Well, as I was away from home for the long weekend, I could not manually record this week's episode, so I missed this one. I can't understand why my TiVo season pass did not pick this schedule change..

Are there going to be repeats of this episode anytime soon, or are there any download services a la Lost for this show??

That was pretty sad. Incest was "kinda bad", but gay incest was over the line.

I see you're not a big believer in Pain Management.( I don't think he's a heroin addict, anyway.)

You know some states now actually mandate M.D.'s to take Continuing Medical Education courses on that topic due to their archaic knowledge of the subject.

I think you're suffering from post-traumatic Houseian Syndrome.

Not to worry, word is it spontaneously resolves after watching more episodes of House.

Not House, the fifteen year old model was doing diacetylmorphine hydrochloride.

Consider me to be over-protective of the House character thusly misinterpreting your post.

But "diacetylmorphine hydrochloride" .whoa ! that's a mouthful or vein-ful!

Since you know the nuances of the chemical description of street drugs, care to comment on whether or not this 15 year old had ovaries?

It's an easy one !

I started watching House over the summer and have seen most of the episodes, I think. One that I have missed is how House was injured to begin with. So, what happened to him?

That was explained I believe in what I consider to be one of the series' best episodes, "Three Stories".

http://www.fox.com/house/episodes/121.htm

The synopsis doesn't do it justice...do yourself a favor and rent the DVD.

The best episode so far. Probably some of the best writing ever on a TV show.

If I am not mistaken, that episode won an Emmy, but Hugh Laurie lost the Emmy to James Spader of Boston Legal. Great episode that.

I am pretty sure she had balls and tits but then so did House's male patient with the sympathetic pregnancy symptoms. A better question might be did he have ovaries?

Well it aint gonna help you whether or not she had ovaries.

I'm purty sure it was mentioned by at least one M.D. during the episode.

The only reason I ask.......... is that there was a previous discussion here centered upon the notion that she had no ov's.

Her character is a genetic male with undescended testicles. Their placement was around where the ovaries would be, so the doctors thought they were just undersized ovaries. She was either allergic or immune to testosterone and ended up being "pure estrogen" -- hence the perfect female secondary sexual features.

According to the show, all fetuses start out as female. In the ones who are actually male the ovaries drop and convert to testicles. His/hers never full evolved and never dropped so they ended up looking like small ovaries. Unfortunately he/she developed testicular cancer.

ya know as much as I enjoy this show and the one liners each episode delivers, they really need to vary the delivery a bit. Every show is just about the same (house gets intrigued about some case, follows a few false diagnosis and then finally shows his briliant insight to discover the real problem.....) the only real interesting part of the show is the back stories (Stacy/houses love life (or lack of), jabs with wilson, cameron & Oz boy romp, etc.) They really need to develop some more in these areas to grow the show.

I don't think she's a hermaphrodite. I only took Bio 101 but here's what I remember. Fetuses start out as "female" as the "male" sex is a genetic abberation. After a fetus with XY chromosomes starts producing hormones, the male sexual organ is formed from parts that would normally develop into female genitalia. Without the testosterone normal male fetuses produce, her organs continued to develop into what normal women have. Since she never had male genitalia and it's implied that her genitalia were unambiguously female in appearance, she's not a hermaphrodite. I think of her as a genetic male, of the female gender, with female sexual organs. What most people consider to be hermaphrodites would probably be someone with ambiguous genitalia or perhaps of ambiguous biological sex.

Since I'm neither an MD nor particularly versed in human sexuality, if I've made a mistake, feel free to correct me.

Not to worry, you done good(too bad though that apparently the doc's couldn't tell the dif between an ovary and a testis by ultrasonic appearance - but that's nit-picking for sure).

Thanks everyone. I will do that. I would buy them but I'm not willing to pay for a show that isn't anamorphic widescreen.

I wouldn't call it an "aberration," nor a "defect" as my wife teasingly put it after we watched the show and had the same discussion. Rather, the transformation of a Y chromosome fetus's sexual identify into that of a male is more like an "advancement."
I, too, am neither a doctor, nor a biologist, but I play one in this thread.

You can say the same thing about the majority of shows on television. CSI is the same way. They start following a few false leads and finally they find the right evidence to discover the real killer. It's all about how they get there that makes it interesting. Same with House.

after the crappy stacy storyline, which was mostly due to the lack of chemistry between ward and laurie, I'd be much happier if they just did season 1 type episodes, with clinic scenes in between.

The clinic scenes are one of my favorite parts of the show, and I also was never thrilled about the whole Stacy/House thing...

Yeah, this is why I gave up on CSI (all three) a long time ago. CSI looks fantastic in HD, but it's just the same story over and over. House, I actually care about (like) and I'm hoping they find ways to not just tell the same story over and over again.

I watched CSI Miami earlier this week and I was blown away by the PQ. I don't watch that show too often, but man, what eye candy!
