Last week’s installment of the InHouse app was about the fabulous “Two Stories” episode, one of our favorites here at App’s Eye View. There are lots of kids in this House episode, which is reflected in the Dark Room’s content: kids outside the fictional Brye Park Elementary School, kids in the gymnasium, kids in the classroom (oh, hi, Patrick Price, we see you milling around the scenes trying to look inconspicuous), kids have a great old time chatting with Hugh Laurie. We also get a blueprint of the principal’s office, as well as the episode’s continuity sheet.
Lisa Edelstein and Jesse Spencer answer viewer questions in the Media Room. Here’s the transcript:
Lisa, what was your best on-screen moment with Hugh?
Edelstein: One of the first really incredibly poignant experiences for me with Hugh was where my character thinks she was going to have an adopted baby and at the last minute she [had to give the baby] back, and then he comes over and they kiss for the first time. I just love the idea that these two characters came together through such pain. She had to be in that much pain for him to feel safe approaching her
Jesse, in the beginning, House kept ‘throwing things’ at Chase. Was that in the script or did that just happen?
Spencer: No, that was just Hugh.
Edelstein: I love that.
Spencer: It’s just improvising. You know what I did love? One time he had the ball, you know the ball on his desk? One time he whacked me on the back of the head with it.
Edelstein: Did it end up on the show?
Spencer: Yeah. I just went like that (Spencer bobs his head up and back).
Chase never seemed like a womanizer before Cameron. What do you think happened?
Edelstein: You know what? I think he was a womanizer, even then. Your whole relationship with Cameron started and was totally sexual. I don’t think he was ever the ‘good boy’.
