Can someone tell me how last night's episode ended? I got up to the part when we realize the patient is actually House after telling the three stories (about 45 minutes in). Thanks for your help. I hope this episode is repeated soon.

House wanted to be put in a temporary coma to avoid the pain. When this happened, Sela Ward told Cuddy to remove the dead muscle tissue, which severely compromised the use of his leg. Also, at the end of the lecture House told Cuddy that the sick doctor he was subbing for was suffering from lead poisoning caused by drinking from his coffee mug.

Thanks for the update. I believe House also drank from that mug during his lecture?!

He drank from it briefly, I think, and then gave it a dirty look.

He took a drink from the cup and then spit the water back into the cup.

Yea, it was quite an interesting episode. I was left wondering if maybe in a future episode they would come up with the evidence to nail the record keeper guy, but probably not. Kind of unusual for the bad guy to get away with it in these shows.

I absolutely loved House last night. When the students asked about who would catch the snake and House said you have people for that, and then it cut to those two... freaking classic. I started wondering if one of the people was him, but I was wrong about who it was. Really explains why Cuddy cuts him the slack she does though.

Only thing that bothered me is the medical proxy use. His doctor KNEW what he wanted. No ifs, ands, or buts. She should not, legally, have operated. Minor annoyance, and one that I'm sure I will forget about.

You're right, but Cuddy did exactly what House would have done (as a doctor). She broke the rules. I liked the irony.

Was House an employee of the hospital at the time of his illness or did he join the staff later?

Despite the outcome, apparently House did not pursue major legal action.

The question that will always be asked is whether or not House's gamble or Cuddy's breaking the rules was the right choice.

Notice how House's audience in the lecture room was growing? House left little doubt that he was the right person to keep after Vogler's power play.

I was bothered a lot more by the episode a couple of weeks ago with the pregnant 12 year old. House said that according to New Jersey law that it had to be aborted and he could not inform the parents without her permission. I thought you couldn't give a minor aspirin without the parents consent?

That had to be the most creative presentation of a backstory I have ever seen on TV. Also, the Carmen Electra stuff was priceless.

Actually I believe House didn't say it had to be aborted, that was up to her. He said it was New Jersey law that he couldn't inform her parents that she was pregnant.

I'm still talking to co-workers about last night's episode. Kudos to the writers!

Yep, I noticed that also. It looked like more and more doctors from the hospital were sitting in on the lecture.

They didn't actually say, but it was somewhat implied when he told the nurse he was going to have a cardiac arrest and she did what he asked her to do. She probably wouldn't have done that without knowing him.

I watched House early and enjoyed it. Then I found Veronica Mars and since Kristen Bell >> Hugh Laurie, I stopped watching House. Fortunately summer reruns will let me catch up, but I really need Fox to bump House up an hour or for WB to move Veronica to another night. Why can't these network execs get their programming schedules to fit my TV watching schedule?

Last night's was quite good, especially you never had House's backstory.

Veronica is on UPN, but regardless, I agree with you. I record VM and House, but watch House live. UPN should move VM to Wednesdays after Top Model, it's a better fit for it.

Yesterday (5/17/05), there was an interview with the producer and the medical advisor of "House", on NPR's "Fresh Air" program. They also contribute to the writing of this show. I wish I could have called in and asked them who wrote the line that attributed the cause of toxoplasmosis to a "fungus". You can read an article about "House" and this interview on NPR's website and listen to the archived interview, under "Fresh Air", on the programming section. http://www.npr.org

Histoplasmosis (not Toxoplasmosis) *is* caused by a fungus endemic to the midwestern and southeastern U.S. It commonly grows in bird droppings. Blastomycosis is caused by a fungus found in the southwestern U.S. which can cause similar symptoms. It's possible this was the mistake that was made, although I didn't see the episode you are referring to.

I have watched this show from the beginning and must admit that I didn't like Dr. House much at first. He was just too over the top. Once they developed the character a little I started to appreciate his sense of humor and now think he's really funny.

This last show was very good and shows that there are still some creative people in the TV business. I hope it sticks around for a few seasons.
