Another episode where one patient turns into two, although the circumstances are a bit unique. See more »


When patient takes picture of House, she would need time to develop it. If any time lapse would have occurred, then House wouldn't be announcing just discovered facts he just learned from her, coming from her room. Her camera was no a Polaroid, and the picture was a professionally developed 8x10 matte. There was no way for that to get developed and delivered to his team that fast. Apparently it was found by his team in her file. Medical files would not be allowing personal photos of medical personnel in their file. See more »


Dr. Lisa Cuddy: Did you give cortical steroids to speed the baby's lung development?
Dr. Gregory House: No, I dropped an anvil on its chest to prevent lung development. I'm trying to extinguish the human race one fetus at a time.

Never Give Up but sometimes be rational and logical
10 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode was much much better than the "one day one gloom" or some of the tritter episodes earlier. It was welcome change. Sure, it was no way flawless but definitely watchable and the conversation not irrelevant. Like other reviewers pointed out "that" moment with House was really touching. It is not going to change him or made him do anything different but it definitely made him "think" for a while even after that happened. Sure the writers thought to make Cuddy the Hero and House has gotten one wrong. But you cant really say it that way. House understood Cuddy and he backed off which is strange for a man who usually gets his way. Well, this episode belong to women. Cuddy is happy, Cameron fighting with her feelings and doesn't seem to realize one bit what Chase thinks of her. She says everything except that "one" thing looking at that photo. All in all no matter how debatable this episode was I still think it is worth a watch and I felt good. I love "House" TV series and this is one of the good episodes. All that starts well, ends well.
