Goofs

The patient in the examining room sticks a pointed knife blade into the Hot side (small) slot of the electrical socket shortly after House walks in. Sparks fly and the patient shudders and shakes as if he's being electricity shocked. What both Dr. House and the patient don't seem to know is that it's impossible to make a shock happen just by sticking a metal object into one slot of an electrical socket. As any electrician could tell you, current only flows in a closed circuit. For current to flow and a shock to occur, a knife-wielder would have to also be touching either the neutral slot or the ground slot of the socket. It's like touching only one node of a battery and expecting electricity to flow through your body; not going to happen. See more »

A sense of mystery
10 October 2007 | by xredgarnetxSee all my reviews

Let's clear up that odd title: It refers to how long a patient lies dead after attempting suicide, near the beginning of the episode. Those 97 seconds will figure prominently later in the story, which otherwise has House and the remainder of his original 40 (see last week) dealing with a crippled man who is dying faster than he should. Young (and sexy) actress Anne Dudek is back as a very sassy doctor looking to join House's team no matter what, as is veteran character actor Peter Jacobson as a wily and incisive plastic surgeon. The ending of 97 SECONDS is not for the squeamish, and proof of the brilliance of this show, which admittedly has had its uneven moments. To the show's producers: Just don't bring back David Morse (see last season), as much as I love the guy! That's one horse you beat to death several times over.
