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

When House and Cuddy are cleaning up after her birthday meal, the Bach piece playing in the background is "Wachet Auf," which is usually translated, "Sleepers, Wake!" It's appropriate since Wilson and Cuddy's mom are both asleep at the dining room table. See more »

Goofs

In S04E12 Dr. Taub says to the husband of the patient that he has been married for 12 years. However, in S07E09 he tells Masters that he has been married for 22 years. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Gregory House: [about Masters] God! She's still talking. Make it stop.
Dr. Robert Chase: House's world view doesn't include random acts of self-sacrifice. He's gonna count heroism as a symptom until proven otherwise.
