Storyline

House's ex-girlfriend Stacy Warner returns-not for House but to get help for her ailing husband, Mark. While House decides whether or not to take her case, Cuddy forces him to present a lecture to a class of medical students. As he weaves the stories of three patients who all present with a similar symptom, House gives a lecture the students will never forget - he discusses three past cases, one of which is more than meets the eye.

Goofs

When the three patients undergo surgery, none of them have their eyes taped shut. During surgery, the patient's eyes are taped shut to keep moisture in because while a patient is under anesthesia, the body can not produce lubrication for the eyes because the patient doesn't blink. See more »

Quotes

[House diagnoses the chronically sick absent professor]
Dr. Gregory House: [indicates mug] And this guy is *not* the "World's Greatest Dad". Not even ranked. Who the hell lets their kids play with lead-based paint? That's why he's always sick. Find him some plastic cups and the class is all his again.

One of the best
22 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is arguably the best episode of any show I've ever seen. Strong words but the episode backs it up. It builds slowly as the kind of lecture you'd expect from House, with an off-the-wall topic and several strange turns. But subtly, without your even sensing it, it hits you with the real meaning of the topic House is expounding on. Like the best episodes it packs an incredible amount of plot and emotion and drama into 60 minutes, and before its over you're left breathless and on the edge of your seat.

I generally like House but this episode stunned me. It made watching a television show into an experience in a way few episodes of few series ever have, at least for me.
