Storyline

Schoolboy Matt Davis collapses during an exam with serious poisoning symptoms. House immediately supposes drugs or a 'substitute', but proud mother Margo Davis won't consider either theory. It takes all House's cynicism to make Matt's very protective mother consent to therapy for an insecticide Matt presumably sprayed - but when Chi Ling arrives with the same symptoms, whose only connection with Matt was in riding the same school bus, the toxic insecticide trail runs dead, and the pressure's on to save these two dying, comatose boys. Meanwhile, octogenarian Georgia Adams is brought in by her son for mental symptoms to which he can barely believe the 60-year-old cause. Written by KGF Vissers/revised by statmanjeff

Dr. Allison Cameron: Oh-ho. Deflecting a personal question with a joke. Gee, who do I know that does THAT?
Dr. Eric Foreman: Yeah, I'm just like him - except for the angry, bitter, pompous cripple part.
Dr. Allison Cameron: Maybe we should all pitch in and get you a nice cane. You already have the matching gym shoes.

Oh, they're just the arrogant jerks that saved your life.
6 September 2008 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

Roxanne Hart (License to Wed, Art School Confidential) is an overbearing mother that complicates the treatment of her son who passed out while taking a test.

The diagnoses are difficult until they find the clue to what was wrong, and she is questioning everything and refusing to allow treatment until she checks with the CDC. Chicanery and bluntness are the norm in this interesting case.

Foreman (Omar Epps) seems to be becoming more like House every day.

Along with the main case, House is treating a woman who is 79 years old and having sexual fantasies. The problem is solved quickly, and should be a warning to everyone who has unprotected sex - even if it was 60 years ago.
