Park tells Mrs. Patient that she doesn't have to stay all night. Then Park retreats to the monitor room so the Patient family can have a scene. He says that having a well-stocked bunker is just like having a spare tire. You'd rather have a bunch of automatic weapons and not need them than the reverse, right? He's got a lot of colorful wires attached to his head. But the real problem is that he's suddenly bleeding from his knee!
Everyone convenes in House's office. The patient has a fever now. If he's paranoid (which Park still says he's not), it's been that way for a year. They speculate that it might be systemic sclerosis, so Taub wants to biopsy him and start on medicine. Park wants to wait for the results of the biopsy before starting the treatment, which leads House to dare Adams to disagree with her. She doesn't, so House calls them both idiots. Everyone but Park scurries off to start the latest plan, but she stays behind for a showdown with House. Essentially, she objects to being manipulated. Not to being called an idiot, mind you, because she doesn't think House really thinks that. But she thinks that if House feels the need to manipulate her into being useful, that's a real problem. House says he's harassing her partly to make her useful and partly to amuse himself. He assures her that people respect her, although they don't like her. It didn't seem to me that she was worried much about what the rest of the team thought. I think she just wants House to stop trying to cause trouble. Good luck with that!
Chase and Taub hook the patient up to tubes. He insists he's not a nutcase. He's very short of breath. But nothing interesting happens right away, so we go to a different scene.
House is still doing clinic hours. He's looking at the hands of some dude who thinks he has frostbite even though he hasn't been in the cold. House's diagnosis is that the silver nitrate on the petty cash the guy stole has dyed his fingers blue. So he recommends a vacation until his fingers look normal. I should mention that this guy looks exactly like Murderface from Metalocalypse. As opposed to all the other Murderfaces out there, I guess.
Foreman sees House leaving and snaps at him for leaving before his clinic hours are done. Then he's kind of mean to the nurse. House was leaving because he got an emergency page (seriously? These guys still have pagers?) from Wilson, who is caught in a net dangling from House's ceiling. House enters his home and triumphantly orders Wilson to admit he couldn't find the gun. Then he makes Wilson call him "clever," not "devious."
