...that or basically what we saw Banner doing in the beginning of the Avengers
"Don't bore me. You wouldn't like me when I'm bored."
I think in the episode where House recounts the story of the janitor/healer he encountered when he was younger was revealed to be a lie of his. Though I could see him working in that capacity.
Earlier this season House managed to acquire a large sum of money through a bout of insider trading which he used to partly fund his department again. It's possible he has enough of this money left over -and access to it inside of an account or form he can still get to considering he's not "himself" anymore- to live the rest of his life relative comfort.
But he certainly wouldn't be living in America anymore where it'd be pretty hard for him to stay under the RADAR in a false identity and if he was smart he'd live in a non-extradition country where if he was found out the authorities couldn't get to him. So if he has a decent sum of money it's possible he could work in some second-world country in relative comfort and, yeah, maybe be the "wise janitor" in a hospital in that country.
But like I said, the overriding survival need for House isn't money or comfort (though those help), but problems to solve. Like Holmes, he's only content when his mind is engaged with a fascinating and intractable problem.
I think they should do a spinoff. "From the people who brought you House M.D. -- it's House, P.I.!" He could move to Hawaii and get an acerbic butler.
He could always replace the janitor on Scrubs.
I'm in agreement with Chris. House needs a mystery to solve, that's what drives him, takes his mind off his leg, gives meaning to his life.
Suicide might be one answer. I remember Sherlock Holmes once said to Watson in 'The Sign of Four', to paraphrase, if you're not doing what you're good at then there is not much point in living.
Good gosh, Hugh Laurie with an epic 'stache and a Hawaiian shirt...
Works for me.
True. I saw the Seinfeld finale a couple weeks ago and I didn't even remember the first part..
I don't think the point of the retrospective was to have people remember it in 10 years. The point was the star was thanking all the cast and crew and giving even the "little people" a moment of public recognition. It was a wrap party that the fans were invited to.
Only just watched it and I thought it was a good (not excellent) end to a pretty much excellent show despite a few ageing problems by the end. I couldn't help but have a smile on my face, House has saved so many lives he deserved to live in the end though my own idea for a series finale always involved House ignoring a illness of his own to cure a patient instead at the cost of his life...
But this will do nicely instead
See ya House, its been a fun 8 years.
Didn't watch. House went downhill a long time ago. Surprised that it lasted as long as it did.
