'House' Recap: The Hermaphrodite

The episode starts with a family deciding whether their newborn will be a male or female, since (s)he was born with both genitalia. It then flashes to a young big eyed boy who wins the basketball game for his team, and then falls over in pain. House takes on the case without argument and cheerfully asks Wilson for his food instead of stealing it, and then when the parents ask for a completely unnecessary MRI, he agrees to it. This freaks Wilson out to the point of distraction, because this is not the evil, malicious, wonderful House he knows and has a bromance with. When he asks Cuddy if she slept with House, she denies it but becomes suspicious herself of the normally acerbic doctor.

Foreteen are excited that House is ignoring them now that they 'broke up' and seem like children themselves. This is ruined by the fact that both Kutner and Taub reassure them that breaking up was the best thing to do, and point out things that suck about the other partner. Taub shows that Foreman has no personality (HA), and Kutner that 13 would probably just leave Foreman for a woman. They start to bicker, and then realize the two already know they are still together. But House hasn't ... what?! Foreman decides at that time that House must be on heroin, which Wilson has come to suspect as well. Wilson confronts House at dinner, and House admits to being on methadone; a totally legal drug that nevertheless might kill him. It stopped his breathing earlier in the episode, and Foreman had to twist his nipples to wake him up. Not kidding.
