But no. Instead, Hadley suggests treating the racing heart with drugs. She volunteers to get them, but Jason doesn't want anyone to leave the room. House tells him to just shoot someone else if Hadley doesn't come back. The hostages all glare at House, who is now the third least popular person in the room. Jason picks the Kid to shoot. He gives Hadley thirty seconds to get the drug and come back. Hadley tries to figure out if she can squeeze a trip to the bar in that amount of time, and runs off. Why can't they just have Cuddy bring the drug in like before? Why must Hadley do everything?
Hadley runs up to a nearby medicine cabinet and fetches the drug. Some SWAT officers slide into frame in the background and tell her to come with them.
Inside the office, House bets that Hadley is going to take off for good. Nurse NotCarla thinks she'll come back, because Nurse NotCarla knows that Hadley must have more camera time than all other Cottages, Cuddy, and Wilson combined. Where is Wilson, by the way? Shouldn't he be, like, concerned? House says Hadley should leave, even if it means the death of another hostage, because her life is more important to her than anyone else's. Um ... has House been paying attention to Hadley lately? "If you don't think your life is worth more than someone else's, then sign your donor card and kill yourself," House says. Just make sure you do it in a way that will lead to brain death and not affect your internal organs. That means no drug overdoses, ladies!
