It was a long time coming, but Leonard finally put his foot down.
The much-discussed "roommate agreement" between Sheldon and Leonard was brought to an end on Thursday night's "Big Bang Theory" (and just in time for the show's biggest ratings ever, according to CBS).
Leonard was tired of adhering to it, and thus the two were merely acquaintances, exchanging the occasional "'Sup?"
To Sheldon's horror, no one else volunteered to drive him to his various doctor's appointments and shopping excursions. So, to no one's surprise, the power went out one night, and Sheldon decided to play hero: his emergency preparedness was a big perk of the roommate agreement.
However, he underestimated the young Jedi Leonard's lightsaber, which served as a much better light source than Sheldon's measly glowstick.
Leonard and Penny took off, leaving Sheldon by himself to say, "Wine and a girl in the dark ... he's going to be bored out of his mind."
Penny convinced Leonard that he should make up with Sheldon, and the roommates agreed that Leonard would drive Sheldon around occasionally, provided that Sheldon thank him.
"Every time?" Sheldon exclaimed.
Meanwhile, Howard was celebrating his future trip into space (I really hope this figures into the plot later this season), but anxious about which nickname he would get.
When he spoke on a webcam to actual astronaut Mike Massimino, of course, his screeching mother ruined it all. Thanks to Howard's breakfast cereal preference, he will now forever be known as "Froot Loop."
