Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Alfredo Ignacio Serricho), the handyman working on Cuddy's house repairs, suffers an apparent athsma attack and falls off her roof. Feeling responsible, Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein) is unable to treat the man, so House (Hugh Laurie) takes over. But before any treatment can be implemented, Alfredo develops a stunning array of horrifying symptoms, each one seemingly cancelling out the last--leading House to the conclusion that neither the fall nor the "athsma" is the root cause of the man's plight. Elsewhere, Foreman (Omar Epps) nervously seeks out a "politically correct" treatment for a hypersentive black patient (Charles Robinson) suffering from high blood pressure.
