Oh, and now the Cottages have gone and told Cameron and Chase about this, which is such a violation. Not like House has ever been the type to respect patient's rights to privacy, but still! Oh well, I won't complain too much, as I'm glad to see Cameron and Chase have something to do and say, even though they should both know better. Gullible Cameron says the syphilis must explain why House "is who he is." Foreman says it could just be a coincidence. Biana says Wilson said House has always been a jerk. "But he got worse," Taub says. "After his leg!" Cameron says. As for Chase, he just wants to know if Cameron's distress over all of this is because she slept with House. Oh, someone's insecure! His awkward question is greeted with an awkward pause as Cameron chooses not to respond. Kumar says he hopes syphilis-free House will be nicer. "Or less of a doctor!" Cameron frets. Chase just wants an answer to his question. "It's none of their business," Cameron tells him. Yes, well, House's syphilis is none of your business, too, and look. "It's none of your business," she adds, looking at Chase. Chase says it very well is his business, because he has sex with Cameron and now she could have a strain of syphilis that makes you really good at diagnosing stuff! Cameron ignores him and says she thinks House will change for the worse now because humans are complicated, and if you change one thing you could change everything. What if Mozart wasn't such a loser and had friends and played sports? Then he may never have played music. Okay, I think Chase doesn't have to worry about a thing. It's quite clear Cameron doesn't have any STD that makes her smarter with that line of thinking. And yet, he's still pissed off. "You did, didn't you?" he frowns.
As for House, he's visiting with Wilson. He has something important to tell Wilson, but CTB is already in the office, and she is pissed off. House's startled turn when she starts talking is really good, by the way. No matter how much I complain about the show, please know that Hugh Laurie is always awesome. CTB is mad at House for making it so she couldn't have sex with Wilson last night. House doesn't like CTB being in control of when and how he can see Wilson, and she doesn't like House being in control of when and how she can have sex with him. Meanwhile, Wilson should be the one who's angry at both of them, but he doesn't seem to mind being thought of as having no free will of his own. In fact, he's really enjoying being the center of attention, I think. Chicks love it when guys fight over them. CTB says House is afraid that she'll make Wilson happy or miserable, or maybe he just likes fucking with people. Either way, he'll only get worse unless CTB dumps Wilson or kills House. House has the brains to look slightly afraid of this. As CTB has no intention of losing Wilson or murdering anyone (yet), she has a compromise: adding "penalty clauses" into their agreement. House has an idea of what that penalty can entail: finger removal. You know what? That sounds great. Make them do that, and, of course, break the rules and then Hugh Laurie has to finish out the series with some fingers CGI'd out. Go for it. But CTB doesn't like his idea, so he tells her they can figure something else out -- on her time. Apparently, right now is his time, so he opens the door for CTB to leave. She does, and Robert Sean Leonard is sad to have to read lines again. I have a feeling he's perfectly happy having Wilson sit in the background looking confused, and even happier when Wilson isn't there at all.
