Storyline

A jazz musician is brought to the hospital after collapsing during a recording session. His doctor is Foreman's mentor who diagnosed the musician as having ALS. Under Foreman's care, the man signs a DNR (do not resuscitate) form, which House ignores when he gets worse, thinking the diagnosis incorrect. While House wrangles over legal issues in court, Foreman's mentor offers him a job working for him. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com/revised by statmanjeff

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.
