House
“No More Mr. Nice Guy”

House is back! This week, the patient is a guy named Jeff and he has a wiggly eye, he’s too nice and everything tastes like lemon meringue pie. With the exception of the wiggly eye, that’s a disease I can get behind. Any disease that makes things taste like pie is alright with me. The niceness is what intrigues House about the patient because as you remember, House is the opposite of too nice. Some people would go so far as to call him mean and hateful and downright rude. I call him dreamy.

    Jeff’s wife is one of the nurses on strike. Quick aside…notice that the nurses’ strike picket signs look just like the writer’s strike signs. Is there a universal strike sign or something? Anyway, Nurse Wife likes Jeff just the way he is.

    House and the Houselings think Jeff has syphilis but it turns out he just has a parasite. That’s pretty much all that happens with ol Jeff there. We got none of the usual blood vomiting, organ failure, internal camera animations. Nothing but a stroke so big wow there. The rest of the episode was just…well, I don’t know what it was. The Houselings find an old vial of House’s blood and test him for syphilis because if the syph was making Jeff too nice, maybe it made House too mean. For some reason the Houselings shared this info with Cameron and Chase. Cameron thinks that treating House for the syph will make him lose his diagnostic skills. She’s so adamant about it that Chase thinks Cameron and House slept together. It doesn’t matter anyway because House switched the blood and he doesn’t have syphilis. Apparently, that whole issue was so the Houselings would learn something. I have no idea what they were supposed to get from that other than learning how to waste time when they have a dying patient.

    Then there’s the Amber-Wilson-House love triangle of doom. House wants joint custody of Wilson and there’s this whole thing about using Wilson to thwart Amber and I just don’t get it. Maybe someone can let me know in the comments why I should care about this.

    This episode was jus ok. Not ground breaking and definitely not the best episode of House I’ve ever seen. If I had to rate it, I’d say it was actually the worse episode of House I’ve seen, not counting the Tritter arc because I refuse to count the Tritter arc. I don’t believe it exists.

    I want to highlight a couple of my favorite lines:

    House: “Who thinks that happiness is not a symptom?”
    (Houselings all raise their hands.)
    House: “Who thinks that their vote counts?”
    (House raises hand.)

    House to the Jehovah’s Witness at the door: “Oh, you’re selling religion. I bought some Islam yesterday.”

    House to Cuddy: “Your eyes don’t tell us anything because we’re looking at your boobs.”

    So, what did you all think? Do you get the Wilson-Amber storyline? Do you think Foreman is as irrelevant as I do? Did you think Chase’s bowling glove was douchy?

    Leave your Two Cents and call me in the morning.
