Quotes

Dr. Gregory House: Your parents made you screwed up by not screwing you up.
Dr. Jessica Adams: How does briefly wishing I was screwed up make me screwed up?
Dr. Gregory House: It's normal to be screwed up. It's really screwed up to romanticize it. Guess that's why you wanted to work with prisoners.
Dr. Jessica Adams: It's why I wanted to work with you.

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.
