Okay Episode, Although House's Speech Is Awesome
4 April 2006 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

The highlight of this episode is definitely House's speech at the end for the conference. The cat and mouse game between Vogler and House is fine, and it takes some interesting twists in this episode, but the patient's case is less than thrilling. Also, the development of House's relationship with Cameron is almost annoying here. (It gets more interesting later in the series.) However, to correct a comment made earlier: The overweight woman whom House thinks might be pregnant is NOT in this episode. That happened in the prior episode, "Heavy." House's clinic patient this episode is a very skinny woman whom House says HAS BEEN pregnant, although she denies having had sex in the last year. However, further symptoms suggest she is lying.
