Goofs

When Thirteen and Kutner were searching the apartment, they should have found the note Amber left for Wilson, saying she was going to pick up House. Had House known Amber came to pick him up, they would have arrived at the diagnosis sooner... not that it would have made any difference to the outcome. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Richmond: Her heart won't stop racing, no idea what's causing it.
Dr. Gregory House: Sure it wasn't the bus that landed on her?

One of the Finest Moments in Television History
30 December 2008 | by GundersonRocksSee all my reviews

Incredible. "House's Head" (the episode prior to this one) was the buildup, establishing a surreal, emotional approach never before seen on "House." THIS is the payoff. Save for some episodes of "The Shield", I have never witnessed a more deeply felt and powerful episode on television EVER. It will take a whole lot of effort for the writers to top themselves on this one. "Wilson's Heart" could have easily become sentimental and clichéd, but it looks too deep and sees too much honest pain. We are finally able to see that House is not a monster, that his misery extends far past his leg injury. We can finally look into his soul and see a resonating sadness and loneliness surrounded by a lifetime of pain. This is a masterpiece.
