Here is last nights episode recap for those who may have missed the show.
Words & Deeds
As emergency workers struggle to douse a raging blaze, a firefighter named Derek Hoyt walks out of the burning building intact. Suddenly, he gasps for air and becomes delirious. When he staggers back towards the building, he complains of being freezing.
Cameron examines Derek, who is covered in skin grafts. His last procedure was six months ago. His body temperature is wildly swinging up and down. She wants to refer him to House, who is currently at a preliminary hearing pleading not guilty to all charges. The judge sets an evidence hearing for a later date.
Back at the hospital, House gets the details on Derek's case. Thinking of the skin grafts, Chase suggests a hospital-acquired infection. House orders a blood culture and a round of antibiotics. Cuddy summons House to her office and orders him to talk to Tritter. She blames the entire situation on House. Tritter kept setting traps for him, and House continually fell into them. House actually seems somewhat chastened.
Cameron visits Derek and explains they think he has Mercer Disease, a common bacterial infection contracted in the hospital. Derek asks if Mercer makes everything look blue. Cameron immediately realizes that it's something else entirely. House suggests male menopause or really high estrogen and low testosterone levels. He instructs his team to run a hormone panel.
The doctors attempt to draw blood from Derek, but when they get the needles into his arms, he freaks out and demands that they be removed. He grabs Cameron and begins choking her as Foreman tries to restrain him. Foreman injects a sedative and Derek goes limp.
A very contrite House pays a visit to Tritter. He admits that he can be described as anything from arrogant to unhinged, but he has to act that way because of the constant, crushing pain he deals with. His pain can be described as intolerable only on a good day. He knows that he has handled it incorrectly. Tritter thanks him, but is sure that House didn't mean a word of it. Tritter says he will see him at the hearing.
Back at the hospital, the team updates House on Derek's case. They insist it has to be neurological. Foreman wants a CT for a frontal lobe tumor and an LP for meningitis. An absent House agrees and leaves. The team chases after him, wondering why he isn't shooting down their ideas. He says it is because he has to go upstairs and check himself into rehab.
Without House, the team starts their first differential diagnosis. Cameron immediately wants to consult House, but Foreman and Chase think this is their chance to grow up. And with House undergoing detox, he won't be much help. Chase recalls an old House comment: "Everybody lies." With all of the skin grafts Derek has had, he must be in tremendous pain. He must be hiding his pain to keep his job. They need to find the pain. Suddenly they are paged. Derek cannot breathe.
Chase quickly recognizes a heart attack and they stabilize him, but realizes it won't last long. Derek has been hiding a series of chest pains. Now they have to figure out what's causing these attacks. Cameron goes to see House and finds him puking in his rehab dorm room. House advises them to look for an external or environmental cause that all three attacks share in common.
After some thought, the doctors summon Derek's firefighting partner, Amy. Derek then suffers another attack. The doctors perform a battery of tests on Amy, who's clean of any spores, molds, toxins or possible physical causes. Cameron asks Derek if he's in love with Amy. He is unable to admit to it because Amy is engaged to his brother.
The team reports back to House to figure out a plan. When they theorizes that the only way to cure Derek is to end his love for Amy, House has a radical solution. They can fry his brain to clear any thoughts of Amy. A procedure like that will need Cuddy's permission, and the doctors are actually able to talk her into it.
Cameron explains the planned procedure to Derek. This electroshock therapy will wipe out Derek's memory. His feelings for Amy, his firefighter training and his childhood. Cameron begs Derek to tell Amy how he feels. If not, he's choosing to wipe out his entire life for a secret.
Tritter pays a visit to House in rehab because Cuddy goaded him into it. He's still not going to talk to the DA. House rails that Tritter's word means nothing. Tritter says he'll never trust an addict, and even House's actions lie.
The doctors perform the procedure on Derek and then test his mental faculties. They bring Amy and his brother in. Derek has no memory of either of them. The team informs House that everything has basically worked out. Later, Cameron and Amy observe Derek through a window. Cameron congratulates Amy on her upcoming wedding, but Amy has no idea what Cameron is talking about. She's not marrying Derek's brother nor do they even date.
The doctors place an emergency call to House, who's at his evidence hearing. Derek's memories were false. They fried his brain for nothing and whatever was plaguing him is still there. They talk through the symptoms and House orders his team to set up Derek with a selective vertebral angiography. As House limps out of court, the judge threatens to find him in contempt. He leaves anyway.
House has realized that all of Derek's issues go back to the initial thoughts on menopause. The test reveals spinal meningioma pressing on an artery and affecting Derek's brain. They need to schedule surgery to remove it.
At the trial, Cuddy is on the stand when House barges back in. The DA shows Cuddy the pharmacy log and asks if this indicates that House stole oxycodone from Wilson's dead patient. Cuddy explains that it does not. The DA states that Cuddy testified earlier that it did, but she presses on. Dr. Wilson informed her that House had tried to steal the same patient's oxycodone before, so Cuddy went down to the pharmacy and swapped out bottles. House stole a placebo. She has a pharmacy inventory report reflecting her order. Tritter vehemently protests that this report is obviously forged. The judge asks why Cuddy didn't come forward with this evidence earlier. Cuddy admits that she never thought it would come to this point. The judge, while making a point to chide House, declares that Tritter tried to make an example out of House and dismisses the case based on both Cuddy's testimony and her efforts to protect House. However, House is still guilty of contempt for walking out earlier, so it's a night in jail for him.
As the bailiff leads House out, Tritter stops him. House bristles for a threat, but Tritter merely wishes him luck and says he hopes he's been wrong about him.
At the hospital, Cameron explains to Derek that this latest treatment has worked. He can move on and begin creating new memories.
That night, Cuddy and Wilson visit House in jail. Cuddy is angry that House forced her to forge evidence and perjure herself. She makes it clear that she owns him now. It may entail clinic duty, unruly patients or extra hours. Whatever she wants, he's going to do it. She walks off. Wilson slips House a cup of medication from the rehab supervisor. House greedily gulps it down. Wilson realizes that the rehab supervisor has been slipping House Vicodin. House smiles, proud of his scheme. Wilson, distraught and despondent, worries that nothing has changed.

Thanks Wiired for the awesome sig
I've just read the start of the thread... something caught my eye: the diabetic ketoacidosis bit...
I have diabetes, had it for 28 years now from age of 5. Injected every day since. Anyway, I'm poorly controlled and have Ketones quite often.. and it feels like shit when you have them. And, there's this horrible smell that only I can smell (LOL! no puns!) that's totally indescribable (or unspellable). I'm constantly skinny cos of the acid eating away at the fat and muscle tissue.
Don't know why I share this crap with you, but just thought about letting you know cos it came up on a search for something else I'm about to post.!
Sorry to hear about that banned.
Back to House again here is last nights show recap.
One Day, One Room
Cuddy orders House to two days of nothing but clinic duty. He starts by assembling the many who think they might have an STD. Then he ambles out to the waiting room to see how many patients are left. Suddenly, a man clutches his ear and runs around, screaming in agony. House trips the man with his cane, holds him down and administers a paralytic agent. The man becomes frozen, but at least he's no longer making noise. Unfortunately, they need to intubate because the paralytic has stopped the man's breathing.
House gathers his team to discuss the man's case. House asks what right ear pain, psychotic behavior and dizziness might indicate. Foreman throws out an acoustic neuroma that started to hemorrhage, so House asks for an MRI. Chase mentions that the man could have been psychotic first and mutilated himself. House likes that idea too, and he asks for a full psych work up. He then tells the doctors to pour some alcohol into the man's ear and pull out the cockroach. House knew this was the cause all along. He only wanted a big case to get him out of clinic duty.
Cameron, making the rounds on clinic duty, sees an old, disheveled man who's most likely homeless. He hands her a note and says that the other hospital gave it to him but he cannot read. The note says that the man has a six centimeter cancerous mass in his right lung which is inoperable. The man asks if he can sleep in the hospital because it's cold outside. Cameron finds Cuddy and spills the truth about House and the cockroach patient. Cuddy angrily tracks House down and makes it clear, once again, that either he does clinic duty or she will confess about the evidence against him. He owes her.
House returns to clinic duty and announces to the waiting room that he'll give $50 to anybody who leaves without being seen. Cuddy pulls him back into her office, desperate for a solution. She offers House $10 for every patient he can diagnose without touching. However, he will have to pay her $10 for every patient he does have to touch. So House starts plowing through patients without touching any of them.
The test results come back from the earlier STD patients, and the first two are clean. The third is a 20-something blonde female named Eve who tests positive. Eve breaks down in tears at the news even though House reassures her that Chlamydia isn't all that bad. House tries to hand her some pills, but Eve yells at him to not touch her. House goes to tell Cuddy to get a new doctor for this patient. Eve has been raped.
Cuddy explains to Eve that the hospital will assign another doctor, but Eve insists on House. House says that he isn't interested in treating her because there is nothing to treat. She is perfectly healthy. Eve doesn't care, and only wants to talk to him. House comments that she just wants to reclaim power after being raped. Eve screams at him to leave.
Eve crashes in the clinic. Cuddy and another doctor attend to her, but she is unconscious and foaming at the mouth because of a pill overdose. The doctor tells House that she had talked to Eve for over an hour but the girl said nothing. When the doctor turned her back, Eve grabbed the pill bottle.
House waits for Eve to awake and he asks her what she wants. She only wants to talk to him - about anything. House goes to his team for advice, and they suggest he give the girl his conversation. Cameron angrily says that there is no way that Eve can pretend the rape did not occur. She needs to process it. House returns to Eve and explains to her that she can't blame herself for this. Eve says that she knows that already, but she still wants to talk about nothing.
Cameron's homeless patient is hooked up to a battery of machines and IVs. He pleads with her to stop the treatment because he doesn't want it and doesn't think he deserves it. Although she disagrees, Cameron unhooks the equipment. She visits him later and questions why he wants to suffer. The man asks her why her husband had to suffer. Cameron demands he tell her how he knows about her husband. The man admits that the nurse told him.
House and Eve discuss where they went to college. House still gets no answer on why Eve trusts him. She inquires whether anything terrible has ever happened to him. He hesitates, so Eve flips his own logic back on him. Not knowing what to do, House leaves to go seek counsel. Wilson thinks he should just tell Eve the truth. Cameron advises House to say his life has been wonderful so that the girl has some hope. Foreman suggests he just admit that his life has sucked so that she will see that she too can rebound. Chase notes that there is no wrong answer.
House returns to Eve's bedside and starts into his life story. He says that he was abused by his grandmother. His parents traveled and often left him with her. She was a strict disciplinarian. House never misbehaved when she was around because he was too afraid of being forced to sleep in the yard or of being made to take a bath in ice. He never told his parents. Eve asks if any of his story is true, and House assures her that it all is. She again asks if it is true. House replies that it is the truth for somebody.
Cuddy lets House know that Eve is pregnant. He breaks the news to the girl, then offers her the chance to terminate it. Eve isn't interested because she considers abortion to be murder. House asks her if she wants to take a walk outside to get some air.
Meanwhile, Cameron's homeless patient is still suffering. She tries to force pain medication on him, but he resists. The man says that if he dies suffering, then Cameron will always remember him. Nobody else will remember him. Cameron leaves the syringe next to his bed and sits down across the room. The man later struggles for breath and dies.
House and Eve sit in a park watching people jog by. They continue their philosophical discussion. Eve argues that eternity is what we live for, and House believes that our time on Earth is all we have. Eve refuses to believe that because then there are no ultimate consequences. She needs the comfort of knowing that this all means something.
Eve wonders if her attacker feels remorse for his actions. House asks why that matters. He then inquires why she trusts him. Eve explains that there's something about him, as if he is hurt too. House confesses that his story was true. Yet it wasn't his grandmother but his father who abused him. Eve begins to acknowledge what happened to her to House.
Back at the hospital, House informs Cuddy that Eve terminated her pregnancy and has been discharged from the hospital.
