Quotes

Dr. Eric Foreman: You think he's right?
Dr. Lawrence Kutner: Who cares? You're a hypocrite. You don't ask her if she wants to be on the drug. But when there's a chance to help her get better suddenly you're letting her call the shots. That's not being noble. That's saving your own ass!
Dr. Remy 'Thirteen' Hadley: I'd feel worse if he destroyed his career.

Worst episode of House yet, and I'm a fan...
28 August 2013 | by (Tennessee, United States) – See all my reviews

Just really pedantic... SPOILER ALERT, in case you're stupid enough to believe that a person could scratch through the skull using only her Lee Press-On Hooker Nails...

I am a "House, M.D." fanatic, but this particular episode left me shaking my head in disbelief. First the patient/doctor who (completely unbelievably) scratches all the way through her friggin' SKULL to the - wait for it - BRAIN MATTER !!! recovers with just a BAND-AID on the temple, then Foreskin, oops I mean FOREMAN, violates a drug trial - compromises his MD ethics - with no consequences! Whoo hooo! I wish I was a Doc-Tah, so's I could trample all those pesky AMA rules! Oh, Lawdy, this episode of House, M.D. is the lamest one yet!!
