Wilson finds Cuddy crying in her office. Wilson instantly knows that it's House-related, and asks her what happened. She says that she's seen House be mean to people before, but that it was always to achieve something. This time, he was mean to her just to be mean. Wilson wonders what House could have possibly said to Cuddy to make her this upset. She says that House actually has the ability to be tactful and hold himself back from really hurting people. This time, he didn't hold back and said the one thing he knew would do this to her. She tells Wilson how she'd been trying to get pregnant, and that House called her a failure as a mother. And House knows that Cuddy knows he's right. She failed to conceive (I'm sorry she's upset about this, really, because I don't want to see my Cuddy upset. But I'm also really happy we won't have to deal with the Cuddy-is-a-new-mom story arc, especially after suffering through this story arc. No more story arcs, show), and she failed to be a mother to Alice. Instead of being natural and caring, Cuddy felt awkward and terrified and even told Alice that her parents might get back together just to make the kid feel better. Wilson's like, "Uh...yeah...maybe that was kind of ill-advised." Cuddy wonders if she just doesn't have a natural maternal instinct. Wilson says that House certainly did poke the right spot. DUH, Wilson. Now what are you going to do about it?
