Night falls on PPTH. House reads through the applications. He calls one applicant, who answers the phone with "Yo yo, it's Trev, what up?" Apparently, House's phone can dial back to 1997. That's cool. House asks Trev to come in for an interview tomorrow, so Trev gets all excited and brags to some nearby friends, who make fun of him. House hangs up on the entire group.
A sleepy Wilson reports to a nursing station, where a non-Evil Nurse Brenda, but still angry and sarcastic, nurse says that Wilson's emergency page didn't come from PPTH. Wilson phones his hotel room, where House is busily searching the hell out of it for his guitar. He hasn't found it yet, and Wilson says he's "in awe of the kidnapper's tactical brilliance," if not oncology skills. House counters by turning on Wilson's hotel TV, which has TiVo, and erasing all of Wilson's favorite telenovela episodes, including the season finale. "Bring. It. On," House says for the benefit of the promo-makers.
Well, well, well! It looks like Megan's feeling much better after the alcohol infusions. But wait -- Sally Field reports that Megan is "doing this thing with her mouth" and has been for the last two hours. Cuddy checks out a gasping Megan and says she's screaming. Maybe she's screaming in joy at having more party juice flowing through her veins, but I doubt it.
The next morning, House is actually at work before Cuddy, who tells him that his little alcohol treatment idea was wrong and Megan has pancreatitis now. House says it could have been caused by the IV alcohol treatments. Cuddy pretends not to care, as she's now using reverse psychology to make House care. She says House needs a team to bounce ideas off of, and that's final.
Instead, House bounces ideas off of his Magic 8-Ball. Cuddy comes in, her resolve to stop enabling House by being his person to bounce ideas off of completely crumbled in the face of Megan's impending death. She can't wrap her head around the idea that Ben wouldn't know about any of Megan's problems. House is more concerned with a box on his desk, which he opens and then takes into Wilson's office. He tosses the box on Wilson's desk with a stony glare. Wilson looks inside the box and finds disassembled guitar parts. "Oh...my...God!" he says perfectly. "This guy means business...this reeks of boldness." Wilson loves how bold the guitar-napper is. Humorlessly, House says he is not hiring a team, no matter what. Wilson says that when you tighten guitar strings enough, they scream. Then he makes a guitar-string-screaming sound, which sounds a lot like Megan's screams. So bold.
