  • Another great episode of 'House'- definitely one I'm going to watch again!

    After last week's rather average episode, I'm pleased to see that 'House' has returned to form- it was one of those very fast paced episodes, where it's hard to keep track of exactly what malady the poor woman [Lucy] was suffering from, but it did make sense in the end. I loved the biting sarcasm of the quotes from this episode:
    House: Love the suit, it says 'I'm a
    professional, but I'm still a woman'...
    actually it sort of shouts that last part
    Cuddy: Yeah, and your big cane is real
    subtle too...
    And House does so have a heart- look at how he didn't turn Lucy in for calling Social Services, but let the boy think that he had been responsible. It's also touching the way he continued reading to Lucy while her son wasn't there to keep her company...
    What I didn't quite get, though, was Cuddy entering the men's room- persistent!
