House apparently finds a way to scare one of the clinic patients into having a stroke. Soon the team is trying to find their way through the patient's odd lifestyle, an overbearing "friend" and reluctant parents in order to stop the strokes and try to save the guy's life. Meanwhile, the hospital is abuzz with House's upcoming date with Cameron, so Chase, Cuddy, Foreman and Wilson all try to give him and Cameron advice.
Dr. Cameron: He [House] agreed to go on a date with me.
Dr. Foreman: A date? Date, dinner & a movie, naked and sweaty date?
Dr. Cameron: He only committed to the first two.
Dr. Foreman: He [House] scared a guy into stroking out?
Dr. Wilson: Does that surprise anyone here?
Dr. Cuddy: Well, I think it's a good thing. What happened in your last relationship, it's no reason to wall yourself off from people forever. Five years of self-pity is probably enough.
House: Wow. Well, you've certainly given me a lot to think about. If only I was as open as you.
Dr. Cuddy: Well . . .
House: Actually, it was your blouse I was talking about.
Clinic Lawyer: So what's that - two strokes you've scared this guy into?
House: Yeah - it's making me question my view of myself as a people person.
House: (to an elderly woman) Ramona., you naughty girl. You've either got yourself an 18-year-old boyfriend or an 80-year-old with some little blue pills.
Dr. Cuddy: You lied to them!
Mrs. Park: He told us our son was dead.
House: It's only a white lie. Technically, all I did was call them a little early. Trust me, he'll be dead real soon. Actually, I saved you some rush-hour traffic.
Patient: Wait…she’s making you do her?
House: Date her.
Dr. Wilson: Young ingénue doctor falling in love with gruff, older mentor; her sweet gentle nature bringing him to a closer, fuller understanding of his wounded heart.
