House says that the woman with the tumor and her husband cannot have blue eyed children for they both have brown eyes, so revealing her unfaithfulness. Actually blue eyes are a recessive trait, brown eyed people can have blue eyed children.

Blue-eyed parents can also have a brown-eyed child in rare circumstances where one parent has a broken HERC2 gene and the other has a broken OCA2 gene. See more »


Dr. Eric Foreman: It's some kind of game. House's own version of "Punk'd."
Dr. Allison Cameron: It's not House. It's Vogler. We can't let it get to us, we've got to stick together.
Dr. Robert Chase: Why?
Dr. Allison Cameron: What are you suggesting, we start slashing each other's throats?
Dr. Robert Chase: I'm suggesting it's a zero-sum game. Your loss is my win. That's not conducive to team play.
Dr. Eric Foreman: Which is what House seems to want. I'm with Cameron. May be a bad strategy, but I don't want to give House his satisfaction.

well, its time

I've kept quiet for 16 episodes because i am waiting for this program to show me something other than trial and error diagnostics, bullys, and braggards ...ken or chi mcbride is just another arrogant pain in the rectum ...give him a suppository and make him sit on cactus until the season ends or he commits suicide .... if dr house is such a great diagnostician why does he need 4 people to back him up ... all this blather is boring as the program ... i take more offense to house not shaving than his stupid treatment of other people ... i've had enough
