Storyline

Loving hunky husband Ed Snow brings in Elise, who slapped him for pushing her to get up after three days in bed and admits she's out of control. Her hallucinations are just a side-effect of what works out must be a rare, hidden brain tumor or African sleeping disease, but either therapy is extremely dangerous. Samantha Campbell visits House's clinic with poisoning symptoms and fabulous breast implants 'for her husband's 40th birthday', but House elaborates his own theory... All possible causes for the African bug are excluded, except one: either spouse could catch it from adultery; when she reacts badly to the other therapy after both deny being a risk factor, Ed must decide whether to have her treated for it, and shows surprising instincts...

Trivia

When brainstorming about the patients condition, House makes a reference to how much she is sleeping and says that they should check for evil stepmothers. That much sleep usually requires poisoned apples. Jennifer Morrison would go on to play the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming in Once Upon A Time starting in 2011. See more »

I didn't realize it was possible for a woman to be 'unusually' irritable.
6 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What price fidelity? Would you let your spouse die rather than admit that they may have been unfaithful? Is fidelity an unforgivable crime? These questions come up as a woman (Myndy Crist) is diagnosed with African Sleeping sickness. The problem is that neither she nor her husband have been to Africa. So one had to be unfaithful. Which one? House (Hugh Laurie) is again trying different treatments as people lie to him. Someone has to come clean. Then they have to deal with the aftereffects. Can you remain with a spouse that cheated on you? Is love incapable of dealing with a mistake? The story of fidelity raises some very interesting questions.
