In the first scene where House is playing video games in the coma patient's room, he picks up the drink from the coma patient's hand, and places it back there. You can clearly see the patient's thumb and arm moving. Trivia: The game House plays at the beginning of the episode is "Ninja Gaiden II" for the Xbox 360. See more »


At the beginning of the episode, Coma Guy's hand repeatedly moves when House takes and replaces his drink cup. See more »


Dr. Lisa Cuddy: [about Wilson] Tell him you're sorry.
Dr. Gregory House: I didn't kill her!
Dr. Lisa Cuddy: You were drunk and...
Dr. Gregory House: ...yeah! If her daddy hadn't been drunk she might've never been born so...
Dr. Lisa Cuddy: You called her up in the middle of the night. She was on the bus because of you.
Dr. Gregory House: I didn't ask her to come out. I wasn't driving the bus. I wasn't driving the garbage truck that hit the bus. And I did not prescribe her the flu meds that killed her.

Wilson announces his resignation and House spends the rest of the episode calling him an idiot. Cuddy plays therapist and makes House and Wilson sit in her office to hash things out. It doesn't work, of course. There's the usual sick patient of the week, but it doesn't hold a candle to the drama of Wilson's imminent departure. Lots of references to the departed Amber, maybe a few too many. Plus Amber's departure at the end of last season was overblown melodrama that is best forgotten. Not a particularly strong episode, all things considered. Methinks House has run its course. The next few weeks will tell.
