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

[Around 0:41:00] When Stacy asks Cuddy whether she can take a medical decision for the patient, House, that of opting for a surgical intervention to treat his leg, which is completely different from what House had implicitly wanted even in Dr Cuddy's presence, Cuddy replies in the affirmative that it is possible for Stacy to do so as his health-care proxy. However, the American medical laws clearly state that a doctor can not accept a health-care proxy's decision that, in his views, is different from the patient's previously stated advance directive for the event that he becomes incompetent to take his own decisions. In such a scenario, the doctor can either go ahead and honour the patient's original advance directive, thus overruling the health-care proxy's wishes, or consult the hospital's ethics committee, or ask for a court order in case it is not an emergency.

Whoa!!
10 March 2007 | by (Lisbon, Portugal) – See all my reviews

This episode only has one word to describe it: amazing! I could use some more adjectives but, I mean, you got my point... It gives us a vision of House and his past that we never had before and it makes us understand better why he is like he is and be more sympathetic towards him. It also shows that his staff and his friends don't know him nor understand him that well and that House really can be a good teacher and a good person. In my opinion, Cameron gets a new view of House and understands what he meant with him being her next "charity case". I wish every episode was like this one, it would be the best television show EVER (even now it's close). It definitely deserves the Emmy, it's excellent!
