House, M.D.
House, M.D. mistake picture

Informed Consent - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: House is about to inject Ezra Powell (Joel Grey) with what is supposedly a lethal dose of morphine. In the shots where they pan out to show House addressing the room at large, the syringe is very full, almost completely. When they zoom in on House holding the syringe, it is only filled a fraction of that much - maybe a quarter to a third. This doesn't happen just once, but every time they switch between shots.

Meaning - S3-E1

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where House and Allison are walking down the stairs, they round a corner and we see a dolly shot down a short hall with a glass wall in front. During this shot, a camera, cameraman, and dolly are visible in reflections on the glass. (00:08:20)

Fools for Love - S3-E5

Factual error: The show is suppose to take place in New Jersey but when detective Triter pulls House over and shows his badge, it's an LAPD badge. (00:57:00 - 00:59:00)

One Day, One Room - S3-E12

Factual error: A kid is being taken to surgery to remove a magnet he swallowed because it may be stuck in his upper intestine. House diagnoses that the magnet is already in the lower intestine by taking a scalpel and showing that it's magnetically attracted to the lower abdomen. Surgical scalpels are made of high grade stainless steel and are not attracted by magnets.

One Day, One Room - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: In the scene where House is in Wilson's Office and House needs advice about what to tell the rape victim, when the shots change between lines, the direction of the cane's handle changes with the shots.

Needle in a Haystack - S3-E13

Other mistake: House and Wilson are in the Mens room, and there is a tampon/sanitary pad dispenser. (00:21:30)

Merry Little Christmas - S3-E10

Other mistake: Just by looking at Abigail's mother, it is obvious that she does not have cartilage hair hypoplasia (Meredith Eaton has pseudoachondroplasia).

Airborne - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: When Wilson and the team are walking and stop in front of Fran's room, you can see Robin lounging in a chair in the background. In the next shot, Robin is gone.

Act Your Age - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: In the last scene where Wilson is in House's office talking about Cuddy, the tennis ball on House's desk continuously changes position between shots.

Act Your Age - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: When Cameron apologizes to Chase at the coffee machine, Chase's hair goes from in and out of his left eye between shots without him touching it.

Son of Coma Guy - S3-E7

Factual error: House makes a person have a seizure by switching the light on and off. This would not cause a person to have seizure as it takes more flickering than that to trigger a seizure in people with photosensitive epilepsy.

The Jerk - S3-E23

Factual error: The boy plays a game of chess at a tournament against some other person. The camera only shows a few pictures of the board, however, when the boy says "goodbye" and the game ends, due to an allegedly checkmate, the following is shown: the opponents king is on f7, with his own figures all around but e8 and h7-9 being free. On h5 is the boy's rook which attacks the h7, h8 and h9 fields. Now the boy moves his bishop to h6, thus attacks f7 (where the king is) and e8 (the only free spot but h6-8). Now of course h6, f7 and e8 are not available to the king anymore, but as the bishop blocks the rooks attack on the h-line, the king now has the fields h7 and h8 to go to. Thus it's by no means "checkmate." (00:01:00)

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.
