After the credits, we're still in Nolan's office. He asks House why he doesn't feel betrayed by or angry with Wilson for abandoning him for Sam. House claims he's fine again, but Nolan says he doesn't believe him, since House was late to the session, didn't notice the wall art, and took the amnesiac case without even trying to get out of it, even though Nolan thinks it's a fairly boring and routine case for House. House says it wasn't, and we go back to PPTH. House checks out a scan from the MRI (OF DOOOM!!) in which, despite Cuddy claiming there were no abnormalities, House spots a "loss of differentiation" between the gray and white brain matter. The Cottages get to giving their diagnoses until Nolan appears in the room to ask if he really needs to know all this. At least Andre Braugher gets to act with some other cast members, I guess. Chase wants to search Jane Doe's house for toxins, but, of course, that's going to be difficult since no one knows who she is. House says they might be able to trace the serial number on her heart monitor to the store that sold it and hope if they bring her there, the employees will recognize her. The Cottages nod appreciatively at House's genius, with Foreman saying "brilliant." Nolan very much doubts that it really went down like that. Cut back to the Cottages looking bored/confused/doubtful. "Longshot," Foreman scoffs. House says that even if the store employees don't recognize Jane, the store will probably be in her neighborhood and maybe the familiar surroundings will jog her memory. He even offers to take her there himself. Back in Nolan's office, Nolan comments that it's unusual for House to spend any time with his patients, let alone go on outings with them. That's true; he usually only does that when the patient is an annoying girl who got raped or a guy who needs to commit suicide to save his son. Which is bad news for Jane Doe. House says he's sure Jane Doe was boring before she lost her memory, but her current situation made her interesting to him and had the added bonus of getting House away from Wilson. Nolan thinks House was also avoiding going back to his apartment and the scene of his pre-hospital hallucinations and drug abuse. House says no, as by this point, he'd already been home.
