Goofs

When House is talking to his parents about his motorcycle and his dad says "You know what your problem is?" House replies "Shifting gears?". Motorcycles have the brakes on the right (handlebar is front brake, foot is rear brake). Shifting gears is done with the left foot. Since he has a problem with his right leg, it's braking that's difficult, not shifting gears. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Ken Hall: I ought to have this framed. My last bill from Princeton.
Carnell Hall: And I thought we were celebrating the fact that I actually graduated.
Ken Hall: I always knew you'd be able to graduate. What I didn't know was whether I would be able to pay for it.

Dad
26 August 2006 | by xredgarnetxSee all my reviews

Guest star Clifton Powell helps keep "Daddy's Boy" from melting into nothingness. A newly minted Princeton grad develops shocks and convulsions that has the team scrambling for answers. When that answer comes, it is a truly weird one, and "Boy" is as much about the lies we tell our children as it is about the kid's bizarre illness. Powell plays the boy's dad, and he has a lot of guilt to shoulder as the episode unwinds. His reactions to the kid's illness and his scenes with the increasingly sick son make the episode better than it actually is. House continues to moon over his ex-gal pal, the luscious Sela Ward, and frankly I wish he would get over it.
