Storyline

Cuddy's mother, Arlene, is admitted to Princeton Plansboro after complaining about unusual symptoms, but stubborn Arlene insists that House be removed from the case, forcing House to come up with non-conventional - and illegal - means to treat his patient. House instructs his team to follow his lead, and they discover details in Arlene's personal life that she kept secret from Cuddy and her sister Lucinda. Later, Cuddy places her trust in House to ensure that her mother receives the proper medical treatment, leading "by the book" medical student Masters to reevaluate her responsibility to practice within a code of ethics and to follow her boss' orders.

Quotes

Dr. Gregory House: We switch her meds. We get a solution of broad-spectrum antibiotics, stick it in an I.V. bag marked for prednisone. Kaufman can only be there a few times a day. Tell Arlene you're from the pharmacy, switch 'em out.
Dr. Eric Foreman: This is nuts. This is way too complicated.
Dr. Gregory House: It's hanging an I.V. bag!
Dr. Eric Foreman: If the attending doesn't know what she's on, the risk of drug reaction...
Dr. Gregory House: What risk? We know how he's treating her. We bugged the room.
Dr. Eric Foreman: This is not about information...
