Quotes

Dr. Gregory House: Makes sense. Park's tiger mom and dad were so insufferable, she used to measure their affection in hours. Chase's careerist dad, and alcholoic mom were so indifferent, he's visibly awash. Your turn, what did you screwed up parents do to screw up your view of parenting?
Dr. Jessica Adams: They were good parents.
Dr. Gregory House: That's an oxymoron.

Probably the best episode in this recent season
19 November 2011 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

It was a good episode of 'House', most amusing. What was oddest about it was that three, apparently responsible, doctors enjoyed watching boxing. I wonder if they also enjoy watching dog fights and car accidents for fun.

I was a little disappointed that the reputation of syphilis as the 'great pretender' wasn't explored further.

It was right that Wilson got his come-uppance after being unkind enough, as a friend, to let poor house be left at home watching plebvision instead of at the boxing match.

I think that House' thesis about parents ( pretty much the same as Philip Larkins ) was shown to be flawed in the last case.
