Trivia

Contrary to some speculation, Hugh Laurie was not sick during filming. The script always called for the House character to have a cold in the first two-thirds of the episode, and Laurie incorporated the vocal symptoms of a cold into his American accent for the character. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Gregory House: We've got a patient who for no obvious reason is hallucinating. Since it's not obvious, I thought we'd go with subtle.
Dr. Allison Cameron: It doesn't matter. If her sat percentage is off, that means her blood isn't getting enough oxygen; that's a problem with her lungs, not her heart.
Dr. Eric Foreman: And a lung problem isn't causing hallucinations.
Dr. Robert Chase: But the lungs could lead us somewhere that is.
Dr. Gregory House: Welcome to the end of the thought process.

A tough episode to watch
26 August 2006 | by xredgarnetxSee all my reviews

House encounters a 9-year-old cancer victim who has other things going wrong. Even if he finds out what else is wrong with her, and fixes it, she still only has a short time to live. A gripping episode, and tough to watch. A procedure performed near the end, entailing the momentary exsanguination of the girl in order to track down a mysterious object, may very well be a real procedure but it is hair-raising to sit through. I would not recommend this episode for nonadults. In an amusing bit, Dr. Chase becomes the girl's object of adoration. The ending is quite touching. And House is more irritable and argumentative than ever.
