    Default Van Halen mention on 'House' tonight

    Tonight on the season premeire of 'House', Dr House was seen in his
    office playing a white flying V and Dr. Cuddy comes in.

    She starts to mention the case that she wants him to work on and he
    says something to the effect of

    "..more important than learning Eddie Van Halen's two handed appregio
    technique?"


    Then he does some tapping on the guitar. Dr. Cuddy then unplugs the
    guitar from the amp and gives him a dirty look.

    Then at the very end of the episode, House is seen tuning up his
    guitar, addressing (what we assume) is a room of possible candidates
    for the job opening he has.

    He proceeds to tell them that the methods he will use to evaluate them
    will be unfair and sometimes illegal. Then he says "Look to your left.
    Now look to your right. One of those people will not be here in six
    weeks."

    And then he says, "Bring a cup"


    There must be a van halen fan in the writing staff for 'House'. Call me
    crazy...

    Nah...I'll just call you "The Guy That Missed The "House" Thread In "Non-Music".

    However...the mentions did indeed catch one off guard and make one think, didn't they?

    Precisely how were you put in your place? Christ, I merely made a joke, plus welcomed/applauded you noticing the mentions in the show.

    I'm honestly sorry that you feel I intended to hurt your feelings.

    I wondered if that quote would end up on this board. I shouldn't have wondered. LOL

    My wife got a chuckle out of it too. I told her that Van Halen is everywhere!!

    Sorry man. I was loaded when I wrote that! I had just come home from the bar.....

    Just re-read it this morning and wondered myself why I posted that....

    Apologies all around.

    It isn't a coincidence that VH is touring and House mentioned VH. I once worked with a marketing firm who put little references to products in tv shows.
    Right here I say....

    No doubt about it for a second. I looked at my wife and said " In fifteen minutes or less that line will be on the VH board" and low and behold you didn't dissapoint....

    It has taken me a month or so to get where the chef is coming from, but I get the joke. Most of us foodservice pro's have a little different take on things, i guess. Although i obviously don't speak for him. He is a well spoken man with a good sense of humor from what i can tell.

    Yup, that belongs in this thread alright.

    "Hysterical" alright.
