Corrected entry: When House gets called back into work by Cameron it is almost midnight, as stated by Cameron. House then goes up on the roof, where the sun is shown either setting or rising. He then goes back down to his team and checks his watch to note when midnight occurs and Foreman's four weeks in charge are over. This episode takes place in the days directly following last week's episode, which was set during winter (complete with a heavy snowstorm). In winter the sun neither sets nor rises around midnight.

Correction: Given that hospitals are open on a 24 hour basis, House is likely calculating the end of the 4 weeks as being the start of the morning shift on the 29th day.He comes in at midnight, some time passes, sees the sun rise from the roof, then the 28th day ends. No problem.BTW, the sun never rises or sets near midnight in Princeton, New Jersey so proving that it was winter is overkill..

House: As long as you're trying to be good, you can do whatever you want.
Dr. Wilson: And as long as you're not trying, you can say whatever you want.
House: So between us, we can do whatever we want. We can rule the world!



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.



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.
