Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Man of the House: Factual Error - Immigration officers do not make house calls when doing interviews for those spouses applying for permanent residency permits (green card).
  • Man of the House: Factual Error - The patient (character Joe Reese played by Jake Weber) wears his wedding ring during the MRI. It is unlikely that House's staff would have allowed this as it could interfere with the results and be magnetically sensitive.
  • Everybody Dies: The climax of the finale, is an homage to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's {The Final Problem}. In which Sherlock Holmes dies, only to find out he faked his own death.
  • Transplant: Cotinuity Error - When House enters the visiting room in the prison with Foreman, the computer clearly has the lid opened. When the camera changes angle to see Foreman's view, the computer is shut.
  • The Confession: Wilson tells Foreman to punch him in the liver if he ever mentions something about wanting kids. Wilson had part of his liver removed in episode 6.9 House M.D.: [Wilson] to save a patient.
  • Everybody Dies: When Taub asks House how he can possibly be in a good mood in the face of Wilson's impending death and House's legal problems, House replies, "did you never see Dead Poets Society? Carpe Diem!" Series star Robert Sean Leonard, who plays Wilson, also starred in Dead Poets Society (in which Leonard's character does die toward the end).
  • Perils of Paranoia: Revealing Mistake - In the elevator when Foreman presses a floor button, another corresponding floor button should have lit up in the visible button panel on the opposite wall of the elevator cabin.
  • [?] Patrick Stump, singer of [?] Fall Out Boy, is in episode 17 of season 8. He plays Micah.
  • The Confession: House refers to Taub's arrangements with his daughter as a {Love Shack}. Referencing The B-52's song of the same name.
  • We Need the Eggs: Continuity Error - During the conversation in which Dr Adams confronts Henry on the woman he modeled his doll after, his eyes are initially colored normally, before suddenly becoming jaundiced (yellow) in the next shot, as they would be given his liver failure.
  • Risky Business: Factual Error - House tries to capitalize on returning the CEO to work, i.e. House expects the stock to go up after he heals him. In that case, he should have bought 'call options', not 'put options'. He could have written (sold short) put options, but no broker would allow that on margin since options already are a way to create leverage.
  • Man of the House: Character Error - House mentions that Dominika made a trip to Bosnia. Her character is from the Ukraine, and not yet being a legal permanent resident alien, if she had gone outside of the country, she would not have been allowed back in, and her application would have had to be started again from the very beginning. Being outside of the U.S. it would take about one to two years for her to have been able to return to the country.
  • In ["Blowing the Whistle"] (Season 8, Episode 15) House is playing Call of Duty with Taub and House's gamer tag name is Occams Chainsaw. It's a play on Occam's razor theory which says "Among competing hypotheses, the one with the fewest assumptions should be selected", thus showing House's doctoral personality being based on the Occam's razor theory.
  • Twenty Vicodin: Factual Error - Mendelson is seen wearing a gold ring on his hand. Prisoners aren't allowed to have any jewelry of any kind and it is kept until their release.
