Cut to Hadley and Foreman in a strip club equally admiring a dancing woman. Apparently, they're allowed to leave work to check out possible strippers for Chase's party. It's also possible that a strip club is in one of PPTH's silly rooms. They wonder why House would care so much about Chase's party briefly before Hadley sticks some of Foreman's money in the stripper's ridiculously chaste underwear, like, use your own money, Hadley. Foreman wonders if House is doing this to ruin Chase and Cameron's marriage because he can't stand to see other people happy, but Hadley points out that if Chase is going to cheat on Cameron with a stripper at his bachelor party, then he shouldn't be getting married in the first place. Fair point. With that, one stripper slides down the pole while holding onto it with just her thigh. Foreman and Hadley are suitably impressed. So much so that they don't seem at all disappointed that no strippers are actually getting naked and all of them are wearing granny panties because this show is on during the family hour.
Taub explains NF2 cancer to Seth while his mother signs it out for him. The bad news is, it's cancer. The good news is that taking the tumor out means that Seth will be able to hear again. Seth frowns and signs something to his mother that causes his girlfriend to stare at him in disbelief. Mom explains that Seth wants to treat the cancer without losing his deafness. Seth and his girlfriend finally get subtitles as the girlfriend signs "it'll be okay" and Seth signs that he'll have to change schools and won't be able to see her anymore. The deaf school would really kick a kid out just because he got undeaf? That seems kind of unfair. The girlfriend points out that if Seth dies from cancer, he won't be seeing anyone at all. Seth isn't pleased, making him more upset about the fact that he might not be deaf than his mother is about her son possibly having cancer. What a weird family.
