Storyline

House reluctantly takes on the case of Kalvin, a man who is HIV Positive. The HIV medicine he has been taking has greatly improved his immune system but he continues to get sicker. When Kalvin starts coughing up blood, he accidentally coughs some on Cameron and there's a chance she may contract the disease. In the wake of this, he tries to convince Cameron to be a little more free-spirited as the start to a happier life. Meanwhile, in a bid to improve his relationship with Stacy, House makes it his mission to capture a rat that is running around her house. Written by Shiro

A fantastic episode...
29 August 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Dr.House is being stalked by an AIDS positive man (Kalvin), who also happens to be homosexual. As the team delve into the reason behind Kalvin's sudden anaphylactic shock after he fell backwards onto a car, House attempts to get his relationship back on track with Stacy by capturing a rat which has moved into her home. Unbeknownst to Stacy, House has read her file, from her psychologists office, and is doing what he can to subtly separate Stacy and her husband Mark. This is one of my favorite house episodes, partly because of House and his wittiness, and partially because of the rat, who is named Steve McQueen by House. All in all a fantastic episode
