Did You Know?


House: You were late the other day 'cause you were having breakfast with Grammy Addams or Cousin Itt. Referencing two members of the creepy clan later known as the Addams Family. They began with a 1938 New Yorker cartoon, whose characters frequently reappeared (and evolved) over the next several decades. In 1964, the cartoon was made into a live-action TV series. Cancelled in 1966, the series went into syndication. It was later remade (twice) as a TV cartoon series and was the subject of two theatrical movies and one direct-to-video release. See more »


House tries to capitalize on returning the CEO to work, i.e. House expects the stock to go up after he heals him. In that case, he should have bought 'call options', not 'put options'. He could have written (sold) put options, but no broker would allow that on margin since options already are a way to create leverage. See more »


Dr. James Wilson: You know that everyone on that panel hates you. You know, the minute you recommend firing anyone they start discussing how big a bonus to give them.
Dr. Gregory House: That's just hurtful. The fact is, winning $100 from *you* is more pleasureable than winning $100 from her. Here's your five grand.
Dr. James Wilson: What five grand?
Dr. Gregory House: Just take it. Trust me.

Not the Best, Need To Improve
5 November 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

The show is losing its edge. The medical plot is not very good. House places his role to his best. The new team doesn't seem have a good chemistry. The Chinese Doctor girl in the team is annoying. Adams doesn't seem like a doctor character. If things don't pick up the show is unnecessarily inviting its inevitable doom. Foreman is a good replacement for Cuddy but the script writers need to use him better. The little games between House and Wilson seems non-existent. The suspense and excitement in the cases seen in previous seasons is lacking. Directors have to improve the character of the Chinese girl doctor. All in all if the plots and chemistry between the cast don't improve the House MD will lose his medical license!!!!
