Storyline

Natalie Soellner, the school's laughing stock, is brought in after vomiting during a Christmas show while drugged with mushrooms by her classmates. She also has tranquilizers in her locker; even her mother doesn't exclude the possibility of a suicide attempt. However, her heart and liver results fit neither hypothesis and more secrets are unearthed. House sent himself a fake Christmas gift to test his new team, but Wilson thinks he needs to experience both sides of kindness himself but is incapable of being kind to anyone.

Trivia

When talking to Kutner and Taub in regards to the mysterious present that House has received, Wilson mentions a fake love interest of House's by the name of "Irene Adler". This is the name of the only woman to outwit Sherlock Holmes, and the only female to pique his interest. This is one of the many House-Holmes references. See more »

Quotes

Dr. James Wilson: [after hearing that House got a present wrapped in green paper] Irene Adler. Christmas 2001. Sarcoid symptoms, but she didn't respond to methotrexate. I've never seen him so obsessed. He saved her with a last-minute Wegener's diagnosis, but the hours he put in... I thought it would kill him. And then... well, he fell for her, but it was too soon after Stacy and... It sounds silly, but Irene was the one who got away.
Dr. Lawrence Kutner: Really?
Dr. Lawrence Kutner: No, you idiots. House is just screwing with you.
