This gives House a chance to finally talk to Wilson, who's busy trying to scrub in for one of those surgeries that oncologists apparently do. He says he went to Cuddy's house, but left without going to her door. "Huh," Wilson says, non-committal. House assumes that Wilson is processing the information in order to give him some advice, but Wilson says this huh is simply for acknowledgement purposes, and could be easily replaced with "ha" or "hmm." When Wilson says things like that, he reminds me of Data from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Not that I ever watched that show because I'm cool, okay? House clearly wants to be told what to do next, which is why Wilson's not giving it to him. "I can't tell you what's right for you," Wilson says. Ha! And that's not an acknowledgement ha, that's a "yeah, right!" ha. House points out that Wilson's never had a problem telling him what to do before. Wilson asks House if he wants him to tell him what to do. House would never admit to this, so he just says that acting inscrutable makes Wilson annoying. "Interesting ... " Wilson says, heading into the OR. "Holding things in can give you cancer!" House shouts after him. "A little late for the cancer prevention tips, but thanks anyway!" replies the OR patient.
Foreman checks up on his secret Cottage team who are supposed to be busy doctors but have plenty of time to do things like stay in a shut-in's house for days and take on extra cases. I'm not complaining, though -- I love seeing them back in differential action! Chase diagnoses meningitis, but Foreman says all tests have come back negative. Cameron is being a party pooper, and tells Foreman that he's playing a dangerous game taking on two cases at once, and could compromise patient care. Cameron knows a lot about compromising patient care because she gets yelled at for doing it often. Chase goes for stomach cancer. Foreman thinks porphyria is more likely. Well, if he's so good at coming up with the diagnoses himself, then why does he need Chase and Cameron? "Neither's perfect," Cameron says, so helpful. Foreman says they'll test for both. And by "they" he means Chase and Cameron.
