Goofs

Cuddy brings Becca for evaluation through the ER. While Cameron disagrees with Cuddy's diagnosis, Cuddy admits her. In the next scene, Cameron is still doing the fetal evaluation. Cameron is a senior attending in the ER, so an obstetrician should be doing the fetal evaluation. However, this was probably done intentionally as a cost-saving measure to avoid paying another actor to do only one scene. See more »

Joy and Sorrow - a great mixture, House-style
20 December 2008 | by metratonicSee all my reviews

A truly atmospheric episode, it automatically became one of my favourites. The first scenes are like a a tribute to psycho thrillers. Even the colours adhere to the mood. And the House vs. Cuddy tension, although predictable, managed to shake me. He is cruel! Really, since the end of Season 4, House has become even more of a misanthrope. Which makes the episodes more moving, sad and.. fun. Of course, all is merged with moments of pure joy, the contrast makes the experience better. The episode title can be either ironic or... not really. For it is clearly about joy, though it's filled with sorrow. The additional characters, however, were flat and somewhat banal. (Especially that pregnant girl. Touching, but predictable. We've already seen that story on TV.) Which, in that particular case, is not such a bad thing, for these characters are like... let me use a metaphor... the raw, basic colours used as a background to outline the portrait of the main characters/ to convert the main suggestion more clearly. Like in old movie posters. Meaning: the episode is not too elaborated or too multi-layered. But it is elegant and influential. I absolutely loved it. And if you're in the right, dark mood, you will too.
