House, M.D. mistake picture

Informed Consent - S3-E3

Continuity mistake: House is about to inject Ezra Powell (Joel Grey) with what is supposedly a lethal dose of morphine. In the shots where they pan out to show House addressing the room at large, the syringe is very full, almost completely. When they zoom in on House holding the syringe, it is only filled a fraction of that much - maybe a quarter to a third. This doesn't happen just once, but every time they switch between shots.

One Day, One Room - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: In the scene where House is in Wilson's Office and House needs advice about what to tell the rape victim, when the shots change between lines, the direction of the cane's handle changes with the shots.

Airborne - S3-E18

Continuity mistake: When Wilson and the team are walking and stop in front of Fran's room, you can see Robin lounging in a chair in the background. In the next shot, Robin is gone.

Act Your Age - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: In the last scene where Wilson is in House's office talking about Cuddy, the tennis ball on House's desk continuously changes position between shots.

Act Your Age - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: When Cameron apologizes to Chase at the coffee machine, Chase's hair goes from in and out of his left eye between shots without him touching it.

Kids - S1-E19

Factual error: When House is looking over his whiteboard of symptoms for the swimming patient, the symptom "Intercranial Hemorrhage" is shown on the board. However, this is an error. The correct term is "Intracranial Hemorrhage." Anything inside the head is referred to as "intra" not "inter." This is a common mistake for laypeople, however the highly trained and knowledgeable Dr. House should not have made that error. (00:31:25)

Fidelity (aka: Truth or Consequences) - S1-E7

House: As long as you're trying to be good, you can do whatever you want.
Dr. Wilson: And as long as you're not trying, you can say whatever you want.
House: So between us, we can do whatever we want. We can rule the world!

Trivia: Hugh Laurie auditioned for the role as Dr. Gregory House in his hotel room bathroom in Namibia. He was rehearsing his role for the film The Flight of the Phoenix and claimed that the bathroom was the only place with enough light. He also apologized for his appearance on tape before the audition as he'd just come back from filming. The fact that House has a somewhat scruffy and unkempt look, particularly his constant five o'clock shadow, has been attributed by creator David Shore to Laurie's appearance in this audition tape.
