Storyline

A $100 million dollar donation brings along a new Chairman of the Board to the hospital, with both Cuddy and Wilson seeing a clash coming against House. Meanwhile, as Cameron exercises newly acquired manipulation skills on her colleagues, House and team take a look at a high-ranking business woman experiencing a severe leg pain. In the clinic, House meets a man rendered mute from knee surgery, who sued the hospital successfully. Both may be cured, but somewhat surreptitiously. Written by statmanjeff

Easily the funniest episode with excitement!
28 July 2020 | by UniqueParticleSee all my reviews

A patient that is workaholic gets a bizarre leg clot among other things, along with a wonderful side patient whom doesn't talk which becomes hilarious and a new chairman of the board Chi McBride that is the ultimate power hungry jerk. I love the jokes in this episode, the stubbornness to not wear a coat and the music is glorious! There's some very heartwarming bits with the main patient that are golden.
