Ep3-12: One Day, One Room
This one is all about who you're stuck in a room with. House treats a girl who was raped... Not something he's very good at. There's nothing to treat, nothing to solve. But she wants to talk to him.
And the funny parts:
Guy running in a circle. What is it? Headache… Something burst... Sore ear... Nope, it's a cockroach! Ha, nice start to an episode. Straight into the clever House comments and attempts to avoid work. Then he runs off the park...
Cuddy turns the clinic into a game. $10 every time he treats someone without touching them. $10 to Cuddy every time he does touch someone. Well, at least it got House's interest. He's off and rolling... until he opens the door and sees a beautiful woman sitting on the bench. Hmm... $10 to Cuddy.
There are some very good scenes with House and the rape victim.
Hiccough guy wants a treatment...
House offered $50 to a father and son to leave, and he grabs them when they try to come back. The boy swallowed a magnet, and as he's eight years old:
House: Darwin says let him die.The magnet is preventing imaging, so it needs to be cut out. House thinks for a bit, and then grabs a scalpel. What’s House doing? Surgery in the hallway... Threatening a boy with a knife... Nope, its metal, sticks to the magnet, and shows House the magnet is well into the intestinal tract.
Wilson and House discuss the rape victim. House doesn't know how to answer her questions. And poor old Wilson is tricked into trying to convince House to tell her the truth.
Wilson: It's a simple question. Has your life sucked? Tell her the truth. Tell her you were shot. Tell her...In the park:
House: She doesn't wanna hear the truth. She's looking for something. Looking to extrapolate something...
Wilson: She's looking to connect with you, and that's what's scaring the hell out of you. Tell her the truth.
House: There is no truth.
Wilson: Are we role-playing? Am I you? I don't wanna be you.
House: Know why I come here? I sit, I watch, I imagine.House can't resist drawing Wilson into his story while they're playing Foosball. House concentrates on the game, while Wilson looks up, interested in what House is saying... and House scores!
Eve: Sounds nice.
House: Imagine if one of them would break a leg.
House: Just one false step. One crack in the sidewalk.
Eve: You don't really.
House: I'm evil.
Eve: Evil people don't say they're evil.
House: Sounds like an easy loophole.
A very stirring episode, with some excellent funny bits to break up the drama.
