  • What House was playing at the end was "Cuddy's Serenade", written by Hugh Laurie. In the middle for a few bars was "You Can't Always Get What You Want" (which was in the first and last episodes of the first season.
It is cold. It is winter.
Patient of the Week:
A priest, named Daniel Bresson, who has lost his faith but keeps working for the homeless. He also drinks. After a couple of drinks, one cold night, he answers heavy knocking to see a crucified Jesus.
How House gets involved:
He is looking through the files of the patients in ER for a non-case to use to deal with what he calls "Foreteen".
The privacy invasion / ethical breach
Preliminary diagnoses:
When one of Daniel's toes falls off, they finally believe he has a real problem and leprosy is suggested or maybe carbon monoxide poisoning. Later a clotting problem is suggested. By now the patient's body is numb and then his right eye goes blind so House says it is a neurological problem. They also look at the spleen. They find bugs that only affect patients with AIDS. But the priest swears he has been celebrate his whole life.
The final diagnosis
House goes through each symptom taking them out and checking for a diagnosis that fits all but one symptom. Taking out the original hallucination, he decides the priest has Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome, which he was born with an which often looks like AIDS.

    Cuddy invited House to her Jewish baby naming ceremony hoping he would refuse to come. At first he does and then he realizes they are "playing him" and he tells her he will attend. She goes to Wilson to complain. "You idiot. I was free and clear. Now, he's coming and its your fault."
       "Since when have your failed attempts at communication through lies been by fault."
       "Since you forgot how to keep your mouth shut. You messed up and now you're going to fix it. And you're going to keep my name out of it."
  • Wilson goes to talk to House. "You always have a rason. It's usually a bad one but a reason."
       "She's being childish."
       "See. That's an example from the bad category... Is it just resentment....or you just can't stand to see others happy?"
       "She's trying to play me. If I let her the terrorists win."
  • House decides to talk to the priest --- that Daniel has lost his faith, interests him. "So, if I happen to cure you, what happens then? You start thinking that God was working through me some sort of miracle?"
       "Do you think I'm an idiot?"
       "That's what I'm testing."
       "Losing my faith wasn't a choice I made. It happened. It's gone."

       "But if it can magically disappear, it can magically reappear. And that's what your hoping. Your job—"
       "That's my point. You could make more money frapping decafs and yet you're still ministering to the meek. Why do the lord's work if the lord has left the building?"
       "I've been with the church my entire adult life. It's my only marketable skill."
       "I detect the stink of left over faith."
       "You want to talk hypocracy. What about you. You act like you don't care about anyone, but here you are saving lives."
       "Solving puzzles. Saving lives is just collateral damage."
       "Nice try but I don't think you're looking to someone to prove you're right, I think you're looking for someone to prove you're wrong; to give you hope. You want to believe, don't you?"
       "Yeah, I want to walk out and find myself in a forest of whore trees. But I don't think it's a good idea to tell people to go fornicate with fruit."
  • Wilson has occasion to tell House, "Even if an absolute truth exists, we can't know all of it...."
       "House solves the case based on that insight and tells Wilson, "We can know everything."
       "This is medicine, not metaphysics."
       "Truth is truth."
  • After solving the case, House goes to talk to the priest again and they discuss the hallucination that had Daniel in the ER. House tells him, "Coincidences do happen."
       "That coincidence is what brought me to you in the first place."
       "You promised you wouldn't go there."
       "Einstein said, 'Coincidence is God's way of remaining anonymous.... You didn't even want to take my case. You didn't even think I was sick."
       "The fact that I was wrong is not a proof of God."
       "I'm just trying to understand how my life could completely turn around in a single day."
       "Don't worry. Your life will go back to sucking soon enough. Everything that happened to you can be rationally explained."
       "I know. It's just— That's a lot of coincidences."
