Quotes

Dr. James Wilson: I'm in the trenches. I'm - I'm doing triage as best I can. You had the chance to end the war! How is someone like me supposed to keep fighting when someone like you - just walked away?
Dana Miller: When I left my job, a lot of people were furious with me. It was easier to be angry than to admit they weren't happy. They were stuck in a rut somewhere in their lives unable to move forward. What's your rut?

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!!
