Storyline

When an old friend and former patient of Wilson's exhibits paralysis in his right arm, Wilson puts himself on the case. House wagers Wilson that the patient's symptoms are attributed to new cancer cells. Wilson accepts even though he is reluctant to believe the cancer has returned. With the help of the team, Wilson works to diagnose the patient more optimistic results, but when things take a turn for the worse, Wilson must address his inability to separate patient from friend. Meanwhile, Cuddy seeks advice in her search for real estate. Written by FOX Publicity

Trivia

Wilson correctly diagnosing depression as a symptom in his elderly African-American patient from him not talking about his grandchildren as usual is a catch House would probably never have made because he tries to avoid talking to his patients. See more »

Goofs

Quotes

Dr. Gregory House: The self-important jerk does not have transverse myelitis. He's got cancer.
Dr. James Wilson: How do you even -?
Dr. Gregory House: Ok! Maybe I paid the redhead down in records a few bucks to cc me on all your cases. A few patients die, you might get sad again. Make a speech that would end your career. Frankly, I'm stalking you for you.

best one all season
1 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

you know it's hard to see house going anywhere with a story especially after having watched the previous episode which focused more on houses necessity to be vindictive rather than the patient itself. which brings me to the point that the writers have got the show back on track with this truly engaging episode that i thought was the best i've seen all season for its unique approach for the first time(watch it to see what i mean) and its focus more on the case than on the personal issues of the characters of the show. i know now that my worries about house md becoming a soap opera are unfounded and that the MD in house MD is indeed necessary to be there instead of the show becomes "the life and lies of gregory house". big thumbs up, i hope it goes like this for the rest of the season, and once again robert sean leonard proved that even if hes a supporting actor he can truly act and act he does, making us love Wilson the character even more and lending it more focus and elaboration than previously imagined.
