In "Bitch Tape #2" of the Nurse Jeffrey Appisodes, Nurse Jeffrey gets his hands even dirtier in his efforts to defile the great Dr. House. This week he aims his sights on a lab technician who House asked to do an emergency panel and look for hidden cancer. As it turns out, House was really looking for a hidden STD... for a hooker (“and tigers and bears, oh, my!” exclaims Nurse Jeffrey). Although how the tech knew the hooker was wearing “do-me five-inch pumps and no underwear” is something that is never explained. Would House really have brought his ‘lady of choice’ into the labs of Princeton-Plainsboro and hold a conversation with her about condoms and venereal disease in front of everyone? It seems a bit beyond the realm of something even he would do.
In the end our beleaguered Nurse Jeffrey is skunked again when the tech reveals House legitimized the tests by keeping a file on his ‘patient.’ As far as the hospital is concerned, House ran an STD test on a patient who requested same. Poor Nurse Jeffrey. It seems House has covered his tracks well and you must continue your quest to bring the great man down.
Credit where credit is due on these Appisodes is really a must. Let's hear about the writers, producers, and directors who worked on this project. And who are the fine actors portraying the folks who make up the hospital staff? The Nurse Jeffrey Appisodes continue to be a fun way to spend three minutes of your Monday night.
A week before the Appisodes began, the InHouse app ran an interview with House staff writer Russel Friend in which he discussed the season six finale. The interview appeared after my update ran, so I’ve decided to cover it here.
