LOLHouse: Season 5, Episode 6

So I'm ridiculously behind on LOLHouse but am determined to catch up before Tuesday night, starting with Episode 6, the one that I've calmly subtitled "HOLY EFFING SHIT HOUSE AND CUDDY RUB TONGUES".

This week's Adventure in Misdiagnosis involved a guy who lost huge chunks of time because he'd effectively fall asleep but somehow could still drive a car, work as a product tester, and occasionally buy drugs. No shit, he sleep-scored some cocaine which led House to direct his team to procure their own blow (after breaking into the patient's house, of course). Within the first thirty minutes, Taub n' Thirteen had committed two felonies and I started to wish I'd gone to med school.

Anyway in keeping with the grand tradition of this season, the Patient of the Week (tPOW)was largely ignored in favor of other plot points involving Cuddy's uterus. He and his freaky emotionless kid were eventually diagnosed with Familial Mediterranean Fever, a conclusion that seemed to have been extracted from House's ass. Somehow he figured out that tPOW and Li'l tPOW were really of middle eastern descent but had spent the last ten years pretending to be white, just like Will Smith.

The other forty five minutes of this ep were devoted to Cuddy's quest for a baby. She meets Becca, the mom-to-be who couldn't have been more white trash if she farted cheeto dust or married Kevin Federline. Before they've even finished chatting about baby names or past drug use, Cuddy notices that Becca has the kind of creeping rash that requires her to be hospitalized against her will. After several tense ultrasound scenes, the baby has to be delivered by C-Section which means that Becca will earn fewer tips if she ever returns to dancing at the Gutterballz Strip Club N' Bowling Alley. Eventually she decides to keep the baby, leaving Cuddy with a newly painted nursery but the same echo in her womb.

Enter House who swings by her place to either console or mock her--and does a little of both--before they end up mashing faces long enough to get several camera angles. Then he leaves, perhaps spooked by the audible squeals from the entire viewing audience.

Obviously this is something that will be addressed--or tapdanced around--for the rest of the season and honestly, I'm not sure how I feel about a potential House/Cuddy pairing. The fumbling sexual tension seasoned with a dash of animosity has carried us through five seasons and I don't know whether to fear change or embrace it. What do you guys think?

I also don't know whether it's funny or creepy that I spent an entire afternoon trying to Photoshop my own face beside Hugh Laurie's open mouth.

House is such a playa.

Nothing says FanGirly Bliss like copious amounts of exclamation points peppered with 1's. ZOMG!!!11!!!!

Not sure how I feel about the House/Cuddy pairing either. I mean...the Long-Expected Hook Up had to come eventually (unlike other favourite shows I could mention *cough*Law and Order SVU*cough*please Olivia and Elliot fucking make out already*cough*) but I don't know if they're going to be as good a couple as, say, you and House.

By the way, I'm deeply disappointed that you didn't show said attempts to Photoshop your face next to House's. Shame on you.

Well, that was fun, I'm off to fail a couple of tests today. Every little girl's college dream, right after getting drunk and molested at a frat party...

I CAN'T BELIEVE I MISSED THIS EPISODE.

Granted, I've actually missed all of the episodes from the past two years, but I CAN'T BELIEVE I MISSED THIS ONE.

Although, to be real, I'm still holding out for the House/Wilson make-out sesh. Call me when that happens.

p.s. They would be reeeeedic as a couple. House and Cuddy, I mean. House and Wilson would be perfect. Obvi.

I'll forgive you because you're so freakin' funny - but no more Will Smith bashing or you'll be deleted from my favorites!

Josh said...

AMAZING recap!

Andy said...

Do you officially hate Cuddy now? I keep confusing her as a former girlfriend of Zack Morris, when that was that lady from King of Queens.

X-Country2 said...

Ha! The "KTHXBAI" is handsdown the best part.

Beth said...

Have I told you lately that I love you for LOLHouse?

Tricia said...

Thanks! :) I missed this episode - just as it was coming on my power went out and I SCREAMED I was so frustrated. Power was out for 4 hours and I totally missed all TV that night.

stef said...

fo' realz? i have no idea how i found your blog. but after i saw lolhouse a few episodes ago, i was hooked. after seeing this episode with house/cuddy pairing (not sure how i feel about it either), i was anxiously awaiting your lolhouse.

and no, it's not sad OR pathetic that you photoshopped your face over cuddy's.

was anyone else of the opinion that this kiss WAY kicked the hugh laurie/sela ward kiss's ass?

SouthernBelle said...

jen said...

House + Cuddy = pretty damn hot. BUT the question remains, is it as hot as Bones + Booth? Hmmm.

Merry said...

Thank you! This is MUCH better than House this season. I'm hooked on LOLHouse :)

Essentially Me said...

Samantha Grace said...

Heinous said...

I totally could have seen you in that scene. But you weren't. Back to photoshop with you.

Two Left Feet said...

WTF!?!?! i missed this episode. i've got that queezy but excited roller coaster feeling in my stomach that is both fear and approval.

Sandi said...

"Uz means Iz Morman"!

Braja said...

Erin said...

a) 8 days post original showing, you can view HOUSE on Hulu.com . . . over and over and over for free.

b) I still insist Lisa E. is miscast as the CEO or whatever she is on this show. And, her wardrobe is rediculous for her position.

And, if it will make you feel better . . . Hugh probably really loves you and is only swappin' spit with Lisa so he can save up to buy you a really excellent house on the beach

You've solved my (somewhat existential) inner trauma over the House/Cuddy tongue-embrace. I owe you a Hug(h)e thanks.

See, I only just began watching it recently, and while there is much shame coupled with admitting to the brevity of my acquaintance with the show, there is also such a wealth of curiosity regarding the experience of those who have watched from the beginning (particularly in regards to what seemed to be an ongoing House/Cuddy subtle interaction), and you've (sorta) answered it for me.

My liege.

*jAcLyN* said...

I can't decide what I think about the potential relationship either! I kinda want them to get together because I think it would be interesting to see how House would react to being in an actual relationship. However, the thought of them being together and seeing them act like a couple makes me want to puke a little.

Mike said...

I have recently developed an addiction to House.

You may thank Miss Shaba from 20SB for directing me here. I'm liking what I read, please keep it up; my Google Reader neeeeeeds it.

rowan said...
