Trivia

The operation that House performs on the mother and fetus in this episode is closely based on a Michael Clancy photograph called "Fetal Hand Grasp", which documents a 1999 operation on a 21 week old fetus with spina bifida. During that operation, Clancy photographed what he describes as the child reaching out of the incised uterus and grasping the surgeon's finger. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Eric Foreman: This is definitely different.
Dr. Robert Chase: [looking at a photograph of House] It looks almost like...
Dr. Cameron: ...He's caring.

Pro-life...anti-plot
21 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am fine with profile stuff...but this episode is not true to any characters, there is no risk, it is all roses. Upto this point (from Season 1 to 3) this is nearly the most cliché' and least well written...with the exclusion of the poor way they did the evil cop...oh and every time House mentions things being "evil" when he does not believe in "evil". I don't want to have to throw spoilers in, so let me just say this, if you are pro-life, but also pro-story arc you will not like this episode, if you are pro-life and hope for House to find pro-life, you will like this episode, if you are pro-choice you will hate this episode. It is a bit of the old shark jumping moment (not in the term of the series, but in the term of the episode...since you can do a single shark jump episode).
