Before he's supposed to testify against the Mafia and get into a witness protection program, mobster Joey Arnello collapses. It's not sure whether he's faking it or if he's really in a coma and House gets court ordered to find out. While he and his team do their best to find out what's going on with Joey, Joey's brother Bill tries to keep Joey in the hospital so he won't testify while Cuddy tries to convince Vogler House is an essential part of the hospital. In the clinic, House comes across a kid who has stuck toys up his nose while his older brother wasn't watching. Written by

When talking about Joey during his first coma, they say he is "an 8 on the Glasgow scale", which is "almost dead". In reality, an 8 on the scale indicates some degree of: movement in response to pain; eye opening in response to pain; and/or vocal response. A 3 on the scale could be classed as "almost dead", but not an 8. See more
