The patient
21-year-old male has been going to different practicianers (chiropractors, acupuncturists, etc.) trying to get relief from pain with his teeth.
How House gets involved
House "scares" the patient into having what appears to be a stroke.
The mis-diagnoses
Chase suggests the patient has an aneurysm due to trauma but at first House dismisses this until Chase reveals that he know the woman visiting the patient is a dominatrix. They arranged surgery but the surgery showed nothing.
The privacy invasion / major ethical breach
House sends Chase and Cameron to search his apartment to find information on his parents. Later to get the patient's parents to agree to a procedure, House threatens to tell everyone in their neighborhood that they would rather let their son die than sign a piece of paper.
The final diagnosis
Infection of the jaw (fulminating osteomylitis)
The clinic patient(s)
1) A patient with whom House and Wilson watch a game on TV. 2)70 year old woman with vaginal tearing who is afraid to tell her sexual partner "no" - partner is also doing more than he wants but neither is talking to the other about the situation.
Quotes / Scenes
  • House (telling his team): "21-year-old male, comes in with grinding of the teeth."
    Wilson: "And House gives him a stroke, totally blows out his pupil."
    Foreman: "You scared a guy into stroking out?"
    Wilson: "Does that surprise anyone here?"

    House: "You have some vaginal tearing. No sign of brusing, no indication of trauma or forced entry Ramona. You naughty girl. You've either got yourself an 18-year-old boyfriend or an 80-year-old with some little blue pills."
    Ramona: "Myron thought he'd just try them out!"
    House: "Lucky you."
    Ramona: "I guess."
    House: "Prefer it if Myron was a little droopier?"
    Ramona: Maybe a little. We used to hold hands, read together, or watch 'Jeopardy'. I haven't seen 'Jeopardy' in almost a month!"
    House: "Have you talked to him about this?"
    Ramona: "You try talking a 73-year-old out of sex. With all these male enhancements the pressure to put out's incredible. It's worse than high school. He doesn't get what he wants from me, he'll get it from Connie in the corner condo. She's dying her hair red! Major league slut."
    House: "Here's a prescription for vaginal estrogen suppositories. It'll help with the lubrication."
    Ramona: "Thank you. Maybe you could give Myron a prescription. Something weaker than he's got now? Tell him it's better for his heart he'd buy that."
    House: "You can't tell him the truth, so you want me to lie to him?"

  • House (in his apartment with Wilson getting ready for his date with Cameron): "This is a mistake. I don't know how to have casual conversation. You think you're talking about one thing, and either you are and it's incredibly boring, or you're not because it's subtext and you need a decoder ring."
    Wilson: "Open doors for her, help her with her chair."
    House: "I have been on a date."
    Wilson: "Uh, not since disco died. Comment on her shoes, her earrings, and then move on to D.H.A. Her dreams, hopes and aspirations. Trust me. Panty-peeler. Oh, and if you need condoms, I've got some."
    House: "Did your wife give them to you?"
    Wilson: "Drug rep. They've got antibiotics built in, somehow."
    House: "I should cancel. I've got a patient in surgery tomorrow."
    Wilson: "And if you were a surgeon, that would actually matter."

Some DevilSong at the end of the episode is from the Dave Matthews Band and is on the "Some Devil" album.
This album is also available from Amazon UK
One last kiss one only
Then I'll let you go Hard for you
I've fallen
But you can't break my fall
I'm broken don't break me
When I hit the ground

Some devil some angel
Has got me to the bones
You said always and forever
Now I believe you baby
You said always and forever
Is such a long and lonely time

Too drunk and still drinking
It's just the way I feel
It's alright
Is what you told me
Cause what we had was so beautiful
Feel heavy like floating
At the bottom of the sea

You said always and forever
Now I believe you baby
You said always and forever
Is such a long and lonely time

Some devil is stuck inside of me
I cannot set it free
I wish, I wish I was dead and you breathing
Just so that you could know
Some angel is stuck inside of me
But I cannot set you free

You said always and forever
Now I believe you baby
You said always and forever
Such a long and lonely time

Stuck inside of me"
