Quick, House! To the emotional bankruptcy of Clinic duty! A husband and wife are there, and while the wife's the one with the fatigue and sore breasts, the husband's the one who won't give her a chance to say anything. House instadiagnoses her with a hot tub-related problem, but the husband denies that his wife has had any exposure to a hot tub. House tries to give the wife a chance to say she used a hot tub during a business trip, but she speaks up for the first time to deny that as well. Cuddy walks right on into the exam room to talk to House, and he's happy for the chance to think of more ways to give the wife an excuse for how she was in a hot tub without her husband but not having an affair. He says this out loud, but it still manages to go over the wife's head. Cuddy's big important question that she had to compromise a patient exam to ask? "What's going on with Cameron?" As soon as House says Cameron doesn't want to sleep with him, Cuddy is satisfied, and House notes that Cuddy didn't really want to know what was up with Cameron -- just that whatever it is has nothing to do with House. Cuddy's busted. The husband loses his patience and asks how this is a medical crisis more important than whatever's going on with his wife. "A lot of STDs hang in the balance!" House says. But he'll pay for turning around to make that clever quip, as when he turns back to Cuddy, she's gone. As for the wife, she'll need vinegar compresses four times a day on her breasts for the skin infection she picked up in the hot tub she used without her husband. I think the wife's "I'm busted!" face is actually better than Cuddy's.
Doug is in the post-surgery recovery room that looks an awful lot like the Coma Barracks from a few episodes back. Foreman walks in and hits Doug and Franni with medical jargon before simplifying that the biopsy showed no signs of cancer. He sounds all smart until he asks Doug how his leg feels. Duh. "It hurts," Doug says. Foreman removes the surgery bandage to reveal that the scar isn't very scar-y at all. In fact, it's still bleeding. A lot. Foreman looks at Doug's other leg and sees it's all discolored and calls out for some fresh frozen plasma, which everyone knows is much better for you than canned plasma. Doug's eyes roll back in his head as he suffers from blood loss. Great post-surgery care there, PPTH.
