When House splits his stitches and collapses to the floor outside the patient's hospital room, a red fake blood bag falls out on the floor to his side just before the scene fades.
There are several events that contradict previous events from prior episode and even the beginning of the episode, as far as characters knowing things only House could know, characters saying different things then they said originally, etc. Given the nature of most of the episode, these can be accounted for by the fact that...well, House at least knows them.
House's name tag establishes his birth-month is in June. But in "The Socratic Method," his birthday was much later in the year when Cameron wished him a happy birthday.
Near the end, House claims that, unusually, none of the staff ever challenged his epiphanies. But at the 11:40 mark, House has the epiphany of trying a lumbar puncture and Foreman challenges it, saying there's too much pressure. Chase argues House's case, House backs it, and Foreman accepts, but Foreman typically protests and then caves anyway. This makes House's later statement incorrect.
Trivia: In this episode, watching the restaurant scene, we can see that both Cuddy and Wilson are left-handed.
It's clear at several points (primarily due to the stiffness of the neck) that the baby is a prop doll.
Instead of doing a white matter brain biopsy, why didn't House just biopsy the brain tissue that was associated with causing the euphoria? If the disease had attacked that part of the brain then there might still be remnants of it there.
Foreman is diagnosed with primary amebic meningoencephalitis. This disease is fatal in over 95% of cases and the few survivors all suffered severe and irreversible brain damage. As established in dialogue, Foreman's brain damage is from the biopsy and otherwise he's fine.
At the end of the episode, Foreman finally gives up doing CPR on police officer Joe. When the camera temporarily shows House walking away, Foreman can be seen doing CPR in the window reflection again, but when the camera returns to showing Foreman directly, he is back to doing nothing.
When the policeman was shot, the bullet bounced off and hit him near the head. But there were no signs of bruises or scab marks on the area where it bounced.
House walks into the closed cafeteria to get coffee, turns on the espresso machine and gets himself a cup of coffee. It would take considerably longer for the machine to actually work after being turned off.
The first shot of House's potential straight flush had the deuce, four, six and eight of clubs showing. No hole card can complete the straight flush.
In a subsequent shot, the eight has become the five of clubs.
Trivia: The tune that House plays on his piano partway through the episode is What a Friend We Have in Jesus.
When talking to Foreman, House was grinding his pills to add to his reuben. House also made fine particles of his histamines to snort up his nose because the medicine would travel faster into the person's systems compared to swallowing the pills. But as a doctor, House should know the breaking the pills apart makes them ineffective and not recommended - to get the benefit of the medicine, one must swallow the pill whole.
In this episode, Foreman claims that he is not Cameron's friend and they are nothing but colleagues. However, in the episode "Love Hurts" from the first season, Foreman shows an interest in Cameron's well-being regarding her date, and says the words, "Cameron's a friend."
Bubonic plague is not contagious. It requires the person to have been bitten by an infected flea. The human form, pneumonic plague, which affects the lungs, is highly contagious and will spread from person to person through aspiration, coughs, sneezes. Hannah had the bubonic form.
After Ian's cardiac arrest, when House is doing the heart biopsy, House asks for a vacutainer. Vacutainers are useless in biopsies.
In the scene where Ian goes into cardiac arrest, on the eighth and last defibrillation before his heartbeat is restored, he lifts and moves his hands.
When Ian goes into cardiac arrest, his hands positions switch from "at his side" to crossed in different shots.
Trivia: For this one episode, House has a new cane, called an "Alpaca Floral."
