House Season 3 Episodes

24 Episodes 2006 - 2007

The third season of House finds Dr. House (Hugh Laurie) in the dog house after antagonizing a police officer who becomes determined to take the cantankerous doctor down through a vicious Twitter campaign. Though Dr. Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) is skilled at putting Dr. House in his place when he goes too far, his staff is less than sympathetic and threaten that they will no longer work with him should his abusive behavior continue.

Episode 1

Meaning

Tue, Sep 5, 2006 60 mins

A pain-free House is on the run. Literally. After eight weeks of rehab from the shooting, he's running to the hospital, where two patients await him. One is a mute quadriplegic (the result of brain cancer) who drove his wheelchair into a pool. The other is a paralyzed young woman who injured herself in a yoga accident. But there's no evidence of spinal damage. House wants both cases because, he says, he wants to help the patients. Arlene: Kathleen Quinlan.
