House M.D. 3×22 “Resignation” and Fandom leads to hazardous driving practices. Lawd.

Firstly, if you were driving on I-40 yesterday around 11:40ish in the morning and saw a slightly erratic Corolla and thought, “I wish I could punch that motherfucker,” I APOLOGIZE SINCERELY because I was definitely choking I was laughing so God damn hard I was sort of blind. Because when you’re listening to God damn Gym Class Heroes singing “Cupid’s Chokehold” and mentally vidding to SGA it can only end in tragedy. God, if you haven’t heard this wretched awful song you won’t understand why I am — even now — crapping myself laughing at the thought of this + SGA. COME ON.

THIS IS TOTALLY A LETTER THAT RODNEY WRITES ABOUT JOHN. GOD. I’M SORRY. I’LL GET TO HOUSE IN SECOND, I HAVE TO FALL DOWN AND WEEP LAUGHING SOME MORE NOW. God just — “She even makes me pancakes. And Alka-Seltzer when my tummy aches. If that ain’t love then I don’t know what love is.” — it’s SO JOHN AND RODNEY, ALL RIGHT? Clearly I am going through new episode withdrawal something awful.

And in other news, House last night:

Okay so, I don’t have a bulleted list about this episode, either — largely because I don’t think it hit me very hard one way or the other — the Patient of the Week was sympathetic, to me, but that’s for purely personal circumstances (only children who’ve been through seriously bouts of depression: HILARIOUS). But, here’s what I enjoyed:

(1) Chase being smart and figuring things out;
(2) Foreman wavering, because seriously — his job sucks, but his job also rocks;
(3) House and Wilson dosing each other with pills. Also? The scene where Robert Sean Leonard is trying to give that poor woman a breast exam and TWEAKING? Oh my God. I nearly fell off of the couch I was laughing so hard. It was WRONG. And yet AMAZING. I love that I never worry, really, about House bullying Wilson, because Wilson will do something shitty right back; it’s only when Wilson lays down and TAKES IT that I start getting freaked out PTSD flashbacks to Those Episodes Of Which We Do Not Speak.
(4) I LOVED Cuddy’s sentiment at the end — there are worse things to be than Greg House.
(5) Okay, who is not surprised that I don’t like Honey and hate where this is going? COME ON GUYS. YOU HAVE AN AWESOME WOMAN RIGHT THERE — HER NAME IS LISA CUDDY. And she is going to make babies with Wilson AND House. COME ON.

All in all? Good episode, some pretty stellar lines — will probably spend the rest of this season and the next wincing in agony over House dating somebody named after bee spit.

And also? Wilson’s “something personal”? Totally big gay Wilson. Who else is with me on this?

    The cynical part of me is saying that FOX will never, ever, ever allow the House folks to run with a Big Gay Wilson storyline. On the other hand, I can *smell* the HoYay. War!

    I wouldn’t worry, if I were you. I strongly suspect that Honey won’t be around for next season.

    MTV was playing this song, like, 10 minutes ago and I totally didn’t make the connection to SGA. But clearly, you WIN!

    “She’s got the cutest laugh I ever heard”

    *dies laughing*

    You know there’s another version of that video, right?

    One word:


    Two words:

    Crazy lovebot.

    You know…on the Foreman note… When I heard Cuddy say that I thought to myself, “But Foreman isn’t the one who is becoming House- Chase is.”

    Cause…he is.

    I don’t hate Honey, but I don’t think she’s going to stick around long.

    I did, however, love the vicodin in the coffee bit. I was laughing my ass off at that.
