Did You Know?


This is one of the few episodes in the series in which House's sarcasm and jokes are very minimal. See more »


When Foreman and Taub turn Amber to check the small of her back, Foreman switches from Amber's right side to join Taub on her left side, pushing on her leg to roll her over. For patient safety, either doctor would have grasped at the patient's shoulder and hip, turning Amber toward them (so she doesn't roll off the bed) while the other doctor checks her back.

Dr. Gregory House: Did you see the color of the sputum?
Bartender: I assume sputum means snot? Look, I see a lot of drunk chicks in here. I didn't have time to stop and analyze the color of your girlfriend's boogers.

Just keeps blowing my mind away
12 June 2008 | by emotionalcrippleSee all my reviews

I can safely say that House is one of the best T.V shows there ever was. This episode is by far the best, besides 'No Reason'. It was full of mystery, doubt and a great mix of emotions beyond your imagination. Luckily I watched it on my computer, so lets say I watched it more than once especially the ending. Just make sure you have soda and everything you'll need next to you, and that you emptied your bladder before even thinking about watchin that episode, coz you wouldn't dare get up in the middle of the show. Trust me! This shows keeps getting better, it just keeps blowing my mind away. Keep up the good job! Finally I can proudly say I watch TV series and I'm not an airhead!
