Summary: Legendary jazz musician John Henry Giles is checked into the clinic and when he's told he's dying from ALS, he signs a DNR to avoid a slow death. House disagrees with the diagnosis and goes against everyone's wishes when he violates the DNR to save Giles' life. The decision lands House in court, drives Foreman to consider taking another job, and results in Giles' paralysis worsening. But when the patient inexplicably starts getting better, the team has to figure out the mystery in reverse and find out why his condition is improving. Meanwhile, Dr. Foreman meets with an old friend who offers him a West Coast partnership.

Review: House Birthday Blogathon 2005 continues!! Great episode, more on House's emotional (or lack there of) devolution after his infarction 5 years ago. He obviously has respect for Giles, so it all worked really well. I applaud the writers for crafting this backstory development so well. Also, great revelations on how well Wilson understands House's inner workings, especially when it's nonverbal.

Dr. Wilson: (to House) Some doctors have the messiah complex – they need to save the world. You have a Rubik's complex – you need to solve the puzzle.

Dr. Wilson: So your philosophy is, if they don't want treatment they get it shoved down their throat, but if it might cure their paralysis, Whoa, you'd better slow down.
House: Yeah, My old philosophy used to be ‘Live and Let Live', but I'm taking this needlepoint class and they gave us these really big pillows.
Dr. Wilson: What's your philosophy on employee relations?
House: That's a very tiny pillow.

Marty Hamilton: You enjoy working with Dr. House?
Dr. Foreman: Not the word I'd use . . .
