May 15, 2007: The Jerk Season 3, Episode 23

Just ask him to stay already! Am I the only one who wanted to reach through the screen and scream this at House? Foreman wants to stay, House wants him to stay, but they are both too stubborn to make that happen without the other asking for that privilege. Men. The funny thing is, Foreman is leaving because he doesn't want to turn into House, yet here he is acting just like the man. Methinks it's time for a little self-reflection, Eric. How funny was this week's patient? Nate, played with finesse by Nick Lane was an obnoxious teenager suffering, it turns out, from hemachromatosis - too much iron in his blood - which had him in excruciating pain. Much to his beleaguered mother's ( Colleen Flynn) dismay, Nate's personality problems were not a side effect of his illness. Nate's prickly style had Chase declaring him evil and Foreman sedating him purely to shut him up. Is it any wonder that House liked him? In the midst of figuring out Nate's problem, Foreman tried to solve a little mystery of his own called: Who's Sabotaging my Career?. It seems someone at Princeton-Plainsboro doesn't want Foreman to leave, and went so far as to cancel a scheduled job interview. Let the amateur sleuthing begin. Was it Cuddy, who offered to double Foreman's salary and set up his own practice? Was it Wilson, House's self-admitted enabler? Was it Cameron, enabler No. 2? Before the big reveal I almost wondered if Foreman set the whole thing up himself to force House's hand - but no need because, of course, it was House. We know he isn't above a little underhanded manipulation; in fact he's proud of it. "I only sabotage people I consider worth it." Almost brings a tear to my eye. What about Cameron declaring to Wilson that, "House is nothing more than a boss." Hell, what about Cameron suggesting that Chase would wreck Foreman's job opportunity for no reason apart from the fact that if he wanted to, he could. Chase still wants this woman? After that barb from Cam, I hope Chase calls out next Tuesday. But then, of course, he'd miss Foreman's last day, wouldn't he? Show of hands: Who thinks Foreman will actually leave? Hmm... None? Shocking! Next week is the finale, so mark it in whatever organizational tool you use. Until then I leave you with some random thoughts, quotes, comments and questions. - Tell me I'm wrong and that I did not see administrator Cuddy in a skirt with a thigh-high slit. - Nate called Chase "Doogie" - loved it! - I swear I saw a glint in Cameron's eye after Chase got tough and threatened Nate with restraints. - We really need to see this "weird night janitor who wears his pants backwards" on-screen. - House introducing himself to Nate, "I'm Dr. McCaney." - House going head-to-head with Nate: "Arrogance has to be earned, what have you done to earn yours?" Nate retorting with, "I can walk." - House telling Foreman that he's not ready to be on his own because, "You still trust my judgement more than your own." Come on, that's basically code for "Won't you please stay, Foreman. Pretty please?" Yeah, Foreman, just stay. You know you want to. CORRECTION: The Season 3 Finale will air in two weeks on May 29, 2007 and not next week as mentioned above. Find video from House in our Online Video Guide. show less
