Trivia

Hugh Laurie is known to have fooled many people (unintentionally) with his made-to-order American accent. However, in this episode, at about the 8:00 mark, he opines: "...either way, this kid's gonna be picking up his diploma in diapers and a wheelchair." His accent fails just enough to say, "...either way, this kid's gonna be picking up his diplomer in diapahs and a wheelchaih." See more »

Goofs

In the lacrosse match in the opening moments there is a flipped shot and the name TARTANS was displayed mirrored. See more »

It's dangerous, it could kill him. You should do it.
6 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Peter O'Fallon directs this episode featuring Scott Mechlowicz (Peaceful Warrior) as a 16-year-old who has night terrors.

Despite several attempts at finding what it wrong, all the attention focuses on a bet House (Hugh Laurie) makes that the father is not the father. It is only when that is resolved that they discover the boy has a disease that only about 20 people a year get.

One of the best things about watching the earl episodes of House is his time in the clinic. Here he really shows his sarcastic humor and it is often the best part of the show.

His interaction with Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) is also great here.
