  • House has to figure out why a boy is having night terrors.

    The story line in this episode was really good. The mystery was well-created and there were some interesting sub-plots. It was funny, though, how they did the dialogue, because they were obviously repeating things this episode that they said last episode just in case some people hadn't watched the pilot. I really like the way the story was told. The scenes where the boy was hallucinating (like where House was going to cut off his toe or where he was on the field) were really well done, because for a while it was very difficult to tell if they were real or not. The subplot with the paternity test was pretty funny. The only part I didn't like was that the resolution seemed really random. House just out of nowhere asked if the boy's mother had had vaccinations. Where the heck did he come up with that?
