Did You Know?

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 »
Continuity: When Elyse falls into a coma in front of Cameron and Ed (Elyse's husband), three wire leads and her oxygen tube cross over her left shoulder and up over her pillow by her head, but when the camera does an overhead shot of Elyse, they follow the bottom of the pillow on top of her shoulder. This change of position happens twice again.See more »
Ed Snow:Why would sh-she lie if she knew it could kill her?
Dr. Gregory House:I don't ask why patients lie. I just assume they all do.

I didn't realize it was possible for a woman to be 'unusually' irritable., 6 September 2008
Author: lastliberal from United States

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.
