House MD Season 4 Episode 7 Recap Rerun


Watch and Download the Full Episode of House MD

Why is House showing reruns already?

This was a pretty interesting episode of House MD, where they sort of spoofed the program by having a "reality show" being filmed during the episode. Some quips such as House saying that they are walking because it gives the illusion that the story is moving forward were really funny.

Again, I had the Girl Scouts arrangement that caused me to miss a significant portion of the show. The camera crew is there for a kid with a screwed up face, and Cuddy informs House that the show is funding the treatment of the kid. Throughout the episode, House continually attempts to ditch the camera crew. Such as when he takes the team into the MRI room. He tells Cuddy that in front of cameras, people act, and sometimes they just act weird.

House tells the kid, who looks like the elephant man that if he was in the wild, his parents would have eaten him, after saying, "wow1 You're really ugly." Elephant man says, "I have a deformity," and House replies, "I know. That's what makes you ugly." House says that having surgery "will only change your face, it won't change what your face made you."

Taub reveals that he had an affair with a nurse after House badgers him on camera, revealing a lot of potentially embarrassing information.

They think elephant man is going to be okay to get plastic surgery, but then House notices something and demands that they cancel the surgery. He says that something is wrong with his diagnosis. Elephant man's finger won't move.

Taub accuses House. He says "you're not normal, so you don't want other people to be normal either." They pull the wires out of elephant man, and nothing changes. He says he's fine. Elephant man and his dad seem very happy that he can have the surgery, but House seems to believe that there is still something wrong and the surgery should not still go forward.

Thirteen seems to agree that if House thinks something is wrong, then something will go wrong during the operation. Then Thirteen notices something about the pictures of elephant man. She asks how long ago they were taken, and Chase tells her they were taken 3 weeks ago. She bursts in on House and Wilson and tells him that it's Lyme disease. As they are shaving elephant man's head, you can see that there is a rash on his head, which seems to confirm to House that Thirteen was right.

House is deciding who he will keep on board and who he will fire. First is Taub. He keeps him "because he's interesting. Then he fires some attractive woman, who's name I missed. Then he asks her out. House and Cuddy review the tape of the reality show. It seems to depict Him as a brilliant doctor and savior. Elephant man thanks Dr. House, now that he is much more normal looking. House quips that he doesn't know if he can ever trust Michael Moore movies ever again. Lol.

Next week on House in an actual NEW episode, Wilson takes House on a road trip to go to his father's funeral.

Do you think that Wilson will be phased out of the show? And, without Wilson, will the show be the same?

Interesting question, Jim. I was wondering what they are going to do with Wilson myself. He was pretty adamant about not wanting anything to do with House a few episodes ago, but they may be reigning him back in from what I've seen of next week's episode. House and Wilson will be spending some time together, and that may lead to some sort of conclusion to what has happened. Or it could be a nail in the coffin. What will happen with Wilson is certainly a point of intrigue with the show.

this episode is not from season 5. it's from past a episode.

As a fan, I hope that Wilson sticks around. The relationship between House and Wilson is one of my favorites.
It did seem to me that the PI that has been hanging around with House may be a replacement, but that relationship lacks the chemistry that House shared with Wilson.
