Trivia

The opening shows the patient driving a dragster, however it is no a top fuel car but a Top Alcohol dragster, and would not have achieved the time and speed that is shown after the race ends. E/T was mid 4.5 at 327mph , and the typical times are in the 5 seconds at 270mph. This is a huge difference in drag racing. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Gregory House: You idiot.
Dr. Samira Terzi: Who are you calling an idiot?
Dr. Gregory House: Whoever knew that John was stationed in Brazil, not Bolivia.
Dr. Samira Terzi: Brazil?
Dr. Gregory House: [House turns and faces Agent Smith] Well, then, I guess, I'm talking to you, idiot.
CIA Agent Smith: It's the same region. It's the same parasite,same diseases.
Dr. Gregory House: But not the same language. In Bolivia, chestnuts are chestnuts.Brazil, on the other hand, has Castanhas-do-Pará, literally, "Chestnuts from Pará."Because it would be stupid for people from Brazil to call them Brazil Nuts.
CIA Agent Smith: So he ate Brazil nuts. ...

Oh No! Not Her!
14 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love Hugh Laurie and am a huge fan of this show. It is, without any doubt, one of the best programs on television. However, why the addition of Michael Michelle? (sp.) She almost completely ruined one of another television program that could not be surpassed, "Homicide: Life on the Street." A less talented and more charisma challenged actress never appeared in any medium. I am very disappointed in whoever responsible amongst the House production teem decided this was a good creative choice. House doesn't need the addition of someone who just ruins the show. What were they thinking? Did they possibly believe this would give the program sex appeal. I would rather see the other characters, especially Wilson, have a bigger part in the proceedings. I can only hope this is only a phase and that dear Michelle moves on quickly. House has not been up to standards previously met and this certainly makes things no better. Hugh Laurie and the rest of the excellent cast deserves better than this.
