Secrets from House's past are revealed. Written by Jesse Sanchez

MRI magnets aren't "switched on" like the dialogue suggests (any more than you have to switch on a refrigerator magnet). The computers and imaging equipment are switched on, but the magnet itself is always functional. See more »

Good to have the guys back together!
9 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First, I have to say that I've always been a huge fan of House and Wilson as best friends. The two have a great dynamic. They are very similar in ways, and in others they are at completely opposite ends of the spectrum. They're hysterical together! And I missed that...

The episode reminds me of why I like their friendship so much, and of why I missed Wilson after Amber's death. The episode also delves into House's past and his issues with his father. There's a surprise thrown in that I didn't really see coming. It should make for some interesting episodes to come, though. Cuddy's role, while brief, is very funny.

Overall, it's an enjoyable episode with a lot of pranks, mischief, some painful (in a good way) moments, and fun. I highly recommend this episode.

OH! And House's ring tone kills me! It's Mmm Bop by the Hanson Brothers! I used to love those guys when I was little. Just the fact that House has that song as a ring tone cracks me up.
