House had taken on a fake case to get out of clinic duty, which meant Cameron had nothing to do, so she went to the clinic to help out. She was assigned an older homeless patient who had discharge documents from another hospital. As she read them, she found that the man had terminal cancer and had only days to live. After confirming with him that he understood the prognosis, he asked if he could spend the night in the hospital and Cameron had him admitted.
However, the patient refused all pain medication. As Cameron struggled to get him to accept it, he told her he wanted to be remembered. Cameron swore to remember him, but the patient once again asked why she should bother. When she tried to comfort him, he told her that he had wasted his life and didn't deserve to be remembered.
