Drugs (legal ones!), X-ray machines, comprehensive medical insurance, and Dr. House’s very own unconventional—yet effective—diagnostic skills.

Anything can happen in the hospital—especially with the unpredictable Dr. House around. But in sickness or in health, this cure for the common medical drama will give you loads of the best medicine: laughter!
