Quotes

Dr. Gregory House: Who would you fire?
Dr. Allison Cameron: No one.
Dr. Gregory House: Not an option.
Dr. Allison Cameron: If everyone took a paycut and put in a few more hours, we could all stay for the same amount of money.
Dr. Gregory House: Figures you'd try to come up with a solution where no one gets hurt. The problem is the world doesn't work that way just 'cause you want it to.
Dr. Allison Cameron: Figures you'd stall and refuse to deal with the issue. Problem is, the world doesn't go away just because you want it to.

Heavy indeed
27 March 2006 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

A fat 10-year-old girl collapses and her symptoms do not seem all connected to her obesity, especially when she develops horrendous lesions on her chest. She eventually confesses to secretly taking diet pills, but even then the mystery is not solved. The solution ends up being fairly conventional, and helps to point out how easy it can be to overlook the simplest of answers. The actress playing the chubby gal is pretty convincing, although it becomes clear early on she is simply wearing "fat" makeup and a fat suit. Vogler is still on his mission to cut costs and the personnel in House's department, and the increasingly distracted Cameron starts to come apart at the seams. As always, House is the glue that holds everything together. The show by now has developed its own internal rhythm, and you find yourself going with the flow, even when things sometimes get downright silly.
