House finds Cameron in the lab, where she's aggressively trying to prove that she didn't do anything wrong. But she still has no idea what could have caused the necrosis other than a warfarin overdose. House tells her to let him know when and if she gets a clue, and Cameron angrily says that she is the only person who supported House when he screwed up. He asks her why she would do that, and Cameron answers that she's not "insanely insecure," and I think she included one too many "in"s there, possibly even two. She calls House a "misanthropic son of a bitch" incapable of trusting anyone, which is sure to help her keep that job. House asks her whom she would fire, and Cameron says that she would just cut everyone's pay so that they could all stay employed. House accuses her of finding a solution that makes everyone happy (except for the people who might not want/be able to afford a pay cut), when the real world doesn't work that way. Cameron, in turn, accuses House of stalling and refusing to face the issue.
House enters the Clinic, where Tumor Lady's husband is waiting for him. House denies that he is House in order to avoid human interaction, and enters Cuddy's office.
Vogler and Cuddy are having a meeting, because that's all they ever do when Vogler isn't running around looking at people's confidential medical records and probably assisting on complicated surgeries. House says that he has come to a decision: he and his three team members will each take a 17\% pay cut, thereby allowing them all to continue working there for the same amount of money as if one of them had been fired. House says it's "win-win." Cuddy loves it. Vogler does not. He says that this isn't about the money, but about knowing that House will do whatever Vogler asks House to do, because the domination of one freaking doctor on an entire hospital staff is just that damn important. Cuddy looks sick, perhaps realizing for the first time that the new chairman of the board has some weird control-freak issues that she'll be stuck dealing with for the rest of whoever's tenure lasts longer. House leaves.
Tumor Hubby was not convinced by House's denials, and demands to know what is going on with his wife. House says that physician-patient confidentiality prevents him from telling the husband anything, unless, of course, the husband has one hundred million dollars. Husband says that he knows about the tumor, and that he wants his wife to have the surgery, even if it means she'll be skinnier and have a scar. He wants House to talk to his wife again and convince her to have the surgery. He shows House pictures of their six kids, which doesn't affect House in the slightest until he gets a good look at the pictures. He tells the husband to send the wife back in, and takes the pictures with him into the elevator.
