The Softer Side - S5-E16

Corrected entry: Several references are made to the patient having both male and female DNA. There is no such thing as "male" or "female" DNA. DNA is just a molecule. It's the chromosomes (specifically the X and Y chromosomes) formed from the DNA that determine if someone is male or female.

Correction: What they are referring to is that he has two distinct lines of cells: one with an XY pairing (thus, "male DNA") and one with an XX pairing ("female DNA"). This is a known but rare occurrence. Check out the Polite Dissent site for a doctor's review of the medicine in this episode and others.

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.
