Meanwhile, Jeff's sunny disposition has certainly changed. "YOU BITCH!" he greets his wife as she enters with some lunch. It turns out that she moved his book and that's why he's so angry. This seems perfectly justified to me. You shouldn't move a man's book without asking him first. Honestly, Deb. And now look what she did! Jeff is so angry that he has a heart attack and his monitors beep as Deb springs into action, which is totally against strike rules. She is going to be in big trouble with the NGA unless she went fi-core. And even then, they're going to issue a press release like two months after the strike is over naming her and telling the rest of the NGA is keep her at arm's length. Deb calls out for help, but all the help is outside holding signs. That's why I would have had my husband transferred to St. Sebastian's, where the nurses are given excellent pay and benefits and never go on strike. Fortunately, Taub happens by the room as we go to commercial and Jeff's vitals go to flatline.
Back from break, Jeff appears to be okay, as everyone's in the conference room and Kumar helpfully exposits that Deb saved Jeff's life. "Or she scabbed," House says, ever the union sympathizer. He BELIEVES, people. Not enough to stop working in sympathy to the nurses, but still. House adds Jeff's new symptom to the Whiteboard before handing the marker to Kumar, who is thrilled. Taub, meanwhile, is totally jealous. Ha ha! Kumar guesses the prednisone they gave Jeff for his liver caused "roid rage" which caused hypertension, explaining Jeff's outburst and his heart attack. Since when did regular steroids give you roid rage? My dad takes steroids for his asthma; am I to assume that he will start screaming at me for moving his books? Not like I would move his books. You don't do that to someone. But still, what if? Taub guesses that the penicillin is working and the outburst is Jeff's real personality. But he's also allergic to penicillin, which explains the heart attack. Um, I don't think anyone's real personality is a simmering pot of rage, ready to boil over due to a moved book. House is just pleased to know that syphilis prevents domestic violence, as this will make him even more attractive to the ladies. He makes sure to direct that comment to Biana, just in case she wants some tips. For her part, Biana thinks Jeff has an underlying heart issue, which caused the attack and reduced blood flow to his brain, causing the rage. House says these are all good ideas and tells the team to vote on which one they like best. Of course, they all vote for themselves, leaving Foreman to give the deciding vote. He accuses House of setting him up before going with Biana's diagnosis. House tells them to go for that, drawing weird looks from everyone.
