On his editor's retirement party, famous author Fletcher Stone collapses and hits his head. The staff has their work cut out for them trying to find out what's wrong with Stone because he has agraphia and aphasia. Besides that, House is out of town. He and Stacy are in Baltimore to meet the Medicaid review officer. Due to bad weather, all flights are canceled so House and Stacy are stuck on the airport. Luckily, as a precaution, Stacy booked a room in a near-by hotel for both her and House. Written by

When trying to decipher what the aphasic patient meant by the phrase "tackle the bear", Foreman asks him if he meant 'bear' or 'bare'. This does not make sense because, as Foreman himself explained earlier, the patient's jumbled words sound completely normal to himself.
