Corrected entry: While in the elevator with House and Melinda, Foreman gives her Atropine to stabilize her heart, which has slowed to a dangerous rate while House is looking for the tick. Atropine affects the vagus nerve to increase a patient's heart rate. This nerve is cut during the heart transplant procedure which would render Atropine completely ineffective with patients such as Melinda. The only treatment for her is a pacemaker, otherwise, she most likely would have died in the elevator.firemedicwolf7
Corrected entry: The scene with the poker game. House claims to have a straight flush. His cards showing are 2, 6, 8, 4 of clubs. He then is called, turns over his last card and says, "Nine bucks for a straight flush". A straight flush consists of five cards in a row, the same suit. No card could have made his hand.
Corrected entry: House says Einthoven was Belgian, but in fact he was Dutch. It does not serve a further purpose in the episode, and it would have been the character's mistake if that character hadn't been House. Because the series is based on House being near omniscient, it must be a factual mistake.
Corrected entry: House is told Laura can't donate her heart because she has Hepatitis C. He declares that she doesn't have hep c, since it doesn't present with a fever and an upset stomach, which Laura had that morning. While hep C doesn't present that way, people with chronic hep C still get fevers and stomach problems like everyone else. Her fresh symptoms are completely irrelevant when it comes to whether or not she has hep C.
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.
