Everyone Lies... To Their Parents

At least, that seems to be the premise of tonight's ep of House:

Everybody wants to know what makes Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) so cranky. Clues to the medical sleuth's permanent malcontent status emerge on tonight's "House" when we get to meet his mom and dad.

This solid episode explores the games of deception and avoidance many adult children play with their parents. A great throwaway line from Dr. Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) reveals the show's running theme. When asked if she lies to her mother, she flippantly replies, "Ever since I was 12."
