Trivia

When the Secure Monitoring Courrier arrives at Wilson's office, he asks for Doctor House. House turns to Wilson and asks if he's seen Spartacus. In the 1960 film starring Kirk Douglas, there was a scene where numerous slaves claimed to be Spartacus in order to keep the real Spartacus from being identitified. (Meaning, House wanted Wilson to do the same) See more »

Goofs

When House is lighting a cigar with the $100 bill you can see the bill says "Motion Picture Use Only" where a real bill would say "The United States of America." See more »

Dr. Jessica Adams: It's different for girls.
