H: Would you do surgery on your mother?
AG: No. I wouldn’t be able to make an abstract diagnosis.
H: Then why do you want to treat your patients like family?
This was supposed to be a foreshadowing of House's inability to treat Mark because Stacy...just one more thing the show fucked up.
AT LAST! IT'S FINISHED! WOO-HOO!
Day 30 - Anything House related
Right now I would like to drag David Shore, Katie Jacobs and John C. Kelley to a secluded place, tie them up, and say, "Write your way out of THAT, assholes!"
Before I do that, I would force them to release all of the gag reels, blooper reels, outtakes, and that very special footage of House and Wilson making out that was cut from S4 right before Wilson hooked up with Amber.
Also the very special footage of House and Wilson making out after Wilson gives House the organ.
Also the very special footage of House and Wilson making out because...well, just because.
Also the very special footage of House and Cuddy making out when they're in the car in "5 to 9".
Also the very special footage of House and Cuddy making out after the party in "Known Knowns".
Also the naked pictures of HL in his dressing room from the hidden security cameras.
And then I would give Hugh Laurie a plane ticket back to England, so he can resume making good television.
And then I would tearfully wave good-bye to Robert Sean Leonard as he beats a hasty retreat to NY, yelling, "Free at last! Free at last!"
And then I would give Omar Epps his own show. And Lisa Edelstein her own show. They would have to sign contracts not to do anything medical-related, but I still want them to keep working. P-Jac will find work soon enough.
And then I would strip Jesse Spencer naked and make him play Schumann on the violin as foreplay. (It would only have to be the one time.)
And then I'd bring back Cameron...oops. No more show.
Have I left anyone out? 13's already gone. As is Doris Egan.
( Meme for the ganking...I'm DONE. )
Then I thought, why bother? It's not like I'm writing anything slanderous about a real person, or going to make any money off this project, and TPTB know it. So why waste my time? I would use them for real person macros, but maybe not. It's not as if they're pretending to be real pics; mostly screencaps with words added. (Butthead's voice: "Wuuurrds.") If TPTB's various low-level minions have time to read fanfiction (and I doubt they do), they have other things to worry about. Like keeping the cast members' lives private, keeping any unlawful activity out of the news, any incriminating photos out of the tabloids, etc. etc. Maybe that's why they no longer do gag reels. Do they think it lowers the tone of the room?
ANYWAY, that's also a topic for another time. I'm wondering how other fanfic writers feel about disclaimers: annoyed? Indifferent? Anything?
I’m not a doctor, but I play one on TV. Part of one. We might have met before, shortly after the Season 6 finale.
I’m House’s damaged, always-in-agonizing-pain-until-the-
God DAMN, last season was a bitch, because I had a HUGE CHUNK OF MUSCLE, FAT, BLOOD VESSELS AND NERVES REMOVED! AND I HAD TO PRETEND IT NEVER HAPPENED!
Remember when House was a show about a brilliant, tortured genius with no people skills but a lot of snark? Remember when he was the title character who actually solved the medical mysteries and did nine-tenths of the interesting stuff? Remember when he was a suffering addict? Remember when entire episodes revolved around House?
Ah, those days are gone, it would appear. Episodes like "Wilson" and "Cuddy" are long overdue. But between times, House is now taking a back seat to...13. And not even because of Foreman. Since when was anyone except House the uber-healer? Foreman is now the team leader, whatever that means, so who is House? Who needs him, really? Especially when he's busy being the comedy B-plot. "Remorse" had an inverse House/13 ratio, and it wasn't pleasant to watch.
13 has become the super-doctor, the one who solves medical mysteries, the fearless adventuress who can buy drugs/tail drug dealers/realistically pretend she's a hooker/is dying of Huntington's (but apparently not this season). It is frequently pointed out what a great doctor she is.
The only thing she cannot do...is act. However, that is more than made up for her "hotness", which is pointed out in every episode (except this one, because the patient was "super-hot"). I don't care if Olivia Wilde is incredibly funny off-camera, a great human being, shit, I don't care if she's a combination of Gandhi and Lenny Bruce. When she's on camera, her personality evaporates.
Frankly, I think Olivia Wilde would be far better cast in a good sitcom, where her talent for one-liners could be utilized. I can only wring my hands and say, please, please, please TPTB, put her back in the background where she belongs. Foreground anybody else! Particularly HOUSE.
Here's a thought: since every character in the team has killed a patient, perhaps Taub could accidentally murder 13? Pardon me if my mouth waters.
