Teenage competition diver Mary Carroll overcomes her fear and plunges to see all eyes are averted- to her fatherly coach Stahl, who collapsed bleeding. He's brought in and the pool and hospital quarantined, as his symptoms and soon those of a flood of others indicate a meningitis epidemic. Dr. Robert Chase may have the best ideas by far and the steadiest hand, he still is in the dog-house and gets landed with endless chores, including an epic Internet search after House found Mary's case is probably not just meningitis, while Foreman gets the interesting practice and even his breaks. Meanwhile Cuddy not only makes House stay and help screening the flood of possibly infected people like everyone else in such an emergency, but orders him and his only friend Wilson to interview candidates to replace Dr. Allison Cameron, but Gregory's creativity to reject even the most suitable on dubious 'indications' such as footwear makes James conclude it's all Freudian.

User Reviews

A welcome change
28 March 2006 | by xredgarnetxSee all my reviews

An outbreak of bacterial meningitis at a heavily attended school swim meet means House and his colleagues must cope with dozens of people being bused to the clinic to ascertain if they are infected. One 12-year-old girl, played winningly by Skye Bartusiak, seems to have something altogether different going on. You can guess, but you will be wrong. House splits his time between treating her and checking on the seemingly endless stream of clinic arrivals. Cameron returns, but on one condition: She demands a date with House. This series clearly costs some bucks to put together, and this is no more evident than in this very busy episode. Some real ERs and clinics would probably love to have access to all the paraphernalia and equipment seen on this fictional N.J. setup.
