House: Cursed

After a 12 year old boy is convinced he is cursed because a Ouija board revealed to him that he is going to die soon, his father, who just so happens to be major financial supporter of the hospital, makes unbelievable demands of House and his team as they struggle to find a diagnosis for his symptoms, which include a rash and a week long fever. Chase becomes outraged when House invites his father from Australia to help him with his diagnosis. House is shocked to see that Chase and his father are not close at all. After House finally diagnoses him, the boy begins to believe that his father might not be so truthful after all.

Episode Quotes

Dr. Wilson: Even I don't like you.
House: You know, words can hurt.

Dr. Chase: How would you feel if I interfered in your personal life.
House: I'd hate it. That's why I cleverly don't have a personal life

House: Oh, you never run out of thingies...like that blonde thingy you were chatting up.

House: Double-entry bookkeeping?!

Episode Goofs
House: (talking to a Vicodin pill) There you are. Were you scared? It's okay, you're home now. (swallows it)

The problem here is that this episode was originally supposed to air the week after Detox (according to the production numbers), so it makes no sense that House is now beginning to take the medication again because clearly he was taking it in episode that originally aired the week before this one ( Sports Medicine). It's obvious the shows were not show in the correct order.

Cultural References
Tommy: He was a Navy test pilot. Real Top Gun stuff.

This is a reference to the movie Top Gun, where Tom Cruise plays a hot shot pilot.

Episode References
House: (talking to a Vicodin pill) There you are. Were you scared? It's okay, you're home now. (swallows it)

House is referring back to episode 11 Detox in which Cuddy convinces him to stop taking Vicodin for a week.
