  • Another Great Installment of House.

    By XooKey, Jul 01, 2009

  • House is unconvincingly called to re-examine his faith by an unattractive priest. 13 & Foreman unconvincingly tussle over House's dictum that one of them must split or quit. Everyone ends up with their jobs back.

    • Daniel: You want to talk hypocrisy, what about you? You act like you don't care about anyone, but here you are, saving lives. House: Solving puzzles. Saving lives is just collateral damage. Daniel: Yeah, nice try. I don't think you're looking for somebody to prove you right. I think you're looking for somebody to prove you wrong, to give you hope. You want to believe, don't you?

    • House: I detect a stink of leftover faith.

    • Thirteen: We are adults. We can handle this. You just have to give us a chance. House: No you are not. No you can't. And no, I don't.

    • Dr. Cuddy: Are you doing anything Friday? House: Taking a lovely young lady to the Philharmonic. Dr. Cuddy: Is that your way of saying you're having sex with a hooker? House: Two. Can't create a harmonic with just one.

    • House: (to Wilson) You're a wuss. Part wimp, part puss.

    Trivia (1)

    • When Wilson confronts House in his office about Cuddy's hypocrisy, just prior to his Eureka moment (approx. 37mn into the episode), Hugh Laurie holds his watch so that the time is clearly visible. In between sentences, the watch jumps from '10:34' to '1:12'.

    Allusions (1)

    • House: To put it in terms you might better understand: if you don't split, you must quit. Referencing an iconic line from attorney Johnny Cochran's closing argument in O.J. Simpson's murder trial related to the bloody glove found at the crime scene, "If it doesn't fit, you must acquit."

      I'm seriously wondering why I've been drinking for the feels when apparently according to about 20 episodes so far alcohol gives hallucinations. If I wanted those I would go back to acid.
