And now Wilson and Sam are fighting. Wilson does indeed have a list of things Sam did when they were married that annoyed him, none of which he told her about at the time. So that's his fault, as Sam points out. Instead of talking to her, he resented and avoided her. "I'm getting a lecture on communication from someone who had her lawyer inform me our marriage was over," Wilson retorts, then walks out of the room rather than address the issue, because that's how he rolls.
Taub and Hadley hang out in the MRI booth, where Hadley applauds Taub's "stones" in asking his wife for an open marriage. "The conversation sort of got away from me. It was a train wreck," Taub admits. What was he expecting? He's an idiot. Hadley starts talking about something she read that suggests that people who are unfaithful have something medically wrong with them, and maybe that's Taub's problem and he just can't help it. Taub doesn't seem thrilled about that, which surprises Hadley, who says she figured he'd be happy to have genetics as an excuse. "I'm 5'6" and have a receding hairline. I hate genetics," Taub says. Ha ha ha! Who wrote this episode? Clearly, they hate Peter Jacobson. Hadley says Taub could always get hair plugs (like House, except we're supposed to forget that he had a bald spot in the first season) and wear lifts, but he says being short and bald doesn't hurt anyone. Not to mention that he seems to have no trouble getting girls despite it, which is really the only reason why men bother to look good in the first place. Hadley says the genetic predisposition she's decided that Taub has only hurts people when he tries to deny it. What is she even talking about? She wants Taub to be honest with his wife about his inability to be faithful? That can't possibly be a good idea. Taub says there's no evidence of anything wrong with Julia's adrenal glands and that he won't stop trying to be a faithful husband. Hadley sees something on Julia's lung.
Back at Wilson's house, the fight is still raging. Wilson has leftover feelings of anger at Sam for how she served him with divorce papers (especially since that's what caused him and House to meet, which has only had a negative affect on his life thereafter. I'd be mad, too), while Sam refuses to take all of the blame for their marriage ending, saying that Wilson kept his feelings bottled up and pretended not to notice that their marriage was crumbling around them. "We hadn't had a conversation in months!" Sam says; "when you were home, it was like talking to a block of ice." Wilson says he was just really tired because he had to work two jobs so that Sam could take a nonpaying internship. Sam says Wilson was the one who told her to take it in the first place, because he clearly has no idea how to express himself. Wilson decides to give that a try with this: "you were being a selfish bitch."
