Even though Chase and Foreman insist that their patient lives in a dump, it's still a pretty big apartment. Dingy and dirty, but big. Foreman is well pleased to find a crack pipe in a drawer, especially because, as Chase guesses, it means he'll have an excuse to skip dinner with the parents to test it for toxins. Chase volunteers to do the tests for Foreman so Foreman can be stuck with his parents. Considering that Chase usually avoids doing work, this is a pretty huge gesture on his part. Oddly, Foreman doesn't seem to appreciate it.
House finally corners Cuddy and finds out that she doesn't even know anything about the artist whose exhibit she's going to see. Big mistake, Cuddy. This is how people end up paying to see a painting of the Virgin Mary covered in elephant poop. House demands to know why Cuddy's choosing an art gallery with Wilson over a play with House. Cuddy sees right through this and says that House is just being a child who only wants a toy after he sees another kid take it out of the sandbox. Cuddy's impression of a greedy child is very good here. Also, she's totally right. House won't be thrown off, however, and he asks why Cuddy turned him down. Cuddy says that she wants a "friend" and Wilson is a "safe choice." House is pleased to learn that he isn't safe. Cuddy is exasperated, but in a way that suggests that she's loving this. She walks away. House calls after her that Wilson is not a safe choice. Oh, please. I know a lot of people think differently, but to me, there is nothing sexy about Wilson. He's very safe.
Foreman has no choice but to show up at his parents' hotel room. Big Daddy F opens the door and a woman's voice calls out for Foreman. A very healthy-looking woman smiles and rushes up to hug and greet him. Is this the mother we've been hearing so much about? Because she has great teeth for someone with some kind of senility. And she seems pretty much together right now, asking Foreman if he's been praying like his father wants him to and looking for a high school graduation picture of Foreman so they can look at how far he's come -- a play on a young Foreman's habit of looking at the last chapters of his school math texts because he wanted to look forward to everything he'd know by the end of the year. Yeah, and because the answers are always in the back of the book. Foreman and Foreman Senior seem uneasy about this even though it seems perfectly fine to me.
