Possible. But unless we get clear evidence of them getting rid of the relationship agreement, there's no reason to assume it's gone. That'd be called wishful thinking.

There was no clear evidence that Stephanie, Tenure or the 100's of other storylines that ended at the end of the episode were not go to be continued later either.

That's true. But after I don't know how many years, I think it's safe to say these things are dead.

Just like me! Tuning in for two and half seasons hoping that Lenny would get a decent storyline and equal air time.

It's the same thing...

And based on the fact that they're having a disagreement or argument or whatever you want to call it in the next episode, I'd say no, it doesn't cover it.

Why do you make an RA if it doesn't cover everything in a relationship, seems pretty pointless to me. 

I just don't get it why the writers thinks this is a funny plot. Having a written RA, is just not Lenny.

I am. It doesn't take much to put 1+1 together. If you believe the RA is just gone, do that. We'll come back to that when it's being mentioned again.

It's a relationship agreement.  It's there to prevent arguments.  If they are having one, they aren't using it.  If they are using it, they would append it.  Since they don't append it, and they are still arguing, they aren't using it.  See, easy as 1 + 1.   Of course the writers don't care about it.  The RA wasn't needed for Lenny, it's not something they would use, if they are being written as they had been previously.  It's just a way to get more Sheldon into the episode.  And that is the complaint about it.

So you'd actually prefer if they had a relationship agreement like Sheldon and Amy's? Because that's basically what you're implying. Now that would honestly upset me if they did, but it looks like the one they have just includes some basic rules like the restrictions to Leonard's gaming time, which is also the catalyst why they decided to have a relationship agreement in the first place. Not the fighting or the imperfect communication. The episode is called "The Romance Recalibration" for a reason, not "The Communication Recalibration" or "The Argumentation Recalibration".

I don't think that the romance became recalibrated in this episode, because they are still fighting in the next episode and no mention of this fantastic RA.

Yes, keep deleting my posts, I don't care. It's just another indicator for me that you're simply missing the point of this whole RA thing.

You can have a romantic relationship and still have fights.

Sure, and like everything else with Lenny that romantic relationship happen off-screen of course.

Actually, the reason it was hidden is because of the rules here.  I'm not the only one who reviewed the hidden post and kept them hidden.   It's the reason your posts yesterday were hidden.  

And you don't think it's there to prevent arguments?   Isn't the limiting of Leonard game time, in the RA, to prevent arguments between them, about his game time?

Yes, everything, with no exception, happens off-screen. I mean, except for the kiss and the hug in said episode, but let's just ignore that for no reason and pretend everything's going downhill.

In my mind it's there to prevent Leonard from ignoring her, so he can spend more time with her, but whatever man.

So, you're assuming what is in the RA.  

And if he does that, there won't be an argument, right? So it's to prevent an argument.

P: Okay, imagine your problems are a pen.
S: Okay.
P: Now imagine you're holding that pen.
S: Okay.
P: Now open your hand and let it go.
S: But I just got this pen. It's got my initials on it and everything. Look.
P: Sheldon, this isn't that hard.

That's the spirit, come over to the dark side. :sarcastichand:

If you like this RA idea @FileXxX that is totally fine, I will never tell you can't like it. 

But I will never ever think that this is a great idea from the writers, this is just bad writing to me from the writers who doesn't know what to do with Lenny.To be honest  I think that they are out of ideas for Lenny and when nothing else work for Lenny have them fight, because we know that Molaro think it is sooo funny when Lenny fights.

I'm not assuming what's in the RA, it's what @CaffeineBuzz said they put into the RA. The purpose of the video game time restriction is obviously not to prevent an argument, but to prevent Leonard to play video games all day. Of course they have one less thing to argue about, but still, that's not the point of the clause.

I'll stop discussing this with you now. You'll cling to whatever comes to your mind anyway, so there's no point trying to convince you otherwise.

If Leonard plays games all day, are saying there won't be an argument?

But that's the result of the clause, right?  If he plays the video games, there will be an argument.

That actually works both ways.

Actually the kiss and hug are part of Penny's imagination. Yeah Leonard has a long history of ignoring Penny.

The Lennies are already a small group. Nice to see some of them quarrelling among each other.

It appears only one is quarrelling.

I was talking about episode 10.14. Nobody ever said they hug in 10.13.

Doesn't mean any of them arguing loves Lenny any more or less than the any of the others.  Just means we have different opinions as to how they are being portrayed.  I don't doubt, in fact I know, File absolutely loves Lenny  We may not agree on what exactly the RA means or how either of us like it, but i don't doubt we both love Lenny.

you are right though hug and peck isn't exactly romantic. Reread 10x14 TR. Sheldon realized that Lenny was fighting. You would have thought he would bring up the RA. Although he does have a bad memory.
