Did You Know?


Plastic Surgeon: Tell me what you don't like about yourself. References Nip/Tuck, where doctors McNamara and Troy frequently ask their patients this question during their consults. See more »


A patient with a pacing wire has his pacemaker turned off while Dr Kutner stands by holding up defibrillator paddles. Turning off a pacemaker will make the heart slow down and stop, not fibrillate. Even if fibrillation was a danger, paddles would not be used - external defibrillation pads would be placed on the patient's chest and back well in advance to avoid wasting time. See more »


Dr. Amber Volakis: [refering to Dr. Terzi] Why did you hire her?
Dr. Gregory House: Because she has way more diagnostic experience than the other swimsuit models I was considering.

You haven't lived until you hear House tell a kid with an Elephant Man face "You are ugly!" The team is treating a kid who is about to have plastic surgery to get rid of his Elephant Man face, but the kid suddenly gets very sick. House and Plastic Surgeon Man clash over the cause, to the point where House angrily fires him -- and which Cuddy immediately rescinds. Michael Michele (hubba hubba!) is back as the CIA doctor whom House adores. This leads to some very funny results. Wilson is on screen a fair amount, serving as House's conscience as House wrestles with his mindset over the luscious CIA doctor. House worried that she's making him dopey and clouding his judgment, which Wilson explains is what happens to a man around a beautiful woman. "But I'm not just any man!" cries House. Cuddy and House have a couple of nice moments together, insulting each other while clearly they'd rather be fornicating somewhere. This is one of the series' funniest episodes.
