Episode Notes

  • The title refers to the arguments that split the group as they gather for a viewing party to watch the season premiere of Game of Thrones.

> Roommate Agreement

Sheldon and Leonard fall out with each other when Leonard refuses to attend the quarterly roommmate agreement meeting. Leonard doesn't see the need to have a meeting every three months, but Sheldon thinks that's the sort of thing that should be brought up at a quarterly meeting. According to Sheldon, Penny was set to lead the Pledge of Allegiance at the next meeting for the first time.

> Sheldon's Knock

Sheldon knocks on Leonard's bedroom door in the middle of the night to ask him an inane question about Batman that he'd not been able to ask earlier.

Quotes (45)

Sheldon: I like a party as much as the next man, as long as the next man doesn't like a party.

Sheldon: I have a question about Batman. Batman is a man who dresses up like a bat. Man-bat is a part man, part bat hybrid. Now, if Man-Bat dressed up as a man to fight crime, would he be Man-Batman?
Leonard: No, he'd be Bat-Man-Bat.
Raj: But wouldn't Man-Batman just be a Batman that was bitten by a radioactive man?
Howard: But Batman is a man. You're talking about a man who would have the powers of a man. That's just Man-Man.
Sheldon: Well, isn't Man-Man just Man?
Leonard: But what if Man-Man dressed as a bat?
Raj: Well, that's just Batman.
Leonard: No, if a man dresses as a bat, that's Batman, but if Man-Man dresses as a bat, that's Batman-Man.
Howard: So does that answer your question?
Sheldon: Oh, I haven't asked it yet.

Leonard: Really? The guy who for years couldn't even talk to women is suddenly going out with two of them? How is that possible?
Howard: I know. Scientists have tried to reproduce it with computational models, but, in each case, the world blows up.
Leonard: Seriously, that guy's dating two women?

Howard: I'm not sure if I'm hoping for a boy or a girl. I mean, if it's a boy, I'm gonna have to teach him to play catch. Which means I'm gonna have to Google how to play catch.

Howard: There you go again.
Raj: I'm sorry, have I been complaining about it too much?
Howard: Actually, what you're doing is pretending to complain, but really trying to brag.
Raj: How could you say that?
Howard: (imitating Raj) Oh, I wish could enjoy a cup of tea without a naked girl bouncing up and down on me.
Raj: I never said that.
Howard: (imitating Raj) Don't you hate it when you can't remember whose bra it is you found wedged in your couch?
Raj: Okay, that I said. But that's a real problem. You give a girl another woman's bra, and you will not be having sex with her that night. Maybe the other girl, but not her.

#tudza I am italian, mort does not mean anything, but as Sheldon said, morta (of mortadella) means: she is dead

What really is amazing is that Penny took Sheldon's side. She never wanted to stay in the apartment when they got married but caved in to Sheldon's selfish and whining attitude about being alone. Leonard should have told her "Do you want to be married to me or Sheldon" and walked out to make Penny feel guilty. Would have been good dramatic effect

It's time to move forward with the show. Leonard and Penny need to move out to the upper floor. The elevator needs to be serviced, no tenants would put up with an elevator out of service for this long. Sheldon needs to pop the question. Stuart needs to move in with Raj in Leonard/Penny and Sheldon apartment complex. Priya needs to visit Raj and Leonard makes a LIFE MISTAKE? Lucy shows up (at the comic book store) with a little more confidence and makes Raj make a choice!
