Storyline

An intersexual boy has collapsed on the basketball court. His parents have never told him he has both male and female cells and they (that is, the overprotective mother, who seems to be wearing the trousers) don't want the team to tell him either. For Thirteen, withholding the truth from the kid is easier said than done. To everybody's surprise, House acts kind and actually seems to be... happy, which makes everyone think something fishy is going on. Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>

Quotes

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: [to House when she discovers that he is using methadone] I can't sit by and watch you kill yourself. As long as you're in my hospital, you can't do methadone.
Dr. Gregory House: [gets up, opens the door and throws a journal in a trash can] I'll send someone for my stuff.
[starts to leave the bathroom]
Dr. Lisa Cuddy: That's it, you're quitting? You're choosing methadone over this job?
Dr. Gregory House: I'm choosing lack of pain over this job.
