With that, Chase walks in with news about Patrick. He says that they found a bleed behind Patrick's kidney, but have no idea what caused it. One thing they didn't find, Chase says pointedly, was cancer. House studies Chase as he goes on to say that Patrick had a grand mal seizure, which was bizarre, since Patrick's on those anti-seizure drugs. Really? If anti-seizure drugs worked all the time, then people with epilepsy wouldn't have such a hard time getting driver's licenses. Anyway, House turns to Wilson and accuses him of telling Chase about the cancer. "No, I didn't," Wilson sighs. "I only told Cameron." And I believe, according to the trailers, that they deleted the scene where he told her not to tell anyone. Wilson confesses his slip with a shamed look on his face, as well he should have. If Cameron knows, everyone knows. She's probably wailing away to the centrifuge about the unfairness of it all while she waits for the Times to return her call.
House makes his way to the meeting room, where Cameron and Foreman are no doubt chatting about their boss's brain cancer. Cameron is also sitting in front of a computer, fresh from posting a bulletin on craigslist about it. "You guys have cleverly deduced that I have cancer," House begins. Except that they didn't, really. Cameron thought House was trying to score a gig at Harvard. Cuddy was the one who figured it out. "You have no right to know. You have no business knowing," says the guy who routinely breaks into people's houses for information they try to conceal. You had no business knowing that Cuddy wore thongs, House. But you do. Turnabout is fair play. A caring Foreman steps forward and says that they want to run blood tests on House to make sure the cancer diagnosis is correct. That's wise -- since House's cancer was diagnosed by a member of PPTH's crack oncology team, it's pretty likely that he doesn't have cancer. He may have some random testicles floating around his lower abdomen as well. House says that they can run all the tests they want AFTER they finish with their actual patient. Chase says that they can't just pretend House is fine when they know he isn't. "You don't know anything," House replies. But it's not like he's trying to tell them that he doesn't have cancer, is he? He changes the subject back to Patrick, asking how a patient on anti-seizure medicine could have a seizure. While Chase and Cameron make sad faces abut the cancer, Foreman pipes up to say that anti-seizure medicines don't prevent seizures -- they manage them. If Patrick still had a grand mal seizure on his medication, then his seizures must be getting worse. Which means that there's something wrong with Patrick's brain. Of course, the only way House knows to figure out what is wrong is to take Patrick off of his seizure medicine so that they can scan his brain and see which areas of it are affected. Cameron protests that all the seizures Patrick will have while unmedicated could give him brain damage. House rightly points out that there's not a whole lot more damaged Patrick's brain can really get.
