Writer / Director
Matt Witten / Guy Ferland
The patient
A teenage boy, Matt, who has been poisoned. But by what?
How House gets involved
Foreman brings him the case and House accepts it only when Foreman agrees with House's claim that he doesn't care about the kid but finds the case intriguing
The mis-diagnoses
House thinks at first that it is drugs. Foreman and Cameron think it is a food toxin. Then Chase suggest pesticide poisoning (they find several possibilities but the medication for each of them just makes Matt worse).
The privacy invasion / major ethical breach
House sends Foreman and Cameron to the patient's house to find the stash of drugs he assumes are there.
The final diagnosis
Phosmet (a pesticide) picked up through the skin from some jeans he had bought off the back of a truck.
The clinic patient(s)
Georgia, an 82 year old woman, who is feeling sexy and who starts flirting with House and later sends him a poem, which Wilson intercepts and reads in public.
"Taiga" posted at the Television Without Pity's House Forum Georgia's poem which was read aloud by Wilson:

   "The healer with his magic powers
   I could rub his gentle brow for hours
   His manly chest, his stubble jaw,
   Everything about him leaves me raw-
   -with joy. Oh, House, your very name
   Will never leave this girl the same."
