Chase finds Cameron in the locker room. He asks Cameron if she wants to destroy the sperm. Stop pushing your luck, Chase. Cameron says she wants to be with Chase more than she wants her sperm. Chase asks Cameron when, if ever, she'll be ready to destroy it -- five, ten years down the line? After they have children? It doesn't appear so. "You don't have doubts. You just don't want to kill the only thing left of someone you loved," Chase says, and Cameron bursts into tears. Uh, what? This doesn't make sense. Frozen sperm is a terrible memento. She couldn't have kept his old sweatshirt or something? And why couldn't Cameron just say the real reason in the first place? Chase would have been much more understanding. Plus, how much did she really love her Poor Dead Husband if she fell in love with his best friend over PoDeHu's deathbed and married him out of pity in the first place? Chase says she doesn't have to kill the sperm after all, and Cameron says she never canceled their wedding plans. She says she has a hard time giving things up. Thirty years from now, she'll be sitting in a room full of cobwebs in a tattered old wedding dress with a rotting wedding cake beside her, just like Miss Havisham except Miss Havisham didn't have a little freezer full of sperm by her side.
House returns to the lobby balcony and raps on the railing with his cane to get the attention of everyone below. "I have an announcement. As you go about your day, I'd like you to be aware of the fact that I slept with Lisa Cuddy!" And thank you, THANK YOU to whoever's idea it was to then cut to a prolonged reaction shot from all the extras below, because that was freaking awesome. Even though Evil Nurse Brenda is no longer on the show to have the best one. Actually, she would have thrown an egg at House before he had the chance to start talking, so I guess it's for the best. Anyway, we get some eyebrow raises, some dubious looks, and then one nurse who's all like: 8-O. Could that be the Bobbin Bergstrom I keep seeing in the credits but have no idea who she is on the show? I also love the receptionist with the blank stare, who put a no-doubt important call on hold to hear this. With that, Cuddy comes running out of the Clinic to find the entire lobby staring at her. One nurse whispers in her ear. Behind her, two employees run off like "shit's about to go down right here! I am outtie 5000. Peace!" The look on Cuddy's face when she gets the news is kind of scary, but House just walks away calmly, satisfied that he got the reaction he wanted. And then it goes to a commercial so we can all realize why people work at PPTH, a place with no standards and no security, where doctors are shot and/or taken hostage on a regular basis and important clinical trials for revolutionary drugs are ruined. It's because of moments like this and the awesome dinner table discussion they provide for months to come.
