Storyline

Adam is brought in by his dad Doug after a freaky explosion accident while they were motorcycling which left the adolescent with massive burns. Adam gets surprising cardiac neurological complications and even an orgasm. House however leaves Adam largely to his students as he insists on attending a lecture, disguised. He is determined to expose Dr. Phillip Weber, a lecturer on his migraine drug research, as a bad scientist. House harbors twenty years of belated revenge for a cheating incident at Johns Hopkins, by Dr. Weber, which cost House an internship while they were students there. Adam gets brain problems, but after an unethical test on a comatose patient House, who has swallowed his medicine, takes charge himself. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Dr Wilson greets House with the comment "Dr. Jekyll I presume." That's two obscure references in one. "Dr. Livingston I presume" is the apocryphal greeting that Stanley used when he finally located Dr. Livingston in Africa. And Dr. Jekyll ill-advisedly tested an experimental drug on himself, just as House did in this episode. See more »
