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 »

An off episode
7 November 2007 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

House gets called away to take care of a sick CIA agent while Foreman and the Surviving Six take on a race car driver who may or may not have polio, among other considerations. To say the episode is slow-going is putting it mildly. The CIA schtick is boring, with the exception of the introduction of a drop-dead gorgeous CIA doctor (Michael Michele) whom House implores to have sex and/or come back to Princeton with him. The race car driver story is dull, although it ends up weeding out of one of the Surviving Six. Also, it turns out Foreman as the diagnostic leader appears to be wrong at every turn, and the team definitely lets him know it. Chase, Cameron, Wilson and Cuddy make brief appearances. Not one of the show's more sterling episodes, but House does get an interesting surprise at the end.
