Methadone looks a lot like NyQuil.

This constant switching back and forth between a possible "solution" for House and back to his former state is wearing thin for me.

That one was great. I'm giving it the Excellent since it was probably the best one since the episode with House's father's funeral. I agree that him giving up the cure at the end was a little weak but Cuddy bringing up his fear of change made it worth it, I think.

And the line of the episode was definately: "My penis stopped breath, you need to give it CPR."

Indeed. I liked that it was a "House-centric" episode. Focusing on him and his triple need to be brilliant, pain-free and miserable.

Did anyone notice how many times they mentioned SLE tonight? It's like they suddenly learned that could suggest lupus without saying lupus...

Not great, but better than the last couple of episodes. Actually focusing on House is a welcome change of pace.

Relative lack of emphasis on Foreteen + more focus on House's character + interesting POTW + some great one-liners = a rather good, if standard, episode of House, M.D.. Awesome.

I'm waiting for "Who needs med school when you have wi-fi?" to show up on a signature...

This ep was a lot better than the last couple of eps.
When House turned in to Hugh Lauriei half expected to hear a British accent.
Some great one lines ..House doesn't do happy' twice the risk of death but no risk of arrest.
I hope they keep this up with the rest of the season.

And yet another episode with neither Cameron nor Chase...it's so sad that they're still in the opening credits...

This. Never thought I'd see House do a reset button, but as someone else said, the way it was done was really good.

Also loved Taub taking the piss out of Foreman especially the Terminator reference
