House asks Foreman whether the white blood cell count was high. Foreman says it wasn't. House holds out a hand to collect the proceeds of his fifty-dollar wager, but Foreman isn't finished yet: Brandon's white blood cell count is actually really low, and still dropping. His immune system is shot. House and Foreman were both wrong. I'm sure they'll donate the betting pool to a deserving charity.
Brandon has to go to a "clean room," because when you don't have an immune system, anything could kill you. I'm sad to report the clean room doesn't look anything like John Travolta's awesome set-up in The Boy in the Plastic Bubble. Brandon and Chase step into a disinfectant vacuum tunnel thing, Chase wearing heavy-duty anti-germ-spreading-gear and Brandon wearing nothing. He is given the choice of covering his bits to prevent embarrassment or covering his ears to prevent deafness. Disinfectant vacuums are loud. Outside, Cameron and Foreman tell Mindy and the Branrents about Brandon's new germ-free lifestyle. "If he gets a cold, he'll die," Foreman says. Even if he goes to a doctor who isn't House.
