  • A turning point...

    7.9
    I actually found myself enjoying this episode. A lot of the usual stuff happened (by usual I mean House and Wilson pranking each other), but to me the essential part of this episode was the presence of Piper Perabo. I felt a cool chemestry between her and House. I hope to see some more of her, it would be good for the show to get House a love interest outside of the Cuddy/Cameron duo. Not that I wouldn't eventually like to see House with Cuddy, but that silly Wilson/Cuddy/House love triangle is getting old. I love House, but I really hope to see some development, which i believe Piper Perabo's character could bring to the show.moreless
  • Cracking episode as we deal with Foreman's bombshell.

    10
    This was a much better all-round episode than the previous couple, as a teenage starts coughing blood whilst doing karate.



    The patient was quite interesting, especially with "its an infection" joke that was repeated throughout, and I can't remember House annoying parents that much since Paternity early in Season 1! The ending of the case was a good twist to, and it was one of the most plain yet interesting cases they had this Season.



    Meanwhile the team tries to deal with Foreman's departure. I think this was one of the little downpoints of this episode, as Foreman seems to be a little annoying in this episode as people offer their opinions to him. Nevertheless, it gave Chase good screen time as he reads the situation, whilst giving the others a chance to voice their opinions about House. I thought it was touching the way Cuddy said there were worse things to turn into than House.



    I thought the humour in this episode was back on track- the clinic made a welcome return, and Honey made a great impression. I loved how House described himself to her at the end! The funniest part, however, was House and Wilson doping each other! Wilson's reaction was hilarious, especially his talk with Foreman and "I'm on sppppeeeeed"- it really got me laughing!



    Overall, a near perfect episode, and a welcome return to form! Hopefully the final two episodes will be as good!moreless
  • Season 3 Episode 22

    8.0
    I liked this episode! House and Wilson are still pranking each other and that's kind of reassuring. As long as they act witty, their friendship is fine, I guess. Previously I thought only Wilson cared about House, but now it's clear that House cares as well.



    Foreman wants to leave and House's campaign RFF - "Ridicule Foreman Forever" can get started. Meanwhile Cameron and Cuddy want to convince Foreman to stay but they're not that successful. What a pity.



    House and Honey have a great chemistry. Will she make it to grin and bear House?! Anyway, I hope we get to see more about her character. I laughed so much when House said to her "You do realize you just skipped over several deep character flaws that most women would run screaming from?". That was so "House-ish"!



    The best line, though, was definitely Cuddy's. When House informs her that his patient was about to have a heart attack. And Cuddy was all like... Well, that's too bad, because I've got tickets to a stroke on the third floor! LOLmoreless
  • It is oh, so depressing

    9.3
    SPOILER ALERT: Do Not Read Beyond This Point If You Have Not Watched The Show!



    Foreman's resignation becomes official. No one wants to see him go, but he seems determined to leave. As usual, there are many missteps with the college student before the correct diagnosis is reached. House pisses off the parents. And the patient lives! This would be a boring formula if it were not House. Did I mention that everybody lies?



    Did I mention there was a clinic patient? Clinic duty is my favorite part of the show. It never fails to have a hysterical case that breaks up the seriousness of the show. Oh, Honey, did you eat meat today?



    The infantile relationship between House and Wilson is barreling along. Those two are like siblings that need to be put in time out.moreless
  • Speed!

    9.0
    All I have to say is SPEED! What made this episode worth watching is Wilson freaking out after House drugged him. He starts talking really fast and thinks that he might stroke. It was hilarious! The actual case was okay, basically everyone lies and House ends up solving the case. Foreman resigning was inevitable, the writers have been foreshadowing it since season one. People have been resigning all over the place in this show! First Cameron in seaosn one, Wilson shutting down his practice in season three, Cameron trying to resign again in season three, (and Wilson might have tried resigning sometime int there again). So Foreman leaving wasn't that much of a surprise for me. I wonder what Cameron will do at the end of this season for the third time.....moreless

      Dr. Foreman: He said that?
      Dr. Wilson: If I say he said that, would that make a difference?

    • Dr. Wilson: (on speed, about House) You know he wants you, you know he's good, you know he can make you good. I don't know what I'm saying. You don't... I don't... you know what I'm saying and you know I'm right. I gotta go.

    • House: Depression manifests in lots of different ways. Some people can't get out of bed all day. Others have serial relationships and become oncologists.

    • Dr. Wilson: (being questioned by House about taking anti-depressants) It's personal.
      House: How long's it been personal?
      Dr. Wilson: It's personal.
      House: The yawning's recent so either you just started or you changed prescription.
      Dr. Wilson: This is why I take them.
      House: They're anti-depressants, not "anti-annoyance-ants."

    • House: Unless your body can't finish out the fight. Maybe it goes a couple of rounds, then gives up.
      Dr. Chase: Why would it give up?
      House: Maybe its name is Foreman.

    • Dr. Foreman: You're happy about this.
      Dr. Cameron: She's going to die.
      House: That's not my fault, she was gonna die anyway. Now, thanks to me, at least she'll know why.
      Dr. Chase: I'm sure you'll see that gratitude in her eyes when you tell her.

    • House: You're not going to tell him we're a family, and families don't abandon each other?
      Dr. Cuddy: Do you want me to?
      House: No.
      Dr. Cuddy: Would it make any difference?
      Dr. Foreman: No.

    • Dr. Chase: Addie has goosebumps.
      Dr. Foreman: Ooh, no recovering from those babies.

    • House: No one writes tamoxifen like you.
      Dr. Wilson: Well, I use a "G."

    • Dr. Wilson: You don't want to end up like you.
      House: Good point. Can I resign?

    • Kyle: It's about my bowel movements.
      House: What isn't these days?

      Dr. Wilson: You asked for a date while your finger was in her boyfriend.
      House: Got a number.

    • House: What would you think of me hiring a nutritionist instead of a neurologist. They sound almost the same.
      Dr. Wilson: I take it you've met a hot nutritionist.
      House: Don't cheapen this.

    • House: My patient's about to have a heart attack. It's going to be massive.
      Dr. Cuddy: That's too bad, because I've got tickets to a stroke on the third floor.

    • Dr. Wilson: You're pissed at House. I get it. You're symbolicating killing him. "Symbolicating"? What? Symbolic-a-ating. Gosh, that's a hard word.

    • House: I'm accomplished, I'm funny, do I get what I want?

    • House: I'm on anti-depressants 'cause a doctor friend of mine thinks I'm miserable. I don't like them. They make me feel hazy. I eat meat. I like drugs. And I'm not always faithful to the women I date.
      Honey: You don't seem depressed.
      House: You do realize you just skipped over several deep character flaws that most women would run screaming from.
      Honey: You told the truth.
      House: Yeah. I don't always do that either.
      Honey: Well, how miserable can you be saving lives, sleeping around, and doing drugs?
      House: Were you on the debating team in high school?

    • House: Well, whatever floats your poop.

    • House: You can't ignore the blood because it's a minority, can he, Foreman?

    • Dr. Chase: Why's Foreman quitting?
      House: He wants to breed llamas.

    • Dr. Wilson: How did you walk with the cane and two coffees?
      House: Why are you suspicious?
      Dr. Wilson: Cause it's either that or accept the fact that you've done something nice. Then I have to deal with the Horsemen, the Rain of Fire, and the End of Days.

    • Dr. Cuddy: Are you sure?
      Foreman: Yeah
      Dr. Cuddy: Why?
      House: He's afraid of turning into me.
      Dr. Cuddy: Well that's a good enough reason. (Cuddy passes Foreman the resignation papers)

    • Dr. Cameron: What's going on?
      House: Feel free to speculate among yourselves.

    • Dr. Wilson: Cause it's either that or accept the fact that you've done something nice. Then I have to deal with the Horsemen, the Rain of Fire, and the End of Days
      The Four Horsemen (Conquest, War, Famine and Plague & Death) are mentioned in the Bible in the Book of Revelation as one of the signs for the Apocalypse, just like the rain of fire.
