He left unexpectedly from the cast of House M.D because he was going to attend to the presidential election campaign. in the middle of a season. His leaving created one of the worst made character deaths in television history.

And for that, he is a fagarooski

I really didn't mind it.

I think it would have been better if they did something where the character lived and had the potential to come back, like he was getting deported or something.

But beyond that, it wasn't bad. Many critics hailed it as realistic, if unnecessary.

Howd they kill him off?
I'm curious.
User avatar #18 to #16 - Crusader (08/05/2014) [-]
They had him commit suicide.

Some people said that it was just for the shock factor and didn't add to the show.
Other people said that while it wasn't necessary, it was realistic.

His character, Dr. Lawrence Kutner was a goofball, he set a patient on fire, he messed up tests, but he was a good doctor. He has a heart of Gold and was the funny guy. Over a few episodes he stopped being his normal jovial self and it ended in his suicide.

It didn't even show his suicide, he simply didn't show up to work, so two coworkers went to his apartment, found him dead with a gunshot wound to the head and a pistol.

When House goes to his apartment later, instead of the funeral, he notices that all of his pictures have him smiling, except the most recent one, implying that he recently grew depressed.

Personally, I like it because it's one of the things that soon becomes associated with House's deteriorating mental status due to his addiction that finally sends him into rehab, but the connection goes largely unnoticed.

The last couple of minutes of that episode were tear-jerking imo   
   
Episode is called 'Simple Explanation ' if anyone wants to know.

he set a patient on fire, he messed up tests, but he was a good doctor, what exactly makes him a good doctor if he screws up so much
User avatar #96 to #30 - Crusader (08/05/2014) [-]
Great bed-side manner, amazing diagnostician, to the point that he even surprised House, all member have ****** up tests, and burning the patient was a single incident from which he learned to be a better Doctor.
#36 to #30 - anon (08/05/2014) [-]
I think when he set the patient on fire he was in an oxygen rich room so when he used the defibrillator on him he saved the patient's life but the sparks also set him on fire.
Also I think in the show everyone seems to mess up tests according to Dr. House.
#37 to #36 - karrotj (08/05/2014) [-]
yeah i remember that scene, just saying bad idea to call someone a good doctor while listing misleading qualities first :p
User avatar #49 to #37 - penileburglar (08/05/2014) [-]
Hence the word 'but' to show that he was contradicting the earlier statement. That was the entire point of that sentence, he was a goofball who ****** stuff up occasionally but his good qualities made up for it.
#50 to #49 - karrotj (08/05/2014) [-]
i actually meant the original comment lol
User avatar #51 to #50 - penileburglar (08/05/2014) [-]
...The original comment didn't say anything like that.

There was only one that did (#18), and that's obviously the comment I was referring to. The one you directly replied to and clearly referenced.
#52 to #51 - anon (08/05/2014) [-]
And it still made him sound like an incompetent doctor that sometimes lucked into getting things right
User avatar #54 to #52 - penileburglar (08/05/2014) [-]
Just because your reading comprehension is off doesn't mean everyone else's is.
#99 to #54 - karrotj (08/06/2014) [-]
Lets put it this way, anyone who had a chance to have him as a doctor would think he was a horrible doctor and wouldnt let him get near them if they knew he messed up tests and caught a patient on fire
User avatar #101 to #99 - penileburglar (08/06/2014) [-]
I don't believe he was trying to sell an IMAGINARY TV DOCTOR to you, I believe he was describing a character from the show in order to give context to this scene.
#102 to #101 - karrotj (08/06/2014) [-]
yes, and it was still a contradiction, if a good doctor is one who sets people on fire and screws up then im glad i dont go to the doctor
User avatar #103 to #102 - penileburglar (08/06/2014) [-]
It was supposed to be a contradiction, that's exactly what the word 'but' is for. It means his other qualities make up for it. Once again, we're talking about a T.V. show, not a real live doctor. He was in 'diagnostic medicine' so his job was to figure out what's wrong when no one else could and save lives, and if he was damn good at it at saved more lives than the other doctors in that position, that's more important than mistakes he made along the way.
#104 to #103 - karrotj (08/06/2014) [-]
BUT his other qualities do not make up for it, if anyone knew his bad qualities along with his good then the bad still outweigh the good. A thousand thataboys are outdone by one oh **** .
User avatar #105 to #104 - penileburglar (08/06/2014) [-]
...No, they don't. You obviously don't even know the character.

His diagnostic abilities saved lives regardless of the screw-ups he made along the way. None of those screw-ups ever took anyone's life.

I'll take the doctor who might set me on fire, but will save my life over the one with perfect bedside manner who will let me die any day. Fire may be scary, but death is a lot scarier.
#106 to #105 - karrotj (08/06/2014) [-]
I do know the character, what the hell im saying is is that if his patients knew him as well as we did they wouldnt let him touch them for fear of dying
User avatar #120 to #106 - penileburglar (08/06/2014) [-]
Losing your job doesn't mean you were bad at it, it just means you lost it. Your firefighter analogy doesn't really work, since Kutner never actually hurt anybody and certainly didn't intentionally do anything bad, and what he got in the end was right answers and living patients. Your analogy doesn't work, because Kutner never actually hurt anyone with his mistakes and never did anything malicious.

Saving lives and quality of life is *all* that makes you a good doctor. What other people think of you might determine whether or not you are allowed to *continue* being a doctor at all, but it doesn't actually determine whether or not you were good at the job, only whether or not they *thought* you were good at the job. This conversation's getting pretty pointless, since the entire basis of your argument is 'if people think you are something, than you are, regardless of how misinformed or limited their perspective is.' There's really no continuing to argue with you if you're actually delusional enough to believe that, so I'm not wasting any more time here, have a good one.
#121 to #120 - karrotj (08/07/2014) [-]
your saying getting burned isnt getting hurt? And your missing my point, if you lose your job then you no longer have a job being a doctor, even though your still a doctor your not doing the job cause you dont have the job anymore aka your a bad doctor now for not doing your job cause you lost it
User avatar #117 to #106 - penileburglar (08/06/2014) [-]
Saving lives and quality of life is what matters if you're talking about whether or not he's a good doctor. Other people's opinions may effect his job, but they don't change whether or not he was a good doctor. It's a T.V. show, not a real doctor--we see everything about the character. You only need to take other peoples' opinions into account when your own perspective is limited or might be limited. Ours is not, since this is a T.V. character and not a real doctor--we can literally see everything about his life because he doesn't exist outside of the story of the show.
#119 to #117 - karrotj (08/06/2014) [-]
amazing, we have been arguing for almost 24 hours lol
#118 to #117 - karrotj (08/06/2014) [-]
Yes but to save lives you have to have patients, and if noone with let you see them because you ****** up and set someone on fire then you are no longer a good doctor. Thats like saying the badguy in backdraft was a good firefighter, im sure he was but since he set a few fires himself he was a horrible one. Be a doctor and catch someone on fire, become horrible doctor in patients eyes, lose patients, become horrible doctor, case closed.
User avatar #115 to #106 - penileburglar (08/06/2014) [-]
I'm aware. That's completely irrelevant.

We weren't talking about 'from a patients point of view.' He's a T.V. character, so we get the top-down, unbiased 'god view' of him, and we were talking about whether or not he was a good doctor. You're just trying to change the subject because you don't actually have a defense for trying to say that he was a bad doctor.
#116 to #115 - karrotj (08/06/2014) [-]
Its completely relavent, you cant say someones good at something without also taking into account if other people feel he is, especially in the medical field where others opinions is all that matters
User avatar #113 to #106 - penileburglar (08/06/2014) [-]
Okay. No one ever said that people are idiots, or that people without proper perspective would *agree* that he was a good doctor. The statement was simply that he was a good doctor despite his mistakes, and that statement was true. What 'idiot' patients think isn't relevant.
#114 to #113 - karrotj (08/06/2014) [-]
And i infered that from a patients point of view no matter how good a doctor he is, he is still not a very good one because he did those things
User avatar #111 to #106 - penileburglar (08/06/2014) [-]
You don't seem to even understand what kind of doctor he is.

He's not the one who comes in to check your cough. He's behind the scenes putting the puzzle pieces together to figure out what's wrong with you. And it's a TELEVISION SHOW, we're not talking about a real flesh-and-blood doctor, of course they're going to exaggerate things like that for T.V. That's what a drama is, you keep trying to compare him to a real-world doctor and that simply doesn't work, because real-world doctors are too boring for a T.V. drama. And the sentence didn't say anywhere he ' ****** up and set a patient on fire.' He set a patient on fire to save their life.

And you need to calm down, brah. If you can't manage a civil conversation, then I don't really have any interest in talking to you, you seem to be a very unpleasant person.
#112 to #111 - karrotj (08/06/2014) [-]
I know, but there were other episodes that when a patient found some dirt they refused to let the doctor treat them, there was even one who wouldnt let eric work on him because he was black! People are idiots
User avatar #109 to #106 - penileburglar (08/06/2014) [-]
Fire bad. Dying worse.
User avatar #107 to #106 - penileburglar (08/06/2014) [-]
'For fear of dying'? He never killed anyone, so you obviously don't know the character.
#110 to #107 - karrotj (08/06/2014) [-]
Ugh you ******* retard, just because he hasnt actually killed anyone a patient wants someone with a perfect track record, any blemish at all will cause the patient to fear death. I know even if im going to get a cough checked out if i knew that my doctor had ****** up and caught someone on fire i wouldnt let them touch me. Its human ******* nature
#108 to #107 - karrotj (08/06/2014) [-]
but fire bad, FIRE BAD!
#100 to #99 - karrotj (08/06/2014) [-]

Do the kids know that? She didn't talk about her work at all. She just read a book. If she was talking about, or showing what she does as a job, I would understand. But she just read. Why get so mad about that?

The Queen still withholds the right and power to declare war on any country when she feels like it without consulting the Government, any of the House of Lords, or the Prime Minister. The Queen can also compltely dissolve the Government at any time if need be.   
   
She can also legally annex any of the 53 Member nations within the Commonwealth, imprison anyone within the United Kingdom indefinitely without reason ("At Her Majesty's pleasure"), and is the highest prosecuting force in the UK, hence the legal name for cases being "X vs The Crown".    
Thank 			****		 she isn't evil.

This is all correct. Everyone seems to think she's a powerless figurehead, but she's actually extremely powerful, but chooses not to exercise that power. Also, the Prime Minister must speak to her once a week to tell her what he plans to work on that week.

Correction: he is an associate director. His full title is "Associate Director of Public Engagement (Youth, Arts and Asian American & Pacific Islander Communities)." In other words, if you're Asian American, a Pacific Islander, a youth, or an art advocate, and curious about Obama's positions relevant to you, he's your guy. Still impressive for an actor.

So he's the one who has these 'changes the subject' actions whenever something (like the VA hospitals being abandoned for the prisoner exchange, or the Healthcare lull passed off by Lybia) becomes difficult for the President to address?
