Schoolboy Matt Davis collapses during an exam with serious poisoning symptoms. House immediately supposes drugs or a 'substitute', but proud mother Margo Davis won't consider either theory. It takes all House's cynicism to make Matt's very protective mother consent to therapy for an insecticide Matt presumably sprayed - but when Chi Ling arrives with the same symptoms, whose only connection with Matt was in riding the same school bus, the toxic insecticide trail runs dead, and the pressure's on to save these two dying, comatose boys. Meanwhile, octogenarian Georgia Adams is brought in by her son for mental symptoms to which he can barely believe the 60-year-old cause. Written by

Did You Know?
When Chase and Cameron check 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

I'm the doctor who's trying to save your son, you're the mom who's letting him die. Clarification - it's a beautiful thing.
