Wilson and Foreman in House's room. Wilson says that House would never leave Chinese food rotting in his living room. Foreman says the suitcases are still there. A call comes in on House's cell, reporting that House no-showed a hooker two nights ago. They check the outgoing calls. They include hooker, Chinese food, Wilson and Mystery Number!
House hobbles around, and the floor makes noises like it's close to collapse. Then it collapses! House falls about twenty feet to the lower floor, which cannot be good for his leg. He looks around with what looks like Epiphany Face.
Foreman and Wilson bust into Andre Braugher's office to tell him that House is missing. He doesn't want to tell them where he is, but they think he's a danger to himself. He admits that there are other ways to reach oblivion. Foreman and Wilson dismiss the idea of Vicodin overdose because that should be impossible by this point. But then they remember that House's last patient was a heroin addict. Andre Braugher figures they're done here. I've just looked it up, and Andre Braugher was playing Dr. Nolan. Anyway, Wilson says they need to get to the patient's home.
Now a woman on a chair is looking at House, asking him about God. I don't recognize her at all, but after some research, I can report that this is Stacy, who was House's girlfriend back in the first two seasons. House dismisses the idea that falling through the floor was a sign. He denies having even thought of that, although he admits that part of his brain is currently talking about it. Stacy says, "I lived with you for years, I know you believed in love."
House and Wilson in the cafe. House wants Wilson to take the fall for flushing the season tickets. Because he's got cancer and he'll get off. Wilson would prefer not to spend his final months in jail. Or in endless hearings. House tells him he doesn't want to lose this time with him. Wilson nods. I think House might be a little disappointed as he says thanks. As House walks away, Wilson changes his mind and says he won't take the fall. House asks him not to do this to him. Man, what a jerk. Wilson says House needs to learn to live without Wilson to bail him out. House doesn't want to learn the lesson that he'll always be alone. Wilson says he needs to do this for House. House looks sad.
