Goofs

When House and Wilson are chatting in the bar, after Wilson breaks the window with the bottle, the sandwich in House's hands changes between shots. First time, its right edge is towards House;s right; next shot, it's bitten on both sides and then alternates. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Allison Cameron: What do you think House would send, the "Gentle Comfort" arrangement, or the "Warm Thoughts" bouquet? I mean, if he wasn't an ass.
Dr. Robert Chase: Send one of those giant cookies shaped like a coffin. His mom would believe it was from him.

Series 5 - better and better....
15 October 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A cracking episode.

After a dubious fourth series - season five finds a welcome return to form for one of the most enjoyable shows on television.

I was very worried with the addition of "new blood" last season but time and character development has paid of well. You don't see enough of the three previous support Doc's (will they be around much longer? - who knows) but the cast is at last working.

Can't say too much about the plot but it's one of the most enjoyable and well written since the one from the second or perhaps first series when you find out about House's leg injury.

You have to love September/October for television.
