In the hallway, Chase notes that Taub was almost as out of it in the meeting room as House. Taub says he's worried about Ryan's yearbook and thinks the others should be concerned, too, but Chase doesn't think it's a big deal, saying he fantasized about killing his teachers when he was in school, too. And then he grew up and murdered a patient, so... yeah. Martha says she didn't want to kill anyone, but she did think about torturing people slowly in her basement, "preferably with acid." Chase and Taub just stare at Martha and make mental notes to always always always stay on her good side or, if not, restrict her access to acid and basements. Martha keeps going, though, asking if any of them fantasize about torturing and/or killing House like she clearly does. Despite all of this, the other three get on the elevator with crazy homicidal maniac Martha. Taub says maybe the yearbook isn't such a big deal after all. "Unless it is," Chase says, the wheels in his head turning; "someone shot House." YES. FINALLY. THE WRITERS ACTUALLY REMEMBERED THAT THIS HAPPENED. THANK YOU.
Wilson finds House hiding in an exam room and says he considered sending Chase to tell House what to do with Cuddy instead of going himself, but ultimately didn't because he thinks House might be too stupid to get the irony. House says Cuddy doesn't need him at her side being "artificial support for her artificial problem." "She's fine," he decides. Wilson knows House very well, but even he seems shocked by this. Martha enters, and Wilson takes off, warning House not to screw things up because he doesn't want to "clean up the mess." Then maybe he just shouldn't. I don't know why he bothers, honestly. It's not like House was cleaning up any messes with Sam dumped Wilson. In fact, I recall him specifically trying to avoid doing things with Wilson during that time.
