Unfortunately, the above rule on travel notice does not include only great holidays. Sheldon asks Amy to report the CDC for a (relatively) local road trip, even if there is absolutely no need. The fact that this 72-hour time rule also covers a local day trip completely kills the possibility of spontaneity and is far too controlling to belong to any healthy relationship. Sheldon and Amy have an official appointment night for “every two Thursdays of the month and in the case of five Thursdays a month, Date Night will be the third Thursday.” While the actual distribution of Date Nights may vary from couple to couple (some may do it once a week or more, some may only every two months), the idea of regularly planning and engaging in a certain night of appointments is a good idea for any relationship – it can keep the romance and connection alive and guarantees a little time to dress up for each other and look nice – is particularly important – is particularly important for live partners who can only see. We`re sweating each other! The full relationship agreement allows for cosmetic surgery, as they say, “every party must not undergo cosmetic surgery unless it must look like a Klingon.” What`s supposed to be funny, of course, is an allusion to Sheldon`s hatred for the change and love of Star Trek. But really, there is something deeply disturbing about a binding treaty that dictates what a partner should look like. If her agreement states that Amy must maintain a certain weight or hair color or prohibit the use of makeup or contact lenses, the alarm bell would ring – and while cosmetic surgery may not be as common as mascara, any operation is to be prevented (there is no restriction in the event of an accident, remember) is simply too far. When Amy first signed it in The Flaming Spittoon Acquisition (S5E10), she found it very romantic. With “The Spoiler Alert Segmentation” (S06E15), she called it a ridiculous contract just after Sheldon said she couldn`t move in with him.
She also appreciated that the agreement was binding. Let`s be honest, what longtime couple doesn`t agree to do such a thing (to the bare minimum) for a birthday? And putting it in black and white only ensures that everyone knows what is the expectation of a great opportunity. Admittedly, it is not usually codified on this scale, but it is actually quite normal to expect a partner to tell you when they will go on vacation. Under the agreement, Amy Sheldon must make it known at least 72 hours in advance. She must also check tire pressure (when travelling in the car) and check for vaccines.
