  • Euforia mostra o ápice da série na temporada.

    9.7
    Este foi o primeiro episódio duplo de House, Euforia mostra o ápice da série na temporada. Durante a metade da temporada para cá, podemos perceber a série tentando fugir um pouco de sua fórmula clássica, o que também rendeu episódios espetaculares, na verdade uma seqüência deles.



    Nunca comentei aqui sobre as performances dos atores, uma porque se fosse comentar sobre a performance de Hugh Laurie, teria que fazê-lo em todos os episódios, outra é que nenhum outro ator teve uma performance fora do normal, que chamasse a atenção (pelo menos nos episódios que eu resenhei). Falei isso só para destacar neste episódio a fantástica interpretação de Omar Epps (Dr. Foreman). Todo o processo dele portar a doença, o desenvolvimento dos sintomas e nas partes onde via o que conseqüentemente acontecerá com ele, vendo a degradação do policial pela doença. Não seria surpresa nenhuma se ele tivesse sido indicado ao Emmy pelas performances nestes dois episódios.



    Foi outra bela abertura e novamente lembrou as séries policiais. Um policial perseguindo um fugitivo com um carro e depois a pé. O policial pede para o bandido colocar as mãos na cabeça, ai ele começa a rir descontroladamente e a fazer piadas bizarras. Num momento de distração o bandido saca sua arma e atira no policial. Um efeito especial bem legal na hora do tiro, a bala ao atingi-lo lança três estilhaços dela: uma ao lado de seu olho esquerdo, outra em sua bochecha esquerda e a última em seu pescoço no mesmo lado. Agora a parte realmente estranha: mesmo ferido ele continuou rindo.



    O pai de Foreman está orgulhoso de o filho ter saído no jornal (pelo artigo), mas como ele próprio diz, ele não está orgulhoso dele, ele está orgulhoso de Jesus. O clima entre o Foreman e a Cameron não foi esquecido e estará presente no episódio.



    Então realmente começa o diagnóstico. House apresenta o caso: policial com senso de humor. A euforia não foi causada pelos fragmentos. House então manda Chase e Cameron fazerem exames no paciente, enquanto Foreman (como sempre) faz a busca na casa do paciente. House vai até a delegacia.



    House se aproveita da situação para resolver alguns problemas que tem com multas. Ele sabe se aproveitar de sua deficiência quando quer. E quando a parceira do policial o olha meio que não querendo o ajudar com as multas ele fala:



    Após a visita House diz, ele tem a doença dos legionários, devido a má conservação do ar-condicionado da delegacia. Foreman vai à casa do policial, um verdadeiro chiqueiro. Foreman sai pegando amostra de tudo. Ele descobre que no fundo da casa ele mantém uma plantação de maconha, tudo muito bem montado com sistema de irrigação e tudo. Os pombos não chamam a atenção no momento.



    Todo o processo do Foreman foi devidamente descartado com a descoberta de House. Mas é ai que o segundo estágio da doença se manifesta: a cegueira. Voltaram a estaca zero. House então não vê outra solução a não ser fazerem uma ressonância magnética com contraste, mas devido aos fragmentos da bala em seu cérebro, todos ficam contra (porque os fragmentos seriam atraídos pelo campo magnético e destruiriam o seu cérebro).



    Os pupilos de House resolvem fazer uma angiografia, prontamente desencorajados por House, que pede para eles o encontrarem no necrotério. É durante este procedimento que Cameron desconfia das ações de Foreman com o paciente. Ao chegar no necrotério e ver o House procurando entre os cadáveres, Chase pergunta o que ele está procurando, então leva um resposta bem engraçada do House:moreless

    I thought that the episode was great from beginning to end and that this was an excellant way to finish up the two part series. What the aftermath of Foremans condition is going to be is still uncertain, but the end of the episode left me with a lot of unansered questions and an uncertainty about the future of Foreman as one of the members of Houses team. I loved the twist at the end, always leaving open doors and new mysteries is something any television show should strive for and I thought this episode was one of the bets written pieces for House. I didn't think the episode was as comical as the show usually is, but House went to the clinic for a funny scene or two and the scenes with Cuddy are always funny. All in all this might be one of the best House episodes to date, wonderfully written from beginning to end.moreless
  • Outrageous, Amazing, Emotional

    10
    This was one of the best episodes of House that I have seen. It's the first time that it has actually made me well up. The emotion between Cameron and Foreman as she was about to put him under was brilliant. The way Cameron shouted at Cuddy. Foremans dad making an appearance and showing the way that his family are and finding out about his mum.



    I feel that this episode and the previous had everything that a good episode requires, Emotion, Adventure, Excitment, Sadness, Fear and Happiness. House has quickly become my favourite program and episodes like this are the exact reason for that!!moreless
  • Part 2 what happens to Foreman

    9.9
    This was just so much better than the first part. I loved how Cuddy kept sticking to protocol. It was so annoying yet so amusing all at the same time. I loved all of the scenes with Cuddy in this episode.



    I loved House in the clinic. Who would think that the little kid was doing what she was? House was so nice when he was talking to her too it was kind of scary to see House acting so nice. Then Cuddy coming and yelling at him to leave the clinic was even scarier! Cuddy is always yelling at him for not doing his job in the clinic!



    I loved House trying to use Foreman's dad to manipulate Cuddy. It was classic House. I loved how Foreman's dad acted and reacted to his son's condition. He was so religious and he believed that his son shouldn't be afraid of death. I liked the angle with House and Mr. Foreman it was interesting.



    I loved that Foreman chose Cameron to be his medical proxy. I loved how House didn't want to believe that Cameron was in charge and then Cameron vs. Cuddy. I loved how Cameron got all angry at Cuddy since they needed to cut into Foreman's head because Cuddy wouldn't let them cut into Joe's head.



    This was such an amazing episode I loved it!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Instead of doing a white matter brain biopsy, why didn't House just biopsy the brain tissue that was associated with causing the euphoria? If the disease had attacked that part of the brain then there might still be remnants of it there.

    • Foreman is diagnosed with primary amebic meningoencephalitis. This disease is fatal in over 95% of cases and the few survivors all suffered severe and irreversible brain damage. As established in dialogue, Foreman's brain damage is from the biopsy and otherwise he's fine.

  • QUOTES (27)

    • Dr. Cuddy: If House tries to interfere, let me know and I will take care of it.
      Dr. Cameron: Yeah. You're a hero. If it wasn't for you, we'd be cutting into a dead guy's head instead of Foreman's.

    • House: Stop asking me questions based on the premise that I'm wrong!

    • Dr. Foreman: I can't breathe, I'm dizzy, and I can barely hear anything over the sounds of my lungs cracking.
      Dr. Cameron: That's the legionella.
      Dr. Foreman: Wow. Did you figure that out from the symptoms, or from the vial of it tossed into my room?

    • House: He (Guard from the CDC) hasn't gotten up to pee in hours. He's due.
      Dr. Wilson: You haven't sprinkled granules on his donut? His bowels would open up like the red sea.
      House: He wouldn't eat the donut.
      Wilson: Have you seriously been down here for hours?
      House: No. I had to pee a couple times.
      Dr. Wilson: You've gotta stop blaming Cuddy for this.
      House: Given that it is her fault, it's appropriate.
      Dr. Wilson: That part is her fault. The part where somebody wasted his time in a basement plotting the overthrow of a government agency, that one's on you.

    • House: Forget it. You just biopsied a mattress.

    • Dr. Cuddy: (to House) Go to your office. Play with your ball. Write on your white board. Insult your team. Do whatever it is that you do to figure things out.

    • Dr. Cuddy: One afternoon, and you're on pace to set the record for most patients seen in a month!
      House: You're upset that I'm doing clinic hours? Wow, that is so like rain on your wedding day.

    • Dr. Cameron: I'm trying to be professional, here. There's no need to be nasty.
      Dr. Foreman: I'm in pain!
      Dr. Cameron: So is House.
      Dr. Foreman: And he's a delight!

    • Dr. Cuddy: I know I've had no choice.
      Dr. Foreman: Of course you had a choice!
      Dr. Cuddy: Regulations are clear.
      Dr. Foreman: And the punishment for violating those regulations? Is it death? Hmm? Because frankly, I'm okay if you get a fine, a suspension. Hell, you can spend a couple of years in jail if it saves my life!

    • (House comes in with Foreman's father)
      Cuddy: What is this?
      House: He's not a what, he's a who. They even have the right to vote now.

    • Dr. Foreman: I'd rather be disabled than dead.
      House: Sure, I make it look oh so sexy. It's actually not as glamorous as you might think.

    • House: First symptom is euphoria.
      Dr. Wilson: How do you know if a rat's euphoric?
      House: He doesn't usually climb on his water bottle like that, does he?

    • House: Cameron, what type of illnesses affect humans but not rats?
      Dr. Cameron: Why are you asking me that?
      House: Because I'm sure that you spent the first twelve years of your life dreaming of being a vet.

    • House: In actuality, all your little girl is doing...is saying "Yoo hoo to the who-who."
      Claire: She's what?
      House: "Marching the penguin." (Claire looks blank) "Ya-yaing the Sisterhood." "Finding Nemo." (Grace giggles) Liked that one.
      Claire: Are you saying that my daughter (covers her daughter's ears) is masturbating?
      House: I was trying to be discreet--there's a child in the room!

    • House: As soon as (Steve the Rat) gets sick, I do an autopsy.
      Dr. Wilson: As soon as he's dead.
      House: Right after he gets sick, there's a good chance he'll get hit in the head with a...cane-shaped object.

    • Dr. Cameron: If it was toxic mold, I'd be sick.
      House: How do we know you're not sick?
      Dr. Cameron: Do I seem happy to you?
      House: Never.

    • Dr. Cuddy: A thin slice of Joe's brain could also cause a public health crisis.
      House: It's not a good idea to scream "Fire" every time someone lights a match.

    • Dr. Foreman: I'm okay?
      House: Your breath stinks and you're peeing into a bag. What are our names?
      Dr. Foreman: You did the biopsy? Thank you.
      House: Names.
      Dr. Foreman: Cameron, my dad, and the manipulative bastard.
      House: You remembered.

    • House: I screwed up.
      Dr. Cameron: How can you not capture a blind bird?
      House: That's not what I meant. I screwed up the first time through this place.

    • Dr. Wilson: Why weren't you with Foreman?
      House: I hang out in the basement, you rag on me. I stay in my office, you rag on me. Honky just can't buy a break.

    • House: That was great!
      Dr. Cameron: It was rude and unnecessary.
      House: Yeah!

    • House: Pain makes us make bad decisions, fear of pain is almost as big a motivator.

    • Rodney: My son says you're a manipulative bastard.
      House: It's a pet name. I call him "Dr. Bling."

    • Dr. Cameron: Foreman's black.
      House: What? How long have you been sitting on this information?

    • House: Philosophical question – how do you want to die?
      Dr. Foreman: Old age.

    • Rose: You're a goof.
      House: Takes one to know one, loser. Wait, that means I'm a loser – scratch that.

    • Dr. Wilson: You're accessing a webcam?
      House: Cuddy's shower. Are you a fan of the Brazilian?

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • House: You're upset that I'm doing clinic hours? Wow, that is so like rain on your wedding day.
      "Rain on your wedding day" is a line out of Alanis Morrissette's song, Ironic.

    • House: Ooh, Level Three. You should call Jack Bauer.
      This quote alludes to 24, a drama to which House has been compared. Kiefer Sutherland plays Jack Bauer an anti-terrorist agent who every season has the worst day of his life.
