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.

Mickey 1

Mickey is the undercover police officer involved in a drug deal who collapses ever time he hears a loud noise in the episode The Down Low. He is portrayed by actor Ethan Embry.

Medical History

The patient sought treatment for facial lacerations. However, he was not forthcoming as to the cause of his injuries and refused to share his medical history with the doctors or to guide them to any previous medical records. The only information he shared was that three years previously, he had suffered from back strain.

Mickey, who was accompanied by his friend Eddie, sought out treatment at the clinic for facial lacerations. At Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital, he was treated by Dr. House who wanted to perform a CT Scan to ensure that Mickey hadn't suffered a serious head injury. Mickey refused to discuss how he got injured. However, he insisted that although he had a headache he wasn't feeling dizzy and he demanded to be treated and released. Dr. House kept questioning Mickey and Eddie, noting that they had not gone to the emergency room for treatment, most likely because a lot of police officers are there for one reason or another. However, neither Mickey nor Tommy was forthcoming. Dr. House noted that Mickey had no scrapes on his hands, which meant he didn't try to brace himself as he fell. He was most likely unconscious before he fell. He also noted that apart from the cut on his head, there was no sign of trauma, which meant he wasn't hit in the head. He also noticed a powder burn on his sleeve, meaning that he had been near a gun when it was fired. Mickey got up to leave, but Dr. House said he didn't care what they were up to but if Mickey didn't get a full work up it would happen again. To prove his point, he smashed a table with his cane to make a loud noise. Mickey collapsed again.

Dr. House described the case to his team, explaining that Mickey had vertigo that was induced by loud noise. His CT Scan was clean and there was no internal bleeding or edema. The only history they had was that the patient had admitted straining his back three years before. Dr. House explained that Mickey was probably a drug dealer - he was wearing gold, Tommy had a Rolex and their cell phones were prepaid. Dr. Foreman noted that since the vertigo was noise induced, it had to be something wrong with his ear or brain. Acoustic neuroma was most likely. Dr. House thought it might be lidocaine toxicity. He ordered his team to test Mickey's ears while he went to get a cocaine sample to see if it was cut with lidocaine. ....
