HOUSE IS ON A MISSION TO GET HIS HANDICAPPED
PARKING SPOT BACK; HOUSE AND THE TEAM TAKE ON THE CASE OF
A TEENAGE GYPSY WHOSE FAMILY REFUSES
ALL MODERN MEDICAL TREATMENTS
ON �HOUSE� TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 6 ON FOX
16-year-old Stevie Lipa is admitted to Princeton Plainsboro Teaching Hospital with a serious respiratory condition and internal bleeding. Oddities of his case land him under House and the team�s care, but at the moment, House is irritated to learn that new hospital researcher Dr. Julie Whitmer has been assigned his handicapped parking spot by the hospital entrance. Since she�s in a motorized wheelchair (and he has to walk), he asks her to give up the parking spot, but she refuses. House, determined to get a parking spot closer to the hospital entrance, appeals to Cuddy, who dares him to prove how much he wants the spot by spending one week in a wheelchair � a bet House takes on. As the team tries to get personal history information from Stevie, they can�t seem to get a straight answer out of him, and it�s revealed he�s from a family of gypsies. Stevie�s parents arrive with homeopathic remedies; they won�t consent to House and the team�s suggested course of action, and refuse all modern medical treatment. As Stevie�s body continues to bleed internally, Foreman makes the risky decision to sidestep Stevie�s parents and appeals directly to the teenage patient, putting his medical license on the line while asking Stevie to lie to his parents in the �Needle in a Haystack� episode of HOUSE airing Tuesday, Feb. 6 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
