A woman and her husband are rescued from the middle of the ocean when their trip from Cuba to the US goes awry. While in air the man conveys that his wife is sick and that they need to see Dr. House. Unfortunately the medical records of the man's wife were lost at sea when the Guard made him leave the suitcase that contained them in the ocean. Tensions rise high in the Diagnostics department on the eve of Foreman's departure and the almost Sci-fi case that they are working. At the very end House is left with an immense conflict to be resolved in the next season. Written by Anonymous

(You can see it in House M.D.: The Socratic Method right before House starts making calls to the patient's previous doctors late at night.) See more »
