The medical case didn't have enough screentime to have the impact it should have, but it was interesting and sad. It really suffered being the B-story to a much more pivotal A-story.
I have a friend who was pissed off that the medical story didn't get more play due to it's subject matter

Re: House: 5x04 "Birthmarks" - Discussion and Spoilers

Excellent episode and easily the best of the season thus far. A wonderful and believable ending to the Wilson/House riff and bringing them back together as we all knew would happen. I was a bit surprised by the revelation about House's father, but I liked how the episode made it clear that genetics isn't everything (which it successfully did on several levels). I also loved finally learning how House and Wilson met and just how ridiculous that meeting was (and really, it wouldn't be any other way).

I wasn't all that interested in the Patient of the Week until the very end. What a cruel and terrible situation. Pins shoved into her brain when she was newborn. *shudder*

I couldn't tell, but was that R. Lee Ermey in the coffin or just a body double lookalike?

loved the MMMMbop ringtone

That was funny. And Wilson's is "Dancing Queen"!

I love that some phones have the option for different ringtones for different people. My cousin has "Ding Dong the Witch is Dead" on her phone for whenever her stepmother calls. No need to tell you what their relationship is like...

Having read the thread, I see someone confirmed that it was indeed him. I wasn't sure and my computer had crashed the night before so I couldn't look for a recent photo of him. Very nice touch.

Also, I forgot to mention that I loved seeing Chase and Cameron being part of the differential this week. It reminded me that while I enjoy the new team (particularly Taub), I miss the old trio.

^ I thought that there was some bit of truth to it, but I think that the ending was more powerful. I think the funeral got the ball rolling.
Same. I felt it was a bit genuine too.
