Re: House 5x06 "The Itch" - Discussion and Spoilers
Interesting how of the four relationships shown in the montage at the end, House is the only one who doesn't take seemingly positive action. The other three all go through with it, but he chickens out and turns around. Or maybe it's not "chickening out".
Cameron wasn't exactly at her best, though she was her usual compassionate self. The problem with moving the guy to the hospital was addressed - I think - in the plot device of House's unwillingness to "fight" with Cuddy.
Build a man a fire, and he'll be warm for a day. Set a man on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
