About House, M.D.
House, also known as House, M.D., was a critically-acclaimed American medical drama television series created by David Shore and executively produced by film director Bryan Singer. The Emmy and Peabody award-winning medical drama debuted on the FOX Network on November 16, 2004, and aired its last episode on May 21, 2012.
For eight years the show brought in people from around the globe, bringing intrigue and mystery in the form of unusual medical cases in a vein reminiscent of the mysteries solved by Sherlock Holmes. Furthermore, these cases were the catalyst for the discussion of philosophical and ethical issues and decisions, a lot of which were not left with a clear victor, but all of which revealed more and more of the character of each of the different doctors that comprised the team each year. In the end, while the team didn't completely understand (or appreciate) House's methods fully, the show gives a final hurrah as each of the members walks away with something they realize was the right thing to do after all. Although the mantra "Everybody Lies" is proven over and over again, the concept that "people never change, they only come up with better lies" is tested up until the last moments as the characters (and the show) drive off into an adventure left to the imagination.
Everything is challenged, nothing is sacred, and the most profound revelations of life can be found within the 172 hours of television given over the course of the eight seasons of pill-popping, dripping sarcasm, dark humor, and intelligent storytelling ever to grace the small screen of the living room (or large screen, if that may be the case, but then...everybody lies). This wiki is intended for your perusal to catch up, read, make new or more complete connections on various subject matter, or perhaps relive the funny if outrageous times given to us by actor Hugh Laurie and company.

"Bombshells" is a 7th season episode of House which first aired on March 7, 2011. It is directed by Greg Yaitanes. This episode took a rather different approach through use of dream sequences and choreographed scenes. Among the styles copied were 50's television sitcoms, modern westerns, and zombie movies.
House treats a teenager who coughs up blood during a basketball game, but he's distracted when Cuddy has symptoms of her own and has to go through her own diagnosis. The character's hopes, fears and aspirations start playing out as fantasies and dreams. When Cuddy’s prognosis gets worse, House can‘t bring himself to face her until he turns to an "old friend."
Forget the plot - the most important part of the episode is the climax of the Huddy story arc. After six seasons of will they or won't they, fans finally get their answer of the ultimate outcome of the relationship.
The ultimate conclusion was hinted at in earlier episode as the initial high feelings of the couple settle into routine. Remarkably, the professional, even tempered Cuddy turns out to be the short-tempered one in the relationship, while the high strung unpredictable House turns out to be the one with the patience and humor. In addition, as House gets closer to Cuddy, he also becomes closer to Rachel and Arlene as well. Despite his faults, he shows he's perfectly capable of endearing himself to people when he makes an effort.
However, as Arlene puts it later in the series, perhaps the outcome of the relationship between the "two idiots with impossible standards" was a foregone conclusion. House expects his relationship with Cuddy to be like his relationship with Wilson - a constant stream of forgiveness because House, after all, is an intelligent and engaging companion with those he knows best. However, Cuddy expects her relationship with House to be like her relationship with her staff - a group of people to take the burden off of her shoulders even as she demands the best from them. In the end, both of them are disappointed..
Cuddy wakes up to an empty bed and goes to look for House. Suddenly, she feels someone grab for her leg, but it’s just House, who has gotten up early and hid under the bed just to scare her. She’s amused and they start making out, but she has to go and pee. House grabs a book. Cuddy calls for him - she tells him there is blood in her urine.
House accompanies Cuddy to the urologist for her exam, but brings his team along because they have a patient who spit up blood at a basketball game. The team starts a differential and Cuddy sends them out of the room. House calls at them to use a pill camera and check for angiodysplasia. ....
