Trivia

House: Because we need to take the center square to block. Referencing the TV series The Hollywood Squares (1966) and its several successors. The game is basically a giant-sized version of Tic-Tac-Toe, where the contestants listen to a celebrity answer a question and determine if it's true or false. If they're correct they "get the square." As in regular Tic-Tac-Toe, taking the center square is usually necessity. See more »

Goofs

When House is trying to put the files away in the nurses station, a file on the counter keeps changing positions. Initially, House's right arm leans on it but on the next shot the file is further to the left and it can barely be seen. Then, it moves under House's arm again and, finally, further left again.
