House M.D.: No Reason (2006)
Season 2, Episode 24
People you are missing the point
31 August 2007
Warning: Spoilers
The point of the whole episode are not the hallucinations. I saw the episode 4 times or more here in Portugal. And lately I figured it out. At least I think I have.

House's attacker says this thru the episode: You think that the only truth that matters is the truth that can be measured. Good intentions don't count, what's in your heart doesn't count, caring doesn't count. A man's life can't be measured by how many tears are shed when he dies. It's because you can't measure them, just because you don't want to measure them, doesn't mean it's not real. Andeven if i'm wrong, you're still miserable. Did you really think that your only purpose as to sacrifice yourself and get nothing in return? No. You believe there is no purpose... to anything. Even the lives you save you dismiss. You turn the one decent thing in your life and you taint it, strip it of all meaning. You're miserable for nothing. I don't know why you'd want to live. You pretend to buck the system, pretend to be a rebel, claim to hate rules. But all you do is substitute your own rules for society's. And it's a nice,simple rule: tell the blunt, honest truth in the starkest,darkest way.And what will be, will be. What will be, should be. And everyone else is a coward. But you're wrong. It's not cowardly to not call someone an idiot. People aren't tactful or polite just because it's nice. They do it because they've got an ounce of humility. 'Cause they know that they will make mistakes. They know that their actions have consequences. And they know that those consequences are their fault. Why do you want so bad not to be human, House? ----------------------

Then, right at the end, House says "You don't thin that! You KNOW it because you're in my head!". There. The fact that everything is inside his head. House never got to know Jack. He can't know how he actually acts. I'm starting to think these are his own opinions. Those so buried in his mind that he no longer remembers them.

Also, Dr.Wilson talks about the "not wanting an healthy leg". But that on,e well, House and Wilson know each other for a long time. He knows how Wilson acts.

So, I think this reveals a lot about House. And is it just me or after the "I don't know why you'd want to live.", when House turns around, he's crying? That shows us that House is STILL an human. He is still affected by things we all are. he ain't just a robot with an extreme logic and medical knowledge.

And that is all. My own little opinion.
