Foreman and House are hanging out in Jack's room while Roy gets ready to sign a bunch of papers over his lawyers' protests. They demand that Cuddy do something to stop this. What can she do? Roy isn't a patient at PPTH. And even if he was, what could she do? Cuddy has proven over and over again that she can't make anyone do anything. Apparently, Roy has decided to sign papers to borrow huge amounts of money for some deal that will surely ruin him. He's hoping that if he sucks at business, his family life will improve because of karma or whatever. How did someone that silly become so rich? Surely he would have given all of his money to a deposed Nigerian princess by now. Roy says he doesn't want to have all of his "good fortune" in just one area of his life. So by losing all of his money he'll, what? Shift all of that good fortune to his family life instead? Then he'll have the same balance problem! One lawyer tells Roy to at least give the money to a charity if he's going to do this. For real. That would definitely help his karma. Another lawyer tries to have Roy declared insane, but House won't do it, saying he's simply being irrational. The lawyer says that Roy isn't just ruining his own life -- he'll put his company out of business and ruin the lives of all of his employees who will be laid off. Oh, and they have kids, too. Kids who might be sick or who might get sick and then they won't be able to afford doctors and hospitals for them. That would be bad for Roy's karma. But he doesn't seem to care. Because he's totally unrealistic. No one does this. Cuddy urges Roy not to make a big decision at a time like this. But Roy can't wait on it because then his son will be dead. Also, we all know Cuddy is only telling Roy not to ruin himself because she wants to make sure he can pay for PPTH's bills. Roy says he won't "let" his son die. "People don't get what they deserve, they just get what they get," House speaks up. That does nothing to change Roy's mind. He signs the papers. Are we supposed to applaud this decision? Because he just made hundreds or even thousands of fictional employees unemployed and it's going to take them a really long time to get a job. The lawyers leave with the papers and Jack flatlines. It sure would suck if he would up penniless and son-less. Fortunately for him, a patient died just last week so the odds are very much in Jack's favor to live.
Oh, hi, Wilson! I forgot you existed. Oh, and there's Hadley, walking into his office. I did not forget she existed because it's impossible to. She accuses Wilson of being the person who hacked into her email account. Apparently, Cuddy went and told PPTH's IT department to waste their time tracking IP addresses of people who logged into Hadley's email account, and there were just two. "Mine and yours," Hadley says. Um, and also the IP address of that coffee shop, right? Whatever. I really don't understand why Cuddy cared enough about this to have the freaking IT department solve the Case of the Canceled Reservation. For someone who doesn't even work at PPTH anymore! Wilson tries to blame House for it, since House and Wilson's IP addresses are the same right now, but Hadley says she already talked to House about it and was convinced of his innocence. She's not convinced of Wilson's. He admits that he did it because Hadley is "good for" both Foreman and House. What, how? Foreman has sucked since he started dating Hadley and House doesn't need Hadley. House was fine for three seasons without her. But Wilson thinks he does because "he needs someone who doesn't need him. You're the only one he's never really been able to suck into his crazy House vortex. Keeps him grounded. His ego in check." HUH? What about Taub? Why is no one begging Taub to come back?!? And how has Hadley being on the team kept House grounded or his ego in check? She was on the team when he went insane. This is stupid. Hadley smirks a good-bye to Wilson, who tries one more time to get her to stay, saying she shouldn't throw a great job away because of a break-up. Hadley leaves, hopefully for good. Well, I can dream, can't I?
