Storyline

Adam is brought in by his dad Doug after a freaky explosion accident while they were motorcycling which left the adolescent with massive burns. Adam gets surprising cardiac neurological complications and even an orgasm. House however leaves Adam largely to his students as he insists on attending a lecture, disguised. He is determined to expose Dr. Phillip Weber, a lecturer on his migraine drug research, as a bad scientist. House harbors twenty years of belated revenge for a cheating incident at Johns Hopkins, by Dr. Weber, which cost House an internship while they were students there. Adam gets brain problems, but after an unethical test on a comatose patient House, who has swallowed his medicine, takes charge himself. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Dr Wilson greets House with the comment "Dr. Jekyll I presume." That's two obscure references in one. "Dr. Livingston I presume" is the apocryphal greeting that Stanley used when he finally located Dr. Livingston in Africa. And Dr. Jekyll ill-advisedly tested an experimental drug on himself, just as House did in this episode. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: [goes into House's office] Hey! Did you drop acid?

Tragedy upon tragedy
4 September 2006 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

A teenager is badly burned in an ATV accident, and House and his team race to save the kid's life as a lot more is going on than just body burns. Here's where HOUSE ups the ante set by ER. Scenes with the horribly burned youth become extremely graphic, as we watch the ministrations to the kid's body in close-up. We also see House make a sudden decision to bathe the kid in maggots in order to speed up the healing process. It's quite a scene, and not for the faint of heart. The young actor playing the burn victim is quite convincing, especially when House momentarily rouses him from his medically-induced coma to try to find out something. Many scenes in this episode are cringe-inducing, and will not be for everyone. The ending is one of the biggest tear-jerkers of the series to date, although it may not be the ending you expect.
