Loving hunky husband Ed Snow brings in Elise, who slapped him for pushing her to get up after three days in bed and admits she's out of control. Her hallucinations are just a side-effect of what works out must be a rare, hidden brain tumor or African sleeping disease, but either therapy is extremely dangerous. Samantha Campbell visits House's clinic with poisoning symptoms and fabulous breast implants 'for her husband's 40th birthday', but House elaborates his own theory... All possible causes for the African bug are excluded, except one: either spouse could catch it from adultery; when she reacts badly to the other therapy after both deny being a risk factor, Ed must decide whether to have her treated for it, and shows surprising instincts...
Did You Know?
When brainstorming about the patients condition, House makes a reference to how much she is sleeping and says that they should check for evil stepmothers. That much sleep usually requires poisoned apples. Jennifer Morrison would go on to play the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming in Once Upon A Time starting in 2011. See more
When doing a brain MRI, doctors need to put a special piece over the head to show the intersections of the brain so that, if something does show up, they have an accurate idea of exactly where it is; however, House's team does not use one when they give Elise an MRI to see if there is a tumor.

I didn't realize it was possible for a woman to be "unusually" irritable.
