House canes over to the pharmacy and asks for thirty-six Vicodins and change for a dollar. He uses the quarters to buy a bunch of sugar pills from the Placebo dispenser next to the M&M machine. He then returns to the pharmacy window, where a bottle of Vicodins has been left completely unattended, and does a quick switcheroo of the precious, precious painkillers with the sugar pills. He slams the bottle back on the counter and tells the pharmacist to give them to the guy in Exam Room 2. Except that the sugar pills look totally different than the Vicodins and there are only, like, seven of them in that bottle, so you'd think someone on the pharmacy staff would see right through House's little ploy. You'd think wrong.
Foreman and Cameron talk about their crusty boss as they sift through Miss Radfafa's crusty trash. They're in different rooms of the house, so they shout to each other, which you'd think would be one of the first things on Guy Who Got Caught Breaking And Entering's no-no list. But he's too busy grousing about his asshole boss and excusing his criminal past with the "I came from a bad neighborhood" line to care about things like not getting arrested again. As Cameron meets him in the kitchen, Foreman sits down to a nice little snack of the ham and mustard he found in Radfafa's fridge. Miss Radfafa, I'd like to remind you, has been in the hospital for over a month. I'm not sure which of Foreman's meals is nastier: the infected egg salad sandwich or the months-old cold cuts. Foreman bitches about African-American history and all the work he put into getting good grades at one of the best medical schools in the country, only to be hired because of his criminal record. Cameron points out that neither her grades nor her education was as good as Foreman's. He asks her how she got the job, then. She frowns.
Foreman reports back to House that they didn't find anything in Radfafa's home that would shed light on her problem. "It's not a tumor," House Schwarzeneggers, adding that Radfafa is declining too quickly. The only thing Foreman and Cameron did find out is that Radfafa is not Wilson's cousin, because he is apparently Jewish and she had ham in her fridge. Wilson says that a lot of Jews don't keep kosher, and a lot of Jews have non-Jew relatives besides. Jewish or not, Foreman says that most cousins are on a first-name basis, and Wilson just called Rebecca "Rachel." Either Wilson is a sucky cousin or a sucky doctor, or both. In the background, Chase starts laughing. House is not entertained. "You idiot!" he shouts. But he's not saying that to Robert the LIAR -- he's talking to Foreman. Because ham could mean neurocysticercosis -- a tapeworm in her brain. Cameron thinks it's a real leap to go from someone eating ham to having a deadly tapeworm. House asks what happens when you give steroids to someone with a tapeworm. Foreman is forced to reply that the patient gets a little better before she gets worse.
