Quotes

Thirteen: [to Lou] I'm sorry. I shouldn't have gotten angry at you. Your choices are your choices.
Lou: You're not like me. Maybe you have wings.

Wilson
22 September 2008 | by ctomvelu-1See all my reviews

Wilson announces his resignation and House spends the rest of the episode calling him an idiot. Cuddy plays therapist and makes House and Wilson sit in her office to hash things out. It doesn't work, of course. There's the usual sick patient of the week, but it doesn't hold a candle to the drama of Wilson's imminent departure. Lots of references to the departed Amber, maybe a few too many. Plus Amber's departure at the end of last season was overblown melodrama that is best forgotten. Not a particularly strong episode, all things considered. Methinks House has run its course. The next few weeks will tell.
