Trivia

In the scene where Thirteen examines Spencer for spider bite, no body double was used. Angela Gots (Spencer) actually appeared fully nude, which surprised Olivia Wilde (Thirteen). See more »

Goofs

When Dr. Taub examines a patient's eyes with a direct ophthalmoscope, he correctly examines the patient's right eye with his own right eye, holding the ophthalmoscope in his right hand. But when he moves to examine her left eye, he continues to hold the ophthalmoscope in his right hand, and uses his right eye to examine the patient's left eye. In this position, it is impossible to get close enough to actually see the patient's retina, unless he gets so close that he would actually be kissing the patient, a practice frowned upon by most medical establishments. To examine the patient's left eye, he should have moved the ophthalmoscope to his own left eye, held it in his left hand, and he should have moved around to the patient's left side, to examine her left eye to left eye.

Quotes

Dr. Eric Foreman: I just spoke to my brother.
Dr. Gregory House: And by "brother" you mean?
Dr. Eric Foreman: I mean my parents' other son.
Dr. Gregory House: Wow. Same dad.
Dr. Eric Foreman: Got a call from your P.I. last week. You lied, you *did* have me investigated. You've been taunting the team with what you learned, but you never came after me. Means you couldn't find anything.
Dr. Gregory House: You're right.
[Foreman starts to walk away]
Dr. Gregory House: That's because you haven't done anything stupid, spontaneous, or even vaguely interesting since you were 17. And that's just *sad*.

decent at best
3 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

house M.D. was an intelligent series mainly with Hugh Laurie character but even for a fictional show, characters got away with a lot of illegal things that wouldn't be possible in real life nor trying to attempted. I also didn't like Olivia Wilde character she was a tool and a disgrace. When characters were at work personal matters and sexual harassment was at a high unrealistic level. The overall series was mostly predictable. house m.d. show was decent at best. lucky 13 was one of the worst episodes because of the sexual unrealistic matters at the clinic between house and the rest of the crew against Dr. Remy's character. The episode was overall boring and Dr. Remy spiral of destruction was disgusting to watch, Foreman was lame as well.
