Someone on the house_chase
community is uploading H/C (hurt/comfort... no, of course
it's House/Chase, what d'you think the community's for?) moments, and I saw the priceless moment in Season 1, Episode 15: Mob Rules
where Chase gets bitch-slapped by the lawyer brother of a gay gangster patient. WAY to hit all the "Make aefallen
Pay Attention" buttons all at once
and in such a way as to give me
whiplash from racing to see it happen.
I like to call it Chase's Wolfram Moment.
in which slapping makes the world go 'round
Why Life is Such a Bitch to Chase
(no, not because Chase is a bitch)
1. It's tough enough being a doctor without being bitchslapped by your patient's relatives.
DIRECT POST-SLAP FACE
MORE POST-SLAP FACE
2. And having to tend to the guy who's the reason for your being slapped in the first place.
3. YOUR BOSS DOESN'T BELIEVE YOU:
In this scene, he says, "YOU CAN TRUST ME."
House obviously disagrees.
The TRUST ME! Wombat dance.
(when I was young, the words "Trust me" were my favourite words to hear in cartoon series. :D)
4. Your boss wants to fire someone and at the moment it looks like it's gonna be YOU.
(Also, that is the girliest post ever, Chase)
The Difference Between Reality and That Other Sparkly Pretty Thing
The Pretty Thing:
After seeing the word "Hoyay" (means "homoeroticism, yay!") around way
too many sites and not at all understanding what it means, I finally found this site
, which made me laugh hysterically (clearly I am easily amused) when I read, "In another episode, House declares "I love you!" when Wilson gives him more Vicodin, causing squee in millions of ho yay fans." Causing squee? Causing squee
? Oh guys you crack me up!
Their six-line Heroes summary had me laughing even harder
But the one that had me laughing the hardest (probably due to the cumulative effect of all the other lines) was, "Brothers Sam and Dean Winchester of Supernatural are breathlessly subtextualized by Television Without Pity recappers, and copious notes are taken on all possible examples of "Bro Yay.""
This post has been brought to you by a very long
I have discovered that if I really
like a series, I tend to make a With Stupid icon out of it. This is probably because when I was young and impressionable, lacewood
showed me a Hector -> Paris "I'm With Stupid" icon. And THAT WAS IT:
and sometimes, YOU SAY IT BEST WHEN YOU SAY NOTHING AT ALL, or,
WHEN A LOOK SAYS IT ALL:
Hugh Laurie in Blackadder
- as the Prince Regent, in Blackadder
. I watched Blackadder long before House
was a twinkle in Master Laurie's eye, and the Prince Regent always made me want to A) laugh hysterically, B) strangle him, C) wonder long and hard about how anyone could be that stupid
, even on television. I really don't associate this character with House at all, but with Hugh Laurie.
And oh, was the Prince Regent fabulously gay
, in every sense of the word.
Prince Regent (to Blackadder): "What can I do with a woman that I cannot do with you?"
Blackadder: "I cannot conceive."
