Synopsis by Hal Erickson
At an offtrack betting parlor, House (Hugh Laurie) meets Anica Jovanovich (Cynthia Nixon of Sex and the City fame), whose caustic wit and alcoholic capacity nearly matches his own. After Anica suffers a seizure, House diagnoses pancreatic cancer, but she seems curiously unconcerned. As it turns out, Anica has a history of crying wolf about various medical ailments so that she can make herself feel important--but this time it may be the real thing. All this intrigue is played against an ongoing war of words between House and Foreman (Omar Epps), who is temporarily in charge of the clinic.
