Storyline

House doesn't want Foreman and Thirteen to be together while they work in the same team and gives them a "split or quit" ultimatum. Until this issue has been settled, House doesn't want a real case. Flipping through some files in the ER, he decides to treat a priest who's lost his faith but nevertheless saw Jesus. Pretty soon however, it turns out to be a real case instead of the no-brainer House thought it would be. Cuddy's having her baby a Jewish naming ceremony. She asks House to be there, but it's not sure she actually wants him to come. Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>

Goofs

In House's last scene with Wilson, we get a clear view of House's digital wristwatch. The camera cuts to Wilson briefly, then back to House. But in that few seconds, several minutes have elapsed on the wristwatch. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Chris Taub: Funny the two people in the room who think that relationships are easy, are both single.
Dr. Lawrence Kutner: I don't think they're easy. That's why I think if you find something that could be good, that you should hang on to it.
Dr. Chris Taub: Everything could be good. Very little ever is.

Astonishing Performance by the Underrated Jimmi Simpson
7 November 2009 | by (Queens, NY) – See all my reviews

Thirty-something actor Jimmi Simpson, best known for sporadic appearances as "Lyle, the Intern" on the Letterman show, does a super-cool yet sympathetic portrayal of a Catholic priest who comes to Princeton-Plainsboro after hallucinating the bleeding Christ at the door of his parish house in a ghetto neighborhood in New Jersey.

Father Bresson has not been treated kindly by the Church and has lost his faith. He remains a priest, he explains, because "it's my only marketable skill". Victim of a false but damaging accusation of inappropriate contact with a young male parishioner, he has been bounced from one parish to another ever since. Yet he is so cool and self-contained, with an appealing iconoclasm, you have to like him if you have any youth in you. He also is that rarity: a patient who is the equal of House in intellect and wit--so much so that House takes to hanging out in Father Bresson's room in the ICU, not to treat or diagnose but for theological discussions!

Regrettably, Jimmi Simpson has too little screen time in this episode, and through most of that he naturally enough is flat on his back. Yet he still is able to use to good effect his best features: open, Nordic face, expressive eyes and a delivery that is articulate but in no way stagey or affected. Even his throwaway lines are clearly understood.

I hope that Fox Network can find roles for this still youngish actor in which he can really shine.
