Storyline

Natalie Soellner, the school's laughing stock, is brought in after vomiting during a Christmas show while drugged with mushrooms by her classmates. She also has tranquilizers in her locker; even her mother doesn't exclude the possibility of a suicide attempt. However, her heart and liver results fit neither hypothesis and more secrets are unearthed. House sent himself a fake Christmas gift to test his new team, but Wilson thinks he needs to experience both sides of kindness himself but is incapable of being kind to anyone.

Quotes

Dr. James Wilson: Yeah. That actually is what I'm trying to do. And the pathetic part is, it's not gonna work.
Dr. Gregory House: You're right. I gotta stop being such a jerk.

Great Episode
17 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode was pretty good. I thought that it was a great "before Chrstmas" episode.

The thing with the "virgin birth" was great. Another funny on House's part. And House trying to be "nice" was great as well. I also liked how Cuddy finally got her baby! And wow, where did the thing with Foreman and Thirteen come from!?

I was also wondering what the song was that was playing when the girl got to see her baby. It just made the moment, but I can't figure out what the title is. If anyone knows, please comment! :)

And watch this episode. It's worth it!
