Cast / crew
Patient-of-the-week is a genius now living a happy life of deliveryman obscurity. Our own genius-in-residence decides that it is time for Cuddy and Lucas to break up.
There’s lots of quality, but fun, machinations this week as House tries to break up Lucas and Cuddy (though Taub and Chase have their moments as well) and, as a bonus, the medical mysteries are also clearly enough presented with the final solution being pretty cool while raising an interesting side issue as a genius medically makes himself more stupid so as to be content with a normal life with his wife. (It reminds me of the classic line from James Stewart in Harvey: " ‘In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.’ Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant.") Oh, and we even get some clinic duty.
This House M.D. episode contains mild unpleasant medical scenes.
