House, M.D.

Skin Deep - S2-E13

Plot hole: When Wilson does an ultrasound to check for cancer in Alex' ovaries he fails to notice the fact that she doesn't have a uterus. If he mistook her bladder for her uterus, which sometimes happens, she would have appeared to be missing her bladder instead. Yet Wilson doesn't pick up on anything being missing.

All In - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: In Season 2, Episode 17 - "All In", the young patient goes into respiratory arrest. You see the doctors remove the pillow from underneath his head to put the breathing tube in, but in the next shot, the pillow is back.

Failure to Communicate - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: When the scene starts with Stacy and House in the airport about to start talking, she has a pen in her mouth. In the very next shot it's on her ear, and in the next it's gone. It switches back and forth throughout the rest of the scene.

Forever - S2-E22

Plot hole: In the scene with Mikey in the NICU, the alarms start to go off, stating that he is in distress. The nurse screams "He's in V-fib!" and everyone rushes around him. In the next shot they show the heart monitor just before Chase shocks Mikey's heart. The problem is that the heart rate is so fast with one wide complex that it would actually be Supraventricular Tachycardia with 1 Premature Ventricular Contraction (SVT with 1 PVC), which is far less serious than V-fib and wouldn't require the heart to be shocked.

Forever - S2-E22

Continuity mistake: About 5 minutes in, when Foreman struggles with opening the coffee package, House rips the entire top of the package off with his teeth. In the following shots, you can see that the coffee package merely has a corner ripped off.

Deception - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: When House and Anica are outside before he gives her the injection, watch the amount of snow on the lapels of her coat. It changes back and forth between barely any snow and a lot of snow several times without her ever brushing any off.

Guy

All In - S2-E17

Continuity mistake: Ian (the patient) moves his hand while he is in cardiac arrest, then almost immediately, Chase checks Ian's pulse and the sleeve of his shirt changes position. (00:31:10)

Autopsy - S2-E2

Factual error: When Andie is going in for her MRI, Chase starts the machine with Andie's steel IV pole in the room. No doctor would ever do that considering the damage that would be done to machine and patient. (00:05:45)

Greg Dwyer

TB or Not TB - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Dr. Cameron is walking with Dr. Charles to go for a procedure, he barely has any facial hair before they enter the stairwell, but once they reach the stairwell his facial hair has increased quite a bit. His hair is also parted to the left prior to entering the stairwell and once in the stairwell it is parted on both sides.

Forever - S2-E22

Character mistake: House says to Chase "I've got a dead baby for you to biopsy." A biopsy is a test performed on tissue from a living patient. He should have said 'autopsy' - the procedure performed on a dead person to determine how they died. House, as a doctor, would know this distinction. (00:32:45)

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.
