House is studying what appears to be the sunrise on the roof of ridiculous sky backdrops when Stacy finds him. He smiles when he sees her. Aw. She's holding a prescription for a heart condition, which is House's idea of a romantic present. Stacy calls it "cheesy," because she sucks. They hug, and House ruins the moment by asking her if she told Mark about them. Guess what? She didn't. And she doesn't know how to do it without hurting him. That's because it's impossible, Stacy. And where was all this concern for Mark's feelings BEFORE you threw yourself at House? She has a great solution to the whole mess: "if I don't tell [Mark], it'll never hurt." Now it's House's turn to do a StuporDad as he realizes exactly what Stacy is saying to him. I guess it's wrong to hurt Mark, but totally awesome to hurt House, right, Stacy? As long as you get everything you want, it doesn't matter how anyone else feels. She says that she still loves Mark, and the situation that she put herself in is not as simple as House would like it to be. House takes a breath and tells her that she can either be with him or with Mark, but not both. "It's not easy, but it is simple," he says. Sela Ward tries to make some sort of facial expression, but she can't, so she has to settle for expressive swallowing and teary eyes. If not for that, though, you'd swear she was bored.
