Storyline

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. Foreman finds it's not easy to be House's boss. Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Dr. Allison Cameron: [to a suspected Munchhausens patient] This is a consent form to stick a wire into your brain. It's important for hospitals to get these signed for procedures that are completely unnecessary.

A woman collapses at an OTB facility that House frequents, and he soon finds himself doing battle with his new boss (Foreman!) over her treatment. Foreman has become House's temporary boss in the aftermath of "The Mistake." And Foreman's well-known prejudice against street people and low lifes comes into play when he suspects the woman's motives. Much of the appeal of this episode is due to the actress playing the stricken woman, the lovely and talented Cynthia Nixon. She is highly convincing as a woman who may or may not be deathly ill, and causes House to get personally involved for a change. They have a great scene together in the third act while seated on a park bench in snowy weather. Wilson meanwhile digs himself into an increasingly deeper hole as he moves in with House.
