So he heads right for Freedom Master in the common room. But once he gets a good look at the guy, his resolve to apologize seems to weaken. Beasley runs up and calls group time before he can build it back up again. She opens group with an announcement: in two weeks they are going to have a Talent Show! Seriously? SERIOUSLY? What a terrible idea. If these people were capable of participating in a talent show then they'd probably be able to live in the outside world. Paranoia shoots the idea down immediately, but Beasley persists, suggesting that Alvie do "one of [his] songs." Alvie takes offense to this, saying that he raps, not sings. And he doesn't even rap, really. Two or three verses is not a rap. Beasley tells him to get writing on a rap, but he says he's all about the freestyle. Glasses girl says she has no talent. Beasley asks Freedom Master for a second opinion on that. " ... " says Freedom Master. Yeah, what a great idea this talent show was. House asks Beasley why she's even bothering to ask Freedom Master a question they know he won't answer. Beasley says he might, sooner or later, because "things pass." Has Beasley been a psychiatrist for just ten minutes or something? Mental illness doesn't "pass." Not the really severe kind that makes someone think he's a superhero who can fly or causes a guy to hallucinate an affair with his boss that we're all supposed to forget about. House says you can't just talk and hope things get better -- you have to make it happen. He decides to make it happen right now, as he follows both Freedom Master and Gabby's line of sight to a spot in the nurse's station. He thinks Freedom Master had a point about Gabby's stolen voicebox after all, as he sees that they're both looking at a music box. Beasley calls for an orderly, but House promises her that he isn't having a psychotic break. Which makes sense, seeing as he isn't psychotic. He was in Season 5, but not anymore! Beasley accepts earnest promises from her patients because she is terrible at this.
