Trivia

Joel Grey, the actor who plays Ezra Powell, played the Wizard of Oz in the Broadway show "Wicked". As Dr. House examines Powell behind a blanket, House says "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain," a quote from The Wizard of Oz (1939). See more »

Goofs

When checking Mark (rhinovirus) in the examination room, the position of Dr. House's fingers changes. In the first shot, House's index finger is positioned above Mark's right eyebrow. The immediately following shot has the index finger positioned above the nose in the middle of the forehead. (Mark does not flinch in pain.) 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.
