Cuddy and Rachel wait for House to wake up. Rachel says she wants House to come over to play with her like he used to. Cuddy doesn't feel like explaining why that's not going to happen right now, so instead she gets Rachel's hopes up and tells her to write a letter to House about her feelings. Yes, three-year-olds just love writing letters.
Taub shows up at PPTH to see Ruby. He says that when he was a plastic surgeon and made good money (unlike now. Way to hit the doctor jackpot, Ruby!), a middle-aged man came in for a tummy tuck. Preliminary tests showed that wouldn't be happening, since the guy's stomach was "full of cancer" and he was going to die. Taub had to tell him this, and the guy surprised him by not being that upset about it, saying that it was cool he was going to die at age 50 because he raised his kids well. Um, yeah, and now he won't get to see them graduate or get married or have kids of their own, but apparently he doesn't mind that. He knew he was going to leave the world a better place with his kids in it, and when Taub's life flashed before his eyes outside the strip club, he realized what a good thing that could be. This feels like a really selfish reason to want a child, somehow, but whatever. "I want to have this baby," he says, barely able to believe the words that are coming out of his mouth.
Chase finds Hadley in the locker room, thinking about how Darrien did the right thing by killing that guy, but she still couldn't deal with her guilt over it. Understandably, Hadley is worried that the same thing will happen to her. Chase says she should talk to a therapist, and Hadley surprises me by saying that she did, but it "didn't help." Well, it's only been, like, a few months, right? She really should have given it more time to be helpful. Plus, you know those therapy sessions were just the therapist asking Hadley about her life and her feelings and Hadley refusing to answer him because she loves her privacy. "Do you really think you have any idea what it's like to live with something like this?" Hadley asks Chase. As it happens, Hadley isn't that special. Lots of people on this show murder people for what they believe are the right reasons. And Chase is one of them. "Let's grab a coffee," he says. Hadley's eye makeup stays perfect, even with her tears.
