O fato é que House descobre que está curado da perna. E que está tendo alucinações. O que é real e o que é alucinação? Para responder esta pergunta ele terá que ir até as últimas consequencias, mesmo que coloque a vida de seu parciente em risco.
Moriarty: You pretend to be a rebel; claim to hate rules, but all you do is subsitute your own rules for society's. That's a nice simple rule: tell the blunt, honest truth in the starkest, starkest way; and what will be, will be; what will be, should be; and everyone else is a coward. But your wrong. It's not cowardly to not call someone an idiot. People are tactful and polite just because it's nice. They do it because they got an ounce of humility; because they know that they will make mistakes, and they know that their actions have consequences, and they know that those consequences are their fault. Why do you want so bad not to be human, House?
