House -- "5 to 9" -- 02/08/10

Lisa Edelstein


Synopsis:

Spoiler:
During a day in the life of Princeton Plainsboro's Dean of Medicine, Dr. Lisa Cuddy, the inner workings of the hospital are seen through her eyes. This day proves to be especially trying as Cuddy wrestles with myriad hospital issues and staff disputes that test her perseverance and skills as an administrator, all while juggling issues in her personal life.


In honor of this episode being through the perspective of Lisa Cuddy, the photo this week will be of the beautiful Lisa Edelstein.

Looking forward to seeing this one. BTW, the douche bag Michael Weston guest stars as well.

It being a Cuddy episode, though, his presence is a given.

So Cuddy went to work with a yammy full of joy juice? Also, it would appear someone one in the pharmacy is making meth.

No, the dick's dick wasn't working, so nothing happened.

Oh, OK, I had it backwards on why she was frustrated. Lucas is still a dick, though.

This was a ridiculous day in the life of Cuddy, but still enjoyed her POV w/r/t House's shenanigans. Did laugh at Lucas, the 2-minute wonder.

Always fun to have an outsider's perspective of House's team at work. Also, House works great as a supporting character.

I liked the ep. I LOVE Lisa/Cuddy. I also liked the limited exposure to House's team.

House admitting he wanted to try and cure cancer using malaria to win a $50 bet killed me

If Cuddy ever got her own show, it'd be a drinking game for every time someone called her a "bitch".

I wish I had a shower big enough for a "play area".

Meh. I liked it, but I wouldn't want to see a spin off show with her. It had it's moments.

I didn't think I would enjoy this, but I thought it was one of the better episodes this season. It's always interesting to see one of House's cases from another perspective.

I thought the payoff to the insurance company story was really lame.

The guy offers 8%, and Cuddy turns it down. Then he just comes back with the 12% and says "Okay, call off your dogs." What dogs? Why did the insurance company give in? And Cuddy's "YES!" with the camera pull back was cheesy beyond belief. I think it would have been better if they had found a way for House to offer her some good, useful advice about the situation.

Other than that, I think they should find a way to work Cuddy do yoga into every ep.

This is a BIG picture

I had a question about the thumb dude. When Cuddy tore up the check, was that because she was going to take him to court for the full amount or was she going to write off the whole expense? I wasn't really clear about that.

Earlier she threatened that if he didn't pay, the hospital would take his house.
I think tearing up the check meant that she wasn't going to go after him or take his money.
But that wasn't a satisfactory resolution to that story either.

I didn't care for the episode. I didn't care about Cuddy's problems and the alternate perspective of House's team was done better in Wilson's episode.

Yeah, I love Cuddy, but Wilson's episode was better. I found myself missing "the team" (especially when Chase got into a fight!). Although instead of Cuddy doing yoga, I'd love to see shower scenes in every episode.

Also, am I the only one who doesn't buy the Cuddy/Lucas relationship? It's not that I hate the idea of her in a relationship, but it's just so... weird. It's like they needed to fill the role, and decided to bring Lucas back just because they liked him last season. He doesn't seem like the type of person Cuddy would date at all.

I absolutely hate the Cuddy/Lucas relationship. Lisa E has zero chemistry with Michael Weston and I just get the creeps every time he appears on screen and fondles her.

I liked this episode. The Wilson episode was alot more compelling, but I thought it was an interesting concept to see a full episode to what Cuddy goes through.

^^Yeah I agree I thought the payoff to the Health Insurance storyline sucked considering how hardball Cuddy was with them.

I guess the writers of House want us to support Obamacare.

"Just as long as I stay rich."

Not even subtle.

It was enjoyable seeing her cleavage the whole episode.

Wilson's episode was much much better. This one was ok, but it just didn't feel like I cared about what Cuddy had to deal with.
