Actually, though, House figures out that Robert is around dung all the time because he's a farm equipment salesman. He got an eperythrozoon infection from pig feces on said farms. Symptoms of this infection include cold agglutinins and a type of amnesia that only exists in Plotdeviceland. Case closed. 13 says they'll start Robert on the appropriate antibiotics right away, but Foreman tells her to hold up. Kumar points out that Robert has a fever of 107. "It can wait fifteen minutes," Foreman says. Uh...no, it can't.
And so, they risk giving Robert brain damage in order to figure out who is truly in charge: Cuddy or House. They stand in front of Robert and introduce themselves. Outside, Wilson asks Foreman what he'll do if House wins. Foreman says he'll take the job in Boston. Wilson says there is no job in Boston. So...Foreman was just going to quit PPTH, move to Boston, and then find out there was no job for him? And then he'd just stay there instead of moving back to PPTH where the only job he can get was still waiting for him? What's the point in that? Maybe House was hoping Foreman would pick up a pig shit infection on the way there or something. Cuddy and House present their cases to Robert until he speaks: "you have great apples." Cuddy weakly says Robert could have been either one of them, as she loves her breasts just as much as the degree to which she shows them off would suggest. But House begins the celebration, dancing around in victory and shooting Foreman with his cane. I can't believe Foreman thought Cuddy even had a chance there.
It's firing time. All of the Numbers sucked it today, House says, as we see that quite the audience has gathered behind them to see who won the bet. That sucks. Not only do you get fired, but you also get fired in front of the entire PPTH staff? Not today, it turns out, as House decides to fire no one. 13 and Cole high-five while the betting crowd murmurs disgustedly except for Chase, who just won all of their money. He shoots House a knowing look as the White Stripes start to play.
House and Foreman leave for the day. Foreman says House was nice not to fire anyone. At this point, I guess Foreman is resigned to the fact that he is like House and is just trying to find an ounce of good in the guy to feel better about it. That, and he figured out that House was in cahoots with Chase this whole time. By not firing anyone, Chase kept all the money, except for the half he has to split with House. Well, now they'll never get into the Baseball Hall of Fame. House asks Foreman if he really does want to stay at PPTH. Foreman says he does. House says all the Numbers got some insight on themselves from Robert, but Foreman was the only one who actually did anything about it. "People don't learn. They don't change. But you did," House says. "You're a freak." If only he were a more interesting one.
