House questions the students about what kind of snake could have bitten the farmer and says three venomous snakes are native to New Jersey: the copperhead, rattlesnake, and coral snake. Only the copperhead and timber rattlesnake inhabit New Jersey. The only places to find coral snakes in the United States are in the south: South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California.

When the three patients undergo surgery, none of them have their eyes taped shut. During surgery, the patient's eyes are taped shut to keep moisture in because while a patient is under anesthesia, the body can not produce lubrication for the eyes because the patient doesn't blink.

[Around 0:41:00] When Stacy asks Cuddy whether she can take a medical decision for the patient, House, that of opting for a surgical intervention to treat his leg, which is completely different from what House had implicitly wanted even in Dr Cuddy's presence, Cuddy replies in the affirmative that it is possible for Stacy to do so as his health-care proxy. However, the American medical laws clearly state that a doctor can not accept a health-care proxy's decision that, in his views, is different from the patient's previously stated advance directive for the event that he becomes incompetent to take his own decisions. In such a scenario, the doctor can either go ahead and honour the patient's original advance directive, thus overruling the health-care proxy's wishes, or consult the hospital's ethics committee, or ask for a court order in case it is not an emergency.
