House happily accepts the guy's money, and suddenly Cuddy is rushing into the room, outraged to hear that House thinks she sits around all day on her bureaucratic ass. Taub is close behind, making sure to tell House that he was just doing as House asked. House protests that Taub never mentioned to Cuddy that he praised Cuddy's ass as "well-formed" while he was accusing her of sitting on it. Cuddy doesn't seem to care. She thinks they should treat Della for infection before rejection. House immediately agrees with her and scolds Taub for taking his problems to Cuddy instead of House. House is saying all the right things here, which should really stick out like a sore thumb to Cuddy, since he's never acted like this before. But she's too busy being all indignant about House's comment about her ass. "I said well-formed!" he repeats. It doesn't seem to make her any happier. She takes her ample yet well-formed ass out of there, and House hangs his head before telling Taub he can't judge him since he hasn't seen Cuddy naked. "She does have great cans," says old dad, who's been sitting there this entire time. I kind of love that neither Cuddy nor Taub noticed or cared that there's some random ancient guy hanging out with House.
Taub gripes to Chase about their pussy-whipped boss. Chase still doesn't care, so Taub somehow draws the conclusion that Chase must also have a new girlfriend. Chase says it's more like four of them. Well, yes. When you're a hot young doctor, it should be pretty easy to date whoever you want. Taub is annoyed about this because we're apparently going to start another story arc about how much he doesn't like being married, and then their pagers go off. Della's lung is getting worse, so the antibiotics Cuddy made them give her aren't working and they can assume the problem is organ rejection after all.
Wilson finds House in the cafeteria hovering over a bowl of salad. Wilson takes the salad to mean Cuddy is really screwing with House's head, as he usually hates salad because House is, after all, an 8-year-old boy. House says that his idea to send his Cottages to Cuddy and hope they could stand up to her better than he can didn't work. Wilson suggests that House's next plan be one he develops with Cuddy, and helps himself to a bite of House's salad. Wilson loves salad because he is, after all, a 50-year-old woman. Taub and Chase walk up and say that the immunosuppressants aren't working on Della either, which means both of their theories were wrong. House says that means their positive test for LAM must have been wrong and Della's lungs were failing for another reason in the first place. The Evil Transplant Committee is going to be furious when they find out that they wasted an organ like this. With that, a cafeteria guy hands House his actual lunch order, a plate of fries. He asks if he can take away House's salad, but House explains that it isn't even his -- it just happened to be on the table when he sat down. Well, Wilson, that's what you get for trying to eat someone else's lunch without asking if it was actually his lunch first.
