Goofs

Calcium carbonate is occasionally used as an anti-diarrhoeal (as indicated by House while discussing the case with Foreman in Cuddy's office). However, he later defends its use in Adam by reasoning that he had constipation. See more »

Braeden Lemasters out acts the adults
25 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The boy playing the autistic child in this episode shows that child actors do not get the credit they deserve. For a ten year old boy, even a professional actor, to portray a character without dialouge, the feat is outstanding. As the other reviewers, (and yes, I'm a guy too) I broke down at the end of the episode. Watching Braeden emote the stiffness and wandering gaze of an autistic child, while reaching out toward House and touching a part of the "outside world", had me in tears. (And did you notice House playing with the game in a later episode?) As an exceptional education instructor, I always view shows that deal with the special population with a grain of salt. Cudos to the writing staff for this one, and once again, a super big round of applause for Braeden. He definitely should get some sort of award for this role.
