Cut to House and Wilson, having lunch outside. House admits that he has no idea what's wrong with Dan and all that brain talking stuff was bullshit that he thought "sounded cool." Dan's parents come outside to enjoy their coffees and House is all "Oh, crap," because now he has to be held accountable for his actions. The Dan family walk up and yell at House for sitting around doing nothing while their son is dying. House softens his tone and says he understands that they need to vent. Dad accuses House of being "condescending," and that surely isn't the first time House has been told that. Dad then points out that House hasn't even seen their son. House makes it clear that even without seeing Dan, he's well aware of the kid's test results and vital signs. "Go hold his hand," House says, his tone sympathetic. Why, he'll even bus their tray. What a sweetheart! I was wrong about House this whole time -- I thought he was an arrogant asshole who hated people, and here he is showing his softer side! Oh, wait. After the parents are out of earshot, House asks Wilson for sample bags, so he can run DNA tests on the parents' saliva and win his bet. The kindness was just a front so he could get what he wanted. "You're an ass," says Wilson.
House walks in on Foreman and Cameron doing some more sleep brain wave test stuff on Dan, who can be seen sleeping in the next room on a monitor. House asks if they can switch the monitors to General Hospital. They cannot. House notices that Cameron isn't doing anything but waiting for lab results to come back, so he gives her a special assignment: she is to run a DNA test on two Styrofoam cups marked "Mommy" and "Daddy???" Cameron is appalled, but goes with it. Someone should do some lumbar punctures on her to make sure she actually has a spine.
House limps along the hallway and meets up with our Sue-Happy patient, who has some papers for him. House was expecting this, and grabs the papers before telling the patient that he has gonorrhea. Guy says that House is lying. House says that false positives do happen, and that the guy can have his doctor run a second test. D'oh! The guy sued all the other doctors in New Jersey. House says that gonorrhea is considered a "public health issue" that must be reported to the state, who will be sure to call the guy's wife and let her know what she's being exposed to. The guy tries to grab his papers back from House, apparently thinking better of the lawsuit. "Unh unh!" says House, whisking his hand away and hopping into an elevator. "These are mine now. I'll see you in court." He grins smugly at the patient as the elevator doors close.
