Goofs

In this episode Dr. House plays a record to induce a seizure in a patient, but no record or record player is seen in the room. Instead House is seen using a bass guitar amplifier and speaker cabinet. It makes no sense for the sound heard to be coming out of that equipment. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Gregory House: Minus five for ingratitude. No "Thank you, Doctor." "Here's a bottle of codeine for your troubles, Doctor."

For whom the bell tolls
28 November 2007 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

Excellent episode both for the patient and the winnowing down of the new team to the final three. A grunge rocker (Jeremy Renner of ROAD TRIP) begins coughing up blood. Problem is, he is a heroin addict and drunkard who doesn't care if he lives or dies. House challenges the remainder of the candidates to solve this guy's problem or face expulsion. Predictably, they all try a little too hard. It is particularly interesting to watch the hard-driving Amber trying to relate to the nihilistic rocker, who harbors a very special secret. House has interesting set-tos with both Cuddy and Wilson, for very different reasons. Or are they? Whom he fires at the conclusion is a major shocker. But is he for real? Great stuff.
