Maternity - S1-E4

Corrected entry: In the scene where House and Foreman ride the elevator down and are talking about Cameron, if you look at the the back of the elevator, there are panels where a light is shown moving up to signify that the elevator is moving down. When the elevator reaches the ground floor and there is a "ding," you can see that the light in the panels is visible while the door is opening, but then continues to go up and disappear out of sight even though Foreman and House are walking out of the elevator.

Correction: I have been on a lot of elevators where the bell goes off before the door opens and its still moving down.


Fidelity (aka: Truth or Consequences) - S1-E7

Corrected entry: 7 minutes and 30 seconds into chapter 3, Dr. Cameron and Dr. House are walking through a hall-way and Dr. Cameron's mic wire is very evident under her shirt.

Correction: The show is not recorded with mikes, no show is. The show is filmed with booms - overhead microphones on sticks.

DNR - S1-E9

Corrected entry: At the end when the jazz player comes off the elevator says that he has been discharged. Hospitals require that a patient be wheel chaired out.


Correction: I work in a hospital and have had plenty of my patients not wheeled out. If someone says no, you can't FORCE them to.

Heavy - S1-E16

Corrected entry: When Jessica is first shown jumping rope the ground is normal. In some of the close ups of her feet after this suddenly the ground has become very bouncy like a trampoline.

Correction: Actually, having reviewed this scene, the ground is bouncy in all shots, including the initial shot. Take a look again.

Cursed - S1-E13

Corrected entry: In this episode we learn that Chase is 26 years old. Considering that he's studied to become a priest, gone through four years of college, four years of med school, two years as an intern, four years as a resident and that he's worked for House for at least a year, that means he graduated high school at the age of 10 (if not earlier).

Correction: Chase could have graduated high school at 17. Then graduated undergraduate in 3 years. 4 years of medical school and 2 as a resident. (You do your internship while in medical school). Plus there are some colleges that do a combined undergraduate/graduate program that lasts 6 years. He could have studied as a priest as an undergrad.

The Socratic Method - S1-E6

Corrected entry: The show runs in approximately real time. "The Socratic Method" (1x06) is set around Christmas. Several characters note that it's House's birthday (although the exact date isn't specified). In the S2 finale, "No Reason" (2x24) House is wearing an admissions bracelet after being shot, and it reads "DOB 06-11-59."

Correction: As revealed later in the S2 finale, everything that happened since House got shot is an hallucination, so it's possible that the DOB on his bracelet would be wrong.

Paternity - S1-E2

Corrected entry: When the episode starts Dan is playing lacross for a team called the Tartans. Towards the end the team is called the Comets.

Correction: It's a completely different team. Not a mistake.

Cursed - S1-E13

Corrected entry: Chase tells the two boys that he's a doctor treating Gabe Riley. That's a direct violation of his confidentiality, which no doctor would make.

Correction: This show requires some suspension of disbelief, as all of the doctors, including House, routinely violate protocol, not to mention the law, as when they break into peoples houses.

Occam's Razor - S1-E3

Corrected entry: The episode begins with the patient in bed with his girlfriend. When she straddles him, we can see that her underwear is still on. A second later, they begin having sex without her ever removing or lowering them. (00:01:10)

Correction: She needn't remove or lower them, she simply pulls aside the gusset of her knickers and away you go.
