Storyline

Cuddy pushes her asthmatic handyman Alfredo to continue working. He falls and badly wounds his hand. Alas the infection spreads and causes necrosis while House and she bicker over the possible causes and risky treatments, which keep making it worse. Even two house searches don't clarify matters. Alfredo must keep several poor jobs to put his kid brother, Manny, through school, which has a surprising relevance. Written by KGF Vissers

A team effort
26 August 2006 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

Not one of my favorite episodes, "Humpty" sees Cuddy's overworked, asthmatic handyman falling off her roof and exhibiting far worse effects than the fall and a mild case of asthma would seem to indicate. Cuddy plays a prominent role in the story as it unfolds, as she feels guilty for having pushed the guy too hard. The solution to his illness is a bit far-fetched, and the fact that he is an illegal and there are litigious implications in his treatment only serve to complicate matters. And cause me to quickly lose interest. Be advised: the episode contains some rather graphic amputation footage. At the very least, "Humpty" plays to my feeling that not every patient should be able to just get up and walk away at the end.
