I'm Dreaming of a White House Christmas

Just started rewatching Season 1 of The West Wing. House M.D. is the only show I've seen since that even comes close to the brilliance and pace of its dialogue (and in a totally different way, at that). They also share the single take walk-and-talk thing that I love so much (Josh and Sam are so House and Wilson, at least in this).

Also? Lisa E. is great as the law student/call girl with whom Sam accidentally sleeps ("Did you trip over something?") and then tries to reform. Much as I'm hating the Huddy arc, I really am glad that Shore et al. appreciated her performance enough to bring her onto their show.

Wouldn't a crossover (flashback, presumably) be super fun? (I'm not volunteering, mind. I don't know why I never felt compelled to write fic for WW; possibly I was simply too intimidated.)

I loved the West Wing, brilliant dialogue even if I never understood a lot of it:) But like you never wanted to write any fiction for it...

Pretty sure I've read a crossover somewhere with Cuddy being the law student in her past though I can't remember details (and I'm not sure how she could have a law degree and a medical degree and still be boss of the hospital at age 35 or whatever it was).

Ha ha, she supposedly applied for her current position at age 29 according to "Small Sacrifices." Completely ridiculous. So I doubt that she also has a law degree in her past (although frankly it might be even more useful than the M.D., given everything House gets up to). Maybe a sister or cousin, though? :)

29! I must have missed that, no wonder she's not much of a doctor, she skipped all of that practical experience stuff and went straight to administering :)

I found the story and the author changed it from laurie being a laws student to being a medical student - it looks like a massive House/Cuddy romance with a sequel where they go to Josh and Donnas wedding....

This is good though if you haven't read it - short and cracky but with good dialogue

Ha ha, yep, I've read that one. I especially like the second part with House and Wilson. Hee, the allusion to Dead Poets Society :).

Although wouldn't it be awesome if House actually did diagnose Bartlett as having something other than MS just from watching his TV appearances? (But I hope that he wouldn't try to kidnap him. The Secret Service probably wouldn't take that very well.)
