At the end, Foreman is working out his memory that had been damaged by the brain biopsy Cameron performed on him to try to save his life in the previous episode (Euphoria: part 2). He has a deck of cards with the name of a drug on one side and its medical use on the other. He is trying to remember what the drugs are for. He tries several cards with no success. At the end, he stares at a card and when he turns it over, he smiles, indicating he guessed correctly. The name in the card is Modafinil, a memory improving drug. See more »


Flipped film: when the baby is first shown on ECMO, the numbers on the crib are reversed, and there is a net stocking on the baby's left leg. The view changes, the numbers are correct and the stocking is on the right leg. The view changes back to reversed numbers and left leg stocking. See more »


Dr. Gregory House: [patient refusing treatment after finding out she contributed to her baby's death] She said no.
Dr. Eric Foreman: So we get her declared unstable, appoint a medical proxy.
Dr. Gregory House: She was unstable, now she's sane. She's entitled to refuse treatment.
Dr. Eric Foreman: We have to change her mind, you can't just walk away.
Dr. Gregory House: Fine! Go in there and tell her that every day is a blessing! "So you killed your baby! Shake it off, think positive! At least you're alive!"... Hmm. Hard to sell when you don't believe it, huh? And you never believed it. ...

For those of you who enjoyed the TV version of HONEY I SHRUNK THE KIDS, you will be in for a pleasant surprise in this episode, as Hillary Tuck guest-stars as a young mother suddenly developing seizures and endangering her newborn. Tuck is a terrific young actress, and gives as good a performance as the distraught mom as any actress who has ever appeared on this show. And that's saying something. Meanwhile, Cuddy has asked Wilson to dinner. Is it a date? Wilson kind of thinks so, but House isn't convinced. Foreman is back, thank God, but he's not all there. He is suffering from an aphasia. He's also gotten way too nice and sweet and nonargumentative and at peace with himself and the world, something House makes plain he will not tolerate. Chase has had enough for the time being, and ends up on the baby ward for a few weeks. This move also has House alarmed. Hell, at this point everything is alarming House. And his leg keeps getting worse.
