Cuddy arrives at the pharmacy, where an Andy Dick lookalike tech says they received twice the amount of meds they ordered and he can't find a purchase order to show to the drug company to prove their mistake because they've all gone missing. Which is apparently Gail's fault, but she's sick today and Andy Dick wants to make absolutely sure he doesn't get blamed for this. Instead, he can be blamed for seriously wasting Cuddy's time. Cuddy's about to leave when a thought occurs to her. She asks Andy Dick which drug they got the double order of. "Vicodin?" she guesses, because it's all about House. But this time her hunch is wrong, as Andy Dick says the double order was for ephedrine. Something about that causes Cuddy to order sick Gail into work ASAP.
Nurse Assistant is ordered to get Cuddy's 8:30 appointment a cup of coffee while she attends to an emergency page to the OR, where a surgeon whines that House bribed the maintenance people to make it extra-cold in there so Dr. Crybaby would hurry up and finish, thus freeing the room up for House's patient. Yes, because nothing makes you speed up like having frozen fingers when you're trying to do delicate work. Cuddy wants Dr. Crybaby to deal with this on his own, but he says he's busy doing surgery on a patient who is about to freeze to death. Cuddy is left to call the heating guys and make them turn it back on. She might also want to fire them for taking money to turn the heat off at the expense of the health of a patient. And then she can fire House for doing the bribing in the first place, because his patient isn't any more important than the guy who now has icicles in his spleen.
