Cuddy is definitely cuddable
3 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

House must deal with a fainting fitness instructor who harbors a Big Secret that could save her life. Meanwhile, Cuddy take over House's office while hers is being renovated. And the Indian doctor does a very bad thing: He creates a website in House's name, and collects fees from folks who e=mail him about their maladies. Not surprisingly, this backfires on him when one of the folks shows up at the hospital, gunning for House. The episode is mostly House and Cuddy sparring, and gets pretty intense and erotic near the end. Lots of fun, especially when Cuddy gets rid of House's furniture in retaliation for something he does to her office. Everyone ends up sitting or lieing on the floor. Cuddy especially looks fetching sitting or standing in House's empty office.
