House isn't done yet, though, as Hadley follows him into the hallway to demand that they give Lou the option to keep her baby, even though that's pretty much impossible. Not completely impossible, though: I saw this special on Discovery Health where a woman managed to give birth to a health baby boy that was implanted in her abdomen. Not only that, but I think the kid was also part of a set of triplets, the rest of whom managed to stay in the uterus and resist the urge to go out exploring. That's pretty rare, though, and House has no interest in seeing if it'll happen this time around. He's already decided that Lou doesn't want to keep her baby. Hadley says they don't know that, and it is possible to transplant a fetus. House says killing the fetus attached to patient's intestines is going to be dangerous enough. Implanting it is just crazy talk. But Hadley persists, so House chalks her sudden pro-life leanings up to her Huntington's diagnosis and says he wouldn't have insisted she get tested if he knew it would color all of her medical decisions. Hadley says death sentences tend to have an impact on a person. "People DIE. You, Amber -- everyone. Don't act like you just figured that out," House says; "I gave you a diagnosis. You don't like it, there are exits on every floor." Hadley, just punch him in the face and quit. Life's too short for this. Especially your life.
Hadley returns to Lou's room with the fetus-killing surgery consent forms. Hadley tries to cushion the blow, but there's no need. Lou has no qualms about removing the fetus. She's all ready to sign the papers and everything. Wow, you really called that one, Hadster.
House heads down to the ER to hang out with a female Cottage with a normal lifespan. He makes fun of Cameron's patient for being fat before asking her if she's talked to Wilson lately. She already knows where this is going, and says House can't make her try to convince Wilson to stay at PPTH. "I am not your errand girl. Best thing about leaving you," she says. Bullshit, Cameron. You loved running errands for House. That's why you always volunteered yourself to open his mail and stuff. When the patient asks if he's listening in on an ex-lovers' quarrel, he's made fun of for being fat again. Cameron pulls House aside and tries to explain to him that grief is different for people. House may not be able to feel it, but other people do. House reminds Cameron that she knows what it's like to lose a loved one, so she's the perfect candidate to talk to Wilson about how to deal with it. Oops! It turns out that Cameron dealt with it by moving and getting a new job. Time for Plan C, House.
