Cuddy is livid. The Parks are in her office, along with that lawyer. House says that Harvey isn't exactly dead yet, but that he will be soon enough, so it won't be a wasted trip. Ma Park threatens to call a lawyer, which House is fine with as long as they sign the surgery consent form. Ma Park responds by whipping out a cell phone and calling her lawyer. Cuddy softens her tone and says that they must care about their own son enough to sign something that will prevent his death. Pa Park says that everyone found out about Harvey's "perversion," and they were humiliated. I really, really want to know what happened that made all of the Parkrents' friends, neighbors, and co-workers find out about Harvey's proclivities, but it isn't explained. House figures that the Parkrents don't get off on embarrassment the way their son does, which does little to make anyone feel better. The lawyer gives up and outright asks the Parkrents how much money it will take for them to forget about this and go away. House interrupts the negotiations to say that he's pretty sure letting your own son die looks a lot worse to outsiders than his love of S&M. And House will make damn sure every Asian knows about it because he'll put a sign broadcasting the fact in "every nail salon and dumpling shop" in the state. Cuddy rolls her eyes, wondering how something that started so well had to end with the race thing. Ma Park hangs up the phone and signs the consent. House says that the surgery will be tomorrow morning, and apologizes for the "dumplings" cheap shot. Yes, well, the nail salon comment wasn't your most shining moment either, House.
Wilson wants to talk to Cameron, although he has a little bit of trouble getting the words out. He always stammers when he's nervous. "I just want to make sure no one gets hurt," he says. "I will be fine," Cameron assures him. "Oh -- it's not...it's not you I'm worried about," Wilson says. "It's me. HANDS OFF, BITCH!" Okay, no. He was talking about House. Wilson says that it's been a while since House last "opened up" to someone, and that if he gets hurt again, there may not be a next time. Dun dun dunnnn! "You're worried I'm gonna break his heart?" Cameron asks, not sure what it means to be the non-victim in a situation.
Night falls on the House of House, and Wilson is there to give House advice on how to put on a tie. House says that this date is a mistake (YES), and that he doesn't know how have casual conversation. Wilson advises him to be a gentleman, compliment Cameron's shoes and earrings, and ask her what her dreams, hopes, and aspirations ("the DHA") are. That kind of date talk would probably make me think I had accidentally asked out a gay guy. Again. But Wilson claims that it works every time for the "panty-peeler," who has condoms if House needs them. They're special condoms from a drug rep, and they have antibiotics built into them, which, if you think you're best off going with the condoms with antibiotics in them for a certain sexual partner, you're probably best off not having sex with that person at all. House goes to the fridge, and Wilson asks House to get him a beer while he's at it. House says he wasn't going for alcohol, and pulls out a white rose corsage. "This is pretty lame, right?" he says. "I think she likes lame," Wilson says. I think this also tells us that the last time House went on a date, it was to the prom.
