Sheldon Cooper (The Big Bang Theory) would be outraged to find that no one has even attempted to collect all of his Roommate Agreement rules and regulations. To right that wrong, and keep me busy during insomnia, I’ve attempted to do such. If you have suggestions of roommate agreement items I’ve looked over, please mention them in the comments so we have a comprehensive list.
The Big Bang Theory Roommate Agreement articles:
Please note that many of the points here are reciprocal.
A roommate gets an ID Card, a lapel pin, FAQ sheet and a key. New roommates may be interested in the live webchat on Tuesday nights called “Apartment Talk.”
In the event one friend is ever invited to visit the large super collider (now under construction in Switzerland) he must invite the other friend.
The other roommate gets power of attorney over you. (Reciprocity clause.)
There can be a temporary, modified, roommate agreement issued for a temporary house guest.
Zombie-bite contingency (you cannot kill the other even if they’ve turned.)
Past 10 p.m. you must refrain from raucous laughter, clinking of glasses and celebratory gunfire.

Sheldon’s Roommate Agreement Clauses
Skynet Clause: Leonard will help Sheldon destroy an artificial intelligence that Sheldon has created and is taking over the earth.
Bodysnatchers Clause: If someone has been replaced by an alien pod, the other roommate will help destroy them.
Superheroes Clause: If one roommate gets super powers, the other gets to be the sidekick.
Temperature Clause: The temperature must always be 71 degrees Fahrenheit.
Roommate has to wash their feet in a special tub before they gets in the bath or shower.
There are two pieces of tape on the floor in the bathroom. One is in front of the sink and people must brush and floss their teeth from behind this piece of tape. An additional, second piece is in front of the toilet for those that stand up to pee. If someone gets the mirror or floor dirty, before Sheldon’s inspection, they can (and likely will) lose their TV privileges.
Roommate must drive Sheldon to and from work, the comic book store, the barber shop, and the park for one hour every other Sunday for fresh air.
Roommate is tasked to bring home all take out dinners. Standard orders are located in Appendix B, and are also down-loadable from Sheldon’s FTP server.
Sheldon specific (these are not reciprocal):
Ask how Leonard is once a day though he does not care.
No spontaneous Bio Hazard drills after 10 p.m.
No tuvan singing.
