He marches into Wilson's office and says Wilson is going to ruin his career for the sake of a dead woman he's going to get over as soon as he meets the next girl he falls in love with. Ouch. Wilson says he needs a flowchart to map out all the wrong things House just said. For real. Fortunately for Wilson, I have made him just the flowchart. I totally put it up on my blog so everyone can see it. House tries to save face by pointing out all the stuff he did to try to save CTB and how he put his own life in danger to do so, but Wilson doesn't have much sympathy to spare. The Cottages stop by to try to steer House back to their patient and give Wilson their regards. House announces that Wilson is quitting. Hadley reacts to the news with an odd lurch forward (could it be ... HUNTINGTON'S? And so I begin Huntington's Symptoms Watch 2008) and starts making apologies for interrupting at a "terrible time," although House did say last time he was in Wilson's office that he didn't want to be disturbed, so maybe someone could have gotten the hint and these apologies wouldn't be necessary. Taub just wants to know why Wilson is leaving, as if it's any of his business. Then again, Taub probably just thinks Wilson has to quit because he got caught having sex with someone at PPTH, as that's the only grounds for dismissal Taub is familiar with.
Hadley tries to steer the conversation back to the patient and her mystery pregnancy while Foreman sympathetically asks Wilson if there's anything they can do. Wilson would appreciate it if they told their boss to respect his decision, as if that would change House's mind at all. House says Wilson's decision doesn't deserve respect. Hadley says the patient is having hallucinations and her heart is still acting all funky. House leaves the office, saying the patient is pregnant on his way out.
House introduces himself to Lou by waking her up with a rapping on her bedside table and then pulling up her gown for another ultrasound. Lou is understandably confused at this turn of events. "Hey, who are you?" she asks. "This is Dr. House. He's too brilliant for introductions," Hadley says as she enters. He is, though. As for Taub, Kumar, and Foreman, apparently they decided to stay behind in Wilson's office for some awkward conversation instead of watching their genius boss at work. By the way, said genius boss just called Lou's vagina a "pleasure portal." Gross. But just when you thought he was being a jerk, he takes a moment to compliment Lou's youthful looking skin, which gives her face the appearance of a woman ten years younger than her age of thirty-seven. And he's found the baby. It wound up missing both the uterus and the fallopian tubes and implanted itself in her intestines, causing all of her symptoms and the rectal bleed. "Yank the fetus. If she survives the surgery, she'll be fine," House says with great sensitivity.
