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: [to Forman, Chase, and Cameron about the new, attractive, female pharmacy rep] Okay, so who is it? Come on, she's sleeping with one of you.
[House turns to Cameron]
Dr. Gregory House: Oh, God, please tell me it's you!
Dr. Allison Cameron: She buys lunches! She doesn't...
Dr. Gregory House: Don't worry. You're not gay, you're "adventurous."

Right up there with L&O
26 March 2006 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

Exceptional acting on the part of the actress playing the wife of a faded baseball legend makes this episode stand right up there with the very best of the greatest show in TV history, LAW & ORDER. She is by turns sassy and frightened, elated and depressed, and uses a minimum of dialog to express her chaotic feelings. The ending of this episode, involving the athlete standing before death's door, is also a stunner, which is often the case with HOUSE -- but not always. Of course, you'll have to watch it to see what happens because I'm not telling. SPORTS MEDICINE also contains the legendary clinic waiting room scene where House diagnoses several waiting patients in about a minute's time. The guy with the sticking contact lenses is not to be missed, as is House's solution to the man's problem.
