Goofs

House says that the woman with the tumor and her husband cannot have blue eyed children for they both have brown eyes, so revealing her unfaithfulness. Actually blue eyes are a recessive trait, brown eyed people can have blue eyed children.

Blue-eyed parents can also have a brown-eyed child in rare circumstances where one parent has a broken HERC2 gene and the other has a broken OCA2 gene. See more »

Mrs. Simms: Oh, please. Save your pathetic insincerity for your boyfriend.

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.
