Wilson and House compare notes about Carly, and Wilson brings up Vogler and how his desire to cure more commonplace diseases such as cancer are a bad omen for a guy who treats people with African sleeping sickness. House shrugs it off, saying that he's been through three regime changes at this hospital and he's still there. Wilson tells him to put on the coat. "It itches!" House whines. Wilson says he'll do a bone scan on Carly. House throws a pill in the air and catches it in his mouth.
Orthopedic surgeon Dr. Simpson is immediately annoyed to see House yo-yoing outside his operating room. House asks him about a knee surgery he did that resulted in the patient's being unable to speak. Simpson is still bitter about the case that raised his malpractice insurance premiums, and says that nothing happened during the surgery that would have rendered the guy unable to speak, which is why they ended up settling for over a million dollars. If I were the medical malpractice insurance company, I would not have given that much money to someone who had no proof that there was anything wrong with him, but that's just me.
