It is snowing and Chase still has the new haircut.
Patient of the Week:
Valerie developes severe head pain.
How House gets involved:
Foreman tells him the patient is "hot" and her husband not so much.
The privacy invasion / ethical breach / Rule Breaking
Thirteen encourages the patient's husband to investigate a landscaping course he thinks his wife took when Thirteen knows she was having an affair to get ahead in business.
Preliminary diagnoses:
Valerie recently changed her diet so House thinks her already elevated cholesterol could have been raised further. The team discover she has arrhythmia. Thirteen does an unauthorized MRI that shows Valerie has no emotions: a psychopath. With that the team decide it is late stage syphilis. Then they discover kidney failure then more organs fail including the liver.
The final diagnosis
Thirteen discovers that Valerie wasn't always a psychopath, that started around puberty and so becomes a larger part of the diagnosis and House and Thirteen test for and finally realize it is Wilson's Disease which is an inability to deal with copper. The liver may still have to be replaced but Valerie may even rediscover a conscience.
Who Came up with final diagnosis
Thirteen and House
Clinic Patients
Wilson is treating a clinic patient who House diagnoses although he shares his finding with the patient and not with Wilson who is just sewing up the patient's hand.

Quotes, Quotations, Dialogue, Scenes:
  • Wilson finds House sleeping on the couch in his office. "You can't sleep in your own office? Or bedroom for that matter?"
       "Got to avoid my natural habitat. Some idiot I went to Med school with keeps leaving messages and wants to drop by for lunch."
       "So. Tell him no."
       "It's complicated."
       "It's too complicated for you to tell someone you don't like to screw off? That's practically your hobby."
       "A few months ago he was sort of part of my therapy. My shrink told me to write a letter of apology to someone I hurt."
       "And how did you hurt him?"
       "We were in a seminar on flatworm genetics. I switched my final paper with his."
       "You plagiarized? That doesn't sound like you."
       "I was testing a theory. Thought that our professor was biased against me. I assumed he'd get a high grade with my paper and I'd get a low grade with his. Interestingly, I was wrong. I got an A."
       "So you're in this mental hospital delving into your subcousious and this is who you choose to apologize to? ...Of all the people in the world you've hurt?"
       "Not everyone in the world has a name that's so easy to find in the white pages."
       "I'm in there and so is Cuddy."
       "Yeah and yet I picked him. It's funny isn't it."
       "Yes, its hilarious. Great to see what a sucess your therapy was." At which Wilson walks out

  • Instead of meeting with the team, House calls in. Chase asks, Where are you?"
       "Undisclosed location."
       "Who are you hiding from?"
       "Wilson and the lunch date that Wilson is no doubt right now trying to sic on me. In the great game of chess that is our relationship, Wilson seeis only one move ahead. I see dozens. That is hwy he will never mate me." Several members of the team show an expression and House obviously imagines it as he follows that with. "That's a chess term."
