Last round of questions. House claims he hasn't heard that Chase regained movement. Cofield turns off the recorder and asks if House is really that indifferent to the well-being of his coworkers. House shrugs, "Are you gonna have me fired for bad manners?" He puts his feet up on the table between him and Cofield. Cofield claims he's trying to understand why House insists on acting like an ass. Recorder on. He says, "Put the Vicodin away, Dr. House." House makes no attempt at all to sound convincing when he says, "My leg hurts." POP! The Vicodin bottle blasts confetti everywhere. Cofield is not amused. House gets Epiphany Look. House: "Two explosions." He gets up and leaves. Cofield calls after him, "We're not done here!"
House goes out to the ambulance, where they refuse to open the doors. It drives away with Bill inside. House limps after the wife and uses his cane to stop the elevator doors from closing. I like when he uses his cane as a prop because it reminds me of that great episode of NewsRadio. He tells her there's a tumor in the lymph nodes. The explosion caused the tumors to break open, which explains everything. What about the psychotic break? "Turns out we caused that." He tells her to tell the new doctors about total-body radiation and plasmapheresis. She says, "Move your cane, please."
