Chase tries to prepare Addie for the fun needle-eye-sticking test while her parents stand around and fret. Mom worriedly says that she just wants to know what's wrong with her daughter. She'll have to wait another forty minutes for that. Chase tells Addie that while the needle will "look scary" as it heads towards her eye, she won't feel it. Good for her, but I certainly felt a pain in my eye when we had to see the needle go inside hers.
House dumps the amphetamines into a mortar and pestle and smashes them into little bits before dumping the powder into one of two cups of coffee on his desk. I still don't know why they're trying to pretend that these paper cups that clearly came from the craft services truck are from a Starbucks-esque place that puts quotes on them. House stirs the coffee/speed mixture and puts the top on the cup just as Wilson enters the office. House quickly assumes the "I wasn't doing anything!" position with accompanying adorably innocent facial expression and tells Wilson he got him an espresso to pay him back for all the coffees Wilson has bought for him in the last couple weeks. He offers Wilson the non-speed-injected cup, but Wilson is too suspicious of House's sudden unprecedented generosity to take it. He comments that House buying him a coffee is something he only thought would happen as he watched the four horsemen of the apocalypse flying past the window. But House's espresso offer is too appealing for Wilson to turn down outright. He cleverly takes the cup that House wasn't offering -- the one filled with speed, for House is even more clever than Wilson. House shrugs and drinks the regular coffee while Wilson looks victorious at having outsmarted House.
