Aw, crap, Stacy's here to talk to House like she hates him and wishes he would die and then we're all supposed to think that she still loves him. Can't someone just throw Sela Ward in a microwave and give her three minutes on the "defrost" setting? She finds House hiding out in a Clinic exam room, watching GH. There's a commercial break right now (buy PHILIPS BRAND MRIs for the very best in deadly medical equipment!), so Stacy has a chance to ask how Cuddy's doing. House says that she's been very un-Cuddy-like lately, so he's been having a blast. "You know her," Stacy says. Why did they put Sela Ward on this show and make that big media push about it if her only role was going to be telling various cast members that they know other cast members? That's like the fifth time she's said that in this episode alone! Stacy adds that Cuddy has "trouble" with situations where she feels "personally responsible," which I think is referring to Cuddy's guilt about House's leg as the reason she lets him get away with stuff like breaking into her house and feeling her panties. House protests that Cuddy's real problem is narcissism: if you think everything is your fault, then you must also believe that you're pretty powerful. Stacy implies that House has a touch of narcissism himself, and House says that he doesn't believe he can fix everything, and that the knowledge that he can't doesn't keep him up at night. "No, you lie awake tormented by how --" Stacy gets out before House interrupts to remind her that they're supposed to be talking about Cuddy, not him. House's personal torment is left up to you to figure out. "Lisa cares," Stacy says, because she gets to use first names now. She says that's what drives House nuts about Cuddy -- that she thinks of patients as humans who have feelings. Because if you're a woman on this show, you are automatically all about emotions. Great. Stacy knows that her order not to talk to Alfredo is making Cuddy feel even worse, and House says that now he's got two overly guilty women on his hands. Stacy says that House "owes" Cuddy a break, and tells him to take it easy on her. House says that the commercial is over, and Stacy is very surprised about that because she apparently thought GH had more ad time. Oh no wait, I'm sorry -- I have again confused Sela Ward's facelift consequences of surprisebrows with actual emotion. Seriously, Sela -- it's okay to let your face sag a little bit. That way, your eyebrows don't come to little points at the top like you're some kind of cartoon villain. A surprised cartoon villain.
