Chase returns to the clinic, where Taub is waiting. He's hiding until House leaves the cafeteria. Taub explains that he's thinking three steps ahead because House is doing that with his surprise attacks. He recommends that Chase accept House's apology and come back because even though he's crazy. House makes them better.
Chase prepares to discharge the nun. He makes a lame "I'm in the book" reference. She tells him that six years earlier she was a nanny in Honolulu and the baby she was watching got hit by a car when she looked away. She wants to remake her life, which she describes as "running to God." Sad music. She eventually leaves and gets into a wheelchair. I originally typed that she got into a "wheelbarrow," which seems unlikely now that I'm looking at it.
House tells Chase that the nun was a hottie, which, as far as he's concerned, explains that Chase was grasping for an emotional life raft with someone unavailable. Chase insists that he has a date. At dinner, Chase is not interested in his date, who is blathering on about how she's an actress. She is boring. Chase tells her so. The date is over! Was that really worth having a separate location?
Chase goes home and the nun is outside his door. He tells here she's not supposed to be there. Or anywhere. She admits that she was running away and takes his hand. They kiss twice. Chase throws his crutches away as they enter his apartment. He's cured! It's a miracle! It's like "laying on hands" except, um, not with the hands. If you see what I'm saying.
The next morning, she puts on a t-shirt. I know that doesn't sound that fascinating, but I am committed to telling you what happens in this episode. She tells him that she had a life planned but then she met him. She assures him that she knows he's not the relationship type. Her new plan is to find a place to live and get her old job back. Then she can't hear him. He notices something weird about her neck. Her ears are ringing and she coughs blood on him. Exciting! In the car, he tells her an artery is causing problems. Problems that might include a stroke!
In the ER, Park is there, but Chase makes her stop doing whatever she's doing and follow his plan instead. The consent form is briefly a problem because the nun is babbling. Into the Operating Room!
Chase yells some medical stuff, and part of it is about a clot stopping her from bleeding out. House spots the dried blood on his scrubs and realizes that he was sleeping with her. The awkward scene is interrupted when Chase is called out to look at the blood flowing down her face. Taub and Adams insist that Chase shouldn't do the surgery since apparently there's a rule against operating on someone you're sleeping with, but House says Chase should do it. Not because he's trying to score points with Chase but because he's the better surgeon. Somehow House is in charge of this decision. I guess.
