Goofs

During the operation in which the patient Sarah has her skull opened in order for the surgical team access to her brain, the camera regularly closes up on Sarah's face. During these angles, its blatantly clear the fake brain and "top of the head" are much too high to look even remotely realistic, rising at least several inches too high. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Gregory House: No cure then. Pros are you might delay the onset of symptoms, give her a year maybe three. She's still dead before you're 45. The question is: are those few years worth risking the rest of your life in medicine?
Dr. Eric Foreman: [Foreman thinks for a moment] No.
Dr. Gregory House: There, wasn't so hard was it?
Dr. Eric Foreman: Thank you.
Dr. Gregory House: You're welcome.
[Foreman starts to leave]
Dr. Gregory House: Unless you love her.
[Foreman stops and turns around]
Dr. Gregory House: If you love her, you do stupid things.

Needful things
29 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A special ed teacher collapses in her classroom, and the team wants House to stay away from her as much as possible, as she is perpetually cheery and unruffled by events. Cuddy continues to have problems with the baby. Foreman finds himself in a sticky situation regarding 13's course of treatment. Cameron is put in charge in Cuddy's absence, and House tries without much luck to make Casmeron's life miserable. A lot going on, although the Foreman-13 romance is wearing thin and the Cuddy-baby deal is just plain tiresome. The episode is too soap opera-y for its own good. I did get a kick out of the teacher, however. House saves her, but wait until you see the look on his face at the end. He really cannot stand nice people.
