First Aired: November 23, 2004
A 16-year-old boy has night terrors after getting hit on the head by a lacrosse ball, and House (Hugh Laurie) immediately suspects he's a victim of sexual abuse. Later, he changes the diagnosis to MS, and that night the youth disappears from his hospital bed. In the clinic, House treats a baby whose mother has an aversion to inoculation, and a man with an infected knee who's almost as obnoxious as House is. Dan: Scott Mechlowicz. Andy: Robin Thomas.
