(no subject)

I just watched House again with my 12 year old daughter.



She cried too.

Yeah, your daughter is all sorts of awesome.

Words cannot express how happy I was with the last five minutes of the episode (or how anxious I am to get screencaps of the last five minutes of the episode :)

Cuddy bringing a broken House to the one person that can help was probably the biggest OT3 moment of this show's history. I loved how they paralleled House thinking that Cuddy was the solution to all his problems in the last episode with Cuddy bringing House to Wilson in this one.

Such high hopes for next season.

Aww, thanks. I think so, too! :-)

Agreed. I can't wait for the screencaps, either!

I don't think I would have been happy had Cuddy NOT brought House to Wilson. It was, IMHO, Wilson's obligation (maybe too strong a word?) to be the one to take House to Mayfield.

I love Doris Egan. She hit a home run with this episode. I am also anxiously looking forward to season 6. (Can't help but think that there are going to be some "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" moments next season!)

Don't they?

My daughter absolutely loves House. She thinks he's hysterical, but she also has a great deal of compassion for him.

Smart kid.

I tried not to cry, because my husband was in the next room. I just hate being emotional in general. But I can only cry about movies or music when I am absolutely alone.

My 8 year old recently expressed some interest in watching the show.

We're a lot alike.

I try very, very hard to be alone when watching something emotional, so I watched it the first time by myself. I tend to be very stoic in front of other people, and it's rare that I will show much emotion publicly.

But I watched it again with her, and it was just as difficult to watch the second time. When I saw her start to cry, it made me even more weepy.

My daughter LOVES House. She thinks he's funny and sometimes "evil" (a word she uses for everything), but she's much like me in that she sees him as a tragic figure who deserves compassion and understanding, and deserves to be loved.

My kids first became involved with the show when I caught 4 tadpoles in 2007 and named them House, Wilson, Chase and Foreman.

They are aware of the show and even seem to know who is who, but will run out of the room when any graphic procedures are taking place. Which I find odd for the older one, who has watched all LOTR films in their entirety.

Tadpoles named after House et al! How cute!

I can see why some of the graphic scenes would bother the kids. (Personally, I think they're not nearly as bad as the scenes in the CSI franchise, but they can still be pretty gross.)

That's pretty cool, though, that they know who all the characters are.

Lindsay's been watching House with me since the second season. It's so much fun to talk to her about it (which she loves to do because she thinks House is the funniest guy on earth) because unlike other friends and family, she doesn't think I'm a whackjob for being so obsessed with Hugh and House.

They know I write stories about House. But they are still confused as to why anyone would want to read them.

"Who are these people?" My daughter will ask. The idea of there being people that you can interact with JUST via the internet is still puzzling her, I think.

When I was a kid, the tadpoles were always Kirk, Spock and McCoy...

I can just picture quizzical looks on little faces, trying to figure out why grownups want to read anything at all, much less stories about some weird guy on TV.

"Who are these people?"

Hee. How many times I've asked myself that same question! (And how many times have I been grateful that you can only interact with certain people via the internet? LOL)

Ah. Star Trek. Captain Kirk was my first major TV character crush.

They'll be like "so what's your story about" and I'll be like "grownup stuff" and they'll be like "boring!"

I hear the word "boring" a lot from my kid, too. Personally, I love all those "boring" stories.

My favorite is when they say "I'm boring" but really mean that they are bored.

Hee. Cute! I miss those days. They grow up way too fast.

I managed not to cry, but it was a close thing. My stomach is still in knots. It was great though.

It's still with me, almost a day later. I can't stop thinking about that final scene and the sad looks on House and Wilson's faces.

Wow.
