In order to keep his secret he just told the truth when anyone asked

This could be a 5 minute quickie or a 55 day slog. I don't mind which, so spoiŁ away if you wish.

Was the truth so outrageous noone believed him? The truth=the secret, correct? Did he deliberately tell the truth in such a way that people would not believe him?

Is the secret/truth about something he owned? His job? His name? His family? Something he did?

Something he does, then? For fun? Is the LTPF relevant? Does he do this thing for someone else? A group? A single person?

Is family relevant? His job?

Is that his "secret"? So when people asks what he does, he just says "I'm a spy" and they assume he's nuts?

************** SPOILER **************

Dr House (yes, that one on telly) is conscripted to help the CIA with a top secret mission. Being the curmudgeon that he is he just tells people 'I'm on a top secret mission for the CIA' and of course they reply with a double positive - 'Yeah right'. No real agent would ever say such a thing, but John Doe can as people would just assume he's fibbing


Well done.

Nice quickie.

Which ep is that from? I haven't seen a lot of the recent ones, but used to watch the show all the time.

Season 4, Episode 4: Guardian Angels
Original Air Date—23 October 2007
A woman seeing her dead mother stumps the recruits, especially once she begins seeing a recent victim.

I only know that because I used IMDB to check on what other programme one of the actors had been in
