Storyline

While driving a car with her husband Sean, the pregnant Naomi Randolph collapses and is moved to House's hospital. Edward Vogler is forcing the dismissal of House, pressing the board with his investment of one hundred million dollars in the hospital. The team finds that Naomi has small-cell lung cancer, needing to be submitted to radiation, but she refuses the caesarean section and the treatment to give a better chance of survival to the baby. Meanwhile, the baby of a young couple is losing weight, and House finds that the baby is being fed by the vegetarian parents only with a vegan diet. The direction of the hospital calls the social service and the police and the parents are arrested. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

House, Wilson, Foreman, and Chase are celebrating Vogler's leaving with champagne in House's office. House is sitting on the bookcase by his window, holding a mostly empty glass. Cuddy walks in, and House begins to fill a black coffee cup on his desk. While he is still pouring champagne into the cup, Cuddy suddenly has the glass in her hand, and it's considerably more full than when House had it. See more »

Edward Vogler: Really? See, I thought you were the one trying to ram her into a drug trial 5 minutes after surgery...
Dr. Gregory House: She knows the risks, she was fully informed...
Edward Vogler: Well, the guy running the study sure wasn't.
Dr. Gregory House: Not his life, not his call!
Edward Vogler: His study, his call!
[At this point, Cuddy comes out of the clinic]

Edward Vogler: The numbers look bad, the study looks bad!
Dr. Gregory House: Which would cost you money!

"Babies & Bathwater" was released in Brazil as a "special gift" for buyers of DVDs like me with the title "Pilot Episode", as a means of promoting this show. This episode is very realistic and too technical, but even non-expert in medicine are able to understand the illness and the recommended treatment. In spite of being not familiarized with the series, the situations and the characters are interesting for those that may like dramas in hospital. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil) "Episódio Piloto" ("Pilot Episode")
