    Trivia (5)

    • The song that Yonasan sings to his wife, "Eyshes Chayil," is the last 22 verses of the Book of Proverbs, which praise the "Woman of Valor." It is traditionally sung on Friday night before the Sabbath evening meal.

    • Roz refers to her husband as "Yonatan," which is the modern Israeli pronunciation of the name ("Jonathan" is the English equivalent). In the chassidic community of which she was a member, the name would have been pronounced according to the traditional Ashkenazic pronunciation, "Yonasan" ("s" instead of "t").

    • Trivia: Kutner describes Amber as having "legs that go all the way up to Canada." When House surprises Amber at her apartment, she is wearing a sweatshirt that is emblazoned with "McGill". The Faculty of Medicine at Montreal's McGill University is one of Canada's oldest and most renowned medical schools. The sweatshirt, however, belongs to Wilson. We see him wearing it in Season 2's episode 19: "House Vs. God" at House's poker game.

    • Roz describes herself as Baal tshuva, which means (someone male) who has returned (to religion). Since she's a female she should have said Baalat tshuva.

    • Trivia: The bourdeaux embroidered cover for the challa bread says: For Shabbat and holiday[s]. (Hebrew: Le shabat ve'yom tov)

    Allusions (4)

    • Kuttner: (to Taub) You can become a Da'Har Master. Does that require further explanation? Mentioning Da'Har Master is an allusion to the show Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. The Da'Har Master is a Klingon warrior who has reached the highest level attainable in the practice of Mok'bara. Examples include Kor, Koloth and Kang who appear in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine in the episode "Blood Oath."

    • House: You cry over Dark Victory. This is reference to a 1939 movie Dark Victory. This a story about the last days of a woman with cancer, starring Bette Davis

    • Dr. Chase: You want more time? Joshua got God to make the sun stand still. Chase is referring to the battle between Joshua and five Amorite kings describes in Joshua 10:10-27. The Israelites were winning the fight, and Joshua asked God (Joshua 10:12) to stop the setting of the sun so that they can finish the battle. The sun stayed in the sky for 24 hours (10:13) and the Israelites won.

    • House: How's our mental Yentl? Referencing the 1983 movie starring Barbra Streisand in the title role as a Polish woman who disguises herself as a man to study the Talmud. Based in turn on the story Yentl, the Yeshiva Boy by Isaac Bashevis Singer.
