Sometime later, House limps out of the office and tells his waiting team to go ahead with the MRI: "She folded." They scatter, and House tells Wilson, who's hanging out for no discernible reason, that he had to promise to work four hours a week at the clinic until he's made up the last six year's worth of time, which will be sometime in the year 2054. "You better love this cousin a lot," House grumps. "Not as much as I love you," Wilson thinks to himself.
We finally proceed with the MRI. Miss Radfafa looks nervous as she gets strapped in, probably because she's wondering what the hell hospital this is where doctors' authorizations get pulled and replaced willy-nilly. Cameron presses a button, and Radfafa slides into the PHILIPS BRAND MRI tube. The cameras put the fish-eye lens on for close-ups of poor Miss Radfafa in the tube, because that adds an extra special sense of claustrophobia and confinement. If you've ever had an MRI, you know that it's impossible NOT to feel claustrophobic. You have to remain perfectly still for, like, twenty minutes, and you're in this narrow tube, and there are all these weird thumping and clicking noises around you that are so loud that you have to wear earplugs. Three seconds in, Miss Radfafa is complaining that she doesn't feel "so good." A teacher who uses "good" where she is supposed to use "well" must be pretty sick. But the doctors ignore her and the MRI continues. Miss Radfafa starts gasping for air. The camera travels into her open mouth and down her throat, which abruptly slams shut in our face. How rude!
In the booth, Cameron starts to panic that Radfafa isn't responding to her calls. Chase tells Cameron to relax because Radfafa probably just fell asleep. Unless narcolepsy is one of the symptoms of Radfafa's mystery brain ailment, I'm going to go with a "NO WAY, IDIOT" on that one. Cameron runs out and shuts down the MRI, immediately determining that Radfafa is having an allergic reaction to the gadolinium. They pull her out of the tube as the soundtrack holds a note ominously. Radfafa is no longer conscious and she isn't breathing. So she gets a tracheotomy. Aw, those things leave unsightly scars. Miss Radfafa is going to be pissed when she wakes up from that nap.
