House, M.D.

Runaways - S8-E10

Continuity mistake: The runaway has an attack when her mother shows up and coughs blood on the table. There is an emesis basin at the far end of the table she throws up on. The shot changes twice and now there is FAR more blood on the table and the basin has moved to the middle of the table. Before the first shot change, Taub is reaching for the basin, however, after the change he is moving away without enough time to move the basin. The shot changes again and the patient is now in the bed with Adams holding the basin under her mouth. There is not enough time in that shot change for her to move from the foot of the bed to in the bed.

Guy

Charity Case - S8-E3

Continuity mistake: House is in the cafeteria eating chips with Adams discussing a case. Park walks up and gives Adams a cup of coffee. The cup of coffee disappears and reappears during the whole scene. The coffee is in front of Adams, then isn't. Towards the end the coffee is far to the side rather than where it originally was set. (00:17:10 - 00:18:45)

Transplant - S8-E2

Character mistake: While talking to a patient awaiting a lung Transplant, Wilson comments that there is no urine in the catheter bag "despite taking in 200 cc of fluids." I suspect that Wilson meant to say 'despite taking in 2000 cc of fluids' as it would take more than 7 fluid ounces of intake (without noticeable output) before a doctor would begin to worry about decreasing kidney function. A minimum urine output of 30cc/hr is expected for a 70 kg human at a maintenance IV rate of 25-30 ml/kg/day (~73-88 cc/hr). (00:16:01)

Runaways - S8-E10

Factual error: When Dr. House is in the treatment room with a patient that has a gunshot wound to his foot, he removes a bloody dressing and treats the area without wearing gloves. No health professional would do this.

Humpty Dumpty - S2-E3

Dr. Foreman: You really want to screw Whitey? Be one of the few black men to live long enough to collect social security. Take the medicine.

More quotes from House, M.D.

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.

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.

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.
