Middle aged white woman, impregnantated by gay friend’s sperm, is sick and dying. Medical team wants to terminate pregnancy to save the woman – the fetus is what’s killing her for some obscure medical reason. Dr. Cuddy, another middle aged white woman who is in charge and wants to be a mom too, says no, and to save the baby at all costs. This results in a fetal surgery where a tiny baby hand brings out Dr. House’s sensitive side, which of course, he quickly brushes away with a reference to Aliens. But, then, in talking with the patient when all is well and mom and baby are saved through miraculous modern science, he calls it a “baby” instead of a fetus. When patient thanks House, he say’s dont think me “I would have killed the kid.”
Oh House. Always a way with words.
