He goes to Wilson's office first. Wilson says he doesn't know where House is and doesn't have much to say about it, since Cuddy is the one who's dying and House is trying to make it about himself. "I'm not playing," Wilson says. Cuddy is sure House will show up and be with her through this, but Wilson isn't so hopeful. He says either House will be able to get over himself and be with Cuddy, or he'll break a woman with terminal cancer's heart.
Taub tells Ryan's parents about the brain surgery he has planned. They give their consent, but that's not all Taub wants to tell them: their son may also be plotting to blow up his entire school. Ryan's parents aren't thrilled about this, but refuse to believe that Ryan would actually do anything to hurt anyone. Dad thinks Ryan was just messing around. Taub says he thinks it might be more serious than that. Ryan's parents don't; "I really think he'll come out of it," Mom says. Dad just doesn't want anyone else to find out about this, or else their son could be expelled from school and then he'll never blow up a good college. "Focus on keeping him alive," Dad says.
Taub is so desperate that he asks for Martha M. Masters' advice in the OR balcony. Martha, who freaking loves to tell on people, says the odds that Ryan would actually do anything are very low. So I guess she's telling Taub to do nothing? Oh wait; "the fallout could be huge" if Ryan did do something, Martha adds. Then again, she continues, Taub may be over-identifying with the patient and thus "extra-protective." "Or, alternatively -- " Martha starts. "You suck at this!" Taub says. "Hate the statistics. Not the statistician," Martha nerds. Taub looks like he wants to blow the statistician up with a pipe bomb.
Foreman and Chase find the clot in Ryan's brain. But as soon as their little tool thing touches it, it disintegrates in a most un-clotlike manner. They wonder what that was.
The entire Bolivian army aim their weapons at an abandoned building with House Cassidy and the Sundance Cuddy inside. As they load their guns, House talks about going to Australia and singing at a karaoke bar that has songs from every successful 80s Australian musician. Also, "their barbecued shrimp is amazing," House claims, although I doubt it. I hear they just throw those shrimp on the barbecue. Very careless. House helps himself to a candy bar, saying all this talk of food made him hungry. Cuddy notes that this is her third dream where House has eaten candy. Really? I don't remember him eating candy in the first dream. He was just finishing eating something when he walked into scene. I guess that was candy? Maybe Cuddy should dream a little more clearly for the rest of us who have to watch. House doesn't think that's important, even though I'm sure it will be. Cuddy says she was hoping House would be able to handle this, but maybe he can't because he really is ten years old after all. "I can do better," House says, like always. Cuddy says it might be too late. With that, they both jump out into the light to face the firing squad. Cuddy shoots a few rounds, then realizes that House isn't actually there. Oh, snap! He totally acted like he was going to run out with her, let her go, and jumped back! I hate it when that happens. So embarrassing. "House!" Cuddy says, looking around until she's stopped by a freeze frame and gunshot sounds, just like how the movie this scene is paying homage to ended.
