Candice Bergen, Matthew Lillard, Cynthia Watros and Amber Tamblyn Guest-Star

Science and faith are called into question when a patient is admitted to the hospital following his reenactment of the Crucifixion. The patient, Ramon Silva, refuses to undergo the prescribed treatment, and the team learns that after his daughter's cancer was cured, he pledged an oath of self-sacrifice to God. With little time to save Ramon's life, the team struggles to understand his reasoning and seemingly extreme religious convictions, but eventually learn that faith is not an argument. Taub questions his wife Rachel about her relationship with an infidelity support group member and the team attends a co-worker's wedding where Wilson's relationship with Sam (guest star Watros) takes an unexpected turn. Then, when a man (guest star Lillard) puts his life on the line to save a stranger who fell onto the subway tracks, he emerges from the dramatic scene miraculously unscathed but then suddenly collapses. Both the hospital and the town become captivated by the man's selfless deed, but as the team works to diagnose his symptoms, they discover that the hero's seemingly life-changing deed failed to break old habits. House tries to avoid Cuddy's birthday dinner with her opinionated mother Arlene (guest star Bergen), and Taub draws unexpected attention when his face graces billboards advertising the hospital. As Taub and his wife reignite a physical relationship, Masters' (guest star Tamblyn) outside perspective helps him realize that it's time to take action on his crumbling marriage in the two-hour "Small Sacrifices/Larger Than Life" episode of HOUSE airing Monday, May 30 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
