The Cottages talk about their new patient and her mysterious case of pancreatitis. Pancreatitis, by the way, is bad news. I once spun a blood sample from a guy with severe pancreatitis, and instead of the serum being yellow and clear, it came out all pink and milky. I thought I must have done something wrong, but the technician told me that's what pancreatitis blood looks like. It's also what your blood looks like immediately after you eat a cheeseburger and fries. I was so horrified, I didn't eat a cheeseburger and fries for, like, a week! Anyway, the Cottages are checking out Patient Alice's CT when House barges in, going right for a lupus textbook, which he has hollowed out to hide a bottle of pills inside. "It's never lupus," he explains. Well, he's got a point. I shudder to think what he could have hidden in the vasculitis textbook. House checks out the CT for a second and says that they're looking at a patient with gallstones that caused pancreatitis. Foreman dismisses this, saying that six-year-olds don't get gallstones, but Chase sticks up for House, saying that he correctly guessed the pancreatitis, so there might be something to his theory. Foreman accuses Chase of being a kiss-ass. House tells them to check out Alice's gallbladder, where he's sure they'll find more gallstones.
