  • God I dislike that Nadia character

    She must be up there with one of the most annoying.

    Just at the start where she is just keep going on and on about the woman at the diner hadn't been there before. Someone with a brain would have STOPPED before it got that far. And the way she treated her sister was just despicable. Yeah, we don't really know how she is beside what Nadia.

    Everything about that character makes me almost angry.

    Same with the Detective. Michael Tritter from season 2 if I remember right. He almost ruin that season.moreless
  • 2/14

    This episode was not as emotional as last week's, it was actually a very simple premise, but it worked. This took viewers back to the days when House was a good show, a fun show, and not so overly dramatic. The scenes with House and Wilson, the cat, it just worked here tonight. These two have some of the best chemistry in the world, yet they have been focusing on this relationship less in less as the show has progressed which has me scratching my head.

    Good episode here tonight. Simple case, simple solution, but an entertaining hour of TV.moreless
  • More house and wilson. . .

    I'm not sure how much longer this show can run at a high standard. Each new episode seems to be treading old ground, wether it be cases that are not a million miles away from older episodes or just the general house/wilson relationship. I enjoy both House and Wilson as characters but I really don't think I can stay interested in the dynamic of the pair for much longer as it stands. House messes with wilson . . we get it. It would be nice if they turn that on its head and have Wilson be the antonist of the two for a season. Having said that, I did enjoy the Taub and Foreman story this week. I read a few people slamming taub and saying he should be removed, but I always find him to be one of the better members of the house team. And his recent marriage issues have kept me watching house when the main story arc has not had me gripped. All in all, not my favourite house episode. I did enjoy parts of it though and look forward to seeing where they take the Taub and Foreman story.moreless
  • A good episode.

    I have mixed feelings about this episode.

    I love that we got to see some of Wilson and his attempts to cope with lonliness, his character deserved another shimmer of angty-realism, considering he hadn't seen much of it for a while.

    That being said, they need to get Masters character right or take her off the show. I'm sorry, that seems extreme, but with every new character, no matter how much we'd all love to be attached to the one proceeding them, there has at least been some consistancy. Masters starting the fight between sisters was completely out of character for her, considering how strongly she feels about truth and kindness being the best medicine. I don't know, that was very frustrating because things like this keep me from liking her character.

    I was also sort of bored with the Taub/Foreman stuff going on, I mean I appreciated us seeing more of them, and getting a little more of the growth the writers have been playing around with for a while, but with all due respect, I wanted more medical drama. I didn't need this light hearted, lets be brotherly, stuff. I was like, let me see the case, lets see some Wilson and House GOLD. Not this... I don't know, that's my rant.moreless
  • I love episodes which highlight the friendship between House and Wilson.

    I have just begun to watch this show again (have caught the last three episodes), and this one reminded me of how great Wilson is. What I cannot understand is why anyone fortunate enough to become his wife would let him go. But I guess we see the "surface"; his wives get the whole picture. I love the snappy dialogue that he always has with House; you have to listen carefully, not only to the words, but the subtle nuance behind them. I'm glad he once again has a pet, although I foresee a very sad episode in the future, where the cat passes away. The medical mystery was actually pretty boring - and Taub and Foreman have the worse chemistry ever.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • House: Who's Sarah? Wilson's friend.
      Dr. Cuddy: My computer crashed. Lost my database of his acquaintances.
      House: Or you're both lying to me.
      Dr. Cuddy: I know nothing about Wilson having a friend named Sarah. Satisfied?
      House: Noooooo.

    • House: Picture a door. Unlocked with the key of the mind. Two medical cases, both more fascinating than the last.
      Masters: That actually makes no logical sense.
      House: This is not a door to logical sense. Also, shut up.

    • Masters: What about a tutor?
      Taub: I don't need a tutor.
      House: Tutor it is. Choose your poison. Chase, if you prefer pounding Aussie beers and commiserating over the suckiness of divorce. Masters, if you want nervous energy, flash cards, and obnoxious pieces of arcane trivia. Foreman, if you need to be berated by a humorless hard-ass.
      Taub: Foreman.
      House: Interesting. You must be more worried than you look.

    • Taub: I'm totally fine. I aced my first pathology boards.
      Dr. Foreman: Medicine's come a long way in the last hundred years.

    • Dr. Wilson: Sarah would have been destroyed at the shelter.
      House: Aww, who wouldn't want a cat that croaks if you're not at home twice a day to shoot it up?

    • House: Masters, when you finally blossom into a woman, would you ever sleep with a man who had a cat?
      Masters: Sure.
      House: Wrong, the answer is no. Slut.

    • Dr. Foreman: You're nothing but excuses and distractions.
      Taub: Well, it's a nice match with your condescension and superiority.

    • Dr. Foreman: Why are you giving me these?
      House: Because, while they're all running all these tests, you will be submitting the insurance forms.
      Dr. Foreman: There's an entire department for that.
      House: Exactly. The Foreman Department. Of which you are the foreman, Foreman.

    • House: Picture a door. Unlocked with the key of the mind. Two medical cases, both more fascinating than the last.
      Referencing the introduction of The Twilight Zone, an American television anthology series created by Rod Serling in 1959. Although several monologues were used, this one is very similar to, "You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension - a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into the Twilight Zone!"

    • Dr. Wilson: Release the Kraken.
      Referencing the 1981 movie Clash of the Titans (1981) and its 2010 remake. In both of them, a Greek character dramatically declares "Release the Kraken!" In the original, Caiobos states it, while in the remake, it is Zeus that gives the command. The Kraken is a huge humanoid sea monster, which bears little resemblance to the traditional Norwegian creature of the same name, which is typically described as a squid-like monster.

    • House: Like having your own button on Lost.
      Referencing the TV series Lost. On its second season, the crash survivors found a computer at the Swan station, and someone had to enter the Numbers and push the button every 108 minutes. It is eventually revealed that not pushing the button is a very bad thing.

    • Dr. Foreman: Kevin Spacey is Keyser Soze.
      Referencing the 1995 movie The Usual Suspects, which tells the tale via flashback of a massacre at a ship docked in Los Angeles. Spacey plays "Verbal" Kint, who is testifying in return for immunity. The secretive mastermind of the operation is "Keyser Soze," and it is eventually revealed that Kint is in fact Keyser Soze. Executive producer Bryan Singer directed that movie.

    • House: This is like the Mod Squad: nothing can stop them.
      Referencing the 1968 TV series starring Michael Cole, Clarence Williams III, and Peggy Lipton as three kids in trouble with the law, who get recruited by Captain Greer (Tige Andrews) to infiltrate the counter-culture and use their knowledge and appearance to get into groups that regular officers couldn't. Omar Epps (Foreman) played Linc in the feature film based off of the series.

    • House: So, I want to hear all the dirty, dairy-specific details of your night with Java the Slut. Referencing Star Wars and the Hutt mobster, Jabba Desilijic Tiure, aka Jabba the Hutt. Jabba is a massive slug-like creature who maintains a court of bounty hunters, slaves, and sycophants who cater to his every whim. He is killed by Princess Leia in Return of the Jedi (1983).
