Oh, they're just the arrogant jerks that saved your life., 6 September 2008
Author: lastliberal from United States

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.
