Dr. Wilson has made a deal with detective Tritter and now House has a choice: Jail or Rehab. While actively ignoring these options House takes a clinic case from Dr. Cuddy about a dwarf with ear infections. Dr. Cuddy and Dr. Wilson take away House's pain medication hoping to force him to take the deal taking him off of the case while he detoxes. Stuck in his apartment and trying to deal with the pain, the rest of the team with the addition of Cuddy and Wilson stumble while trying to solve the case without House. Foreman and Cameron both visit House on separate occasions to ask for help. The pain becomes to much and House eventually takes painkillers from one of Wilson's patients that has passed away. House solves the case while high on the painkillers proving that the dwarf had growth hormone deficiency. When the bottle of pain medication is empty House goes to Tritter to take the deal, but in Tritter's glee he finds House's mistake and is preparing to take him down. Written by
Did You Know?
When House goes into Abigail's room to reveal the final correct diagnosis, places his Vicodin bottle on top of the monitor that he uses to point out the gland, the camera pans downward and if you pause on the top of the MRI screen, you see the patient's name on the right and the hospital's name on the left. The hospital's name is misspelled as Princeton "Plansboro" instead of "Plainsboro". See more
