Just to be mean, they put li'l Taub in front of Gigantic 77 and had them both stand there for a minute for comedy purposes before 77 sits back down on his hospital bed. Taub explains the pituitary theory, but all 77 cares about is if they'll be able to treat it in time for some big game on Saturday that will basically determine whether or not he gets drafted into the NFL. "This is a job interview for the rest of his life," Pushy Mom says. Um, no, Pushy Mom, it isn't. Best case scenario, it's a job interview for the next 15 years of his life. Taub says if all goes well, 77 will still be able to play.
House has Clinic duty!! Between that and the leg pain, it's like someone who has actually seen this show before wrote this episode. He examines the eyes of a patient who insists that he's seeing spots, then instadiagnoses him with being in the military, about to ship out, and looking for a medical excuse to get out of it. The patient says he's been deployed three times already and now, with his wife close to giving birth to their first child, the Army decided that even though his contract with them ended last week, he's going back for a fourth time. House doesn't care and won't help the guy because he's apparently big into war. Army can't believe it; he assumed that House would know how he feels because he decided that House's limp is from a Vietnam injury. Seriously? That limp could be from anything! House, meanwhile, is offended. "How old do you think I am?" he asks. "I don't know, Vietnam age?" Army says. House says something about Vietnam draft dodgers being brave enough to run to Canada or shoot themselves in the foot. I'm sure Army didn't pay any attention to that comment.
