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

Did You Know?


At the end of the episode, you see House's apartment number is 221. This is a reference to House being based on Sherlock Holmes, who lives on 221B Baker Street. See more »


Wilson tells House "You're living in the same apartment for 15 years. You drive a ten year old car. You are not good with change." However, in season 1, House lived in a different building, in an upstairs unit, which is definitely different than his current first floor unit. (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 »


Dr. Allison Cameron: My resignation letter. I've gotten all I can from this job.
Dr. Gregory House: What do you expect me to do? Break down and apologise? Beg Chase to come back?
Dr. Allison Cameron: No, I expect you to do what you always do - make a joke and go on. I expect you to be just fine. I'll miss you.
