Storyline

When a man puts his life on the line to save a stranger who fell onto the subway tracks, he emerges from the dramatic scene miraculously unscathed but then suddenly collapses. Both the hospital and the town become captivated by the man's selfless deed, but as the team works to diagnose his symptoms, they discover that the hero's seemingly life-changing deed failed to break old habits. Meanwhile, House tries to avoid Cuddy's birthday dinner with her opinionated mother Arlene, and Taub draws unexpected attention when his face graces billboards advertising the hospital. As Taub and his wife reignite a physical relationship, Masters' outside perspective helps him realize that it's time to take action on his crumbling marriage. Written by Fox Publicity

Trivia

Although the background music while Cuddy and House wash the dishes may have been "Wacht Auf" from Bach's Cantata 140 (a choral piece) when the episode originally aired (2011), in the episode as presented on Netflix streaming video (as of June 2014), the music is the second movement from Bach's Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major, BWV 1068 (commonly called "Air on the G String").

Dr. Robert Chase: You saw the ads.

Dr. Robert Chase: Dr. Taub. The patient would like to see you.
Dr. Chris Taub: How can I help?
