LIFE IMITATES ART ON THE "HOUSE" SEASON FINALE
MONDAY, MAY 23, ON FOX
Shohreh Aghdashloo ("24") Guest-Stars
Well-known performance artist Afsoun Hamidi (guest star Aghdashloo) is admitted to the hospital, but when the team learns that her symptoms may have been self-inflicted as part of a documentary for her latest performance piece, they begin to question whether treatments are necessary and if they are unwittingly participating in the creation of a piece of her art. Meanwhile, a situation prompts House to do something that could change his relationship with Cuddy and Wilson permanently in the all-new "Moving On" season finale episode of HOUSE airing Monday, May 23 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (HOU-723) (TV-14 D, L)
- Probably the day after House's emergency surgery in the last episode.
- Patient of the Week
- Afsoun Hamidi, a performance artist profiled recently in the New Yorker Magazine collapses at the beginning of one of her artistic endeavors.
- How House gets involved:
- He is in bed in the hospital after surgery with the case and his team with the patient's file. No indication of who brought it.
- The privacy invasion / ethical breach / Rule Breaking
- House attacks Cuddy violently and dangerously and hurts Wilson in the commission of the crime.
- Preliminary diagnoses:
- The patient turns out to already have been diagnosed with primary CNS lymphoma with paraneoplastic syndrome which is fatal and dares House to discover what she has as a game that she will use as performance art and he can use as a puzzle to stop him thinking about other things. He figures out what she has and wins the game but later decides the previous doctors were wrong and so was he.
- The final diagnosis
- Wegener's granulomatosis which is treatable with radiation which the patient at first doesn't want to take.
- Who Came up with final diagnosis
- House when he saw her rash which other doctors thought was eczema from the original artistic set up.
- Clinic Patients
- Additional Information:
- Taub's ex-wife and new young girlfriend are both pregnant.
- House has left the state and maybe the country to something that looks like the South Seas of the Pacific. Could be Hawaii but more likely a different country.
House (Hugh Laurie), still recovering from a procedure, and the team (L-R: Olivia Wilde, Jesse Spencer, Peter Jacobson and Omar Epps) treat a well-known performance artist in the "Moving On" season finale episode of HOUSE airing Monday, May 23 (8-9 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

- Quotes, Quotations, Dialogue, Scenes:
- While in the hospital bed, House sends for Cuddy and gives her back things she left in his apartment telling her, "I want things to go back to the way they were before we started dating. No more bad feelings, no more issues, just work...."
"I haven't even spoken to you since you hurt yourself."
"I was self-desctructive. It won't happen again. I'm making changes. I'm going to stop doing stupid things."
"Great. The smart thing to do would be to talk about why you did it. If you don't---"
House interrupts her. "I think I can avoid putting another hole in my leg without talking about my mother."
"Well, I don't want to find out you're wrong by getting another phone call from you in a bloody bathtub."
"I'm a big believer that the best way to get pas the past is to shoot it in the head, bury it in a deep pit and pour lye on it."
"I'm just asking to talk." House agrees but postpones it and is with his patient and then moves hospital beds when she shows up at the appointed time.
- Later he has a confrontation with Wilson who complains, "You're forging my name on prescriptions again."
"No." Wilson obviously doesn't believe him so he explains, "What you just said implies I stopped at some point."
"Twenty minutes ago I put a notice out to all local pharmacies to require verbal authorization before filling my prescriptions."
"You have any idea how much extra work you've just given yourself? You're not going to last a week."
"Your liver, your hearing. Never mind the fact that each script you write is a separate felony. You will serve time. So could I.... The amount you're taking has nothing to do with physical pain."
"Okay. Maybe I am trying to medicate myself. I'm trying to change; trying to stop being self-destructive."
"So, you can only handle not being self-destructing by being self-destructive?"
"What do you want from me?"
"I don't know, House. But I'm worried. You're miserable and you're angry and I want you to actually deal with that and not just try to medicate the issue away."
"No. You know what I feel right now. I don't feel miserable or angry. I don't feel good or bad. I feel nothing. Which feels great."
- Both Cuddy and Wilson will regret encouraging House to express his true feelings.
