Did You Know?


House: Twenty-nine-year-old Special Ed teacher coughs up blood all over Corky. Referencing the TV series Life Goes On (1989-1993), which revolved around the life of Charles "Corky" Thatcher (Chris Burke), a boy with Downs' Syndrome who mainstreamed into regular life. See more »


During the operation in which the patient Sarah has her skull opened in order for the surgical team access to her brain, the camera regularly closes up on Sarah's face. During these angles, its blatantly clear the fake brain and "top of the head" are much too high to look even remotely realistic, rising at least several inches too high. See more »


Dr. Gregory House: Because that would let Cameron in on the fact that I never intended to do it.
Dr. Chris Taub: This is going to be convoluted, isn't it?
Dr. Gregory House: Figured I'd ask her for something really crazy, so she'd shoot me down and get the whole I-can-control-House thing out of her perky little system. So the next time I went back and ask for something marginally crazy, she would see marginally reasonable and she'd say "yes." So yeah, slightly convulted.
Dr. Chris Taub: We're screwed.

Needful things
29 January 2009 | by ctomvelu-1See all my reviews

A special ed teacher collapses in her classroom, and the team wants House to stay away from her as much as possible, as she is perpetually cheery and unruffled by events. Cuddy continues to have problems with the baby. Foreman finds himself in a sticky situation regarding 13's course of treatment. Cameron is put in charge in Cuddy's absence, and House tries without much luck to make Casmeron's life miserable. A lot going on, although the Foreman-13 romance is wearing thin and the Cuddy-baby deal is just plain tiresome. The episode is too soap opera-y for its own good. I did get a kick out of the teacher, however. House saves her, but wait until you see the look on his face at the end. He really cannot stand nice people.
