** Spoilery for 5x23 – Under My Skin and 5x24 - Both Sides Now **
I’m in a Huddy induced frenzy at the moment and nervous about Monday’s finale so I’m hoping that jotting down my thoughts and current insights will help calm me down enough. (I wrote this and 2 other articles. Tells আপনি how antsy I am LOL).
*EDIT - Updated this timeline based on the season finale...a sigh and a ARGH! It's gonna be a LONG summer. :(
This is assuming Cuddy was truthful when she told House she was 38 earlier this season (5x17 – Social Contract).
I worked out this timeline of Huddy. It is now unclear if Cuddy did audit his class based on 5x24.
However this timeline doesn’t quite jive with other info that they have প্রদত্ত to us on the প্রদর্শনী such as House’s bday. Stil, I felt I needed to lay out at least the SEQUENCE of events even if I couldn’t pin down the actual dates (although I did my best using the above assumption). If you’d like to know which eps I got my information from অথবা how I deduced something, let me know.
If I got something wrong অথবা if there is missing information please say so (give corroborating episode if আপনি can) and I’ll try to correct the timeline.
1989 (20 yrs ago) - House and Cuddy meet in college.
Cuddy is an undergraduate at U of Michigan while House is repeating the last বছর of Med School at U of Michigan after being kicked out of John Hopkins for cheating.
Cuddy audits House’s endocrinology class. In which case, they’d have regular interaction for at least 4 months. This part is now not certain based on the season finale.
Cuddy would be 18 (born 1971) yrs old as an undergrad. If House is repeating the last বছর of Med School, he’s approximately 26 (born approx 1963; 8 yrs older than Cuddy. However his প্রদত্ত birth তারিখ is June 11 1959).
There is also some sort of backstory dealing with House and the ডেস্ক in Cuddy’s office which she ব্যক্ত was her ডেস্ক in med school. Med school is after your bachelor’s degree in which case Cuddy would be 22 when she got the desk.
UNLESS Cuddy was in a 7 বছর program (which fits with the fact that she graduated Med School at 25) in which case she could have gotten the ডেস্ক as early as age 19 (after the first বছর of a 7 yr program you’re considered to have gotten your BS and are officially in med school).
1996 (13 yrs ago) – House meets Stacy during a Lawyers vs Doctors paint ball war. This was calculated from Season 2 (3 yrs ago) with the fact they had not seen each other in 5 yrs (+5 yrs) and they were together for 5 yrs (+ another 5 yrs = 13 yrs ago).
Cuddy graduates Med School at age 25 2nd in her class. (38 yrs old – 13 yrs = 25 yrs old)
2001 (8 yrs ago) – House has a misdiagnosed infarction which eventually ends up being Cuddy’s case. It appears as if House and Cuddy had not seen each other for some time at this point but nothing is definite.
Stacy leaves House after his infarction. (Season 2; 3 yrs পূর্বে + 5 yrs of not seeing each other = 8 yrs ago).
2003 (6 years ago) - Cuddy becomes Dean of Medicine at PPTH at age 32 and creates the Dept. of Diagnostics specifically for House. (38 yrs old – 32 yrs old = 6 yrs ago)
2006 (3 years ago; Season 2) – Stacy returns and leaves again.
2007 (2 years ago; Season 3) – Tritter arc.
This is important because I think House started to think of Cuddy in আরো romantic light after she perjured herself to save him. (3x11 – Words and Deeds).
2008/2009 (current; season 5) - House and Cuddy finally চুম্বন in 5x6 (Joy).
House and Cuddy apparently had a one night stand some time in their past.
I think everyone believes it was during their college days but it was never confirmed when it actually occurred. After all, we are missing a big chunk of time from when House and Cuddy were in college to when House and Stacy meet.
