Hadley, meanwhile, is playing pool in the doctor's lounge while she waits for her worried co-workers to give her some much-needed attention. Enter Foreman, who says he knows she's going to Rome, thanks to the flight information she left in her locker that he broke into. Not only that, but she's leaving tomorrow. Hadley "jokes" that she's going because she heard they were tearing down the Colosseum to build a karaoke bar. Foreman thinks it's because a prominent hospital there is doing a Huntington's trial. It's still in the very risky beginning stages, though, so Foreman doesn't think Hadley should be doing it. I agree with him, only because the last time Hadley did a Huntington's trial, she got a brain tumor in like one day. Hadley gets all pissy about Foreman prying into her personal life and refuses to tell him anything.
House and Cuddy bathe. House ruins the moment by asking Cuddy how to define their relationship and throwing out the word "open." "You think I want to see other people?" she asks. House says they were both emotional last night and their hooking up was "impulsive," so he'd understand if she didn't want to be in a serious relationship immediately. Way to totally pretend you weren't angling for a threesome, House. Cuddy tells him to stop analyzing and enjoy the moment. Yeah, that's going to happen. The conversation really picks up as Cuddy says that House's magic bath is "burning [her] ladyparts." "How do you think my anus feels?" he responds, really setting quite the mood. They agree it's time to get out of the bath. Cuddy doesn't seem to wonder why it smells like aftershave and mint.
Foreman and Chase approach Cuddy's assistant, who is calling all over the state to try to find a neurosurgeon. So far, he's been unsuccessful. Also, he reports, Cuddy's phone keeps going straight to voicemail. "I'm a neurosurgeon," Chase says. Despite the very serious look on his face, the assistant knows he's lying, as Cuddy smartly made him research House and his team as soon as he started working there. So he knows that while Chase did a neurosurgery residency, he is not board-certified. Also, Chase looks about 13 years old, so even if he was an actual neurosurgeon, no one would ever be able to take him seriously. And finally, Cuddy's assistant totally looks like Mr. Bean.
