Vogler has given House a way out. He can give a speech praising his new drug and he will not have to fire anyone.

The main patient is a Senator who is running for President - a Black Senator. After a misdiagnosis of AIDS, they work to save him, and House shows some of his softer side.

He is also working on a woman who was pregnant even though she denies having sex in over a year. His solution to her problem reveals a disease I would not like to have.

He makes the speech, but not the way Vogler wants, and Cameron decides to quit before he has to fire her.

Is there another solution coming?
