Synopsis by Hal Erickson
House (Hugh Laurie) finds a kindred spirit in the form of Adam (Braeden Lemasters), a 10-year-old autistic boy suffering from chest pains. Due to his brain disorder, Adam has absolutely no social or anger-management skills whatsoever--clearly a boy after House's own heart. This situation proves most disturbing for Wilson (Robert Sean Leonard), who arrives at the conclusion that House must be suffering from latent autism himself. . .especially when House pitches a fit because the blood-stained carpeting in his office (a souvenir of his shooting) has been replaced with a clean new rug. Meanwhile, 17-year-old Ali (Leighton Meester) persists in her romantic pursuit of House, making no secret of her lustful yearnings for our hapless hero.
