A 10-year-old autistic boy clutches his chest and screams in pain, but test after test proves negative. Meanwhile, House disrupts hospital routine because Cuddy won't replace the carpeting installed in his office following the shooting. He wants the old bloody carpeting back. And Ali (Leighton Meester), the 17-year-old with a crush on House, is back in the clinic. She's suffering, she says, from a "rhino thing" and wants House to listen to her heart and lungs. So she takes off her shirt.
