Coming off the elevator (drink!) Chase tells House that since Joey is totally fine now, he can be released. House would rather keep Joey around until they figure out what put him into the coma in the first place. That, and he found a tiny horse's head next to his Gameboy DS earlier. Foreman agrees with Chase that Joey should be released. House turns to Cameron, calling her "my girl," because he has no problem playing with people's exposed emotional vulnerabilities when it will get him what he wants. Or when he's bored. Or both. But Cameron managed to grow little bit of a backbone this past week, and she agrees with Foreman and Chase. House dismisses her "medical opinion" by implying that she's only disagreeing with him because he shot her down. I felt sorry for Cameron until I remembered that if I were her, I would have left this job a long time ago. I certainly wouldn't have confessed my feelings to a guy who has made a hobby out of rubbing salt in other people's emotional wounds. House doesn't really care that all the Cottages are against him, since this isn't a democracy and he gets to do whatever he wants. And he wants Joey to stay.
House enters the Clinic exam room to find a young guy holding a fussing baby. House assumes that the baby belongs to the kid, who protests that this is his brother, whose care he has been entrusted with while the parents vacation in Barbados. Older bro claims he was studying when the baby started to cry, and now he's having trouble breathing and has been wheezing. House shoves a pair of forceps up the baby's left nostril and pulls out a tiny policeman figurine covered in nasty baby nose matter.
A page interrupts House from the rest of his Clinic work, and he limps over to Joey's room, which seems to be lacking its patient. Foreman explains that Vogler told the Feds that Joey was fine, and that they came and took him away. House wants to know who talked to Vogler. The Cottages shrug. One of them is LYING!
Back in their eternal meeting, Vogler is still trying to get House fired, saying that House loses money and is uncontrollable. Cuddy says that she is the only person capable of controlling House, which might be true in Happy Unicorn Fantasy Land, but I have yet to see much proof of this. For every hour of clinic duty she forces him to do, she seems to spend three alternately outsmarting and being outsmarted by him. House angrily bursts into the room. Vogler greets him with a little rap ditty complete with the air record-scratch, and he still isn't as cool as House no matter how hard he tries. Also, he hikes the back of his pants up way too high. Loosen up the 'penders, Vogler.
