Trivia

When House is paying off patients to leave the clinic, he catches an elderly man with a nice hat who has coughed up blood on his handkerchief. It is monogrammed D.S. - David Shore wrote the episode. See more »

Goofs

In the scene where Eve and House are in the park, a brief shot shows the IV line in Eve's hand, which is inserted the wrong way round. It is pointing towards her arm, meaning the needle was inserted towards her fingers, but it should be the reverse. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Allison Cameron: [Cameron and Foreman are giving House advice] You need to get her to talk about what happened.
Dr. Eric Foreman: No, he doesn't.
Dr. Allison Cameron: Pretending it didn't happen won't...
Dr. Eric Foreman: Wrong! Pretending this didn't happen is the best thing she could possibly do.
Dr. Allison Cameron: She's gotta make this real.
Dr. Eric Foreman: You know what we should be trying to make real, the process? The few decent moments in our lives, not the crap.
Dr. Allison Cameron: Maybe you're right, except that there's no way that she can pretend this didn't happen so she has no choice but to process it.

House faces his own demons through the events surrounding a patient.
30 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Faced with the threat of jail, House succumbs to Dr. Cuddy's demands that he spend his days pulling Clinic duty where House then meets a young woman who will only reveal her problems to him. When the woman won't go away, House has no choice to but open up and face his own past demons and try to understand the world a little better. Meanwhile Cameron debates whether she should interfere with a dying man's will to die in pain.

This was a great episode. It was both deep (in a shallow, easy-answer Hollywood way) and revealing about House's character. Though some topics may be uncomfortable for people who have been abused.

Also it should be noted that the writer's give simple answers and flawed arguments using circular reasoning to define House's rationale that God is either evil, or does not exist. For some impressionable to such things, you are urged to search elsewhere (outside of a prime-time television writer's expertise).
