Trivia

Poking fun at Foreman for having fired Thirteen, House says, "I just ran into Thirteen while she was clearing out her locker. My condolences, although it's not like she's the hottest woman in the world." In 2009, Olivia Wilde, who plays Thirteen, was voted number one on Maxim's Hottest Women List. See more »

Goofs

The opening scene in which Dibala is being served a civil subpoena, the man serving it cites to Title 18 of the United States Code section 1350. This section does not deal with genocide or crimes against humanity. Section 1350 concerns "Failure of corporate officers to certify financial records." The section dealing with genocide is section 1091. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Eric Foreman: [to Cameron and Chase about Thirteen] I know it might break us up. That's better than *definitely* breaking us up which is what would've happened.

I agree it can be skipped ...

But I liked it. My main thought when watching it was: the kids are finally growing up. Chase, Cameron, and Foreman each do things that they normally let House do, and this time they think for themselves. The results aren't pretty, but that's okay.

I don't know if the show is in its last season or not. I agree that it may have passed its prime, but I thought that the last few episodes of season 5 (Amber's death and House ending up at the funny farm) were among the best bits of television I had ever seen.

I'm still optimistic that they will pull off something just as good this year.
