DI­AG­NO­SIS: BEST FRIENDS FOR­EVER

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Out Box Of The -

WHO THEY ARE: Gre­gory House (Hugh Lau­rie) and James Wil­son (Robert Sean Leonard), two bril­liant doc­tors at the fic­tional train­ing hospi­tal in House. HOW THEY MET: At a med­i­cal con­ven­tion. MOST BRO­MAN­TIC MO­MENT: When a bil­lion­aire hospi­tal board mem­ber guns for House’s ca­reer, Wil­son comes to his de­fence. He was the only per­son to vote against House’s dis­missal. WHY THEY’RE MEANT FOR EACH OTHER: They form the core re­la­tion­ship of the show. House needs ap­proval and ac­cep­tance from Wil­son, and Wil­son needs to feel needed by House. Yes, it’s ac­cu­rate to use ‘‘co-de­pen­dent’’ to de­scribe their friend­ship. ON-THE-ROCKS MO­MENT: This pair has its share of bumps in the road, but the most se­ri­ous split in­volved a woman. House, af­ter a drunken evening in a bar, called Wil­son for a ride home, but got Wil­son’s girl­friend, Am­ber, on the phone in­stead. On the way home from the bar, the bus they were rid­ing in was in an ac­ci­dent. Am­ber died, Wil­son quit the hospi­tal, packed up and moved on. But they rec­on­ciled when Wil­son drove House, against his wishes, to the fu­neral of House’s es­tranged fa­ther. FAVOURITE AC­TIV­ITY: Ban­ter­ing about whether House has popped too much Vi­codin to per­form an ac­cu­rate di­ag­no­sis.
