Richard. They show photos of Kutner as a child and recall when he came
to live with them after going through a tragedy at such a young age.
House tells them that Kutner had no idea what his identity was supposed
to be. He was immersed in an Anglo world when he was born Lawrence
Choudhary. Julia explains that they tried to encourage him to retain
his heritage and that it was Kutner's idea to take their last name. Yet
House presses on, accusing the parents of shutting out their son's pain
and not understanding him. Julia begins to tear up and Richard's anger
rises. Foreman yells at House to leave, which jars House from his rant.
I don't watch the show, so I don't know if Kutner's status as a transracial adoptee has been a recurring theme in the show or not. But I thought it was interesting that there would even be any discussion about identity based on being "immersed in an Anglo world."
