  • A nosey House, a bitter Tritter, and a forbidden love....

    Nothing tickles Dr. Gregory House quite like an interesting medical case, but what could possibly tickle him more? "Fools For Love" has the answer: Wilson's love life. House almost cannot focus on the case at hand - that sees a black woman with an odd illness and her white husband who starts getting similarly sick - because of his nosey procedure in figuring out if Wilson is lying about not being in a relationship with a nurse named Wendy. If that was not enough to distract House from the unhappy sick couple in his care, a man named Tritter comes into the picture and makes House miserable.

    "Fools For Love" is a well written, well acted, funny, shocking, and touching episode of House M.D. The case is one of the very best ever featured in the show and seeing House and Wilson go at it is always funny, and it is especially funny in this episode. You also have themes of love and decency that throw hands with House's rudeness and cynicism - you can't go wrong with "Fools For Love."

    House M.D. rarely gets better than this.
