Trivia

While arguing with Cuddy over the carpet in his office, House starts chanting "ATTICA! ATTICA! ATTICA!". This is a reference to the Attica prison riot in 1971, where prisoners took control of the facility after an uprising against the poor conditions. See more »

Goofs

Calcium carbonate is occasionally used as an anti-diarrhoeal (as indicated by House while discussing the case with Foreman in Cuddy's office). However, he later defends its use in Adam by reasoning that he had constipation. See more »
