And the next time we see House's office, he's having the doctor's lounge TV put up on his wall while his crappy old 12-inch TV makes its way back to the doctor's lounge. Oh, there will be a mutiny for this. They're going to take back their TV and put a special anti-House lock on the door and probably an anti-Wilson one too, just in case he gives his key to House. One of these days we're going to get an episode all about the rest of the people who work at PPTH and how they feel about their colleague, who's always running into their ORs and stealing their food and TV. And it will star Evil Nurse Brenda. I can't wait! Cameron says she's finally done with the files and lectures House on the importance of keeping them up-to-date, like that even matters. If House had any intention of keeping his charts current, he'd have done it once in his medical career. Nice wishful thinking, Cameron. House says prefers to think of his unkept charts as an experiment: He lets everything pile up until one of his fellows can't take it anymore and clears everything up for him. He didn't even have Cameron in the running this time, so he's surprised she was the one to do it. I'm surprised that Kumar wasn't doing this from the start to earn extra brownie points. This episode is full of surprises! House says Cameron clearly misses him. Cameron says it's the other way around, which is why House hired Biana to replace her. House tells Cameron to stop avoiding the question, and she admits that she does miss the job and the medical mystery solving. But she does not miss the boss. House seems stung by that comment, which I wouldn't have expected.
And now Taub gets his chance to tell Evan how awesome his life is while they wait for the tracer-filled iodine Evan has drunk to work its way through his system. "You must do okay with women, huh?" Taub asks. That's a weird question to ask your patient, especially knowing that he may have impotence problems and the last time he got an erection it caused a heart attack. Maybe sex should be an off-limits question at this point? "It's not all it's cracked up to be," Evan says. "He feels unfulfilled," Kumar interjects. Um, Kumar? No one asked for your opinion. Shhh. Taub thinks he has a special understanding of Evan's situation as he used to be a plastic surgeon, and people said his work was shallow and meaningless, too. But he also got to see boobies, so that was cool. "Meaning doesn't mean that much," Taub concludes. I guess he didn't do much work on child burn victims during his time as a plastic surgeon. Evan points out that Taub isn't a plastic surgeon anymore and asks if he's happier with what he's doing now. "It's complicated," Taub answers to both questions. So it's okay for you to ask your patient personal questions, but when he turns the tables on you, you get all elusive? Lame, Taub. Meanwhile, Kumar is trying to do real work, so he checks out the monitor and says Evan's thyroid looks normal. The monitor, however, does not. It seems brighter than usual. Kumar realizes that's because the tracer is actually everywhere in Evan's body because he isn't filtering the iodine properly. "His kidneys are failing," Taub reports. You'd think Evan would have noticed that sooner.
