House Recap: "The Social Contract"

by at . Comments

What a great episode of House.

The patient of the week featured a cool, humorous case of frontal lobe inhibition - which resulted in truth-telling that would make House blush - and was played by a great actor, Jay Karnes (Dutch from The Shield).

Meanwhile, the unique bond between Wilson and House was explored in detail via a storyline that involved Wilson's homeless brother.

Enjoy this detailed recap of "The Social Contract."

Thirteen: It's okay. | permalink
Kutner: And no marriage either if our patient keeps saying everything that comes into his head without regard for the consequences.
Dr. Wilson: (to House) You always led me to believe you were one of a kind. | permalink
House: The MRI show anything?
