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 »

:Point of Trivia
27 July 2011 | by (Mountain View, Ca) – See all my reviews

I liked this episode as well as the others. But I was also amused by the writer, who knew his literary and movie history. The afflicted pitcher is named 'Hank Wiggen'. He has a very well-known literary namesake. 'Henry Wiggen' was the pitcher-narrator of three excellent baseball novels by Mark Harris. The most well-known of them is 'Bang the Drum Slowly', which was made into a television drama, and then a movie in 1974, starring Michael Moriarity as the pitcher and Robert De Niro (in his debut movie) as an afflicted catcher.

The Wiggen in 'House' is hardly the cynical, insightful observer of the novels, but using the same name is a nice touch.
