With Cuddy and House out of the office, Shitter is free to interview the Cottages again. Foreman's first up, and he plays it cool, refusing to tell Shitter anything, even after Shitter says he did some research into Foreman's backstory and found out that Foreman has a brother in jail for drugs. Shitter says that if Foreman testifies against House, he'll make sure Foreman's brother is out on parole in a few months. Oh, that's great. Putting one criminal out on the streets to lock another one up. Hooray for justice! All the goodwill I had toward Shitter when he made that point to Cuddy just flew out the window. Shitter says he knows how much Foreman hates hypocrisy (I guess he read last week's script; otherwise I don't know how he could have figured this out through his limited contact with Foreman) and thinks it would be hypocritical of him to let House have all those chances and Foreman to have two chances himself, and only leave his brother with one. Foreman thinks this over to manufacture suspense.
The antibiotics haven't killed Alice, and her parents celebrate by fighting with each other. Mom threatens to sue for sole custody, and Alice's blood pressure and heart rate start to go up. Cuddy is concerned about this, while the parents are too busy having issues with each other to care about anything else. Finally, Cuddy just kicks them out of the room, assuring them that they're equally responsible for causing Alice's anxiety attack.
Chase reports that his bank accounts have finally been frozen. Foreman's surprised; he thought that Chase's accounts were staying open because Chase had cut a deal with Shitter. He's sure Chase will talk now that they have been frozen. Chase points out that he can't really win here. Alice's mom walks in the room and manages to speak to them without trying to start a fight. She asks if Alice is having another procedure done, since she isn't in her room. Chase jumps up and tells Foreman to call Security.
