Quotes

Dr. Gregory House: [about Charlotte's treatment] Start her on IV fluids and acyclovir.
Thirteen: Can't. She's demanding to be released so she can get home to her husband.
Dr. Gregory House: How sweet. They can die together instead of separately, 40 years apart.
Thirteen: She claims he got stronger as soon as she stopped breathing.
Dr. Chris Taub: The mind can heal the body. Seeing his wife in distress might have actually slowed down his death.
Dr. Gregory House: Or he just had an adrenaline surge when he saw his chance to hit the singles market.

Probably the best episode ever!
7 April 2009 | by vezzo53See all my reviews

This was one of, if not THE, best episode of House I have ever seen! The actors showed so much emotion and were so great in their roles. They finally show House showing true sympathy, grief, and remorse which is rarely ever seen, but of course he has to have his usual insult rant at some point during the episode. Omar Epps (Foreman), Peter Jacobson (Taub), and Olivia Wilde (13) were extremely good at showing the power the situation had and the toll it took on each one of them and their acting was incredible. Even Jesse Spencer (Chase) and Jennifer Morrison (Cameron) were brought into the episode showing true emotion and remorse. The most surprising character in my mind was Wilson because he was effected greatly by the tragedy and gets so emotional and you see a side of him you don't normally see.

Overall, a fantastic episode. The emotion was great behind the tragedy, and the emotion behind the patients ran just as high; and even through the events, the patients still remained a relevant part of the story and really brought out the true emotions of Taub.

The writers got it right with this episode, and the actors portrayed it so well. An intense episode that I would like to see more of, that emotion that was shown made this episode great!
