Driver is looking bad and the Cottages have decided that he's suffering from a pulmonary embolism. Cuddy appears with House in tow, to which Kumar says "You let him back in?" "I asked him back in," Cuddy says, sounding really annoyed. Also, she's not as concerned about House's health as she had claimed. Either send him home and keep him out of Driver's case or let him stay and work on it. You can't do both. Maybe she's mad at him for barfing on her shoes. He tells them to give the patient some T.P.A. for the blood clot he suspects is causing this. Biana reports that they already did, but it's not working. House says it must not be a clot; Taub says that's their only option. Foreman wants to operate on the guy and remove the clot, and they start moving the stretcher. House notices Driver's got some brand new caps on his teeth. No one else understands why that would be important, so they ignore House and continue rolling the guy out. They foolishly leave the room before House does, so he closes the door and locks it shut with his temporary cane. Now he, Driver, and Biana (why Biana? Ugh!) are in and the rest of the team are out. "House!" Cuddy says. "House!" Houses mimics in a whiny voice. He's going to make fun of her and take over the hospital at the same time! He orders Biana to get a syringe while Cuddy tells House she does not appreciate him staging a coup.
Biana moves to unlock the door, but House tells her that he thinks Driver got an air bubble in his gums during recent dental surgery. It moved through his system, causing a myoclonic jerk House saw when he was driving, which then caused the crash. It's been attacking his system ever since, from his spine to his liver to where it is now, in his lungs. "Dr. Hadley, open the door!" Cuddy orders. WHAT? SHE HAS A NAME???!!!!!!!!! Finally! House ignores Cuddy and puts some pillows under Driver's legs so that the air bubble will move into his heart, where Hadley (it feels so weird to finally type that!) can suck it out with the syringe. Cuddy doesn't like this plan at all; if House is wrong, Driver is dead. Cuddy bangs on the door and calls Hadley's name again. "See? She doesn't even know your name," House says. I got so mad here because I thought that meant that the name Cuddy was calling Hadley wasn't her name at all, but then some people pointed out that he might have just meant that Cuddy didn't call Hadley by her more familiar name of "Thirteen." So now I don't know what to do. I'd call her Dr. Who, but I like that show and don't want Biana associated with it. I'll just stick with Hadley, I guess. Anyway, this "Hadley" has to choose between House and Cuddy. She tries to play things down the middle by reminding House that the patient is now suffocating and the consequences if he's wrong could be dire. "SHUT UP AND MAKE A DECISION!" he says. Meanwhile, you know Taub and Kumar are soooo glad they're on the other side of the glass. No difficult decisions for them today! Hadley decides to go with House. She plunges the syringe into his heart just as the rest of the team gets inside the room. And, of course, the patient's stats go back up because House was right. Was there ever any doubt?
