Thanks for the quick response. I had checked the Amazon user comments before I purchased it and they didn't indicate any problem with the presentation mode. So I was racking my brain trying to figure out what I was doing wrong. The answer makes perfect sense.

And yeah, it is sad they screwed it up. I'm just glad I got it on sale on Black Friday.

what was the 30 silver coin's reference to when wilson walked into Tritter's room.?
I assume he is fessing up before Chase does.

Looks like things are reaching critical mass. Shame we have to wait two weeks.
And to get to that point, all it took was House almost causing a 6 year old child to be needlesly crippled. I don't see Wilson as a "Judas" as his 30 pieces of silver comment indicated as House isn't an innocent man. I think things had gotten to the point that somebody had to say something for the good of House, the hospital and it's doctors and especially for the patients. I'm not sure of Wilson's motive to give evidence before Chase could.

How so?

Just who exactly is at fault? In my book there is one and only one person Trigger. He set all this in motion for whatever reason and is pulling all the strings. House was fully functional when he was well med'd, with out them, in pain he makes mistakes.

not to be an enabler I think that House should explore alternative option for pain management, but that would ruin the plot.

Good episode.

I liked the opening scene with House shining the red dot on Cuddy's cleavage!

My wife and I thought about that, and we think it is probably that Wilson believes he is protecting Chase. Given the bizzare "friendship" he has with House, it is more likely that it would be better for a friend to be the one to do it. It isn't really betrayal, but the act of someone who wants to see House get the help he needs.

Besides, I'm sure Wilson knows that Greg is in trouble and that eventually he would do something that would have dire consequences.

Guess Wilson figured out that House darn near cutting off a couple of limbs on a little girl changes everything.

I do wonder though. From a medical standpoint, can someone actually function at a higher level when taking pain meds?

I cannot but repeat the cliche' once again "I love this show !!".

Marvelous writing - medical procedural oddities notwithstanding. Great cast - especially Hugh Laurie - deserving of an Emmy. For me, House is the best character created on TV in the past few years.

I was always hoping that one of House's underlings would finally come through one of these days instead of just taking up space and getting their ideas shot down systematicaly .... never thought that when they did that it would keep House from maiming a child.

What a great show.

I'm thinking it's possible that Wilson decided to go to Tritter to perhaps put House in a better light than what would have been cast if Chase had been the one to 'sell him out'. Guess we'll see.

What a great show.

I think Wilson just figured that enough was enough.

Wonder where the writers are going to take us with the Tritter character. So many roads, so little time.....

I'm guessing Wilson went to see Tritter to cover his a$$, as most of House's stash came from Wilson's scrip pad.

It was 2 prescriptions he wrote on Wilsons pad, not a whole stash. But it looks like he was certainly saving up with all the drugs they found in his house.

And nice to see people finally getting Tritters name right. God Morse plays a good meanie!

If you watched the preview of next week's episode it explains it.

Wilson did a good thing, he worked out a deal for House, that if House goes into treatment for 2 months, everything will be dropped. However, I don't think House will go for it and I hope he doesn't.

I hate that cop, I hope he gets what is coming to him, he crossed the line.

I also don't believe a lone cop has that much power that he can freeze assets with no proof, suspend licenses, etc. That is a lawsuit waiting to happen, you can't just do that to someone based on a flimsy investigation. What proof did he have that they did anything? Weak.

I was figuring that Wilson saw Chase's chin (from the take-down punch) and knew he had crossed the line and had to be stopped one way or another. Taking down a freind is one thing, but sinking to physical abuse could be the topper.

My wife and I were also wondering about the 30 silver coins. Didn't think it would be going back to Judas, because House is definatly no Jesus.

Must have missed that part. It seemed to me that in addition to Wilson writing scrips for House, House was writing scrips for House on Wilson's pad.

God knows, House isn't Jesus, but Wilson IS playing Judas, in all respects. I wouldn't be surprised to see Wilson kiss House as the cops come to arrest him.

Wilson may be giving up House, but I would not say he is like Judas. I know true friends stick around even in bad times, but Wilson has already realized that House is in it for himself and doesn't care about friends in any way.

Perhaps the Judge that Tritter is working with to get the various favorable rulings was also treated by House during clinic hours. That's how I make sense of it =)

My theory...House will wake up from the induced coma after the gunshot wound and everything will be back to normal. It may take a few more episodes.

I was thinking Wilson went to Tritter before Chase to be able to work out a deal that was favorable to all parties involved. Remeber Wilson's lawyer told him he could be going to jail for helping House out. If Chase had gone to Tritter first Wilson's admissions would carry less power therefore his deal would not be as good for himself.

This hit me last night that his name is Tritter and not Trigger. Someone was unsure of his name in this post here and others, myself included, just picked up on it and have used it since. After all, if you repeat something enough times, it becomes fact right?

I don't know if this is the writers' intent (nor my POV), but I'm sure you'll find many people blaming the cop, the legal system and society, not House, for almost maiming the girl. After all, if House had his pills he would have diagnosed correctly, no? His record of infallibility is still intact. The only time he's failed is when it's someone ELSE'S fault.

What a great show.

I agree, although I'm not sure how much of that comes from Laurie himself (a great deal, no doubt), the rest of the cast (pretty good) and the scripts (getting better lately).

The point being that Judas was alledgedly Jesus' closest friend (emphasis on "closest friend") ... come on now , even a "godless heathen" like myself knows that part.

I think that "I'm going to need 30 pieces of silver" was a reference to betrayal in general. I don't think that it was intended to draw lines of similarity between House and Jesus.

I agree with Grammar Police on the "coins" reference. The writers often throw in cultural, literary, or historical references for the characters to use; none of those require us to associate the character using the allusion to the original source.
