Storyline

Wilson is preparing his 14-year-old patient, Nick, for a bone marrow transplant when the donor, Nick's younger brother Matty, suddenly starts sneezing. Since Nick's immune system has been destroyed by the chemotherapy for his cancer, he cannot risk a marrow donation from Matty while Matty is ill. House decides that the fastest way to find out what's wrong with Matty is to make him worse. As the boys get sicker and sicker, House and his team race to cure Matty before both brothers die. Meanwhile, House battles Hector (his newly adopted dog) for supremacy and Foreman can't stop thinking about last week's mistake. Written by elizabethbennet135

Trivia

Another Sherlock Holmes reference occurs at the start of the scene in the tobacco shoppe where he will purchase his new cane: House tries out a curved styled pipe which resembles a calabash pipe. The calabash pipe, magnifying glass, and deerstalker hat are accouterments that the famed detective uses in the cinema and theatrical versions of his adventures and which are used on occasion as stunt props in House M.D. See more »

Goofs

Everything the team says about GVHD (graft-versus-host disease) has nothing to do with reality. GVHD is the most common complication after transplantation and with 4 out of 6 match can't be as dangerous as the characters say. See more »

Dog was awesome!
11 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This episode was awesome. All the medical terminology was confusing for me. But what I did understand was Dr.House is awesome. His comic timing, his anger and his way of connecting with people even if it is worse or better. He connects with them some way. And Wow they can make dog act too. All the scenes between dog and Dr.House were hilarious. Watch out how the dog leaves Dr.House. It was so emotional, comical and very funny. Director is fantastic. The way he should connection between Dr.House and dog is awesome. I am amazed at how even without one dialogue Dog was able to speak to Dr.House in a language of its own. Really fantastic. With Dr.House either you can love him or hate him but you can't ignore him. Even if people hate him outside still they admire him silently and appreciate for what he is.
