Cameron's extremely agoraphobic former patient Stewart Nozick needs to be treated for an apparent seizure but refuses hospitalization, being too scared. House finds clever ways to trick him, but Cameron stupidly messes that up, which contributes to his worsening condition, while the diagnose also gets worse. Chase refuses to be used. Meanwhile Wilson tries to help House and Cuddy figure out how to proceed after their romantic evening. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


When House makes the final diagnosis for Todd, he jokingly calls Todd "Biggie" while explaining that fragments from one of the hollow point bullets he was shot with remained undetected in his hip. The joke is a reference to famed rapper, The Notorious B.I.G. (a.k.a., "Biggie Smalls") who was gunned down in a vehicle; the shooter used hollow point bullets. See more »


Dr. Gregory House: [to the lawyer after some flames come out of the patient's stomach during surgery] That always happens during surgery. It's just the gas build up. Nothing to sue about. Treat him for the burns. Anti-Biotics for the wipples. He'll be fine.
