The operation involves heavy machinery, which I hope is not being operated by that awful Dr. Simpson. Or Vogler, whose chairman of the board privileges probably allow him to do it.
Chase wonders if House is going to fire him. Cameron doesn't think so. Foreman says that if he were House, he'd fire Chase. Foreman might want to read that book about winning friends after Cameron is finished with it. Chase wonders how House knew that Carly would need a transplant before they did. Cameron says that House is just amazing like that. Chase points out that, usually, when House is amazing, he rubs it in all their faces about how cleverly he figured out this answer. But this time, he's been conspicuously quiet.
Because any and everyone can just enter this poor woman's room and do whatever they want, Chase rifles through Carly's possessions. He finds a bottle of ipecac.
Cameron tells House that they just stopped Carly's heart in preparation for the donor heart, and that House's "dumb patient" -- dumb as in he can't speak, not that he's stupid, since that qualifier would encompass all of House's patients -- scheduled an appointment to see him. "I wanted you to know Chase is worried that you're going to fire him," Cameron then says, because she sucks so bad I can't believe everything on House's desk hasn't been sucked into the vacuum her suckiness creates. House says that if Chase is scared, he'll be that much more careful in the future.
House and Cameron walk out into the hallway, where Cameron says she thinks Chase would perform better if he had some reassurance that his job was not in jeopardy, and House tells her to "stop it with the book." He asks her what her new attitude is about, and Cameron responds that people always "dismiss" her because she's "a woman" and "pretty" and "not aggressive." And also because she has nothing of value to add to this show and is really annoying and a tattletale. "My opinions shouldn't be rejected just because people don't like me!" she says. Well, I think that's ridiculous. House says that everyone likes her. "Do you?" Cameron asks. Silence. "I have to know." GOD, Cameron, if you wanted to be treated like a professional, you should act like a professional, not some fifth-grader passing a "do you like me? Check 'yes' or 'no' note to your crush during math class. I think House is supposed to look conflicted here over which answer to give, but he just looks bored. "No," he finally says. Ha ha! "Okay," says Cameron, and walks away to go put herself on the transplant list cause her heart just got BROKEN!
