Sure enough, Cuddy pumps Emma full of steroids and she has a pulmonary edema. While Cuddy struggles to save her life, Wilson strolls in and lectures her that she shouldn't have pumped Emma full of steroids. Meanwhile, I do not see Wilson doing anything to help Emma right now as she dies on the bed. I guess he hates photographers. He tells Cuddy that she turned Emma into an "incubator for a dead baby." I hope Emma can't hear him. Also, I believe the correct term is "fetus," Wilson. Cuddy tells him either to get her a laryngoscope or leave. He chooses to leave. Fortunately, some nurses come in and actually do some work without the high-handed lecturing. I hope that wasn't supposed to be "Cuddy's Cuddy," because Cuddy would never just let a patient die in front of her like Wilson did. At the very least, Cuddy would help the process along by pumping her full of steroids.
And so we head into the typical House-sits-in-his-office-and-thinks montage, except this time it's Cuddy in House's office. She picks up his giant tennis ball and tries to bounce it on the ground. But the giant tennis ball is so ashamed of her crappy doctor skills that it bounces away. Ha ha! House's office is rejecting Cuddy! It won't be long now before the record player sprouts legs and takes off.
The next morning, Cuddy goes to Wilson and says that everyone was right and she was wrong. Emma is dying. Although somehow, she isn't dead yet, even though her lungs are now on their way out, along with her liver and kidneys. Wilson asks Cuddy whether she's spoken to Emma's family. Of course, Emma doesn't have any family, or else we would have seen them fighting like hell to kill the baby-fetus and save Emma, like, fifteen minutes ago. Where's that neurologist friend of hers? What an asshole! Cuddy asks Wilson to advise her as if she were House. He says he can't, because House would be objective about this patient and Cuddy is not. Cuddy somehow takes this to mean that now that Emma's lungs are on a respirator, Cuddy can "do whatever [she wants] to her lungs." Cuddy also tries to come up with her very own House metaphor, saying that she's already played catch in the living room and broken her mom's vase, so she might as well keep playing catch. Okay, Cuddy, but what about the Jews? She rushes off to keep giving Emma the steroids so that the baby-fetus's lungs can develop.
