The Socratic Method - S1-E6

Question: In "The Socratic Method," Lucy Palmero (the patient with supposed schizophrenia) has a book that is read to her throughout the episode - the quote most often used is "I will talk no more of the long war" or something similar to that. What book is this from? I tried to spot the title when watching the episode, but I couldn't get it.

Chosen answer: The line, "I will talk no more of books or the long war" comes from a poem called "Her Praise" by WB Yeats, so the book could be one of many collections of poetry or Yeats' poems. You can read the poem here if you'd like: http://www.bartleby.com/148/21.html.

Mistakes

House is playing 'Metroid: Zero Mission' on his Gameboy at various times. The Metroid series does not feature space monkeys, nor are there distinct levels. The sounds coming from the game in the show do not match it in real life, and Samus morphing into a ball is most definitely not a failure state.

Trivia

Hugh Laurie auditioned for the role as Dr. Gregory House in his hotel room bathroom in Namibia. He was rehearsing his role for the film The Flight of the Phoenix and claimed that the bathroom was the only place with enough light. He also apologized for his appearance on tape before the audition as he'd just come back from filming. The fact that House has a somewhat scruffy and unkempt look, particularly his constant five o'clock shadow, has been attributed by creator David Shore to Laurie's appearance in this audition tape.
