The phone rings again. This time, Jason lets House answer it. It's Cuddy, calling from the reception desk and surrounded by PPTH security guards. I hope it's because she called them all together to fire them as a group. Jason puts the phone on speaker as House says he needs some Propofol to prove his diagnosis. Jason will get his answer, and everyone will get to go home. Except for Jason, who will go to jail. Only if PPTH security catches him! And they won't. House tells Cuddy to have one of the guards actually be of some use and bring the drug in, but Jason says no guards, hilariously thinking they represent some sort of threat to him. Mr. Yellowteeth quickly volunteers to go out and get it, but no one is falling for that. Jason sees a picture of Cuddy on her bookcase (apparently, Cuddy decorates her office with pictures of herself ... someone's self-absorbed!) so he knows what she looks like, and says he wants her to bring the drug. House doesn't seem at all concerned for Cuddy's well-being, and just says that Jason should insist that Cuddy come shirtless to prove she doesn't have any concealed weapons.
So they wait for Cuddy to arrive. Jason has decided to hold the only other PPTH employee, a Clinic nurse, at gunpoint. She whimpers. Too bad they fired Evil Nurse Brenda for "extreme insubordination" and "threatening patients with scalpels" and "kicking an overly demanding doctors in the balls" two seasons ago -- can you imagine what this episode would have been like if she was taken hostage instead? For one thing, it wouldn't have gone into seven minutes of overtime, as Evil Nurse Brenda would have burned twin holes into Jason's chest with her laser eyebeams as soon as he pulled out that gun. Cuddy arrives with the drug. House goes out to greet her, and she sees the nurse being held at gunpoint behind him. "Oh god, House!" she says, very worried for the safety of her employees, patients, and office. Not worried enough to stop armed men from entering her hospital in the first place, but still. She says something about waiting for the SWAT team to get here, but House shushes her and returns to the office, giving Cuddy one last look before closing the door.
Inside, he prepares the drug. He's about to inject the syringe into Jason's arm when Jason insists that he gives it to someone else first to make sure they aren't trying to shoot him up with poison or knock-out drugs instead of treatment. Clearly, Jason watched the same episode of Night Court that I did, when they were taken hostage for the 1,646th time and the hostage taker asked for some hamburgers and made Dan eat one first to make sure they weren't laced with anything. They were, and there were many laughs to be had as Dan got all dopey under the influence. House says he can't give the drug to the hostages, since they're all sick Clinic patients with poor immune systems. Jason points out Migraine Man, saying he's not sick or on any medicine that could interact with the Propofol, thanks to Hadley's refusal to treat the guy. "Aw, come on, man," Migraine Man says; "don't take it out on us. You got a problem with doctors? Take it out on doctors. Give it to her." He points at Hadley. Ha! I'll bet Hadley thinks twice now before being a bitch to her Clinic patients and lording her power over them. Migraine Man is the Hero of the Day!
