Wilson stops by House's office, and this is the first scene we're seeing where Lee isn't in the room. Why did they switch like that? I was hoping the entire episode would be through Lee's eyes. Seems odd that only the first half was. Wilson says that he called his ex-wife and knows that House didn't visit her. She also now knows that House had a reason to say he was, so if she's anything like everyone else on this show, she'll have figured everything out and be asking for increased alimony payments any day now. House says Wilson hates it when he meddles in his life, the implication being that Wilson should therefore not meddle in House's life. I think it's all the more reason why he should. For revenge. Wilson thinks House is trying to hide something. House says he was, and it has nothing to do with any of Wilson's business -- he was visiting Foreman's brother in jail. He doesn't tell us why.
Taub has decided to give Lee an extra reason to get that cursor moving -- he's going to bore him to death. He starts talking about himself and his job situation. He says he's not sick of working for House. He's sick of being terrified at work every day. If he thinks he has it bad, he should have seen this woman I saw on Maury a while back. She had a phobia of mustard and worked in a Burger King. Her life was torture, but Maury made it better by confronting her with plates with mustard piled high and a bunch of TV screens showing mustard being squirted all over the place. Actually, that didn't make her life better at all. She ran screaming from the stage after attempting to fend the mustard off with a chair and threatening to kick its ass. But it was really funny for me. Anyway, just as Taub has given up on Lee, he hears a beeping sound. He looks at the screen, and sure enough, Lee can make the cursor move. Computers that can read minds are cool. And terrifying. But not as terrifying as mustard.
Taub brings Molly in to show her that Foreman's crappy job with the brain biopsy hasn't killed her husband after all. She's as relieved as she can be knowing that her husband still can't move any part of his body. We go back to Lee's POV again, and he says he's scared and loves Molly.
Lee can now move the cursor both up and down, and they've got it so that he moves up for yes and down for no. Now House can ask him about symptoms and rule out some diagnoses. No, Lee hasn't had any bloody diarrhea. Or joint pain. Or been anywhere in or out of the country. Molly disagrees, saying that Lee went to St. Louis. This time, Lee says yes. House diagnoses Lee with "Missouri Malaria" and says they can start treatment right away. Lee totally falls for it and says no. He only told Molly he went to St. Louis. This is why we should have the wife in the room when we're asking questions. Because even people who can't move and can only communicate through a mind-reading game of Pong can still lie. Molly asks her husband if he went to St. Louis. In his POV, he says he should have told her the truth to begin with. The cursor says no.
