Trivia

The wall clock in the MRI room is labeled 'Stoia Tucker', which is also the pharmaceutical company in "TB or not TB" (#2.4) (Most likely from Chris Stoia, first assistant director on the show.) See more »

Goofs

When House is about to inject morphine into Powell's body, the amount of morphine in the syringe changes between the shots. The syringe is half-full when House is shot from the front, and only a quarter full when he is shot from behind his left shoulder. See more »

Gritty episode
9 October 2006 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

An almost unrecognizable Joel ("Cabaret"/"Remo Williams") Grey plays a world-famous researcher who collapses and nearly dies, and then wants House to "off" him on the QT. Not normally a moral dilemma for any veteran physician (I used to be a hospital employee, so I know), this particular case stops House from simply killing the guy as House scrambles to figure out a way to save him. The entire staff must come to grips with the issue of suicide and mercy killing, a common-enough hospital practice but not so common to House's young staff, especially the doe-eyed Cameron. Grey is great as the suffering senior. Again, I am being asked for more lines than I care to write. So in that case, let me point out it will be worth keeping a close eye on Cameron in this episode.
