Goofs

When Cameron and Chase (later joined by Foreman, Sharon, and House) are eating dinner in a restaurant, Cameron begins the scene with her fork in her left hand and knife in the right. The camera cuts to Chase, and we can see the fork in her right hand and nothing in her left; the way it remains for the rest of the scene. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Gregory House: He needs a new kidney. I was thinking the kidney people might have some.

A Personal Favorite
17 July 2006 | by (Anaheim, CA) – See all my reviews

Everybody can pick out the great episodes of House - "Three Stories", "Pilot", "No Reason" - so I am going to try and point out the "diamonds in the rough." It opens up rather interestingly, complete with a couple gems from Bryan Singer and a shocking change of pace in the episode. I, for one, sure fell for it hard.

I used to watch CSI a lot and I notice a lot of similarities between it and House - foremost an infallible lead character who exercises ample amounts of deductive reasoning power. In the case of House, the sin of plot repetition is forgiven because House gives their characters a lot more shading than in CSI.

Not only does this episode posit the mandatory philosophical dilemma (one that echoes the theme of a future episode, though I must say the future one perfects it), it deepens Dr. House himself. We start seeing a lot more of his outside activities (always a pleasure) and a little of his awkward side. I especially enjoyed the latter.

This episode is a classic that I again stress should not be rushed to but instead approached. Watch the previous 11 chapters before enjoying this one. The impact will be so much more the greater.
