Meanwhile, the totally innocent House who did nothing wrong is TRYING TO PICK THE LOCK ON CUDDY'S DESK DRAWER to steal some Vicodin. Foreman walks in and spots House, who says that Cuddy is stuck in the little drawer and he's trying to rescue her. But Foreman knows that dwarfism isn't contagious and doesn't believe House. He says that House was right about Abigail's liver, but House won't give up any more information, since this isn't his case anymore. Then House proposes a deal: he'll give Foreman information about the case if Foreman helps him to break into Cuddy's desk. Foreman agrees to this, much to House's surprise. He thought Foreman would love watching him suffer. While Foreman fashions some lock-picking tools out of paper clips , House says that they're looking at a problem involving Abigail's entire body, not just select organs. They need to get ahead of the disease, which House thinks will strike Abigail's pancreas next. Foreman unlocks the drawer and gives House some advice: "Only an idiot goes to prison for being stubborn." As opposed to all those really smart people who go to prison for armed robbery. House rips the drawer open, but there's no Vicodin inside. Foreman sincerely apologizes to House, who's starting to look desperate.
Chase brings in his findings from the dwarf house and I am very disappointed that we didn't get to see Maddy and Abigail's home, which I imagine looks exactly like the Seven Dwarfs' home in Snow White. What a missed opportunity that was! Chase found olive oil in a medicine cabinet, which can be used to treat ear infections. Cameron says that those are common with CHH dwarves, but Chase says that ear infections could be a symptom as well. He also found laxatives, and Cameron chalks those up to being a CHH dwarf as well. Cameron really doesn't want to create any more work for herself than she has to this week, does she?
