Storyline

A nun arrives at the clinic with what appears to be a skin rash caused by an allergy, and starts to go into anaphylactic shock in reaction to the medication Dr. House gives her. When he then gives her an injection of epinephrine, she goes into cardiac arrest, leading Dr. Cuddy to assume that House gave her an accidental overdose. Absolutely sure that he gave the patient the correct dosage, House begins a series of unorthodox treatments to uncover the truth, and also does a bit of snooping into the sister's past. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Goofs

When Sister Augustine is in bed, Dr. Chase reaches for her left wrist to take her pulse. Her oxygen tube, and several heart monitor leads are draped over the right shoulder and pillow. As he takes her pulse, only the oxygen tube is on the right, and the heart monitor leads are now draped on her left side. No heart monitor is ever visible. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Eric Foreman: You are aware of the Hippocratic oath, right?
Dr. Gregory House: The one that starts, "First, do no harm", then goes on to tell us: no abortions, no seductions, and definitely no cutting of those who labor beneath the stone? Yeah, took a read once. Wasn't impressed.

You've got a better shot betting on me than Him.
6 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Elizabeth Mitchell ("Lost", 3: The Dale Earnhardt Story, The Santa Clause 2) plays Sister Mary Augustine, who came in with what looked like a simple allergic reaction.

The whole issue of nuns, belief in God, and belief that House may make mistakes comes up at various times.

What was interesting was the fact that the solution came in the patient's past life. The initial story was not the whole truth as it usually isn't Everybody lies, as House always says. Once the lie is exposed, then a solution is found.

Faith may be a wonderful thing, but reality is what gets us through life.
