Yet another winner of an episode.

House and Stacy almost get down with it, but duty calls.

Who knew Danny Noonan would get treated by House via cell phone? Loved the whole interaction and dissection of the power structure in the diag group.

Excellent episode.

Lipstick on the wall, he had to write it down. Very funny.

Diagnosis by long-distance, does House have telepathy?

Hugh Laurie has amazing chemistry w/ Sela Ward. And his chemistry w/ the rest of the cast is still awesome via telephone.

It was alright, but I think I prefer House in the hospital and Cuddy showing cleavage. The scenes with Foreman tormenting her were pretty good though.

I didn't realize Fred from Roseanne was Danny from Caddyshack.

For some reason, I always remember him as the oldest son from The Great Santini.

Or the ex of Bonnie Raitt.

Good episode as always. I liked how Forman got bent out of shape when Cuddy didn't want to give him the case without House.

I liked how foreman and chase decided to break some rules heh.

I also liked how House stole the ball from the kid.

Great episode.

A little OT

Did anyone catch the interview with Hugh Laurie on the Ellen show. He looked like he just walked off the "House" set but I couldn't believe how different he is in real life than Dr. House. He was such an english dandy boy it wasn't funny. Just goes to show he is a great actor if nothing else.

Is it just me or does the world really stop when Sela Ward smiles?

I was just watching some Blackadder Goes Forth yesterday. It really is odd seeing him as the gruff House after watching the daffy George.

Yep, in most of his Brit roles before House he's been extremely silly, and usually a bit fem... espcially when teamed up with creative partner Stephen Fry... Check out their two TV series together if you're a fan... (A Bit of Fry & Laurie, and Jeeves & Wooster)...

I was actually really shocked when House became a hit and I saw him in it... thinking to myself: Jeez, Hugh got butch all of a sudden... But it's a great character.

Ditto for seeing him in the Stuart Little movies as the dad. He seems to do a great job in everything.

Didn't he also play the titular character (I said titular, heh heh) in Bo Derek's Tarzan, the Ape Man?

House's choice of reading material in the airport was great as well: Classic Lesbian Prison Stories.

Did I miss a scene? I thought they just cut to him on the phone while holding the ball? How did he get it?

A little bit after the kid is throwing the ball at the chair, we see House on the phone and the kid looking under the chair for his ball. Just after that, you see House playing with the ball. It didn't show him actually stealing it...

Haven't seen him on Ellen, but i thought he was very funny, when he appeared on Leno. I definitely saw some of House in him.

New fan of House here, catching up with it on DVD. I thought I'd bump this two-and-a-half-year-old thread to ask a very important uestion:

WHO THE HELL TAKES A PLANE FROM BALTMORE TO PRINCETON!?!?!! Can you even take a commercial flight into Princeton? Seriously -- it's a two-hour drive. They probably spent more time going through the metal detectors than it would have taken them to drive.

That issue aside, it's a great show. I'm sorry I waited this long to start watching it.
