Meanwhile, House makes a choice that alter his relationship with his closest friends.
"Friends?" He's only got one close friend, Wilson. Maybe Thirteen counts as a friend after recent events, but still, it seems the copywriter here doesn't know the show very well.

I just hope that we finally get to see the suit and see him fly.

In the age of Facebook, the word "Friend" doesn't mean anything anymore.

After last week's insane episode it would fit.

Re: House: 7x23 "Moving On" - Discussion and Spoilers

I did, too, SG-17. And from his reaction to Wilson -- and then when he did after -- he really strikes me as someone who got what it was that was eating at him out of his system.

Re: House: 7x23 "Moving On" - Discussion and Spoilers

Pretty stupid of Wilson to tell House to act out his anger right when he was getting behind the wheel of a car. And if House is overdosing on Vicodin, would Wilson let him drive in the first place?

And did House know that they'd be out of the dining room at that moment?

Interesting argument House made to the performance artist, that if she changed her priorities now and chose life and love over her dedication to her art and the pain that came with it, then it would render all her past experiences meaningless. I guess the subtext was that he's afraid to really change his life because it would require admitting that all the suffering he's put himself through wasn't really necessary.

Re: House: 7x23 "Moving On" - Discussion and Spoilers

Man, I don't really know what to think of this episode, it was "good" but what House did just seemed.... extreme. Even for him.

Not really sure how I feel about this but my feelings, passion and even "sympathy" for the House character has slipped a lot over the last 1/2-season and far from where it was when the series began.

I can see where he's coming from, know people react like this all of the time, but... Wow. One also wonders how it he gets out of all of this between now and next season and how he retains not only his freedom but his medical license.

Also, the framing of the episode suggests that Cuddy and Wilson were talking to the police/fire department about this incident probably within an hour of it happening. (And the fire department and crowd that seemed to be there seemed to be too much for a car crashed into a House and no one being hurt.) I think it's impossible that within the time it took the police to get there and start filing a report that House could've even gotten to an airport let-alone, to an airport, bought a plane-ticket, waited for the departure time, boarded a plane, and then flew to Hawaii.

So you're thinking more (damage/injuries) happened that we weren't shown?

Yeah, House had no way to know the room would be empty, or that Cuddy's daughter wouldn't have wandered into the room.

On the bright side, there's now a perfectly good reason for Cuddy not to be on the show next season - she GTFO of Jersey and ran for her life!!!

Also, the framing of the episode suggests that [Cuddy] and Wilson were talking to the police/fire department about this incident probably within an hour of it happening.
That's the confusing thing. It's night when the police are there, but it's still well before sunset when House rams the house. I might allow that it was near sunset when House and Wilson drove by Cuddy's (but the shadows and brightness don't suggest that), which could put the police there within an hour.

The bigger problem than how House got away to the beach somewhere is how did he, on foot, manage to avoid the cops? Assume that someone called 911 immediately. Police would respond within fifteen minutes. Hobbling, House might be no more than half a mile from Cuddy's house when the police start screaming into the neighborhood.

No, there's some serious time compression going on. Cuddy goes from a difficult lunch with House to running into the guy her sister wanted to fix her up with to having a dinner party with sister and guy, all in the span of about five hours. (It's clearly all the same day, since Wilson asks House how the lunch with Cuddy was.)

So maybe House going to ground isn't quite so unlikely.

And the fire department and crowd that seemed to be there seemed to be too much for a car crashed into a House and no one being hurt.
There would be some concern over the gas tank as a possible explosive.

Only if they never watched Mythbusters. A fire hazard, yes, but in real life it's very, very, very hard to get gasoline to explode -- which is why car engines need elaborate carburetors or fuel injection systems to make it happen.

Well it's possible that within those 10-15 minutes House could have gotten into a cab or on a bus, even then he'd still probably be as much as an hour away from an airport.

On the time issue, it's a trope in TV that there's rarely a dawn/dusk time period simply because those times of day are narrow and require a lot of timing to shoot for (costing more money.) Even the "real-time" TV series 24 mostly ignored dawn/dusk as it wore on because it's simply too hard to plan and time for so given this it's "possible" that House rammed the house "at dusk"/before nightfall, so probably around 7 PM.

As you said 911 would get there fairly quickly, get the report and then when "Gregg House" is named he'd go on a "watch" list all probably before he'd even pull up to the terminal in a cab or on a bus.

There would be some concern over the gas tank as a possible explosive.
In "TV land" yes. In the real world, not so much. As Christopher above me said there'd be almost no danger of the ruptured fuel tank exploding, probably not much danger of it even being damaged for that matter, all the authorities would have to do is simply pull the car out of the house and then hang a tarp or something to "secure" the hole.

Hmm... maybe the way they'll deal with the loss of cast members is just to have House start all over again somewhere else and assemble a new team. Then again, nahh -- even aside from the legal complications he can't dodge, it would be too expensive to build all new sets.
