Dr. Gregory House: Inject him with Cortisol. The guy'll have sex with his wife again! He'll hug his kid again! Hopefully that's the combination he was using... be a shame if I cured a pedophile.

Different sort of solution
9 October 2006 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

A despondent cripple takes a header into a pool. Once in the hospital, he is at the mercy of House, who suspects there's more going on than meets the paralyzed eye. His proposed solution is not taken seriously, and the man is being wheeled out at the end, where he will die at home. Or will he? It's up to Cuddy to save the day for a change. But will she? See it for yourself. The ever-radiant Kathleen (EVENT HORIZON) Quinlan guest-stars as the beleaguered man's dutiful wife. I would prefer to say nothing more about this episode, but IMDb is pestering me for more lines. I will say Quinlan, who is the real focus of this episode, is still a stunner after over 25 years of movie-making. Film buffs will remember her for her star turn in an episode of the otherwise mediocre TWILIGHT ZONE -- The MOVIE.
