When it appears that Lucy Palmeiro, a schizophrenic mom with deep vein thrombosis, is lying about her alcohol intake, Dr. House is the lone voice of reason. Under the scrutiny of her hyper-vigilant teenage son, House takes Lucy off all her medications and secretly sends Foreman and Chase to search her apartment for clues.

Dr. House's birth date in the season two finale is 11 June 1959, the same as that of Hugh Laurie
; however, this birth date should be disregarded as it was revealed during House's hallucination. The season one episode, 'The Socratic Method', made several references to House's birth date as being in the winter. See more
After Luke confronts House about Foreman giving his mother, Lucy, Haldol to sedate her, House begins to walk away and the edge of his shoulder visibly bumps the tip of Luke's nose. See more
[Lucy is reading aloud "Her Praise" by W.B. Yeats
I will talk no more of books or the long war / But walk by the dry thorn until I have found/ Some beggar sheltering from the wind, and there/ Manage the talk until her name come round./ If there be rags enough he will know her name/ And be well pleased remembering it, for in the old days/ Though she had young men's praise and old men's blame/ Among the poor both the old and young gave her praise.
