    He kinda looks like an anime character.

    But it's interesting, now that we know he wasn't feeling suicidal - Sylvia Plath does tend to mislead people that way - but what was it that 13 seemed to have the revelation about? Unless..... okay, now we're all confused.

    So the kid isn't hermaphroditic?

    Yeah he has that androgynous look.

    House certainly picks some great call girls.

    This has been a good episode so far.

    Not much focus on the POTW as in past/distant-past episodes but certainly a lot of focus on House and little on "Foreteen."

    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.

    My favorite line was "Who needs a medical degree when you have Wi-Fi?"

    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.
