Did You Know?


This is one of the few episodes in the series in which House's sarcasm and jokes are very minimal. See more »


When trying to diagnose Amber, the team rules out diet pills because she is in liver failure, which couldn't have been caused by the pills. The liver failure could easily have been caused by massive blunt trauma from the bus crash that took out both her kidneys. See more »


Dr. Gregory House: [about Amber] The trauma must have stimulated a pre-existing heart condition.
Dr. Chris Taub: Autoimmune congenital anomaly, blood clotting disorder, lead poisoning...
Thirteen: Could be anything.
Dr. Gregory House: Great! Let's explore that. Quick, get her on panacea.

Amazing... I can barely find words.
20 May 2008 | by Malware-32See all my reviews

After watching this episode I did not know how to feel. It was probably the best and worst moment in any TV-show that I've ever seen. I just sat silently, listening to the music with tears falling from my eyes, the fact that i cried for the first time in five years almost shocked me more than the ending.

The characters in this show have never felt more alive than after this episode, and I can't wait to see more - Nothing can compare to this show when it comes to the actors skill, the script and the ability for the show to really affect you a deeper way than you thought possible.

I love this show and will continue watching it for as long as it airs.
