Just like all those cardiologists before them, the Cottages find nothing wrong with Donny's heart. Chase is ready to give up, but Foreman is in the Halloween spirit, so he has other ideas: namely, digging up Donny's paternal line and testing their remains. Great-grandpa and grandpa came up as skeletons, but Dad is represented by a bowl of gross. That's because he had a sealed casket and thus was decomposed by only anaerobic bacteria, who apparently leave liquefied purification behind because they are jerks. I did way too much research on that just now, by the way. Yuck. Foreman uses this time with Chase to talk about how he obviously had problems entering the ICU earlier. Chase admits that he almost had a panic attack in there. "I've crossed some line and I'm having trouble getting back to the other side," he says with all the drama. Foreman offers to have Donny moved to the only other room at PPTH if that'll help Chase, but he says no because then Cameron will get all nosy and he doesn't want to tell her what happened even though everyone else knows by now. Even Cuddy knows more than Cameron does, and that's just embarrassing. Cameron walks in to find that Foreman and Chase are taking the great-grandfather and grandfather's bodies respectively, leaving her to test the bowl of Dad. Can you imagine being the prop department on this show? "We'll need two skeletons and a bowl of green sludge. Make it look like human remains after a round with anaerobic bacteria. Here are some pictures to use as a guide."
House is just about to go home for the night when a woman walks into his office. She wants to talk to him about Donny's case, since she "read in the paper" that House was treating him. Um... which paper did she read that in, exactly? The Very Specific Times? The We Know Way Too Much Herald? And how/why would they find out that Donny was being treated by House without wondering: a. why a diagnostician was treating a guy who simply fell off a roof; and b. why House was allowed to treat patients at all since he doesn't have a medical license. Oh well. Basically, the woman has no interest in seeing Donny, but she does have an interest in his case since the newspaper also said he was being looked at for genetic conditions (again, how could they possibly know this??) and she and Donny have a son together that Donny doesn't know about. House hands her a phone and instructions on how to call Foreman to tell him this "cool information." But will it be reported by Every Single Thing Daily? It can go under the headline story "Woman Eats Oatmeal For Breakfast; Tops With Raisins."
