Storyline

On his editor's retirement party, famous author Fletcher Stone collapses and hits his head. The staff has their work cut out for them trying to find out what's wrong with Stone because he has agraphia and aphasia. Besides that, House is out of town. He and Stacy are in Baltimore to meet the Medicaid review officer. Due to bad weather, all flights are canceled so House and Stacy are stuck on the airport. Luckily, as a precaution, Stacy booked a room in a near-by hotel for both her and House. Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>

Continuity Error
24 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the airport, there is an instance where a shot pans on House and Stacy sitting side by side. Then, it cuts to a frontal view of Stacy. In the first shot (the one that pans), Stacy has a pencil in her mouth. A fraction of a second later, when the shot cuts to the frontal view, the pencil is behind Stacy's ear. This is a rare editing mistake on this show!

Still, a wonderful show, and a great episode. It proves that House is House, and that nothing stops him from working his magic. Once again, genius; another medical mystery that is no match for House, and another demonstration of his mantra: "Everybody lies."
