House, M.D.

House, M.D. (2004)

4 corrected entries in season 5

Birthmarks - S5-E4

Corrected entry: When House and Wilson are sitting on the bench at the police station, Wilson is moving his arms while he talks. His hands are visible. Then the officer comes over and removes their handcuffs with the audible click and Wilson rubbing his wrists.


Correction: What is the mistake here?


Adverse Events - S5-E3

Corrected entry: During the opening scene where the painter is painting the portrait of the woman, there is a shot of the painting where you can see the woman's shoulder and jaw profile. You can see that the picture isn't distorted like the painting you see after the painter gets hit.

Correction: That is because you see it from the painter's point of view. He had no idea his portraits were distorted, so he didn't see them that way.


The Softer Side - S5-E16

Corrected entry: Several references are made to the patient having both male and female DNA. There is no such thing as "male" or "female" DNA. DNA is just a molecule. It's the chromosomes (specifically the X and Y chromosomes) formed from the DNA that determine if someone is male or female.


Correction: What they are referring to is that he has two distinct lines of cells: one with an XY pairing (thus, "male DNA") and one with an XX pairing ("female DNA"). This is a known but rare occurrence. Check out the Polite Dissent site for a doctor's review of the medicine in this episode and others.


The Greater Good - S5-E14

Corrected entry: In the episode "The Greater Good," House is forced to use the stairs and uses his cane with the wrong hand.

Correction: House actually uses his cane in the wrong hand all the time. He uses it on the opposite leg, something that Cuddy even points out in a previous episode.

House: As long as you're trying to be good, you can do whatever you want.
Dr. Wilson: And as long as you're not trying, you can say 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.
