* Sheldon: Obviously, you’re not well suited for three-dimensional chess, perhaps 3 dimensional Candyland would be more your speed.

Sheldon has a meltdown. Leonard warns her to go before Sheldon starts spraying her down with Lysol. Late that night, Sheldon is doing cultures to find out if he is going to be sick and with what. Later, Sheldon is in bed and coughing. He takes his temperature and screams for Leonard. Leonard, meanwhile, is running for the door and gets out as fast as he can. Sheldon is still walking around the apartment calling out to him. Sheldon calls Leonard’s cell phone. He pretends he’s at work. At Howard’s house the phone rings and his mother screams for him to answer it. It’s Leonard and he’s calling to warn him that Sheldon is sick.
