In-house House party attended by annoyed hubby, who hates commercials
WHEW, That was close, but I'm still able to say with complete conviction
HOUSE LIED TO SAINTED RAPE VICTIM IN ODOR!!!!!!
Feel free to join me in a good old fashioned happy dance.
Other happy-making stuff: House and Wilson. Wilson and House. Yeah, I know you fluffy types think you've got on an opening for post-ep fluffy, schmoopy sex after this ep. Go ahead and take it. It's still a lie in the big picture, but I'm so happy to have dodged the bullet that I'm feeling gracious. And funeral home scene was a helluva lot closer to hate!sex if you ask me.
I do like the back story. Loved that the cop turned out to be cool and NOT a Tritter.
Bastard House and Self-Righteous Prick Wilson for the win.
How much did I LOVE Foreman walking out on the Newbies and going to Chase and Cameron. FCC-IN THE HOUSE!!!!!
Taub and Chase both needed shaves, but Chase looked semi-yummy while Taub just looked grimy. Taub, I still don't care about your or your wife. Kutner, I don't care about your parents, and your continuing attempts to be Chase by bonding with the patient. Thirteen, I reallyreally don't care about you in any way, size shape or form. (Major pukarama for next weeks promos.)
It was reallyreally nice to see some actual good parents for a chance, considering the evil birth parents and of course Evil Bastard Daddy House, but NOT abusive Daddy House, and certainly NOT SEXUALLY ABUSIVE DADDY HOUSE. (Let me do that happy dance again!)
Good continuity: Chase referencing The Mistake.
Bad continuity: The backstory sort of contradicts House's statement in Fools For Love "I've watched you go through three bad marriages," and other dialogue that's implied that House was around for the break-up of Wilson's first marriage as well as the other two.
Not sure where this leaves us in terms of decoding House's words to Gabe in Son Of Coma Guy, that the one thing he wants his father to say is, "You were right. You did the right thing."
House/Cuddy pants dropping. Well he's seen hers so turnabout is certainly fair play. However, the costume department is STILL out to get Lisa E, with that wrinkly skirt. WTF people?
Still not 100% clear whether the H/W Louisiana hookup pre-dates Stacy or not, however it clearly pre-dates the infarction, making Wilson's absence in Three Stories even more of a mystery.
I really did love the ending, but only because I don't think slightly morose drunken House and Wilson with no where else to go, really equals schmoopy fluff. It equals a stupid, screwed up friendship.
Those are the guys I fell in love with. Nice to have them back.
Now lets keep the text sub and tell other stories where the patient is actually interesting.
AND MORE FCC-
Come on House, if you can get Wilson back you can get Chase and Cameron.
