What a treat to read it once again! And, it got me thinking...
How about exploring the general theme with a post? Soooo *drumroll* here it is!
Please jump in with:
Any House-Wilson recs where either House or Wilson are homeless.
New drabbles, one sentence, or six word stories..
Longer stories. They're guaranteed to be greeted like a prodigal son, but due to size, feel free to link to your site or post as a separate entry.
Wilson: You reading your patient's blog?
Wilson: [sitting] You should. Could be some clues.
House: Too many. Be like doing a whole body scan. Send us up eight blind alleys. That's why Chase is doing it.
Wilson: She mentions you.
House: She's never met me.
Wilson: You're an unseen presence, like the Wizard of Oz.
House: He was a fraud. She couldn't have gone with Keyser Soze? Speaking of movies that don't make any sense, I stopped at the rental store to get those pornos back. I told the guy at the counter I was so grateful that you'd returned them, but I wanted them. Guess what. You only returned two. You lost the third. It's decent of you to pay for it, not let them put it on my bill.
Wilson: You know... I can explain what happened.
House: I'm sure you could. But rather than listen to your lies, I thought it'd be more fun to drive all over town and get another copy. [smiles smugly]
Wilson: You have – you have it here?
[House makes a big show of hitting a button on his keyboard. Suggestive music starts playing. House’s shoulders start moving with the music. Wilson springs from his chair and goes behind the desk to look. House looks at Wilson while Wilson looks at a scene of people, wearing animal skins and antlers, dancing around a fire.]
Wilson: Oh, God. [The person nearest the camera turns. It’s a very young Wilson.] Oh, God! Okay, first, that's not me. It's not – mostly not – [He starts again.] I was – I was in college. [Young Wilson moves toward and then past the camera, smiling.] I don't – my roommate was minoring in film.
House: Are you hyperventilating? Remember that covering your mouth and one nostril can help.
Wilson; [pointing at the screen] He had to get this in for some grade, [on screen, the antlered Wilson peers out from behind a tree then heads for Moon Woman, who is lying on the ground] and he was desperate. And the only reason I did it was because no one would ever see it. Who knew he'd become an actual director?
House: He's not a director. He's an artist. The way he plays with light and darkness and… [Young Wilson puts his arm around the girl] boobs.
[On screen, Moon Woman is in Wilson’s arms. Only their torsos can be seen. As they turn away from the camera, Wilson has become another “actor” who barely looks like him.]
Wilson: That's not me.
Moon Woman: What are you? Where are you taking me?
Not-Wilson: Be not afraid. The forest nymphs have taught me how to please a woman.
Wilson: [desperate] That's not me. That's not – I mean, you can see it's not me. He added extra scenes so he could release it as a porno.
[Moon Woman is lying on the ground with her robe spread open. She wears a very modern bra. Not-Wilson leans over her, blocking the view.]
House: Be not afraid, Wilson. You took risks for your art.
Wilson: [sighing] Oh, boy. [He starts to leave. House continues watching the video, intently. At the door, Wilson turns back.]
Wilson: No one – Hey, look at me – No one can know about this.
House: From this moment on, my lips are sealed.
Private Lives, S6
We must have an opossum in residence close by -- Layla treed a youngster both last night and this morning in the backyard, scaring the bejeebers out of the little guy both times.
Currently reading Jay McInerney's The Good Life, sequel to Brightness Falls and the middle book in his "New York trilogy" (I've noticed some people calling it his "Yuppie trilogy," heh). It's a good read, but omg these characters do not talk like normal people talk. Before this I read Neil Gaiman's American Gods. I had read it once, years and years ago, but I heard Gaiman had restored something like 12K words to a new edition. It was interesting to see how the book did or did not follow the first season of the TV show, and how a few scenes had been transferred to TV virtually unchanged. I enjoyed it a lot -- two thumbs up, would recommend.
