The Dumpling Paradox - S1-E7

Factual error: Sheldon has a rigid schedule. Halo Night is known to be on Wednesday night. Penny sleeps on the couch in Sheldon and Leonard's apartment. The following morning, Sheldon cannot watch Doctor Who on BBC America because Penny is sleeping on his spot on the couch. He states that he has been watching Doctor Who every Saturday at 6:15 a.m. The following morning should be Thursday.

The Euclid Alternative - S2-E5

Question: Though it comes up in other episodes as well, this one is focused on Sheldon needing a ride everywhere he goes because he can't drive, not to mention his not being welcome on the bus. Of course, this story element would be nonexistent if there was a simple answer, but it does beg the question: Does Pasadena not have taxicabs?

Chosen answer: It does. The variable cleanliness of the cab and the habit of taxi drivers to engage customers in small talk would be too much for Sheldon to handle, and not an option for him.
