Henry hangs out and tries not to die. Braindead Laura's in the next bed over, which has to be a little disconcerting. Agent Weiss stops by to see her and probably boast about how he kneed that asshole doctor in the crotch for her.
House's limp is even more pronounced than usual as he enters the meeting room. Cameron, of course, notices and is immediately concerned. House brushes her off and tells the crew that before they can give Henry the heart, they need to figure out what was causing Laura's symptoms. Foreman doesn't see the point in this; he figures that the heart was turned down for a reason, and that putting it in Henry will just kill Henry, too. Not, House says, if they cure Laura first. Chase is dubious, although it's hard to make out what he says since he's got a coffee stirrer sticking out of his mouth. What is it with him and chewing on wooden things? Is he building a dam or something? Cameron is taking a while to catch on, and asks if House is trying to "cure death." This gives House the chance to let out his best mad-scientist laugh -- which is truly glorious -- and then bring her up to speed with his plan. They'll treat Laura's infection and make her heart nice and healthy for Henry. Foreman nay-says that Laura probably had the flu as well as hep C. Man, is he stuck on that hep C thing or what? You'd think they actually had a positive test result! Oh, wait. Anyway, Foreman is told not to speak again unless it's to be helpful. On Chase's suggestion that Laura has a gallbladder infection, she gets an MRI.
