Trivia

House: So, think maybe Gray's Anatomy got it all wrong? House sarcastically alluded that Adam's liver cells were in the right place and that Henry Gray's Anatomy of the Human Body, one of the most reliable and comprehensive resources used by medical students and professionals, got the placement wrong.

Goofs

When Adam begins choking he moves both hands to his upper chest. When we see through Adams eyes again his hand is still on the blue glass. In the next shot his hands are still on his chest. See more »

Quotes

Dr. James Wilson: [to Cuddy about House] Don't you think the restraining order's a little too much? He's not actually going to have sex with a seventeen-year-old patient.
Dr. Lisa Cuddy: I didn't think he was going to ask me to dig a blood-stained carpet out of a dumpster either.
Dr. James Wilson: It might be in the long run.
[stops at the landing at the stairs]
Dr. Lisa Cuddy: Are we stopping here so House doesn't find us?
Dr. James Wilson: Unless you want to make out?

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.
