Storyline

Science and faith are called into question when a patient is admitted to the hospital following his reenactment of the Crucifixion. The patient, Ramon Silva, refuses to undergo the prescribed treatment, and the team learns that after his daughter's cancer was cured, he pledged an oath of self-sacrifice to God. With little time to save Ramon's life, the team struggles to understand his reasoning and seemingly extreme religious convictions, but eventually learn that faith is not an argument. Meanwhile, Taub questions his wife Rachel about her relationship with an infidelity support group member and the team attends a co-worker's wedding where Wilson's relationship with Sam takes an unexpected turn.

Trivia

House: If you prick us do we not bleed. Possibly a reference to Shylock's monologue from Shakespear's The Merchant of Venice. See more »

Goofs

Ramon's daughter's cancer was referred to as "stage 4 glioblastoma," a brain cancer. Primary brain cancer is not staged, it is graded, as brain cancer does not metastasize to the rest of the body. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Eric Foreman: See? Life of the bachelor. All of the sex, none of the guilt.
Dr. Chris Taub: It's not over, okay? I just really miscalculated. I thought she'd forgiven me for everything but all those hurt feelings, they never really went away.
Dr. Gregory House: That makes a lot more sense.
Dr. James Wilson: Ignore him, he just got an idea.
Dr. Gregory House: I have one more test to run.
