Storyline

16-year-old Keith Foster suddenly starts bleeding while joy-riding with his cheeky girlfriend Pam behind the wheel of his dad's Porsche. Mr. Foster fears ex-junkie Pam got his good boy on drugs. Keith tests clean yet shows a confusing set of symptoms, including blood clots, hemophilia, liver failure, vomiting and hallucinations. After various negative tests and Chase's success at preventing him going blind, only hyper-rare hepatitis E (possibly caught on foreign travels) or lupus (immunity turning against the patient himself) seem likely. House, grumpier than usual, remains increasingly distracted due to a wager with Cuddy: one month off clinic duty for one week off Vicodin (to prove he's no addict). Through his haze of pain, House comes upon a possible clue to Keith's life-threatening ailment- a death in the family no one felt worthy of mention. Written by KGF Vissers/revised by statmanjeff

Trivia

About 21 minutes in, as House and his team discuss possible diagnoses, there's a bag of "Wawa" brand coffee behind House, although it's blotted out, probably due to brand copyrights. The medical establishment that serves as the setting of House MD is in Princeton, NJ, and Wawa's are popular convenience stores that are spread throughout the tri-state area (NJ, PA, DE) and also in Maryland.

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.
