Storyline

Adorable teenager Keith Foster suddenly starts bleeding terribly during a ride with dad's Porsche his cheeky girlfriend Pam got him to let her steer. Loving widowed father Foster fears ex-junkie Pam got his good boy on drugs, but Keith tests clean, yet shows a confusing set of symptoms, mainly liver-problems. After various negative tests, either hyper-rare hepatitis E -possibly caught on foreign travels- or lupus (immunity turning against the patient himself) seem likely. Chase cleverly manages to save his eye which suddenly went blind from blood cluttering. House, who is even grumpier and ruder after accepting a dare from Cuddy to earn a week off clinic duty by going a week without his painkiller to make sure he's not getting addicted, holds out on medication for lupus as it would render hepatitis incurable, alas needlessly for so long the boy now needs a liver transplant, but also insists to elaborate Keith's apparent hallucination about being tortured by a certain Jules, which ...

Goofs

The car that the teenagers were driving was a 2005 911 Carrera. It has 4 wheel Anti-lock brakes standard. Porsche brakes are well known for their tremendous stopping ability and resistance to fading. The stunt car's ABS system had obviously been disabled. The 911 should have stopped straight and true with absolutely no skidding. See more »

Difficult to watch, and truly excellent
26 March 2006 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

When I look back, I believe this is the first episode I saw of HOUSE. A college student is admitted with conflicting symptoms, not the least of which is uncontrolled bleeding. This episode goes right for the gut and we watch House and his colleagues poke and prod this kid to the point of death. I had trouble watching all of it, as it took me back to my days working first as an emergency room orderly and later as a floating nurse's aide in a large city hospital when I was a mere teen. You haven't lived until you've seen a doctor straddle a suffocating patient and plunge a large stainless steel cylinder into his chest to alleviate fluid on the lungs. This episode of HOUSE is so realistic, it reminds me of those good old days -- may they never return. This also is the episode where House is sort-of blackmailed into giving up his painkillers. You'll have to watch for yourself to see if he does.
