Storyline

A teenage boy attempting to follow in his late father's footsteps as an entertainer is admitted to Princeton Plainsboro with partial paralysis. As the team searches for a bone marrow match, they uncover a disturbing family secret. Meanwhile, House looks for creative ways to remove his ankle monitor so that he can attend a boxing match in Atlantic City, and he treats a patient who is convinced he is suffering from diabetes. Also, Taub faces a tough decision when his ex-wife Rachel tells him that she wants to move across the country with their infant daughter. Written by Fox Publicity

Quotes

Dr. Chris Taub: I didn't tell him.
Dr. Gregory House: Your heart said he needed to know. Your brain knew he's better off without it. Following your heart is easy. Following your brain is tough. Especially after years of following that much smaller organ. That's why all parents screw up all children.

Probably the best episode in this recent season
19 November 2011 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

It was a good episode of 'House', most amusing. What was oddest about it was that three, apparently responsible, doctors enjoyed watching boxing. I wonder if they also enjoy watching dog fights and car accidents for fun.

I was a little disappointed that the reputation of syphilis as the 'great pretender' wasn't explored further.

It was right that Wilson got his come-uppance after being unkind enough, as a friend, to let poor house be left at home watching plebvision instead of at the boxing match.

I think that House' thesis about parents ( pretty much the same as Philip Larkins ) was shown to be flawed in the last case.
