Storyline

When an old friend and former patient of Wilson's exhibits paralysis in his right arm, Wilson puts himself on the case. House wagers Wilson that the patient's symptoms are attributed to new cancer cells. Wilson accepts even though he is reluctant to believe the cancer has returned. With the help of the team, Wilson works to diagnose the patient more optimistic results, but when things take a turn for the worse, Wilson must address his inability to separate patient from friend. Meanwhile, Cuddy seeks advice in her search for real estate. Written by FOX Publicity

Trivia

Towards the end of the episode, Wilson says "I'm not here for an argument, House", to which House replies "no, right, that's 12A".

This is a nod to Monty Python's 'Argument Clinic' sketch where Michael Palin's character says he is looking for an argument but is in the wrong room and it told "you want room 12A, next door." See more »

Goofs

Dr. Lisa Cuddy: You have hundreds of patients.
Dr. James Wilson: And until I run out of excess organs, why shouldn't I do everything I can to help them?
Dr. Lisa Cuddy: Because you're a doctor, not a donor.

best one all season
1 December 2009 | by twistedmetal1412See all my reviews

you know it's hard to see house going anywhere with a story especially after having watched the previous episode which focused more on houses necessity to be vindictive rather than the patient itself. which brings me to the point that the writers have got the show back on track with this truly engaging episode that i thought was the best i've seen all season for its unique approach for the first time(watch it to see what i mean) and its focus more on the case than on the personal issues of the characters of the show. i know now that my worries about house md becoming a soap opera are unfounded and that the MD in house MD is indeed necessary to be there instead of the show becomes "the life and lies of gregory house". big thumbs up, i hope it goes like this for the rest of the season, and once again robert sean leonard proved that even if hes a supporting actor he can truly act and act he does, making us love Wilson the character even more and lending it more focus and elaboration than previously imagined.
