A magician's heart stops during a performance. At first House dismisses the case, but later changes his mind when complications arise. House has a contest to determine the next one to leave the team.

The card trick that the magician does from his hospital bed with House is likely impossible to be performed in such circumstances in reality, being that it requires outside help. The trick is performed by forcing a particular card to be selected by the volunteer (there are numerous ways to do this), while the magician's assistant waits on the opposite side of the glass with a duplicate card. The magician turns the volunteer's attention away from the glass while the assistant affixes it to the other side, and then throws the deck at the spot where the card is affixed. In the flurry of cards hitting the glass (and resulting mess on the floor) it's very difficult to see that the card wasn't there before the throw. See more
