I'll have a huge scar. I won't be able to wear a bikini!
6 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The pressure increases on House to fire one of his staff. Unfortunately, it isn't going to be easy, as any choice he makes is going to be rejected by Vogler. It is a battle for control and Vogler does not intend to lose.

I the meantime House has to solve the problem of a morbidly obese 10-year-old girl who has lesions that will require a double mastectomy.

He also sees a woman in the clinic with a 30-lb tumor, who refuses to have it removed because it will leave a scar. Her excuse is blown by House and that problem is easily solved.

He still has to fire someone.
