Nurse Morgan West is convinced she's dying because 'prophetic' cat Debby from the senior home where she works came to her. House assumes she's a malingerer, but she soon gets symptoms one can't fake. Even a coma patient who attracted the cat later dies. House taunts Kutter's mild superstitious practices. Taub hopes for a better job with college mate Neil Zane in the medical supplies business.
Did You Know?
The idea of a cat predicting death is probably based on the real story of Oscar, a cat (born in 2005) living in Steere House Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Providence, Rhode Island. Oscar has predicted the death of at least 25 people, never making a mistake. He follows the procedure described in House, paying a visit to a patient who is within hours of death and sleeping on the patient's bed. See more
In the scene where House and the team are looking outside for the cat, House fakes getting sick and takes a drink from the cup he's holding. He them spits the contents of the drink - cranberry juice - all over Dr. Kutner's shirt and right side of his lab coat. Right after, Dr. Kutner is shown with the juice on his shirt and on the left collar of his lab coat, the right side is pristine. See more
Dr. Lawrence Kutner
Oh you were lying about the throat spray. That does make more sense. So why are you wasting Taub's time?
Dr. Gregory House
Because I don't want him to know that I'm wasting my time disproving his fake seizure theory.
