Did You Know?


The episode takes place against the background of a strike by nurses at PPTH. In reality this was the first episode which followed the resumption of production following the 2007-08 Writers Guild of America strike, which halted production of many US TV shows, including House MD. See more »


When House and Dr. Robert Chase are bowling, just before House leaves, Chase bowls a strike. But when Chase looks around for House you can see the pin-setter lifting 3 pins in his lane. See more »


Dr. Gregory House: [Both are on dirty-linen duty for breaking the "custody" rules over Wilson] Where are you two going Friday night?
Dr. Amber Volakis: Dinner at L'Auberge.
Dr. Gregory House: You're lying.
Dr. Amber Volakis: Of course I am.
[Wilson is out of hearing-range around the corner giggling to himself]

Not House at his best
29 April 2008 | by xredgarnetxSee all my reviews

House is in open war with Amber in NO MORE MR. NICE GUY, but the episode drags and House is way beyond his normal curmudgeonly self. After awhile, in fact, you wish he'd just disappear. While House and Amber duke it out, Wilson stays largely silent and Cuddy ends up playing referee. The patient this time around is a middle-aged man afflicted with being too nice, which House figures has to be due to a disease. No one can be that nice without being sick, he reasons. The man is married to one of the hospital nurses, played by an amazing actress (I think she is Bobbie Bergstrom) whose face in several closeups reveals an astonishing range of changing emotions. The episode falls flat all too quickly, however, and all I can think of is perhaps different writers may have been involved. Who knows? Maybe it's the director's fault. For those who have missed the old team, by the way, they play a bigger role in this episode. It's funny to see Cameron and her lookalike, 13, sitting near each other in a couple of scenes as they simultaneously try to figure what's wrong with their patient -- and House.
