I like the fact that we all see the show from different perspectives, which makes for some truly intersting discussions/debates. No one's opinions should be interpreted as being the absolute truth. They are opinions and nothing more.
I think what made watching House and Stacy fun is that they could read each other so well that it was like watching an old married couple, especially when they argued. My favorite House/Stacy moments were when they were stuck at the airport in the episode, Failure to Communicate. House was so good at reading ailments of some of the people in the airport that Stacy was getting incomfortable sitting next to House because she knew it would only be a matter of time before he figured out why she wasn't wearing her cross. I think that House knew the reason but he wanted to hear it from Stacy.
I feel that House is most open and caring with people he trusts and is close to-Cuddy, Stacy, and Wilson. House said in House vs. God, "Trust must be earned." I really don't see the ducklings reaching the level of truly gaining House's trust-especially Cameron. Why should House trust her? This is the woman who pimped a date off him just to find out how he truly feels about her, assumes the worst because House had a plane ticket to Boston, and then pimps a kiss from him to take his blood. Cameron can be manipuative just like House but when House manipulates someone he's intentions are good. Take the episode, Need To Know, when House manipulated Cameron in order to get a DNA swab. House was looking out for the hospital and the patients if Cameron was HIV positive. If House didn't manipulate Cameron the way he did, I doubt whether she would have taken an HIV test.
I forgot that it was Lines in the Sand where House said that Cameron was age appropriate. Let's not forget in the episode, Acceptance House told the death row inmate that he was sharing the liquor with that he could have hit on Cameron but he didn't. I think that House was once again being honest with his feelings about Cameron eventhough he was drunk. Hugh has said in articles regarding House/Cameron that Cameron is too old for him but if you are attacted to someone there isn't much you can do."
I think that House as some feelings for Cameron but he will always feel that the reason she wants to be with him is because he needs to be fixed. Season 4 will tell us more about what the writers plan for the future of House and Cameron. Personally, all I see are the writers getting House to open up more to Cameron, trusting medical opinions more, and getting her to confront some of the issues that are keeping her from becoming a better doctor.
