Storyline

Ted Dalton brings in his domineering wife Margo, a hyperactive entrepreneur and housewife committed to a demanding fertility treatment, with uncontrollable spasms. In order to complete the diagnosis and save her life, he must face a secret she holds dearer than life. Meanwhile he forces Cameron to face her HIV test. After an affair with the hospital lawyer, Stacy Warner, they could have a future together. This can only happen if she divorces her husband Mark, who is in a wheelchair but knows about their adultery and desperately wants her back. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Dr. Gregory House: [House wants to discharge a patient] We're done. Get rid of her!
Dr. Eric Foreman: We're not done! We have to confirm the diagnosis before we send her home to die of something else!
Dr. Gregory House: [looks Foreman in the eye] Oh, yes... the power tastes so sweet! You just can't resist! You're like a diabetic at the ice cream counter, you want to say no, but you *need* that chocolatey goodness!
Dr. Eric Foreman: Yeah, well, I'm still signing the charts. So until tomorrow, you're not allowed to kill anyone.
[walks away]
Dr. Gregory House: Wuss!

How deceitful
4 September 2006 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

Julie (DOC Hollywood) Warner adds some real class to an episode that has more than its share of bizarre occurrences. The episode's title NEED TO KNOW fits more than just Warner as a so-called supermom who has built up a wall of lies the team must break through in order to save her from herself. It also refers to Cameron's hesitancy to take her HIV test as the result of a mishap in the AIDS patient episode. House really lets his temper fly with Warner, in a manner we haven't seen pretty much since the pilot episode, when he locked horns with another terrific actress, Robin (THE CRAFT) Tunney. Hugh Laurie, himself a movie actor, often seems to play best against fellow movie performers.
