Cuddy tells the board that they got their deal with GEHI Co. They give her a round of applause. Lather, rinse, and repeat for the PPTH employees. Even House, who is too cool to clap, looks slightly pleased. Cuddy leaves her office for the day, only to find that someone snuck into her unlocked office yet again -- this time to drop off a check from Martin for $850.00. Just in case you didn't know what that was all about, he helpfully (and neatly!) wrote "thumb surgery 1st installment" in the memo box. I would have gone with the slightly more clever "two thumbs up!" Cuddy obviously agrees with me, as she rips up his check. Or maybe she knows that PPTH is swimming in money now that GEHI Co. agreed to their exorbitant increase demands. New Porsche for Cuddy!
At 9 pm, Cuddy lies in bed with Rachel, who sleeps while her mother strokes her back. Just don't startle her awake, Cuddy, or she'll accidentally kill you with her super strength! Lucas decides to do some stroking too, but of Cuddy's ass. Cuddy removes his hand, then reconsiders and puts it back. And then her Blackberry goes off with an emergency page, no doubt from House. "You gonna get that?" Lucas asks. Cuddy just looks at us.
