Storyline

Schoolboy Matt Davis collapses during an exam with serious poisoning symptoms. House supposes drugs or a 'substitute', arrogant mother Margo Davis won't consider either theory. Octogenarian Georgia Adams is brought in by her son with mental symptoms he can barely believe the cause of, actually 60 years old... It takes all House's cynicism to make Matt's mean bossy ma consent to therapy for an insecticide Matt presumably sprayed, but then Chi Ling is brought in with the same symptoms, no insecticide, their only contact was the school bus, even there every toxic trail runs dead. But both boys dressed for exams and college interviews... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

While house is examining Georgia she mentions has a crush on Ashton Kutcher. Kutcher and John Patrick Amedori, who plays Matt Davis in this episode, both played the character of Evan Treborn (albeit at different ages) in The Butterfly Effect (2004). See more »

Goofs

When Chase and Cameron are checking the bus for poison, it says "Plainsboro Unified School District" on the side. New Jersey does not have Unified School Districts. Plainsboro High is part of the West Windsor-Plainsboro Regional School District (which is what it actually says on the buses). Unified School Districts are used in only a handful of states - including California, where most of the exterior shots were filmed. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Gregory House: I assume "minimal at best" is your stiff upper lip British way of saying "no chance in hell"?
Dr. Robert Chase: I'm Australian.
Dr. Gregory House: You put the Queen on your money. You're British.

Oh, they're just the arrogant jerks that saved your life.
6 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Roxanne Hart (License to Wed, Art School Confidential) is an overbearing mother that complicates the treatment of her son who passed out while taking a test.

The diagnoses are difficult until they find the clue to what was wrong, and she is questioning everything and refusing to allow treatment until she checks with the CDC. Chicanery and bluntness are the norm in this interesting case.

Foreman (Omar Epps) seems to be becoming more like House every day.

Along with the main case, House is treating a woman who is 79 years old and having sexual fantasies. The problem is solved quickly, and should be a warning to everyone who has unprotected sex - even if it was 60 years ago.
