Meanwhile, House is in the parking lot sliding his wheelchair into his crap car, a huge grin on his face. Wheelchairs are fun when you don't actually need them. As House drags himself into the passenger seat of his car, Foreman tells him that they found a granuloma in Stevie's liver in the MRI. House struggles to get his wheelchair into his car. Foreman refuses to assist him. Ha! Although I'm sure if House really used a wheelchair due to a physical challenge, his car would have some accommodations for that. I doubt that J. Whitner is stuck having to fold her electric wheelchair up and drag it into her car that way. Then again, she probably has a line of people willing to help her out since she's so awesome. House tells Foreman to start treating Stevie for Wegener's before doing the biopsy to confirm the diagnosis. He manages to get the wheelchair into his car, and then faces another problem: how to close the passenger-side door. He solves this by backing the car up and allowing momentum to shut the door. With a triumphant grin, House drives away.
Foreman enters Stevie's room the next day to find him dressed in his own clothes, in a room outfitted to look as much like Stevie's bedroom as possible and eating some homemade food. Foreman is not pleased, but Stevie says that his parents made him do it. He also says that he isn't feeling better despite the treatment. Foreman says that it will take time to work. Stevie's parents enter the room with boxes full of stuff, and I think it's sweet how they insist on making Steve's room all homey-like. Foreman does not share my feelings, however, especially when Stevie's mom says that the soup they gave Stevie has willow bark extract in it, which is almost the same as aspirin. Foreman says that they're giving Stevie all the medicine he needs right now, and that his parents are just interfering and risking an adverse reaction. Foreman adds that Stevie's environment needs to be controlled, and that means putting him in hospital clothes, eating hospital food, and getting rid of all the furnishings. Dad says that Stevie is sick because his life is out of balance, and this is their way of restoring it. One of their ways is making sure Leah is nowhere near Stevie. Foreman points out that Leah did a pretty good job taking care of Stevie when his parents were nowhere to be found. The parents scoff at Foreman. Have they ever explained where his parents were all that time? And how they found out where Stevie was? I'm guessing Leah told them, even though they're so mean to her. Dad takes a seat and sticks a picture frame on a table, removing the toothpick from his mouth only to eat a slice of bread. Special balance-restoring bread, I'll bet -- lots of fiber. Foreman gives up and leaves.
