House: Sleeping Dogs Lie

After a patient, Hannah, is brought after taking an overdose of sleeping pills, it is revealed that she previously had not slept in 10 days. As her condition becomes worse, House discovers that she will need a liver transplant. It turns out that the woman's girlfriend, Max, is the perfect match. However, after the team discovers something else about the couple's relationship, it forces them in an ethical quandary. Meanwhile, Cameron accuses Foreman of stealing a medical article she wrote, but he says he wrote one almost exactly like it before hers was even submitted.

Episode Quotes
Dr. Cameron: You’re on his side?
Dr. Cuddy: Sides? This isn’t dodgeball.

Hannah: I've got the plague?
House: Don't worry, it's treatable. Being a bitch, though...nothing we can do about that

Dr. Cameron: Depriving her of what little sleep she has, that’s torture.
House: So is cutting people with knives. You can totally get away with that if you have a doctor’s coat on.

Dr. Cameron: Do you have any idea what it feels like to have a 6’ hose shoved into your large intestine?
House: No. But I now have a much greater respect for whatever basketball player you dated in college.

(As Cameron, Foreman, and Chase walk into House's office)
Dr. Cameron:: We've got rectal bleeding.
House: What, all of you?
