House M.D. 5.18 Here Kitty (2009)

House is busy trying to get out of work until a nurse is brought in by Cuddy and she starts having a seizure while explaining her, apparently minor, symptoms. A bored House is about to leave but then someone points out that she has urinated herself (common for a seizure) and that her urine is green. Now that’s interesting. As is a grumpy Taub. But not as interesting as a cat who can predict death.


There’s quite a lot of fun but not a lot of sense. This is an unconvincing episode from House’s character and House’s case-of-the-week though one moment that did work was House’s triumphant summation being punctuated by him having forgotten to cancel the patient’s unnecessary life-threatening brain surgery. Taub’s storyline worked well while the Foreteen storyline seems to have been entirely forgotten. The fun came from an unexpected Bond quote and House going to all the trouble of getting a full-size ladder into his office just for a laugh among other things.
