Storyline

When Della, a seemingly healthy and active 14-year-old, suddenly collapses during a skateboarding exhibition, House and his team struggle to diagnose her condition and reassure her parents who already have to cope with their son's terminal illness. After her body rejects a donor lung, and with time running out to save her life, Della's family is left with little hope of securing a new donor and faced with a seemingly impossible decision regarding the fate of both children. Meanwhile, House tries to appease an elderly father and his son at the clinic, and House and Cuddy begin to face the challenges of taking their romantic relationship into the workplace.

Trivia

This is the second time House refers to the fictitious 'Tiburon Swab Technology', previously mentioned in Season 6 Episode 5 House M.D.: Brave Heart (2009) in a similar manner - to give a pretend medical justification for a lie. See more »

Goofs

Quotes

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: That fight... it was the first honest interaction you and I have had since we came back to work. If we are painfully, brutally honest with each other, maybe we'll get lucky again.
Dr. Gregory House: You've got a big ass.

One of the best episodes to date
18 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

The title of this review says it all really. This episode was really one of the best and greatly done.

The acting was great, especially by the brother and sister who made me cry at the end. Also the antics between Cuddy and House really are hilarious, with Wilson stuck in the middle of it all. The clinic duty patients in this episode were also great which to be honest, I don't often find in other episodes of House.

Watch this! It's not an episode worth missing and guaranteed to make you a House fan if you're not already.

And finally House/Cuddy!

it's so cute in a strange way...
