House 12-Step Formula [View all]

Last edited Sun Jul 10, 2022, 10:06 AM - Edit history (4)

So, I'm watching House and have made it to Season 5. I have to say the show is, uh, a bit formulaic. Here's the tried-and-true House 12-Step Formula:

1) Rando #1 appears to suffer from a medical condition
2) (variation) Rando #2 collapses nearby and is actually the one with the mysterious condition
3) House pops Vicodin like Pez and is unfazed by symptoms
4) Differential diagnosis meeting fails to produce correct diagnosis
5) (variation) Team members try unsuccessfully to hide personal relationships from House
6) House sexually harasses female members of team
7) (variation) House sexually harasses female supervisor
8) Team unlawfully searches patient's home and applies incorrect treatment to patient
9) Patient appears to improve, then spews blood
10) House has an epiphany about medical mystery entirely on his own from unrelated event
11) House introduces himself to patient in a sardonic way
12) Patient is successfully treated and makes a miraculous full recovery

Feel free to adapt this formula into a drinking game.
