In fact, he's so intrigued that he breaks his own self-imposed rule and tries to talk to the woman at her home--where her 15-year-old son Luke (Aaron Himelstein) seems to know a lot more than he's saying. Elsewhere, Chase (Jesse Spencer) has serious issues with his past. This episode affords a rare opportunity to hear Hugh Laurie speak in his authentic British accent. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide House: Occam's Razor After calling in sick at work, 22-year-old college student Brandon (Kevin Zegers) spends the morning having wild sex with his fiancee--and then lapses into unconsciousness. It's obvious to Dr. House (Hugh Laurie) that Brandon wasn't lying about being sick, but his symptoms are mysterious and contradictory--and worse, they keep multiplying. As he tries to figure out this puzzle, House saves time by treating all of his other patients in a record five minutes. All in all, not a bad day's work for the clinic's most obstreperous doctor, even though House is taken down a peg or two by his supervisor Dr. Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein), who sharkishly informs him that he will never get her goat no matter how hard he tries! ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide House: Pilot The alternate title for this pilot episode of House is "Everybody Lies", which neatly sums up the philosophy of the brilliant but thoroughly obnoxious Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie), infectious disease and nephrology specialist at Princton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital. Convinced that none of his patients will ever tell him the truth, House responds in kind by refusing to talk to them beyond the bare necessities--and he certainly wastes no time being friendly, comforting or supportive. Right now, House's patented indifference is being directed at 29-year-old kindergarten teacher Rebecca Adler (Robin Tunney), who for no discernible reason has begun suffering seizures and speaking gibberish. With no one else able to figure out what's happening to Rebecca, House dismisses it as a brain tumor. It turns out that he's wrong--and also that he'll spend a lot more time than he'd originally intended trying to save Rebecca's life, and to ascertain the real cause for her behavior (which, as often happens in this series,turns out to be a malady that no one could possibly have anticipated). But though House emerges as the hero of the piece, he remains his old gloriously repulsive self. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide House: Paternity Suffering from double vision and horrible nightmares, 16-year-old Dan (Scott Mechlowitz) traces the source of his problem to injuries sustained during a Lacrosse match. As usual, Dr. House (Hugh Laurie) has other ideas, first diagnosing Dan with MS, and then declaring that the boy is being sexually abused. By the time House has figured out the real reason (maybe!) and has scheduled Dan for brain surgery, the boy disappears from the clinic--and the chase is on. Elsewhere, House is annoyed by a ditzy mom (Kylee Cochran) who refuses to let her baby be vaccinated, and by a patient (Alex Skuby) with an ugly abscess in his knee who is threatening to sue everyone within earshot. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide House: Maternity After checking on two neonatal infants who have suffered mysterious seizures, House (Hugh Laurie) concludes that the clinic has become the breeding ground for a deadly epidemic--which is rapidly spreading to the other newborns. In order to isolate the reason for this outbreak and to stop it in its tracks, House is faced with a difficult choice: One of the babies will have to die to save the others. As it turns out, the source of the epidemic has little to do with babies, but neither House nor the audience finds this out until the very last moment. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide House: Fidelity 31-year-old Elyce Snow (Myndy Crist) sleeps eighteen hours a day, and is impossible to get along with the other six hours. House (Hugh Laurie) thinks it might be depression, but it isn't, nor is it rabbit fever (his second choice). Finally, House diagnoses African Sleeping Sickness--and since neither Elyce nor her husband Ed (Dominic Purcell) has ever been to Africa, the only other possibility is that one of them has been unfaithful. But neither husband nor wife will fess up...not even if their silence results in her quick demise! ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide House: Damned if You Do It's Christmas time in the clinic, but there's no occasion for joy when Sister Mary Augustine is brought, apparently suffering from stigmata. Figuring that it is nothing more than an allergy, House treats the nun accordingly--and as a result she nearly suffocates. As the other nuns set up a prayer vigil (much to House's annoyance), the clues to solving this medical mystery are painstakingly pieced together, leading unexpectedly to an incident in the Sister's distant past. Elsewhere, a man in a Santa suit (Dakin Matthews) is suffering from an inflamed bowel, which can only be cured by smoking cigarettes. Ho ho ho! ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide House: Detox House (Hugh Laurie) looks into the case of sixteen-year-old Keith Foster (Nicholas D'Agosto), who has been bleeding uncontrollably ever since he was involved in a car crash. Unless House can interpret the contradictory symptoms, it's a safe bet that Keith will never see seventeen. While all this is unfolding, House is doing his damnedest to stay off his precious Vicodin for a whole month, determined to prove to Dr. Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) that he's not addicted to the stuff--and as result, his judgment is clouded to the point that young Keith may be in more danger than before! ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide House: MOB Rules A typically truculent House (Hugh Laurie) is slapped with a court order instructing him to determine if mobster Joey Arnello (Joseph Lyle Taylor), who is slated to give testimony in Federal Court before entering the Witness Protection Program, is faking a serious illness. Joey's knuckle-busting brother Bill (Danny Nucci) warns House to lay off the case--but not for the (seemingly) obvious reasons. At the same time, Vogler (Chi McBride) puts extra pressure on Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) to fire House, or risk losing a $100 million donation. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide House: Kids At the height of a meningitis outbreak, House (Hugh Laurie) must figure out how to properly treat a 12-year-old girl (Skye McCole Bartusiak) who has all the symptoms of the disease, but not the disease itself. Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) insists that House has no time for individual treatment of any patient, but that doesn't stop him from taking stabs at several diagnoses--each one more inaccurate than the last, and all because the girl won't tell him the whole truth. Meanwhile, Cuddy seeks a replacement for the departed Cameron (Jennifer Morrison), but the prospects are a pathetic lot indeed. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide House: Control Chi McBride makes his first series appearance as billionaire entrepreneur Edward Vogler, the new chairman of the board at Princeton-Plainsboro. Assuming that his position gives him license to call all the shots, Vogler wastes no time throwing his weight around--beginning with his promise to donate $100 million to the clinic on the condition that Dr. House (Hugh Laurie) is fired immediately! Things don't get any better for House when he is forced to resort to subterfuge to provide proper treatment for 32-year-old cosmetics CEO Carly Fontano (Sarah Chalke), who for no apparent reason has suddenly become paralyzed. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide House: Heavy Vogler (Chi McBride) cuts a deal with Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein), agreeing to postpone the dismissal of Dr. House (Hugh Laurie). But there's a price to pay for this concession: House must immediately fire one member of his team. As tension mounts among House's coworkers, they still find time to look into the case of an obese 10-year-old (Jennifer Simms) who has suffered a heart attack--but not because of her extra poundage. Another overweight patient (Lucille Hernandez) lies to both House and her husband regarding what may be a malignant tumor...or a unborn child. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide House: Role Model Faced with the choice of firing one of his team or losing his own job, House (Hugh Laurie) is given a way out by Vogler (Chi McBride). If he will give a speech on behalf of a new drug developed by Vogler's pharamaceutical firm, House will be completely off the hook. The upshot of all this only serves to deepen the animosity between House and Vogler--but in the meantime, the doctor must tend to the business at hand, including a senator (Joe Morton) with presidential aspirations who is diagnosed with AIDS, and a young woman (Missy Crider) who insists that she can't have suffered a miscarriage because she hasn't had sex in over a year. As expected, both of these patients will soon develop a whole set of confusing and contradictory symptoms...but no one expects the startling turn of events at episode's end! ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide House: Babies and Bathwater Already irked by the resignation of Cameron (Jennifer Morrison), House (Hugh Laurie) must also endure the persecution of board chairman Vogler (Chi McBride), who demands that House be fired immediately or the clinic will lose his $100 million donation. At long last, Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) takes a stand against the tyrannical Vogler--but will she regret her rash behavior? Meanwhile, House and his team deal with such patients as a 39-year-old pregnant woman (Marin Hinkle) who must choose between choking to death or terminating a pregnant, and a low-weight baby whose strict vegan diet has prompted Social Services to file child-abuse charges against her parents. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide House: Love Hurts Cameron (Jennifer Morrison) agrees to return to the clinic on one condition: House (Hugh Laurie) must take her out on a dinner date. As the rest of the staffers place bets as to the outcome of this auspicious social event, the clinic treats a young stroke victim (John Cho) whose condition may be the result of a mistake on the part of House--or it may be due to the patient's rather kinky "personal guru" (Christina Cox). Elsewhere, House must play counselor to a pair of senior citizens (Peter Graves June Squibb) who are squabbling over the man's heightened post-Viagra sex drive! ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide House: Honeymoon House (Hugh Laurie) is flummoxed by the plight of his ex-girlfriend Stacy Warner (Sela Ward), who can't understand why her husband Mark (Currie Graham) is suffering from abdominal pains and mood swings--nor why Mark is vividly recalling events during his honeymoon that never actually happened! It's not stress, and it's not Alzheimers...but it could be fatal if House makes the wrong diagnosis. As this final episode of House's first season approaches its cliffhanger climax, it looks as if there still may be a few romantic sparks between the ill-tempered doctor and his former sweetheart. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide House: Three Stories Sela Ward makes her first appearance as Stacy Warner, former lawyer for the Princeton-Plainsboro clinic--and ex-girlfriend of Dr. House (Hugh Laurie). Stacy's husband has fallen mysteriously ill, and she hopes that House can find out why. But House seems more preoccupied with delivering a lecture to three medical-school diagnostics--an assignment he was forced to accept, but one which he tackles with his usual mean-spirited gusto. As he presents the trio with a hypothetic medical dilemma involving three patients with aching legs, we are treated to a succession of bizarre fantasy sequences. Carmen Electra appears as herself in this episode, which won both an Emmy award (for "best writing") and the Humanitas Prize. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide House: Poison While taking the AP Calculus exam, high-school student Matt Davis (John Patrrick Amedori) collapses. Discovering that Matt has been lethally poisoned, House (Hugh Laurie) suspects that the boy has been doing drugs at home. When another student exhibits the same symptoms, however, it is obvious that the source of the poison is the school testing room--but how can this be? Meanwhile, another clinic patient, 82-year-old Georgia Adams (Shirley Knight), suddenly develops an uncontrollable sex drive...and an insatiable lust for Dr. House! ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide House: DNR Legendary jazz musician John Henry Giles (Harry Lennix) collapses during a recording session. After Giles' own doctor Marty Hamilton (David Conrad) diagnoses the dread disease ALS, the musician hastily signs a "do not resuscitate" form. Naturally, House (Hugh Laurie) ignores this document, and as a result ends up in court--just as Giles begins to exhibit inexplicable signs of recovery! Meanwhile, Dr. Hamilton tries to persuade his former pupil Dr. Foreman (Omar Epps) to leave New Jersey and join him in a lucrative West Coast partnership. Pop star Brandy appears as herself. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide House: Histories A homeless, unidentified woman (Leslie Hope) collapses during a run-in with the police, then suffers a seizure at the clinic. Foreman (Omar Epps) thinks that the woman is faking illness to get free room and board, while Wilson (Robert Sean Leonard) insists that she has ovarian cancer. Typically, House trumps them both with a theory of his own, and as a bonus figures out the woman's true identity--much to the fascination of two wide-eyed medical students who've been following House around all day. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide House: Sports Medicine Pro baseball pitcher Hank Wiggen (Scott Foley) insists he is not a drug user, but the evidence indicates otherwise: His bones are brittle to the point of disintegration, and his kidneys have started to fail. Astonishingly, the clinic's lab test indicate that Wiggen is not currently on steroids, nor is he suffering from cancer as the symptoms might also suggest. House (Hugh Laurie) must figure out what's really wrong with Wiggen before the ballplayer's girlfriend Lola (Meredith Monroe) aborts her pregnancy in order to donate her kidneys. And in another development, Foreman (Omar Epps) is secretly dating a sexy drug representative (Salli Richardson-Whitfield), while Wilson (Robert Sean Leonard) is seeing one of House's former lovers. Somehow or other, this all winds up at a monster-truck rally! ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide House: Cursed After developing a rash and several symptoms of pneumonia, 12-year-old Gabriel Reilich (Daryl Sabara) concludes that his Ouija board is right, and that he has been "cursed." House (Hugh Laurie), of course, is certain that there is a more logical answer, but to get that answer he'll have to penetrate the wall of silence erected by Gabriel's wealthy and powerful father (Nestor Carbonell). Meanwhile, Chase (Jeff Spencer) is none too pleased when his rheumotologist father (Patrick Bachau) flies in from Australia--especially when Chase Sr. seems to hit it off with House! ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

In the premiere episode of 30 Rock, Liz (Fey) scrambles to find an act to replace the sketch of hers that has been cut from The Girlie Show at the last minute. Later, Liz and producer Pete (Scott Adsit) have a somewhat disenchanting meeting with new VP of Programming Jack Donaghy (Baldwin), who comes off as exceptionally arrogant and appears to want to change the entire format of the show. Additionally, Donaghy makes some sizable waves when he suggests bringing in controversial actor Tracy Jordan (Morgan) as the new star of the series. While Liz does eventually agree to meet with Tracy, the actor proves somewhat unpredictable and eventually drags her out to a soul food restaurant and a nearby strip club. Upon learning that Jack has fired Pete, Liz informs Tracy that she is going to quit The Girlie Show but Pete implores her not to quit over his firing. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide 30 Rock: The Rural Juror No synopsis available. 30 Rock: The "C" Word No synopsis available. 30 Rock: Tracy Does Conan No synopsis available. 30 Rock: Black Tie No synopsis available. 30 Rock: Cleveland No synopsis available. 30 Rock: Corporate Crush No synopsis available. 30 Rock: Fireworks No synopsis available. 30 Rock: The Fighting Irish No synopsis available. 30 Rock: The Source Awards No synopsis available. 30 Rock: Hardball No synopsis available. 30 Rock: Up All Night No synopsis available. 30 Rock: The Head and the Hair No synopsis available. 30 Rock: The Baby Show No synopsis available. 30 Rock: Ludachristmas The staffers celebrate the holidays with a party---which comes complete with a lusty Santa.
