House is watching television in the comfort of his office when Foreman walks in, his hands full of files and his head full of outrage. It seems that House ordered MRIs for the entire maternity ward. House says that one of them is necessary, so Foreman will have to comb through every single file to figure out which one it is instead of dismissing them all outright. Throwing a wrench into the works of providing adequate healthcare to new or expectant moms -- way to take a stand, there, House! Foreman turns House's TV off -- he's watching a monster truck rally, by the way -- and asks him what he's supposed to do in this new position. House tells him to act like his employee and "bitch," and then pulls out a year's worth of discharge summaries and happily tells Foreman to get to work signing them, since they're Foreman's responsibility now. That doesn't make sense to me, since House was the doctor in charge of those particular cases, so I would have thought he'd still have to sign off on them, demotion or not, but Foreman just tells him to "keep it coming." He can take whatever House dishes out!
Cameron and Chase enter with some bad news. Anica has a mass on her pancreas and, according to Chase, two months to live. "On the bright side," House reports, his blue eyes shining with triumph, "I was right!"
Even though I'm soon to be a Sirius customer, I love the XM satellite commercial where David Bowie steals Snoop Dogg's bling. Mr. Bowie just looks so damn proud of himself.
Anica's scarfing down some chocolate pudding when Cameron enters her room. Anica asks to see House instead, as she apparently enjoyed his little game of pin-the-tail-on-Anica's-backbone before. After that, I personally would have wanted to see any doctor but House, but Anica's a different case, isn't she? Cameron says that she has some news for Anica -- news that Foreman, in his infinite supervisory wisdom, thought Cameron should be the one to deliver: "We found a mass in your pancreas. It looks like cancer." She sighs, and reluctantly explains that pancreatic cancer is super-deadly, with fewer than 20\% of its victims surviving past a year. "What's the treatment?" Anica asks, all matter-of-factly. Cameron says that they'll biopsy her pancreas and then "look at" her options. "Sounds good!" Anica says, still digging into her pudding. Cameron asks for her consent to do the biopsy. "Wish me luck!" Anica says. Hey, when Andi was all brave like that, everyone thought she was a hero. Cameron is more confused by Anica's behavior than she admiring of it, though.
