House is without a team, but is unfazed by it. Cuddy and Wilson both try to get him to hire a new team, but Huse argues he doesn't need a team.

House accepts, hijacks a janitor to serve as soundboard, and diagnoses the woman. Once treatment is started, new symptoms arise. Everytime House diagnoses a new problem, another crops up.

Did You Know?


House asks, "Am I in a M. Night Shyamalan movie?", referencing the director responsible primarily for supernatural movies such as The Sixth Sense (1999), Unbreakable (2000), Signs (2002), The Village (2004), and Lady in the Water (2006). See more »


Wilson says that House hired a team 3 years ago. However, only Foreman was hired at that time (3 days before the series started) while Cameron was already working for House for 6 months and Chase for even longer than that. Moreover, it was mentioned at some point in the early seasons that there were other members to House's team before the original three. See more »

User Reviews

One of the best
31 May 2020 | by KhaelaSee all my reviews

For me, the beginning of the season 4 is probably one of the best sets of episodes for M.D. House (a good sets is the ones with the detective in a previous season). Here, House is really in free wheel, nothing to stop him, he is an absolute jerk without constraints or limits and it is funny, witty and ... well I must admit, absolutly without moral. About the medical case, it is so human... it does give a good balance to our favorite sociopath.
