House, M.D.

Detox - S1-E11

Question: Why wasn't the naphthalene poisoning noticed when tests were run? It's easily detectable through blood tests, and scans.

Occam's Razor - S1-E3

Question: I apologize I guessed at the episode, it was the one which featured Brandon, the boy who had the pills mix up and had sex with his fiancée at the beginning. I'm a little confused as to the ending, what was the significance of the letters on the pills? Why did the two doctors make a big deal about it when Brandon told them about it? Why was House so pleased to find those two pills in the inventory? It seemed like a sudden end to me.

Chosen answer: You have the right episode. The big deal at the end about the letters on the pills was to show that Brandon had the wrong pills all along. House was smiling because he was right.


Maternity - S1-E4

Question: Two questions: What is the Socratic Method of teaching and why is it the best teaching method?

Chosen answer: House references Syd Barret, not Dave Gilmour, because Syd is a schitzophrenic, just like Socrates and Issac Newton were. House was talking about how some of the great people in history were schitzophrenics. The Socratic Method, defined, is "where questions (and only questions) are used to arouse curiosity and at the same time serve as a logical, incremental, step-wise guide that enables students to figure out about a complex topic or issue with their own thinking and insights."

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:

Love Hurts - S1-E20

Question: I'm not sure if this is the right episode. My question comes from the episode about the girl with cancer and the brain tumor(recent episode) What is the song that House is listening to before and after the others come into the showers to listen to the heartbeat?

Chosen answer: "Nessun Dorma" from Giacomo Puccini's "Turandot". The episode was "Autopsy".

House: As long as you're trying to be good, you can do whatever you want.

House: So between us, we can do whatever we want. We can rule the world!



Episode 6.12, Moving The Chains: Marcus tells House that he and Eric were arrested for stealing a car, he was 16 and Eric was 14. He also says that his brother never did anything criminal after that. In season 1, we were told that Eric was 16 when he was arrested for stealing a car.



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.
