And so, she throws a labcoat and a tie on House to make him look somewhat presentable and sends him to her mother's room. He puts on a fake smile and says all tests have come back normal and he thinks Murphy just needs some pills and her atrial fibrillation will go away. That's not good enough for Murphy, who asks if the heart issue is connected to her other symptoms. Cuddy asks what those are, and her mother rolls her eyes and says Cuddy has obviously been a Dean of Medicine for so long that she forgot how to be a real doctor and read Murphy's medical file. You know, the more we see of Cuddy's mother, the more it makes sense that she's dating House, who says the same horrible things to her. I guess it's what she's used to. House is forced to look through the last fifteen years of Murphy's medical history, none of which seems particularly interesting to him. In fact, he doesn't see a legitimate medical complaint anywhere in there except for a hip replacement that I'm sure won't come in handy later or anything. He's about to diagnose her as a complaining bitch when Cuddy interrupts to say they'll test Murphy's thyroid and House's team will inspect her house for possible environmental toxins. Murphy is satisfied with this, and feeling well enough to criticize the fact that House's labcoat is too small for him. And that surprises her? No one on this show wears clothes that fit properly.
