And in another plotline that I don't really care about or even understand due to the characters not really acting like human beings, Foreman and Taub watch as a pretty young PPTH employee flirts with Chase. Foreman says he paid her $100 to flirt with Chase and then slap him when he inevitably hits on her. What does that even prove? Didn't Chase say he stopped having sex so he'd be ready when the right woman came along? If he thinks the woman flirting with him right now is that right woman, then what would it prove if he hit on her or not? It doesn't really matter, since the employee eventually walks away from Chase looking disappointed. She then slaps Foreman violently and gives him his $100 back. She may want to hang onto that money, since she's totally fired now.
Taub does an ultrasound on Cyrus to find out how many new tumors he has. Meanwhile, Cyrus is talking to Jennifer about writing a will and putting her in it, and she's urging him to give that money to charities or family members instead. He may not have to give it to anyone just yet, though, as Taub says that, despite the tumor-growing drugs they gave him, he doesn't have any new tumors or cancers. Not only that, but the tumors he did have are also shrinking.
Back in the meeting room, Chase hooks Foreman up to the BP monitor again (WHY. I don't understand what this plotline is supposed to be or why it's even still happening) as he says that their missing tumor suppressing gene theory was obviously wrong. Foreman says Cyrus must have an autoimmune disorder and somehow created antibodies that fought his own tumors, which meant the tumor-growing drugs they gave him somehow made his autoimmune disorder better. Taub says Cyrus might not have cancer at all, and Foreman angrily says of course he does; the biopsies confirmed it and everything. His BP rises. "It could've been a false positive," he says, trying to be cheerful and stress-free. Hadley says if the biopsies were wrong, then Cyrus could have amyloidosis, and House says that sounds good enough to him and orders them to treat Cyrus for it. Foreman doesn't think they have enough proof to act on Hadley's theory yet, and his BP climbs. He accuses Chase of fixing the monitor somehow, and Hadley says she thought Foreman was the one who fixed BP monitors. "I KNOW IT'S RIGGED!" Foreman says. Taub says that Foreman's obvious rage issue shows that it's probably correct. "I TOOK A BETA BLOCKER!" Foreman reveals. So he cheated. So did Chase, who opens his fist to reveal a remote control and admits that he used it the last time, too. Thus, nothing has been proven and I care about even less than I did before.
Foreman says that giving Cyrus chemo for amyloidosis when his platelets are still low is insane and deadly. House says they don't have any other options unless Foreman thinks he can shout Cyrus's mystery illness away. He orders the chemo. They all leave except for Hadley, who is once again held back by House. She says there's no dirty little secret behind her negativity about Cyrus and Jennifer; she simply believes that we are who we are and that lotteries are stupid. Well, of course she does. She lost the Huntington's lottery.
House has been placed on punishment Clinic duty. "Janet Hemorrhoid!" he calls out to the waiting room loudly. Janet Hemorrhoid stands up and informs House that "Hemorrhoid" is not her last name, but her complaint. Which she obviously doesn't appreciate the entire waiting room knowing about. House says they'll have to work quickly, as he's about to lose his license for malpractice, as is the head of PPTH. Janet Hemorrhoid leaves. I guess next time she won't go to a free clinic. You get what you pay for. Wilson approaches and exposits that Cuddy quadrupled House's clinic hours. Why? It's not his fault Murphy Brown is so horrible. He did go there and apologize. Cuddy was the one who threatened to kill her mother. House says it's not too bad, as for some reason, he's zipping through his Clinic cases today. Wilson says Murphy Brown asked for another meeting with Cuddy and House. House refuses to attend, as, Wilson says, did Cuddy. Wilson has also decided that House is trying to ruin everyone's efforts to drop Murphy's lawsuit because he doesn't want to lose another connection to Cuddy. House says that makes no sense, since he obviously didn't put Murphy up to suing her own daughter and the hospital. Wilson insists that House still loves Cuddy, but he's sabotaging any chance at reconciliation by doing this. I think he might have sabotaged any chance at reconciliation when he married that other woman.
