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.

House and Wilson advise the patient she has small cell lung cancer. This "diagnosis" was made by a chest x-ray, with no mention of a biopsy. It would be criminally irresponsible to treat cancer without having pathologic or cytologic confirmation of the type. See more

If you think House deserves to go, if you think I deserve to go, Wilson deserved to go, then vote yes, but if you're doing this because you are afraid of losing his money, then he's right! He does own you. You have a choice. Maybe the last real one you'll have here.
