House almost makes it through the rest of the day without a visit from Wilson, but as night falls, he makes an appearance to lecture him on his working relationship with Cuddy. He says House has to figure out a way to work with her now that they aren't dating anymore. "No, I don't," House says. He knows that Cuddy feels incredibly guilty for dumping him and so is trying to make it up to him by letting him do whatever he wants. He's planning on taking advantage of that. "You're pummeling an opponent who isn't fighting back," Wilson says. Yeah, but he's getting a giant flatscreen TV in his office out of the deal, so I don't see the downside.
Meanwhile, Taub wants to test Danny. He tells Martha he's going to walk into Danny's room with a little hockey stick pen and wait for him to tell him how much he loves hockey, too. He walks in and asks Danny how he's feeling. Danny says his arm still hurts. Taub whips out his hockey stick pen and writes a note in Danny's chart. Danny notices the pen and asks about it. Taub says his nephew bought it for him because he's such a big hockey fan. He waits for Danny to talk about how much he loves hockey, only for Danny to say he hates hockey. Martha holds in her laughter and gives Danny some pamphlets on shelters for mentally ill homeless people in the hopes that he'll take her up on them. Danny brushes them aside, though, because his arm is currently in a lot of pain. Martha and Taub assume he's talking about the burnt arm, but Danny says it's the other one this time.
House rolls up outside PPTH in something much bigger than a Segway -- a monster truck. I'm pretty sure those aren't street legal, but okay. He rolls out a rope ladder for the Cottages to use to get inside so they can do the differential inside House's ridiculous new toy. Over the sounds of House's stereo and the monster truck engine, they decide that Danny doesn't have schizophrenia after all, since the pain in his arm shows he's getting worse and the medication they gave him should have made him better. Foreman wants to test Danny's DNA for early onset Parkinson's, but House says there are plenty of other genetic diseases it could also be and testing will take weeks and therefore cut into House's honeymoon time, which is unacceptable. He says they just have to find Danny's parents and see if they have any genetic diseases, and then they'll have a good idea of what Danny has. Martha says Danny won't tell them who he is or who his parents are. House says that three doctors and one genius almost-doctor should really be able to outwit one homeless junkie. With that, the light turns green and he roars ahead. He doesn't go off a ramp and crush a bunch of old cars, though, so it's kind of boring. Not to mention he probably went through an entire tank of gas during that five-minute differential.
Taub enters House's office and sees a brand new flatscreen TV on the wall. House says Cuddy got it for him, and he's now trying to convince her to buy him an espresso machine and a massage chair for research purposes. Taub says he managed to track down Danny's father by looking at state-sponsored rehab facility records, which is probably illegal, and finding one Danny Jennings, who put his father down as his next of kin. Chase and Masters are already en route to the address, which leads House to wonder why Taub bothered to come into his office at all. It turns out that Taub has a personal issue to discuss: not being invited to participate in House's wedding. House asks if Taub is saying that he is truly hurt at being "mockingly" left out of the party of a fake wedding. Taub is: "is it because I haven't been here as long as them? Or is it that you really don't like me or are you just screwing -- " I'm sure it's the last one and don't understand why Taub doesn't seem to realize that, either.
He's cut off by the arrival of Dominica, who surfaces from underneath House's desk. Flustered, Taub says he'll come back later, when Dominica is "finished." House says she is, then acts like it only just occurred to him that Taub thought Dominica was giving him some workhead under there. He assures Taub that she was just "installing the cable." Taub leaves. Dominica, ever kind, says she feels sorry for "the little one," and asks if there's anything they can do to make him feel better. Maybe she could install his cable, too?
Masters and Chase approach a nice house with a nice car parked in a red zone in front. I guess whoever owns that Range Rover doesn't care about parking tickets. A man answers the door, and a stern Chase and Masters say they need to talk to him about Danny. The man is confused and rather meek for a guy who supposedly abused his son so badly. Chase asks if Danny's father or mother have any genetic diseases in their family history, and the dad asks what difference it makes. Martha says it makes a big difference to people who care about Danny, unlike his father. "We're trying to make your son better," she says. Dad says that's going to be difficult, since Danny died of a drug overdose three months ago.
House is sent to Danny's (I'm just going to keep calling him that even though it's not his real name. Whatever) room to find out the truth his Cottages were not able to. He feels for Danny's pulse without so much as introducing himself to the guy, then says he definitely feels a pulse, so Danny can't be Danny Jennings, who is dead and therefore has no pulse. Danny refuses to tell House his real name or his father's, claiming this is because his father got sober and is looking for Danny, presumably to make amends. Danny is not interested in that. In fact, he says he knows that if he ever sees his father again, he'll kill him. And he seems pretty darn certain and scared of that fact, too. And then he has trouble picking up his water glass.
House emerges from Danny's room. Martha anxiously waits in the hallway, but House says he doesn't have Danny's real name, though he does have a diagnosis. Danny's new symptom of cerebellar ataxia means he has Parkinson's after all. Martha says that kind of sucks, that after everything Danny has been through, he now has an incurable degenerative disease. House doesn't care, of course, and tells Martha to start treating Danny and send his blood off to be DNA tested to confirm the diagnosis.
Wilson marches into Cuddy's office and says she has to do something about House, whose monster truck is sitting in six handicapped parking spaces. Cuddy says Wilson is exaggerating; it's only in four spots and House already promised her he'd get rid of the monster truck after the wedding. I guess he needs it for the wedding to escort him and his bride to the reception? Incidentally, House is having the wedding ceremony in the hospital chapel, which Wilson also strongly objects to, saying House has basically taken the chapel over. Cuddy doesn't care, saying House is the only person using that chapel except for the janitor when he has to sleep off a bender. And Cuddy knows the janitor does this but keeps him employed why, exactly? Also, are we talking about the Weird Night Janitor Who Wears His Pants Backwards? Because I miss that guy. And finally, I'm sure plenty of people visiting sick loved ones use the chapel and do not appreciate what abuse House is surely hurling at them in there, not like Cuddy gives a shit about her patients' families.
Wilson tells Cuddy not to appease House like this, but Cuddy assures him that she knows what House is trying to do to her and she's handling it fine. She just doesn't understand why Wilson cares. Neither do I. I guess he's bored? All cancer has been cured so he has nothing else to do today? Wilson claims it's because Cuddy is the first boss House had who knew how to deal with him. Before her, House either got fired or sued or both. I think Cuddy's just the first boss who won't fire House for some reason. I think she should, too. That would teach him! "He needs someone to say no," Wilson tells the woman who basically always tells House yes. "He needs someone he'll listen to when they [sic] say no," Wilson tells the woman who House never listen
