Back at the patient's bedside, Dr. Amber is getting her bitchface on and making the guy feel even worse than a guy on his deathbed already feels by continuing to berate him about lying to his wife about his job. Chase cuts her off and reminds her that the guy's personal life is not medically relevant right now. The guy's wife comes in sporting celebrity sunglasses to cover her shiner. He starts to apologize profusely while Amber makes tsk tsk noises to herself. Chase tells the wife that they are treating him for a systemic fungal infection, but his wife doesn't buy it and starts asking hard to answer questions about why no one else at "the office" has the same infection. Chase tries to shrug it off, but Dr. Amber's death ray glare convinces the patient that he needs to tell his wife The Truth.
In equally annoying but entirely different storylines, Wilson is talking to a patient when the brassy sounds of a mariachi band interrupt his conversation. Obviously it is House auditioning some light entertainment for Cuddy's Evening to Remember (which I think was the theme of my prom). Wilson points out that if House goes through with this plan he will end up spending the evening alone at home with a sock. (Um, ew.) House swears that the band is great and Cuddy will love it.
Back in the medical mystery side of things, Chase and Dr. Amber (who is dressed like a naughty school girl but with a doctor's coat to ruin the mood) watch their patient tell his wife that he is a lying liar who lies. Oh and also they are broke. Like, really really broke. Strangely the wife is not super thrilled about this or the fact the gawking doctors knew about her completely screwed up life well before she did. She asks them to deliver a message to him since they are on such close terms: She's leaving him. Also, his fever is back, NOT THAT SHE CARES. The doctors go to check on him and find the situation is worse than they suspected: The guy doesn't have insurance either! Also, he's gone deaf. Before or after his wife yelled at him? This new symptom has the doctors stumped. Is his imaginary Vicodin addiction causing hearing loss? No because it never reached oti-toxic levels. (Now kids, remember that word for the SATs, mmmkay?) So what could it be? I know, how about some more tests? As the team breaks from its huddle, Taub tells Foreman he is moving out. Their friendship is too important to him. Foreman shrugs and tells him to make sure he gets his keys back, because he won't be able to ask him that question every day when he sees him at work.
