  • House has trouble diagnosing 2 boys who have same symptoms but no good connection. The mother of one boy gives him a hard time with his decisions. They finally figure out that both boys bought stolen jeans from the back of a truck where they absorbed pest

    I thought this episode was great. The mystery of the 2 boys was very intriguing- What made them both sick but with no real connection. The Mother's attitude towards the pompousness of House was understandable. The release form he wrote was outrageous. The plot thickened as the team realized that the first diagnoses were wrong and had they given the antodote, could have done more damage. The team did some good sleuthing at the boys' homes to find a connection. They finally narrowed it down to stolen jeans. The seller also put down pesticides and allowed the jeans to be spilled on. The boys wore them and absorbed the toxin. House had to humble himself a bit to get the mom to allow the treatment. A ruse to have her think the CDC called was very sneaky. I liked the show and plan to watch more of House!
