An intersexual boy has collapsed on the basketball court. His parents have never told him he has both male and female cells and they (that is, the overprotective mother, who seems to be wearing the trousers) don't want the team to tell him either. For Thirteen, withholding the truth from the kid is easier said than done. To everybody's surprise, House acts kind and actually seems to be... happy, which makes everyone think something fishy is going on. Written by

Taub: If by professional you mean he's a T-1000 built by Cyberdyne Systems. Referencing the liquid-metal cyborg played by Robert Patrick in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991). Despite Taub's description here, the AI programming of the T-1000 allows it to at least mimic human emotions even if it doesn't actually feel them. A T-1001 liquid-metal cyborg has been introduced on Fox's Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles the same season this episode premiered. See more
During "urethroscopy" Taub is using a tool which is apparently way too thick for a boy's urethra. It is in fact a gastroendoscope which is intended to go into a gullet (a much wider passage). See more
