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>

4 September 2006 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

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.
