Goofs

When Dr. Sebastian looks at the pills, there are four in the little glass, but when he pours them on the table after a cut there are only three pills, also in a different order. When he pours the last two pills, the order is pink pill, the last two pills, blue pill, but you can also see him pouring pink, blue and the two other pills. When the camera shows Sebastian and the table, the order is: pink, white, blue. After that the order of the pills is messed up again. See more »

Quotes

[last lines]
Dr. Gregory House: [looking down at Dr. Charles, who's leaving the hospital] It's not about the kids dying every eight seconds, it's about the media striking. Adulation and pats on the head.
Dr. James Wilson: That's your problem with him, isn't it?
Dr. Gregory House: Look at, loves them, eats them up.
Dr. James Wilson: Yeah, the man actually enjoys what he does.
Dr. Gregory House: Listen, *I* saved his life. That means I get credit for every life *he* saves from here and now.
Dr. James Wilson: I'll make sure Stockholm knows this.

Jealousy, thine name be House
26 August 2006 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

"TB" takes an unusual twist: House is compelled to treat an internationally famous doctor who treats Africans for TB and who browbeats pharmaceutical makers to donate more and more of their drugs to his cause. The doctor himself now has a bad case of TB. Or does he? This is what House must discover. The episode is full of amusing bits as House is clearly insanely jealous of the guy, who is a smooth talker, completely self-absorbed and handsome as the devil. He very quickly wins over Cameron, and this makes House even crazier. Ron Livingston of "Office Space" fame plays the charismatic physician, and is one of the better guest stars to grace the house of House. As the Season 2 episodes roll on, Wilson has begun to play a larger role as House's only real friend. But his friendship is being stretched thin by House's antics.
