The EMTs enter with Taddy, who gives Cameron a weak hello. House wants to see Taddy's crotch, but an EMT protests that a guy who vomited three units of blood should be admitted as soon as possible. House tells the guy that if he wanted to be a doctor, he should have done better in high school. "Bite me," the EMT responds. The EMT needs to start teaching a class on how to proper way to respond to House's jabs, and the rest of the opening credits cast needs to take it with the possible exception of Foreman and, after that "increasing amounts of lying line," Wilson. House cuts through Taddy's pants and says that the location of Taddy's rash implies that he had sex with Carnell. Taddy denies that he's gay or even good friends with Carnell, who barely had time for anything but schoolwork, wrestling, and working at his dad's junkyard. Taddy only knew Carnell because they were in the same frat. House checks out that rash as we get a close-up of Taddy's brief-covered crotch. House confirms that it isn't a fungus, and then asks Taddy to repeat what he said about Carnell's dad. Taddy repeats that Carnell worked at his dad's scrap metal yard during school breaks. House takes off.
House dramatically whips back the divider curtain in Carnell's post-op room and accuses Dad of lying. Again. You see, Dad told PPTH that he owned a construction company because he figured the hospital would treat his son better if they thought he had more money. House asks Dad whether Carnell took any souvenirs from the yard. Dad says he gave Carnell an early graduation gift of a small weight from the scrap yard to remind Carnell where he came from, as if Carnell would ever forget with his dad making him work there every time he came back for a visit. Dad made it into a keychain that Carnell carried around as a good-luck charm. House wants to see it. Dad doesn't know where it is or why it's even important.
House asks the Cottages where Carnell's clothes are. Cameron says that they're in his dresser in his regular room. House orders Foreman and Chase to bring the bureau to Radiology, and not to open it.
