House Wiki

Jay-Bird is one of the patients in Ward 6 of the Mayfield Psychiatric Hospital in the Season 6 premiere episode Broken. He was portrayed by actor Alex Desert.

Gregory House first met Jay-Bird in group therapy. Jay-Bird was anxious and kept expressing a desire to go outside. House quickly guessed, correctly, that he suffered from claustrophobia.

Later, while they were outside playing basketball, House took advantage of this fact to crowd Jay-Bird on the court and say things about closing in on him, causing Jay-Bird to collapse from his anxiety.

However, Jay-Bird and House got along better after that. They had no further difficulties with each other.

Jay-Bird was one of the patients who sang "You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Loves You" at the talent show, along with Richter and Hal Connor.
