At a betting parlor where House happens to be, a woman collapses and House makes sure she gets to the hospital. He thinks she has Cushing's syndrome while Cameron starts to think she has Münchausen syndrome, a syndrome at which the patient creates the symptoms of a disease, guaranteeing them attention and sympathy.

When House talks about his "inside information," he mentions that the jockey purges at the starting gate so that he will weigh less during the race. For one, the jockey "weighs out" before the race and "weighs in" after the race (this is incorrectly stated by House). If a jockey was found to be two pounds less than his assigned weight, he and his horse would be disqualified (a small amount of weight loss for sweat is allowed). See more
