Did You Know?


When Thirteen is in the bathroom stall, House's foot slides under the divider and touches her foot, making her jump. This is a possible reference to the June 2007 Larry Craig political scandal, when the senator was arrested for lewd contact in a men's restroom in the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. (The foot tap, regarding the scandal, signals a person's wish to engage in lewd conduct.) See more »


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 »


Thirteen: [about Amber] We should say goodbye.
Dr. Chris Taub: She didn't even like us.
Dr. Lawrence Kutner: We liked her.
Dr. Chris Taub: Did we?
Dr. Eric Foreman: We do now.

Can Wilson's heart take what is in House's head?
26 May 2013 | by calvinnmeSee all my reviews

In the previous episode, Amber,Wilson's girlfriend and former student and foil of House, has been found to be in a coma in the hospital because of injuries she sustained in a bus crash - the same bus crash that House was in. House, though, had walked away from the crash and wound up in a strip bar, suffering from partial amnesia.

House has no memories of what happened leading up to the crash which can only lead to the question, what was Amber doing on the same bus as House in this strange part of town in the middle of the night? This is the question House must answer to get to the root of the problems that Amber is having in the hospital. She appears to be dying, and the answer as to why this is happening and how to help her is locked inside House's head.

Now, all through season four, Amber and House have displayed some not very well disguised sexual tension, even though they are passive aggressive adversaries - first because House fired her, second because she became Wilson's lover. So the doubts are there for both Wilson and House. Did House and Amber meet somewhere while Wilson was at work and sleep together prior to the crash? Does this mean that Amber was - consciously or subconsciously - using Wilson all along to both get and get to House? Watch and find out.

This is a great episode of House among many great episodes of House that made me realize the show did not need the original cast to continue on as an innovative and interesting series.
