Harvey Park is at the hospital to figure out why he grinds his teeth. Dr. Gregory House is talking with one of his patients and Dr. James Wilson about agreeing to go on a date with Dr. Allison Cameron. After being aggravated by their responses about what he should do, he chews out Park for spilling apple juice (originally thought to be urine) onto his jacket. House goes to apologize to Park to find him in the middle of a stroke.

When House gets the team together, he states that they need to be clever on this particular case due to the fact that Park has a metal plate in his jaw, giving them the inability to perform an MRI.

The next morning, the team discovers that Park has fulminating osteomyelitis, in which the infected tissue of his jaw broke off, blocking blood flow to the brain and was hidden from the scans of Harvey's metal plate.
