Lies my father told me
26 March 2006 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

While the episode in question appears to be about a young man who is suffering from a perplexing symptoms after blacking out on the lacrosse field, it is really about the lies people tell. By the conclusion, House has determined the nature of the kid's illness but with no thanks to his deceitful parents, who harbor what they consider a terrible secret. House makes them understand their prevaricating could have killed their son. In this way, the episode is not dissimilar to the one about a sickly kid whose father harbors a terrible secret that could cost the boy his life. Meanwhile, in the clinic, House treats a sickly baby whose mother has decided not to vaccinate it. She does not get off easily, and we some real passion on the part of House.
