    This episode more than any other convinces me that Chase fathered Cameron's baby. The bonding that happened between House and a dying patient was interesting. The game of truth or dare between Wilson and 13 was weird, but not as weird as Foreman and Taub getting high while comparing personal files.



    I found Cameron giving up and walking away from the Hospital to be hard to watch. She has always been the strong one, trying to save House, Foreman, and Chase. But after 7 season she finally gives up and decides that they aren't worth saving. I guess people change, and Cameron finally grew out of her Florence Nightingale syndrome.moreless
  • The worst house episode ever.

    I never write reviews but this episode got me so upset. Cameron's replacement was worse than usual and the whole Forman getting high was just stupid. I know House to be a really good show. Th writers must think we will accept anything. I know TV is free and we can just change the channel. Last night I really wanted to. I kept watched because I thought that somehow House would carry the show to greatness as he always does. Istead we got to see the really lame Cuddy be the hero. In 9 to 5 she was great but one Cuddy episode is enough.moreless

    I will support this episode because Hugh Laurie directed it, but other than that, it was...odd. There was no medical case. All it was was Foreman & Taub getting high (horrible acting), Wilson & Thirteen playing truth or dare (Wilson used the word "breasts" & unnecessary Jewish background music) and House being non-confrontational and egotistical as always. And oh yeah, Chase and Cameron getting it on (random much?) It was a strange episode, not like anything I've seen on this show. Hugh did a fine job directing, but it felt like a waste of time. I'm wondering when this show is going to end.moreless
  • Episodes for everyone..

    So, the hospital goes into lockdown and everyone is where they are and they cannot get out. So we have few "mini-episodes" in this episode, showing what they are doing turning those hours.



    To be honest.. none of those mini episodes were superbly striking. House's one had very deep feeling and that colorschema on that scene even made the depression even intenser. But that mini-episode served it point but there were things I am not sure..



    Chase and Cameron's part of the story wasn't (in some moments) not bad either. I mean.. there were really powerful moments like when Cameron yelled she did not know.. But again, the ending somehow felt weird...



    And I am not even start telling about Wilson vs 13 or Foremand and Taub..moreless

    My first House review ever.. What an episode! Bravo,Hugh! Maybe not a "great" one as we are used to watch! But surely a unique one!

    There were lots of funny parts including Taub and Foreman encounter at the archive department as well as 13 and Willson "game".

    But we watched also some nostalgic and sad scenes: Chase and ex-wife discussion and ...outcome. Same goes also for House and his full of meaning lines between him and the dying patient.. And they managed among all these to tell a story with enough suspence involving the Lockdown..So, for all these, Thank you, Mr. House :-)moreless

  • QUOTES (7)

    • House: No cards, no flowers, not even a phone call. Let me guess, lighthouse keeper?
      Nash: I was a classics professor at Princeton for 26 years. Mostly research.
      House: So, your closest colleagues died 2,000 years ago, that must be it. Not that you have no friends because, say, you're a miserable bastard.

    • Nash: You're Dr. House, aren't you?
      House: Oh, God, don't tell me we used to date.

    • Thirteen: Truth.
      Dr. Wilson: All right. Have you ever had a threesome?
      Thirteen: No.
      Dr. Wilson: You haven't?
      Thirteen: Wait, just--just because I'm bisexual?
      Dr. Wilson: Well, yeah.
      Thirteen: Do you understand what bisexual mean? It doesn't mean you have sex with two people at once.

      Dr. Foreman: I wasn't ready.
      Taub: What were you gonna do? Flex your goatee muscles?

    • House: We're better off alone. We suffer alone, we die alone. Doesn't matter if you're a model husband or father of the year. Tomorrow will be the same for you.
      Nash: But yesterday would have been different.

    • Dr. Wilson: That woman, the woman I'm not involved with, her name is Sam Carr. But in 1990 and 1991, it was Sam Wilson.
