Diagnosing House: My Farewell to Dr. Cuddy: A Look Back Through Some Highlights
Dr. Lisa Cuddy was a major character on House for the first seven seasons. Although she is not in a relationship she has been artificially inseminated twice, but both ended in Biography Edit Her father was Jewish from birth, but her mother was a Catholic who converted to Judaism when Arlene married Cuddy's father. The episodes where I thought the House/Cuddy relationship worked best I hope I'm wrong, but a married House just does not compute and. And this is no more truer than for Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) and Dr. Lisa Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein), whose relationship I'm still not over.
The debate seems to pop up where House, M.House & Cuddy - First Kiss
Click in to see the battle, and then you be the judge However, though many might say that it doesn't exist on a romantic level, their story has been told subtly, which makes their relationship unique. It is through interactions with Cameron that we see glimpses of House's humanity. House has shared some of the most intimate details of his life with Cameron, such as revealing to her willingly what his parents are like and describing his relationship with them.
We have seen him be sincere and caring without prompting another character, exemplified when House says to Cameron that he is proud of her and also when Cameron disclosed to House about her husband in college. House has always given his most endearing and intense looks to Cameron—whether it is in the hallway in "No Reason" or the look they share when Cameron helps House with his arm sling in "Whac-A-Mole.

Cameron has accepted House for who he is and has defended him numerous times to her fellow ducklings and even to Wilson and Cuddy, who always have plans for teaching House humility—Cameron to Cuddy: I would love to watch a relationship between these two unique characters and see how much more we can learn about them and how their relationship will blossom.
And if all else fails, we just have to remember that House kissed back! They are intelligent, quick-witted, passionate and, perhaps most importantly, they carry quite the healthy respect for one another. Little about them is sappy. They know where they stand in the world and aren't afraid to speak their minds.
The only thing I hate about their story is that it was only able to last pages. Therefore, one must turn to modern couples on television to fill the void that Benedick and Beatrice have left behind. As it happens, I've only found one such couple to sate my need for snappy snark: Gregory House and Lisa Cuddy. While I respect and understand the other House ships, it's very hard for me to imagine House with anyone but Cuddy No one has come closer than Cuddy to understanding how House's mind works—not even Wilson, as was evident after House's ketamine treatment and during the Tritter drama.
She gets that he's never going to fit the mold, no matter how hard anyone tries to get him to, and she respects that. And how could anyone doubt the love Cuddy has for House after that smile at the end of the episode "Ugly"? Or how she was holding his hand at the end of "Wilson's Heart"?
And House loves Cuddy. He keeps her secrets, as we saw during her baby arc. However, production was halted by the — Writers Guild of America strikewhich delayed the remainder of the season. So I'm out there picketing. So they planted that seed in the character's story so it would be possible for me as a woman to experience that.
The tension and chemistry are still there. Neither one of them is actively fessing-up to looking for a relationship, but they are drawn to each other. None of the flirtatiousness is going to go away.
The stakes are very high for them. The attraction is still there. We are absolutely going to continue that. It's real and it's palpable. And it's who they are. Although they are cordial they tend to hide things from each other. As Cuddy had misgivings about House meeting her mother for a long time and how her mother hid an affair she was having for the past five years.
But they are close; they have gone through a lot together. Might there be a moment of weakness in which the two might explore their chemistry? She wouldn't forgive him over and over again if he wasn't so brilliant in her eyes, clearly she's got a soft spot for him. And he has one for her.
You will continue to see that. We can't have them dancing around forever. Obviously House has feelings for her. In the closing minutes of the episode, House came very close to relapsing and taking vicodin once again, at which point Cuddy entered to tell him that she had ended her relationship with Lucas. She professed her love for House, which led to them kissing briefly.
A close-up shot of their clasped hands House's left, Cuddy's right was the closing shot of the episode, as well as the season. The relationship later ends in season 7; in the episode " Bombshells ". How Edelstein can play this in a believable way is the point where acting moves from skill to art. The sexual tension, one hopes, is still in there somewhere. Cuddy is done trying to squelch him; now she is just shooting for managed chaos. Which is so much more fun because it revolves more around the medicine and less around all the personal pathos of the staff.
Shamefully, I would have been overjoyed if the season finale had ended with House and Cuddy electing to spend the summer together in Corsica.
And yet I would mostly have wondered if House and Cuddy were going to make time for a stop in Sardinia. I feel like a one-night stand who is never going to get calla lilies or a follow-up phone call.
I feel hate for the show and I feel begrudging respect. What would we really have done if House and Cuddy had woken up together, if he'd made her waffles, if she had eaten them wearing one of his shirts, if they spent the next day exchanging coy, knowing glances at Princeton-Plainsboro Hospital?
Then we would have been watching Grey's Anatomy and we would have experienced not a jump-the-shark moment, but a bungee-jumping-the-Arctic moment. House refuses to buy into the myth that a good woman can save an ornery jerk, and the finale made it clear what a dope you were to even think the show would try.
It doesn't want to appease the woman who wants to appease her Harlequin Romance self. It wants to appease anyone who gets ticked off when a romantic comedy shows an accomplished woman in a skirt suit giving it all up for a jobless, slovenly idiot. The House-Cuddy attraction isn't an attraction of opposites. It's an attraction between two highly intelligent workaholics, two people too interesting for anyone else but ultimately unfit for each other—no matter how pathetically we'd like it to be otherwise.
