You Ask, We Answer: ‘House’ Season 7 ‘Office Politics’ & ‘A Pox On Our House’

Published 3 years ago by , Updated October 25th, 2010 at 4:03 pm,

Q: Even though Cuddy is hurt, and their relationship is challenged, does it seem House’s decision is in line with what makes him the most incredible man Cuddy has ever known?
Yes, but it’s not always easily to realize that.

Q: Does it seem the weight of House/Cuddy emotional interchanges reveal the depth of their love? Are their emotions only viewed by the audience or other characters?
Very much so, but maybe not entirely in the way you’re thinking. There’s no doubt that they care for each other deeply. There are some private emotionally scenes, but also some extremely public scenes that are very touching.

Q: Since there is no clear right or wrong in the character decisions, what about the POTW? Are the motives and situations surrounding the patient as complex?
Completely! Both patients in episode 6 and 7 have extremely complex stories, medical mysteries and, for the most part, are extremely complex characters.

Q: Will Amber’s character reveal things about Taub that set-up the future storyline surrounding issues with Taub and Rachel’s marriage?
I don’t think so, but you do get a glimpse at a side of Taub that you weren’t expecting.

Q: Since House making this type of decision isn’t necessarily new for the character, would you say the relationship with Cuddy making this time different is allowing us to explore his character at a new, deeper level?
Yes, to an extent. House acknowledges the importance of his relationship with Cuddy, but he can’t change who he is.

Q: Do the words “I love you” come out of House or Cuddy at any point during the episodes?

Q: Do you know who wrote the episodes?
Great question. Unfortunately, I don’t. The episodes end for me after the final scene.

Q: Do you find those Huddy fans babbling about the same thing over and over annoying?
Haha, no, not at all. Everyone tends to ask different questions and even the ones that are similar tend to be tweaked just a little bit different so that it’s harder for me to withhold information. icon wink You Ask, We Answer: House Season 7 Office Politics & A Pox On Our House

Q: Do House and Cuddy talk about how his decision affects their relationship, or is it just implied?
There is talk, but the audience is very much in House’s mind-set and unsure with what’s going on.

Q: You said House and Cuddy don’t kiss, but do they at least hug it out? icon wink You Ask, We Answer: House Season 7 Office Politics & A Pox On Our House
Sorry, they don’t pull an Ari Gold. Although, they do “look it out” and in this instance, it’s almost as emotional as if they were to “kiss it out” or “hug it out.”

Q: Does the jail time affect Chase personally more than the other two members? Will it remind him of what he did last season (killing a patient)?
This jail experience will be very enjoyable to the audience, there is no emotional baggage attached.

Q: Does Chase have good scenes with House?
Kind of, in episode 7.

Q: Do you think that Cuddy will forgive House for whatever he did that hurt her?
Probably, but we all know that it’s hard to know what Cuddy is going to do.

Q: So Cuddy knows about what House did. But does House know that Cuddy knows or is one of those things Cuddy will pretend not to know about and avoid addressing the issue?
There are no secrets.

Q: Will House be ok at the end of episode 7?
You won’t know until episode 8.

Q: Is there any evidence (actual or implied) that House and Cuddy stop sleeping together as a result of the events of these 2 episodes?
Haha, no, there is no evidence of that.

Q: Is there any sign of House’s leg bothering him in the two episodes?
Hmmm… nothing overt. He gets around pretty well.

Q: What happens to Chase in Jail? He did look more shocked than Taub and Foreman to be there in the preview clip.
All three of them experience the same thing, which is hilarious.

Q: Please tell us more about what’s going on with Chase in those episodes.
There really isn’t much. Sorry.

  1. All above questions have been answered.

  2. House and Cuddy dance in one of the episode, do you know the song? Can you tell us?

  3. You said Cuddy loves Martha. Is there any indication that Cuddy knows Martha on a personal level?

  4. How Martha interacts with Cuddy?? she sees her as role model?

  5. I really enjoy the this show and have found that putting House and Cuddy together has made House interesting again. Several of my friends who had stopped watching are starting to get into the show again because he actually seems to be growing. So my question is, in episode six and seven do we see some good character growth or new insights into House? How about insights or growth in Cuddy or Wilson?

    Also, I am very intrigued about the new character played by Amber Tamblyn and wonder if watching her and House interact brings anything new to his character as well? Or is it simply an amusing interplay between two different personalities?

  6. so, am i getting your hints right, that House and Cuddy’s relationship still has hope and that their relationship is not failing at the end of these episodes? They are still together right. Also is the thing that house does that hurts Cuddy so damaging that its almost unrepairable?

    Thanks for answering all these questions, it helps me with my tv nerves.

  7. Thanks so much for doing this. It wa a cool thing for you to do.
    Glad to hear Lisa had some scenes to show her talent.
    Loaded question and you don’t even have to say who says it:

    What was the most touching line? You can even reword it to hide identities. Please??

  8. Did House lie to Cuddy in Episode 6~?
    Is that the decision House made involve this lie??

  9. thanks a lot… I’ve an other question to ask: is everything happens in the episode 6 or that an impression ? is the episode 7 better than the 6th ?

  10. Interesting. Do you think they’ll keep Amber Tamblyn’s character around for a while?

  11. Any clue of what House is doing that may put his life on risk? Please

  12. Does Cuddy have to do anything that requires her to protect House?

  13. By “Lisa Edelstein is the one who shines” you mean that we’re gonna see this one dramatic face of hers she does in every serious scene again? Can’t wait.

  14. Just a quick question to finally stop all this negative speculations about Huddy.. By the end of Epi 7, they are still together, right? That’s all I need to know for me to be relieved.. hehe, SALAMAT [THANKS]..

    • not all speculations can/have to be good ones, especially of the outcome looks sketchy. but Huddy is still together after 7×7, so relax and just enjoy the show.

  15. Does Taub know Martha because she’s an ex-mistress (hug!), because she’s an ex-patient of his surgical practice, (it would be fun to learn that she used to be a dude or something) or is she his long-lost daughter (god please no !) ?
    Those are the only possibilities I can think of.

    • He interviewed her for Hopkins.

  16. Did Robert Sean Leonard’s daughter played Cuddy’s daughter in some of the earlier episodes – “Known Unknows” and “5 to 9″.

    The little girl looks quite like him? Will be interesting to know!



  17. PLEASE do you know if House will have a run in with Lucas in the near future? House stayed Lucas’s (sort of) friend when he was dating Cuddy… do you know if House and Lucas’s relationship will have any major swan song, or continuation?

  18. Will there be some new House merchandise available soon? (i.e. shirts, magnets, cups, etc…) If so when and where can I get it at? or if I missed the boat and they are already available where can I go to see them?

  19. I just watched tonight episode with house and cuddy and I see what I mean about their possible relationship problem. I was wondering do you think this means that Cuddy will no longer be all in or that she now she questions the possibility of her really being together with house? or does it bother her more that her hopes of his changing (his core) is who he really is so she is unsure if she really wants to be with him? Do youthink that she was disilluisioned tonight about their future together? Do you intend to keep them together?

  20. Does the look that Masters gives while cuddy and house are arguing about Masters staying and Cuddy refuses to let Maters quit. Is that laugh a manipulating one or something else. For example, just her smiling at the two characters interaction or appreciating cuddys siding with her, or is she just trying to see how far she can push both characters or what she can get away with?

  21. What does Taub says to Masters at the end of there discussion in the locker room, I just can’t pick iti up

    • He asks if it ‘Is this Grandmas tea cozy?’ in reference to House asking Masters if her Grandma gave her a cruddy tea cozy for x-mas would she lie and tell her Grandma she liked it. Taub is asking if Masters is lying to him to be nice and spare his feelings.

    • Next time you cannot make out what is being said, try turning on CC (closed captioning), this assuming you can rewind the video to the spot you are attempting to decipher…

  22. what does Taub say to Masters at the end of the locker room conversation where Masters reveals to Taub that she remembers him from the Hopkins interview?

    I can’t make out what Taub is saying!!

  23. “is this grandma’s tea cozy?” referencing house/masters conversation about lying earlier in episode

    • Could someone explain what “Is this Grandma’s tea cozy ?” means to a non native English speaker ?

      • Taub asks Masters ‘Is this Grandmas tea cozy?’ because House asked Masters earlier in the episode if her Grandma gave her a cruddy tea cozy for Christmas would she lie and tell her Grandma she liked it. Taub is asking Masters if she is lying to him in order to be nice and spare his feelings.

        • Thanks spark chick! for your answer.

    • Yes. Taub is essentially asking Masters if she is lying to him in order to spare his feelings.

  24. Do you know who wrote the episode Office Politics? The new character is named Martha M. Masters. Many years ago I taught with an English teacher named Martha M. Master. Perhaps the author of the episode is a former student. This is too coincidental.

  25. queria saber sobre as fotos que eles esta na praia se vc sabe se vai aconteceu aquilo mesmo , e quando

  26. I curious about the new character, “Masters”. The first 2 episodes worked for me, but she is already pretty predictable in her on-screen mannerisms etc., such as body-language, or head/eye movements when depicting moods, etc..
    Does anyone else feel that her “shelf-life” might be limited?

    Also, with House and Cuddy together, the episodes have started to “Feel” forced and have lost the tension that made the show interesting.

    I think it’s safe to say that in most Television Shows, where there is a chemistry between the main characters, that the masses want them to get together. In every case I can think of, it is never better television when it does happen.

  27. In “Office Politics”…are there any “REAL LIFE” cases where that treatment of using “A” actually wiped “C” out? Is there ANY such possibility??? I haven’t seen 1 person in this thread even comment or question the validity of this and I am extremely shocked, ESPECIALLY since people being diagnosed with it today are still told it’s a death sentence!
    PLEASE LMK if there’s ANY truth to this, or if it’s purely fiction?!? I’m dying to know ;)

  28. What’s the song at the end of “office politics?”

  29. What is the name of the piano song that is playing in the end of episode 6 season 7?
