The strong implication that it was Taub who attempted suicide - wow. It's the kind of character reveal that could easily have come off as melodramatic, wangsty or self-pitying, but they did it very well. What a fascinating layer to add to the character. I sort of can't believe that the same people who are writing the unbelievable, manufactured drama for Poor! Dying! Thirteeeeen! are also writing this guy. Of course, it probably helps that PJ hits it out of the park every week.
Oh, and I just about died laughing at the Fire Island reference.

It's more like work side-kicks, for lack of a better expression. I'm not sure that they'd go see a magic show like Kutner did with Big Love, but they do work nicely together.
They don't quite seem to be friends, like buddy-buddy, but they work well together.
But again, they could've done so much interesting stuff with that! But if they follow the same pattern as they usually do, we'll never hear anything about it again.

Stop it, or they'll hire you to write next season's !Obligatory!Traumatic!Death!Plot!
Well, now Taub will presumably commit suicide because of an identity crisis over his goyish first name, and House will have to go yell at his parents.

He's rapidly become my favorite of the fellows.
(And the name "Chris" doesn't bug me because I've experienced Jewish families who go both very culturally Jewish -- my friend Avi, for instance -- and those who don't -- like my friend Jeff, because Jeff isn't exactly a Jewish name either.)

One of my friends was telling me of someone she knows whose family is pagan; they worship Woden, which I didn't know anyone did anymore. Anyway, his parents named him Kristian (with a K because with a C was just too Christian for them).The rest of his pagan family were definitely not happy at all about his parents' choice of name.

Updating this thread just to comment on how fun was for me to watch Taub actually screwing with House in Selfish, season 7's second episode. I look forward -and hope- for more Taub screwing with House, especially with House's current relationship, instead of the unnecessary and boring drama that is his marriage. Congrats to Peter Jacobson for doing a great job with Taub, and here's hoping he gets the screen time he deserves.
The way he decided to screw with House just for the hell of it was amazingly fun to watch. He may be up there with House and Wilson in terms of pure craft and lying ability, so I look forward to seeing him joining in and disrupting their games in the future.
