A father brings his daughter Callie into the clinic when she complains about difficulty breathing. House examines the teenager and soon realizes that "father" and daughter are unrelated, and that Callie paid off the man to bring her in. He figures that Callie is homeless and she starts to leave, but he points out that she's bleeding from the ear. House is intrigued when he's unable to find any obvious reason for the bleeding, tells her to pay off the fake dad, and says that he has no idea what's wrong with her...

Episode Quotes
Dr. House: How long has your daughter had trouble breathing?
Fake Dad: About a week now.
Dr. House: The best dads wait two or more.
Callie: Yeah, no, it's not like it's serious. I checked online and it's asthma or something.
Dr. House: "Or something" is the number one killer of teens without a medical degree.

Dr. House: How I miss the sweet smell of stickin' it to the man.
Dr. Wilson: Adams is right. You're protecting this girl.
Dr. House: No, I was wrong. It's the stench of moralizing.

Dr. Adams: Do you think people can change?
Dr. Chase: No. But I don't think that's gonna change your opinion, because... people don't change.

Ellen Rogers: You must be Dr. House.
Dr. House: I save my appearances for when parents are on the brink of doing something incredibly stupid.

Cultural References
Dr. House: That was to show Adams that Mommie Dearest hadn’t changed.

Mommie Dearest is a novel by Joan Crawford's adopted Christine, detailing her mother's abusive behavior. It was made into a movie in 1981.
