Music montage! Cuddy paces around in slow motion looking concerned. She paces outside of Evan's room, and then she paces outside the lab where the Cottages are allergy testing away. An unconcerned House plays with his cane and ball. The montage comes to an abrupt end when Cuddy informs House that the lab results just came back, and Evan is negative for all floral allergies. House was wrong! Evan's gonna die! Everyone's fired! Shit, this should be the series finale. Even the usually cool House looks alarmed. He follows Cuddy into the hall, and she says she's on her way to put Evan back on antibiotics -- assuming he's still alive.
But when Cuddy gets to Evan's room, she's shocked to see him awake and looking healthier. "The steroids worked. House was right," Foreman says. Cuddy doesn't see how; Evan was negative for floral allergies. Evan doesn't seem to care who was right or wrong as long as he's better. "Thank you," he tells House. "I was wrong. You should've stopped me," House says, glaring at Cuddy. Aw, she just can't win.
She really can't win, since the inspector somehow found out what happened and is not pleased. Cuddy says the results speaks for themselves: Evan is alive and not in a coma. House's treatment worked and a life was saved, even though he had to break protocol to do it. The inspector says that the rules exist for a reason, and everyone has to abide by them. Even, and especially, the people who don't think they do. And with that, he just sits down and starts talking about Chase, saying "I noticed Dr. Chase -- " before they cut the scene off. I wonder what the rest of his sentence was. I'm guessing it's "Actually, I didn't notice Dr. Chase. Is he even on the show anymore? What's up with that?"
CTB rolls over on her new waterbed with cheesy gold sheets. She sloshes around, but she's alone; Wilson is gone. She finds him sleeping on the floor of the living room. He says he can't sleep and he hates the waterbed. CTB says she kind of likes it. "It's awful!" Wilson says. "We're returning it tomorrow." Do waterbed stores take returns? Will any mattress stores even let Wilson and CTB in to buy a third mattress after reports of their rampant mattress buying and returning spree make their way around town? CTB curls up beside Wilson and says she's glad he got the waterbed. Wilson says he is, too, but he's worried they won't take it back. CTB says she'll make sure they do. I have a feeling Wilson's balls will be traded in once again, but he doesn't seem to mind.
