Storyline

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 Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Dr. Gregory House: [as House and Wilson are having dinner] You don't believe that I O.D. on vicoden. You figured I'm on something stronger. And because you can never *ever* assume anything but the most screwed up scenario as far as I'm concerned.
Dr. James Wilson: Funny how I'm usually right.
Dr. Gregory House: You think I'm on heroin. This is your version of a tox screen. Because if I'm on heroin, I can't drink that without risking another bought of not breathing.
Dr. James Wilson: Well?
[House drinks the shot]

Hard to like

House treats a boy who may be a girl, and whose parents have kept this information from "him" for years. The kid has severe stomach pains, which turns out to be a lot of nothing. But things get complicated when an MRI of the boy throws everything for a loop. House meanwhile is acting way too mellow, to the point of passing out on the job, and everyone suspects him of using heroin. They're close. The episode is too much of a soap opera for me. Foreman and 13 are still hiding their affair from House, or so they think. Cuddy emotes way too much over House's odd condition. And so on and so forth. The case itself isn't all that interesting, either. It almost seems like a rehash of an episode from way back when, involving a girl who turns out to also be a boy. Only good thing about that episode was the girl was played by a very attractive young model who flashes her very lovely teats at House to make a point. Make that two points.
