A visual examination of Fletch's blood shows that he has cerebral malaria. This was obvious all along, but since they ran all of Fletch's tests through a computer instead of looking at them manually, they didn't catch it. I guess that's why House makes them run their own tests. "Price of the electronic age," Cameron says. And of Foreman being in charge, I think. Foreman seems to think it, too.
Greta visits Fletch, who's very upset at the lack of wife. "Give her time to miss you," she tells him.
Back in Baltimore, House has been rightly placed on the "No-Fly" list, so he's stuck there until Stacy can work her lawyer magic and get him off of it. Even if she does, though, he's still on the "No-Airport" list, thanks to his hijinks with the lipstick, so it's not going to do him much good. Fortunately, this should effectively prevent another stupid episode about House and Stacy being stranded at an airport in the future. House says that his patient's chances of recovery are good, but that he's not sure about Fletch's marriage. Maybe, he says, they will work it out because they both "want it so much." Fletch loved Wifey so much that he thought he could change for her, but in the end, he couldn't. Neither can House or Stacy. "You know what Woody Allen said about relationships," Stacy says. "'Stick with one woman until your stepdaughter starts puberty, and then stick with her.'" Also, something about curry. Stacy gets on her flight. House is somehow allowed to be at the gate even though he's a security risk.
