Greta tells Foreman that Fletch's golf trip was more like one last drinking binge through the Florida Keys before he got married to his totally unfun wife.
Chase asks Fletch about drinking and drug use, specifically amphetamines. "No," Fletch says. Chase informs him that he tested positive for them. The elevator closes before Fletch can try to claim that when he said "no" he actually meant to say yes, but, you know, the aphasia bedspread Lean Cuisine slacks.
Wifey tells Cameron that she and Fletch decided on to have a "different kind of life" when they became engaged. Apparently, she, too, has some aphasia, since I believe that she meant to say "when we got engaged, I took that as free license to start turning Fletch into the type of man I wanted him to be, rather than the man he actually was."
Of course, Greta's got a different take on the matter. Fletch has cleaned up his act, but the resulting lack of excitement in his life was apparently giving him trouble sleeping. He started taking sleeping pills to fall asleep, and then needed amphetamines to wake up. And then he ate fried banana and peanut butter sandwiches and died on his toilet.
As Chase is starting to wheel Fletch into the MRI tube, Fletch grabs Chase's arm and tells him to "keep the stain. Knife can't force." He seems worried, and Chase interprets his comments to mean that he doesn't want his wife to know about the drugs. Chase assures him that they won't tell her until Cameron lets something slip like she always does, and Fletch relaxes.
The MRI has shows some swelling and an old scar. Foreman's not sure what the scar's about, since it isn't in the right location to have anything to do with aphasia, and his questions about it to Fletch are met with an annoyed "what is the durable?"
Back at Plotimore Contrivance Airport, House finds Stacy and hands her some coffee from a paper bag. Who stores full cups of hot coffee in a freaking paper bag? I would think that even people with a cane could use one of those egg carton holders. Stacy lowers herself to accepting House's offer, and they both get a chance to do a crappy job of acting like those coffee cups have any liquid in them. House asks Stacy what they should talk about now, and the show cuts to a commercial break to give us all time to recover from the incredible disappointment and dread of what's to come.
