Foreman, Taub, and Martha arrive at Joe's house and Martha bores them to death with comments on Joe's house's architecture. For some reason, she doesn't say anything about how very Southern Californian this supposed New Jersey house looks. She apologizes for freezing up in the meeting room, saying that being next to a "legend" like House was very intimidating, but now that she's around "ordinary people," she feeling much more talkative. Maybe she shouldn't be, because now Taub and Foreman are insulted. Martha shuts up for a second and notices that Foreman is picking Joe's lock. She uses her geniusness to infer that this means they are not invited guests. They couldn't have given her a heads-up during the ride over? Now she's all freaked out about breaking into Joe's house and won't cross the threshold.
Taub and Foreman check out the kitchen first. Foreman is surprisingly positive about Martha, saying he likes her freshness and enthusiasm and that Taub should give her a chance. Taub says the fact that Martha has no practical experience or medical degree means more work for all of them, since they'll have to supervise her at all times. Foreman suspects that Taub is just mad that there's yet another person on the team smarter than he is, as Foreman includes himself on the list of people smarter than Taub. He proves this by being better at looking through the garbage and finding an empty bottle of unpasteurized apple cider.
While Foreman updates House on the cider and the chances that it could have liver-damage-causing E.coli, Taub only wants House to know that Martha wouldn't enter the house. Foreman says that Taub is jealous of Martha's intelligence, but House points out that Taub must be used to working with people who are smarter than him by now, so he thinks it's more that Martha's youth and med student status makes him feel that much older. House tells Taub to collect Masters and start treating Joe for E.coli.
