*In " Birthmarks" we see House give a eulogy at his Dad's funeral. He starts off rattling about how much he hates the man, and then reels it in and says some somewhat genuine things, his voice cracks and he looks close to crying....before he turns around and takes a DNA sample from his dad. Was the voice crack real emotion, or was he just faking it?He obviously has some conflicted emotions about his dad so maybe it was real, on the other hand he immediately turned around and took a DNA sample, so it's kind of ambiguous.

** The only way to prevent the chronic, severe pain, ( which he was warned of and would have known about, being a doctor), was to amputate at the time of the infarction. That would have minimized phantom pain. It is now too late. The reason he didn't amputate his leg was that he's stubborn, just like the incident with the rug. It's supposed to show an aspect of House's character, how his stubbornness and unwillingness to chance harms him.

* How did Robert Sean Leonard grow up to become an oncologist after killing himself 20 years ago when Red Foreman wouldn't let him play Puck in ''AMidsummerNightsDream''?

*** Doesn't explain the lack of reaction on part of everybody else (neighbors, relatives, passers-by etc) though. Seriously, it would have been more plausible if they got caught at least once.

** Cuddy's not actually any better with any other members of the team(s), but it's much less noticeable since she interacts with them even less than with Foreman.

** This presumes the hospital would keep checking after the dental records had confirmed identity. The police/EMTs knew House was in the building but didn't know about the other guy. They checked the identity of the corpse, saw it matched House's records, and said it was House. They aren't going to be testing over and over again to make sure.

*** That's exactly the point. He's not able to concentrate, making him unable to pull off the genius math skills he otherwise would be able to. And the DXM has made him disassociate - from the world, life, and reality he had before. He wouldn't be able to connect with any of his previous colleagues or friends.

** Add in that while sickle cell trait doesn't ''exist'' in people with non-tropical (Africa, the Middle East, the Mediterranean, and South Asia) heritage (it's surmised that it was an evolutionary defense against malaria), there is a specific type of hemochromatosis called "African hemochromatosis" and it's only "hereditary hemochromatosis" that is rare among dark-skinned peoples.

Added DiffLines:

**** Mirror box therapy is still very shaky, especially since it is somewhat of a placebo treatment and requires that the patient believe it was real. Given that House knows exactly how this works, it likely wouldn't work on him. Like a magician not enjoying magic shows because he can tell exactly how it's happening.
