Storyline

A young woman swallows a bottle of sleeping pills - not to kill herself but to go to sleep, something she says she hasn't done in 10 days. Then her case deteriorates, but her partner is in a perfect position to help her. Meanwhile, House keeps falling asleep because living with Wilson has disrupted his sleep pattern. Cameron's mad at Foreman for swiping her ideas for a medical-journal article, and at House for letting him do it. Written by IowaSurvivor

Goofs

When Max is undergoing surgery for the liver transplant, she flat-lines and has to be resuscitated. When the camera pans to show the ongoing surgery, you can clearly see the abdominal apparatus is sitting far above where it should be, and it would be anatomically impossible for her to be laying at that angle.

Quotes

Dr. Allison Cameron: Is this just one of your experiments? You just wanted to see how I'd react to being screwed over by Foreman?
Dr. Gregory House: Nice idea, but no. This was just good old-fashioned laziness. Gotta hand it to Foreman though, he knew that you were a suck up and I don't give a crap. He successfully exploited us both.
Dr. Allison Cameron: Right. We're both victims. A simple heads up, that's all I needed. Maybe between your incredibly witty remarks about anal sex and Cuddy's breasts, you could have tipped me off.

Ethics be darned
10 September 2006 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

It's amazing how little cursing but so much blood and gore are featured on HOUSE, especially as the mood darkens on the show in the second season. This particularly graphic episode deals with a young woman in need of a new liver, and the issue of whether her girlfriend should donate a piece of her compatible liver in light of certain private information House and his team possess. Absolutely nobody comes off looking good in this episode, and this includes the two women, both of whom are painted in less than flattering tones. The always-idealistic Cameron learns a hard lesson by tale's end, but it's for the better. Roomies Wilson and House by now have become the new Oscar and Felix, and their sophomoric antics help lighten things a bit.
