheldonUnless Leonard signs the new agreement in the next 41 seconds, this computer will send an e-mail to your parents in India saying that you're in a secret relationship with the whiter-than-marshmallow-fluff Leonard Hofstadter.
PriyaOh, my God.
LeonardWhat's the big deal?
PriyaTrust me, it's a big deal.
LeonardThey're gonna find out about me eventually, right?
PriyaYeah, of course, just not today.
Sheldon20 seconds.
LeonardAre you ashamed of me?
PriyaOf course not.
LeonardThen why can't we tell your parents?
PriyaPlease, don't push this.
SheldonHe does that all the time, doesn't he? 15.
PriyaOkay, fine, Sheldon, you win. Turn it off.
LeonardNo, he's bluffing.
SheldonI never bluff. Ten.
LeonardIt's blackmail!
SheldonNine.
PriyaWe give up.
SheldonEight.
LeonardThis is ridiculous. (Pulls out plug)
SheldonIt's a laptop with a full charge. (To Priya) Honestly, what do you see in him?
PriyaGive him what he wants or we're done.
SheldonThree.
LeonardReally?
SheldonTwo.
LeonardOkay, I'll sign it!
Female VoiceSelf-destruct sequence aborted.
SheldonYou may have gone to Cambridge, but I'm an honorary graduate of Wiki]'>Starfleet academy. The apartment. Sheldon is at his laptop. SheldonGood morning, Amy.
AmyIt most assuredly is not.
SheldonAre you experiencing dehydration, headache, nausea and shame?
AmyYes. I also found a Korean man's business card tucked into my cleavage. What happened last night?
SheldonAh, memory impairment, the free prize at the bottom of every vodka bottle.
AmySheldon?
SheldonAll right. Last night you gave me some excellent advice regarding my problem here at home, you kissed me and then vomited on and off for 40 minutes, following which you passed out on your bathroom floor. I then folded a towel under your head as a pillow, set your oven clock to the correct time because it was driving me crazy, and I left.
AmyOkay. Don't really know where we go from here.
SheldonI suggest we treat our relationship as if it were a crashed computer and restore it to the last point we both agree it worked.
AmyTerrific. Thank you. (Noise of Ricky in background) They were out of menthols! Get off my back! Not easy living with a temperamental little primate.
Leonard(Off) Come on, Priya, just admit I embarrass you!
SheldonGee, preaching to the choir, sister.
