A young man collapses at his job, and House makes a game of establishing the diagnosis until things turn critical, and Tritter increases the pressure on Wilson.
Did You Know?
Consistent with House's parallels with Sherlock Holmes, when he challenges his team to solve the puzzle of the diagnosis, he writes it on a piece of paper, puts it in an envelope and on the envelope writes "The game is a itchy foot." This is a play on words of Holmes' popular phrase, "The game is afoot." See more
[Around 00:24:40] Dr Cameron tosses House a bottle of pills that "takes the edge off" her PMS, as a substitute for his vicodin®. The only acceptable substitute for vicodin, a combination opiate analgesic of hydrocodone, is a non steroidal anti inflammatory drug (NSAID). NSAIDs are usually prescribed for dysmenorrhoea, which Dr Cameron wrongly referred to as her PMS. Dysmenorrhoea is a pain that occurs around the time of menstruation, while PMS is a psychosomatic disorder that begins around the time of ovulation and actually gets better around the time of menstruation. The treatment of PMS is largely dietary restrictions and antidepressant medications. Most people confuse the terminology of PMS with dysmenorrhoea, but Cameron, being a doctor herself, should not have used the incorrect term. See more

Hmmm, good idea. Ignore the symptoms. Makes your job easy.
