Soon, House believes that Hank is using steroids, even though he swears he has not. Hank's kidneys begin to fail and his wife says she will gladly donate one of hers, but if she does she will have to abort her still early pregnancy. Hank, after hearing this, tries to kill himself. It's up to House and his team find out what the true problem is and soon if this pitcher's life, as well his career, is going to be saved. Meanwhile, Foreman dates a pharameutical rep and House ends up getting stuck with two tickets to a monster truck rally and ends up going on a "date" with Cameron.
Dr. Cameron: You asking me to go with you?
House: Sure. Sounds good.
Dr. Cameron: Like a…date?
House: Exactly. Except for the “date” part.
House: 5 p.m., Dr. House checks out.
Dr. Cuddy: It’s 4:45.
House: I was rounding up.
House: Do you like monster trucks?
Dr. Cameron: I don't know what they are...
House: Fine. I'll ask one of my other friends.
Dr. Wilson: Huh.
House: What? Are you saying I've only got one friend.
Dr. Wilson: Who?
House: Kevin. In Bookkeeping.
Dr. Wilson: Okay, well first of all, his name is Carl.
House: I call him Kevin. It's his secret friendship club name.
Lola: You have a big "keep out' sign stapled on your forehead.
House: That explains it. I told them to put it on my door.
Patient #2: I can't get my contact lenses out.
House: Out of what - they're not in your eyes.
Patient #2: They're red.
House: That's because you're trying to remove your corneas.
House: But I had three reasons.
Dr. Cuddy: Good ones?
House: Well, lets see in a minute - I'm just making them up now.
House: Call me when he's stable—or dead.
House: I'm Dr. House, and today is the coolest day of my life!
House is clearly improvising the line used on the FOX show 24 where the lead character said, "I'm Federal Agent Jack Bauer, and today is the longest day of my life," to open up each episode of the first season.
