House's next patient is a small child who has asthma, but doesn't regularly use his inhaler since his mother doesn't like the idea of her young child taking such "strong medicine." House loves medicine (a little too much), so he's furious at the mother and lectures her about how important it is for growing children to have oxygen as the kid stares at House's bad leg, like, you're a little too old to be that rude, kid. As House starts to explains the wonders of steroids on asthma patients, the kid keeps staring, and then House stops talking and runs out of the room. What happened? Is he self-conscious about his leg? Does he need another Vicodin fix?
...nope! House just has a brilliant idea about Miss Radfafa's treatment. He sends his team an urgent page, which they get while visiting Miss Radfafa, trying to get a medical history that isn't FILLED with EVIL HUMAN LIES like about how her mother died from a "heart attack," i.e. her mother was a syphilitic cross-dresser. The team leaves the room to answer House's page, and are annoyed to see he's right outside the room, but paged them because he didn't feel like actually walking into a room with a patient in it. Why didn't House consider pathology as an exciting career field? The only patients you need to see then are dead, and dead men tell no tales. Anyway, House thinks Radfafa has cerebral vasculitis, which can be cured by steroids. As he speaks, Miss Radfafa isn't too sick to lift her head off the pillow and look through the blinds of her room to see Dr. House. She stares long and hard at his cane, because people with mobility issues are just that much of a novelty for those in the greater Trenton area. Anyway, Foreman and Cameron quickly determine that House doesn't have much more to go on than an assumption, but he wants to pump Radfafa full of steroids anyway. He figures that if he's right, Miss Radfafa will get better and his theory will be proven correct. "And if we're wrong?" asks Cameron. "Then her voice will deepen and she'll get ass acne," says House. Actually, he just says that if the steroids don't work then they'll have ruled something out.
