I checked him out, he's a great doctor, you think he's better then I am.

Leave it to House to ignore a DNR to save a patients life. It is just what you would expect.

Harry Lennix (Ray, The Matrix Reloaded) guest stars as a famous jazz musician who just wants to die because he can't play anymore. He comes up against House who can't do anything but treat his patients. The question becomes who's will is stronger.

House ends up in court, but manages to solve the case in his usual fashion while he fights to keep Foreman from running off with a slick talking doctor from L.A.

Also features Brandy.
