Tritter leaves House looking a little rattled, and Foreman and Cameron walk in. Cameron asks who Tritter is, and House replies that Cuddy has widened her sperm donor search to include Neanderthals. I pick up on the fact that House pronounced the "th" in the word when it is actually, contrary to what you'd expect, pronounced with a hard "t" sound. Oh, the things you learn in the paleoanthropology class you're still not sure why you took. The Cottages pick up on House's little slip about Cuddy looking for sperm donors. Oops! House immediately says that he was kidding, but a stricken glance of "oops, my bad" flashes across his face for an instant.
About their comatose patient, Foreman says that they've ruled out Pickwick's syndrome and the steroid treatment has had no effect. In fact, George now has a fever. Cameron reports that House and George have "the same taste in home furnishings and women." So...Pier One and Frozen faces? No..."Danish modern and Russian gymnasts," House says. "Pianos and prostitutes," Cameron reports, and says that they should test George for neurosyphilis immediately because Cameron hates sex. How does Cameron know that House used a prostitute anyway? I mean, sure, he's mentioned it, but I would have always assumed he was kidding. She hangs out outside his house every night, doesn't she? House rejects this idea, saying that people only get STDs from people they trust and don't protect themselves from. When it comes to prostitutes, you're gonna triple-bag. And we all know that condoms are 100% effective, so there's no way you could get something from someone while wearing one. House insists that George's illness has something to do with his weight. He orders an MRI of his brain. Foreman points out that George exceeds the weight limit on the MRI and the CAT scan machines. House points out that they can either do an MRI or start George on a treatment that could be fatal if they're wrong about what he has.
