House reports to Jeff's room and says they know what he has and that it's treatable with one pill a day for an entire month. A ten-year-old parasite is curable with one pill a day for a month? Hmmm. Kumar gets to tell Jeff that he has Chagas and that it was asymptomatic for ten years. Except, House says, for a slight swelling of Jeff's brain that would be enough to alter his personality. Deb refuses to believe that her husband's niceness was caused by a parasite. She thinks his one angry outburst was caused by the drugs, to which House asks her if she thinks drugs are more powerful than a parasite. Then he realizes that he's also giving Jeff drugs that are more powerful than a parasite and gets lost and gives up. "I'm not worried," Deb says. "Neither am I," Kumar says even though no one asked him. House adds that he's not worried, but that's because he doesn't care. Neither do I!
House reports to Cuddy's office to give her the performance reviews. She's impressed with the first one. Then she realizes that House just wrote one review and copied it for all the fellows and is less thrilled, but hopefully not surprised. She says it's better than what she was expecting, at least. House says he went above and beyond the call of duty by providing Cuddy with her own review, an idea he got from Foreman: "your treatment of patients is non-existent because you're not a doctor, you're an administrator. Management of employees is -- well, let's face it. They're outside carrying signs." Cuddy points out that the strike has been over for two shifts now, to which House raises his eyebrows and wonders why he didn't notice. "What exactly do they do around here, anyway?" he asks the AMPTP. He reads the rest of the review for us, and it's basically that Cuddy wants and needs someone to fuck her. "What you've accomplished makes you proud, but you're still miserable," he concludes. Little does he know that in this one instance, Cuddy wields a little bit of power over him, and now she definitely wants to use it. She leans forward and says CTB told on House for violating the custody agreement. Doesn't CTB have a job? She seems to go around telling on people all day. House says CTB broke the rules by "breaching confidentiality." "You're both losing fingers," Cuddy smirks.
