Will Westwood goes into a jewelry store to buy an engagement ring for his girlfriend Melissa. The owners, Sam and Stacy, are glad to help him. Will, who is blind, makes his way out onto the street and starts to cross the street. However, the noises suddenly echo in his head as he hallucinates the sounds, and he staggers out into the street.

Episode Notes
This episode was originally scheduled for February 27, 2012, but was pre-empted by the NASCAR Daytona 500, which ran a day late due to weather on 2/26.

Episode Quotes
Dr. Park: I'm Dr. Park, by the way. I'm 5'2", Asian, and I'm totally cool with it if you want to feel my face.
Melissa: Blind people only do that in movies.
Will Westwood: But you sound nice, so if you want me to...

Dr. Chase: Coincidence. Buying that, House?
Dr. House: Until I hear something that takes my mind off the Jurassic schlong that I was traumatized by this afternoon.

Dr. Park: Eighty-two pounds. How much weight I put on when my break ended the same way. People were calling me Park-ing Lot.

Thomas Bell: Practically walked in on us having sex. God, if I saw my mother doing that I'd claw my own eyes out. Of course, she was nowhere near as attractive as you. Horribly fat, as a matter of fact.

Dr. House: How long are you going to wait until you tell me?
Dr. Wilson: I thought we already had the Santa Claus talk.

Cultural References
Will Westwood: Like Rachel and Ross on Friends.

On the NBC TV sitcom Friends, the couple broke up briefly when Rachel insisted that they should take a break. Upset, Russ ended up sleeping with another woman.
