Goofs

When trying to diagnose Amber, the team rules out diet pills because she is in liver failure, which couldn't have been caused by the pills. The liver failure could easily have been caused by massive blunt trauma from the bus crash that took out both her kidneys. See more »

Dr. Gregory House: I don't know. If she had any underlying condition, the accident could have exacerbated it.
Dr. James Wilson: Why were you with her?
Dr. Gregory House: [shouts] I don't know! I'm not hiding anything. I just don't remember. What else could damage her heart?

Dr. Gregory House: Wilson, don't get lost! I'm barely coherent. I need your help right now.

What more does anybody want from a TV series ?
11 June 2011 | by dimmorthemSee all my reviews

I tried finding something wrong with this episode. I could have, but I wouldn't have been objective. It was extremely moving. Wilson's Heart is simply touching, and probably the best House episode, if not the best TV series episode ever. It is puzzling, mysterious, romantic, realistic, tough. It doesn't let you pause and guarantees a tearful hour. Could not ask for better acting, and in no other episode has Wilson been the most important character, showing a very sensitive and touching side of him. You have to appreciate a character like Wilson, being invented almost opposite to House, however being able to face him. This series reflects perfectly the most important side of both House and Wilson's characteristics: House's Head, Wilson's Heart. Simply wonderful !
