Quotes

Dr. Gregory House: [to Chase] Look, you got a choice. You can either tell the truth, hospital settles, family gets some money, they get to keep their house. Or you can keep up this lie, family gets punitive damages, they buy a jet, they move to Park Avenue and you have to find another career.
Dr. Robert Chase: You're not going to say anything?
Dr. Gregory House: I'm going to keep my mouth shut. Legally, it's better for me if you go down in flames.

Tricky
26 August 2006 | by xredgarnetxSee all my reviews

In a tricky episode similar to Season One's finale, Chase's "Mistake" may very well cost him his license, House his license, and turn the hospital into condo city. Chase has misdiagnosed a patient's condition, which proves fatal. Now a massive lawsuit looms. Stacy coaches Chase as to what he should tell his board of review. The episode is mostly told in a series of flashbacks and Rashomon-style narratives, and even has a supremely existential moment when Stacy enters House's flashback and House in the present crosses paths with House in the past. The narrative literally begins to curve through time at this point. Definitely worth a look. The Aussie who plays the pretty boy Chase is often underused. Not this time.
