Storyline

Teenage competition diver Mary Carroll overcomes her fear and plunges to see all eyes are averted- to her fatherly coach Stahl, who collapsed bleeding. He's brought in and the pool and hospital quarantined, as his symptoms and soon those of a flood of others indicate a meningitis epidemic. Dr. Robert Chase may have the best ideas by far and the steadiest hand, he still is in the dog-house and gets landed with endless chores, including an epic Internet search after House found Mary's case is probably not just meningitis, while Foreman gets the interesting practice and even his breaks. Meanwhile Cuddy not only makes House stay and help screening the flood of possibly infected people like everyone else in such an emergency, but orders him and his only friend Wilson to interview candidates to replace Dr. Allison Cameron, but Gregory's creativity to reject even the most suitable on dubious 'indications' such as footwear makes James conclude it's all Freudian.

Trivia

While House is looking at his dry erase board after the girl's cranial surgery, it shows "intercranial hemorrage" and should read "intercranial hemorrhage." See more »

Goofs

In addition to the difference in white-board spelling of "hemorrhage" from one scene to the next, the spelling of "intercranial" is also corrected to "intracranial" as the adjective describing that hemorrhage on the white board. See more »

The eyes can mislead, a smile can lie, but the shoes always tell the truth.
7 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Now this is what I am talking about: an outbreak of meningitis with an understaffed hospital that requires the entire team of doctors and nurses to check patients, a 12-year-old diver with seizures that can't be explained, and interviews for Cameron's position after she quit.

All of this makes for some very interesting medicine. Using old equipment, because they can't get to the new stuff, using procedures that were replaced by the CAT scan, meeting in bathrooms, and discovering something in the blood that you would never expect in a 12-year-old, they manage to get the girl cured, the exposed people out the door, and, yes, House finds a way to get Cameron back.

Marvelous!
