After one of their sexual experiments in a happy marriage, Bob Palko is brought into hospital by wife Maria with symptoms that indicate a serious allergy. Tests, however, for the source all fail. While Foreman keeps whining about his lupus theory, House insists on tests for heavy metal poisoning; his prime suspect being Maria. Bob develops a number of other frightening symptoms, including heart failure, which viral cures don't solve. House gives Dr. Wilson, who is getting divorced, marching orders after a day for no reason. House also diagnoses Vincent Lambert with herpes, but neither he nor his wife Charlotte accept that they are to blame; House outsmarts them. Written by

When House pulls up to his home on his motorcycle, the house address reads "221". In Season 2, Episode 3, the house number was shown as "221B", a reference to Sherlock Holmes, who lived at 221B Baker Street, and shared several character traits with Dr. Gregory House. See more
Marriages don't fail because couples get bored. They fail because, while they're dating, people pretend to be the person they think their partner wants and then - well, there's only so long you can keep that up.
Dr. Allison Cameron
Maybe they are that person when they're dating, but then they change.
People thinking their partner will change? That's another reason marriages fail. People don't change. At least not in any way that really matters.
